The hotel is well run and the rooms are clean but not fancy. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast is tasteless, so seek out one of the quaint places to eat in Boothbay. The setting is beautiful and views are priceless. Enjoyed the kayaking and pool is heated and clean. HOT Tub Bonus too!

Thanks for taking the time to give us your thoughts. Most guests really enjoy our complimentary full, hot breakfast buffet and the wide variety of selections available. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the great views, our kayaks and the hot tub. Look forward to seeing you again! Frank

Had a nice stay at Ocean Gate. The room may need some updating and the breakfast is adequate but what a view. We were able to bird watch right from the room! My husband made use of the kayak and pool and enjoyed both. Close to Boothbay Harbor and the Botanical Gardens.

We booked a king room with sea view and what we got was definitely what we had expected. We unfortunately arrived a bit late and the sun was already gone but the view onto the bay from the room was amazing. The rooms and the amenities could be more modern. They are very very dated. The breakfast was very good...

Booked a two night stay here for my moms birthday. We checked in and the grounds were beautiful. We booked a suite and upon walking up to our room noticed the windows were all open. When we entered our room the smell of mold and cigarettes was so strong we were unable to stay. We were offered little apology but...

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent visit. I'm very happy that you noticed the attention to detail that we give our grounds when you arrived. Unfortunately, the prior guest had violated our strict non-smoking policy in your assigned room. While I appreciate your comments and am certainly sorry for your disappointment, I do have to...

This was a wonderful place to stay. The building we stayed in had an awesome view out into the bay, and we spent every night there sitting out on the balcony relaxing and watching the sun set. The room was extremely nice. Would definitely stay there again.

Our expectations were in check, and the Ocean Gate didn't disappoint. It is campy and some of the facilities had some age to them, but overall it was in good shape (room was clean and well maintained) and had enough to entertain our family of five (7, 7, and 4) for a long weekend. We would return. ROOM: We stayed...

Never closed the curtains for the balcony doors, so we could enjoy the view upon waking up in the mornings. We were probably in one of the oldest buildings on the property; but it was clean, comfortable and included a nice buffet breakfast. Nice pool, free use of kayaks and canoes, and easy access to Boothbay Harbor, but in a...

We stayed at the Ocean Gate for 3 nights in August 2016 with our 2 daughters aged 12 and 10. We took 2 rooms both of a good size (although to share one would have been crowded) with beautiful views over the water. We loved the complimentary kayaking from the private dock, the pool, the quiet walks and the mini...

It doesn't deserve 5 stars as we traditionally understand them, but the overall experience was 5 star. Facilities are a little older/tired but clean and functional. Management was helpful. No nickel and diming going on here, everything is included. The view from our room was great.

Exceeded expectations from the grounds, swimming pool and hot tub to our gorgeous room right on the waters edge to the staff and delicious breakfast. They know how to treat guests right. It didn't hurt that we had 3 glorious days of sunny hot summer weather too. 😎
