We arrived on opening day. Our room was clean as could be, very large, and, oh, what a view! (We were in the Cedar building.) Really nice grounds, a terrific breakfast, and a quiet location away from town combined for a memorable stay. The few opening-day-type glitches were fixed promptly and courteously. We'll be back! Also, meals at nearby Robinson's... More

What a hidden gem outside Boothbay Harbor back in the woods on the water. Beautiful view from our waterfront room with many amenities like a heated pool, hot tub, kayaks, canoes, mini golf and more. A very friendly staff was always around and more than happy to help when you had questions or needed something. Rooms were updated and comfortable.... More

We arrived on opening day intending to stay just the overnight but car trouble "forced" us to stay two! Yay! We had a renovated room with a huge picture window overlooking the cove, complete with views of an osprey nest, loons & seals! The room itself was large, clean and nicely decorated in tones of gold. My only complaint is... More

This hotel is in an excellent location overlooking the sea and is very quiet. The interior is very brown and the hotel is obviously very old. The breakfast is freshly cooked to order by very friendly staff. We liked this location and in many ways it was better than Browns in Boothbay, where the fishing boats used to wake us... More

We stayed here a couple of nights in an oceanview room. It was nice and clean although it smelled like wet dog all the time. It could have been just the ocean though. Beds were really comfortable but the bathroom was very small. There were lots of tiny bugs in there. The free breakfast was good with lots of things... More

I really cannot say enough good things about this resort. You really must try this place to see how peaceful and relaxing it is. My family spent our nineteenth year last August at Ocean Gate, a quiet oasis, 'far from the madding crowd'. Frank, the owner-manager and everyone on the staff is cheerful and helpful, you feel welcomed from the... More

We have enjoyed coming to Maine and particularly Ocean Gate and have made our reservation for this summer. We bring our 2 little schnauzers and stay in one of the apartments that overlook a serene waterway. One of the best things is that we can go to Robinson's Wharf in Southport and purchase fresh steamed lobsters and halibut and eat... More

We had a wonderful stay at Oceangate 20 years ago, and recently decided to return. New owners have a real pride in the place and it shows. Our room was very nicely appointed. Small bathroom, but adequate. The views are incredible....you could sit for hours just enjoying the scenery....and we did! Included breakfast is very nice and lots of choices.... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights a week before the resort was closing for the season. There were not too many other people staying which made it nice and quiet. In addition, the resorts sets back off the main road which also makes for a quiet stay. Our room had a great view of the... More
