After 7 days in Bar Harbor, we stayed 2 nights here, and wished it could have been longer. Extremely pleasant staff, good breakfast, nice grounds. Maybe reaching to call it a resort, but we were very satisfied. The owners obviously care, and want you to have a good stay. The views over the water are great... birds, ducks, working boats,...

Just spent half a week at Ocean Gate and enjoyed it completely. Our only regret is we didn't take the time to enjoy some kayaking or canoeing. Next time we'll plan more days to spend at this terrific spot. Staff is excellent and very well trained (congratulations!) and the rooms are very comfy, if not luxurious. The view from the... More

This hotel is on a peninsula. Beautiful wooded grounds to stroll around on, but many of the rooms directly over looking (just feet from) the bay. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. Nice private balconies where you can sit, relax, and enjoy the bird life and bay views. Only a couple miles from restaurants and quaint shops to explore in... More

Even though Originally had single bed room upstairs, keeper switched us to a double on the lower floor. Very comfy room and grounds. Fog prevented us from seeing lots or trying our canoe skills. Included breakfast was quite a spread and very tasty. Set us up for the day. Ate lobster at Robinson's Wharf restaurant. Very good. Good atmosphere. Explored... More

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!

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... More

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... More

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.
