Good place to stay overall!

Posted 14-Sep-2014
This place is set up like a motel. Rooms facing the water have great views and a balcony. Breakfast is included, and some activities like kayaking are available for free. It does not have a restaurant or bar. Free Wi-Fi is available but the signal is poor in many areas, making it mostly unusable. The rec room is very basic and in need of a complete renovation. It is 15 - 20 minutes from the town center. Overall, it is one of the better places available in the area.

Ok hotel in Booth Bay.

Posted 21-Aug-2014
Pros: I like all the activities that were available for families to enjoy together.
Cons: The furniture could use some updating. Also, the room had a musty smell.
Location: The location was perfect. In a secluded area, but close enough to Booth Bay.
The hotel was run down. I expected more for the price we paid. If it wasn't for the friendly staff, it would have been disappointing. I did enjoy the activities that were available. They had a small miniature golf course, tennis court, basketball court, kayaking, and fishing. The swimming pool was heated, so that made for a good experience. Breakfast was not spectacular, but sufficient to start the day. It comprised of scrambled eggs, hash brown, sausage, biscuits and gravy, toast, pastries, fruit, different types of juices, and coffee. Ocean Gate is located in a nice secluded area and the landscape was beautiful. Overall, it was a good experience.

Idyllic Setting Close to Boothbay Harbor

Posted 8-Aug-2014
An idyllic setting on a postcard perfect quintessential Maine harbor. My wife and I wanted a short getaway from a busy summer. We were not disappointed with our selection. It is located just 2.5 miles from the quaint (but busy) village of Boothbay Harbor and only 2 miles from the Maine Botanical Gardens. It has all the amenities you would expect from a five star resort. We only stayed two days but we were so impressed with this resort that we will be returning soon....this time for longer.

Pros: Location, quiet, free kayaking, being away from the more crowded areas like Boothbay Harbor.
Cons: Bathrooms, rooms could be freshened.
Location: Kayaking, nature, lovely restaurant called Oliver's nearby (good luck finding it). Coastal Maine Botanical Garden is a must.
Nice location on a quiet island with very little commercial activity and few restaurants. Good views of the water and free kayaking and other activities (ping pong, pool, hot tub). On a wooded campus. Breakfast was generous but just OK.

Pros: It was near the water . The lawns were beautiful it was peace full and a great view Of the Sun raising and setting. Breath taking.
Cons: Some of the stations on the tv didn't have a voice and jumped up and down. Other then that no complains.
Location: You didn't have far to go to find things to do. We liked being near the water and town. Many shops to go in . Many places to eat. Many boat trips .
We had a great time the breakfast eat morning was very good sitting by the water Was also beautiful . Going in to town was fun we kept busy the whole time.

My husband, daughter & I stayed here for one night on a trip up the coast of Maine. Our time at the Ocean Gate was a highlight of our trip. We loved how secluded it was, the view was absolutely beautiful, and the landscaping around the property was lovely. Our room had a perfect view & had very comfortable furnishings. It was such a relaxing time & we definitely hope to come back!
