Great for vacation

Posted 17-Jun-2015
Pros: Location, room size
Cons: stronger internet service for any business travellers
Location: plenty of hiking trails (Boothbay harbor Land Trust had a great brochure), plenty of excursions on lobster boats or harbor tours, good restaurants
The property is located in an idyllic spot of Boothbay Harbor 5 minutes from the little town where you can find restaurants and shops. There is plenty to do while staying on the property and I only wish I had time to enjoy them. since I was in Boothbay for a tax conference I was more in (semi) work mode so my only issue had to do with the very weak internet signal. since they are relatively remote, AT&T cell phone service is also very spotty....so, I want to go back when I can disconnect from the business ties and really explore the property and all the amenities.

Cons: Fridge and microwave in room.
Location: We liked the location because it was not in the mass of touristy "stuff". It was a relatively short drive to restaurants and shops which suited us.
Although the weather was cold and cloudy for June, the view was great. Room was comfortable and staff was wonderful. We were 2 older females and I have trouble walking up inclines. The staff saw me walking slowly to the restaurant and turned the golf card around and offered me a ride. They also wanted to drive us back to the room after a great breakfast but I can go down hill with no trouble. They were also great giving information on what to see and do. We liked the hotel enough that we will return.

Private and quiet location with beautiful views.

Posted 8-Jun-2015
Pros: Location! Quiet, located in the woods yet on the ocean!
Cons: Musty smell of room.
Location: Hiking and walking trails.Small beach in Southport with view of light house. hot tub and pool on site. Kayaking, paddleboats available.
I loved the location. A short drive to Boothbay Harbor. Right on the Ocean! The building we stayed in was older. It was of good size and decor was new and appealing. The room was very clean yet musty smelling which may have been due to it being early in the Summer season. Staff was awesome!

Wonderful stay at Ocean Gate Resort. The location is beautiful and the grounds are very well maintained. The staff could not be friendlier or more welcoming. Exceeded our expectations.

Nice hotel with beautiful surroundings

Posted 6-Jun-2015
Pros: The proximity to water and natural beauty Hot tub and pool Ping pong table, kayaks Included breakfasts
Cons: In one room, the toilet "ran" continuously and the room smelled a little odd. Mosquitoes got into room through gaps in the door.
Location: The resort is within driving distance of many different activities in Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay, and surrounding areas: shopped, cruised, hiked, ate
We chose this hotel because we were looking for a place in the Boothbay Harbor area for a last-minute vacation for our family. We were very satisfied with our time here and made use of the resort's pool, hot tub, ping pong table, little mini-golf course, and kayaks. The view from our rooms was beautiful. Our vacation was in late May, and we found some of the local attractions were not "up and running" yet. This did not prevent us from filling five days with many activities and having a great time.

Hotel is located in a beautiful setting, but quite a distance from the center of town. Breakfast was very good and ample.

Beautiful Setting

Location and environment were excellent. I would stay in an upstairs room next time. We could hear every step on the tile entryway in the room above us. Also, the plumbing sounds from adjoining rooms were some of the loudest I have ever heard.

In the woods

Had a great stay. Great room with a beautiful view and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast was very good not your usual complimentary breakfast. The only drawback was its location was beautiful but it was a trip to anything else. I must say we stayed late fall and really couldn't take advantage of some of the offerings that would make a great place in the summer. We would come back.
