The view is beautiful and the dining staff were very pleasant. The accomodations however were less than pleasant. Our 3 night stay in a cement wall room felt somewhat like a cell. There was one semi comfortable chair and one unsteady plastic chair on the deck. There was a constant hum from a drain pipe of some sort and a...

OceanGate, General Manager at Ocean Gate Resort, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Although I'm certainly happy to hear that you were pleased with the spectacular view and courteous staff, I am disappointed that we were not given an opportunity to address your other concerns during your visit. I'm quite certain that we could have resolved them to your satisfaction. Our many repeat guests...

We were so impressed with Ocean Gate. Our entire family had a great time! The staff was very friendly. We really liked the breakfast at the resort, miniature golf, swimming pool, kayaks, view from our room, and family atmosphere. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

This property itself is very nice. Clean, spacious rooms. Great views of the water and plenty of on-site activities. My one gripe was a very weak and intermittent Wi-Fi signal. We brought this issue to the attention of management but they didn't seem overly concerned. There is a signal in various locations on the property; just not our room.

Ocean Gate has been my resort of choice for the last 3 years now. I absolutely love this place. I love the free kayaking/canoeing, breakfast, fitness room, and the other activities that they have to offer. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to have a blast.

This was our second visit to Ocean Gate Resort, where we vacationed last year. This time we selected a different pet-friendly room in one of their two Overlook Buildings. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased by our choice. Room 202 was a small, comfortably-sized apartment with full kitchen, separate living room, bedroom and large deck. The flooring throughout appeared to...

We were a bit concerned upon our initial arrival when the turnoff to the "resort" had us quickly driving down a single lane dirt/gravel road. Our room however was very nice -- we had an overlook room which is a loft type room with two sleeping areas. The deck from our room afforded a wonderful view of the harbor --...

Just returned from three nights at Ocean Gate. It's a five minute drive from Boothbay Harbor, but worlds away from the busy tourist town. The views are sensational, the spacious rooms are well designed with private terraces overlooking the bay, and the bed was very comfortable. There's a complimentary hot breakfast in the morning. The staff was very helpful, giving...

The scenery is fantastic. We had a 2nd floor room with balcony with a fantastic view of the water, trees, lobster boats and ospreys. The kids loved the kayaking, mini golf and pool. It was like being at camp, just a whole lot better. Breakfast was excellent with sausage, eggs, cereal, yogurt, coffee, juices, teas, milk, ..... The resort is...
