We stayed at the Ocean Gate in early August 2013 and had an excellent visit. Like other reviews claim, it is a short drive into downtown Boothbay Harbor which is convenient. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the fact that we were not in the middle of Boothbay and got a chance to enjoy a more "nature-centric" experience in Maine (while still having immediate access to Boothbay).
We stayed in the Pine View (we had our dog with us) and the room was fine - nothing extravagant but spacious and well kept. My parents stayed in another building and had a beautiful deck that had a great view of the water.
The pool and hot tub are a bonus and the grounds were beautifully maintained, adorned with flowers. The breakfast was only so-so but did the trick and was certainly plentiful. I also used the gym which (again) was nothing too extravagant but did the trick.
Service was excellent on all fronts - helpful, courteous and down-to-earth folks.
Overall - we enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.More
