Electric heater could have been slightly better, staying on September 30 was ok but later in the year would have chilly

Such a unique property in a beautiful location. View was spectacular! Room was very clean other than a little mold around the bathroom door frame, but to be expected so close to the water. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was very good. We appreciated that the property was dog friendly as well! We will definitely recommend and hopefully be back again with friends or family.

Very rustic but beautiful view

Beautiful view but very rustic. Peaceful setting. Bathroom had been updated which was nice. Other furniture was a little dated. Travelocity stated it was less than 10 miles from where we were going to be around lunchtime in Georgetown but didn’t state that distance was by water! It was a 55 minute drive.

Restful

Due to an injury the day before our trip we weren't able to enjoy most of the amenities and facilities offered. The resort relocated us to a room which was accessible to me and did what they could to make it a restful & recoopable stay. Spent a great deal of time on the balcony enjoying the scenic views & site. Was an enjoyable stay overall. We will go back in the future.

We were pleasantly surprised. Nice hotel / resort, recently renovated with updated rooms. The views are breathtaking from the rooms and balcony. We spent a few hours floating around on one of the tandem kayaks sipping wine and exploring the waters! Some great restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the hotel. This is the place to totally unwind and relax. We highly recommend staying here and experiencing Booth Bay Harbor!

Lovely facility, disappointing rooms

Location: Lots to do, hiking, boating, visit Boothbay Harbor etc.
We did enjoy our stay at Ocean Gate but have some serious reservations about recommending. The location is great, facilities are good and the site itself is right on the water with very pretty views and landscaping. Staff is helpful but does not have much in the way of suggestions and doesn't do much to orient you to the facilities. The major issue though is the rooms. Yuck! There is an overwhelming smell of mildew. In the waterfront building, you are practically on top of the water and the smell of stagnant water/seeweed is overwhelming and the balconies as they are it's very claustrophobic. They were kind enough to switch us to a newer building which I thought would help with the mildew smell. It was just as bad. The view was better and the balcony nicer but the room positively reeked. If you are at all sensitive to must or mildew, it's a terrible place to be. I had to sleep with the door wide open to air out the room and thus had no security or privacy. We stayed out all day because I wasn't at all comfortable in the room. They would do well to remove the thick icky carpets. I'm sure that would help a lot.
