Does that mean once ever or once per investigator? In either case, does anyone have an easy solution for noting that it has been used?

It's once per game, not investigator (unfortunately).

Personally, I just exhaust the location, but you could do something like put a resource token on it - just not a clue/doom token.

Edit: Some cards say "Group Limit once per game" which is once per game, as I was stating. Other cards only say "Limit once per game" which is once per game per investigator.

Thank you kind sir. Do you have the rules reference for it? I can't seem to find it.

I think the "Limit once per game" is once per investigator per game. In Rules Reference under 'Limits and Maximums' (p. 14):
Quote:
Unless stated otherwise, limits are player specific.

The game elements support this view. Otherwise, wouldn't it be redundant to have locations with "Limit once per game" and other with "Group limit once per game" if they both mean the same thing?

It is once per investigator, per game. Look in the Reference under "Limits."

This is correct. One location differs in that it is per group, and the card mentions this explicitly.

As an aside, anyone have a good way of keeping track who has used what location? In a 4 player game, it can get a bit muddled over the course of the scenario.

Tempted to just use pen and paper...

Each player picks a different token type (brain, heart, resource, doom... avoid clue for obvious reasons) and puts one of those on each location they use. Worked really well.
