This super clean resort is walking distance to every restaurant and shop in Ogunquit. The front desk staff is professional and courteous, grounds are beautifully kept and the rooms albeit simple are freshly decorated and super clean. Gorgeous surroundings...lovely stay.

We spent 2 nights here on our way further into Maine and wished we could have stayed longer. We had rooms facing the ocean and right on Marginal Way making the views breathtaking. Although the rooms were kind of small, with no special features, they were spotless; which is so much more important. The main lobby and property was decorated... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel, I can only imagine how much nicer it would be in season! The grounds are perfectly manicured and the rooms, hallways, lobby, etc are all so clean I think you could eat off the floors!! The staff were very friendly. The town of Ogunquit is very cute. Lots of places to shop, eat and drink!... More

This has to be the cleanest, and best located hotel anywhere! We just returned from a 3 night stay here, the staff is incredible, the location couldn't be better, close to both the Marginal Way and the village, and the cleaning we saw was unbelievable. Will be going back again as soon as new restaurant is up and going. Highly... More

I will drive up from York each year, after attending a fundraising auction in November.The anticipation of the outdoor hot tubs and brisk morning walk along the Marginal Way - can't be beat! The rooms are cozy and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. It would be a five star hotel for me - if there was a... More

You can not go wrong here. I come every year and without fail, have always had the best experience at The Anchorage By the Sea. The grounds are meticulously maintained and incredibly decorated (at lease for Halloween). The rooms have always been spotless, the staff is always attentive, friendly and charming. The location is perfect with a beautiful view of... More

My husband and I had, like many others, I'm sure, admired this hotel as we strolled the incomparable Marginal Way on earlier visits. Now we decided to stay here for a just-off-season weekend (the one following Columbus Day). If you know the Marginal Way, you don't need me to tell you how special it is; if you don't, imagine an...

I have stayed here many, many times and I absolutely love it. The hot tubs are fabulous, year round! I was in one last year when it was five degrees and snowing like crazy, but it was awesome. The bartender is fabulous. The rooms and view are beautiful. My only objection is that the Portside just went through an extensive... More

Stayed in the old cottage on the street. Comfortable bed. Tiny and low ceiling shower. We are not large people, so this was not a problem. Great adirondack chairs on the lawn facing the beach and ocean. Also 2 gazebos with the same view. Did not eat at the restaurant there as the lobby coffee was SO bad, it discouraged... More
