Came here for business once before last month and both times experienced extremely friendly staff. The property is well kept and very clean. A nice glowing fireplace was very welcoming upon arrival and a nice place to sit by while having a morning coffee. Everything worked just fine on the guest room including the heat. The decor is perfect for... More

We love to stay at the Anchorage in Winter; their gas fireplace suites are a real treat. The continental breakfast is just right, and the heated pool area and locker room are very nice in cold weather.

Staff is exceptionally courteous and helpful. Amenities like the hot tub makes the long day of walking easier. The gazebo was the perfect location to watch the fireworks during xmas by the sea. All the shops and restaurants quaintly decorated and xmas parade and tree lighting was very entertaining adding joy to the holiday season.the recently added 360 bar was... More

We booked a room that was described as a partial ocean view. We arrived at night could not really tell if there was a view or not. The next day we could hear the ocean but could only see if standing in the parking lot. You should not be paying extra for that. The room was quite small and the... More

I stayed at the Anchorage 3 nights over Christmas 2015 when my partner and I were there to get married. I highly recommend The Anchorage! The room was spotlessly clean, every staff person I interacted with was extremely pleasant and helpful, the ocean views were spectacular, and the sound proofing is excellent. Although it was very crowded, you could not... More

We have stayed at the Anchorage in the past and the rooms are decent and the location is good. We made the mistake of leaving our iPhone charger in the room. We called a few hours after checking out and were told we would get a call back, never did. We have called each of the 4 days since leaving... More

Very nice staff. This property has been fully updated inside and out. It was fully decorated for Christmas and was beautiful. Rooms were very nice and very clean. We will definitely be back next year at the same time. Christmas Prelude in Kennebunkport was great! The Steak house and Jonathan's restaurant down the street were both excellent. Don't bother eating... More

Our stay at the Anchorage by the Sea was nice! Our room was front and center with an amazing ocean view. It is close to everything in Ogunquit and we were able to walk to dinner, surrounding attractions, etc. Not to mention- it is directly on the Marginal Way! Nice place. Would recommend to others! The bathrooms could be updated... More

We've been coming to Ogunquit for 12 years and have stayed at the anchorage by the sea many years. It has really progressed over the years. Beds are really comfortable, room is nice. Beautiful view, friendly staff. They have a bar and restaraunf now as well. Always will recommend staying here.

This was our second trip to this hotel and I hope there are more. This hotel appears crisp and clean from all angles. The facilities are immaculate and the views are extraordinary. New this year was an on-site restaurant centered between two wings of the hotel. It was a little chilly but the views from the upstairs deck and bar... More
