The Anchorage is in a perfect location along the Marginal Way overlooking the ocean. It is half way between downtown, beach and scenic Perkins Cove. The pool setting is fun and relaxing with food and drinks right there. I enjoyed a back and neck massage poolside during my stay. They have classic Adirondack chairs overlooking the ocean. Definitely an awesome... More

We enjoyed a great family vacation here. The Anchorage is centrally located between downtown and Perkins Cove. Plus you can walk right on to the Marginal Way from the property. The rooms were a little small but very clean, the staff was friendly and it's even close to the beach. Our family had 3 rooms in a row and since... More

We came here for a quiet family weekend to start off the new year. The rooms are narrow, but they had all the amenities one needs. It's very clean, and we had a partial view of the ocean. The outdoor hot tub was a highlight! The location is outstanding. We were able to walk right out onto Marginal Way for... More

I've been coming to the Anchorage for several years now, as often as possible. I was there the weekend of December 13th for Ogunquit's "Christmas by the Sea" celebration with 4 friends for our annual girl's weekend and, once again, cannot say enough about the service and general atmosphere of the resort. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable A... More

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
