I found the property lovely. The room was clean and bright. It is close to the town, the beach and Marginal Way. The pool was nice but crowded so we stayed on the lawn to read and relax. There were many families with children but that didn't bother us. It might have bothered some other folks. Overall great experience. We... More

This was our fourth stay at the Anchorage. In the past, we've stayed in the Lightship. Now that our daughter is older, we stayed in the Shore Lower rooms (on the Portside of the hotel). The room was much nicer than the Lightship since it was recently renovated. However, it was MUCH louder than the Lightship. The walls are thin... More

Where do I start? I am a Platinum business traveler and this is by far the worst customer service I have ever experienced anywhere. When you check in it starts with a grunt and a frown. Upon getting towels from the pool to take them to the Beach my wife was stopped before she left the Pool area and yelled... More

I wanted to love this place. It's beautiful. Unfortunately there are many many issues plaguing this property and managers who defend themselves and give excuses instead of listening to customer feedback and acting on it. The customer is certainly not a priority here. The one great quality is the location. Lots of other hotels in Ogunquit fit the bill with... More

We have stayed at the Anchorage every summer for 15 years. We have always loved it here. That changed this year. It is very painfully clear that they would rather NOT have families stay with them anymore. They took out the kiddie pools. They will not let a child even hold a toy in their hand in the big pool....

Even though the physical location of this resort is beautiful - stay away!! If you book the condos- they are far from the main part of the property, you have to walk in the dark around the back for quite a distance - not great for kids. High priced accommodations are on top of staff housing. They come and go... More

We stayed there with the family. Everything was great, pool, food by the pool, dining, staff at dining room went above and beyond. The rooms on the side of the main resort are very nice and renovated but my kids stayed in the garden house as well as the graham house for an outrageous price and those two condos are... More

We have been to Ogunquit many times and always stay at the Anchorage By The Sea. In the summer we prefer the peace and quiet of the Lightship building. This time we were given a corner room on the second floor. So spacious with a king bed and the fireplace came in handy as the weather was damp and cool... More

Each time I was told that it would be done later. At 5:00 made same complaint and went to dinner. Returned after dinner and room not cleaned. If verizon phone service or... More

Recent visit to Anchorage. Paid for what I thought was Ocean View. Later found out it was considered the Beach Front. Able to view ocean only after STANDING against railing outside of room. Sitting down view was blocked by railing.View ended up being overlooking parking lot and restaurant. Last night of our stay, our sheets had not been changed but... More
