Anchorage By the Sea exceeded all expectations possible! I never knew Maine could be so beautiful, and this was the perfect place to stay! The property is quaint and homey, with beautiful views of the ocean. The pools and hot tub are so nice- I couldn't believe that this place is only 100 something $ per night!? We had a... More

Visited here for the past several winters for a get away weekend with 2 other couples. They have a nice weekend package for 2 that includes a 2 night stay, dinner for 2 at a very nice restaurant and brunch for 2. The hotel is beautiful and right on the Marginal Way (a very nice walk along the ocean). Both... More

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.
