This was our first stay at the Anchorage, but I'm sure it won't be our last! It has everything you would want - a perfect location, gorgeous ocean views, wonderful amenities, cozy rooms, comfortable beds and an absolutely extraordinary staff! The breakfast in the hotel restaurant is definitely worth a try - both the lobster omelette and the blueberry stuffed... More

I stayed at the Lightship building which is directly across the street and a 1 minute walk to the main resort. This place is great, my room was quite large with a fireplace in it but no balcony. It is quite a bit bigger than the rooms closer to the main resort. It has an outdoor pool, an indoor pool... More

Very nice motel on the water in Ogunquit. Very clean, very accommodating, plenty of parking, and right in town, so walking everywhere is very easy. Outdoor pool, indoor pool, restaurant, bar, jacuzzi, free coffee in AM, fabulous location.

We have been staying here for many years. Always quite crowded but very clean rooms and good service. Location is within walking distance to restaurants, shops and beach. Trolley stops if you don't feel like walking.

First here in 1992 with 3 generations of family, I was keen to return and relive the memories. The property is just as lovely but upgraded with restaurants, new décor and even more lovely grounds. The Towers location is perfect for quiet and comfort. The room stayed at the same temperature I desired and wasn't at all noisy. Nice big... More

The hotel has many thing going for it. The Marginal Way path starts right next to the property. It's definitely one of the highlights of the area.
