We had a great stay at Anchorage and will likely be back. We stayed at Sea Rose last year, and found the accommodations and location much better here. The room was spotless, albeit a bit small. It had a private balcony which we hung out on when the kids went to bed. We barely heard anyone from inside our room,... More

Beautiful resort. Very clean. Well located. Superb view of both the sea et the beach. Good quality restaurant. We have been there several times and will return. Best rooms are on the Starboard second floor with both ocean and beach view. They improve the resort very often.

My family just came back from three nights at the Anchorage and enjoyed our stay. The resort grounds are spotless and is located right on Marginal Way, which we walked multiple times a day. There was always activity in the resort and the staff was very friendly, especially the greeter at the "front gate". The only negative was that the... More

Originally we had planned on staying two nights but found the town well worth an additional evening. The motel is on the ocean with a fabulous mile or more walkway along the way to quaint little places to eat. We were moved across the street to the only room available which happened to be an enormous handicap room larger than... More

The resort is a very strong 4 star . I will happily return for all the usual reasons that everyone writes about. Kid friendly and service, and location. But I do have a question about the poolside umbrellas. Why dont they make more umbrellas available especially knowing that families who arrive at the pool at 10am or later will probably... More

We just spent three wonderful days at the Anchorage! The minute we pulled into the driveway, relaxation set in and we were in vacation mode! James at the gate is quite a character and adds much charm to the resort. Our room was lovely and very clean as was the whole resort. The grounds are beautiful and very maintained. All... More

Just got back from a 5 day stay with my sister. We stayed in the towers. The room was not large but it had two full sized beds that were very comfortable. The furnishings seemed fairly updated and clean though our carpet was quite stained and the sliding glass door was difficult to open and close. Shower pressure was good.... More

We stayed here the first weekend in June. Everything was perfect. The setting is gorgeous with a lawn overlooking the Marginal Way (easy access), ocean, and beach. There are plenty of chairs on the lawn and around the pool. It's walking distance to everything. A great vacation.

Just returned from a one-night stay at the Anchorage. This is my second time staying there. Quite a difference from April, 3 yrs. ago. The outdoor pool was under construction then and the outdoor dining was limited. So this trip, we got to enjoy all amenities that weren't available the last trip. We chose the Starboard building Beach lower level... More
