Biggest issue was reserving a lounge chair or umbrella! I was up by 7:30 am to put towels on a lounge chair for the day. I had my 2 teenagers with me, one very fair and needed shade for the day. I was lucky on day 2 and we had an umbrella and a nIce day, but I witnessed lots... More

This was our first time back to Anchorage by the Sea in a couple of years. Prior to that, we had been going there every summer for years. And wow, how much things can change in two years! Apparently in the last couple of years, hotel management unfortunately decided to take the resort in a different direction. Sadly, at least... More

We stayed here for six nights. The hotel is no doubt located in a prime spot in the middle of everything. You have many shops and restaurants in close walking distance. The view and the back lawn are beautiful. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The grounds are well maintained. My issues are with two main qualities of... More

Been here several times before with no complaints. This time...horrible with no customer service. Our room, 254 in the towers, is located over the noisiest garage door. Our first morning it started at 7am. Sounded like the building was moving. Woke us all up and no chance to get back to sleep because it kept going up and down on... More

We spent three nights here, mid-week and had a lovely stay. We were in a first floor room close to to the entrance to the resort. The room was comfortable and very clean. Beds and linens were great, and we enjoyed having the larger than dorm-sized refrigerator in the room. Though I do hope they upgrade to Kuerig Coffeemakers in... More

Had a great time. Rooms were great. Didn't hear any noise, easy walk into town. Went to the piano bar and sang Karaoke at Maxwell's. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice. I've stayed at several places in Ogunquit and I'd stay here again, it was one of my favorites!

I took my boyfriend to Ogunquit for his first time and we stayed at The Anchorage. The stay we had was amazing! Very friendly staff, clean rooms, pool and hot tubs were immaculate, and the view was something out of a painting. You can walk anywhere in town including the beach and Marginal Way to Perkins Cove. We will 100%... More

Perfect location! Right by Marginal Way. Walk to shops and restaurants in either Ogunquit or Perkins Cove. Great views from Starboard Building #168. Quiet room. Comfortable beds and pillows. There are always lots of chairs on the lawn to enjoy the vistas; and there are two chairs with a side table outside each room.
