We stayed here for a quick overnight get away so I really didn't have time to evaluate the restaurant located on the property. The view we had in the starboard oceanfront site was just perfect. Right on the Marginal Way it was easy access to enjoy the cliff walk and from outside our 2nd floor room you could see all... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and consider it one of the best for the value and location. Usually stay three nights. Have been here in the peak season when it is much more crowded so this was more relaxing to be here in mid-May. Only problem is that the area around the pool and their... More

Wow! Had such a great nights sleep that I took a picture of the mattress tag! We were in the Atrium with an limited, but beautiful ocean view from our tiny balcony. We got a pack n play(we forgot our travel bassinet) for a $10 fee. The pool in the Atrium is a lap pool, but was great for our... More

Had the most amazing weekend! Met up with my sister and brother-in-law at The Anchorage - this was the first time any of us stayed. I checked in with an awesome agent named Dick. He knew the property inside and out - 2 heated pools both at 80 degrees and a hot tub heated to 102 degree - pool open... More

Location location location That is the beauty of staying at this motel/inn. Access to the Marginal Way and also walking distance to the Main Street area with shops movies etc The room was nothing special. It looked like a typical motel room with 2 queen beds. The fridge was in bathroom and I recommend getting a top floor since we... More

We've stayed here twice with friends and have had a wonderful time. We go off season because it's pricey. The view of the ocean is great. You can access the Marginal Way from a gate off the lawn. Walk to many of the shops and restaurants. Looking forward to coming back!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return in the future. The grounds are beautiful, the pools refreshing and the beds were surprisingly comfortable and cozy! The quaint downtown area and beach are accessible by a short walk. I would recommend driving to the beach if you have kids who want to bring toys to play with, otherwise... More

Everything about our stay was top notch. From the friendly people working the front desk and the staff keeping the rooms super clean to the comfy, cozy beds. There was some construction going on but it certainly didn't take away from our fabulous time. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel is close to Perkins Cove. Be sure to walk... More

I have wanted to visit this hotel for years, but the "peak season" prices are a little hard for me to commit to. This weekend, I decided to give it a shot during a spontaneous little day trip to Ogunquit with my two daughters, ages 11 and 13. The off-season price wasn't too bad, but still, at $170 for the...

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
