Our stay at the Royal Anchor was so nice - and the beach is just spectacular! The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was nice and plentiful with good variety. The grounds and rooms were very clean and well-kept. We appreciated the recycling bins everywhere! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved our time here. The rooms were well kept, housekeeping staff was personable and fast, and the whole building and grounds was clean. We had an end unit that faced the ocean, with a great private balcony on the 2nd floor. There was no a.c., so we wouldn't have survived on the first floor, having to keep the slider... More

My husband, my mom (who is 90 years old) and I stayed there for a few days this year and last year, and had a wonderful time. The motel is quiet, very clean,and is right on the beach. You can hear the sound of the waves from your bed! The staff is very friendly, and breakfast is included in the... More

My husband and I have been staying in OOB for 8 years now and this was our first time at the Royal Anchor Resort so we have much to compare it to and let me start by saying "Resort" is quite a stretch. The room door requires an old school key to gain entry and it does not lock behind... More

this was our first visit to Royal Anchor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the private beach.....only steps away from the hotel. This place is kept very clean, only thing I'd change would be the pillows. But that won't keep me from coming back. Will definitely be back!

This was our 3rd time at the Royal Anchor and it didn't disappoint. On the beach with an excellent heated pool. Trolley stops out front every hour for a quick trip to the Boardwalk. Beach chair rentals are available for only $2.50/day. Great deal. Continental breakfast is also great and there are BBQ's available to cook a steak and eat... More

We had a family gathering at the Royal Anchor last weekend, utilizing three rooms. The property was very clean and the rooms were squeaky-clean, smoke-free, well appointed and located on a wonderful long beach - just minutes from all Old Orchard Beach attractions. The staff is very accommodating and rendered good advice on local attractions, restaurants and driving directions. The... More

You found it !!! From the moment you arrive,welcomed like family until the time you leave the service is exceptional. Clean, smoke free spacious rooms, maintained by wondeful staff, with an ocean breeze that cools during the day, waves that lull you to sleep at night. Start your day with their breakfast, then either walk mere steps to the clean... More
