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

I dont usually like writing reviews but after checking trip advisor frequently I was sad to see this hotel drop in its rating. Our family has been going to the Royal Anchor every year for the past 8 years. It is a must for my kids to be here every summer! The hotel staff is kind, friendly and overall we... More

If your plans, when you come to the Royal Anchor, are to get obnoxiously drunk, starting jumping in the pool after it has closed, wake up the other guests at midnight and have them call the police, have the owner have to come down and babysit the hotel for two nights straight until 2:00 a.m. to make sure no other...
