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...

I stayed there as a kid and was very excited to share this experience with my children and had full intentions of returning each year for our anniversary.. However, the management was so... More

This is by far the nicest hotel in Old Orchard: ridiculously clean, amazing views of the ocean, big pool, perfectly located. Having stayed in numerous places in and around the area, the Royal Anchor is by far the best.

The review "Stayed at least one night every year for 34 years," is sadly an attack piece. In the Royal Anchor's 47 years of existence, the family owned resort has acquired a tremendous repeat business. No guest fits the description in our memories or computer databases as it pertains to the person(s) who wrote the review. We know without a... More

The blue and white building is very charming and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are large, all have an ocean and pool view and have comfy beds, a keurig and a good sized mini fridge. The bathrooms are a bit tight but everything is clean and works well. The breakfast is basic, mostly carbs and a... More
