Overall, I was very happy with our choice of the Royal Anchor. We have never been to OOB and I wanted a place that was right on the ocean because I have 2 small children, and I wanted the convenience of being able to walk to the beach. We checked into the Royal Anchor on Monday, August 25th for 2... More

I do not agree with any of the reviews! The rooms are so tight and tiny they are something out of the motel scene of the 50's. Are folks not getting out enough to see the beautiful luxury hotels? We stayed there, not by choice; friends made a reservation for a meeting spot accommodating 6 of us. We could not... More

We have been staying at the Royal Anchor for several years and wouldn't stay any where else. The staff are very friendly and helpful the room is always very clean and the breakfast is plentiful. I asked for an extra parking spot and they were very helpful in assigning us one for our guests. It is without any doubt the... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the Royal Anchor. This is a family-run hotel, very clean and comfortable. The spot is ideal, being right on the beach but far enough from the centre of Old Orchard to allow one to drift off to sleep to the sound of the surf and nothing else. The heated pool is a plus for those... More

We very much enjoyed the Royal Anchor. You get a lot for your money. It has everything: a great continental breakfast, wonderful ocean views with private balconies, a heated outdoor pool, an oceanside patio. It is right on the ocean and is immaculately kept. It is close to the downtown attractions without being right on top of them. We would... More

This was my first time visiting OOB and I can't say enought about the Royal Anchor. From the rooms, the view and the people who work there it's all top notch. I will be returning to the Royal Anchor again next time I visit Maine. There is no reason to seek out any other place this has it all.

This outstanding hotel is right on the beach - you don't have far to walk to the water! We have stayed here several times with our grandchildren and the rooms are clean, bright, and welcoming. The ownership of this hotel is on the second generation and it just gets better and better with every passing year. There's also a heated... More

It's located right on the beach, the Pier is about thirty minutes far by walk. Our room was nice and well equipped with a/c, heater, fridge and flat screen... More

I need to write this because I have worked at the hotel for the Bureau family for 6 years and this review that was posted by les m is so not true!!! I was on the desk when this couple stayed with us. There was a family reunion (not the owners reunion) - that took place over two days. Not... More
