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

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

Wonderful place to stay; very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and a good location on the first floor for anyone with some some physical disabilities. Bathrooms are small, but manageable and the porch provides a second room in good weather. Watch out, we'll be back next Fall!

By chance, a friend and I discovered Royal Anchor Resort, and I am already planning for next years stay!! It is obvious, how much the owners and staff take pride in the resort! We were lucky to find this gem by chance, and to get a room with great ocean views, amazing sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are immaculately clean.... More
