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...

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.
