We have been going to Old Orchard for almost 40 years. Staying at the same location EVERY time. We felt that the attention to detail had slipped significantly, and thought we would try a new spot. We have looked at the Royal Anchor on our previous trips, but had never stayed there. So we booked a few nights in the... More

This was my first visit to Old Orchard Beach and I found the Royal Anchor through Trip Advisor. I found the staff friendly, accomodating and helpful. They let me store bicycles in their furnace room off the pool area, because I wanted them out of the elements. I decided to swim in the ocean and had not bought a bathing... More

In July, my mom, sister and I spent 7 nights at the Royal Anchor Resort in Orchard Beach, Maine. We had read reviews of the hotel and decided to give it a try. It ended up being a great decision! The three storey hotel is situated directly on the beach. You can see the beach from each balcony and what... More

When vacationing, we look for cleanliness and location. Royal Anchor Resort gave us both .It was right on the ocean, we had 4 adults in our group, so the room could have been a little bigger, but it had a nice patio, pool and the breakfast they offered was very satisfying and filling. I have no complaints and would stay... More

We have stayed at The Royal Anchor many, many times and headed back there next week. It's a home away from home, and it has everything needed. It's super clean, warm pool, great hospitality, a perfect breakfast and a wonderful beach. I've sent many people to the resort, all of whom have loved it. You can depend on the resort... More

This review is so not true - I have worked for the Bureau family for 8 years and find this very untrue!!!! Everyone works so hard to make this a great place to visit. The owners Mark and Claire work around the clock with all of us - all the rooms have been done over - the rooms all look... More

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
