Stayed at the Anchorage July '05 and Aug '04. In '04 we stayed in the old section---pros: right next to pool, grass and beach and don't have to cross road. Cons: the rooms are clean but drab and the bathroom is 2-star size which is irritating when you spend that much. We (2 adults) were outside most of the time so it didn't matter.
This summer we took 2 teens and stayed across the street in one of their cottages. Absolutely fabulous! It's newer and has beautiful decor, 2 sinks in large lav area, 2 bdrms and a pull-out sofa. Also has 3 TV's and a great kitchenette with sparkling clean dishes, utensils, pans and dishwasher. It was cheaper than getting 2 rooms. We will definitely go back there!
The only reason my rating is a 4 out of 5 is because the price is disgustingly high. You're paying for the plot of land more than the hotel however once you park you car you can walk just about everywhere!
(Except for the night that you drive to The Steakhouse in Wells, a few miles north--- top notch steaks and worth the 1- hr. wait)
I don't recommend the chowder at the Cabana by the pool- it's about $5 a cup and bland. Better off with David's ($3+ a cup) or Oarweed's.
Hope this helps---Ogunquit is awesome!
