This resort is fabulous. You can rest and relax in their tranquil settings. The grounds are beautiful. You can just take a seat in one of the chairs by the ocean and forget about everything. I can sit there all day and just watch the ocean waves. The place is clean and kept up beautifully. Won't stay anywhere else!

We spent two nights at this property and wished it were 7. From the minute of arrival until the morning of our departure, our stay would be rated 10+++. Breakfast each morning and dinner were excellent. Can't speak highly enough of the wait staff, all of which were helpful and ready to make certain our stay was memorable. The hotels... More

My friend and I visited for the 2nd time in Ogunquit and choose the Anchorage after checking it out last time. When I called they were totally booked for ocean view rooms. I asked the lady to find us something comparable and she told me she could give us a 3rd floor distant ocean view with a private balcony. I... More

Perfect location in Ogunquit...walking distance to town (all the great restaurants and cute shops and galleries)...and the most picturesque views of the ocean and beach below, right along Marginal Way. You can walk right onto Marginal Way, and head over to Perkins Cove (more good restaurants). The hotel itself is perfect for families, especially because of the large outdoor pool... More

Room was on second floor with an excellent view of the marginal way and the ocean. Very nice room. Short walk to downtown shops. East access to the marginal way. Staff was very nice. Have stayed here before and will continue to come back.

We needed a place for one night so we explored the web and made a few calls. This one had several options so we stopped in to see it. (We got burned by booking without viewing the night before). The lobby and surrounding area was beautiful. Desk help was super nice and helpful. We took a room in the building... More

This is my second time at this lovely resort and I loved it as much as the first time. We went the weekend after Labor Day, had wonderful weather, enjoyed many walks along the Marginal Way where we climbed on the rocks, enjoyed some beach time and watched the sunrise. The hotel was wonderful, rooms clean and super comfy beds.... More

This was a lovely hotel with great lobster rolls. There is an absolutely beautiful walk right there along the shore called the marginal way. This hotel is right off the water and steps from the cute little town. A perfect place for a fall getaway.

We spent extra money to have a room with a view. We had a "side view" which meant if you go outside and look, you have a view. We also had a "pool view", that means looking across the parking lot towards the pool. Went to the front desk to complain and the front desk lady was less than helpful.... More
