Stayed three nights here with our family in 2 rooms in the Towers. Beds were comfy, room was clean, and the location was terrific for heading down the Marginal Way or walking into the middle of the village. Pool was very crowded, but that is to be expected during the middle of summer break. Had lunch and drinks in the... More

I know going to Ogunquit that there are many family run places which are charming...this is family run, but NOT charming. First of all, they put profits first...not the guest. For example, when I first got into my room the toilet roll in the bathroom was already 90% used...this was consistent with many other members of my family who were... More

I went with a few friends this past weekend to The Anchorage and overall it was really wonderful! We stayed in the towers because it was a cheaper option. I'm not complaining because we booked the room fully knowing that there were double beds, but I always wonder why in the world hotels have double beds instead of queens? There... More

We've stayed at the Anchorage several times over the years; if anything, it has gotten better. The staff are pleasant, professional, and very helpful. The accommodations are immaculately clean, and the new restaurant is wonderful. Even the breakfast coffee is excellent. And of course, the Anchorage is located off the Marginal Way, so even in summer there's a breeze off... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Condos that are a little walk from the main property. It was perfect for us with our 2 kids. The accomodations were fantastic - very clean and well-maintained. We even had a little deck outside and a grassy area for the kids to play. The pools (indoor and outdoor) were wonderful. I can't... More

Hello, Forgive me for starting this review in this way but my family has visited Ogunquit many times and we LOVE it. We were SO EXCITED to spend our vacation this year at Anchorage by the Sea. We have walked past it so many times and it's pretty lovely. When my husband first inquired about the room/beds since we have... More

After not being at the Anchorage for a couple of years, we decided to try it again. Some things were great, some were not so great. The woman I spoke to over the phone to make our reservation was super duper sweet. She sounded like an older woman. She was friendly, and helpful and just nice. Much better than our... More

A beautiful location and it was just perfect sitting on the lawn looking at the sea. You could sit for hours just relaxing and watching the view. Impossible to get a lounger by the pool in the middle of the day and we found out why when we checked out! Got up at 7.30 to see guests putting towels on... More

We have been coming for years. Love the new resteraunt. Great food. The service could be better. Jen is the one person who makes dining at your place amazing. Her service is so welcoming. No one compares to her. Last few times haven't seen her. Miss her fantastic personality and accommodating service

The location of this hotel is perfect in every way possible. Marginal way, short walk to the beach, short walk to town and Perkins Cove. The lawn chairs offer the best view. My only complaint is people put towels on the chairs on the lawn and pool area and never sit on them for hours.
