I did a lot of research before selecting this hotel and was not disappointed. Our room (175) on the starboard side overlooked the ocean and was worth the extra money. The beds were very comfortable and the room was a decent size, updated, and very clean. We had no complaints. Second floor rooms have the best views of the beach,... More

We got a great rate for a large king size room! Comfortable bedding, great location, dated decor but clean. Only thing I can complain about is the carpet in the hallways - it looks like people have spilled bleach on it and it is time to replace it PRONTO.

Of course the weather was extraordinary: 25 degrees celcius on the 1,2 and 3 october 2013; cloudless days, light winds.So our stay at the ANCHORAGE was delightfull. The grounds were tastefully dressed up in magnificent autumn artefacts; giant pumkins ,squash,corn stalks,chrysanthemums and many other flowers still in full bloom. The cleanlyness of the parking lot, the lawns and swimming areas... More

The location is fantastic, and the rooms are wonderful. The pool area chairs and the umbrellas on the lawn are snapped up first thing in the morning. My husband had to secure chairs and umbrellas by 7 am. Also the restaurant is just O.K. Except for these few things, the resort is great.

We were at the Anchorage for the weekend with two grandchildren and stayed in one of the cottages across the street from the main hotel. The cottage had 2 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms and a living room/kitchenette area, so it worked out perfectly. The space was immaculate and beds were very comfortable. They come equipped with a large flat screen tv in... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times but this was my first time staying in the Starboard section. We were in room 173, a 2nd floor room with breathtaking ocean front views. The room was recently remodeled and is very comfortable yet spacious. We had 2 queen beds that were quite comfortable. The hotel overlooks the marginal way and... More

It was our first visit to Ogunquit, it won't be our last. The rooms were nice and clean, but the location was fantastic! We parked our car and didn't get in it again till we had to drive home. The hotel is directly on the Marginal Way and it was a beautiful walk to Perkins Cove.

We have stayed in this area for many years and find Ogunquit the best place to park the car and walk everywhere. This is the first time at the Anchorage. We wanted to stay beach side for a change and this was wonderful. This place has a great location and is beautifully maintained. It is decorated for the fall season... More

We stayed here a few days ago. We didn't have a reservation. We just walked in and asked for a room. They have many different prices based on the location of your room. We got the least expensive room in the Tower across the street. It was nicer than I thought it would be. The beds were comfortable and the... More

the nicest view of the ocean in Ogunquit, either from your room or the deck chairs set up on the lawn next to the Marginal Way. beautiful grounds and swimming pool, indoor pool in case of bad weather, just steps from the Marginal Way, mid-way from Perkins Cove and the beach, so an excellent location.
