My Wife and I have been repeat quests at the Royal Anchor for years. The resort is clean, quiet and right on the beach. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful and it seems they are constantly updating the place. Very clean accommodations. There is public transportation available which takes you down to the Pier to enjoy the hustle... More

We had a nice stay. Our two children enjoyed the tennis, basketball and swimming. The rooms were nicely kept, and they offered a nice continental breakfast. The location is fabulous, right on the beach. It was lovely.

We had a room with a balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. It was very spacious for two people. There was a table and two chairs for activities or eating, nine drawers, a fridge, and a metal rack for hanging clothes. The bath has just enough room for a tub/shower, and the sink is outside. Massively obese people would... More

Only stayed one night, but really enjoyed the location and the room was very clean and well-kept. Great access to the beach and a nice pool as an alternative. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Our room had a great view of the ocean and so convenient. Great experience!

Hello Karin12363 Thank you for this lovely review. You are correct in that the pool is a great alternative to the ocean. Our guests love spreading out in the grass area around the pool to take a break from the sand! Please come back and visit again! Mike Williams Manager More

We enjoyed our stay on Old Orchard Beach and stayed at the Royal Anchor Resort which is more of a hotel/motel than a resort. The rooms were quite nice, clean and decorated nicely. The hotel overlooks their small pool. We were originally in the C building which had no view but the room was fine. They we transferred to an... More

Our stay at the Royal Anchor was so nice - and the beach is just spectacular! The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was nice and plentiful with good variety. The grounds and rooms were very clean and well-kept. We appreciated the recycling bins everywhere! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved our time here. The rooms were well kept, housekeeping staff was personable and fast, and the whole building and grounds was clean. We had an end unit that faced the ocean, with a great private balcony on the 2nd floor. There was no a.c., so we wouldn't have survived on the first floor, having to keep the slider... More

My husband and I have been staying in OOB for 8 years now and this was our first time at the Royal Anchor Resort so we have much to compare it to and let me start by saying "Resort" is quite a stretch. The room door requires an old school key to gain entry and it does not lock behind... More
