4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Loved the location and the staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The only Con I could come up with is that they do not have a/c in the rooms. However the ocean breeze was nice. I highly recommend this resort to everyone. Cant wait to go back.

We stay here every year and absolutely love it!! It's perfect with the beach and the pool. We walk to town it's a mile away. The help is so great here and look forward to seeing them every year... The rooms are a good size. They have a refrigerator in the room and a Continental breakfast.

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.

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.
