I stayed for the second time at Anchorage by the Sea the end of August 2012 with my family. The last time I was there was 5 years ago and sadly the room I stayed in back then, which needed updating at that time, did not change. The bathroom was new the last time and still looked good but the bedspreads were so old that I got my sleeping bag out of the car and used that. The lamps and furniture were out of the 70's and the room smelled musty. On a positive note, the hotel seemed to have upgraded the outdoor pool, replaced some of the pool furniture and added many more lounge chairs on the beautiful lawn overlooking the ocean. The location is very convenient to town and a beautiful cove. At night towels were not available by the pools. I found out after bringing my own towel the second night that they keep them at the front desk. I am not sure why. The staff was pleasant at the front desk. I did not order any food so I can't comment on that. I made my complaints about the room known in the survey I received and even asked if the rooms they have available across the street were newer so that I might request those on a future visit. Nobody got back to me in response to my survey.
