“Always an amazing time...”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

My husband and I have been here many times in the past 6 years. The staff is always pleasant, rooms are very clean. The grounds are beautifully maintained; there is always someone sweeping or pruning or raking or planting. The only thing I didn't really like is that children are allowed in both hot tubs. I feel it would be a good idea for one of them, preferably the larger one, to be designated for 16 years old and above....Other than that you cannot beat the view or the location. If you don't want to pay top notch prices to stay at the main inn, the Towers across the street are also very nice and a little less expensive. We love to go off season when the prices drop. We bundle up and sit on the lawn chairs and enjoy the beach view.

Room Tip: No need to pay extra for "Ocean View" rooms. It is a very short walk to the chairs that s...

I have been going to the Anchorage for over twelve years and always have the best time and service. Everyone there is great and I would not want to stay anywhere else. It is located in a great spot, not too far from Perkins cove and not too far from the beach and the middle of town. It is a great family hotel. With there being an indoor and outdoor pool, and an adult and children hot tubs it is great for all ages. The cafe by the pool is also very great, good place to go for a quick lunch if you aren't looking to leave the pool to do so. The view of the ocean is amazing and the marginal way is a great way to walk to Perkins Cove with having a seaside view.

We love this hotel and all its amenities. We had a very comfortable room overlooking the water and front lawn and gardens. It was wonderful to sit in a chair on the front lawn with wine in hand and watch the world go by. A major treat is the wonderful walk along the water to the cove which is about a 1/2 half mile. The cove has wonderful shops, ice cream, and watch the fishermen bring in fresh lobsters. We had a two day package with a great dinner and two breakfasts. It's a must stay in the area.

Room Tip: Go in the spring or fall to avoid the tourist season. The grounds and gardens are wonderful during...

My husband and I have been going to Ogunquit for years and this is the first time we stayed at the Anchorage. Our stay was wonderful! We chose a package deal they were offering and it was truly worth it. The staff was great - from the friendly front desk staff to the lovely young lady who served us breakfast each morning. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and to our surprise there was champagne left in our room along with a nice card. The grounds are beautiful and the ocean view is the icing on the cake. Definitely stay at the Anchorage, you won't be disappointed!

We frequently visit Ogunquit, Maine and have stayed at the Anchorage many times. The biggest feature is the location of this hotel - walking distance to town, Marginal Way and the beach. The grounds are beautiful and there is an indoor and outdoor pool with a Jacuzzi. The rooms are refurbished and nice but the amenities are lacking. There is no coffee pot, the towels are thin and a makeup mirror would be nice.
We stay in the oceanfront rooms which is there premier rooms. On our last visit this April, the carpet had a big stain and there were stains on the throw on the bed. I informed Management but there was no real action taken other than removing the throws.

The Anchorage By The Sea is a wonderful place to stay. We have been going for years but haven't been in a few years. They have completely updated their decor. Their off season packages are well worth it. For $320 we got a 2 night stay, Sunday brunch at Jonathan's restaurant, and dinner at our choice of 4 restaurants. We chose The Old Village Inn. Our meal came to almost $100 and we only had to leave a tip because it was included in our package. All staff were very kind. The Anchorage by the Sea is located right on the Marginal Way so you are right on the ocean. I strongly recommend the Anchorage by the Sea.

Perfect location on the Marginal Way and overlooking the ocean. Beautifully updated rooms, complete with individual reading lights over the beds. Beautiful grounds, pools and jacuzzi's and excellent food at reasonable prices. We've been coming to Ogunquit since the late 60's, but this is now our favorite place to stay in the future. Everything is quality.

Room Tip: Room 239 is the end unit at lawn level facing the water. Walk off the patio onto the Marginal Way or...
