“Amazing”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

This was our first year staying here, as for the past 23 years we stayed somewhere else and thought we should try somewhere new. My husband and our two great friends all stayed together.

We were amazed at how clean and friendly the place was. When we checked in we were surprised to have the lady at the desk if she could help us carry our things to our room. About 20 minutes later she came to make sure all was okay.

The continental breakfast was unbelievable. More than just a continental breakfast. Excellent!!!!

We are going back next year and many years to come. I really can not tell you what a great place this was. Thank you all the staff for making out vacation enjoyable.

We enjoyed our stay very much and we will be back next July to attend a family wedding
at Dunegrass.
We thought the contintental breakfast was very good and staff was very friendly.
It was the best location on the beach.

We like Royal Anchor and have stayed there many times but wish they would get with the times and put AC in those rooms. I know at night it usually is fine but it is 2010 and what hotel does not have AC today. All in all I like this hotel and it is in the best location. Like the breakfast idea and pool is very nice, tennis courts..Rooms are not big like the ad says but still ok and clean. All in all nice place just wish they would update that AC issue..

Everything was perfect. The beach is very nice and clean. Not crowded at all. Far enough from the activities of the pier to have a quiet place but close enough to walk to get the fantastic french fries of Old Orchard Beach. Would not recommend this hotel for teenagers since it's very quiet but I would definitely recommend it for adults and young kids or adults only.

2 long chairs on the balcony... wow. Pool was nice and clean.

Only thing : no air conditioning but the weather was over 33 Celcius degrees all the time and, at night, the room was comfortable anyway (but not during day time... too hot).

Will definitely go back.

I was very impressed with how clean the place was, how friendly the staff was, and their continental breakfast was great. It was very filling and had a great variety. I am now going to be going to the Royal Anchor when I head down to Old Orchard Beach.

We stayed here for 5 nights - 3 generations of girls for a girls weekend - Grandma, me and my two daughters aged 6 and 4. The location was great, right on the beach with beautiful views from every room. Nice continental breakfast but very basic with pre-wrapped muffins and danishes. A nice touch but could have done without. Breakfast room was always crowded and we could never find a place to sit. Pool was always clean (watched him clean it every moring!) and was a perfect temperature for the kids.

But the reasons I wouldn't stay here again are due to the rooms - no air conditioning, small and very outdated. The window in our bathroom didn't close properly and I ended up giving the kids their shower's outside with the shower by the Ocean, simply because there wasn't enough water pressure to wash their hair (or they needed new shower heads). The key to the room (yes, KEY) didn't work and we had to get the front office to open our door on several occassions as the door knob was very wiggly and wouldn't turn. All this and they charged us an extra $15/night per child and an extra $2/night for a microwave.

There are other hotels in the area that offer beach front properties with heated pool and don't charge you extra for children and come equiped with a small kitchenette or microwave.

What a delightful experience -- the hotel is right on the beach with a freshwater pool, plenty of parking, continental breakfast to start the day and a great value. The rooms are spacious and very clean. I can understand why some people reserve from one year to the next!
