“Another Wonderful Stay In the Ocean Suites”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

This was our second June in a row staying in the Ocean Suites! We had two rooms for four nights starting on Sunday June 22nd.

The rooms were just as beautiful and clean as they were last year!

We had the private pool almost to ourselves since the guests with children seemed to go to the larger outdoor pool.

The weather was perfect.

Housekeeping staff couldn't be nicer! My Mom is a senior citizen and needed a step stool to get up into the bed and they happily provided us with one.

The woman that runs the happy hour is excellent! : )

We loved having breakfast each morning at the Sun and Surf across the street!

The front desk night shift did a good job of keeping the peace too. There was a loud selfish/ wedding party with a sense of entitlement that shocked me. ("do you know how many rooms we have here?" was overheard being said to night staff) It was after 130am and they opened and closed the door to the building at least 20 times running up and down the hall and into the outdoor hot tub making a ruckus. One would think they were children instead of adults!!!

We've been returning since the Atrium was built and hope to return many years to come!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with the Ocean Suites!

This is the second time we have stayed here. The staff was friendly, as usual and helpful as well but had no explanation as to why the wireless internet did not work, their response was " you're right, the internet should work." This is the second year in a row that this was a problem. For $228.00 a night the internet should work. The pool is nice and the location is perfect. The two hotels next door with comparable amenities offer free hot breakfast. Continental breakfast should be included. The mini fridge is handy. Overall a nice stay but not sure if we will be back .

Room Tip: The upper level rooms of the main building has a nice view of the ocean.

My family and I always stay at the Anchorage Inn. I've looked around to see if any other place would be better, I haven't found one yet! The staff is wonderful, the pools are well kept and clean. The ocean is right across the street along with a wonderful restaraunt. We would spend the day going between the beach and the pools. The trolley stops at the hotel and is a nice change of pace. My children have been coming here since they were 2 and 5, they are now 10 and 13 and don't want to try a new place, they love it here!!!

We just love being across the street from the beach. At night we would sit on the balcony and watch the waves roll in. Our room on the third floor was very nice with a refrigerator that is handy. It would have been even better if there was a small microwave too.

The office staff is very welcoming and accommodating.

It did rain but then we could go into the inside pool and not feel as if we missed a day of swimming.

There is a small snack bar/café in the main office area near the pools. The restaurant across the street was a disappointment. The fish is just okay but the hamburger was dry even though the inside was pink as requested. The staff is pleasant.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms are less expensive but you are sitting out in front of the parked cars. The s...

$750 for 3 nights we thought was worth paying because we had stayed here in the past and always been happy. Directly across from the beach is very convenient. Our first couple only getaway in quite some time. I'm sorry that it was a rainy wkend but there are established rules and guidelines!! Hotel DOES NOT followed based on weather!!! Adult swim time after the pool closes is supposed to be from 9-10 but only if you want to "complain" otherwise staff feels "like everyone has been cooped about so we said it was ok for the kids to go swimming at 9 unless you want to complain"!!!! You have to be kidding me. Room is average; nothing spectacular. Obviously someone who stayed in the room before us didn't like the rattling bathroom ceiling fan so there were tissues stuffed around it in the ceiling! Weeds growing in the shared porch. Love being able to have ocean view but no privacy. Will be looking at other options if we ever get chance for another wkend away alone!
We purposely timed our days for nothing!
Very disappointed.
For the cost we could have stayed at an exceptional Boston hotel or at Disney where we would have had outstanding service with staff that would have gone above and beyond.

The family decided to change the location of our ocean vacation this year and the Anchorage was chosen .It was highly recommended by friends. The staff is extremely friendly and all go above and beyond to help. The indoor and outdoor pools are great and entertain the kids in all kinds of weather. The restaurant is a bit pricey but the food is good and the outside dining with view is spectacular .
