Stayed here for a girls' weekend. It's a beautiful location, right on the Marginal Way. Convenient to downtown & shopping. Friendly employees. The only drawback was that the indoor pool wasn't as warm as we were hoping for but the outdoor hot-tub was GLORIOUS. I would also recommend an upper floor room since the people walking above got a little...

This hotel was moderately priced, clean , attractive and comfortable . It also has a great view from the front lawn, friendly and effective staff and convent parking near your hotel room door. t is not the fanciest place in the world, but it is quite comfortable, and I would stay there again, if I were in Ogunquit.

Just a late fall get away. This location is fantastic any time of year - if you like the ocean. Right on the 'Marginal Way' (a fantastic, well maintained, paved walking trail along the edge of the shore). Although right on the ocean (up on a rocky bluff) it is not a 'beach' resort. For that you have to drive...

Stayed at this facility several times. Many reviews are true: Great location, great ocean views (for $$$$$), super nice employees, well kept pools & restaurant, but beware of poor Management and Punishing Polices. Cancellation Policy is ridiculous, and if you have an emergency at home, Management REFUSES to refund unused nights! "Dishrag towels" are the least of their issues!

I only stayed 1 night at Anchorage by the Sea, but would have loved to have extended the stay. The room was very clean and well appointed. The restaurant was very nice for breakfast. The property in general is charming -- lots of adirondack chairs. I was there in October, so it was brisk. But I think this would be...

Just back from a weekend at The Anchorage by the Sea. Don't think there is a place in Ogunquit with a more spectular view of the ocean. Rooms were nicely appointed. The hotel is conveniently located between Perkins Cove and "downtown." Friendly staff. The restaurant was a new addition since my last visit. Had lunch and breakfast there. Food was...

The Anchorage offers comfortable rooms that would be better with a luggage rack and more coat hangers. We improvised and made it just fine. There is a nice bar and dining room as well as a nice view of the beach. We didn't use the pool because of the weather but it would be great in summer. The lobby is...

Not that you would want to just stay in one spot but here you can. There is a restaurant on premise with full bar serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bar service around the pool is a nice amenity. Beautiful view of the ocean. Our overall rating of this hotel is very good.
