My family and I stayed at the Anchorage for 4 nights in the end of June. The location is perfect- right on the marginal way and easy walk to the beach and town. The room was not huge but my family of 5 stayed comfortably in a two queen bed room (although one of my kids is just 2 so...

Nice hotel with spectacular views but not worth the money. Totally agree with review above about the no chairs being available to sit on because people put their things down for the day on them and never sit on them. Frustrating. Bar service and breakfast "to go" service very slow. Check in isn't until 4:00 which doesn't seem right. We...

Dear Dlson, We appreciate your feedback. We are happy we were able to accommodate you during your trip. We would also like to thank you for giving the Anchorage a try. We would need at least 500 pool chairs to accommodate all of our guests during the summer. It is just not physically possible to have that many chairs. We...

No doubt about it the location could not be better, the help is friendly and responsive to requests, the room was clean and comfortable, the shower was A1 and the bed was OK. On the downside it was difficult to find a parking spot, finding a lawn chair by the pool or on the lawn was also difficult, the closet...

We have been coming to the anchorage for about 13 years with a large family group. The location can't be beat, but the resort does a terrible job with allowing customers to save chairs all day that they never sit in. If you don't get up early to put your personal belongings on a chair by the pool or on...

After several hair-raising nights in Boston with no luggage (which finally arrived), it was great to relax in this beautiful location right on the sea, as it states in the name. We were lucky to get a sea-view ground floor room which was well appointed, very well maintained and cleaned to a high standard. A generous sized fridge was useful....

We decided to take a last minute trip to Maine and were able to find a room here (due to a cancellation). It is on the expensive side, but not crazy for the location. The "resort" is actually an upscale motel, ie cars parked outside your door, but surprisingly this turned out to be more of a convenience than a...
