Just returned from a one-night stay at the Anchorage. This is my second time staying there. Quite a difference from April, 3 yrs. ago. The outdoor pool was under construction then and the outdoor dining was limited. So this trip, we got to enjoy all amenities that weren't available the last trip. We chose the Starboard building Beach lower level...

We have been to oguinquit about 10 times. We have stayed at other nice hotels in area. We loved our stay here. Location excellent close to center of town and right on beach. Rooms were clean and nice. Pools and hot tubs were enjoyable. One word of advise book early!

Just spent 27 wonderful hours in Ogunquit--with a one-night stay at the Anchorage. Other visits we were there for longer; only had one night this time. We were greeted with friendly chatter by the guard at the gatehouse and found the desk staff to be very friendly as well (much improved over previous years!). Although we were told we may...

My husband and I just spent 2 nights here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were in room 235 and had great views of the ocean. We arrived at 11am the day of check-in, so we didn't expect our rooms to be ready yet. We parked our car and opted to have lunch at Perkin Cove at Jackie's Too...

I always stay here when I visit Ogunquit. Rooms are not first-class, but they are comfortable and clean. Staff are courteous and the premises are well looked after. In my opinion that far outweighs an ordinary motel room. The food in the restaurant is very tasty and the prices reasonable. I was unsure of a choice of wine so the...

This hotel is by far the cleanest I have ever experienced in my many years of traveling! It is expensive, but the view from the balcony of the ocean is incredible and made our stay worth it. On the negative side, they give you nothing but your room for the money. There is coffee 24/7, but it would be gracious...
