We had a room with a balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. It was very spacious for two people. There was a table and two chairs for activities or eating, nine drawers, a fridge, and a metal rack for hanging clothes. The bath has just enough room for a tub/shower, and the sink is outside. Massively obese people would...

Hello Traveler! I appreciate this review very much. This is without a doubt one of the best write-ups we have ever received. Although we are blessed with a beautiful location, it is our staff that makes this place so great. Your attention to detail and kind remarks have brought a smile to all the employees faces today.

Only stayed one night, but really enjoyed the location and the room was very clean and well-kept. Great access to the beach and a nice pool as an alternative. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Our room had a great view of the ocean and so convenient. Great experience!

Hello Karin12363 Thank you for this lovely review. You are correct in that the pool is a great alternative to the ocean. Our guests love spreading out in the grass area around the pool to take a break from the sand! Please come back and visit again! Mike Williams Manager

We enjoyed our stay on Old Orchard Beach and stayed at the Royal Anchor Resort which is more of a hotel/motel than a resort. The rooms were quite nice, clean and decorated nicely. The hotel overlooks their small pool. We were originally in the C building which had no view but the room was fine. They we transferred to an...

Thank you so much for your pleasant and detailed review of our resort! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and do hope to see you again.

Our stay at the Royal Anchor was so nice - and the beach is just spectacular! The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was nice and plentiful with good variety. The grounds and rooms were very clean and well-kept. We appreciated the recycling bins everywhere! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved our time here. The rooms were well kept, housekeeping staff was personable and fast, and the whole building and grounds was clean. We had an end unit that faced the ocean, with a great private balcony on the 2nd floor. There was no a.c., so we wouldn't have survived on the first floor, having to keep the slider...

My husband and I have been staying in OOB for 8 years now and this was our first time at the Royal Anchor Resort so we have much to compare it to and let me start by saying "Resort" is quite a stretch. The room door requires an old school key to gain entry and it does not lock behind...

this was our first visit to Royal Anchor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the private beach.....only steps away from the hotel. This place is kept very clean, only thing I'd change would be the pillows. But that won't keep me from coming back. Will definitely be back!

This was our 3rd time at the Royal Anchor and it didn't disappoint. On the beach with an excellent heated pool. Trolley stops out front every hour for a quick trip to the Boardwalk. Beach chair rentals are available for only $2.50/day. Great deal. Continental breakfast is also great and there are BBQ's available to cook a steak and eat...
