“Excellent value for the price”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

My wife and I (early 60s) have been going to Old Orchard Beach in September for years and The Royal Anchor has been our favorite for some time. The owners are wonderful, helpful people who truly care about their clientele and always make you feel welcome. They take good care of their property and the lovely pool, right on the beach, is always spotless and heated just right. The rooms are clean and the large beds very comfortable. We enjoy sitting on our private terrace where we can watch the ocean. It's also great to be able to fall asleep listening to the surf. We are happy that most rooms were refurbished over the last few years as our only complaint until then was that the rooms were starting to show some wear and tear. The prices are a bargain when you consider the ideal beachfront location, the quality of the accommodations and service, the great pool and the good breakfast included in the daily rates. We will keep going back as long as we can.

Room Tip: Refurbished rooms recommended. For more privacy and better views, choose 2nd or 3rd floor.

Our parents took us there many years ago. Now that they have "left" us, we just love to go there and recall memories of them while taking some relaxing time away from work and husbands !!!!!!!!!!!!! (Oh Oh ! did I really say that ?) September is a great time to go !

Room Tip: All rooms are great but of course ocean view and pool views are the best !

if you like body surfing decent size waves in fairly warm waters of the atlantic then this area is the place to be. Weather was pretty hot so the water was inviting and the waves became our best friends.Clean hotel with good breakfast right on a nice quiet piece of beach real estate made this holiday an enjoyable one. Great walking on the soft sands to either the funky pier or to gaze at the how the other half live in their regal manors. Bring your bicycles to cruise the avenues around the maine landscape and don't forget a trip to the famous Clam Bake seafood eatery where your palate with have a pleasurable time.

This was our first visit - wonderful location right on OOB. We came at the very end of the season, so it was not crowded. We stayed in one of their "upgrade" rooms, which has its own private terrace with lounge chairs overlooking the ocean. Beds were comfy, linens/pillows were nice. The bathroom is teeny but it worked out ok. The one thing I didn't check when booking was air conditioning - they did have ceiling fans, but no A/C. If we had come in the summer that would have been a deal-breaker for us, but it worked out for October. Their continental breakfast buffet was wonderful - fresh fruit; bagels, English muffins, and bread for toast with multiple toppings; boiled eggs; oatmeal; coffee, juices, and teas - I appreciated that the food was fresh (and not pre-packaged). Short drive to the pier or to other coastal locations. Would stay again.

My husband and I have always a really nice time at Royal Anchor Resort. Employees and owners ( Mark & Claire Bureau ) are really sympatic.
The rooms are clean, the deluxe breakfast is good. The pool is nice with warm temperature, the beach and the view are fantastic
We suggest you this nice and quiet motel to spend your vacations.

This is the Very Best place to stay in Old Orhard Beach !!!! The rooms are immaculate and comfy, every one has an ocean view as well as a pool side view. Terraces have great lounge chairs. Ten steps to the private immaculate beach. Owners and employees can't do enough for you. You are treated like royalty here. Plus great free breakfast. Been going here for years and it just gets better and better !!!!

Room Tip: No A/C so stay on upper floors so you can leave the slider open.
