We came for a girls' weekend and stayed for just two nights. The staff were nice, the rooms were clean and we did have a nice beach/ocean view. Nothing to complain about but also nothing special. Loved the chairs on the property overlooking the beach. It was also walking distance to both Perkins Cove and the center of town. Overall,... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights in one of the cottages during a family vacation. The experience was memorable because of the location and proximity to the beach but the hotel wasn't exactly a "resort". However, the rooms were clean even though they were small and the service was great. The cottages are across the road from the main... More

It's always a pleasure to stay at the Anchorage. It has become our go-to spot in Maine. This was our second trip there. The first trip was two years ago, it seems that since then they have renovated some of the rooms. This time I have two quips: 1. on our departure day we were woken up by landscaping noises... More

Stayed here for two nights on our second trip to Ogunquit. The room was spotlessly clean and looked as if it recently been refurbished, so no complaints on that front. The key issue is that the hotel styles itself as a resort, when in fact it is fairly standard motel. The vast majority of rooms overlook the parking lot and... More

This place is awesome. Water front, relaxing, 3 hot tubs, open year-round. Got engaged here a few years ago. When I told the front desk that, they said "oh good"... No perks for being loyal which stunk, but oh well. We had a king sized bed with a fireplace in it.. Just great.

We had a first floor room with an ocean view and what a beautiful view it was. Simply sitting outside on the grounds was enjoyable. But there is so much to do within walking distance. The only time we really needed to drive was to go to the Ogunquit Playhouse which is a 5 minute drive.
