“Lovely ocean view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

We wanted to get away for a winter weekend and decided to try the Anchorage By the Sea. The full oceanfront view room was very basic, could be found at any hotel, nothing special. I am sure that during the summer months it must be lovely to sit on the deck looking out at the ocean, of course we couldn't do that this time of the year as there were no outside seats available. With so many beautiful hotels in the area, I would not return.

Room Tip: Full ocean view a must!

I have been there 2 times once for a family vacation and once for a mini honeymoon. Both times it was exceptional! Lots to do within walking distance or a trolly ride. The views are fantastic.you are ride on the cliff walk . Would highly recommend this resort. The main property is more accomidating with better access to the pools and views!

We called at the last minute on Presidents Weekend and found a fireplaced room in the Lightship Building, yea! Overall it is a nice motel. The rooms are pretty much standard fare, a box with either a bit of a view on the waterside or parking lot view or fireplace on the land side buildings. This is a large complex that would probably be a bit too busy during the high season. There is a hot tub and the pool is small. Both way too busy off season and the chlorine is necessarily very high. We did not bother as we avoid very high traffic pools or tubs. Our BIG complaint is that they allow children in the hot tub. We thought Maine law does not allow anyone under the age of sixteen in commercial hot tubs.

Otherwise, these was acceptable, cookie cutter accommodations fairly priced. Not the romantic, couple type places we like, but okay to have a clean place to sleep at a very central location which earns it an extra star.

Yes, the location was wonderful and yes, the room was clean BUT we were left with a bad taste in our mouths by the inept customer service .....
Upon booking we were told our room would have a 2 person jacuzzi -- that jazucci turned out to be a simple bathtub with jets -- very disappointing -
Upon booking we were told breakfast was included and this was told to us again upon check-in --- this too was not true ---- again very disappointed with the misinformation .....
Maggie at the front desk did give us a 10% credit on the room after our complaints .....it was certainly a nice gesture but we'll stay elsewhere the next time - just not worth the aggravation ....

The Anchorage is just off the middle of town. A two minute walk to all the shops and restaurants. You can also walk to the beach from the hotel and have access to the Marginal Way. Both indoor and outdoor pools are wonderful.

Room Tip: You can stay in the building across the street from the main part of the hotel and the rooms are a l...

I love this hotel. It's in a great location, within walkin distance to the shops and Perkins Cove. We have stayed in all areas of the hotel, both on the main campus and across the street in the lighthouse building, where we actually had a fireplace in our room (loved it!). The pools are nice; kid friendly and drinks and food are reasonably priced. Very clean grounds and rooms!

Absolutely perfect location, right on the Marginal Way in Ogunquit. The best part is everywhere you would want to go is within walking distance or a trolley ride - no worries with driving and parking. Beaches, restaurants, shopping and entertainment is all there. Right on the grounds, there is an indoor pool, outdoor pool, and restaurant, not to mention the breathtaking ocean front and sprawling green lawn with adirondack chairs. Perfect family vacation.
