The Anchorage By the Sea
Ranked #12 of 36 Hotels in Ogunquit
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Came here end of April for 3 days. The setting of this hotel is spectacular. The view of the ocean from the property is beautiful. The room was adequate and very clean. Once we parked our car we didn't move it for the 3 days-everything is in walking distance. Outdoor pool wasn't open yet but the jacuzzis were. Lots of lounge chairs on the lawn facing the ocean. Definitely will go back to this classy well run hotel.

Came here off season. Very nice property, lovely rooms, friendly staff. Modern, clean. The view is spectacular. Decent but small free continental breakfast in the mornings.

We have stayed at the Anchorage by the Sea on multiple trips to Ogunquit. The view from the expansive lawn along marginal way cannot be beat. Lovely pool area with jacuzzis on site. Fun tropical drinks at the bar. Quick walk to the main beach and right on the marginal way. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms adequate. We did not enjoy our dinner at the restaurant, found it very salty. Love the grounds and gardens. Never had any issues with cleanliness or poor service. Downsides: jacuzzis can be crowded. Shared balconies on the main buildings.

This hotel is locayed right on the Marginal way. The views are outstanding. The Marginal area is in front of the property and takes you directly to Pigeon Cove. Down town Qgunquit is an easy walk.

Room Tip: views are better toward the ocean side and on the second floor.

Well it is that time of year that we all get the feel for the beach. This past week we decided to just to get away in the record breaking 85 degree temperatures. My wife wanted the Beachmere and I wanted the Anchorage by the Sea.The hot tubs at the Anchorage won out. The weather was great. The staff was very polite.We got early arrival and that made the day more pleasant. We brought our own lunch knowing we wanted to spend more time on the beach than eating.I would recommend to the Anchorage that they need to put microwave ovens in the rooms. They are also improving the outdoor area with a new pool and hot tub.When they are done it will look great.Best part of the trip at this time of year, there were no kids! The Anchorage was worth the stay.Ogunquit at any time of year is worth the stay!

Room Tip: Ask for the front rooms over looking Marginal Way.

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!
