“Great Mid-Winter getaway”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Beautiful views from the rooms - waves and beach, what could be more restful? The hotel is very clean and was very quiet. Rooms must have been re-done - all fresh and new, great beds, no musty beach smell at all - heat worked very well in winter.

Room Tip: second floor gets your view above the cars in the parking lot…

We decided to spend a few days this winter at the ocean. One of a few motels open at Ogunquit Maine was the Anchorage by the Sea. We were located at the end of the building which gave us a view of the ocean. The rates were very reasonable and the room was very clean. The section we were in had been remodeled last year and the color scheme and décor were tranquil and soothing. The walls in the rooms were thick enough that no noise came through from the next door's TV. Even though this was in the slow season there were still some of the amenities available. The hot tub was located outside near the indoor pool building but completely accessible. The hot tub was very clean and enjoyable during the snow fall. The small continental breakfast was fine and the staff was very accommodating. Having 24/7 access to Wi-Fi was great. We will definitely make a return trip.

We stayed at The Anchorage (2 couples) this past weekend there was a Mardi Gras celebration going on in Ogunquit, which was nice! The rooms we had were very nice and very clean which is important. The people at the front desk were very helpful. We were able to walk to town for something to eat, and drinks without driving. Walked the beach, Marginal Way was closed, covered in snow! All in all a nice getaway, nice shops and restaurants, a lot is closed up, but some still open, which is nice because it is quiet and uncrowded. Still very pretty, even in the dead of winter!

We had a wonderful time at The Anchorage by the Sea. Everything was perfect!! The rooms are new and gorgeous with a beautiful ocean view. The pool, jacuzzi and all other areas are very clean and everyone is corteous and helpful. You will not be sorry if you book a vacation here. We were there in February and it was even gorgeous while snowing. In the summer, it's even more spectacular especially on the 4th of July. You can sit on the lawn and watch the fireworks right across the way.

Room Tip: There is a map on their website that you can refer to. Also, you can call them and they are very he...

We just completed a two-night stay at the Anchorage By The Sea. We come back every year during the off-season and are never disappointed. The entire staff is helpful and courteous. The rooms are immaculate. The location is terrific! Walking the Marginal Way (we couldn't this time due to the snow) and strolling along nearby Moody Beach at low tide(which we were able to do!) is always on our list of things to do. Great restaurants within walking distance and more within a short drive. When offered, the package plan is a great deal! Wonderful dinner at Clay Hill Farm Restaurant. Had a great lunch at Jackie's Too Restaurant in Perkins Cove on the water! Fantastic views! We would highly recommend the Anchorage By The Sea!

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms have a terrific view. Second floor is better, if available, view-wise and noise-wi...
