“Good choice on the ocean”
Reviewed 13 April 2008

My h and I stayed here at the very beginning of the season.
Because it was so early, I was able to book a room at a
discounted rate. We did not have an ocean view but the
hotel itself is on the ocean. Since it was off season, the
pool was not open yet and it was extremely quiet. The
room we had was very clean and they provided a generous
continental breakfast. It was great being right on the ocean.
If you have never travelled here off season, I recommend it.
There is nothing to do except walk the beach. I walked
and hardly saw anyone, far different from peak season when
it is wall to wall people. The hotel at that time was not
fancy but clean and a beautiful location. The year was more
like 1994 since that is not available to pick for the purposes
of entering this.

  • Liked — Location, location. Right on the beach. You can walk out onto the beach.
  • Disliked — I'm not that fond of Old Orchard Beach, it's a bit tacky and I prefer other Maine locales.

After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor we selected The Royal Anchor for our first vacation in OOB. The reviews were 100% correct, the place was spotless and well-maintained. The pool was kept at 80 degrees and was cleaned diligently every morning before it opened at 9 am. The rooms were immaculate, and the maid service friendly and hard-working. The managers were polite and helpful. They suggested Ken's Seafood for dinner and it was perfect for our family with kids, 5 and 7. The food was delicious and the setting was casual.
Book a room with an ocean view. The beach is beautiful and the sound of the ocean lulls you to sleep. There is a lot to do in the area for families with kids, and even if you don't have kids. Funtown/Splashtown was a blast, and also very clean. We will return to OOB and the Royal Anchor.
