We stayed at the Royal Anchor because of the tripadvisor reviews and the hotel lived up to expectations. We stayed for two days with our three children (under 10).The hotels on Old Orchard beach directly are crammed together with not much parking etc. The Royal Anchor is a refreshing change from that. We were assigned our own parking spot and the property was open and spacious. Our rooms were very clean, the property was immaculate (the cleanest freshest smelling lobby I have ever been in for some time!), and they even put a cot in the room for our 4 year old at no extra cost. The breakfast was excellent, and we ate beside the pool everyday. There is lots to do in Old Orchard beach and I would recommend funtown/splashtown USA. Plus, on a rainy day you can drive 30 min and go to freeport for some shopping. We are planning to return next year. One negative was the price, I know we went during high season but compared to the other hotels we stayed during our 2 week roadtrip (comparing amenities) I felt the Royal Anchor was overpriced. However, I would return again another year simply because of the spaciousness of the rooms, the property and the area of the beach it is located on. Thank-you tripadvisor members for an accurate description of this hotel!
