“Beautiful Place to Stay on the Ocean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

I stopped in here with my daughter for an early season stay. They have 3 large pools, 2 indoor and 1 outdoor. There were 2 spas, indoor and outdoor and a small pool for kids and a splash/play area for kids. They have an awesome deck and view area for sunbathing and viewing the ocean. The room itself was okay, nothing special; however, the bed was very comfortable. There was no in-room coffee maker or microwave which was disappointing. We were on the first level toward the ocean so we could see the ocean, but cars were in front of the seating area. I loved the poolside cafe. The restaurant across the street is great for breakfast dining by the ocean. We did have one incident where we waited until 9:00 pm to use the pool as it is stated adult swim only from 9 to 10 and there were about 7 kids running, yelling, swimming and splashing. I did go to the desk though and they did ask the kids to leave without an issue. I just wondered why they have that rule if they don't enforce it. Overall, it was an awesome stay and I would definitely stay here again maybe requesting a second floor ocean facing room.

The staff at the Anchorage Inn is very friendly and helpful; I think the results show in the care given the rooms. The rooms are decorated in seaside colors; pale greens, blues and white. Complete with a table, chairs, refrigerator, beds, bedstand and closet, they have everything for a beach stay, but the result is a fairly tight room. Nor are the rooms completely soundproof. But what is most appealing about the hotel is Long Sands Beach just across the street. We've only been there off season, but the delights of strolling the beach, and watching the surfers are impressive. Should you feel the need to swim a large indoor pool awaits. There is an outdoor pool as well, but I've never been there when it's warm enough to use that.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms allow you to sit outside with your morning coffee and peruse the ocean.

Very simple, basic inn. Stayed in late April so theoretically off season but was still fairly busy. There are 2 buildings, the main, front building that over looks the beach and then the building on the side/back which has beach view from the porch. Rooms are on the smaller size but well equipped. Friendly front desk staff. Can't beat the location or view.

It was my wife's birthday and we thought it would be nice to get away for a few days. We looked for a place that would be interesting and cost effective. My wife found an advertizement for the Anchorage Inn for their 3 day 2 night stay with 1 dinner on one of the nights. So for $114/night we went to York Beach. The room I chose was on the 3rd floor for the better view (there is no elevator so be careful) the view from the 1st is nil, the 2nd is a little better. The room was very clean, modern, freshly painted. The rooms had fire sprinklers as well as smoke and co2 alarms. The building is far from new but has been kept up.There are 2 pools inside and out heated The outside balcony had a table and chairs to sit and watch the water that is directly across the street. The wall are thin and conservations between rooms can be annoying. Our dinner was at the Sun n' surf restaurant it was excellent, any item we wanted was available to us, from salad to dessert. We had an excellent time and will return.

Room Tip: If you want the best view of the ocean and don't mind climbing 3 flights stairs ask for a room o...

I think the value is great and have always had clean rooms at The Anchorage. I am perplexed why the rooms don't have coffee makers. I have found even the cheapest hotels have coffee makers in them. On our last visit we stayed in the Atrium building and it was unfortunate that a very large group had camped out around the stairs of the pool. They were literally there from morning until night, even bringing crock pots out at meal time. This made it difficult for anyone else with small children needing the stairs to use the pool. Maybe a staff member could make a check on the pool occasionally and discourage people from sitting around the end of the pool for hours at a time since some people obviously don't have the courtesy to think of others.

I was looking at places to stay with my girlfriend for a nice weekend getaway. My family have been visiting York Beach since I was a child so I was well aware of the area. I ended up choosing the Anchorage Inn and couldn't have been more pleased. Check in was a breeze, we were offered a deal due to it being Valentines Day which included a free dinner at Surf and Turf (great food) and a bottle of champagne. The room was on the third floor and was really nice. Flat screen TV, mini fridge, great views! The king size bed was super comfy as well! All in all we had a great weekend.

We stayed at The Anchorage Inn over the long weekend January 18th - 20th. Due to sickness during the holiday season, we weren't able to visit family in Connecticut, so they traveled to Maine to meet us for a delayed holiday gathering. We were THRILLED with our accommodations at The Anchorage Inn !!!! Everyone at the Inn was helpful and pleasant to us, from the front desk to the housekeeping staff to the delightful cook in the breakfast cafe!! The rooms were immaculate and the beds were sooooooooo comfortable!!! Our kids enjoyed the pool and just being together. We were able to sit and visit and look at the gorgeous ocean views - AWESOME! There seemed to be several families enjoying the weekend and the winter weather didn't stop anyone from walking to the pool with snow boots and coats over bathing suits !!! I was concerned initially that the Inn might only be a great summer get-away, but I was WRONG!! This Inn is perfect for a get-away in winter too! Thank you Anchorage Inn - we will definitely return!!!

Room Tip: There are 2 pools at the Inn. If you stay in the front of the Inn, you'll have to walk from you...
