Ten steps to the private immaculate beach. Owners and employees can't do enough for you. You are treated like royalty here. Plus great...

This past weekend I stayed at the Royal Anchor and was impressed. The staff is very friendly I dealt with a Mike and a Michael both were champions among men. I stayed in room 200, had a great view of the ocean, and the room was very clean. No complaints and I will be sure to be back next summer...

Returned to this property for a second time and found the staff as friendly as ever. Cleanliness was 100% Only negative is towel quality. The towel here are as thin and cheap as they get.

Love the design of the pool area. Never seen anything quite like it. Clean room. Very nice staff. Awesome beach. Pillows were very flat and only two on each bed. I used a chair cushion for TV watching. Television was extremely small but, it was a new flat screen and it had a built in DVD player in the side....

It was our first time in this area, and I found this motel online at Trip Advisor and stayed here with family for a couple of nights in August. In the downtown area there is Palace Playland. Online it says that it is New England's only beachfront amusement park. Giant arcade, beautiful carousel, Kiddieland. Gondola Ferris Wheel and Galaxi Coaster....

Stayed here with family. Appeared to be in renovations ongoing as the stairs was down to bare metal. The room was decent, even though a room facing the pool would have been better. They advertised chairs and umbrellas available, but they only had chairs and no umbrellas. Reserved parking so if you have more than 1 car per room, expect...

We had never been to Maine and found this hotel online. We got an oceanview room on the ground floor so we could walk right out of our room to the pool and the beach. It was too cold to swim at the end of June so next time we'll come later in the summer. The owner was very helpful...

This place is absolutely beautiful. It is so clean and comfortable. The people who run it are so friendly and all the staff is extremely helpful and nice.

This was our second stay here and I almost hate to review the Royal Anchor Resort in case too many people learn about this gem! Old Orchard Beach is a long, beautiful beach and much of it is crammed with hotels, motels, rentals, etc. The Royal Anchor is spacious and comfortable, with a heated pool and its own private stretch...

We have been guests at the Royal Anchor for a few years now and find the place clean and uncomplicated. This past weekend we were scheduled for our annual trip to OOB and, as luck would have it, my son came down with the Coxsackie Virus the night before we left. I had to cancel the reservation but was pleased...
