Historical Traveler Reviews Anchorage Inn York Beach
Couldn't get out fast enough! 1 star still too many...
I was at the Anchorage about three weeks ago, and i couldnt leave fast enough. WHAT A FREAKING DIVE! The weight room was all rusted out, the rooms smelled like urine, and the restaurant was nasty. The food sucked and was ectremely pricy. I needed an extra pillow and the one that was left in the drawer had dust bunnies on it. The back building slelt like urine. The AC didnt work, and the unit was visibly old. The bathroom was TOOOOO small and the beds were slanted. and the carpet was ugly. There is clearly no sense of ambiance in this inn. The hotel needs to be torn down! the owners should be ashamed of themselves!
I WILL NEVER GO BACK EVER AGAIN.
mostly because of the ants in the room and the bitter coffee that i had to pay 1.00 for.....
Looks Good in the Brochure, But the Reality is...
We stayed at The Anchorage Inn on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, which was a nice surprise from our usual summer jaunt to Southern Maine.
Needless to say, despite the low season, we still paid top dollar for our room. The redeeming quality was that it had a great, big jacuzzi tub in a room that overlooked the ocean---a bit cold getting out (because you're next to your room's door), but nice nonetheless.
The room's decor is dated. If they charged less, I would rate this higher, but because of the cost (and the influx of people to Southern Maine, especially since Money named it one of its top places to vacation in the summer), I can't justify five gold stars.
The location is good. So, if you want to pay more for a mediocre room near the beach, stay at The Anchorage Inn.
Old and pricey
My husband and I stayed feb.13-15. The room was small and very old. The cigarette smoke that came from the first floor made me crazy. I canceled a trip we had booked for April.
Great winter getaway
We just got back from weekend at the Anchorage. What a great place to take the kids during the winter. We spent most of the day in the lap pool and even braved the walk across the street to the beach. The atrium was perfect on the first floor, with the pool right next to our room. This was our 3rd year going!
We have been going to York Beach for 60 years and the Anchorage has been around for many of those 60 years. The waterfront building is old and falling apart. It smells bad, the rooms are small and the floor is crooked making the bed tilt either up or down whichever way the headboard faces.
The newer ATRIUM building is nicer but the smell of the chlorine from the lap pool makes your eyes water and is quite offensive whenever you leave your room..there is no ventilation.
The prices are much too high considering the condition of the rooms.
The noise level is terrible and we will not vacation there again.
The management tries but it is a lost cause.
My fiance and I stayed at the anchorage for our only week off in the summer. I was very disappointed with my stay there. The rooms are very small. Our room was next to the stairs so we heard footsteps all night and there was also a large table and chairs outside our room that was occupied by loud guests until 3:00 AM. The bathroom was tiny. The third floor bathroom leaked and dripped into our bathroom. The pool and hot tub was occupied with children all the time. The maid was still cleaning our room when we arried back form shopping at 2:30 PM. I will not be returning to this hotel.
Needs new help
We stayed at the Anchorage in June. We needed a cot in our room and where promised one right away. Several hours later and after a second call reminder the cot finally arrived with a bad attitude. We where still charge the extra $20.00 for the cot even after all the problems.
We also are very disappointed about the cost and not even offered free coffee or continental breakfast. The only possitive things are the great veiw, two pools (in and outdoors) although the outdoor pool wasn't opened for the season yet and not having to worry about meter parking for the beach.
Our family stayed at the anchorage in 2002. found it to be pricey, noisy and small rooms.
It was terrible.
My husband and I stayed there one summer and it was terrible. We had a second floor room and right before bed we smelled and saw cigarette smoke coming from the floor. We had to stuff towels all along the baseboards to stop the smoke from coming up. When we complained they told us the first floor is a smoking floor so they weren't surprised it was coming through and didn't even appoligize for it. I will never stay there again.
The Anchorage Inn is a wonderful place to stay. Excellent view of the ocean, the rooms are clean and spacious. The restaurant cross the street is great, on the ocean. I extreamly enjoyed my stay, I have no complaints!

One of the most notable features of the state of Maine is it's coastline. From the sandy shores of it's southern beaches, to the countless inlets throughout it's mid coast, Maine offers it's guests countless opportunities to experience the shore. In choosing a destination to travel to and review, I wanted to find a spot that I could spend a day in. A spot that showcased as many aspects of Maine tourism as possible. In my search for the right destination, ...
... friendly beach destination. I had already eaten breakfast and the town’s center was showing full summer holiday weekend congestion, but the Ogunquit Museum of American Art a short distance south of the town center has several attractive galleries and beautiful grounds with sculptures displayed through the gardens. The museum has a no photography policy, but backs out to the town’s harbor for some last views of coves on the Maine ...
... it was raining and didn’t look like it was letting up anytime soon as we were getting Chicago’s rain (thanks!).
So we changed our plans and headed to York Beach, Maine. It was still cloudy and a bit rainy, but not nearly as bad as Cape Cod would have been. It reminded me of a northeast Lake Geneva. Very nice and clean, nestled right up to the ocean. The sand is very fine but dark in color-medium brown with specks of black. Not quite as fine ...
