I have stayed at the Anchorage 3-4 times now and always enjoy it. The location is perfect. It's a very easy walk to town and the beach. The hotel is always immaculate. The room is relatively large with a great bathroom. I have always enjoyed my stay. The Anchorage is expensive but worth it. This was my first visit in...

From making your reservation to check and checkout the staff at the Anchorage are always on their game to make your stay stress free. The hotel has a great pool but is in walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches on earth.

We stay here every year and it never disappoints. It's clean, friendly and they have the best pools! An indoor pool, outdoor and a kiddie one with a fountain. Great for families. There's also 3 hot tubs for relaxing. The hotel, and several guest rooms, over look the ocean and is right on the marginal way (cliff walk along the...

My family and I have been staying at the Anchorage for many years. This is a family business, and you can tell by the helpfulness and hospitality exhibited by the staff.

The Anchorage By The Sea was a fantastic place. We went with 14 people and the staff were able to accommodate our request to eat two dinners together. Service couldn't have been better. Also, the pool, the hot tubs and the lounge chairs were great. The grounds were meticulous and the view fantastic! We definitely hope to return again.

For the amount of money and late check in time, it is not worth it. They should change the check in times since the entire time is under 24 hours if you plan on staying one night. You also have to wait a long time to even get someone to answer reservations.
