My family just came back from three nights at the Anchorage and enjoyed our stay. The resort grounds are spotless and is located right on Marginal Way, which we walked multiple times a day. There was always activity in the resort and the staff was very friendly, especially the greeter at the "front gate". The only negative was that the...

Originally we had planned on staying two nights but found the town well worth an additional evening. The motel is on the ocean with a fabulous mile or more walkway along the way to quaint little places to eat. We were moved across the street to the only room available which happened to be an enormous handicap room larger than...

The resort is a very strong 4 star . I will happily return for all the usual reasons that everyone writes about. Kid friendly and service, and location. But I do have a question about the poolside umbrellas. Why dont they make more umbrellas available especially knowing that families who arrive at the pool at 10am or later will probably...

Just got back from a 5 day stay with my sister. We stayed in the towers. The room was not large but it had two full sized beds that were very comfortable. The furnishings seemed fairly updated and clean though our carpet was quite stained and the sliding glass door was difficult to open and close. Shower pressure was good....

We stayed here the first weekend in June. Everything was perfect. The setting is gorgeous with a lawn overlooking the Marginal Way (easy access), ocean, and beach. There are plenty of chairs on the lawn and around the pool. It's walking distance to everything. A great vacation.
