We arrived in Whittier expecting to catch an evening ferry only to find the ferry delayed until 8.00am next morning. As a result there was a mad scramble for accommodation. We were fortunate to get a room at this Inn at what we considered a reasonable price. There was a Shuttle to and from the ferry which was good .The... More

We didn't actually stay at the motel but at the Begich Towers where Anchor Inn rents out several condos. We stayed on the 14th floor and had a two bedroom corner unit with huge windows overlooking the busy harbor. It was so much fun to watch the boats, trains, etc come and go, load and unload. We loved watching the... More

The room was old and cramped - a hodgepodge of furniture. Couldn't get the TV to work but had internet, a hot shower and an ocean view. Was walking distance to the waterfront and a good value for Whittier. The check in was in the bar and not clearly marked. When we found only one bed when we had paid... More

My wife and I stayed one night at the Anchor Inn in Whittier in late May 2015. A number of sources we’d read gave us the impression that the Anchor Inn was a barely acceptable, low-budget place, with a lot of rough edges. This was not the case (except for the very reasonable room rate). This place does have a... More

I didn't stay at the Inn, but decided to have a fish fry while waiting for my cruise ship to depart. It was great, a huge portion, well-prepared. I was very pleased. Service was very good. The restaurant is adjacent to the bar, which was generously populated with locals and travellers alike. The World Cup Games were on, so it... More

Wonderful people work here and the accomodations are not luxurious but are clean and comfy. We were there for 6 days and had a wonderful time. I was impressed with the friendly staff at the hotel, grocery store and restaurant. My family had a memorable stay I would recommend this hotel.

Overview: My wife and I were looking for a cheap place to stay in Whittier; therefore, we chose the Anchor Inn. Pros: The room was clean. We didn't have any problems with noise. The staff was friendly. $94 isn't too bad for a hotel room in Alaska. Cons: $94 is too much for an "over glorified dorm room" that was... More

Wow it was a step back into the 60's with its dorm bunker styled rooms with a great view of the train yard and the smell of heating oil that lingered throughout. Luckily our 3.5 year old loves trains so he loved seeing the trains shunting troublesome trucks around. The place was clean with a standard private bathroom, towels, bar... More

The Anchor Inn looks pretty unassuming, and there's nothing fancy about it. Some reviews I read before checking in compared the place to a truck stop, but almost all mentioned how clean and decent the hotel was. I'm happy to say they were right: there's nothing impressive about the hotel, but at the same time nothing to complain about it... More

I was a little bothered to pay $100 for the room judging by the view from outside but there aren't many options in town and it was very clean inside. As clean as any room in many of the nicer hotels I've been in. And plenty roomy! The harbor view was great and the staff were very helpful and kind.... More
