First, and most importantly to me, this hotel was very clean inside and out. The staff was very friendly and ready to offer help and advice whenever asked. Fresh baked cookies and lemonade in the afternoon were wonderful and much appreciated, along with coffee and tea all day in the library. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. We also... More

Location, Location, Location at a five star inn. Spent a week in the Hyannis room celebrating our 50th anniversary.. Every thing this Inn had to offer was excellent from the room, staff, view. Could not ask for or expect anything more! It is at the center of the Cape and less than 8 minute walk to so many things. 5... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. Book regularly for high-end, discerning clients. Never a problem. Janet is incredibly professional and a pleasure to deal with. Loved the fire pit at night, down by the water.

We spent two days here last year and loved it. Really hard to beat beautifully maintained inside and out an overlooking the harbor. We took a fast ferry to Nantucket for the day and coming back ate outside at Spankys. We drive up from New Jersey just to come here

We wanted to RELAX for our 34th Wedding Anniversary. The Anchor In Hotel was even better than I had hoped for. My husband works very hard and I wanted to gift him a simple anniversary present this year: a truly RELAXING weekend. I also wanted a pool and hopefully, a view of the harbor.

We stayed two nights at the Anchor Inn and were pleased with our accommodations, the breakfast, and the hotel's convenient location. We were also thoroughly impressed with the staff's warmth and helpfulness. We did have an issue with our air conditioning on the first night, but it was corrected. The breakfast was very good and met our needs just fine.... More

Amazing how this hotel gets such a high rating when it has so many flaws. Such a narrow field of view of the water and many rooms are overlooking the parking lot just situated in front of the water. No clear view of the water unless you are on the second floor. Manager is too strict to honor requests for... More

Dear Ik We are sorry that we did not meet or exceed your expectations. In 28 years we have never had a guest request to move to a different guest room that was further from the water for a better view. It would have been our pleasure to change your room assignment however we were sold out and it was... More

From management to housekeeping the staff at this hotel where extremely professional and courteous. Unfortunately the weather during our stay scuttled most of our plans, but the front desk staff made some great recommendations and helped to salvage our trip. The bottom line is this is a great "Mom and Pop" Hotel run by people who actually care.
