Pros: Clean, very helpful owner on premise, perks, location, price. Cons: The tsunami siren or air raid siren or whatever that is that seems to be under the bed but is probably on the Police station or verrrrry near of the hotel. Ok, they test it once a day I believe, just that one day they tested it at 6am...... More

We came to this motel for an end of summer quick getaway and we are so glad we did. We had a very clean room with a king size bed and another room attached with 2 double beds and a pull out sofa. Plenty of room for 5 adults. No problems with the cleanliness of the sheets, bathroom or floors.... More

We stayed at the Anchor for two nights and it was clean and the owners are very friendly. Very close the boardwalk, water park mini golf and the arcade (my son's favorite!) We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

The motel has almost everything one wants,good location, cleaning, care, pool and grill. Maybe just be wanting to include a coffee maker, sometimes very early or at night seems to drink a cup a coffee and not leaving the room.

In all the season that I have traveled to the Jersey shore for a summer vacation this Motel was by far the best! Upon arrival the room that we were given location inside right next to the office was not appealing. We like to be able to enjoy the beautiful weather on the balcony outside and watch all the vacationers... More

I stayed August 9th for one night. The room was a great size but the bathroom was so tiny, it felt like an airplane bathroom, the shower was also very small and the water pressure was very low. The room was clean and there was a mini fridge and microwave. We had a problem with the electricity in the room,... More

We are centrally located and everything is walking distance. Once you park your car in the lot you can pretty much walk anywhere in the Seaside Heights. Please call us next time and we... More

Anchor motel was a nice place to stay for a great price. Usually at those prices you can get some VERY sketchy stuff, but not here. The rooms were clean, the staff was extremely accommodating, and the location was good (not very "scenic", but you're there to go to the beach, not sit in the room and look outside!) two... More

Dear Guest, We have not raised our room prices in last 8 years. We have added more free services over the years so our guests are getting most bang for their bucks. We also have done major renovation last year and continue to more improvements each year. In next two years we are going to redo the exterior of the... More

Overall, the hotel was clean, comfortable, and close to the beach/boardwalk. (About 2-3 blocks walk.) We only stayed one night, but the staff were friendly and even let us check in very early (around 12 instead of 3), when we had only hoped to be able to leave our car and come back. The room was not shabby, but could... More
