For starters, when you leave the motel everyone will agree a great place to go is an STD clinic. The service and people were great. However, because of the previous reviews we decided to inspect the sheets. This is where problems occured. We pulled back the comforter and saw that the sheets and pillow was filled with multiple blood stains... More

As other people said, I found hair on the sheets, so don't know if they were changed since last guest. Bathroom door wouldn't even close. The bathroom light and loud fan on switch was way too annoying. Too expensive and not so nice. No thanks to coming again.

We went in both July and August. The staff was friendly and the place was very clean and pleasant. A short distance from the beach. The pool was clean and the entire stay was great. We will be back next year.

The sheets were very dirty and we asked the front desk to send the cleaning lady to change the sheets and also the blankets that smelled bad and had stains. The cleaning lady said they only change the blankets once a week. We had found one earing between the sheets in one of the bed which means they didn't even... More

Last weekend a couple friends and I stayed at Anchor Motel, and we had a great time here. The location was a 5 minute walk from the boardwalk and beach making it very convenient. Also, this hotel is located next to the fire and police departments, making it a safe location. The room was clean enough ... nothing spectacular, but... More
