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

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

very happy with my stay here very clean and great walking distance to and from the beach and boardwalk. The big plus for me was this seems to be a family run business the staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this place to my friend and family.

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.
