I really liked this hotel. The men at the front desk were really friendly and helpful. It had a garage under the hotel, which was really convenient during the snow storm we drove into. The rooms are really nice, clean, and they offer great cable. The heat in the room was not controllable so we were really hot (I know,... More

The Anchor Inn is located in a great spot, close to the LIRR & all the major highways. One can get into NYC in 20 minutes. The rooms were clean & the maid service was timely & recently there were renovations in the lobby & breakfast areas. Several rooms have jacuzzis. The free breakfast was good & filling. I would...

We had a very pleasant experience during our 5 night stay at the Anchor Inn during the New Year's Eve holiday. The desk attendant, Jarrod, made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived. He had a wonderful attitude/personality and was most helpful throughout our entire visit. The hotel is in close walking distance to many restaurants, stores, and the... More

This is an OK hotel in a central location with lots of shopping and restaurants within a few blocks. The room was comfortable but there was not way to control the heat so it was a little warm for us. Also, the breakfast was pretty spartan with very little choice. Luckily there was a Starbucks across the street.

We had a very nice time in this hotel for an overnight stay. The location is excellent, with a Starbucks across the street and a cupcake place and stores nearby. It's within walking distance from the Bayside stop on the LIRR. Gerald, who was tending the front desk when we departed, was so friendly and warm, that he made it... More

We appreciate your taking the time to write us a review online. This building was built in 1964 and we are constantly updating the property. The most recent was our common areas (hallway). They are a little bit wider than they were before and they have a really nice clean and fresh look to them now. Hope to have you... More

Staff was very helpful regarding how to get from one location in the city to another. Beds were quite comfortable. Parking was difficult when the hotel was full. Breakfast was just okay. Rooms were clean. Quite convenient to highway and train to downtown New York City.

We stayed overnight and picked the hotel for its convenience and access ability. Rooms were dirty, and they were doing repairs while we were there. Not worth the price and I would not go back . Only convenience was the parking and Starbucks across the street. Carpet was dirty and bed was lumpy. A budget motel would have been a... More
