Did not have that "motel" feeling. More of a mom & pop comfortable feeling. The owner lives on site, she is a very nice woman. She gave us a great price, we booked last minute & we didn't regret it at all. Very comfortable & safe feeling at this motel. The owner was nice, helpful & friendly. House keeping were... More

Overnighted at the Anchor Motel on the way back from NYC. Nice looking property, friendly owners on site, excellent rate @ $50. The owners let us look at the room before booking in. Room may be somewhat outdated but it was fine for 1 night; beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Nothing fancy but not the horror stories others have... More

Ok.... I understand your establishment is a Mom and Pop place. But .... when the power goes out, one would think you could call the office / front desk to let them know about the situation. No heat and no power no answer. Wow!! It's November for goodness sake. Address the issue. Not snowy or icy conditions, but COLD. Signed,... More

Stayed two nights, (working locally) it was dirty smelled bad, and I was flea bitten head to toe, and when I asked for a refund I was told no, just flat out no, even though I had called that evening and said I was getting bit. My option was to sleep in my truck and wake up with a bad... More

We stayed there one night over 18 months ago and it was quaint and ok. The restaurant near by did a delicious breakfast but I read on a review that they accept pets. I just called to arrange a return and hey do not allow pets.

The Anchor Motel was an excellent bargain. Rooms were cleaned daily. Only negative is that all the rooms are smoking but it was an ok trade-off for the price. I brought a scented candle and once you are inside, it is really not that bad. Very easy drive to the Falls. I think this place is a better option than... More

When we first checked in, everything seemed ok. It wasn't the cleanest, but it seemed fine for just one night. The rate was incredibly low; staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was equipped with a microwave, mini fridge, and TV. The bed was decent, no bed bugs, sheets were clean, just a few burn marks from cigarettes, which... More

For a portion of my trip in Western New York, I stayed at a more upscale hotel. However, I wanted a change and love the Niagara River area, so I stayed at the Anchor Motel for a couple nights. It was worth the money, convenient and had parking right in front of the room. The room was even equipped with... More
