We stayed at the Anchorage for one night at the beginning of August. I asked for non-smoking, so we were put on the 4th floor (I believe). As we walked to our room, I saw an ashtray on the adirondack chair in front of the room next to mine. I knew what that meant. Although smoking was not allowed in... More

The place is absolutely fine, rooms are big, wi-fi works, beds are comfortable, and though I didn't see any evidence of the coffee and muffins I don't doubt that it existed. However when all said and done its a 2/3* motel but it carries a 4* price, particularly off season, so not great value

Pet friendly, warm and perfectly located on the shore of Silver Lake...excellent views, close to shopping and dining. Muffins, juice and all the fresh coffee you can drink each morning from 7:30 to 9:30...you'll be taken care of by the manager, Kara, and her staff. Across the street is their marina and boat ramp...we enjoyed our stay.

Overall the motel is what one would expect from a beach motel. Room was clean but outdated but had everything one would need. Water pressure is poor but it's an island so that's what you get. Staff was friendly but most important were the views. Views are of Silver Lake,the marinas as well as ferry docks on the sound side.... More

We were looking for a place to stay for a couple nights, and got the last room available! Great view of Silver Lake, loved the balcony, which runs across the whole front of the hotel, so it's shared. The ONLY issue I had was that they allowed smoking on the balcony, and there was so much smoke, even cigar smoke,... More

An excellent location right on the harbor and in the middle of much of what is going on. View from the room as well as chairs on all the balconies make a great place to sit out at any time and enjoy the ambience of Ocracoke Island

The view out of the room was fantastic of Silver Lake. The pool and restaurant are across the street right at the marina. It was great to see the boats come in after a day out at sea. The staff was great and gave us good recommendations and directions. We had a kitchenette and was able to go across the... More

The room was fantastic! The king bed was to die for and the view was fantastic. Kara was a fantastic employee, always very pleasant and helpful. Sherrie was also a superb front desk agent, you can tell she is a very hard worker! We had a great stay and will be back!

We have stayed here before and just love the view of Silver Lake and the marina. The entire staff is very friendly and very helpful with any questions that we had through our week there--you can tell they all seem to like working at such a great place to stay on the island. Our room this past trip was in... More

I just got back from my first trip to Ocracoke where I stayed for one week. I chose The Anchorage Inn based on reviews and the view. I asked for the fourth floor, since it was just me and I knew it would be the best view and very little chance of noise above me (there was someone in the... More
