Stayed for one night while we were visiting area wineries. The Lodge was booked (and pricey). We had a King room #41. The room was very clean (small), the bed was comfortable, there was a fridge and microwave. Bathroom was tiny, but clean and looked to be newly remodeled. Staff was friendly. Could not figure out wall air conditioning but... More

Located this motel at the last minute and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and recently renovated. The owners are very friendly and personable. The rooms are small, but it was all we needed for a one night stay. We would stay again and recommend this place to others.

We just spent two nights at "The Anchor" and it was a step back in time. The folks that run it are nice and the property locale is good (if you like hanging out on the dirty, run-down "strip"), but our room was dark, musty and had a really strange smell. The bathroom was hideous and the shower stall was... More

The Anchor is the only place my husband and I stay when we go to GOTL. The rooms are always clean. And Phil and Cathy (the owners) are two of the nicest, most hospitable people you will ever meet. Phil works magic with his meat smoker, and Cathy's margaritas are awesome. We've been going to GOTL for about 15 years,... More

I recently returned from another trip to thr Anchor. The hosts Phil and Kathy make you feel like you are at home with family. There attention to detail from spotlessly clean rooms to making sure you have enough sweetner to your complementary coffee (which is in your room) is the best I have ever experienced and I have travled coast...

I was desperate for a room in the area when I called the Anchor Motel. My son had qualified for a big swim meet at The Spire Institute in Geneva, and I had 5 days to find a room--in August! I talked to Phil, the owner, and he was able to squeeze us in, although we had to change rooms... More

We came here last year and had a great time. The owners are so nice and helpful. If there is anything you need and you ASK, they will do everything they can to help you out. They also know the strip better than anyone and you can get some great advice on where to eat/what to do. We stayed here... More
