We stayed one night here. We stayed in cabin number 4 "the bright color room" This place has a very unique vibe to it, made for a fun night. No network tv, but plenty of dvds to choose from. Awesome breakfast too! Will for sure be back!

We love the Historic Anchor Inn. Its a regular 2-3 day stop on our annual motorcycle trip to the Oregon Coast. Kip, the owner, has done a marvelous job of filling the premises (inside and out) with collectibles, antiques and unique conversation pieces. Unique perks like free popcorn and DVD videos, cupcakes & cookies at the front desk make this... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a unique, quirky motel. It is not a cookie cutter motel run by a big corporation. It's small, old, and packed with antiques, collectibles and items of historical interest. The room we were in was smallish, but fine for two people - as long as you watched where you were walking. There's no... More

This was one of quirkiest Inns we've ever stayed at! Despite staff looking a little flustered when we first arrived at the Inn, they were friendly, helpful and made us feel welcomed. We got the two bedroom "dog suite" which means that every knick knack, figurine, painting, picture in the room (and there were plenty) represented some breed of dog.... More

We had a unique situation in that the Anchor Inn worked with us in accommodating a family reunion. With 50 people coming into to town, we were able to book the entire hotel for our family event. Kip and his staff were exceptional to work with and the entire family loved the 4 nights we were there. The rooms provided... More

We just got home from a week long trip to Lincoln City and absolutely LOVED The Anchor Inn! we stayed in the "Horse room", ( the cabin rooms have a theme, and the lodge rooms just have amazing collections. The owner is an avid antique collector, and the hotel is like a museum-art gallery-showroom all in one. The home made... More

The Inn has obviously been around awhile and is furnished with assorted interesting "stuff." We enjoyed the setting inside and out. The pros: we found the atmosphere pleasant, the evening cookies and popcorn. It was a suite and that was nice. We enjoyed a walk down to the beach overlook. The cons: We stayed here two nights and were surprised... More

Visiting the Anchor Inn is like walking into a Nautical Disneyland of the 40's and everyday is a throwback Thursday. It was our first visit and we didn't know what to expect. What we found was a well-run Inn with helpful staff who went above and beyond. We enjoyed our first day so much we decided to stay another day.... More
