We have been going to the Historic Anchor Inn for several years from when they first started the renovations to the cottages to the destination it has become today. Each visit has been better than the previous. The beds are comfortable, rooms cozy, and warm, and the service is world class. Don't come expecting cable/satellite TV, big screen monitors, or...

Last year we began planning for a family reunion on the Oregon coast, for June of 2015, as we have done a few times before, and our daughter-in-law, who lives in Portland searched for a place that would accomodate 40 of us. It looked like we would have to get two houses. She came upon the Historic Anchor Inn and... More

It was a pleasure to stay at this funky, quirky hotel. It's on the older side, but has been remodeled and decorated with vintage items acquired by the owner over the years from thrift shops, garage sales and Ebay. Rooms are large with a living room area and bedroom in the main building for 2 adults. Very friendly staff and... More

This quaint little hotel/motel is almost invisible. Right on Hwy 101-don't miss it. The property is covered with nautical memorabilia besides all rooms being decorated with same. The cabin we had was dog friendly, 1 bedroom. The SMALL bathroom and shower do not meet modern day requirements but were fine for the 2 nights we were there. No Cable TV,... More

Historic. It's old by coastal cities standards. If I remember correctly it was built in the 1940s. The two arms of the motel have been remodeled into two room suites. So far I have not found two suites that are adjacent to each other. They all seem to have unoccupied spaces between them. That makes for quieter nights not hearing... More

The Historic Anchor Inn is a gem on the Oregon Coast. Nestled just off Hwy 101, the Inn is one of the oldest buildings in Lincoln City. The buildings have been lovingly restored without taking away any of the old charm of the original. The rooms do not have cable, but this is not missed because they offer free use... More

We checked this place out in December, While on a photo shoot. It was just so cool. There's tons of antiques everywhere. It was fun roaming around checking them out. Metal peddle cars hanging from the ceiling in the dinning room, old nautical stuff, old movie photos. It took us days to enjoy it all. Kip & Kandi were the... More

We had a 2 room cabin with comfy beds. Loved the breakfasts and interactions with the owners and staff. We brought dominos and enjoyed playing in the game room each night. This is the place I will recommend and go to from now on. Another great thing is the other guests. Everyone is looking for more than a sterile experience... More

This place is amazing. Like they say it is not for everyone, it smells a little musty in some places, but the people are so nice, the breakfast is amazing and I for one LOVE LOVE the decor, lots of fifty's and pieces from another era, you could spend hours just looking at the stuff. Lots of old magazines, scrap... More

Every positive thing other reviewers have written about decor and location and breakfast and staff is absolutely true. Talk about eye candy! That said, we knew it was going to be good when we saw dog portraits in the parking lot (as well as those of other animals). Because we had dogs, we were given a three room cabin...reason enough...
