Stayed overnight for the Blessing of the Fleet road race and it was a great decision. Motel is about 100 feet from Scarborough beach and it's a classic beach motel. Family fun motel who were all very friendly, rooms were basic but very clean and cosy. Overall great little motel if you just want a place to sleep in a... More

Our family took a trip to the beach, and stayed at the Anchor Motel. We have never traveled to this area so we booked online, which is always an adventure, but we struck gold at the Anchor Motel. I loved the motel for following reasons, access to the beach was amazing. You park at the hotel which is less than... More

Very relaxing, quiet and right across from Narragansett beach. Small, family owned, very simple, clean. This is not a major hotel chain, no room service, gym or pool. Just a place to relax and enjoy the beach. Easy access to loads of great eateries. The owners are very helpful and happy to offer local advice. Enjoy your stay.

The reviews are accurate, this place is an absolute gem! Perfect location across from the beach. We traveled with 2 kids and the B&B rooms were great. The family that owns it are kind and attentive, you won't be disappointed.

We have come here for over 20 years since our children were babies. They loved it so much they named it affectionately as "Beach Hotel". For a family, not only is the quality of the hotel outstanding, but the beach and water is beautiful, great restaurants, surrounding views, and gentle surf for the kids to body surf and "boogy board"...

We stay here every summer and love it. The location is a less than 2 minute walk to the beach, the rooms are clean, and easy drive to restaurants, other beaches, and shopping. The bed and breakfast rooms are our favorite as they are bigger and quieter with a fairly roomy deck and common area inside. Owners are always there... More

My Daughters and I decided to go away for a weekend a few years ago and we found The Anchor Motel. It is so peaceful there, right across from the beach so we can get up early and go watch the sunrise over the water it is so beautiful. The owners are so nice and caring always making sure you...

The woman in my family book several rooms together here every fall. Great location, as it is just across the street from Scarborough Beach. Just a short drive, or long walk from Iggy's doughboys, and Aunt Carries. Rooms are always clean. Owners are kind, pleasant, and helpful. We have been staying here every sept/oct for a few years now and... More

Wow, just wow! My wife and I like to shoot down to Rhode Island from our home in Massachusetts as often as we can. We usually stay at the Scarborough Beach Hotel just a half a mile down the road or so, but this time we decided to try the Anchor Hotel and we were thrilled!! The family that owns... More

We found this tiny motel several years ago and have thought about this place as our private refuge. I hesitated to review this location because of concern that if the secret got out there would be less opportunity for us to stay here. The great majority of reviews about The Anchor Motel are quite accurate. To best describe this place... More
