It's not the Ritz, but it is very comfortable. In this part of Narragansett, there aren't many motels. The Anchor is clean, comfortable bed, no cobwebs or chipping/peeling paint. I definitely would come again. The location is excellent.

An updated old fashion motel across the street from Scarborough State Beach. It was a last minute decision to travel to RI and we were glad to have found this motel. Very clean and comfortable with a refrigerator and a separate area for the sink. We Love that they are "green".

This motel is great for it's proximity to the beach. The beds were a bit firm for my taste and the tub didn't drain well. I would definitely return with my wife but unsure if there would be enough room for a small child who requires a crib or pack n play.

My husband and I were so glad we found this place. The prices were great. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The owner was friendly and helpful. He was more than happy to answer questions about the towns history and recommended places to eat. More than satisfied with this sweet motel.

Could not have found a better place in Narragansett or Newport. Super clean family-owned hotel. Gene is terrific. Had coffee and doughnuts in the office each morning of our 4 day stay. Easy ride into Newport. Directly across the street from a great beach. Enjoyed walking in the area on the beach, paths along the beach, and on the walker-friendly... More

This is exactly the type of motel I remember from the 1960's, updated with WiFi and a better TV, but keeping the feel of a well kept, family-run place. Chatting with the owner, who is mostly at hand, is a great way to get a history of the local area. The rooms are comfortable and modest, but so are the... More

I stayed at the Anchor Motel in late April 2014 while travelling on business. I chose the motel as it was near the beach and ocean and appealed to me over the large chain hotels nearby in Kingston. The motel room was very clean, pleasant and quiet. I stayed in Room 14 at the end of the motel closest to... More

We stayed at the Anchor Motel this past week with our twin boys. It was a great motel. I have nothing but good things to say about our visit. The room was extremely clean, and we are all clean freaks. The location was great. I really enjoyed waking to the sound of the ocean. Waking up to that view every... More

Our family has been coming here every year for the past four years. We look forward to staying at the Anchor Motel. Beautiful, clean, friendly motel with relaxing views of the water from every room. It is also in an excellent location. Whoever wrote a negative review about this place is crazy!!! We are very picky about cleanliness and this... More

We have stayed at the Anchor Motel every year for the last 5-6 years and we could never ask for a better motel or location. One way is Point Judith & Galilee and the other way is Newport. The restaurants in close vicinity are excellent, everything from seafood to Italian and fried dough! Prices are reasonable and the best beach... More
