The Anchor is a basic family owned motel with friendly staff and clean quiet rooms. What makes it special is it's directly across from the ocean - Scarborough beach. You can't beat this motel for price and location. Being able to walk the beach at night is fantastic and to not have to fight with parking to enjoy a very... More

We love this motel! I just booked our 2014 stay which will be our third visit. It is simple, comfortable and very clean. Point Judith Lighthouse, Galilee, Narragansett Pier & Newport are a short drive away. Scarborough Beach is a gem. The sand is clean, people are nice and the waves are perfect for body surfing and boogie boarding. The... More

I'm giving this motel four stars on the basis that what I wanted was to spend all day at the beach. If that's what you're looking for too, this is the perfect spot. It's directly across the street from the Scarborough State Beach. Not only does the motel offer free parking, they encourage you to park there before and after... More

We recently took a trip to Narragansett to celebrate our anniversary and stayed 5 nights at the Anchor Motel. We choose it based on the reviews on this website and we weren't disappointed. The location is perfect. You are right across the street from the beach. We had beautiful weather the whole time and since it was off season there... More

We, a family of three, decided to stay at The Anchor based on reviews from this website as well as it's relative location to Newport. The motel was absolutely spotless and clean. The Anchor suited our needs well as we usually don't spend a lot of time in the hotels when we travel. Is The Anchor a 5 star posh... More

My husband & I decided to spend a few days in beautiful Narragansett & stumbled upon the Anchor motel (well stumbled upon it online!) All the reviews we read were very positive.and ours is too. We did enjoy our stay very much. We had the King bed- room in the corner next to the office, so we didn't have a... More

We love the Anchor and have returned 3 years in a row. The rooms are plain but outfitted with fridges, clean comfy beds, new AC units, and good TVs. Aside from free coffee and donuts in the morning, there are no other amenities except for your own little porch where you can take in ocean views, fresh air, and peace.... More

A friendly family run business. Rooms are simple & clean. All have tiny porches to sit and read or relax on. Parking is easy, the beach is across the street. No restaurants or shops in an easy walk, but plenty in a 5 minute drive. The only thing that needs improving here is the plainness of the rooms - they... More

Great place to stay to walk to the beach. As others have written, the motel is run by a friendly family who keep it spotless. I appreciated having a fridge with a mini freezer. The beds were really comfortable. The tiny porch is nice to sit on any time of the day with a view of the ocean. This is... More

The best thing about the motel is its location: directly across Ocean Road from the beach. When Ocean Rd isn't mobbed with traffic, you can step out the door, and hear and smell the ocean. But it's a motel, and a bit quaint. It's a little damp. The layout of the room, especially the bathroom, is quirky. It can be... More
