We really liked the new furnishings and freshly painted walls. We have always enjoyed the location since it allows us to dock our boat from the parking lot. You do have to pay to store your boat trailer at one of the nearby marinas though. Hotel has very light breakfast.

Although I did not stay there I am reviewing for a $174 charge for canceling a reservation 2 months in advance. If this is an example of how they treat potential customers, then service could not be too good.

Unfortunately when this reservation was confirmed it was made as a non-cancellable advanced purchase reservation using one of the on-line travel website’s.

So glad we found the Anchor Inn for our Chincoteague visit in September 2014. Previously we had been staying at the more upscale chains--their rates have gone too high! The Anchor Inn has well maintained, clean, basic rooms. It's right on the Chincoteague Channel with great views from the balcony. We stayed in room 238. We especially liked the bathroom.... More

We stayed 8/19-8/23 and loved the location. The pool was great, big and clean. There is a picnic shack with eqipment for steaming crabs etc...nice pier to hand out on. The room was very clean and the continental breakfast nice. Only complaint was poor internet service. It is in walking distance of Main St shops and restaurants. If you want... More

We stayed here during the pony penning week from Monday until Friday. After an initial misunderstanding with our room, we happily settled in. Breakfast each day was sufficient, pool was nice & clean as were the rooms. We were able to walk into 'town' and also to the carnival each evening which was very convenient. I'd definitely stay here again.

I will preface this statement with the fact that we did not stay at this Inn. Here are our two issues: 1) You have to reserve via telephone. I called and reserved a room for a Saturday night about 1 month in advance and was told I had to cancel by Thursday evening to get a refund. I was told... More

Overall, had a good experience at the Anchor Inn. Rooms are clean, and have a nice view of the bay. Breakfast was pretty decent - the sausage sandwiches sure went over well with my group of weary travelers! The hotel is located about ten minutes from Assateague, and conveniently located near the downtown shops and restaurants, which are about 5-10... More
