The room here is okay, smells old. The bed is hard, t.v. is small and in the living area, bathroom and shower are small, water pressure is good. There is a small sofa, fridge, microwave, small kitchen table. I wouldn't want to cook in here. Walls are thin and there is a yelling kid next door. I really didn't expect... More

The owners also own Northwood motel. Not fancy but clean, new paint. Refrigerator and microwave. Coffee at office also continental breakfast. It isn't on the bay and you can't see it from motel. Walking distance from restaurants. price was fair. Fine for Just a night or two. Owner it's very friendly and accommodating.

After many years of travel I have discovered some truisms about motels. If the clerk can't speak English, there might be a problem If the clerk can't figure out how to run the credit card machine, (Continually ran the card backwards telling me the card was no good), you might have a problem If the sign says, "Weekly or Monthly...

This motel is clean, quaint, quiet and small, with a nice view of the Drayton Harbor and Semiahmoo Bay. It is close to all including restaurants and shops in Blaine, WA. The rooms are well appointed, with air conditioners, and light breakfasts are provided, if desired. The bathrooms include soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers. I would definitely stay again, if... More

We were fishing up Northern Vancouver Island and usually try and stay in the area of Bellingham until we continue our trip back to Montana. The Anchor Inn was our stop this time and will probably continue to be for years to come! Our basic needs were overwhelmingly met with a very clean room, full kitchen (which we didn't need... More

As a researcher who's spending the next few months researching about poverty and other matters in this state, allow me say that I have had an enjoyable past week staying here. And intend to do so for a few more weeks. Why? Because as a researcher on a budget, I would be hard pressed to find another place which exhibits... More

Starts with the office....There is no one in it. After tracking down a person in a room (sketchy) I checked in.. had to squint while paying as lamp was wayyyyy too bright. But then.. The room was dim. smelled of the 60s. The bed sheets weren't clean (made them redo it) the comforter had stains of food on it. The... More

We stayed here for a week, it is basic, has everything you need. The room is dated, its like staying with an elderly aunt, in her back guest room. The walls were paper thin, which meant that when the neighbouring guest received news of a death in his family, we did too. We heard every word, as he spoke on... More

At check-in Jessica was really, really nice, great personality, I had chosen Anchor Inn as it's a quieter section of town and it overlooks The Bay, the pricing was better, too at $60 + tax. Room was clean, simple, it is an older property. In the morning I chatted with her outside while looking out at The Bay. A nice... More

The motel was very clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Motel is newly remodeled and the rooms are comfortable. The location is also great and convenient- very close to the border.
