“Quaint and Quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I just returned from a very relaxing vacation in Antigua and stayed at the Anchorage Inn. This hotel has what you need if you are looking for a place to relax with not alot of hustle and bustle. All the staff are extremely friendly and looked after my every need. Although it was a slow time, it was exactly what I was looking for. I could relax at the pool without any bothers or take the short walk to the beach for fun and drinks. The hotel grounds are kept clean and very beautiful. The room was clean and kept. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and close to the beach, town, and local places such as restaurants and casinos this is the place to stay. The Anchorage Inn has just what you need to relax and have no worries! Thanks to all for a wonderful stay...I look forward to my return trip!!

My stay at the Anchorage Inn was very pleasant. The room itself was spacious and extremely clean with high ceiling and a balcony outside, a great value for the price. The staff members were always friendly and attentive when we needed any help. Great location also, only a short distance not only from town but a gorgeous beach. Would definitely recommend the Anchorage Inn.

The hotel is clean, the rooms are large and well equipped (even German TV), a balcony with pool and sea view was also present. The staff is friendly and will help one in the tour booking. Unfortunately, there is only breakfast at the hotel (not very rich for the price) and you must go 10 minutes walk to the beach. For this, a large supermarket is just around the corner. Overall, I enjoyed the stay and can recommend the hotel at any rate, however, I find the whole room a bit high. In Antigua you will not find hardly a cheaper hotel.

According to the website of the hotel : "Each room has a private balcony". Well, mine had no balcony, as I think half a dozen of their rooms.
Room was quite small, with a large king size bed occupying most of the room area. Not a lot of space remaining for storing my stuff. When coming back from the beach, I always had difficulty to find a place to let my towel dry. The missing balcony didn't help. The room was clean. One problem of that room is that you have no privacy when the curtains are open, as all people of the other rooms pass right in front of the room's window to access theirs.
Location of the hotel is not bad, but you are a little bit in the middle of nowhere, near a large pond with a lot of birds. Take some time to look at the pelicans fishing there, it is amazing.
I went to the beach by foot, either to Runaway beach (by going around the pond clockwise) or Dickenson beach (around the pond anti-clockwise); something like a small half hour to go to either one. But be warned, the road is a little bit dangerous for pedestrians, as the drivers in Antigua drive very fast. If you stay for more than a couple of days you should consider to rent a car to be able to see more of the 365 beaches of Antigua.
Room had a fridge and a microwave (which was doing a terrific noise as the mechanism of the rotating table was broken). If you want to self-cater, one of the biggest supermarket of the island (named 1st Choice) is 10 minutes away by foot (on the left when leaving the hotel).
Free breakfast is composed of fresh fruit salad and a choice of either toasts and marmalade or pancakes, all freshly prepared for you on demand.
There is a good Internet connection (wired) in the room for free.
Taxi to/from the airport is USD16 and takes something like 15-20 minutes.

We visit Antigua every year but wanted somewhere to stay near St Johns before going on to Montserrat. We checked out the reviews and nearly didn't book because of 1 or 2 dreadful ones (although all the other reviews are very positive).
What we have found is a truly honest, safe and secure, excellent-for-value gem close to the capital, and we wish we were staying longer! The staff have all been more than helpful, the room spotlessly clean, the bed exceptionally large and comfortable and the continental breakfasts that we elected to have, wholesome, fresh and very tasty.
We travel a lot in the Caribbean and we wish that all the places we have encountered would come up to the traditional Caribbean atmosphere and high standards that the Anchorage Inn sets.The hotel is quieter than the management would like but we will definitely be returning! We booked directly with the hotel. Truly excellent value for money - we can not recommend it highly enough.

We have no regrets for staying at the Anchorage Inn in Antigua.It is affordable, comfortable, clean, tranquil and a quiet family owned hotel which made our vacation a most memorable one. The building, decor and environment continue to maintain the history of the island and exudes a tropical feeling. The Anchorage Inn is idealy located within walking distance from the beach, deli/supermarket, just outside the main town of St Johns and close to the airport. The staff is very helpful and cordial. These qualities made us feel welcome.They enquired regularly about our well being and were always prepared to do all in their powers to make us comfortable and happy. If you want to experience a dream vacation, one that is comfortable, affordable and memorable then we suggest you stay at the Anchorage Inn.

Room Tip: "Room overlooking the pool"
