“Great option!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a weekend getaway with our teenaged daughters. The room was clean, price was great! About 5 mins from Rehoboth Beach and 15 mins from Cape Henlopan State Park. The park beach is much less crowded.
Ask for a room with a microwave and fridge, makes it much nicer to chill drinks and food before a beach day. Front desk staff friendly, close to Food Lion and restaurants. Much cheaper than nearby hotels!

As previous reviewers have said, this is a no-frills motel but clean and a good value. No hand towels, no shampoo, no hair dryer -- but if you're forewarned, you can bring your own. We did not have any problems with noise. You will have to drive to the beach fighting traffic on the coastal highway but that's the case with any hotel along this stretch of the road.

Had a great meal at The Pickled Pig Pub right across the highway.

We stayed 2 nights - had 3 rooms- all were clean & staff was very friendly. Had mini fridge & microwaves in our rooms- Price was very fair for fourth of July weekend. Just a short drive away from beach & fishing. Would stay there again!!!!

As always, I plan at the last minute. Imagine my surprise when I was able to find a place that had a vacancy and was within my price range. The Anchorage was nice, the room was big and clean. It was comfortable and once we put the AC on it did not take long for the room to cool down. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating to my (very) early check-out needs.
The only cons: Not enough towels and a little further from the beach than I would have liked (about 4 miles one way). And stay away from Crabby Dicks next-door: GROSS!!!
All in all a great value. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms in the "tower" are going to be quieter because the motel sits directly off of Coasta...

The rate was great. The room was large. What was missing? There were no hand towels (this is still unusual in hotels/motels, fortunately). There was no comfortable chair, just the desk chair (not particularly comfortable). If the room were arranged properly, there was more than enough room for a chair. The soundproofing was as others have stated. There were two bath towels, not three (sign of a five circle hotel). The room was clean and generally comfortable. This is another place that deserves three and one-half circles if that were available. As I said, it was an excellent value but falls short of four or five circles.

We stayed at the Anchorage Motel as part of a wedding party. The motel was clean and typical for a beach resort motel. While the motel was clean the bathrooms were somewhat dated and older looking. Either that or they had a lot of wear and tear. The people at check in were very nice and helped us with recommendation and directions to local places to eat. There are zero views from this hotel so do not expect to see anything out your window but a 6 lane highway or the back of a car repair shop. For a road side motel the Anchorage is average if you want a clean bed to sleep in saty here. I would also recommend bringing earplugs because the walls are paper thin. You can hear normal conversations through the walls almost as if they are in the same room as you. You can hear everything, I mean zero noise barrier. We were also woken up by people coming into the motel later at night 2:00am. Not that there was loud partying going till all hours but sometimes when people are saying good night they get a little loud. Some nice things were a 48" flat screen TV w/cable service, and the AC worked good.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs, don't say or do anything you don't want your neighbors to hear, because they...

Stumbled on this place by accident and was quite pleased! How refreshing! Front desk person was very nice and helpful! Room was extremely clean and surprisingly big. No frills or extras, but well worth the price. Won't find any cheaper!
