Reading reviews on goods or services takes a certain skill. It seems like for every good review there is a bad one. I believe if you review something you need to take responsibility to be honest and try and cater to as many readers as possible.
For me, when it comes to hotels/motels, it all starts with a clean room and a hot shower in a safe environment. I understand however some want more. Others want much more.
People are more money conscious today than ever. What most people want is the best possible room with the most amounts of amenities for the least amount of money.
Rooms at the Anchorage are not four diamond suites, however neither is the price. Let’s start with what you’ll have to live without at this quaint Mom and Pop style motel. As the other Reviewers pointed out, there is no coffee in the room, no big thick thirsty towels, (though my towel was more than adequate), no continental breakfast, no wide screen TV, no hair dryer, no alarm clock/radio, no mini-fridge, no microwave, no balcony or chairs, no pool, and no lush landscaping. The property is not located by Rehoboth’s beach and boardwalk.
Now let’s talk about what you will get. For one of the most competitive prices in the Rehoboth Beach area you will get a clean, comfortable room. It should be noted there is a new annex so the type of room you end up with may be different than what your friend stayed in a week ago.
You will be treated with respect and kindness by friendly people. It seems like they truly appreciate your business.
As mentioned earlier, one of the few things I look for is cleanliness. The room was clean. The bathroom was clean and extra large. The hot water pressure could have been stronger however was more than adequate. The beds will need to be replaced at some point down the road however they still have some life left. The older style TV had a ridiculous number of stations to choose from however the cable company did not seem to have a “channel guide” which made viewing TV a challenge to say the least. I’m not a big TV watcher, especially when I’m on vacation, so to me this was not an issue.
The complex is located on Route 1 about ten minutes from the beach. You are literally surrounded by Rehoboth’s famous Outlets and Restaurants.
The furnishings work. I appreciate the desk and chair as I always seem to find myself doing a little work on the road.
There is a generous supply of parking.
This is a two story motel so if you, or someone in your party, is handicapped please mention it when you make the reservation.
So what is the bottom line? If you want a lot of hotel frills you will find them in the Rehoboth area, however, you will have to pay for them. If you are looking for a nice, clean, comfortable room for a night or two to hit the boards and do some shopping, and price is a consideration, look no further.
