“A wonderful home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Anchor Inn over the weekend. Growing up going to Boca Grande, it is special when you get to share it with friends. This townhouse really made it all the more special. It was conveniently located in town, and it is a quick cart ride to the beach. The private pool was great after being at the beach. (the deck around the pool gets VERY hot though and burned our little ones toes so be careful!) The kitchen was equipped and there was plenty of room to entertain, cook, etc.

We had one maintenance call and while the problem was solved quickly once received, it took three calls to get a call back from our rental management company.

Having just recently returned from our favorite place in Florida and reading the reviews I felt obligated to respond to a previous poster. The owners listened to you. New fridge , new couch nice touch ups and improvements. Love the place, keep up the good work. Needless to say, we've been staying there, will continue going there and simply love the place

Room Tip: Units #1 & #2 are one bedroom efficiency units complete with kitchens with all the amenities, #3...

Great location close to all of the shops and restaurants. However, the furnishings are very tired, refrigerator is rusted, bathroom tile needs to be caulked. Worst is that you can not turn the temperature down below 70 and they don't supply any bars of soap or shampoo in the bathroom. They advertise a heated pool...NOT. No maid service. This place is not worth $200 a night.
This could really be a cute place if they redid the whole place.

We stayed in unit 3. Perfect for a family of 4. Great location and the front porch is the best hangout! We would have given this 5 stars had it been slightly cleaner- with more modern furniture, especially the TV. The unit needs a deep clean - lots of sand and dust hiding. We vacation here often and rarely watch TV, but my dad wanted the Sunday night football game, and we struggled with the older SD model. Also, we never found the free wifi password. But we would absolutely stay here again and were pleased overall.

My husband, 10 month old son and I were in town for a wedding in early November and chose the Anchor Inn because the price was right. We stayed in the efficiency (I believe unit 4).. It was very clean and well kept but we did have a leaking fridge which they just told us to throw a towel on the floor over the leak. It wasn't really an inconvenience but a bit tough with a 10 month old crawling around. The Pool was less than desirable as it really doesn't get any sun and the deck is def. not kid friendly. All in all, I think this is a great place for adults and truly the perfect location. If you are looking for a nice little weekend getaway I think this is a great place with great value and it's run by really nice people. If you are staying a little bit longer and looking for a little more luxury I would say check out some other places on the island (which are probably less convenient, besides the Gasparilla Inn) .. I also wouldn't recommend taking a baby or young child here if you are looking to enjoy the pool or deck area.

I have been traveling to Boca Grande for 20 years, always staying on the north end of the island near or with my parents. This trip was for my nephew's wedding at the Gasparilla Inn. I wanted to stay in town, but not pay the prices at the Gasparilla Inn, so I chose the Anchor Inn. It was perfect! I was one block away from the wedding festivities and right in the middle of town. I stayed in the studio (room 2) and it was clean, comfortable and just great. The owner and his brother in law were around the whole weekend and were very friendly. In all, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this inn.
