I opted for the Anchor In in Hyannis for a short New Year break on the Cape and was impressed by the location, accommodation and service offered. The room (a king-size) was clean, comfortable and well-furnished with a small balcony and free internet was an added bonus. The continental breakfast was excellent and included a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, bagels and muffins; tables for two were set overlooking the pool area and offered a lovely view of the harbour. The breakfast room manager was friendly and welcoming and offered advice and tips about where to visit and what to do on the Cape. I've paid much higher rates in New England for inferior accommodation and believe that the Anchor In represents extremely good value - I can wholeheartedly recommend it. On a slightly different note - and this is certainly no fault of the hotel - I was disappointed to find no public New Year's Eve events/fireworks in Hyannis as there are in other towns on the Cape (Chatham and Sandwich); maybe this is something Hyannis could consider in future years.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the harbour - first floor rooms are best for this

The staff and this hotel couldn't have been better. We stayed from 12/26 through 12/30. The staff was very helpful in suggesting local restaurants as many were closed in the off season. They also helped plan some Winter beach outings. I liked the fact that the Library was open late and coffee and tea were available there. The breakfast was more than adequate. Al in all a great stay. We will definately return here.

We stayed in the anchor inn for 3 nights at The West Barnstable room which was just great. It has everything you need and more, very spacious clean and comfortable and with wonderful views.
The breakfast is also more than enough .bagels, muffins. Cheese fruits and more.
There are also 24/7 hot drinks at the lobby that you can drink there or take to your room.
The most wonderful thing in this hotel is the staff. So nice and helpful and always with a smile. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Anchor inn, Hyannis 5th to 7th December.
We were immediately greeting by a friendly guy who checked us in with ease.
The hotel is lovely. It's right by the waterfront. It's about a 10 minute walk to the picture postcard Main Street. We were surprised by how many shops, bars and restaurants are open in the so called off season. The hotel is spotlessly clean and all the hotel staff were met were genuinely friendly offering spot on advice when asked for restaurant recommendations etc.
The cute lounge with a open fire is perfect for relaxing after breakfast. The hotel has a lovely ambience fitting perfectly with cape cod's amazing scenery. We took a day trip to Martha's Vineyard which we drove down to wood's hole for the 45 minute ferry. Great trip. You can also jump on a ferry (2minutes walk from hotel) to Nantucket.
Our room was 137. I'd recommend a harbour view just for sunrise alone. Will we be back? You bet! if we are ever back in the USA. Would I recommend to family / friends? absolutely.

Room Tip: Harbour view

We picked this place based on TripAdvisor reviews - and couldn't have made a better choice. This hotel is truly a "home from home" with its cozy, comfortable and warm atmosphere. In more detail:
The hotel is quietly and conveniently located in Hyannis at the harbor, nearby shopping mall, restaurants, etc. The "this is really nice" feeling got us as we entered the lobby, where we were greeted friendly and with a big smile. There's a lounge with (free) coffee, tea and cookies in the afternoon, with lots of games to play and books to read. It is just like being in a living room that welcomes you.
The room in the main building was large and very clean, offered a small walk in closet, comfortable bed, TV, (free) WLAN, fridge, coffee maker, heating/AC and a balcony. The only "downside" - hence not an excellent rating - were the rooms seem to have walls (almost) as thin as paper, so we could hear our neighbors talk. Admittedly, we have a light sleep, too.
The rate included breakfast - cold, but good and plenty. Cereals, bagels, muffins, eggs, yogurt, fruit, you name it. We were even encouraged to take something for the day.
Would we book the Anchor In again - most definitely and anytime!
