“Very relaxing weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We try and stay here every year for our anniversary. Since its too cold out for the outdoor pool there is usually not too many children which makes it a very relaxing weekend (for anyone who has little ones, you understand)! They have updated their rooms over the last few years so things stay fresh and not faded. The enclosed sunporch is the best place to sit and read which we can do for hours and you are ovelooking Cape Cod Harbor. There is a continental breakfast offered with the price of the room and that is very nice, muffins, bagels, cereals, etc but certainly enough food to choose from.

We stayed their last week because I had a lot of preop testing . My surgery is 3-27-13 at Cape Cod Hospital. We are from Martha's Vineyard. We are checking in again 3-26-13. Our first stay was above and beyond. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful , we had a private deck, which with pretty views. Do not hesitate booking this motel.you are treated like royalty.

Room Tip: Book a room with your own private deck. Beautiful views.

Just got back from a great getaway weekend on the Cape. It has been a little while since we've been to the Anchor In, only because we have been lucky enough to have a lot of points to get free nights at other hotels but when the points run out this is the only place we like to stay. The new (to us) library room is beautiful as is the rest of the hotel. Everyone is so nice and friendly and the rooms are beautiful and well appointed. Great views of Hyannis Harbor. Would without hesitation recommend the Anchor In to anyone. Hope to be back in the fall. Thanks for another great stay.

When I check in, I feel like I'm coming home. The people at the desk are welcoming, gracious, and smiling. It's a place that I look forward to after a long drive knowing I will be greeted warmly and taken care of. The rooms are beautiful and peaceful and the breakfasts are superb and served in a room that looks directly out to the harbor. It doesn't get any better than the Anchor In.

Room Tip: I like the rooms in the same bulding where the office is located.

This motel is gorgeous. The condition of the rooms, including bathrooms, are excellent and the mattresses are not old and creaky. There are no unpleasant odors, such as mustiness. They provide plenty of towels and new soaps every day. The lobby, hallways, breakfast room and library are beautiful and in excellent condition. They keep this place up by changing something having to do with construction every year. There is plenty of parking as there are additional parking spaces as you drive around the side of the motel. A complementary breakfast is included which has an adequate variety of proteins, carbohydrates and beverages. While some rooms exits are outside, if you wish to exit you room into a hallway, make your reservation in the east or west wings. If you do not want someone above you, simply book your room on the second floor. The sliding glass doors are not the original aluminum ones, which are falling apart, like just about every other motel in Cape Cod. They are modern vinyl sliding glass doors and are in excellent condition. Your sliding door actually exits onto something as well, in this case, a nice wood deck which overlooks the bay. Very beautiful. If you do not want to stay in a dumpy motel, please stay here. Every time I've stayed here, it is the same great experience. Trust me, this motel is either the best, or equal to the best motel on Cape Cod.

Room Tip: I've not stayed in a room which exits to the outside, or is partially under ground level. If you...

If you're looking for very nice accommodations at an inexpensive price this is the one for you. Right on the bay near where the ferries pull up it offers wonderful water views. Rooms were tastefully decorated with sliders overlooking the bay. Ours had a balcony overlooking the bay and pool. Breakfast is included. Hot cereal and 3 kinds of cold cereal were offered with bananas, almonds, cranberries and raisin toppings if you like. Bagels, fresh large muffins and several kinds of bread for toast were offered. I liked the pistachio muffins. Haven't had them in a long time. Beverages include orange and cranberry juice, coffee, different kinds of tea and hot chocolate or just water if that is your preference. Perfect place for families but no pets. There is a large glassed in sun room outside the breakfast room to enjoy the morning paper as well as a charming, fireplaced, breakfast room they call the library. Main Street is a short walk away. Craigville Beach is nearby.
This place consists of 3 buildings in a u-shape around the pool. Only negative was parking. Don't stay out too late or you will have a hard time finding an empty space. We were there during a blizzard and all was very comfy. Would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: We chose the middle size room which they termed "deluxe". That must have been for the bal...

Very nice hotel (actually motel): the decoration is really warm and could come right from a "Home Magazine", the rooms are large, beautiful with such a pretty view on the marina. Very good bathrooms with excellent welcome products and so soft towels. The beds are very comfortable and large. Large balcony with seating. Breakfast has a large choice and the room is very nice, you really feel at home. I can imagine how nice it should be in winter with the fireplace and Christmas decoration. Our kids were a little disappointed by the swimming pool: lots of little flies in it at the evening.
Large parking lot. Location is excellent and you can walk to the Hyannis Line departure (traditional and high-speed), about 15/20 minutes.

Room Tip: I would recommend the "Cotuit", corner room with a very large view on the marina. At the e...
