“Imagery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The beauty alone makes this worthwhile, however the peace and tranquility, especially in the foggy mist makes this stay almost dreamlike! Whether relaxing by the pool, playing crib in the common ares, or relaxing in your splendid room, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Any room is fantastic because they all face toward the pool!

Set on a hillside, from the road it has the approach of a home, but as you enter the hotel opens up before you. Well designed, cosy and elegantly furnished, it was a delight to return to after a days sightseeing. An easy walk into the town centre which had an extensive selection of restaurants. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the enclosed balcony with views over the river, toward the beach and lighthouse on the opposite bank. The breakfast was continental but of the highest quality we had come across. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We booked this hotel for a long weekend a few weekends ago and I can say that this place is just wonderful!!! It's a small family owned place and you can definitely tell...they treat you like family! The view of the Harbor is just spectacular, rooms were very clean and when we checked out they gave us a little care package for the road! They are putting in an outside firepit too! Firepit with a view! What else can you ask for!

We first stayed here about 3 years ago. It really is a wow. The bedroom we found to be spacious, and in really good condition. The deck just outside was fabulous for sitting out and enjoying a glass of wine whilst watching the sunset, and watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour. It was really nice to go up for breakfast every morning with a good selection of cereals, bread, bagels, fruit and yoghurts. I cannot repeat enough how much we enjoyed it. Normally we stay in a major chain, as i hold a loyalty card and so get all sorts of extras, but whenever its Cape Cod, there is now only one place. We have been back a few times now and the quality never varies, to the point that this year we have planned our whole vacation based here.

Room Tip: If you don't mind paying the extra, the massive rooms on the end of both wings are stunning with...

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.
