“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

A wonderful experience all around! Stayed 3 nights on Veteran's Day weekend. Super friendly staff, beautiful interior design (especially the enclosed porch and the sitting area/library with comfy chairs, a fireplace, board games, books, all day coffee/tea/hot chocolate). Loved the outdoor fireplace! Would definitely recommend The Anchor In to others. Nice location by the harbor and close to many restaurants and gift shops on Main St. Great home base for touring the Cape in all directions. Close to the island ferries and to the Kennedy Memorial. We love this place so much! Can't wait to return!

Stayed here for second time this year on a two week trip to the USA. Fab location. Room overlooked harbour . Great view to wake up to. Staff friendly. Breakfast was great. Lots of choice and nice lounge to sit in. Very well located for Main st Hyannis. Pool is one of the warmest I have swam in. Well done Anchor In ... Hope to be back !

My husband and I had a two day getaway for his Halloween birthday. No candy or trick or treaters for us this year. While on the Cape this summer we passed the Anchor In many times without knowing it. It is nothing special from the street view but surprisingly lovely inside.
The rooms are well appointed, (relatively recently refurbished I would guess), the breakfast is more than ample for a continental breakfast (they did have cold cuts for you meat cravers) with fresh muffins, fruit, yogurt, granola, etc. Coffee and tea all day and lots of cozy, water viewed chairs to sit and read in.
The room we booked was good (jacuzzi in room!) but it was on the lower level and my husband had a yen for a terrace, so Francis was very nice and switched us to a different room that had a terrace. It was supposed to be slightly more money but Francis gave it to us for the same rate -- Thank you Francis.
In addition, the management left a little bottle of champagne and two glasses for us (For my Husband's birthday).
The Cape has great bike paths and that is what we did when we were not being couch potatoes in our hotel room. It was a lovely get a way.

Room Tip: There are parking lots in the back of the hotel between you and the water, so look at the views of e...

A friend and I stayed here in October and were very impressed with both the amenities and the service provided. The gentleman on reception could not have been more helpful and every other member of staff also went out of their way to be pleasant and as helpful as could be. The flower beds along the pathways and around the reception area were beautiful and the pool and lounge areas were well appointed and clean. The books and games provided were also a nice touch.Also the location proved to be perfect for us with walkable restaurants and an easy stroll down to the ferry. The parting gift of bottled water and salt water taffy encapsulates the level of thoughtfulness in the service here.

This HAS to be one of the best hotels (or IN!) that we have ever stayed at. The staff were so nice, the rooms sooooo comfortable and welcoming even with complimentary tea/coffee or hot chocolate etc. Complimentary breakfast is also included. Our room in the east Wing was a deluxe room with balcony or dock as they call it. The views were spectacular down to the bay, sitting on the dock watching the ships go by ( you could start singing songs about it!) was an afternoon must. In the evening the In had a fire pit so guests could sit outside with some heat if required. what was so nice that the In had 4 flagpoles and they flew the country flags of the guests who were from that day. This is an old sailing tradition for ships going into port and it makes you feel that bit more welcome and cared for. No lunch or evening meals are served but there are plenty of places round about. Even although we stayed at the end of the season when a lot of places had shut there were still plenty of choice. f you just wanted basic snacks ( crisps etc or cans of pepsi) then the hotel had a couple of vending machines. Bed linen and towels were changed daily unless you put the card provided on your bed to say not to change things.
This was also superb value for money. The desk staff will also help you with tour bookings or car hire etc. we stayed for 2 nights while we took a trip over to Martha's Vineyard. we would go back in a minute!!!

Room Tip: if you can afford a suite or deluxe room go for it! The West wing rooms get early light on the balco...

This hotel is very well located in the center of Hyannis... rooms were clean, all facing the harbour ... they light up the fire pit every night... breakfast included - cold buffet with a fair choice of delicous selection of fresh food. Lovely closed-in sunny veranda where you can eat your breakfast overlooking the harbour..
Staff was great, friendly and helpful...
cons: room decor is a bit outdated color and patterns from the 90 ; a bit of a moldy odor but otherwise clean
what a great sunday morning waking up at the sound of the sterns and seagull !
we took a day trip to Nantuket using the regular ferry to get there, coming back on the express; very nice village - postcard picturesque!! we did the JFK Trail the next day and walk down the beach - we will return for sure next fall....

Very nice place with friendly staff. Nice location. Left a crib in our room for our baby. Good prices for off season too. Outdoor fire pit was great. Quiet and clean. We would definitely stay there again.
