The owner's of Anchor Inn have truly put a lot of thought and consideration revolving around a guest's needs. We stayed in the Captain Morgan suite, located next to the main building. Our suite was the upper half of the house and it was FABULOUS! The basics you may be concerned about: the whole suite is large and spacious. The... More

Bedding is very comfortable and the living areas... More

My husband and I spent a week at The Anchor Inn By The Sea for our honeymoon. We stayed in the Orca suite. It was very clean and private. The deck was nice (we bbq'd a few times) and the views were exceptional! It was really nice to go back to our little suite and make dinner (saved a lot... More

I can not recommend the Anchor Inn by the Sea highly enough. Rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated and so nice to be able to cook a few meals. We had the Aleksandra's Seaside Suite with a kitchenette, but it was sufficient for cooking with a two burner cooktop, microwave, grill on the deck and full refrigerator/freezer. Do your self a...

I stayed for five nights in August, 2015. My suite was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. The marine views were unsurpassed. You can actually see Dixon Entrance, i.e., the Pacific Ocean from the property. It is very peaceful. Mary is an excellent host and obviously applies an exacting standard to her accommodations. Five stars are not enough for this... More

My husband and I stayed in the Orca Suite from July 3-11, 2015. What an unforgettable experience! The views from the private deck were so incredible! I could have slept out on the porch. The suite was very clean and well appointed; everything from enough towels to last for the week plus wine glasses (important!), silverware, spices, and more. I... More

Anchor Inn by the Sea was fantastic - stunning views, great location and all the comforts of home. Loved the covered porch to relax and observe nature. Very peaceful and quiet here. Mary is a great hostess. We loved our suite and were even lucky enough to see a bear in the hills across the street and a humpback whale... More

The BEST lodgings available in all of Ketchikan. Set right on the shores of the Tongass Narrows you can watch whales and seals swim by just outside your window. We lived in Ketchikan for 3 years can say that this is the best lodgings, not just in Ketchikan, but anywhere. The apartments are beautifully decorated, immaculate, and generously stocked with...

Our first stay was the Admiral's Suite. This year there was only me and my husband so we were in the Aleksandra's Suite. All are wonderful!... More
