This is a terrible hotel, period. The room reeked of cigarette smoke, so they offered to put in an ozone machine, which smelled even worse. Breakfast is a bad joke. The place just sold for $16 million, and the new owners plan to add a floor and completely renovate. Until they do -- stay anywhere but here!

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2016

This was listed as a budget hotel but my husband and I thought it was better than that. My 93 year old mother lives in Manhasset so each time we visit we stay at the Anchor Inn. We had tried the Adria and the Andrew; the Adria didn't have parking when we arrived late and the Andrew had a club... More

Please don't stay here. The staff are rude. One lady who may live there walks around in her pajamas and hangs out at the front desk. The air conditioners are noisy and turn on and off all night. The room we stayed at we had to walk down an incline to get to and then walk down another 2 steps... More

He listened and gave me a solution for our stay and the price was great.. I didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised... More

Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to review our property. Our deluxe rooms and studio apartment rooms have microwaves in them. For our other rooms, we suggest coming down to the front desk where you can either use the staff microwave or the one we have in the breakfast room. Hope to have you with us again... More

Thank you for your comments. We take all feedback very seriously and implement many good suggestions wherever possible.

This hotel rate was $149 a night. The total bill ended up being $175. There was even a bed tax... The king size bed had two twin size pillows only, bed was slanted, floors were filthy. There was a terrible smell, it was noisy and as my husband was sitting in one of old nasty chairs, the leg fell off... More
