We came here on a sailing trip. The Manager Kara Koziar is excellent and extremely helpful. She provided a lot of useful information and encouragement.The hotel has a courtesy car and is close to the ferry and the public dock.

I really enjoyed the sunset and sunrise views from here, rooms are slightly out dated but over all nice and simple. .y only complaint is the mattress. That mattress made every pressure point hurt and by day two I was so sore it hurt to touch me and my neck was so stiff. I didn't say anything bc I just... More

Great location and very convenient to the ferry terminal. Reasonably clean and great view of the harbor. The shower was difficult, as temperature regulation was bad. Sudden episodes of hot, then cold water. The continental breakfast was muffins, coffee, and orange juice. Not much selection. The staff was super friendly!

Had a recent stay here at The Anchorage Inn in Ocracoke. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Convenient to Cedar Island ferry, marina, bike and golf rentals. Walking distance to great restaurants and shops. A "must" stay for this great island.

We made reservations several months in advance. Pets very welcome! Had a first floor room, chairs on the porch for relaxing and visiting. We did not have a view, but the bay is just across the street. Also you could walk up to the upper floors and get the view from the balcony porch Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast... More

The reception staff were absolutely great and extremely helpful, both in the evening that we arrived and the next morning. They provided a great recommendation for dinner and breakfast at Dajio restaurant, a few minutes walk away. Unfortunately the room had a very musty smell about it, and we got bitten by mosquitoes during the night. It's a shame not... More

I have never stayed a night on Ocracoke so we decided to go down from Kitty Hawk, NC and stay 2 days and see the area. Since we live 200 ft from the ocean seeing the beach was not important, we wanted to experience the town. The Anchorage Inn was perfect and right on Silver Lake with nice views of... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights. The office staff was friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a second floor room with a small kitchenette which was a nice amenity. The beds were comfortable, and the room was clean. No smells. The room telephone did not work, and we reported it, but it was never fixed. In this day of... More

If you are looking for a five star, this is not the place. If your looking for a clean, friendly atmosphere with a wonderful sunset view overlooking Silver Lake this would be the place. The rooms are priced reasonably and the first floor is also pet friendly. It's fun to sit on the balcony and people watch as the walk... More

We decided to stay in Ocracoke for the night instead of getting on the ferry. Anchorage Inn is right by the ferry dock. So my wife gets a room, when we walk in it smells terrible. Very old, not clean, we were not there at the most ten minutes. We went to the office and they said sorry can't do... More
