We stayed in the Bed and Breakfast section of the Anchor Motel last week. The hotel is located directly across the street from the beach. The hotel is family run, and over the course of our visit we interacted with many members of the family. Each and every one of them was friendly and helpful. The Bed and Breakfast rooms... More

The owner is wonderful! The location is wonderful! The room was super clean and neat! I normally stay in upscale hotels. I booked this property as my trip was last minute so this was the only option available. I was worried as this was a motel but after my experience, I would say there again.

We're New Yorkers, so we wanted a quaint beach getaway, that didn't cost a million dollars and take 7 hours to get to. The Anchor Inn was perfect! We literally rolled out of bed in the morning and went to the beach! And Scarborough beach is totally mellow,much more relaxed than the Cape or the Hamptons. We had a great... More

We've been coming to the Anchor for 5 years in a row. The location to the beach is perfect! We can run to the room to use the bathroom right from the beach. It's closer than the beach restrooms. Motel keepers are very nice. Rooms are very clean and have recently been updated. If anything negative, the soap and shampoo... More

Very nice, family owned motel. Located right across the street from beautiful Scarborough Beach. Affordable and comfortable. We have visited multiple years. If you are not looking for anything upscale, you will be satisfied here.

I have stayed at this place before and while location is great, I really wish they accept dogs at this property (during the summer months). My husband likes this place and I would too but they're not pet friendly as others around the area. Last time I visited a friend who was staying at the Bed & Breakfast (I recommended... More

We have breakfast at many places esp Brewed Awakenings or... More

I highly recommend this motel. It is popular with adults and families. Cannot beat the location and convenience of having the beach across the street. It is always impecably neat and clean. And the staff is always available and friendly. The rooms have undergone recent updates which are very nice - but I loved the old rooms just the way... More

This was our second time at the Anchor motel and we will definitely return! This year we stayed in a B&B room which gave our family of four (2 teenagers) a bit more room and privacy. We also enjoyed having a common room and porch. The room was very clean, beds comfortable and having a refrigerator is convenient. The best... More
