We loved staying at the Anchor Inn. The room was clean, the balcony great for bird watching or eating breakfast. Nice breakfast area in shack across the lot with outdoor and indoor seating. Restful, quiet, and close to town shops. We will definitely stay here again. 5 stars!

When we arrived for vacation we were surprised to see that the hotel was under major construction. They are adding another building. The manager, Kim, as well as all the other staff was very friendly and helpful in trying to accommodate for the inconvenience of all the construction that was going on. We have been staying here for over ten... More

The location was good and the staff is very nice! It is next to the docks which is very nice. The rooms are great, exactly what we needed. They have free parking and free WIFI and balconies for each room, definitely recommend.

Expect this establishment to not put a hold on your credit card...they charge your credit card for one full night cost months prior to your arrival.

We were totally impressed, clean, comfortable, really nice staff (thank you Kim!) Highly recommend. I liked the location - off the path a bit, but still really close to all that Chincoteague has to offer. Breakfast was yummy. The only drawback totally out of their control was crazy construction at an adjacent hotel, was loud and made parking challenging.

We decided last minute to spend a night in Chincoteague before continuing to the Outer Banks. I found the Anchor Inn on tripadviser and we stopped hoping they had a room available. We almost skipped it when we saw the driveway which is a little rough due to the construction of the new facilities. I am so glad we didn't... More

Staff are very friendly and helpful! There is currently construction going on and pool was removed due to construction, but we came here for the beach and nature. Continental breakfast is on par with other hotels, but view is spectacular! I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Chincoteague!

Let me start by saying that what other reviewers mentioned is true. There is no longer a pool, there is construction next door, the drive in is a mess, etc. This is all due to the construction of the new hotel which will have a pool and tiki bar. With all that being said, it did not affect our stay.... More
