Reviewed June 17, 2010

My girlfriend and I just returned from our stay at the Anchor Inn. We were so pleased with our trip to ProvinceTown. We were greeted by Steve at the front desk, who was extremely helpful & very friendly. He recommended restaurants and shops for us to try; Squealing Pig & Lobster Pot were some of our favorites.
Our room was located on the 3rd floor with a shared balcony facing commercial street. Also, our room had windows facing the ocean, what a beautiful view.
The bathroom was huge! With an amazing giant tub.
Everything was clean, our room had a mini fridge & also a fire place.
The manager Chris, was more than helpful to assist us with all our needs, he even helped carry my girlfriends bags up to the 3rd floor. He had all the guests names memorized, a very nice personal touch.
Plenty of guest parking on site. & great homemade muffins for breakfast!
Can’t wait to go back again for another visit !

The Anchor Inn sits in the middle of this picturesque village ovelooking the ocean. Our room was straight out of a movie, large, light and airy with windows looking out to the view. All amenities were first class and the servicew was great with help with our washing to restaurant recommendations. We actually ate at the restaurant up the road the Red Inn which was also a part of the Inns company.

Just happened to stay here while visiting some friends in town. I had stayed here many years ago and can definately see why some people have criticized the up-keep of the maintenance, (i.e. needs some painting on the exterior; among some other minor attention to details) but nothing that would influence me to not stay again. The view from my room (which was a lot cleaner than most 4 star hotels that I have stayed in NYC) was SPECTACULAR and mimiced a painting you would see hanging in a gallery window in the East End. Worth every penny!!! And can't wait to go back just to wake up to that bay view that can be admired while laying in bed. Also, one of the best locations of the many Inns and Guesthouses that I've stayed at in P-Town.

I feel compelled to write another review for our recent stay. Many reviews stated that maintenance is not being done and of stained rugs, etc. Our room, suite 122 was spotless, clean and plush. It's the best room I have stayed at so far in ALL my visits to P-Town. The views the the top floor balcony are phenomenal (the views from all the waterfront balconys are great too). We stayed during Columbus Day weekend and it was very chilly and rained one of the days. The fireplace and sitting area was a godsend for us and our friends. Excellent just sitting around the fire with good whine and friends. It was cozy and warm. The staff was excellent as usual. This B&B is located at the perfect spot in town, right in the middle of everything. The front porch is prime for people watching. You'll never find every single thing you want in one single B&B. Anchor Inn is a great compromise though. For example, they could update to flat screen TVs, other B&B's have had this. But Anchor Inn had sparkling clean, spacious bathrooms with jacuzzis. They have comfortable beds and fireplaces. And spectacular views. One review commented on the fact that staff is not present all night. That's actually a great thing. I've stayed at B&B's where the staff watches everything going on almost being babysat. Also where the B&B is actually part of the staff's house and if you have a complaint about whatever, they take it personally because you are insulting their home. So having the line drawn and a little distance between the staff is a good thing. Our suite had a wet bar too. The cost may be high but I am done going on the cheap with some other B&Bs. You get what you pay for. I know I won't be disappointing at Anchor. Please enjoy the pictures we took.

The Anchor Inn has great views in the front and back. The room we always get has a quiet balcony with a great view of the Provincetown Harbor in the back of the house. If we are looking to mingle, we can sit out on the porch in the front of the house. Probably the best spot in town for people watching and mingling with other guests. The Inn is clean and room service is excellent. In the fall when we visit, the fireplace is great in the room and the Jacuzzi tubs are wonderful to just relax. The small wet bar in each room is great for late night cocktails. Beds are comfy, linens are clean and towels are plush. The Anchor Inn is a step up from most of the B&B’s in town. Parking is available here. I celebrate my anniversary here each year. Mark, the manager, called the local florist for me to have fresh chocolate dipped strawberries delivered tot eh room and made reservations for us at the Red Inn (great restaurant) which was great. The location of the Inn is, in my opinion, the perfect spot. Right on Commercial Street in the center of town. We will continue to stay at the Anchor Inn each year we visit P-Town.

We were in P-town for a friends' wedding. We booked the Anchor Inn because of its location and the chance to get a corner room on the top floor with a view of the harbor. That part was the good part. However, the room was run down, bad stained and poorly kept carpet, the bed was wobbly and sqeaked every time we moved in it, and the fireplace wasn't working. According to the inn keeper staff, the firemarshall forbid use of the fireplace at that time of the year, yet we had friends that stayed in other properties, and we ate at restaurants where fireplaces were working. And I specifically asked about the fireplace when I booked the room. Huge disappointment, and the staff were completely non-chalant about it. The place needs some updating and some staff who care if they meet your needs.

This was our third stay at the Anchor Inn; we visit each year in June. We enjoyed our prior stays very much--but not this time. Apparently maintenance is being deferred: the screen door to our deck was broken; several of our deck chairs literally were falling apart (the front desk brushed aside this information and no one ever came to look at them); the shower drained very slowly; the carpet was wine-stained. Another problem was noise in the hallway late at night. We were informed (brusquely) by the manager that a wedding party was staying there. Which is fine, but there is no resident staff on the premises at night to monitor carousing or other problems. We won't stay at the Anchor Inn again.
