The Anchor Inn Boutique Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2013

A great place in a great location. Breakfast on Saturday was phenomenal. Sorry we had to miss Sunday's breakfast due to the need for an early exit Sunday morning. Got to see the various rooms first hand. Can't wait to try them all on return visits. Joey (owner) goes above & beyond for her guests.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be great choices. All but one had private baths, but would not hesitate at all...

My husband and I decided to stay at a B&B for the first time and we were overjoyed with our choice at The Anchor Inn. The place was very clean and the sister of the owner was very nice and accomodating. The location was perfect being right outside the main "party" area but quiet enough to relax and enjoy. We stayed on a weekday so it was disappointing that we didn't get a full hot breakfast like the weekenders but the food was delicious nonetheless. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: The Garden Room is smaller but you get a private balcony which is a rather good size.

The Inn was clean and quiet. The owner was very helpful in recommending sites and providing beach towels, which we had forgotten. The only issue was that our room was over the kitchen and the noise woke us early than we would have preferred.

Thanks for staying with us and I am sorry about waking you with our noise. We now have a reminder sign in the kithchen that says "Shhh! Guests may be sleeping." In all the years that I have been doing this, no one ever said anything about the noise. Makes me wonder if there weren't other guests that we awoke with noise rather than the smell of fresh coffee. Thanks for being candid!

We found the Anchor Inn B&B to be perfect! 1/2 a block from all the main attractions, yet a nice peaceful quiet place to sleep. We rented a golf cart for $60 as soon as we got on the Ferry and drove 2 blocks or so to The Anchor. We were early so we asked if we could drop off our bags and Sue said "You're room is actually ready" so we were able to check in, freshen up and go see the island. Room and bed were very comfortable and clean with private bathroom/shower. No TV in the stateroom, but who goes to Put-n-Bay to watch TV. Coffee, Toast, juice and bagels in the AM..enough to get you going. Sue seemed very accomodating and easy going. I would stay there again..epecially after walking by some of the other places. We made the right choice with the Anchor.

We stayed here last year and had a great time. This year, no full breakfast was served as promised on web site. The owner`s sister made some breakfast for some guests but not for others. Even she said, I never cook full breakfast on weekends. We will never go back.

This shouldn't have happened to you and I am so very sorry. I remember your previous visit, and things seemed to go very well. This year the unexpected happened, and my sister came to help me during my hospitalization and recovery. She is definitely not an innkeeper, but I can't totally blame her. She had no training, no guidelines and no real idea as to what to do. But I am forever grateful that she was willing to help me. It wasn't ideal but the alternative was to shut down the B & B. I am glad we had a chance to talk about this, and I appreciate your candidness and willingness to work with me. I do hope you give us another try.

My daughter and I had a 2 day get-away and stayed at the Anchor Inn in the Garden Rm. We adored the quaint and beachy-island decor of the Inn, and the gardens and gazebo were so pretty. During the week is a continental breakfast and it was more of a breakfast than we expected. They had 2 bikes for use and 2 other guests got to them first so Sue called another Inn and they had bikes for us to use, so that was so nice of her to do. All the rooms were full, yet we couldn't even hear any noise. Only drawback is the shower in our room is tiny, but I think the other ones are bigger. Overall, pretty surroundings, comfortable, clean, very nice stay.

Thank you for choosing the Anchor Inn. We are always happy when our guests are happy. (Someday I hope to remodel that bathroom and put in something larger!)

Nice location. Close enough to restaurants and bars but still quiet. Nice room and good breakfast. Ask them about info to reserve a golf cart at the shop around the corner. I also liked the off-street parking, since we drove from the ferry.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Anchor Boutique Hotel is a quirky, one-of-a-kind hotel, with light-hearted, mildly rebellious room details and a designer décor. With only 9 guest rooms we are small and intimate in size but we express our singularity with our quirky touches and winsome features. We are independent, eccentric with a sense of humor, and all for the surprise and delight of our guests. The 'Anchor' is a luxury hotel. Intentionally not stuffy, we stand out from the crowd because we challenge the common 'party island' beliefs. Our guests get to enjoy a quiet, classy and over-the-top place to stay that's close to everything. You won't find a party hotel at this location. There are no crowds here, no loud music, no slamming doors, and no noisy hallways. We pride ourselves on providing a quiet, secure, residential location without the party - the kind of place where you go to enjoy a nap, a good book, the company of friends, drinks on the patio and the beauty of an island sunset. Our casually elegant rooms are the sweet spot of the hotel. Each guest room or suite has been thoughtfully designed with handpicked elements and furnishings, a touch of whimsy and all the comforts of home. Our guest rooms are appointed with the finest bed linens on a super plush but firm king bed, and four pillows of your choice (feather, soft, firm, or foam.) Your room is complete with french doors leading to your own private balcony to enjoy those afternoon cocktails or reading a book. You control the A/C and heat to keep you at the perfect temperature and each room has a full wrap of insulation, creating a quiet sleeping space. Extra fans are located in the closets if you prefer 'white noise.' Generous in size, our well equipped rooms include a refrigerator with cold bottled water, a pod coffee and tea maker, a large digital TV, a plush chair for relaxing and reading, robes, slippers, beach towels, and all the other necessities including an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, and extra blankets. An iPhone/iPod dock and jack are available so you can hear your own music. Safes are in the room to keep your valuables, well......safe! The en-suite bathrooms feature an oversized rain-head shower, plush towels, and several full lines of luxury amenities and toiletries. We have lighted mirrors, towel warmers and a clothes line for drying swimsuits and delicates. Toiletries include artisan soaps, shower gels, shampoo and conditioners. Amenities include sunscreen, bug spray and laundry spot removers for those 'oopsy daisy' moments that invariably happen while on vacation. Checking in or out, it's never been so easy or effortless. Our professional front desk personnel will make it quick! Drop your bags in the lift, and they will arrive at your room before you do. Wanting to store a bag or two before checking in or leaving the island? Our locked storage and baggage ID system will make your bags safe and secure. Your security is important to us, and we take it seriously. Exterior doors are locked at 6pm until 10am to eliminate un-registered guests. You will be given a code upon check in so that you may access the hotel. The hotel has a built in 24 hour monitoring system in place to keep an eye out for your safety. A full, hot breakfast is available and served buffet style. Menus change daily. A partial list of our breakfast items may include eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, baked goods, meat and cheese trays, fruit, juices, freshly ground and brewed coffee and an assortment of teas. Breakfast is available from 8:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. A breakfast in bed option is available (as an add on item). Our staff is friendly, fun and always professional. We say hello, pay attention to the details, and will resolve any guest issues with prompt attention. Management and the owners will go out of their way to help you enjoy your stay. Let us give you a warm WELCOME to Put-in-Bay's boutique hotel! ... more   less
