The Anchor motel was clean but very basic. The towels needed replacing and the wall could use some pictures or color.

My husband and I stayed in the Anchor Motel last weekend and found it to be very clean, easy to find, right across the street from the beach, and reasonably priced. We were also pleasently surprised to find that it is owned and run by a very friendly couple. *husband and wife*

We stayed at the Anchor Aug 8th, 2003 and were very satisfied. This is a "standard" motel but very clean and the staff very friendly. There is a restaurant and Bar in the rear and of course the beach directly across the street. It is the kind of motel that still gives those tiny little soaps and tiny towels 2small bath towels, 2 facecloths, 2 hand towels. Make sure you bring your own towels for the beach. The beach is clean and beautiful and the water much warmer than here in NH. We think you would enjoy this small motel.

Last year, my husband and I wanted to get away on a Sunday afternoon.
We drove to Naragansett and saw this cute old fashion motel, near the beach, with a restaurant behind it. My husband was delighted. We could stay in one place and do so many great things without having to drive everywhere.Aview of the water, walk to the beach, stroll the boardwalk in the evening, relax in a nice clean room.What more could we ask for?
We just came back from there this year and once again had a great time.
It is our little getaway by the sea. We can' t wait to go back . I'm not waiting for next year either!

I enjoy staying at the Anchor Motel because of its wonderful location. It is so refreshing to be so close to the beautiful ocean. At the Anchor you will find a small but very clean place to stay.
