This was our second visit to The Anchorage Inn. Again soon our arrival we were so warmly welcomed at the front desk. Just so friendly and answered all our questions and offered great suggestions for local offerings. This might be a bit older hotel, but always extremely clean! The porches overlooking the harbor are filled with Adirondack chairs, where guests... More

Anchorage Inn is typical of older motels and inns, rooms located off outside walkway. Recommend upper rooms to take advantage of great Marina view. Very convenient to ferry, golf course rentals and walking distance to couple nice places to eat . Rooms were clean and everyone in office very friendly and happy to assist you. Beds comfortable and would stay... More

We arrived in Ocracoke with no reservations or idea of where we were going to be staying but this hotel was practically the first building we saw coming in on the ferry from Cedar Island and driving through the town. This hotel is in an excellent location, within walking distance to food, shops, historical locations, and pretty much everything in... More

The rooms were clean and efficient, loved sitting on the porch and had a view of the marina and the lighthouse. Met some folks that had been coming there for years. Would love to come back and stay more than one night. Staff was helpful and enjoyed that the hotel was pet friendly. The view was spectacular.

If you are looking for a comfortable, clean, friendly, and relaxing place to stay on Ocracoke Island, then you could not go wrong in booking a room (third or fourth floors for best views of the harbor) at the Anchorage. We have been repeat customers for many years and choose the same room every time. Though lacking in frills, the... More

Room was very clean and had the view I was told to expect of Silver Lake. The pool was clean and the staff was most helpful and pleasant during our 3 days there. Muffins, Coffee and Juice are available for breakfast and there is a nice waterfront eatery owned by the Inn for lunch and sunset dining. I will be... More

My husband and I stayed at The Anchorage Inn in early August 2016. It was a great place to stay... clean, comfortable room with lots of counter space in the bathroom!

The hotel is definitely a no frills, clean motel that is literally right next to the marina and ferry. The pool is amazing- its literally on the dock so you have a view of the harbor the whole time you are swimming. The rooms could use an update but it goes with the no frills vibe of the island in...
