“Great place for Budget minded Travelers.”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

I've been all around the world and I always manage to stay in places like this one.
Clean, affordable and very friendly staff.
They also offer cable with ESPN and a few of the big American cable networks (HBO, Showtime etc)

You are less than a 2 minute drive from the beach or best casino in Antigua.
Nikki and the front desk staff are amazing!

Will visit again!

So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Anchorage Inn! We look forward to welcoming you back!! As the newly installed Manager, I am very proud of the service offered by our cheerful and dedicated staff! The new restaurant has introduced some very tasy and affordable new dishes for lunch and dinner, very much in tune with our informal hotel. I think we are the best value accomodation in the Dickenson Bay area now!

We felt sorry for Louise, who had been left to welcome us to the Anchorage Inn, where we were scheduled to stay 20 nights. She tried to make the best of the dire facilities. The rooms are dingy, grubby with broken tiles and taps hanging off the walls. The cooking facilities are rusty and inadequate. A/C units sit on balconies in rusty, dirty puddles, with the effluent running down the outside walls. The pool would have been dangerous to use - the tiles were either broken or missing and the water supply to the pool was coming through a dirty broken inlet. With only 2 opened and half empty bottles of wine on offer and a broken corkscrew to open the one and only unopened bottle of wine that Louise could find, we made our decision very quickly to leave immediately. The depressing story has however a happy end - we were rescued by wonderful Barry Oliver of Barry's Tours who took us to Villas at Sunset Lane - from hell to heaven in a couple of hundred yards (please read our separate review of Villas at Sunset Lane)

Room Tip: There is isn't one here - apparently we were shown the best room.

I am so sorry you did not like your first impression of the Anchorage Inn, but happy you enjoyed the Villas at Sunset Lane. There is always the right place to stay in Antigua for everyone. The hotel was full at the time, and the other guests were happy with their rooms, and we have a comprehensive program for maintenance. The location is great - five minutes from Dickenson Bay, and ten minutes from St John's city.

I stayed for 1 night on my way home from BVI's, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the accomodation clean and comfortable. It was very quiet so the dining room was only open for breakfast, which was very good. There is a very good supermarket just 5 mins walk away.

We spent our whole summer vacation here. Got a great deal, and couldnt say no. We were accommodated in a small room, but at least it was clean. The room had a small kitchenette with a stove, sink and a fridge, but this was not connected, just standing there taking up space. Without anywhere to cook, we wanted to check out the restaurant the hotel promotes itself with, only to find it was closed almost every day (even the reception was surprised it was closed). We are familiar with the culture of Antigua, so we know how things work. However, we were disappointed that the only thing they could offer for dinner, was to tale a walk to First Choice (the grocery store).
The staff was friendly enough, and did their best in operating the hotel. The product was just not good enough, when we requested a few simple things (I was told to go look for the room attendent when we didnt receive a refill of toiletpaper after the weekly cleaning of the room, and they forgot to give our key to the security when the reception closed in the evening, so I had to wait for 40minutes for the receptionist to come back to work to find our key). But no matter how many obstacles we met, we still love the island and the people there!!

Room Tip: The rooms in the second appears to be bigger than in the first floor

As the new incoming manager, I can reassure you that our rooms have been closely inspected and everything is now connected and working without a problem. We offer many ammenities in our rooms, which make them some of the best value accomodation in the Dickenson Bay area. Our staff are receiving ongoing training and with their happy and helpful dispositions are giving great service these days. We hope to see you again one day!

We just finished our third trip to Antigua, staying, as always, at the Anchorage Inn -- our home away from home. Our group of college students stayed there for 10 days, enjoying the traditional breakfasts, relaxing pool, and the extremely pleasant staff. The staff there treat us like family, and they are very accommodating to our single, double and triple bedroom needs.Our trip next year is already in the planning stages, and we are certainly headed back to the Anchorage Inn.

While traveling to Antigua for my sister's wedding, we decided to arrive a day early and unable to stay at the resort until the next day. Anchorage Inn was just up the road from the resort and just up the road from downtown St. John's. The room had air condition, and US tv stations, which was impressive. I would stay here again, and recommend others as well.

The hotel is quietly situated just outside St Johns and a 10 minute walk away from the beautiful Dickenson beach. Our studio room was not as well equipped as some we have stayed in - only cups and spoons provided with the fridge and microwave but the restaurant provided plates and cutlery. Also no hairdryer - but again one loaned from reception. The hotel is very calm and peacekeeping and if you prefer to be a little independant and away from the hustle and bustle it is ideal. The staff are absolutely wonderful and cannot be faulted. Fernando provides a little shuttle bus to take you to the beach but do also use the local buses - great value and a nice way to meet the locals. A huge supermarket just a few minutes walk away. Many thanks to all the lovely staff who
made our 2 week stay a very happy one- nothing was too much trouble and we felt we had made friends at the Anchoridge

We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation with us! Come back any time to see all your friends here again!! You are right - the location of Anchorage Inn is a great base to explore Antigua from, or visit on a business trip. We have a new restaurant now tempting our guests with delicious freshly produced dishes with local ingredients, and are now designing a new web site. And the weather right now is absolutely beautiful!! Always improving!!
