My wife and I stayed at the Anchorage Motel for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had an upstairs room overlooking the pool with the beach and bay forming an idyllic backdrop. Room was very spacious with a well equipped kitchenette, huge bathroom, comfortable king bed and everything was spotlessly clean. The motel is conveniently located at the end of the waterfront road approaching from the south, far enough away from the main part of town for peace and quietness but not too far as was an easy walk to the shops, ferry wharves, restaurants and other amenities. We enjoyed the ambience of the place downing a few gasses of wine in the balcony with a couple of other friendly travellers staying in the next door rooms. The road out front can be a bit noisy in the earlier parts of the evening, however, things quieten down before it gets too late and you can get a good nights sleep. The view out over the bay in the mornings is outstanding, especially when the cruise ships are in. Two ships were in the weekend we stayed. Mine host, Aileen, is a lovely lady. Made us very welcome on arrival and was very helpful with suggestions for activities, bookings etc. Overall, a great little motel in a great spot and at an affordable rate.
