“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We stayed at this hotel for the first time in June and we loved it! The location overlooking the harbour is fantastic and it is an easy walk into town or to the ferry terminal if you want to visit Nantucket. Our room was huge with a wrap around balcony overlooking the harbour. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The continental breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice to suit everyone. It was my birthday during our trip and we came back to the room to find a beautiful vase of freshly picked flowers and a bottle of champagne, what a nice touch. We would certainly be more than happy to stay here again on any future trips.

Room Tip: The rooms with the wrap around balconies are worth the extra money.

I just came back from a week in Cape Cod and stayed at Anchor In. This hotel is gorgeous. I had a first floor room with a private deck and a view of the harbor--which was breath taking. The room itself was lovely--clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was very nice. Though there are no hot options, everything is fresh. Each morning there was a lovely woman in the kitchen to greet me as she prepared fresh fruit and replenished the food. You eat your breakfast in a lovely sunroom or the beautiful library. Finally, the staff was amazing. They were friendly, accommodating, and knowledgable. They were able to offer restaurant suggestions, book ferries, give directions, and make activity suggestions. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with a private deck.

This place is very convenient if you want to get away from the city for the weekend. We enjoyed a short break at this hotel and loved every minute we stayed. The rooms are nicely decorated offering everything you need for a short vacation. Lovely view of the marina. I would come back next time I need a break from the city !

We booked here based upon Tripadvisor commentaries and ratings. We picked the property because of its excellent location for our 2-day stay with a day trip on the 2nd day up the Cape. The hotel is perfectly nice, but clearly you are paying for the location, and that was fine with us. Rooms are spacious and our first-floor room had some view of the harbor (but less than we would have on the 2nd floor or rooms directly facing the harbor). Breakfast was standard and adequate. I was surprised at our somewhat brusque handling at check-in, but didn't make much of it.Our main issue happened on the first night when what turned out to be a massive family disturbance occurred in the next room. The disturbance itself was in NO way the fault of the hotel, and they later assured us that this was an extremely unusual occurrence. However, we were concerned that after calling the front desk in the middle of the night, we were not clear on what the hotel's response was and the disturbance persisted for 45 minutes longer. It was hard to get back to sleep afterward and our next day was messed up as we were sleep deprived and missed breakfast. The hotel did in the end reduce each day's rate by 25% in response to my concern, which was appropriate. However, we do feel that based on our interactions with staff including check-in and check-out and of course during the disturbance, that responsiveness could be improved.

Room Tip: 2nd floor balcony or on the ends of the hotel

Thank you for your review. Once again, we sincerely apologize for the disturbance during your first night with us. There was an immediate response and the problem was resolved in a matter of minutes. After dealing with the immediate issue and at what we felt was the appropriate time, we explained the situation to you and others effected, after which time we were certain that you were completely satisfied with our response, corrective action and compensation. We also responded with a follow up email to you after your departure.

We look forward to making your next visit to Cape Cod a more pleasantly memorable one for all of your stay. It would be our pleasure to assist you from check in to check out.

Sincerely
Lisa and Skip Simpson

We stayed here because of the convenience to the ferry for Nantucket. It is a cute motel and certainly a place I would stay again. Chris at the front desk was extremely friendly and entertaining. We enjoyed his personality and I think he made us appreciate the property more. The rooms are good enough. The motel is older but very clean. We enjoyed the private patio area and the fire pit. It was so nice to sit by the fire and enjoy the cool evening while gazing out over the marina.
A continental breakfast is included with your stay. It gets the job done but a warm option would be a great addition. I also think it would be nice to offer breakfast until 10 am, especially on the weekends.

It isn't often that holiday accommodation ticks all the boxes, but this one certainly does. The Motel is set looking over a beautiful little harbour, it has a lovely pool with a decking area and loungers for sunbathing. The bedrooms are well appointed and those facing the harbour have balconies to take in the view. The breakfast is advertised as continental, but there is plenty to choose from, including every type of bagel you can name. There are fresh strawberries, as much juice, coffee and tea you can drink. Granola, cheese, meats, yogurt.... absolutely superb. The staff are all helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The Motel is also very well situated, so you can walk to the restaurants in the area. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: choose a room facing the harbour
