“Friendly staff”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The Anchor in is beautifully located and a fantastic place to stay when visiting Cape Cod.
We stayed here for two nights. Our room was big and bright with two large beds and a nice bacony with a view of the harbour.
All the staff that we met where really nice and helpful. We had to leave really early in the morning and the person responsible for breakfast gave us muffins an coffee to go well before the regularisering breakfast time.
We can highly recommend this hotel

Booked for two nights on tour in New England. Great location and attentive staff. The breakfast while limited and continental style is high quality. But the hotel needs some TLC, rooms are a little tired and certainly need better sound proofing particularly regards running water ! While I realise this is a motel, hotel prices are being charged. Better value exists out there

Dear Valued Guest. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your Complimentary Continental Breakfast. We are sorry to hear that we fell short of your expectations with your guest room. We would have embraced the opportunity to make your stay more comfortable if you had made us aware of any issues during your stay. "tired" is inconsistent with the fact that all of our guest rooms have been completely renovated recently. When looking closely for waterfront lodging in Hyannis and on Cape Cod considering location, quality, service and price point you will find Anchor In second to none. We look forward to making your next visit to Cape Cod a most memorable one. It would be our pleasure to assist you personally.

Sincerely
Lisa and Skip Simpson

This is an older hotel and in a few features it shows but the location and the staff overshadowed that fact.

You wake up to a view of the harbour across the lawn and pool. I was dying to get in the pool but weather and time stopped me!

The reception guy who was on when we arrived was so very helpful, especially when we were telling him about a blown out tyre we had experienced whilst driving here. He told us to report to the rental and how to get there etc. which we did - so he was very helpful.

The breakfast and seating are great - we had a good stay here and would recommend.

My family of 4 recently stayed at the Anchor In and thoroughly enjoyed it. We received a warm welcome and restaurant recommendations upon check-in. We appreciated the selection of restaurant menus in the lobby as well. The entire hotel was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and we felt very much at home.

There was a good breakfast every morning and games available in the library. The pool area is nice as was the fire each night. And my daughter's enjoyed the afternoon cookies! The hotel is within walking distance of the harbour and Main Street, both with a variety of restaurants, and there are a number of great beaches a short drive away.

The attentive staff thought of everything, right down to a travel bag with water bottles and candies when we checked out. Thank you Anchor In, we would highly recommend staying here!

We were at a loss over where to stay in Cape Cod as there is very little to choose from in between high end resorts and low end motels but we definitely made the perfect choice. This was an extremely clean hotel with great service and amenities for a smaller property. They truly pay attention to details here and that extra mile that they go really makes a huge difference. We cannot wait to come back here again.

My husband and I spent two nights here and wish we could have spent a few more. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and sitting by the fire pit in the evenings. Warm cookies in the afternoon were also a treat. Beautiful view of the harbor from our room and common areas. Highly recommended!!

The Anchor In is a gem of a place. From the street is looks nothing special but inside and pool/harbourside it's lovely.
We are arrived after midnight and we received a great welcome.
The complimentary breakfast is all you need before a day exploring.
The fast ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard is a ten minute walk.
We will certainly go back.
One tip take your own wine and beer as there is no bar !!
But they don't charge corkage so you can enjoy your drinks down by the fire pit at night or down by the pool.
Oh and avoid Spanky's restaurant down by the waterfront - poor fast food and ultra busy. Baxters Fish restaurant ( five minute walk) and Naked Oyster ( 15 minute walk) were excellent

Room Tip: The West Barnstable room is perfect for views out to the harbour and has an enormous balcony which g...
