Anchor In Hotel
Ranked #1 of 22 Hotels in Hyannis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 September 2006

This hotel is in a great location, next to Hyannis harbour and walking distance to the ferry terminals to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. It is also close (walkable) to Main Street for the shops and restuarants. Rooms are spacious, with small balconies overlooking the small pool and harbour. Buffet breakfast is simple (muffins, bagels and fruit) but fresh. Cheaper than some of the larger chain hotels in Hyannis, this location is much better.

Motel is in a pretty location although you wonder if you have the right place when you drive into the car park overlooking the hospital being built further down the coast. It did look the best place to stay in Hyannis. Very efficiently run and extremely clean. it is a bit of a hike into Main Street but it has very pretty outlook onto marina. Rooms were quite basic and very dark, situated around a small heated pool. Breakfast is good quality although limited to juice coffee bagels and muffins served from a small reception table between only 7-9am. Motel stocks menus for local resturants and we walked to Spankys Clam Shack but found food disappointing. 2 night stay overshadowed by very heavy rain which prevented us from going up into National park.

We arrived on a very warm and sunny day in August and the view from the room was spectacular and fully matched the pictures on the internet and brochure.

The staff were friendly and very helpful, arranging whale watching for us and giving us good advise. Our apartment had two rooms, a main bedroom with good sized bed and a seperate day room with a sofa bed which we used for our daughter.

The only problem with the layout was that the aircon in the main bedroom is immediately above the one side of the bed, making it a little noisy and a little cold, although it is easily adjusted.

We expected the breakfast to be difficult as the buffet is layed out in the foyer of the hotel and in the smallest of space, but the staff are very attentive ( 3 people refilling) and the experience very pleasant. The range and quality of food offered was very good.

My only critisism of the hotel is that other than a vending machine for coke, their appeared to be no facilities at all for obtaining a drink other than at breakfast. Coffee facilities in the room would have been a great improvement.

Hyannis itself one long street with a selection of restaurants etc and within walking distance. The most noteable feature of the main street is the 'Duck tours". A 45 min land and sea trip which in itself is interesting and would be even better if the guide realised that she did not have to talk the WHOLE time.. when you run out of things to say, shut up.. not tell every one and then still try to talk about irrelivant items . One small comment, it is difficult to believe that some of unimpressive buildings really did host the events they inform you and unfortunatelly not every one is a 6 year old that enjoyes shouting "Quack Quack" when requested to do so.

If staying at the Anchor, Tugboats Restaurant is highly recommended for its fresh food, great service and excellent views. It is closer than the high street and so could walk.. but the way in between is not pedestrian friendly so my advis is that you drive
