Anchor Motel
Ranked #4 of 39 Hotels in Seaside Heights
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

I stayed August 9th for one night. The room was a great size but the bathroom was so tiny, it felt like an airplane bathroom, the shower was also very small and the water pressure was very low. The room was clean and there was a mini fridge and microwave. We had a problem with the electricity in the room, twice we lost lights in the bathroom and to the air conditioner. When the a/c was on though, it worked very well. The pool is on the smaller side but it was not crowded and we were more concerned with going to the beach anyway. They gave us beach passes and offered to let us use the pool and beach passes after check out. Good location, close to 7-11, about 5 or 6 minute walk to the beach, about the same to karma and bamboo. It was also very quiet for a Saturday night. I would stay here again

Deal Melissa,
I would like to apologize for loosing electricity in the room during your stay. We will look into what may have caused the failure. We are centrally located and everything is walking distance. Once you park your car in the lot you can pretty much walk anywhere in the Seaside Heights. Please call us next time and we will discount your rate.
Sincerely,
JD

Anchor motel was a nice place to stay for a great price. Usually at those prices you can get some VERY sketchy stuff, but not here. The rooms were clean, the staff was extremely accommodating, and the location was good (not very "scenic", but you're there to go to the beach, not sit in the room and look outside!) two blocks or less from the beach, Bobber's restaurant, and the 7-11. If you are going to Seaside Heights for the boardwalk and beach scene, this is a great place to stay.

Dear Guest,
We have not raised our room prices in last 8 years. We have added more free services over the years so our guests are getting most bang for their bucks. We also have done major renovation last year and continue to more improvements each year. In next two years we are going to redo the exterior of the building so it is more ascetically to view. We hope to see you soon.
Sincerely,
JD

Overall, the hotel was clean, comfortable, and close to the beach/boardwalk. (About 2-3 blocks walk.) We only stayed one night, but the staff were friendly and even let us check in very early (around 12 instead of 3), when we had only hoped to be able to leave our car and come back.

The room was not shabby, but could stand some small improvements, such as perhaps a new mattress. For $150, you don't get much luxury, but the price is competitive with similar hotels in the area, so they are not being unfair.

Room Tip: If they'll give you an upstairs room, I would recommend that. The people above us were rather n...

Dear Guest,
We are pleased you like the room and service you received. We are planning to make changes you mentioned in your comments. We have changed many of the mattresses last year and some needs to be changed next year. We always try to put the couples and family on the upstairs rooms so they are not bothered by anyone. Please call us directly next time and we will discount your rate. We hope to see you soon.

at first my friends and I were hesitant while researching motel to stay in at seaside, however, I couldn't be more happy with our stay at the Anchor Motel. From the courteous over the phone reservations, to the immediate emailed confirmation, then the personal introduction to the motel, JD, one of the owners made our stay amazing(as well as the rest of the staff). We were welcomed with open arms, making us feel secure, in that anything we needed was just a phone call away. In addition, the rooms were newly renovated and extremely clean for seaside. The new amenities and onsite pool, free parking, and free beach passes were only some of the highlights to our stay. In addition, the location is perfect. Its right by the police stations, so you don't have to worry about being bothering by any unruly people and its a few mins walk from a convenient store, the water park, the boardwalk/beach and Karma/Bamboo/Aztec...etc. Thank you for making our stay so memorable JD, we appreciate it! We cant wait to come back!

The property is in the process of,being updated and remodeled after Sandy. The room we stayed in was small. There was no lamp near the bed only an over head light. Bathroom was very small. The room was clean but the floor was tile instead of carpet. There is no laundry machines available on sight. (So what to do with your wet suits and towels from the beach? We had to find a laundry mat. ) The owners were friendly and very helpful and the free beach tags included was an added plus. You are close to the board walk and the beach (about a block and a half. )

My family and freinds have stayed at the Anchor Motel many times over the last 8 years.This hotel is located right where you what to be.The 7/11 and water park are around the corner.5 minute walk to the boardwalk.Respectful people,nothing spectacular, just clean and comfortable. I have never been disappointed .When I go to Seaside Heights I really don't spent much time in the room just sleeping or changeing .The negitive reveiws are a little right the rooms and showers stalls are small if you are super big this is not for you. Read the cancellation policy before making reservations they mean what thay say. I think some of the bad reveiws comes from guests that wanted a refund becaue it was a rainy day and wanted out early .I have never seen anything bad or dirty.

Room Tip: try some Minor League Baseball lakewood blue claws just up the road in lakewood god entertaiment
