A cozy, clean motel close to the beach!

Posted Sep 8, 2014
From the time we checked in the staff was very friendly!!! We were very please with our room. Modern decor, very clean, and it has a pool! The bathrooms an parking lot were small but it didn't matter. They have permits for off street parking to accomidate. I loved that we could walk to the beach and not worry about parking!! Would highly recommend. Great rates and great location. Plus the staff makes you feel welcome!

First experience in Seaside Heights

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Beach passes are handed free during the stay.
We have discovered a new location to vacation in New Jersey outside from Wildwood and Atlantic City. This is a very nice, clean, safe place to go. The Anchor Inn motel although basic, is clean and approximately 2.5 blocks to walk to the beach and center of the boardwalk.

Too much money for less

Posted Aug 31, 2014
The best thing I can say the location is outstanding you get free wi-fi and beach passes which was great..overall room was clean but blankets had cigarette holes and a stain I would rather be ignorant to its actual origin. The wash cloth came apart in my hand..had to sit sideways in bathroom to use shower and toilet..parking was minimal so had to take my chances with the street and pray I would not get a ticket. Almost 200 for this room it needed to be up to Sheraton standards

Last minute trip for kids

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Staff very friendly
Cons: Improve the linen quality and the overall cleanliness of the facility
Location: Location was decent, a short two block walk to the boardwalk and beach
The staff was very friendly. The overall condition was ok. The room was not very clean and the linens were disgusting, the towels were paper thin and dirty and stained ( I didn't use them only to wipe the floor, we used our own beach towels of which I brought extra). The bed sheets had small stains and the beds were made up every day and that was the extent of housekeeping. In all fairness to the staff I am usually stay in more expensive better locations, this was a somewhat last minute trip to take two youngsters to the shore so I wasn't expecting perfection. Also in fairness to the staff, I did not complain, but that is my style. If I have to complain about basic cleanliness and decent basics then you have lost me as a potential return customer. There are a lot of choices out there and you need to win me the first time otherwise I don't give you a second.

Great stay!!

Posted Jul 17, 2014
We were quite satisfied with our hotel. The hotel was very clean, the rooms were spotless. The hotel staff was wonderful. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the mattresses are very firm and I prefer a softer mattress. Great distance to the beach and boardwalk. We had no issues. I would definitely stay there again.

Not There Yet

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The beds were too large for the room. they needed larger mirrors, bathroom supplies or maybe a mat.
Location: They were close to water park and maybe 4 blocks from boardwalk.
Unfortunately, the motel lived up to the terrible reputation of some motels. I don't know if they were still rebounding from Hurricane Sandy, but the room seemed unfinished, They were overpriced to have no room housekeeper staffed. Definitely , it made my stay a little less pleasant.

I am not sure which reputation you are referring to but we have gone under major renovation after Sandy. We do housekeeper keep to clean the rooms on daily basis. I do not see any negative comments on room or cleanliness but seems like you were unhappy with the boardwalk. We try to provide excellent service to each our guests. If there are any issues guests brings up we try to fix them right away. We are not like many other hotels they do not give care about there guests once they are checked in. We maintain our property to make sure its clean at all time and guests are enjoying themselves. Sincerely, JD

Pay for convenience

Posted Jun 30, 2014
It's close to beach! Room is small but very clean. Stay depends on neighbors- loud are annoying but you're far away from real bar scene.
