I would like to take a moment to inform others that our family and I had a wonderful stay at the Anchor Motel in the summer of 2009. The location is perfect, near the Caino Pier and the water ride park, as well as the boardwalk. The staff were kind and helpful throughout our stay. The pool and room was...

to the management at 1:30 am about the noise upstairs. In all fairness to the management they were very polite and courteous. The room was very tiny and not very clean. I wouldn't stay there more than one or two nights max. It was the only place available at the time and is within walking distance to the beach/boardwalk. I...

It was fine for a quick stay with friends. All we wanted to do was have a place to sleep and shower while we enjoyed the beach all day, and we got exactly what we asked for. The staff was friendly, we had a problem with our toilet and they came to check it immediatley and moved us to another...

Okay I would deffently only recommend this hotel to those prom going alcholic teenagers that need a "Chill" place to stay. I had four people including me stay at this hotel for 3 days, the bathrooms are so small and I totally agree with the other reviewers. Also I think the pool is a cool idea, but come on.....in the...

This hotel was a bad joke. We had 5 people booked in a room for 4 nights. When we arrived we were put in a (2) double bed room. Where is the 5th person to sleep (FLOOR). We had to go to the front desk to get towels and blankets. They charged us extra ($10) for all persons over 2....

Hi, We are sorry for unpleasent stay at Anchor Motel. After reading your comments about the price only thing I can think is that you probably had booked a weekday special for three nights for $249+tax. Price of $249 is based on two people and each additional person would be $10 extra for the entire stay. You may have asked...

We recently stayed at The Anchor Motel. We enjoyed our stay for a few days as the weather was perfect and we were able to be outside the entire time. As a business traveler I usually rank management by how much they stay out of the way, however the management here are nice people who try to balance running a...

Being a woman who spent her whole summer growing up in Lavallette NJ, I know the potential of most hotels/motels in the area. So, I was surprised and shocked at the Anchor Motel. The staff seemed nice. There were 4 of us staying just one night, 3 adults, and one 13 yr old boy. So, we booked two rooms. Both...

Hi, First of all we are deeply sorry that you had terrible experience at our place. When we hear something like this we do want to rectify the situation ASAP. We understand the bathrooms are bit small and we are in process to fix that. In past months we have taken out the carpet from most rooms. We also have...
