Historical Traveler Reviews Anchor In Hotel Hyannis
Don't let the exterior fool you
We made reservation from a photo posted on the net and when we pulled up to register, our hearts sunk a little. BUT once inside, we were thrilled. A recent renovation made the interior very welcoming and the staff was friendly and gracious. The guest rooms were recently refurbished and nicely appointed furniture and bath accessories made for a great vacation. It is on the harbor so you can watch the ferries and boats...very nice.
We just had 4 great nights here. Could not find fault with anything, great location, fantastic view from our room, extremely comfortable beds and without a doubt the cleanest room ever. Would highly recommend this hotel.
We stayed here Oktober 12-14. Room and bath: clean,
Stuff: very friendly, Breakfast very good: fresh muffins, cereal, bagels, fruits and a nice seating area.
Location: you can walk to the Hyannis Harbour and it takes a short drive to the mall
Great find, perfect location, a few minutes' walk to anything and everything we wanted to do. Staff very courteous and tended to all our needs. Would recommend highly to anyone wanting to spend some time on Cape Cod.
We had a great room. Room 114. It did not have a harbor view because we booked late--but it had a large living room with TV, pullout coach, table, and 4 chairs, a separate bedroom with TV also, and a separate bathroom. Tha cable channels offered were a premium package. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. The pool was an added bonus with great harbor views. There was plenty of FREE parking, too. The hotel is located about 5 blocks form main street, which is a good distance to be. I would stay here each time I came. It is not one of the million shotty hotel we saw along RT. 28.
A favorite spot for us
The Anchor In offers a wonderful weekend get-a-way with beautiful views, relaxing activities or sightseeing galore. We happened upon this gem five years ago and return as often as we can for a little R & R.
There are a variety of restaurants nearby, a pleasant downtown area and it's a nice spot to call home while experiencing other day trips and excursions while visiting the Cape.
My wife and I spent three days here last week and we were very satisfied. We booked "The Cotuit" room and were surprised by how large the room was. The entire motel was very well maintained and was within easy walking distance of the town center and the ferries to Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard. The front desk went out of their way to recommend several restaurants in the area (our favorites were "Black Cat" and "Tugboats"). Our only complaint if you can call it that was that the continental breakfast ended a little too early (9am). We would definitely consider the Anchor In on our next trip to Hyannis.
A hidden treasure
The Anchor In made my first visit to the Cape memorable. Driving down there and seeing all the motels on the way there I would have to say their motel was very nice on the exteriorcompared to the others. The location is perfect it's the only one on the waterfront giving you a breathtaking view from your balcony. The service was impecable the room was very clean and was even stocked with extra towels which was a nice surprise. The rates include a free continental breakfast which included fresh juices,coffee and delicous muffins and bagels. The most pleasing part of my experience at the Anchor In was there guest service. They made reservations at Anthony's ( a local restaurant)for us and when I mentioned we were celebrating a special birthday for a family member they mentioned to the staff. Needless to say we had a cake waiting for us and also a pianoist which serenaded us with Happy Birthday !
Yes, this motel has no frills, but that's not why I chose it. It is the only hotel on the harbor and the view is fantastic! Also, it is a very short walk to downtown Hyannis. Our room was extremely clean and nicely appointed. The staff very friendly. The only true disappointment was the lack of a coffee maker in the room. In this day and age I thought that was common practice, but will bring my own next time!
Spent the fourth of July weekend at this NO-FRILLS motel. 15 minute walk into town center or a 3 minute drive. The room was tidy, though smelled mildly of mildew. No mildew visible anywhere though. Small pool area was clean as well. Plenty of towels were available upon request.
The front desk was not open all night. Since the maid service forgot to leave us extra toilet paper in the room, it took a bit to find someone who could supply us with toilet paper after 11 pm. Front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. They called to book us a whale watching excursion, gave us directions, and provided us with a discount coupon.
Definitely had a pleasant stay. Would consider staying here again if I couldn't find a charming B&B with character.

Drove south to Plymouth Thursday where the Mayflower took a hundred people from England in 1620. A year later half the people had died but they made a small settlement and managed to rub along with the local tribe of Indians - the Wampanoag. The settlers grew corn and sold it to people up in Maine and caught their own turkeys, raccoons, deer,etc for meat and furs. We visited the Plimoth Plantation where they had set up an Indian encampment and ...

... realize it was so small. You can tour it but because of time we did not. We did learn a lot of history about it when we got to the museum. Along the beach we also saw Plymouth Rock. That was a surprise because it is an unimposing rock. It is surrounded by an open structure. On our way to Burial Hill, we passed through Brewster Gardens. It was very pretty. We also saw the Plymouth Grist Mill. On Burial Hill, the views ...

... so interesting to learn about the compound which we decided to drive to and see if we could get a picture. It was where John came to reflect and make big decisions. He went through a lot of turmoil during his presidency - Cuba, Vietnam and Russia to just name a few. He always came home to Hyannis for peace. The compound is pretty much completely enclosed on three sides and the ocean on the fourth. We did cross ...
