The reviews are accurate, this place is an absolute gem! Perfect location across from the beach. We traveled with 2 kids and the B&B rooms were great. The family that owns it are kind and attentive, you won't be disappointed.

We have come here for over 20 years since our children were babies. They loved it so much they named it affectionately as "Beach Hotel". For a family, not only is the quality of the hotel outstanding, but the beach and water is beautiful, great restaurants, surrounding views, and gentle surf for the kids to body surf and "boogy board"...

We stay here every summer and love it. The location is a less than 2 minute walk to the beach, the rooms are clean, and easy drive to restaurants, other beaches, and shopping. The bed and breakfast rooms are our favorite as they are bigger and quieter with a fairly roomy deck and common area inside. Owners are always there...

The woman in my family book several rooms together here every fall. Great location, as it is just across the street from Scarborough Beach. Just a short drive, or long walk from Iggy's doughboys, and Aunt Carries. Rooms are always clean. Owners are kind, pleasant, and helpful. We have been staying here every sept/oct for a few years now and...

Wow, just wow! My wife and I like to shoot down to Rhode Island from our home in Massachusetts as often as we can. We usually stay at the Scarborough Beach Hotel just a half a mile down the road or so, but this time we decided to try the Anchor Hotel and we were thrilled!! The family that owns...

We found this tiny motel several years ago and have thought about this place as our private refuge. I hesitated to review this location because of concern that if the secret got out there would be less opportunity for us to stay here. The great majority of reviews about The Anchor Motel are quite accurate. To best describe this place...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights around Memorial Day weekend. The location was perfect as it's directly across the street from Scarborough beach. The people working in the office were very friendly and provided coffee and donuts in the mornings. The room was clean and comfortable with a mini fridge.

The Anchor is a basic family owned motel with friendly staff and clean quiet rooms. What makes it special is it's directly across from the ocean - Scarborough beach. You can't beat this motel for price and location. Being able to walk the beach at night is fantastic and to not have to fight with parking to enjoy a very...

We love this motel! I just booked our 2014 stay which will be our third visit. It is simple, comfortable and very clean. Point Judith Lighthouse, Galilee, Narragansett Pier & Newport are a short drive away. Scarborough Beach is a gem. The sand is clean, people are nice and the waves are perfect for body surfing and boogie boarding. The...
