We first stayed at Anchor Inn some thirty years ago and liked it for its location, cleanliness, friendly proprietors and excellent home baked muffins. And now we can report that it still is the same friendly, well-run inn and the muffins are still delicious. Some of the rooms are bigger than others. The first time we had stayed in a tiny room on the top floor. This time we were surprised by the spacious second floor room we got. Compared to other accomodations, this inn is a very good value. And the owners and staff are really nice. We had brought our bikes with us and had put them in the backyard bike rack. During the night we had a rainstorm. One of the staff had actually gone out and covered our bike seats with a plastic bag. The next morning we had the luxury of dry bike seats.

We've stayed on Nantucket many times before, but this was our first time at the Anchor Inn. The location was great, right in town, but on a quieter side street. History buffs will love the old whaling house, which dates back to the 1700's I believe. Being an older house, hallways, doorways, and rooms seemed on the smaller side. The breakfast room is bright and cheerful and there is a cute side patio also. Breakfast is a bit limited...mixed fruit salad and fresh muffins, which were good, but the 2 flavors never changed in the 3 days we were there.

There are nice amenities for guests: beach towels, small coolers for the beach, coffee and tea available, and a full sized refrigerator stocked with ice and chilled water. Guests are welcome to store leftovers and such in the fridge, which was handy.

Our room was on the 3rd floor (I think the Cyrus). It was a pretty little room with a charming canopy bed, but a little tight for 2 people. My husband is over 6' so we felt like we were always bumping into each other. Although the bed looked pretty, it was squeaky and seemed to sag in the middle. The pillows were super thick, and even though we asked housekeepers to leave flatter ones, they seemed the same thickness. I woke every morning with a stiff neck. The bathroom was good size with toiletries, including makeup remover cloths (always appreciated). Not much shelf space to put things though. The shower was tiny and not a great shower head/waterflow.

Service was good and the owner was very friendly and helpful during check in. She even offered to help us carry our luggage up the steep, narrow stairs!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask about the size of the room and bathroom, especially if you're tall or a larger person. This is an older home and small doorways, hallways, etc.

I know Nantucket pretty well & have stayed a lot of places on the island, but this was the first time for the Anchor Inn. It is a pretty place & I can only attest for our room & the downstairs & outside. The Morning star room is on the 1st floor, not huge, but not small, rather small bathroom (just a shower), but that never bothers me. we paid $175 + tax, located a few blocks from town (Broad St) on Centre St. Breakfast is 7-10 & is cereal, fruit, coffee, muffins, juice, nicely laid out & the breakfast room is cute. Outside is a pretty patio. there is a common sitting room on the first floor. We only stayed 1 night, but it was enjoyable. Only 1 window in bedroom that looked out on the back area, which was not that pretty and then 1 window in bathroom.

I echo everything in the previous review. This is a lovely inn. We stayed in the Tucker room. It has windows on three sides, and we enjoyed the great breezes, and the smell of nearby flowering trees. The bed was comfortable. This inn has a great location, about a block behind the Jared Coffin House. The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I spent two nights here in early May and were very satisfied. Since our room was available, Heather let us check in early, which was fantastic. We stayed in the cheerful Tucker room, which we liked because of its privacy. It even has its own staircase and a small balcony/sitting area with two chairs, nothing fancy but so nice to sit outdoors. The room was bright, clean and nicely decorated and we appreciated the greenery outside of the windows. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a tub (not just a shower). It was very quiet, we didn't hear other guests, just bumped into a few folks at breakfast, which included juice, coffee, tea, fruit and warm muffins. Innkeepers and staff were very friendly. A great find, a great location and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the Tucker room - it is very private and quiet!
