After reading the mixed reviews about Anchorage Inn hotel from several travel websites one of them – anchorage-inn.vermont-allhotels.com. We knew that our expectations should not be high. So we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. When we arrived at the Anchorage Inn hotel we were met with a friendly and courteous staff from the time my car was valet to the end of my stay. We experienced some of the best food (omelot’s to be exact) We’ve eaten in years. The bed was truly heavenly. The bathrooms were a bit small, but the overall stay was excellent. Anyone who needs to get away for a quick weekend and be near the ocean, this is where you need to go. Private,safe ocean night and day. The front desk is central to everything and right down the hall from the dining room. It had two computers for internet usage which was free. The dining room had an average buffet for breakfast, and was reasonable at 10.00 a person. The rooms while not spacious, were nice, clean and all the appliances worked. We appreciated the fridge and the hair dryer. this is some information I read before my jourmey – hotwire.com/Burlington-Hotels.d601763.Travel-Guide-Hotels. The room was clean and had plenty of outlets to plug in phone chargers and whatnot. The common areas could use some cleaning work. We checked in on Thursday night using this site trivago.com/south-burlington-35061/hotel/anchorage-inn-2397871 and saw some sandy foot prints in the hall by the door leading to the beach, they were still there on Sunday. It could use some updating but it was perfectly fine for us. The best feature by far was the location of Anchorage Inn hotel – literally right on the beach. There are a few shops nearby that you can rents bikes at pretty reasonably and ride on the beach and some forest paths (that was our favorite experience) I would stay there again, the staff was friendly and the view was gorgeous. But don’t take a taxi anywhere they are expensive, the car rental was cheap and right outside the door at nearest airport fast and easy even at 11pm at night. The tourist outdoor shops were right next door which made buying everything from groceries at piggly wiggly to tee shirts and souvenirs really easy esp really good coffee first thing in the morning.
