Not what I expected

Pros: The free parking.
Cons: The smell.
Location: Lots of restaurants.
Initially, the idea was to find a hotel that would accommodate me, my husband, and my 3 children but to my surprise all I found was a Inn that smells like mold, does not have enough room for 2 adults and 3 children, and judging from the price I paid for the room you would expect so much more. Do not waste your $.

nice place that is very close to restaurants

Pros: easy access to transportation and ordering in food
Cons: Television reception was bad in room #3. The free breakfast could include some fresh fruit and hard boiled eggs,
having lived in this area for over 40 years we were aware of the great location near restaurants and transportation. When we first check in we were given a Smoking room in error. When we notified the desk after walking into the room they changed our room and gave us a non smoking room.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: need dusting, mattresses need to be checked
I had an overnite stay which was fine. My only complaint is that the fitted bed sheet came off and exposed the matress and it was really stained and I feel mattresses with staines of that porportion should be replaced. No guest should see anything that looks that bad. Over all the stay was fine, that just needs some serious attention.

This hotel does not feel like a hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
The hotel turned off heater during the day to save money. We had to call them and complain every day in order for to heater to turn back on. You won't feel like living in a hotel. This is more like a rental for one bedroom/studio appt. The carpet is not clean and the furnitures are old. Night shift staff service is bad. I asked for an extra pillow and he told me that they don't have any becuase all of the rooms are occupied. Meanwhile, the parking lot was literally empty. The heater was also broken for a night. They didn't have people come to fix until the next morning.

Thank you for your review. The items that are valid have already been corrected. Those which are clearly not accurate such as turning off of heat at night can't be responded to. Sorry.

Fair deal for price you pay

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy, Poor breakfast
Anchor Inn is located in NY. 45 min. away from Manhattan main district. Room and other facilities are poor. Bed seem dirty, washroom was small and rather clamped. The hall way is full of fungus smell from the aged carpets. If you need somewhere to stay for cheap price, I'd say it's a fair deal but I wouldn't want to stay more than 1 night here.

Very Clean rooms and very helpful staff

Room was very clean, bed very comfortable, 1st time in New York front desk extremely helpful with maps, subways, taxi. Both evening front desk and morning front desk helpful. room service was right on top of things. LIRR only 4 blocks away easy to find restaurants close by would stay agin in a heartbeat. We went out in the evenings and came back from Manhatten 10pm area okay to walk around. lots of people walking breakfast in morning had hot coffee and mostly breads

Nice clean hotel good location

I have stayed at the Anchor several times. I think the staff is nice and helpful, the rooms are clean and have good amenities. They gave me a free deluxe room upgrade to see the other rooms types and wow, the deluxe rooms are sweet. Black stone counter, microwave, big lcd Tv and a jacuzzi (also have pillow top mattress). It was a nice treat, I might even splurge next time and pay for the deluxe if they dont give me the free upgrade.
