We stayed here our first time for Holly Folly weekend. The location is great, right on Commercial Street and the waterfront. Plenty of rooms here and they're very nice too. The Inn Keepers, Chris and Michael, are very friendly and accommodating. Chris got us our extra pillows upon arrival and was very helpful with info on what was going on...

The Anchor Inn is the best! We had a great room (122) on the top floor, corner room, with a balcony and expansive water view. The hotel is in a great location and has everything you need. The breakfast is simple but filling (and there are so many great places to eat....) The service was excellent, with some great recommendations...

Our room was on the top floor which for us senior citizens was well worth the climb. Our spacious but cozy room looked out over the ocean from a private deck with chairs high enough that we would see the ocean over the railing. The king-size four-poster bed was firm (we love that) and comfortable. Great sleep with the plush...

Hi Michele F - Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us and for your nice comments, much appreciated!! Sitting out on that balcony on a quiet, sunny day is so relaxing - especially in October. Occasionally, in the off-season, I'll sit out there with the phone and my laptop and take reservations from the balcony. Thanks...

I enjoyed the hands on concierge service delivered by the owners Chris and Michael who are eager for you to enjoy your stay at their beautiful waterfront Inn. Mom Sandy's home cooked breakfast spreads included her signature quiche daily. Quiet location but in the heart of shopping and restaurants. Immaculate and updated rooms.

Very nice rooms at a reasonable rate in mid - October. Ginger, Bo and Molly the dogs always greeted you and Chris was very helpful at check-in. The beach house is situated very close to the action in downtown P - Town. Ask for the best view- 2nd floor and up facing the bay with a balcony!

Just stayed for three days. Staff personable and eager to help. Room right on the water - watched fishing boats coming and going, a cruise ship outside the harbor, and a lighthouse across the water. Bed very comfortable, good lighting, nice heat and glow fireplace and two friendly house doggies.

My wife and I stopped here on a whim and we were not disappointed! Chris and the rest of the staff were very friendly and happy to answer any questions that we had. The location is perfect, as it is right in the heart of P-Town. The room had a beautiful view of the water and made this stop on...

Aside from being the most beautiful guest house in provincetown and simply one of the beautiful buildings, the front porch and the location are as well as good as it gets- the rooms are all traditional new england but very upscale and have beautiful light- the captains suites on the water side are more expensive but worth every cent- the...

The staff was wonderful, breakfast was delicious. The room I got was clean and quaint, but had a nice view of the docks. It was my first time staying in the area and they were more than gracious hosts.
