Anchor Inn Motel

“The unit was quite spacious with a very comfy bed. There were very good kitchen facilities in the room and adequate supplies and utensils to use during my stay. The location was right across from the beach a little ways down from the main town area, but everything was within walking distance. The couple managing the Motel were very warm and friendly, and, after along day of travel, that makes a big difference and a strong first impression.”
