one night at Anchor was good

We had a 2 room, 3 bed configuration and it was perfect. Lots of space, very clean, and quiet. Free parking and beach tags were a huge plus. Right beside the water park, very convenient.

Awesome place right next to the beach.

A great hotel to stay at when you want to experience the seaside heights boardwalk without going far. It's literally 2 blocks away from the center of the boardwalk. The only two things I had to complain about is that one of the beds were damaged and sank in, and some of the sheets had cigarette holes. Otherwise it was very clean, had a microwave and a fridge. Would go again!

Nice Place, Clean, Helpful Staff

Our room was neat and clean. It had a microwave and fridge which was nice. The staff was awesome. They even offered us a spot to park to park a friends car. It is very close to the Seaside attractions yet surprisingly quiet at night. Would definitely recommend.

Toilet to close to wall

My knees were about 2 inches from the wall when I sat on the toilet. Water pressure was not good, no in room phone if you wanted to call the front desk, no alarm clock. If your looking for a no-friils hotel the location was about 2 blocks from the boardwalk and I didn't see any bugs.

Small, but CLEAN, perfect location

Looks like nothing from the outside, typical beach hotel. Small pool, small room, small bathroom, small shower, etc. BUT, unlike most beach hotels with the same look from the outside, the room was clean, the beds are fairly new and comfortable, bathroom was clean, plenty of hot water. Location is perfect: 2 block walk to the boardwalk - right near the pier.

Park's Seafood - upstairs above the Aztec hotel right on the boardwalk. Excellent seafood. They also have a few spots along the boardwalk, ground level, but the menu is limited.

[...]: My new favorite front desk clerk

The only problem was the rain! We arrived late because there was no hurry. We didn't need to get to the beach in the pouring rain. [...] checked me in and just as I was about to get to our room he suggested that we could have a single king sized bed instead of 2 doubles and boy did that make my day! There was no choice during the online reservation process the lack of which made me think we missed it so we started it over again. His offering of the king sized mattress was exactly the thing I needed to turn around our day. [...] topped himself later with the suggestion of the "Crab Claw's Inn" as a good place for seafood. The Anchor Motel is only 2 blocks from Seaside Heights' Casino Pier, 1 block from a 7/11 and right next store to the police headquarters (parking lot adjacent). Checkout was at 10 but they let us keep our car in the lot and our doggie bags from the Crab Claw in their fridge, till 3. It was thunder and lightening when we arrived the day before but absolutely gorgeous when we were to leave so by letting us keep our car & food there those 5 extra hours we got to enjoy (salvage) one day at the beach! Thanks [...] & the rest of the staff of the Anchor Hotel. We're defiantly coming back! Vince Marino & Jenna Columbia

Anchor (bad idea) Hotel

Our knees hit the wall when sitting on the toilet! We could hear blaring Latin Music all night long from the couples at the pool. There was also foul language shouted. There was a sign outside the front desk area that said any booking and you receive 100 ride tickets but we were told since we booked on line we weren't entitled to the tickets.

Not Bad

Not a bad place to stay. I got charged extra for the children when I got there. At the time of reservation there was no place to indicate to them that I was traveling with children. The Bathroom is a bit to small. But otherwise is near everything and walking distance to entertainments.
