We were here for a wedding nearby and had three rooms. My husband and I stayed in room 1 and it was wonderful. Nicely appointed, convenient kitchen, comfortable. The gentleman that maintains the grounds does an amazing job - all outdoor furniture is clean, everything outside is immaculate! The beach area and views are amazing. Definitely recommend.

Everything you need. Clean and well kept. Great location. Grounds were awesome. It was nice, quite peaceful and relaxing. We had a little bungalow with a private fenced in back patio and a front deck that looks out on the water (where I had my coffee every morning). The pool was small but kept immaculate and was never crowded.

My wife and I stayed here last year and returned this time with my daughter,son-in-law, and 16 mo grandson. We stayed in room 14 which was perfect since it has 2 separate sleeping areas and sandy areas outside the room where we could allow our grandson to play. Motel is small and cozy with plenty of areas to relax outside....

Although the word "resort" may be a bit exaggerated, Drop Anchor is a motel with spacy comfortable rooms and nice grounds with a pool and a 'beach'. It is not really a beach because you can't swim and there are no waves crashing, but it does have sand and a seaview as well as palm trees. The rates are very...

We so enjoyed our stay at the Drop Anchor Resort. Sitting outside with the view of the ocean and under the Tiki Huts was just what the doctor ordered.
