Very clean, new carpet, cozy room. Directly across from Scarborough State Beach! No musty damp smell at all either. Vaulted ceiling adds space to a smaller room. Small sink area outside bathroom - would be great if that was a bit bigger. Close to stores, gas, restaurants. No frills but a great little spot for beach lovers. I will absolutely...

In the winter months they close the regular motel, and they have a couple rooms in their own home furnished like hotel rooms. Very nice man. Brought us muffins and coffee in the morning. You could see the ocean from his front porch. Would defiantly stay here again.

We stayed at the Anchor while in Narragansett for a family wedding. Very friendly and helpful owners-they even loaned me an umbrella when it looked like rain for the wedding! Rooms were very clean and comfortable and location is great. We had breathtaking sunrises every morning from our room and porch. I hope we can get back again.

Right place in the right spot, in the middle of everything. Across from the beach. Very clean and comfortable room. Lots of cable channels. I'm sure it must be perfect in the summer. Good value for the price.

Making the reservation I knew this place would be great! The young lady on the other end of the line was so kind and polite! You just can't get good customer service anymore or people ( especially younger folk ) that know how to speak to anyone. Very clean! And cannot wait to go back! Perfect spot across from beach....

This was a nice little place to stay in on our way to Boston. The beach was beautiful and right across the street. Kids had a great time just walking and playing in the sand, even though it was October.

We took a chance on staying at a motel because of the location, the price and the great reviews. It was as great as we had hoped it would be. A family owns and runs it and take great care with every detail. Would love to stay there again. The motel is just across the street from the Scarborough State...

The Anchor Motel, located across from the ocean in Narragansett, RI, is a gem. Now celebrating their 20th year in business, this family owned and operated motel is a keeper. This one story motel has parking conveniently located right outside of your room. You are greeted by friendly, helpful staff and complimentary coffee/donuts in the morning. The rooms are very...
