We recently stayed at this hotel for the Belmont Stakes. We had a Studio King and while originally wanting a non-smoking,we were provided a smoking room. Which was actually very clean and no smoky smell at all. We were ok with taking the room as it was ready early. Smoke really bothers me but you could not even tell this...

We appreciate your honesty in your review. Sorry that we didn't have a non-smoking room available for your requested room type at check in. Most of our rooms are non-smoking but we still do allow smoking in a handful of rooms. In the rare event that a specific request is not possible, we do try to go the extra mile...

I really liked this hotel. The men at the front desk were really friendly and helpful. It had a garage under the hotel, which was really convenient during the snow storm we drove into. The rooms are really nice, clean, and they offer great cable. The heat in the room was not controllable so we were really hot (I know,...

We had a very pleasant experience during our 5 night stay at the Anchor Inn during the New Year's Eve holiday. The desk attendant, Jarrod, made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived. He had a wonderful attitude/personality and was most helpful throughout our entire visit. The hotel is in close walking distance to many restaurants, stores, and the...

This is an OK hotel in a central location with lots of shopping and restaurants within a few blocks. The room was comfortable but there was not way to control the heat so it was a little warm for us. Also, the breakfast was pretty spartan with very little choice. Luckily there was a Starbucks across the street.

We had a very nice time in this hotel for an overnight stay. The location is excellent, with a Starbucks across the street and a cupcake place and stores nearby.
