I am not one to typically write reviews. But there were something I had a problem with here. While these may not be deal breakers for everyone, a few things stood out to me based on the price you pay. First the oven didn’t work. This was supposed to be a fully working kitchen and we planned to cook but were unable to. Second I know Pacifica is a cool temp place but maybe have a fan available. The place was very stuffy and I opened windows but without screens bugs and started to trickle in. I’m sure most would be fine with this but a fan as an option would be nice. Third, the hall closet had a shelf at one point but looked to be broken and sitting on the floor along with everything else inside the closet including the iron. Also, and not a deal breaker, but the TV in the living room was mounted insanely high, there’s no reason for it to even be there if it’s going to be so high. And one more thing, but when I pay this much for a room a little welcoming pack would be nice, maybe a bottle water, or something, just as an added touch. We travel a lot so for me I probably wouldn’t stay here again.

We stayed at the Anchor Inn in Pacifica just over a year ago; scheduled for five days. On paper, it all sounded good: newly built, separate 'cottages' close to town. This is our experience: we left after 3 days because: The floors are cement; radiant heat in the bathroom only. No screens on the windows, so you can't open any window and let fresh air in without bugs. The TV in living room is mounted on the ceiling; you have to lean extremely far back on the sofa to view it, cranking your neck. Sow bugs came in and were crawling around on the cement floor. The stools at the kitchen counter had no back support and were uncomfortable. At 2:00 am, a large party of drunk young folks were yelling, rolling around on their driveway and making a huge ruckus next door. The cottages are separated by about 20 ft. I went out and asked them to quiet down; they said they would, they didn't. Next door is a large commercial yard with many large trucks; a generator in the yard made a continuous loud noise all night long, without stopping; beeping back-up and lights; very noisy, day and night. If you are a person who enjoys peace and quiet, I say avoid this place. We left early and were told by management (off-site) that they would possibly refund the days we lost (at $600.00 per night) but of course we never heard from them again. I hope this info forewarns others as to the actual situation of this 'new' cottage. Yes, it is close to town and also has a well-equipped kitchen, but that is as far as the amenities go. Comfortable it is not, unless you are a 21-year old with friends looking for a party house.

My husband and I loved Anchor Inn. It’s clean and modern. The Coastal Cottage is the one at the top of the drive with a terrific view. It also has a heated bathroom floor, rain shower and cute tiny appliances with a quick hot water heater. The staff was on it with what we needed. We enjoyed a short walk to the beach and shops. There is light coming in at night so if you’re sensitive,bring your sleep mask. Also the bed was squeaky. It woke us up a few times the first night but we got used to that.

The pictures and reviews (not sure if authentic) online are a great advertisement, but the reviews didn’t match our experience or expectations. It’s advertised as a 5 minute walk. This inn is on a steep hill which requires a hike down driveway, a long walk across a field, up a tall staircase and then down a staircase. If you are physically in shape, you could do it jogging in 10 minutes. The inside is aesthetically pleasing. The floor is concrete without carpets, so it has an echo, don’t bring little ones that could fall or elderly that are unstable. There are no screens on the windows, so to cool down, open the windows and get cozy with the mosquitoes and loud noises (I’ll explain more in the latter) . It says it has AC, but really only has a heater. The bed is a queen size bed and is hard as a rock and the room doesn’t have a closet. The TV in the front room is mounted so high and is so close to the couch, my neck hurts from having to tilt my head back to see it. The front room is great during the day with light, but has no shades or way to block light on the top windows or the door that’s frosted glass. The curtains in the bedroom have gaps that let light in and again, no screens or way to prevent a toddler from falling out. If you need accommodations physically, like the ability to get down and up the hill, there aren’t any and you will not be able to get a refund, so please know this is not ADA accessible. (There is one unit that is, but it’s close to the road and was unavailable..) *** It is loud and is located on the same property as the construction company with shared road access and next to a catering company. You will hear trucks backing up and their beeping noises, not just at 5am, but throughout the night as well. It was louder than my toddler’s sound machine which was turned way up. It’s aesthetically pleasing, but the least bit comfortable. You would expect the accommodations to meet the price and 4-star rating.

The Anchor Inn Woods Suite is an amazing "tiny house" to stay in that I kinda want to keep it my secret, but alas I am sharing so others can share in the joy. Minimalist design but super comfy, SUPER CLEAN feeling and well kept, convenient but quiet. Ella is also easy and wonderful to deal with and her care comes through once you arrive at the Anchor Inn. It really feels like "home" so I was sad to leave. I would love to come back here again and again. LOCATION: Just around the corner from the main road. Less than 5 minute walk to the nearby strip mall with easy access to the beach. Great restaurants and amazing coffee shop (Soul Grind yum!) on the walk to the beach or even across/up the street. Also easy drive down to Half Moon Bay if you choose to indulge in Sam's Chowder House... SPACE: separate bedroom (queen bed, a little soft) with door, kitchen with bar stools (kitchen was stocked with dining and dishwashing stuff and I think some basic spices), living room with comfy seating and coffee table, balcony (no outdoor furniture). Super clean hard floors with rugs in different spots to warm up the place. Finishes are beautiful and very new feeling. It might feel a little tight with 4 people but I can see how you really can sleep 4 fairly comfortably if you wanted to (2 in the queen bed and 2 on the pullout couch) PARKING: drive up the hill right up next to your front door (uncovered); each tiny house has a spot for a car right next to its front door. Once you park, you don't really need to drive if you're just hanging around town. VIEW: the top house has a view of the water but the Woods Suite (second from the bottom) does not - it looks out at the park across the street but private enough because it's the second house up the hill. The first house has windows right to the sidewalk so might be less private but it's still only fronting the side road (e.g., not Route 1) OTHER: no lobby, no check-in (electronic coded locks), no shared space/air with anyone else - it is literally a standalone house! It's listed on a variety of sites but you can go direct to them and it's super easy
