The Historic Anchor Inn is a small inn nestled in Lincoln City's historic Taft district. Steeped in romance, history, and 1940s nostalgia, the inn is being renovated with utmost care to evoke the Oregon Coast experience of a bygone era. Please be aware that we are a hotel and restaurant for non-smokers. No smoking is allowed anywhere on premises. This includes all outside areas.
We are ideally located to take advantage of restaurants, galleries, and antique shops. Just a short stroll to the bay and beaches of the Pacific Ocean and the many other attractions of the coast region. Welcome to the heart of the Oregon Coast.
The Historic Anchor Inn is in a category of its own. Through the years it has been a hotel, motor court, and inn, but truly we are simply an eclectic combination of a lot of things.
Construction of the hotel began in 1942 and then was put on hold until 1946. It was originally named The Taft Heights Motor Court. This was a time when America was finding its wheels and motor courts were springing up everywhere there was a highway. In the late fifties a swimming pool (the first in Taft), was added and the old girl got a new name at the same time. It was re-named "The Holliday Motel" The graphics on the right are a copy of a map we found featuring advertising for The Holiday Motel.
In 1988 the Holiday was purchased by Dave and Georgia Seveny and became the Anchor Motel. The old motel went through several subsequent owners and fell into complete disrepair until it was purchased in 2006 by its current owners, Kip and Katrica Ward.
The number one question that we are asked is do all of our rooms have private bathrooms? The answer is yes. In fact most of our rooms have a kitchenette and a living room. All of our rooms have flat screen TVs with DVD players. A free homemade breakfast, complimentary DVD rental, fresh hot popcorn, and warm cookies are all included. We are certainly not for everybody so it is best if you check out our reviews and see if we will be a good fit for you.
