Adam Gay Video Directory rated The Anchor Hotel all of five stars and called it a collaboration of "all the Bjorn Trademarks". Keeneye Reeves from TLA Video and Gay Chicago Magazine rated this video all of four stars. Brad Benedict from Ambush MAG praised it as "two hours of beautiful guys". The reviewer from Frisky Fans website rated it four out of five stars, verified that men wore condoms during sex scenes, and praised it with "minimalist plot". Nevertheless, he found the orgy scene the "weakest", even with "hot guys" involved. Two reviewers from Rad Video highly praised this video. One of them, Tim Evanson, called it Bjorn's redemption from his past few films that Evanson condemned, yet he negated the foursome scene as weak and noticed some men's lack of erection during the orgy scene.
In the 1997 Grabby Awards, it was awarded the "Best International Video", and Kristen Bjorn won the "Best Director" for this video and two other videos.
