“A sweet sea-side hotel”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

We stayed at Maria's by the Sea for one night prior to our charter. The rooms were spacious and clean. They had beautiful sea views. Try to get a superior room on the second or third floors. All the seaside rooms have balconies. The pool was a relaxing place to hang out. The staff was courteous, helpful, and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

Maria's By The Sea is a great location in Road Town, easy walking distance to shops and restaurants yet removed and pretty quiet if you are on the water side. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Rooms are island simple. After a late afternoon arrival we decided to eat in the restaurant and what a delightful surprise. The fresh grouper was fantastic as was the tuna. And the breeze blowing in off the Caribbean was refreshing and really helped to get us into an island mood.

Room Tip: Spend the extra dollars for an waterview room, third floor if you can get it.

This hotel was waterfront and very relaxing. Listening to the waves gently hitting the beach made sleep pleasant and seeing the sailboard moored in the background was beautiful. My room was fairly large and had a nice deck overlooking the waterfront. The staff was accomodating and helpful.

The location made it easy to go to the market, visit nearby restaurants, deli, and shops....

The hotel is expanding and the new addition is almost ready.

Internet service in many rooms is spotty but it always works in the lobbies.

Stayed the night before our bare boat charter started. The room was dated but very clean and quiet. We checked in late after a very long day traveling and the bartender stayed open for us after closing (midnight) so that we could unwind with a few drinks. We had breakfast in the morning which was very good.

Maria's is quite the plain hotel smack-dab in Roadtown. It sits right on the waterfront and has a nice view of the harbour, but that's about it for aesthetics. Though, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention the hotel is currently being renovated and looks promising. I stayed here one night for business and it was a bit pricey, but it was peak season. The best part of Maria's is its location. It's close to everything in Roadtown. Pusser's and many other shopping destinations are all in walking distance. The prices will probably skyrocket when the updating is finished as this place sits on prime real estate.

As with many others, stayed one night on way to pick up a charter boat. Location is great for being walking distance to a couple restaurants and the ferry dock, but the price is high for what it is. Tripadvisor's range is also too low- check their website for the real $$$ rates. Rooms were icky and dated- perhaps the major expansion that is underway will be worth it once it's open. The beds were, in a word, uncomfortable and the sheets were old. We didn't have any problems with construction noise, but the door key system was new and wasn't working right and ultimately they had to give us a normal physical key to the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful, however. While the hotel is close to the ferry dock, it is not close to Wickham's Cay II, so an extra taxi ride will be needed. We left our bags at the hotel while we did our grocery shopping, so the extra round-trip taxi ride to get them basically wiped out the savings over staying at the Moorings hotel.

Room Tip: we stayed in the cupola/tower-like building at the back of the old part of the hotel in order to sta...
