Moorings Mariner Inn Hotel
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Road Town
Reviewed 6 April 2011

I hope Moorings is embarrassed by reading the reviews of their customers who had to stay in the older section of the hotel. We spent $7,000 to charter a beautiful sailboat in breathtaking islands but first had to endure staying in a room that should be condemned. IT was similar to the other reviews -- looked like it was painted by an unsupervised teenager, furnished with poor garage sale furniture -- looked more like a shed that they threw in a comfortable bed and some old rusty patio furniture. Egads! My suggestion is to confirm you are staying in a renovated room (they are beautiful) and if they can't guarantee it I would stay on the boat or another hotel in town. It is a major disappointment and distracts from the vacation if you get stuck in the wrong side of the hotel.

Another suggestion, the restaurant on site, Charlie's is lovely but be prepared for a long wait for food -- order drinks, get an appetizer and relax because it may take 90 minutes before you ever see your food.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get booked in Room #36

What a dump. Pay the money and stay on the boat the night before departure.

Really, for 220 a night it is definitely. Not worth the money. More like a 29 dollar room.

This is an excellent location if you're boarding one of the Moorings boats but EVERYONE must know, there are 2 parts to this hotel. We had friends with us and they stayed in the newer portion which was quite nice and clean. My wife and I were put in the older, and I mean OLD, section...a real dump. Even the stairs leading up to the rooms was patched with pieces of wood that were meant to hold together the rotted steps. The rain gutters were so full of holes, they'd just splatter water all over and just plain rain on your head would have been better.
The tile on the shower floor was only half there and the mini fridge/counter and sink look like pieces were borrowed and replaced with things that didn't fit or belong. It was really a dump.
However, the bed was very comfortable and for 2 nights, had a great sleep and at the end of the day, that's what counts. But seeing the complete difference in the nicer part and having to pay the same really burned us up. The staff was friendly and helpful and again, the location if you're boating is very convenient.
SO...SPECIFY WHICH PART OF THE HOTEL YOU WANT TO STAY IN!

We stayed at the Mariner Inn for one night prior to our seven night charter with Sunsail. We booked a marina view room and found the renovations to be lovely. The rooms have been done in a contemporary style with wonderful upgraded bathrooms and quality bedding. And of course the convenience of being right at the marina can't be beat!

Even though the rooms are great I'm still only giving the overall hotel an average rating b/c, at least for us, it is not a place we would take an extended stay. The pool area is small and nothing special and of course there is there is the constant action at the marina. The restaurants on property are also good but not outstanding. It is a property that caters to the boating crowd (as it should of course!)and for that purpose it is just perfect!

The quality of the newly refurbished units is very good. We had twice a beautiful room with great views on the marina. They seem to have problems with the hot water supply in the showers though.......
Generally friendly and helpful staff.

We went sailing on a Footloose bareboat after Thanksgiving this year. It was very windy and wavy conditions for two of us on a 32 foot monohull. We were worn out by the end of the week (still had a great time!). Anyway, we needed to be on the early ferry to St. Thomas on the last day of the charter so decided to stay the last night in the Mariner Inn. Room was expensive ($180) but was one of the nicest hotel rooms I have been in. We stayed in room #13. The shower is awesome and the king size bed was hands down the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. Who cares about TV channels (it's true there weren't many)? We had a wonderful dinner at Charlie's (again, expensive but delicious as were all of the meals we had in the BVI) and drank a bottle of wine sitting on our patio looking over the marina. A great way to end the week and went refreshed to the ferry and our long day of travel to return home.

We rented a 47 powercat from the Moorings in Tortola. Came in the day before (a must), stayed in one of the newer rooms over looking the water & powercats. Rooms were fabulous!! Some of the nicest we've ever had. Hotel could use some help w/ bellman. A little bit of running around the day we got on the boat gathering fishing gear, laptops, scuba gear, kayaks & additional food. We provisioned thru the Moorings & had more than enough food & we ordered too many beverages! Boat was immaculate. A few minor issues & the Moorings sent help immediately to resolve those issues. Boats break-fact of life. We had to alter a few of our stops due to a nearby hurricane, but still every beach/cove we went to was better than the next. A little disappointed w/ Jost Van Dyke & Foxy's, but White Harbor was beautiful. Norman Island - Pirates Bight, is not to be missed. Diving was soo convenient & easy & these boats are made for cruising. Stable ride, enough to easily accomodate 10 people. We stayed 2 nites @ the Bitter End Yacht Club moorings. Virgin Gorda & the Baths were also a highlight of our trip. We can't wait to go back again. Zip lock bags were an important "must have" & we also brought inflatable tubes. Bathing suits & cover-ups are all you need. Didn't wear any of the capris or pants we brought until we were going home. Highly recommend the french bakery for their cheeses to take on your cruise near the Moorings.
