The aircon worked, the room was very clean, it was waterfront next to all the amenities. it was quiet for sleeping. It was also $200/night for a motel room.

We stayed for 4 nights. We had a new room with 2 queen beds & a single. The room was lovely, spacious and very clean. The bathroom was also very large. We found it relaxing looking at the water view (yachts in foreground). We could see the sea from the bath, bedroom or balcony! Very nice!
We found the Mariner restaurant staff to be very friendly and helpful - they went out of their way to cater for the children offering meals they thought the children may like and helpful suggestions - "no problem". The Chef at Charlies was also willing to adapt meals from the adult menu - making them "plainer and smaller" for our young son, which was helpful as the adults were keen to try the food at Charlies.
Overall we found that the staff throughout the hotel all tried hard and when things didn't go quite right they did their best to rectify any problems.

Room Tip: Newer rooms with a sea view.

When booking a bareback boat with Moorings and paying the price that you pay, I would have expected better accommodations the night before we sailed. The Mariner Inn was disgusting- the rooms are old, the bathroom was filthy and by far the worst- brown water came out of the sink! We waited to take our morning showers until AFTER we were on the boat the next day. The stay at Mariner Inn was worse than a stay at a Motel 6 but with the price of resort! The ONLY positive I can give this place is the convenience to the Moorings office- which is the only reason this establishment is still in business.

While the Moorings, I am told is the best, You still need to check your equipment. Our radio didn't work very well, so I suggest getting a phone for back up $25 dollar rental fee on the dock and then cost of card came in handy to get in touch with different marinas when radio not working and luckily did not have any emergencies to speak off. However the pull came of the outboard motor on our dinghy. So we had to row our boat! We rented a 41.5 Sailboat not really fit for the 7 of us. Yes I did say 7.... 4 would be perfect 5 tolerable. Battery was always low and I don't believe the toilets were working as they should be. One towel per person for 7 days for both beach and shower doesn't work for me and neither do flat pillows..... Can't accuse me of being a "Ritz Carlton" girl because I was the only one who slept on deck the entire time so I consider the rest of the crew "Landlubbers". It was a great experience and the crew at the moorings did a wonderful job of responding to our requests. I just feel and perhaps that was our fault things should have been looked at carefully before we left.

Room Tip: Check at the Boat and Dinghy before you leave!

Spent two nights before our Moorings 474MC charter and really ejoyed it. The pool and grounds are pretty. The staff was friendly. Food is expensive, but it was everywhere. Pool view room was quiet, comfortable and clean. It's a short walk to the charter company and there is a dive shop, small grocery, gift shops and nice boardwalk to watch the charters coming and going. There are two other restaurants within a very easy walk, less than a block. There's no beach because you are at the yacht harbor.

For the money there are a lot better rooms on Tortola. It is the perfect location if you need a room before or after a charter, but don't expect much more than A/C and a comfortable bed. There are clearly at least three sections of this hotel, some newly built, some newly renovated and some sections just need to be torn down and start over. You don't get the choice of paying more or less based on the rooms either - it's a crap shoot on what quality room you get and in what section. You'll see in the details that I marked "No" for high-speed internet - in reality they have free internet, but it was slow and blocked sites, for instance, I couldn't pull up any streaming media at all.

My bottom line is stay here if all you really need is a break from the heat before/after your charter and you want to be right beside the boats. Otherwise, find another place on the island, it's a pretty small island, better value rooms are close by.

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
