“Pricey And Okay”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Rooms are slightly better than basic. Service can be slow - but it's "The Islands, Mon!" The only reason that you would stay here is to take a boat out the next day. However, it is clean and feels spacious and friendly and if you get the pricier "marina view" room you will fall asleep to the sounds of the harbor.

This review is about two of the restaurants on the property, first the original restaurant on the property, and a surprising coffee shop in the new part of the property. I have no real experience of the hotel or Charlies, a new restaurant that appears to be part of the hotel (though I will observe that Charlies functions more as a bar, and a very loud one, than a restaurant, at least on the weekends I was staying on a boat there). Please note that my "average" rating is just that - the restaurant gets a "terrible" rating, the coffee shop gets an "excellent" rating, so the averaged rating is "average".

The original restaurant is a pair of open pavilions near the pool. At dinner and breakfast, they lay out a buffet. Can't speak to the breakfast, but having arrived late-ish last Saturday evening, we had no choice but this place (we'd all been there before and not much liked it, but we had no choice at that hour). The salads were passable, but all six of us were served fish or meat that was unevenly cooked and uniformly charred. The net result was that all of us left behind between a quarter and a third of our main course meat or fish and as we left on finishing, we saw from the plates on uncleared tables that many people had been similarly served inedible food and had abandoned it.

The final insult was to be reminded that the "service charge" went only to the kitchen and not to the wait staff. Aaah, tango sierra, guys. Bad food - no, foul food - gets a bad tip.

We did have a pleasant breakfast at the coffee shop across from Charlies, and - surprise - we found that the same establishment served Asian-themed dinners on the terrace, so we had Malaysian-spiced mahi-mahi, conch and calamari. A bit too much heat in the sauces for my taste, but beautifully cooked and simply presented. Highly recommended.

As usual, the rooms and bathroom were clean but basic and could use an update. (Bath towels could be slightly larger too). we've stayed here numerous times due to its convenient location to picking up our Moorings Charter but wish it was a little nicer. The staff were friendly and looking out over all the masts was beautiful. Someone told us that there are some newly renovated rooms towards the end of dock - just above where the Moorings check-in is located.

Room Tip: ask if there are any newly renovated rooms available

After chartering with the Moorings for over 20 years we decided to charter for 12 days in the BVI for a family trip over Christmas to New Years 2013-14. We first had a 43.3 which had so many problems we turned it back in after 1 1/2 days and got a second boat. The charts on the second boat were for Mexico. Ha ha. This boat also had numerous problems. Since we were trying to have a fun vacation we tried our best to fix everything but without a basic toolkit on board we had to improvise. Anyway, so disappointed with the Moorings. Used to be a good company. We will no longer charter from them.

If you book with Moorings or Sunsail (same company) and require an overnight stay this is your option for convenience. Moorings would not let the family with us of four (with kids) stay in ONE room, they had to book TWO rooms, ridiculous, so they booked down the road and got caught in a downpour walking back to the Mariner Inn the day we left on our charter, everything soaking wet. The check in folks were nice, the guy that "helped" us to our room picked ONE of the lightest suitcases and walked off for us to follow with everything else. The rooms were just ok & the air conditioner made a horrible noise, yet again suited our needs for convenience. The food at the restaurants was barely good and overpriced. There is a nice grocery store down the street for picking up groceries and supplies for your charter again location location location, convenience otherwise would not recommend this hotel at all.

Rooms are ok...and they know they are the only show in town for people heading out on boats. Went to the buffet (Friday night)..food is good...but NOT $35 per plate worth! AND they add on the gratuity and expect "front end" tip to be added on ...take a $10 taxi into town and get better food and experience the area.

At the beginning of our 7 day charter we slept aboard our boat, but upon our return from the week of sailing it was wonderful to stay for a night at the Mariner Inn before our early flight out the next day. Our room was very comfortable, had a wonderful balcony and a great view of all the boats. The staff made it so easy to arrange for a cab ride to dinner at The Dove, as well as our cab ride to the airport early the next morning. This was our 2nd time staying at the Mariner Inn and I hope we're able to come back again! Sailing in the BVI is just paradise!
