“not worth it”
Reviewed 15 May 2008

Just your run of the mill hotel - nothing special to talk about - be care full when checking out - tried to give us a phone bill when we never used the phone. Rooms dark and if your are on the first floor you will hear every foot step above you. Not very quiet or peaceful. Will not return - stayed at better ones on the Cape.

For the xost to stay at the Mariner it is very good. The hotel is nothing exceptional, but decent. It is clean and the service was fine. We went during April vacation and they had lots of activities for kids to do, but it did not interrupt if you did not have children with you. The rates at this hotel were 1/3 of the rates at some hotels right down the stret that are a little nicer, but not much. If you want to save money, then go to the Mariner. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, and charcoal pits if you want to cook your own dinner, which is pretty neat. Each room has its own mini-fridge too which is a nice accessory to have.

For what we paid for an off-season rate at the Cape, this hotel was well worth it. The room was spacious and clean. All the rooms have indoor corridors that lead to the hot tub and pool area. The hot tub and indoor pool are open until midnight and it's adults only from 10:00 PM on. Big plus there!
It's centrally located on the Cape and it has Molly's next door. Not the most upscale pub I have been to but it's a cool sports bar to grab a couple of drinks.
Overall, I would stay here again. It's technically a motor lodge, and for that I would give 3.5 stars out of 5. Compared to actual hotels, 2-2.5 stars.

  • Liked — location and price
  • Disliked — too many kids -in fairness it was school vacation week.

We were there last week (first full week in October). We were with a bus group and stayed four nights. The biggest complaints from everyone is hard beds and flat pillows. Also, since a lot of the people were seniors (I'm not but some people have a hard time walking), they had a hard time going upstairs. There isn't a elevator. The employees did help carry suitcases upstairs. I didn't use the indoor pool (seemed a little cold for me) or the hot tub. The people were friendly. I asked to use a computer and they gave me the key to their break room. One of the people in our group pulled their sheets back and found hair under the sheets. The lot is nice to walk around. They gave our group a continental breakfast. Nothing fancy but if you want something to eat, they had fruit, cereal and pastries. I would have liked to walk to the beach but we were only there at night so I didn't get to see how far it was.

I think that is all I can think of.

I chose this hotel for the rate and the reviews on tripadvisor. The hotel was clean and neat. It is not very modern, but it is very well kept. It was a very comfortable environment. It is a typical Cape Cod style hotel. The staff were friendly and the hotel offered plenty of local information. You were even able to BBQ if you wanted and they supplied the tools. You just bring food and charcoal. The hotel also offered free miniature golf and they had a small play area for kids. The location was great to all. The beaches were not too far away. We enjoyed the pool especially the indoor one. The only thing I would like to see is a coffee maker in the room and alittle less over kill on the air freshener. The refrigerator was a plus. The hotel was a great place for my family. They offered breakfast . We would return.

Given the prices of some of the other motels in the area this was a bargain but you get what you pay for. It wasn't the Ritz but it wasn't the Bates Motel either!

Free coffee was nice and we felt the staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Indoor pool had way too much chlorine although the outdoor pool was fine. I will agree with some of the reviews that the stairs and hallways were noisy when you walked on them

The last night we stayed the Yarmouth Police showed up around midnight to answer a disturbance down the hall. Seemed like there were a large number of teenagers and those in their early twenties which may explain the noise and horseplay. I'm afraid that the motel, despite their good intentions, may not be appropriate for young families like mine as I felt a little wary of some of the guests that were stayting there.

Location was the reason why we chose the Mariner, within walking distance to everything including Seagull Beach. However we'll likely consider other properties first the next time we go.

We stayed there back in '96 and 11 years later, not much has changed. Room style is of late 80s but I've been in places that look like they're from the 50s, so that's not too shabby... First thing I noticed upon stepping in was one of the entry door's glass had tape all over it, as if they were too cheap to repair it. Floors a little creaky. Our room faced the rear parking lot which was perfect for us - much quieter! Checkin/out was easy -they make you sign something though stating you won't smoke or be subject to a $150 fee, because all rooms are non-smoking (horray!)

In a nutshell:

Pros - location, convenience to seagull beach, Dunkin Donuts, and everything else, cleanliness, affordable place to stay Mid-Cape, TV cable selection

Cons - beds were hard, A/C converted to "automatic"/energy saver was a little tricky, no wifi/internet, calls 25c + .05c/minute if you did want to dial up, tiny bathroom

I'd give the place at least a 4 if the beds were comfortable, but since most of our time is spent sleeping in a motel room, it's one of the most important qualities! Might stay there again but also willing to see what else is out there that we haven't tried.
