“Great Family Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We've come to the Marriner Resort first with our children and now with our grandkids. it's a great family oriented resort with a very relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are spotless and the facilities are top notch. With both an indoor and out door pool, there's always a place to go. The grounds are beautiful with flowers everywhere and meticulously cared for by very friendly staff. The Marriner is a family owned business and the owners live on the property. The resort is on the trolley route and both Wells and Ogunquit beaches are just minutes away. You can walk, drive, or take the trolley.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the ends of the north and south wings have a river and ocean view.

I would stay there again, it was a good choice! Better than average continental breakfast. As others have said, its a little dated, but very clean. Trolley stop across the street. All in all a good choice!

Room Tip: You may want second floor if you do not want to hear folks above you.

We loved our weekend stay here at The Mariner Resort. The rooms were comfortable, spotless, and well equipped with a small table and chairs, regular sized fridge, and microwave.
We enjoyed the continental breakfasts, coffee served all day, and the two pools, one indoor, one outdoor.
We also liked the location which is close to Wells and just a bit away from the crowded village in Ogunquit. We in fact chose to eat dinner each night in Wells and found it too be less hectic.

The view at the resort is lovely as you see the marsh and sea just beyond the resort property.
The trolley to town is a quick walk away, though there can be delays. We chose not to use the trolley for this reason.

The owners are very attentive to the small requests we had and they keep the resort in wonderful condition. Each staff member we spoke with was friendly and helpful.
We even purchased friendship bracelets in the reception area which were made by the owner's daughter, our kids were delighted with them. The bracelets provided a nice memory of this special family get away. We didn't have to go far to shop!

This is a standard type beach hotel with outdoor rooms opening onto a walkway. There are chairs outside the room and small table which is helpful for after this kids go to bed as the night air is lovely this time of year. The rooms are old but very clean and the beds are comfortable. The AC was cool and the fridge worked fine. The outdoor pool was nice on the hot day.

The only negative is that Internet did not function at all for us.

I had stayed at the Mariner in October a few years back. It was just a quick visit but I really like the area and when my fiancé and I were looking for a place to getaway for the weekend I thought of Ogunquit and knew the Mariner would be the perfect place to stay.
The resort is in a great location and close to the Footbridge beach (which was beautiful). There is also a trolley pick up right outside the resort, which is very helpful because at certain times of the day parking is hard to find and also can expensive. Both times that I stayed at the Mariner, I was very happy with the resort. The rooms are very spacious and clean, also having an refrigerator in the room was great for keeping snacks and drinks in the room. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The pools and hot tub are very a good size, clean and we enjoyed relaxing by the pool after a few hours at the beach each day. We love the town of Ogunquit and would love to plan a trip back soon. Of course we will stay at the Mariner!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: The second floor rooms in the 100's have a great view of the Ogunquit River and the ocean behind...

My girlfriend and I recently took a quick "get away" trip to the beautiful Maine coast. But because it was short notice, and 7/5 just after the holiday we were having problems finding a vacancy. Typically we use the B&B venue and have stayed at some of the best on the SeaCoast. I took a chance on the Mariner, based on the reviews I read (write reviews very helpful). Friendly hosts, very clean, and a very good value for the money. The trolly stops virtually in front on the Mariner so you can beat the notorious Ogunquit traffic. A "do-able" walk to beautiful Footbridge beach, and a very short ride to Ogunquit village. Well maintained grounds and a beautiful view will certainly bring me back to the Mariner !!

My family and I discovered the Mariner several years ago. We have never been disappointed. The rooms are wonderfully clean, spacious and inviting. The grounds are neat with attractive landscaping. Pricing is reasonable and the Mariner is well located to area attractions and neighboring towns. In the morning its nice to sit out on the porch, view the salt marshes and the ocean in the distance. Its charming and relaxing-all that a vacation stay should be.
