“Do The Days Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

My family usually stays at a different hotel in the area. However, after last minute planning, the only decent room I could find was at the Mariner. It was quite costly for the small room, but provided us with a good stay. I was a bit skeptical after reading some not so nice reviews, but everything turned out ok.

We got to the hotel in the middle of a downpour and as it turned out, our key did not work. The locks appear to stick, due to the salt in the air. A very nice girl at the front desk was eager to help and did everything she could, to no avail. She called maintenance who QUICKLY arrived. We were told to dump water on the lock to get it to work properly. We got into the room and it was small as reported by others. However, it was clean, despite a few smudge marks on the vanity. The bathroom was VERY small, but the outside sink was a nice touch. Everything seemed newly renovated, from the carpet to the vanity.

Despite it being an outside hotel, the room was VERY quiet. I rarely sleep well and was never disturbed by the people staying around us. We did not eat breakfast, but it smelled good and seemed to offer a nice variety for a small hotel.

All in all, I would stay again and recommend the Days Inn to a friend.
