My wife and I live about 2 hours from Carabelle in Southwest Georgia. Having been to Carabelle numerous times as a working musician we've always enjoyed our times there and we thought it was time to visit again. We had been by the Moorings a number of times and it always intrigued us...we love marinas...but the venues always provided accommodations and so we never had the opportunity to stay there until now. We were not disappointed in our choice of hotels.
I spoke with staff prior to our stay to ensure a room was available and they assured us one would be ready upon our arrival. Since our room would not be available until 3:00 PM we toured Carabelle and found that although much had changed the quaint, quiet town we remembered remained the same. We stayed overnight on Sunday and checked out on Monday...a short stay governed by work.
The room was on the second floor, very clean, and quite spacious with a king bed, a dining table with two chairs, a small refrigerator, and a small sink at the counter. The bathroom was very large and we had a balcony overlooking the marina. I don't own a boat, but if I did the slip was free. Although the hotel is pet friendly, we left ours at home.
The staff was exceptional...very accommodating and helpful. If you plan on using the pool make sure you ask the desk person for a key or you'll have to make the walk past the marina back to the lobby area. We used the pool and it was very clean with restrooms, an outside shower, and deck chairs. It's well lit at night and worth the evening swim. I noted during my stay that the staff makes regular rounds on the property to ensure safety and good order.
All-in-all, an exceptional value for the $69.00 we paid. It was a great break and we intend to return in October for a two-day stay so we can check out the beaches. For those of you who like Gulf seafood check out "The Fisherman's Wife" across the street. The staff recommended it, my shrimp and grouper were perfect, and I can't see how anyone would be disappointed with the price, quantity, and quality.
