“Wonderful week at the Marlin”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

My two teens and I stayed in Room 316 from March 10 to 17. We had an oceanfront room on the main floor with one bedroom and a pull out couch. I had noticed the Marlin on-line and got a rate for this spot for LESS than I would have paid for an oceanfront hotel room. The suite was large and super clean with a patio door view of the ocean and kitchen view as well. The kitchen was super-equipped with everything you could want. The linen closet packed with towels and linens. There was a remodelled bath and a large storage room with boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler, you name it. The bedroom had two comfy doubles and a walk in closet. In the living room there were books and games left from other visitors. The vibe of guests and management was very friendly and it felt like home.
The guests are a snowbird crowd and there is no pool. This didn't matter to us as the ocean and beach were so beautiful and close. It was a wonderful holiday and I would highly recommend this property to others for value, cleanliness, location, and relaxation.

Room Tip: We loved our oceanfront suite 316.

I recently stayed at The Marlin, what a find! Clean, comfortable rooms. Perfect for a beach getaway! Not a large property, no pool but just outside your door is the wide, warm sandy beach of the Atlantic. Our room had two double beds and a sleeper. We had a side unit with a limited view of the ocean but for the price I will return year after year. The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of clean towels, blankets and with a coin op washer/dryer on site I went home with clean clothes which made the return to home stress free before heading back to work Monday morning. Just exactly what you need for a true beach vacation! I highly recommend The Marlin, tell them Nona Beach sent you!

brilliant location close to shops restaurants and bars etc. we had 2nd floor oceanfront apt. apt had decent living area with a settee 2 reclining chairs and a full size tv. kitchen was small but had dishwasher, fridge freezer and cooker. bathroom was small and bedroom was adequate size with 2 double beds. there was 2 storage cupboards.the view was outstanding. from the balcony and would have to give 100% for that. However the apt was not clean. when we arrived the settee had dead flies on it and the bath was dirty with long dark hairs ( not mine as i am blonde}. the bed was the most uncomfortable bed i have ever slept in, it had lumps and bumps all over. on closer inspection i found the mattress had a foam covering and the pillows were disgusting with stains all over.the balcony has millions of dead flies on it and we had to sweep it .the plastic chairs had years of grime on them.such a pity because i loved the location and the the view. but unless you are prepared to clean this apt and bring your own bedding then i would not recommend you stay here but look elsewhere.we had travelled from northern ireland and had really expected perfection as we have had in other places we have stayed but on this occasion we were very disappointed.

Room Tip: be sure to ask for 2nd floor oceanfront.
