“A simple motel, but well-run and a great deal”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

There's nothing fancy about the Mariners Motel or its location (across the street from a marina), but the rooms are impeccably clean and cheery, the owners are kind and helpful, the wifi is fast, and the prices are the best you'll find for a pleasant stay in a shore town on the Eastern Shore. Use this spot as a launch pad to explore Kent County and beyond!

Small and adorable, very clean and comfortable is the Mariner's.
Owned and well run by a friendly family.
Located by the water-town trolley passes by.
Would recommend and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: good for all ages

A wonderful place to stay and explore Rock Hall, MD. Very clean and cozy. We arrived late (8:00 PM) and Ann helped to "talk us in" from the main road. Ann was very helpful to get us promptly checked in and on our way to Waterman's Crab House for a fabulous Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab dinner. In the room we found a binder full of great information. They have very reasonable rates and the next time we are in the area, Mariners Motel will be our first choice. The Rock Hall Pirates Festival looked especially intriguing for the month of August. We will be back!

Room Tip: Due to time constraints, we did not utilize the pool that Mariners Motel offered.

We stayed at the Mariners Motel with our hiking club on a weekend excursion. This is your basic quaint and cute motel next to a harbor. It was reasonably priced. We had a busy weekend schedule and spent very little time there except to sleep and take showers. Our small room was in tip top shape as if it had been recently remodeled. It was exceptionally clean. Beds were comfortable and sufficient. There was a little noise to one side of us (snoring) but this was a room with an adjoining door. That weekend we met a couple who recently retired and moved to Rock Hall. They reported that before they bought a house here, they would come on weekends and stay at the Mariners. They said that they had tried all the other hotels in town and decided that this was the best!

We have stayed several times in the Mariner, during trips to Rock Hall to take care of our sailboat which is located in a local Marina. We travel with a dog, and the Mariner is pet friendly. In addition, rooms are always clean and comfortable. The location is attractive and convenient.

We have stayed at the Mariners Motel many times over the last 10 years. We kept our powerboat in Rock Hall and our friends would come for a visit and stay at the Mariners. The rooms are always spotless, clean and very comfortable, with all of the amenities of a large hotel and the comforts of home. Ann, the owner, welcomes you like you are family. You have a view of Rock Hall harbor and you are within walking distance of the two best restaurants in town. It's also a good base if you want to plan day trips to visit other Eastern Shore locations like Chestertown, St. Michaels, or Kent Narrows and it's only about an hour and a half from downtown Annapolis. We would highly recommend the Mariners Motel and can't wait to visit again.

My wife and I have stayed at the Mariner's Motel numerous times over the last 5 years and it always has been a great place for us to stay. We have a sailboat in Rock Hall and when we come and go for the summer we often stay here at the beginning and end of the boating season for a few days. Our room has all the comforts and conveniences we need and has been maintained in excellent condition through the years. The managers are always accommodating and go out of their way to serve their customers in a warm and friendly way. Everything in Rock Hall is nearby, including the main city docks and marinas right across the street. We would recommend it as fine choice for a most comfortable stay for whatever the reason for your visit to the area. We'll always come back to "our Mariner's".
