Convenient motel; excellent staff
Posted Sep 25, 2016
The Mariner is a nice cape cod motel. It is certainly not a luxury hotel or resort ( and they don't claim to be). However, the room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The location was excellent for catching the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, as well as for dining in Falmouth, which has several lovely restaurants and one of the best French patisseries we have found outside Paris.
The best part of the stay was how friendly and helpful Carla, who manages the hotel with her husband was. From providing guidance on the vineyard ferry to assisting with parking and dinner choices, she couldn't have been more helpful. She certainly helps set the Mariner apart from other motels in the area.
