Recommend staying at Spray or buccaneer.

Posted Oct 13, 2014
One staff member at desk was very pleasant, the rest were rude. No soap or toiletries in bathroom. Fridge was dirty with melted ice cream and smell. Cigarette butts all over balcony with dirty shoes from previous guest. Spray is much nicer and worth the price difference. Did not accommodate request for rooms being put together despite vacancy and ability, they originally said they would. Not kid friendly, neighbors complain about kids playing outside.

"Appearance CAN be deceiving"!!

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: Rooms were very clean and maintained.
Cons: Externally, the building need some sandblasting and a COUPLE coats of paint. it could be somewhat more pleasing to the eye if painted a bit BRIGHTER.
Location: Location is OK for what we wanted to do-- Relax & go to the BEACH
Arriving at this hotel, our 1st impressions were that it had sadly been neglected for awhile. Externally, it is showing its age and the many years of service that it has given to Jersey Shore visitors. HOWEVER, & this is important, it's really amazing how diligent, and hard working all of the staff are at The Mariner. Internally, the hotel is nearly spotless. The rooms are very clean, EVERYTHING actually works, and when we had a brief problem getting the safe to lock, the Manager was incredibly responsive!!! they had the safe problem corrected in maybe 30 minutes. Don't get that in the bigger 4* hotels!! It's very comfortable, a little cramped, but a nice, "heated" pool, and very close to the beach. We would CERTAINLY consider The Mariner Hotel on our next visit to the shore.

Nice, clean hotel.

Pros: It was near where we were going.
Cons: Make sure you have the right address.
Hotel was fine, but finding it was difficult because Expedia gave us the wrong address.

Great location!

The hotel was very clean and convenient to everything Beach Haven has to offer. The pool was awesome. And of course the beach is a few blocks away. We also were able to use the pool and parking at the Spray Beach hotel which is on the beach with a restaurant and bar. Our only complaint about the hotel is the air conditioning unit was very loud.

Clean and convenient

The hotel was reasonably priced for a beach at LBI and was a quick walk to the beach. I was worried about noise with it being on the boulevard, but it was very quiet and clean. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating, giving good recommendations for restaurants.

One night

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: That I could book just one night.
Cons: Updates to the rooms, nicer balcony's Overall I felt like I was back in the 1980's. The sign outside offering "color" television screamed 1960..
Location: Few blocks from the beach, in a beach community.
As the rentals on LBI book from sat. to sat. I booked The Mariner Inn for a Friday night before getting into our rental on LBI for the week. I knew it wasn't going to be anything fancy. IT suited it's purpose.

Great location in LBI, just got home tonite!

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: The location was great to everything.
Cons: Pillows could be bigger and thicker, that seems to be a common problem though at any hotel.
Location: LBI is just full of places to go to eat, shop, the Arcade, mini golf, endless...
We stayed at the Mariner Inn for the 1st time and everyone at the front desk was very nice before and during our visit. The room was nice and clean for the 5 of us and they brought in a rollaway bed. There are places to get food across the street which is very convenient and just a short two blocks up to the beaches. Thank you Donna and Melssa and the rest of the staff for being so nice. Hope S.
