Reviews for Beacon Marina
Different price. Different marina, 2016-07-16
Captain: , Marathon (91)

We tied a 41 sail to the T-head and went inside to pay. The rates are $2/ft if you are not also staying at the Inn! No special deals for staying longer! Still cheaper than anywhere else but the docks show it. Try to cal lthe dockmaster on his phone at 410 394 1472. The inside slips are very tight to maneauver and the alongside docks are abysmally small for access to a sailboat.

Great for short stay!, 2015-09-19
Captain: , Oriental, NC (190)

Price is great. Docks are in good shape with excellent w-fi - make sure you ask for the marina password. Bathroon facilities are not well maintained. We stayed two nights but since we were staying in the area for a couple of months we opted for a marina with better facilities. Don't worry if you can't reach the dockmaster. He is hard to get in touch with. We just tied up at the t-dock and checked in at the hotel desk.

Great location, 2014-07-25
Captain: , Redondo Beach, CA (260)

Five stars for the location and two stars for the hotel. Cute location right in front of a marina with a restaurant and bar right next door. I realize this is a Comfort Inn, not a Hilton, but a couple of sterno burners to keep the breakfast warm wouldn't be too much to ask would it? Cold eggs, cold sausage and stale biscuits is not a great way to start your day. Room was ok by Comfort Inn standards. Staff was friendly enough.

This is My FIrst Star rating Ever, 2014-07-09
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

I have over 2500 points and this is the first time I have ever rated a marina below par. I called three days in advance and got transferred five times - yes 5. Left a message with the receptionist who said the dock master was not at work today. Next day, called and was transferred only once, but got disconnected. Left message on machine. Called the day we were to arrive, and was told that the dockmaster had a different phone number. Called that number, and no answer, but left a message. No return call after 3 hours. Went to another marina.

like the free stuff, 2014-06-05
Captain: , Englewood, FL (905)

We usually opt for $1/ft marinas but this wasn't an option in Solomons. So we picked this one on the low price end & found free washer & dryer, free ice, and free breakfast in Comfort Inn. Plus, a nice pool to swim in. No assistance in docking but the facilities are adequate & the freebies make it a Solomons bargain.

Screwpile 2013, 2013-07-30
Captain: , Hampton VA (150)

had 4 rooms there, all in excellent condition. They will take pets there but there is a $20 per day per pet cleaning charge.

Can't beat the price, 2013-06-17
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (350)

$1 a foot and free electric can't be beat! But this is not a "fancy" place. The women's showers were filthy, there was some black muck on the floor. Close walk to West Marine store and strip mall for supplies. Captains Table next door has decent enough food and a bar.

Nobody home, 2012-10-13
Captain: , Westport,Ma (710)

Made a reservation called ahead one hour out and got no answer arrived floated off the docks 30 mins calling on the radio the slip I was told was mine had a boat in it so went to spring cove got a nice t head and will wait out the weather there never to return to beacon

A surprising value, 2012-08-12
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

[update 12 Aug 2012 - the price on a Sun night was only $1 per foot - still includes free electric, free ice, free laundry, pool, and free breakfast in Comfort Inn. Not fancy, but hard to beat!]

This was one of the few places with a slip for Memorial Day weekend without a reservation. The pros: Affordable price ($1.50/ft), Free electric, laundry, ice, and hotel breakfast. Cons: Few showers (good nozzles and pressure, though) and tiny finger piers.

Hotel Breakfast, 2011-09-28
Captain: , Mattituck, NY. (391)

This is also a Hotel. You can have their breakfast each morning just like the hotel guests.
Dock have short fingers or stern get off only. T heads are very short. Close to many restaurants. $1.00 Ft. and grocery store.
Solomons is a great area to visit.

Good southern Maryland culture, 2010-01-16
Captain: , Albemarle Plantation, NC (389)

This marina is within walking distance of the Solomons Island tourist mecca; a great destination for a long weekend trip down from the craziness of DC or Baltimore. On-site restaurant is down-home. Comfort Inn has jacuzzi rooms. Inquire about nearby restaurants -- the locals know crabs.

good reasonable marina, 2009-09-16
Captain: , Worton (445)

The monthly rate is quite reasonable for the Bay. A lot of fishing boats, pretty crazy on holiday weekends. Staff very helpful. You get a discount rate at the Comfort Inn.
