Our stay at Maria's by the Sea was one night. Pros... 1) exceptionally clean; 2) a short 3 minute walk from the ferry dock; 3) nice view of the Road Town harbor; 4) large bright room; 5) includes safe, fridge, mircowave. Cons.... 1) staff not indifferent but not enthusiastic; 2) safety could be improved with an uneven step at the...

Clean and modern hotel, friendly staff, good food, challenging location. Set on a riprap beach between the ferry dock and village cay. Not a family vacation resort, but a nice modern air conditioned hotel in town, with spacious rooms with a view for business or resting a weary traveler.

Large, clean room with air conditioning and good wifi connectivity for working. I was in Road Town for client meetings and enjoyed the views and hospitality from the staff. Easy to get to clients from this hotel and close to the dock to catch a ferry to other islands.

We stayed at Maria's by the Sea for one night before our sailing trip. It was conveniently located...close to ferry and to several restaurants and shops. The views of sea from the restaurant and bar were lovely! Request an oceanfront room if you are able because the view is stunning. We enjoyed their pool and the delicious Painkillers from the...

Our Airbnb accommodations were not as expected, so we were in an immediate need for lodging. The bartender at Pusser's recommended Maria's by the Sea and luckily they had a room available. Room was spacious and very clean. Onsite restaurant wasn't very good at all. We spent most of our time island hopping each day which was just a short...

The room was big and clean and we had a nice view. That said, the whole building lacked character....and felt a touch bleak. I don't know what to compare it to -- but we were happy with our stay -- as we were prioritizing location.

Maria's By the Sea exceeded my preconceived expectations. I was expecting an average at best hotel and it was a nice hotel. Not a five, star luxury hotel, but that wasn't what we were looking for. The staff was nice and helpful. The location was great and there was plenty of parking at all times. Our room wasn't plush, but...

We stayed at Maria's by the sea in July 2016 for a night before setting sail and for a night upon our return From sea. The hotel was perfect for this purpose. The food was tasty, the pool great and the staff were friendly. It's close enough to walk to nearby restaurants, shopping village, taxi rank and ferry dock. The...

Stayed one night prior and post a sailing charter. We found the location great, being within walking distance of the ferry dock and town. Being on the waters edge, most rooms facing the ocean have fantastic views and include a lovely balcony. The reception was very helpful with an early check in when it was available. Much appreciated after a...
