“Mediocre at Best”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The only redeeming part of this establishment is the view of the ocean and of the Vineyard with the passing boats. The accommodations are very small, unclean, and many electrical outlets did not work properly. The resort needs a major overhaul, and much of the exterior looks rundown and in need of maintenance.

Room Tip: Require a room in the front of the resort as these are the only rooms that have a view of the ocean.

Good location and great views of ocean and the Vineyard but we felt uncomfortable and the rooms were less than clean by far. Many other nicer places near by. Staff was not that helpful and sometimes we felt like we were not welcome as there are many time share units with regular users. Something was missing. A one time place to stay for us. I don't know what 'grounds' people are talking about as the motel is all there is (not even a tree or bush).

You wont find a better view of falmouth harbor or Martha's Vineyard. The kite park affords a bunch of space for frisbee, kites, baseball etc. The rooms are a bit small, but there is so much to enjoy outside that it's not an issue. You can cook stovetop in your room or use the big kitchen or the grills. The pool is very nice and heated plus the jacuzzi is right off of it. The private beach is a bit rocky, but we love it for the views and the constant boat traffic in and out of the harbor. Could sit there all day. Great town for dining, shopping. For a you tube picture set of the resort and it's surroundings, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNyDV1nHhWU

We were pleasantly surprised how clean our unit was. We exchanged our timeshare through Interval International we were in a studio. Unit was small but adequate it had everything we needed. Beautiful grounds loved the pool.

I'm re-posting this review as it seems the review I posted yesterday was mysteriously removed. I advise folks looking for a place to stay in Falmouth to steer clear of this "resort". room was not very clean upon arrival, mattresses were old, tired and very uncomfortable. blankets were dirty and towels were old, scratchy and thread bare. the only positive about this place is that it is walking distance from the Island Queen. Not a good experience.

We stayed for 7 days at Mariners Point in Falmouth. We had a great time. The hotel, which is owned by time share owners, was very nice. The room, we stayed in a Studio, was very clean. That is really important to me, and I was very satisfied. It has a very little kitchen area that was awesome. It had fridge,stove,sink and all utensils, dishes,toaster,coffeemaker etc. It was helpful for a weeks stay, we were able to eat breakfast and lunch in the hotel and went out to dinner each night. I brought paper dishes and plastic utensils only because I didn't want to do dishes on vacation. The Hotel is right across from a small private beach. It is a great area to walk and ride bikes. We rode all over! It was great! The staff is very friendly ...my son loved the pool. Great time!!!

Reviewed 7 July 2010

Stayed at this place over 4th of July weekend and was impressed. First off the location is ideal situated right across from the beach in scenic Falmouth Heights section of Falmouth, down the road walking distance to the Island Queen ferry to the Vineyard. The place is a timeshare mostly, but rents a few rooms to lucky vacationers. The room we had was a studio complete with kitchen and rear deck. The room fit 4 people nicely and the complex included a crystal clear pool/whirlpool and a very friendly staff. The prices for this time of the year were reasonable and for this location cheaper than even the hotels not close to the beach. The only complaint I have is that no one mentioned for this time of the year, the road closes to all traffic at 8pm for the fireworks and doesn't open until 10pm. If we had known this we would have planned better. Other than this the place was great! Worth a stay!
