Kids can splash around in the indoor or outdoor pools or take a trip to nearby beaches and attractions. A variety of water sport excursions are available nearby as well as shopping, restaurants, theme parks and water parks.

We had stayed in previous hotels in the area on other visits, but decided to give the Mariner Resort a try. We were certainly happy that we did. Check-in was speedy, we stayed in room 224 (corner king on top level). The room was very clean, shower was excellent and the bed was super comfortable!! We would definitely stay here again and request the same room. They also have a breakfast buffet in the morning but we did not try that out. Resort is right across the street from trolley pick up, which is a plus also.
3rd year in a row staying at The Mariner. Under new management this year, couldn’t tell. Everything is the same. Clean rooms and facilities. Kids love the pools and we enjoy the hot tub. Great view of the ocean even though it’s not ocean side. Everything in Ogunquit is in walking distance or take the trolley (bus) for a small fee. Very walker friendly town. Nice seeing so many people walking or biking. Probably won’t go on Labor Day weekend again as I didn’t realize Labor Day is the grand exit for vacationers heading back towards MA. Will definitely be going back at a different time next year.
