Great marina, staff and restaurant

Dockmaster Mary is terrific. Coastal Kitchen restaurant onsite is very good. Disappointed to learn upon arrival that Morningstar no longer provides a courtesy car (but website still says it does).

Great stop on our great loop trip. The dockmaster was phenomenal. She was great on the radio and really handled the rush of boats that came in. She needs a raise.

Nice facility and dock hand was terrific. Just a little too expensive for our budget but had to duck in from weather.

Very nice. Good restaurant

Being a delivery captain this is always a great stay. Super friendly staff. This trip being pleasure not business we’ve got a Ausie doodle with us. Dockwa stated there was a bark park and there’s not. You have to leave the marina to an area next to a highway. Now obviously Oakley didn’t care so is it really that bad? You can be the judge. Will absolutely stay here again.

Staff was courteous and were quick to assist tie off. Restaurant on site was one of best burgers I’ve had in a while, and coffee shop was delicious as well as nice staff. Will stay again when in the area.

It was alright but not premium. We’ve had better service at many less expensive marinas. The dock hand helped with tying the lines but left one of the ends dragging in the water as we docked and never lifted it out before leaving. He offered no information on the island or facilities but did answer questions. We enjoyed the cafe onsite but the larger restaurant was closed. It would’ve been nice if this had been mentioned on the Dockwa listing. When we asked for a pump out on our second day we were advised it was broken and they were awaiting a hose to repair it. Again, it would’ve been nice to be notified of this earlier, so we could plan accordingly The bathrooms were clean, but the showers seemed to be missing most of their clothes hooks. The laundry room looked like the floors have not been cleaned in some days and needed more machines based on the demand we saw. They mention a dog park but we saw only a thin strip of grass at the side of the driveway. Overall, the Marina wasn’t terrible, just not up to the standard we expected.

by Wes D. - Verified user on Jan 21, 2024
All good as always. Restaurant was closed for off season so we didn’t get to enjoy the wonderful dinner but the marina is a good (and warm) place for a night in the 20s. Will come again when a little warmer and restaurant is open.

We’ll run facility and nice location. Only suggestion is loaner car time limit is too short at 1 hour. By the time you allow for getting to/from and getting a cart, even with the grocery only 5 minutes away you only can shop for 30 minutes. Therefore not a good spot for provisioning.
