We have stayed at HHS many times over the past few years and always received excellent customer service. The staff is courteous and friendly. This is really the best marina on the Chesapeake Bay. We have just retired and was finally able to make this our home port starting April 1, 2019. Very clean beautiful grounds and beach. Excellent location on the bay for sailors who want great sailing access as soon as you leave the channel.
I got married at Herrington in 2017 and came back on my anniversary with our wife and stayed at the marina for the weekend. The dock staff was extremely helpful and flexible, allowed us to pick the best spot for our catamaran, and allowed easy check out in the morning. The marina is beautiful, the facilities were great, and the restruant was excellent. Highly recommend.
We arrived around 7 PM and were happy to be in a protected slip. The restaurant worked out dinner reservations with our two young men (age 12)... it is a beautiful and happy marina
We love Herrington. No complaints except...it seems that the slip reservation and assignment process could be improved by logging in the special requirements of vessels in a computer as "Notes" or something. It's almost always as if you are just showing up and being placed at random as opposed to a reservation made months in advance. Easy fix.
Great stay. Wonderful dock hand (Joey). All staff was most pleasant and helpful. Beautiful pool.
This is a gorgeous marina with lots of potential. Sadly however they aren’t really interested in happy customers. When we called for a reservation, my husband specifically asked for a slip with close access to the pool and restaurant because I have issues that make walking difficult. We also asked for a port side tie. We were told no problem. When we got there we were directed into a slip with a starboard side tie and not all that close as we were promised. Minutes later another boat was directed into a pier closer to the pool with a port side tie. We later spoke to those boaters and they did not ask to be closer. So what was the point of asking? No one seemed concerned, the deckhands shrugging and saying “sorry”. The dock master did give us a whopping 10% discount. Big deal. I would have preferred what we specifically asked for. It truly is a beautiful, clean marina but if you have any special needs or requests I would not recommend.
Great resort type facility
Beautiful marina . We have a great time there. Some many things to do if you come with kids . The staff was working hard to make you feel welcome.
3rd time we stayed here and still love it. Friendly staff, beautiful grounds, great beach and view and just relaxing. Can’t wait until the next time!
We love this place. Very nice and clean marina/resort and the weather was perfect. On top of it they have the best deal on diesel fuel...
Without a doubt our favorite spot. The staff is always friendly and accessible, the grounds are immaculate, and the addition of Ketch22 pushes the whole facility another step above. Will definitely be back.
It was a good place to stop on way south. Very clean and friendly.
Clean facilities. Enjoyed the pool. Loved the food at Ketch 22 and the deli across the street. Beautiful setting for weddings and events. We had a great time!
Grounds were meticulous and beautiful. Very busy marina. Shower houses and restrooms could use more than 1 cleaning a day.
Great marina! Helpful staff, clean bathrooms, great amenities, and beautiful grounds.
I highly recommend it and will be visiting again.
Great place to stay . The grounds are just beautiful. New Restsurant Katch 22 was a great experience. Can’t wait to go back.
A great experience, beautiful facility. Breakfast across the street at Chesapeake Market was great. Hop the owners of the bar and restaurant can get open by next year. A real detriment to the experience but they are contractually separate from Herrington Harbor South. Will be back just to enjoy the resort next year!
Place was great, service very good. It would have been helpful to know the office to get a power cord closed at 5P sharp. Fortunately some one let us in and worked our problem out.
Great place. Only negative for me was the mooring assignment. Explained I had a mobility impairment and asked for a side tie, which was accommodated. However, it was the tee head of Echo, a very long walk from everything.
Very nice and clean marina, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. Need to get the restaurant open. We will come back.
An awesome marina!!! We always love coming here. Looking forward to the restaurant being open again.
Marina employees were super friendly. Took care of all my dock lines, shore power, and water. As soon as I checked in they provided me a map of the hotel/marina, wifi info, passes to the pool, and keys to the bathroom. Area clean and quite. I am coming back soon!
Wonderful resort. Great facilities and Tyler remembered our favorite slip and put us there! We will be back!!
This is an A+ resort. Great facilities. Numerous clean bathrooms. The restaurant isn't open (and I'm not sure why it takes almost a year to remodel and open a new one) but the old one was great so I suspect the new one will be, too. Beautiful grounds, lots of places to cookout. The Bay's best pool. The only negative was putting our group on the transient pier in the main channel instead of in slips. We got rocked a lot. Last time I visited I had a slip. It's a pricey marina to,pay for to be stuck on the main channel in and out.
Great child friendly marina, grounds were beautiful. Harbour master and staff very friendly. Definitely a great family destination.
Wed really enjoyed our brief stay here. The pool is very nice and the bathrooms are as good as some hotels. The slip holders are some of the friendliest by far. We are looking forward to a return trip next year.
Our only complaint is that our dockhand was very inexperienced. He wasn't much help tieing up and tangled up our power cords. Just be prepared to handle business yourself.
However, this is by far one of the better marinas we have stayed at. Wish we had came sooner.
Herrington is a beautiful, well-run, constantly changing full-service marina with tons of amenities! We love the Independence Day celebration there and go every year. The fireworks are spectacular!
Herrington Harbour South was great as usual. The grounds are impeccably landscaped. It is clean, and everyone is friendly. We always enjoy our stay.
Beautiful facility, great dockhands. Only downside was poor WiFi.
We really enjoyed our stay! Restaurant and Tiki bar were closed down but they accommodated by having runners at the pool so that you could order food and drinks from deli across the street. All staff is very friendly and helpful.
