A little run down but clean. The dock staff were friendly and helpful. Easy in and out from bay. Overall not bad.

Marina has been open nearly 40 years now, we cannot control the age. But, Thank You for staying with us! We hope to see you again.

Great hospitality. Nice slip. Good directions. Met by an employee who helped with lines. Got some ice and beer, right on time. The coffee in the morning was a nice touch.

The docs were kind of old. The restaurants been closed for years. the town of Hampton wasn’t really impressive and was a $20 Uber ride. The showers were dated but OK the Wi-Fi was virtually nonexistent.
Marina Response:
Thank you for staying with us! We do our best to work with what we have, but we can't control Hampton or Uber. WiFi is all over the docks but works best if you have an external antennae on your vessel. Our restaurant is closed but that is separate from the Marina business, hopefully the Marina did a good job serving you.

The marina itself was nice, people very friendly . Easy to get Instacart to pick up groceries from Food Lion and have them delivered.

This marina I'm sure was once a great place at one time you can see It in it’s bones. The website is not representative of the actual condition of the marina. The docks are in disrepair, voltage on our pedestal was low, showers in the club house were ok, but definitely not cleaned on a daily basis they were constantly dirty and with the pool not exclusive to the marina. The showers in bath houses were filthy and exceptionally hot, air conditioning was either non existent or set high enough that you were sweating after you got out of the shower. in other areas of the marina were dirty, Wifi was spotty at best. The staff was friendly and pleasant. We would not recommend this location to a friends or others.
Marina Response:
Our facility is closing in on 40 years old, we cannot control this. Every employee does everything they can to make the experience great. Power on the docks is 120vac at all 30amp outlets (ours measures around 121-122vac with meter). The 50amp outlets are 208vac on 3 phase docks and 240vac on single phase docks (these are both industry standard throughout all of the USA). Most boats cannot distinguish between 208 and 240 but some with pass through inverters are sensitive. If you had a power issue using 208vac which appeared as low when expecting 240vac, we certainly could have relocated you. The mini-split air conditioning in O-dock remote bathhouse was down in 2022 but also replaced with a new unit in 2022. It is unfortunate your visit was during the downtime. We do have 3 bathhouse buildings to choose from. We have WiFi repeaters throughout the Marina, fiberglass is an insulator so trying to use devices inside your boat requires an external antennae on your vessel. Thank you for staying with us, we try our best and wish we could have done better.

We stayed at Salt Ponds Marina for over a week while waiting for a changeover of crew. It’s a beautiful spot, very convenient to the Bay, and is within easy walking distance of a beach and boardwalk. The staff were helpful and the bathrooms clean. I’ll definitely visit again when I’m passing through Hampton. Kate s/v Green Dolphin

Stumbled across this marina last fall. Very casual atmosphere and a very pleasant staff willing to go out of their way to help in any way possible.

Very nice Marina with excellent marsh views and good clean facilities. Well located as a jumping off point for the Southern Bay. Nearby public beach. Try Heavenly Pizza 30min walk away (or quick Uber ride) which has great beer and excellent pizza, plus plenty of local character!
