Staff was great. Dockhands were right there as we approached the marina and were very helpful. Bathroom and showers were clean. Could use some fresh paint. The pool could have used some attention. We stayed one night for the Fireworks and it was exactly what we needed. We will be back next year for a overnight.

Great spot to weather a storm and also have a bite to eat. Always a beautiful trip up the river. Lotsa duck poop on the unused docks though where some transients tie up.

Don is awesome, but property needs updating and infusion of capital.

Very friendly staff, nice area, easy walk to restaurants and Riverwalk. The marina is a little bit dated and could use some paint and refurbishment of the showers

We came to head to the casino we come every year the casino was not great. Not many tables open and the ones that were were to packed to get in. The staff at the marina are always friendly and helpful. shuttle to and from the casinos. Restaurant/ bar was open and food was not bad at all for a quick bit and a cocktail. See you guys next season.

Good friendly help when we arrived. Pool is nice but in general the facilities need some TLC. Most concerning was that no one , not even restaurant staff was wearing masks. Unusual here in CT.

The marina is in decay. WiFi does not work. Restaurant is closed. Docks are in poor condition. Staff was great. Friendly and helpful. No fuel. Supposedly tanks are condemned. Hope someone buys the place and breaths life back into it!

Staff was very attentive and friendly. Pool area reasonably clean but could use a little attention. Would be beneficial if the gas dock and restaurant was open.

The Marina was really nice at one time but do problems in management or something it has suffered. With a lot of work it can be great again. They did transport us to the casinos and to a restaurant. I hope solve their problems.

This marina would be a five star if the current owner would sell the marina and allow someone with money make the necessary improvements as well as fill the restaurant with a tenant. Great location near the casinos. Don the manager as well as the staff do there best to make your stay comfortable. Don is a great manager.

American Wharf was convenient, safe and welcoming. When presented with one tiny issue, they resolved it fairly.

by Richard l. - Verified user on Jun 23, 2019
Marina is nice but tired. You can tell no one has paid much attention to it as of late. No restaurant or bar open as stated. There is literally nothing to do there. The pool area is ok. Not many chairs and again aged. Met some very kind people there that really hope it can be brought back to its glory days. For now not a destination. Just a good parking spot for the casino.
