    I was looking for a place to stay for one night in the North End and wow! Pricy! Mariner House is for people in the maritime trade or sea going military on the road, or waiting to catch a ship, and provides a no frills approach to housing. The room has a double bed, a partial view of downtown Boston and it's own bathroom. The staff's friendly and helpful, and the room with breakfast is only $65 a night, or less than half of anywhere else I could find. And it's right next door to Paul Revere's house and is within one mile of over 100 authentic Italian restaurants. I'm coming back again soon.

    I very much enjoyed my stay here. This is a quaint bed and breakfast type place for those in the military. I met a friend here for a weekend and the stay was amazing. Madeline who works the front desk is a great host. I think she pretty much lives here because she was there waiting on everyone morning and evening. I even caught a glimpse of her dozing off on one of the old cozy couches in the living room. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is made to order and awesome. Make sure you get there before 9:30am though, that is when they stop serving. We came down at 9:50 but the cook re opened just for us. Wow. The location is fabulous, right in the heart of the North End. There are a ton of great restaurants here. You can walk across the bridge to Fanueil Hall and market area with 10 minutes. It is close to the oldest bar and a few Irish pubs as well and street performers. Madeline even let us keep our bags behind the desk after we checked out and before heading to the airport so we could walk around. I will most likely stay here each time I come to Boston. Love it!

    My hubby and  I  was in boston in the area. So we decided to stay at the merchant mariners house. this place seemed more like a bedb and breakfast to me. its nice for a short term stay but as far as long term its a no go. there's is no air conditioning my hubby and I were sweating and was told we had to just open the windows no wifi or other amenities that most hotels would offer. it was nice place to stay but not great.

    Amazing location, great value & friendly staff! We love staying here-rooms are very clean and comfy. Can't beat the location-right in the heart of the North End. We were actually 'stranded' here during the lockdown after the Boston Marathon bombings, and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Our absolute first choice for a Boston stay!

    HEAD'S UP:  Mariner's House requires that you have an active Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC) or maritime retiree status to reserve a room.

    That being said, I was very pleased with my time here.  I stayed on two separate occasions while traveling around the East Coast.

    Their rate's are cheaper than nearby hotels, and about on-par with hostels.  However, most hostels in the area offer you a bed in a dorm-room for their cheap rates.  At Mariner's House you get your own room and bathroom for the same price.  The right choice is clear.

    The history of this place is alluring.  I had my eye on Mariner's House long before I was ever able to stay there.  This place has been offering accommodations to seafarers for over 165 years!!  I wanted to be part of that history.

    The interior of the House speaks to its past.  The walls are covered with half models of bygone square-riggers, oil paintings of ship's Captains, and many leather-bound books.  Inside the rooms, photos on the walls also hark back to the age of sail with black-and-white pictures of schooners, fishermen, and proud merchant seamen.

    The rooms themselves are simple.  No less than you'd get at a mid-range hotel.  It was more than I was used to, coming from a historic schooner in Maine.  I was looking for a place to shower, shave, and rest my head.  My room gave me that, plus a TV and internet.

    It is not uncommon to find the front room filled with mariners chatting about their ships, cargo, or ports-of-call in the afternoon and evening.  It's a good place to learn if one is willing to listen.

    Last, the location is awesome.  The building is on a cobblestone backstreet in the North End.  It is surrounded, squeezed, innundated by italian restaurants.  The entire neighborhood is bright and lively well into the night (and often the next morning).  If you're looking to have a good time, there are many incredible options a stones-throw away.

    I'll be going back to Mariner's House for the rest of my life.

    Just finished a 12 night stay at the Mariners House. Open only to professional Mariners and Maritime Servicemembers and retirees this place was a wonderful find in the heart of Boston's North End. It's right next to Paul Revere's house directly on the freedom trail. The House offers singles/doubles and a few suites. Each room has a  private bath and is very cozy and very clean. One of the great aspects of our stay was the staff. Free hot made to order breakfasts are served every day. Al cooks here five days per week and couldn't be a nicer guy. He and the other cook (can't remember his name) work hard and breakfast is very extensive. The room cleaners are so kind and do a great job. Shout out to Rosa who made my son...injured in the military, a bunch of homemade Italian cookies. The desk clerks and manager are so kind and willing to answer any questions.
    The inn is steeped in history and includes a dinung room, two beautiful living rooms and even a chapel. Finally the location is priceless. Surrounded by fine dining, famous pastry shops and historical sights makes it hard to beat. And the price!! 65 to 110 per night. A miracle in Boston!!!!

    I did not stay here.

    I came in and sat in the front room while I waited for a friend. I thought I was in the library, where we were supposed to meet.

    The man working there welcomed me and was very friendly. He told me where the restroom was and actually that I was in the wrong sitting room if I were meeting him in the library.

    Clean place, comfy chairs, with lots of games and books. Great history and old pictures and is right near Paul Revere's house. Amazing area.

    You get what you pay for. Great deal and you are staying in the heart of Boston. A post left by Zachary left out some key details. It is also for US Navy  and Coast Guard. This is also situated right next to Paul Reveres house...it doesn't get any cooler than this.
