    Nice location. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. All slips are transient. Restrooms clean but men's room has 1 shower and 1 toilet. We were expecting a little more from the Town. A mile walk to the Piggly Wiggly. Wifi could have been better. Overall not bad.

    Just about the best location in charming Oriental, right in the middle of town within feet of restaurants, coffee bar and provisions. Staff is friendly; VHF instructions and docking assistance were excellent. Depth varies considerably and unpredictably with wind tides on the Neuse River; my slip neighbor's Pacific Seacraft 37 with just under 5' draft was rubbing on the bottom. Usually this clears up when the wind shifts. There is a motel, restaurant and tiki bar on the marina property. It got a little loud with a live band on Halloween night but that's not the norm. Oriental is a friendly, laid back community that loves sailors and this marina is right in the heart of things.
