I would never stay at Ballard's Marina again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. Communication upon arrival was poor (first misdirected then told port side tie when it was a starboard side tie). There was no sign of a dockmaster. You will not find any "amenities" showers, laundry, etc. Most importantly, there are commercial fishing boats right behind where we were docked with several chum barrels scenting the breeze. One night it was so bad we had to stay below. I had to give one star to submit this review - wanted to give no stars. Unacceptable!!
