We have never had such an experience. In every case harbor masters and staff have been very accommodating and have made us feel quite welcome. Some marina's are nicer, i.e. more elaborate, than others but the staff have pretty much always been very nice. We generally find that most folks treat one as they are treated.

FWIW...
