Several marinas to mention...
Charleston Megadock - even though the dock was 1/2 mile from shore, the dock quality was excellent, the showers were private rooms, the bathrooms were kept in excellent condition and the people were nice. Plus they had a free shuttle to take you to various parts of Charleston.
Vero Beach Municipal Marina - Facilities weren't as nice, but it's a haven for cruisers with lots of really interesting people to talk to and activities going on. Plus, Vero has a free bus service that can take you to the grocery, mall, movies - all around the region - and it stops right at the marina. The price was also one of the best in FL.
Cooley's Landing (Fort Lauderdale) - It's a municipal marina and the price was right. The docks are fixed and there's a big tidal swing, but the facilities are nice, the dockmaster is nice and there are some great people who stay here. You're walking distance to the bus terminal and to the kid's museum. Just one place that I had a good positive experience at.
Beaufort Town Docks - There is nothing really special about this place except that they still have loaner cars for transients. This was great for trips to West Marina and to get groceries. Plus they give you tokens for one free beer per person at the attached pub. The dockmaster was pretty abrupt, but you have to love the loaner cars.
Now.. the list of marinas NOT to go to is much longer....
