This will be the 4th year that we will stay at Marina Inn and Suites. We started staying there for just 3 weeks and now we are staying there 2 1/2 months. That is testimony in itself, but the location, the staff and the weather are all outstanding. The staff is so friendly, that we feel like family. If you...

I was going away for the weekend with my Son and this inn was within our budget since we were in San Diego for a Charger game . From the minute i called to reserve the room , the customer services was amazing! Jamal told me how to get there , what was around, ways to travel through the city....

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Jamal is an awesome team member and really enjoys delivering his brand of exceptional customer service. I'm glad you were able to experience that first hand! I'm not sure if you were here to cheer on the Chargers or the "other guys," but the Chargers delivered a WIN, and that made our...

I like Motels, as a taste of Americana, and have no issue with them being dated and frayed as long as they are clean. This one however is a smelly, sticky-floored, grimy establishment with dubiously stained furniture and a bathroom that reminded me of that from a 1970s holiday camp. It's awful. We christened it the "Breaking Bad Inns &...

We stayed here for two nights (a Friday and Saturday). It was the cheapest hotel in the area we wanted. It's a block away from the water, 1 mile from the Midway, and 1.5 from the Gaslamp District. Anything closer to the Gaslamp District seemed to be at least double the price. The hotel parking lot is an absolute joke,...

This hotel is in a great location and the staff were very nice, but that's about all it has going for it. The lobby is cute and has a beach cottage feel, but it does not represent the rooms. There is NOT enough parking for the number of rooms they have and the lot is so small it's extremely hard...

I expected more from this property after seeing their website. They are right next door do a closed down hotel, located on the corner of 2 major roads and the hotel doesn't look great from the outside. Having said that, the rooms were comfortable and clean, the staff were friendly and the hotel is conveniently located if you need to...

Pretty good motel, location is good, not far from the gaslamp and little Italy, free parking and wifi was good. Beer the harbor and the USs midway museum. Shower in the room is pretty old. For the money we paid we were definitely satisfied

We were originally booked onto the sister motel, the Pacific Inn & Suites, but we liked San Diego so much decided to stay another few days. As the Pacific was booked we stayed in the Marin's Inn. Spotlessly clean, great location & staff were very helpful. Definitely stay here if we ever return to San Diego.

Rooms are nice and clean!! It's nothing fancy, but a good place to sleep, because with so many things to do within walking distance that's all you will do in the room. Beaches within 15 minutes drive, bay area views.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We felt a bit unsafe due to not being able to close the windows at the back of the room. We booked a suite for the kids but they ended up staying in the room with us anyhow, as the hotel backs into what looks like abandoned houses. Was a bit freaky. Advertised free...
