Great hotel! Kinda isolated behind businesses, but that's a plus. There's a dock behind the hotel so noise is average by bystanders taking a jog, bike riding, or someone checking on their boat. Customer service is 50/50. Checking in was great, checking out took awhile. All in all I recommend this hotel. If you don't mind the noise level, taking... More

The Marina Village Inn is close to the company I work for and was the 'go to' hotel back in the 1990s but has fallen out of favor with my company. Normally most of the people who visit Alameda from my company go to the Hawthorne Suites, which isn't very good either, but it was full so I took a... More

This hotel was a little out of the way but an affordable option for a family visiting San Francisco. The website is very misleading. It says "Deluxe 2 Bedroom Suite". When you open the description of the room, it says 2 room. When we got to our room it was a 1 bedroom with a king size bed and a... More

I booked this hotel through Travelocity’s Secret Hotels, which is like Hotwire so I didn’t know what hotel I was getting until I finished booking it. I looked on Tripadvisor and was wary based on the mediocre reviews, however I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is located in an out-of-the-way area next to the marina but it’s also close to...

Well, I've never reviewed a hotel before, but I'm sorry, but this was the worst place I have ever stayed. The staff is nice but they have no say whatsoever. If there is a problem, you have to speak with the very elusive manager. I came in on a Wednesday night. It was unusually hot for the bay area. I... More

Our stay at the Marina Hotel was the worst stay ever. Booked our room through hotelplusportal.com. Booked a room for 4 people with 2 beds. When we arrived our reservation only showed 1 person for 1 bed. They found an alternative room, 1 king and a sofa pull-out. The pull-out was the size of a love seat or a little... More

Bumped out of our original reservation at another hotel, we stumbled across this gem only 2 days before our trip. Located right on the bay in Alameda, CA it was not only close to the family we were visiting in Alameda, but just a short jaunt into San Fran for all our sight-seeing activities. Each room had a beautiful deck... More

Stayed for three nights in April for a medical appointment in Oakland. Not really located near anything to walk to. However a short drive will find some places to eat. My only real complaint was my room reeked of vomit. I stayed the week after Spring break so draw your own conclusions. I brought the smell to management's attention and... More

The hotel was grubby and poorly maintained. We turned down the first room we were offered because of this and because it was small. Were those ancient bloodstains on the concrete landing outside? The lobby area was poorly furnished and had the atmosphere of a train station waiting-room. Who was that rather sinister figure eating a take-out meal in the... More

There isn't a lot of hotels to choose from in Alameda and this one is the closest to Forbidden Island the Tiki bar on Lincoln. The price online is considerably less than when you call the hotel directly. We arrived at around sevenish on a Saturday night. The room had already been charged to my credit card. The front desk...
