My wife and I stayed at the Marina Inn during our stay in San Diego. Quincy helped us get checked in, answered questions we had and was extremely helpful and professional. A+ on service. The location is nice, right by the marina and within walking distance of Little Italy.

This hotel is a complete dive. I doubt if even low end prostitutes would dain to use the hotel hourly. I was checked into room 104. The room is very small, musty smell, tired looking room with a broken bed. On closer examination of the room, I noticed bed bugs on one of the pillows. Needless to say, I demanded... More

Absolutely loved the room. Comfy beds, rooms where clean. The location is great!! Could go out and enjoy the bay, close to diners.. or if you prefer to take something back to the room they have a spacious fridge and microwave. Couldn't ask for more. Price was awesome!! I've paid double for a lot less. Won't make that mistake again!!

I chose this place because it was close to the San Diego airport and it was half the price of other nearby hotels. I only stayed in my room for a few hours as I arrived pretty late and left early the next day but I had a comfortable and quiet sleep

Stayed in the family suite with my wife and two small children. We liked the fact that there was a separate small room for the kids. The location is great. The harbor is a two blocks away and there's actually a pretty nice view from the property. There is a beautiful park across the street that has a giant fountain... More

The Marina Inn & Suites is located in the Little Italy section of San Diego. You can walk to the waterfront to eat, walk up to the eating district and your within minutes of the San Diego Zoo. The rooms are comfortable with good cable TV. The only drawback is the air conditioning, it's a swamp cooler, and there's no... More

Located right near the waterfront- many fun restaurants to walk to. The management and staff were great, especially Shanna. Booking.com's service was horrible but Shanna helped us deal with their mistakes. The room was very quaint with good amenities. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Conveniently located just a short walk to waterfront, several restaurants nearby. 5 min drive to airport. Management and staff were very helpful, Michael was very accommodating when a cancelled flight affected our booking. The bed was very comfortable, and even though it is located on a busy intersection (part of the convenient location), we shut the windows and turned on... More

Okay room... Shower ran all night, and bathroom counter top was broken. Electrical outlets were broken as well. Great view of the harbor though and walk to the embarcadero. .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Dear Valued Guest, I am happy to hear you enjoyed the view of the harbor from your hotel room. That is one of the many great things this specific location has to offer. However, I regret to hear that you did not enjoy your room as much as the view. The next time you stay with us, let the front... More
