This motel is well located in Little Italy and is perfect for visiting downtown San Diego and the waterfront. It's only a few minutes walk to Harbor Blvd. on the waterfront and about 15 minutes walk to Seaport Village. Along the way you'll find Hornblower and Flagship bay cruises and the Coronado Ferry, the Star of India, the Maritime Museum,... More

This is the perfect location for visiting shore line historical ships, little Italy and waterfront dining. The motel desk staff varies according to the time of day. The midday staff is not too well trained and has just memorized the legal aspects of the job. The other shifts are very helpful with recommendations and accommodates needs. We will return to...

Easily best price for downtown. 3rd party websites try to push the hostels around East Village or Gaslamp but this area is much nicer, right on the harbor-front, excellent staff and you can walk almost anywhere. Uber is really cheap around the area too so it's an easy trip to/from the airport, Hillcrest, etc.. Always the first place I book... More

This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed there on 11/24 for two nights on second floor with a great view of the water. Prior to that we stayed at the Ramada Downtown and let me tell you... The Marina Inn was much better, especially for the price. Front Desk Staff, Michelline, handled us with great care and... More

We had a stopover in San Diego, and this hotel was perfectly located, with just the necessary amenities, but was very clean and confortable enough.. and the best, the price was unbeatable for any other in the zone.

This was a good, clean economical place to stay, close to Little Italy, close to the water, and close to the airport. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. I took the city bus to the airport, which was cheap and easy and quick. It's a basic economy motel in a great location.

Small fridge and microwave were a def plus. Being my first time to san diego I had no idea what part of town would be best to stay in. This place turned out to be a great location. Bathroom has updated granite, downfall is WiFi isnt the greatest and theres no cable. Room is totally worth it for someone like... More

The staff is really kind and helpful. The location is absolutely amazing. When I check in a hotel I usually look for places with good wifi. Although the wifi crashed for 2h at one day, during all the rest of my stay (1 week) the wifi worked perfectly. The only down side would be that there is no smoking room... More
