Be aware, this is a very basic motel in a suspicious surrounding. The room was clean with new beds and bed spreads, but the bathroom was very old and the kitchen furnitures were run out. There was no airconditioning in our room, so it got very, very hot. No windows to be opened. The owner tries hard to do a... More

Even the name makes no sense. There is no marine base and the ocean is 100 miles away in Mexico. I stayed here in August 2012. Apparently the motel has changed hands and I thought that there could only be improvement. The only discernible improvement appears to be a new coat of green paint to replace the peeling coat of...

This was the only motel/hotel that had vacancy's the night I drove into Ajo. The room was not clean, the refrigerator didn't work and had hair in it. The shower/tub was cracked and not clean. The heater was loud and there was a gap around the frame where you can see outside. These rooms are mobile homes with a facade... More

I had a conference to attend in Ajo. I called the Marine Motel, and made a reservation for three nights. I asked for a confirmation number and the total price for a three night stay. I was given the rate of $129.98 for the three nights. When I checked in, I was required to pay then instead of upon checkout.... More

Dear Sandy, Thank you for staying at Marine Motel. When you called for reservations, you asked to reserve one bed and Harry gave you the correct price for three night stay. But, when you arrived at the motel, you asked for King size bed, which is higher cost than the Queen size bed. Thus, Harry had to charge you the... More

This is the best cheap motel room we have stayed in on our 2-week trip through Arizona. Rooms are bright and pretty big. Our room had two sinks in a big counter-top area in the bathroom area - great for fixing an in-room meal or sack lunch. Shower was good. Room had microwave, fridge, hair dryer (old, classic, but serviceable)... More

The room was like a cell. The sleeping area was 13'x11',the bathroom floorspace was 4.5'x2.5',the sink/mirror alcove was 6'x4'. Everything in the room was old and cheap. There was barely any water pressure. I had to press my head against the shower wall in order to get close enough to the weak spray in order to wash the shampoo from... More

The room met the basic requirements. TV, heater, spacious room etc. This is the cheapest one in Ajo and nothing to complain about. There was no one in my adjacent room. Not sure if you can hear the sound if someone is there in the next room.

Room was basic but very clean - staff was very friendly and helpful - wifi came in very strong. It suited our needs for 1 adult and 2 children. We forgot an Ipod and every effort was made to return it to us quickly. Great location for visiting Organ Pipe National Monument and for hiking in the desert.
