“GR8 Value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

12 miles north on 101 from Carmel, Del Monte off ramp (also 7 miles north of Monterey), in the town of Marina is a retro 50s era vintage motel: The old Marina Inn. When I travel and need a good rest the only important items are: clean & safe, quiet and a good bed. You park in front of your room at this single story motel. Everything except the beds are old and everything is clean and works. Little niceties included are kleenex, shampoo, a real shower door, and quality TP. In high season mid September 2012 I paid $63 for a single king bed room on Thursday and $83 on Friday. This is not a place to relax and hangout because there are no amenities such as pool, restaurant, or interesting immediate surroundings (that's why it is max 2 stars); it's a place to spend the night comfortably and inexpensively.

Room Tip: Stay in rooms 8 or higher for quietest location.

The Old Marina Inn is an older family-owned motel in Marina, which is a working class town. The rooms are very large, could probably use updating, but are very clean, and the rooms that we rented included refrigerator and microwave. The owners are very helpful and moved us to other rooms when we found that we had neglected to select non-smoking rooms. A walk of one mile took us to a bluff overlooking the ocean where we saw dolphins diving in the surf. There is also a breakfast place within walking distance that we would have driven a long distance for -- Tommy's Restaurant, on Cypress. Monterey was a very quick and easy drive, as was Carmel. We would not recommend this motel to those who seeking a resort-like atmosphere or up-scale accommodations, but it was perfect for us.
