“Top hotel in a great central location to L A”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

My family and I stayed for 3 nights and we couldn't have asked for a more tranquil and relaxing setting. The rooms were spacious with a fridge and microwave. The heated pool and spa were great after a busy day sight seeing. What makes this place special is the little extras such as tea and coffee available 24 hours, free buffet breakfast, water flavoured with citrus on tap all the time and the business facilities. All the staff were very welcoming and informative. Thanks for a great stay If staying in LA choose this hotel.

We had a great stay here, the rooms are very clean, comfortable spacious and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Tfhe price is good and the loction is good too. It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach and then you can walk along the beach front to venice and muscle beach. There are plenty of restaurants around, Thai , Italian, Vietnamese and American. The car park has free parking and you are quiet close to some good bus routes if you want to go to Hollywood etc. There is also a bus to the airport which is a 5 to 10 minute walk away. The breakfast is adaquate, if I had only one complaint it would be the plastic knives and forks an plastic plates, but that really is a minor considering the price and location. We didn't use the pool but it did look good, not huge but big enough to cool down in and the jacuzzi was very inviting too. The free wifi is another added bonus. I wouldn't hestitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the lounge area and away from the noisey road.

We have stayed here often. The hotel has been renovated in the last year. Every time we come the rooms and beds are cheerfully decorated and clean. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. You can catch a bus taking you other parts of LA close to the hotel. Be aware that the hotel faces a street with a lot of traffic so you should request a room facing away from the street. The pool is small but good enough for cooling off. The breakfast is average but sufficient for a simple breakfast and there are many restaurants nearby. The parking is free which is a real plus in this area.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't face Washington Blvd. and are higher up.

This hotel is nice, great staff, nice atmosphere, nice location, its about a 20 minute walk to Venice Beach. They have a nice pool and great hot jacuzzi. Its a very pleasant place to stay. Staff were very helpfull and there are nice places to eat close by. Breakfast wasn't anything special and most of the time you had to wait for a table or just stand and eat as its a very small area for breakfast. The rooms are quite nice, with flatscreen TV and clean bathrooms which gets cleaned every day. The only problem I had was I got bed bugs the first night staying here and it lasted my whole holiday in the USA which was three weeks. I think they should get rid of all their beds and linen and spend money on new ones so this doesnt happen to other people. Other than that the hotel is nice.

Room Tip: I stayed in the double room which has two king size beds, which was great with nice space and nice b...

The Inn at Marina del Rey is a lovely hotel inland on a busy thoroughfare and looks quite ordinary. What a surprise when we checked in and went up to our room! The pool is upstairs in a lush tropical setting in the middle of the building. While we did not use the pool, it appeared very inviting. Our room was on the front of the building, but, although it was on a busy street, we slept with the window opened and were not bothered by traffic noise. It was spotless and the bed was most comfortable. The complimentary hot breakfast was very good with quite a variety of breakfast foods. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to this hotel during our annual visit to Marina del Rey.

I recently stayed at the Inn at Marina del Ray, and was very pleased. Vaurisio, the assistant general manager, was knowledgeable about the area, and accommodated an early check-in, even though I forgot to book one. The room was great, and the location couldn't be beat!
