“Loved the Upgrade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Marina Inn. We booked a regular king room but were upgraded to a two bedroom suite with living room, fireplace, and full kitchen with a great view of the inter-coastal waterway. The staff was friendly and professional, the fitness room is decent, I can imagine that the pool would get crowded in the summer but it’s only a short drive to the beach. There is an indoor pool as well. There are restaurants and shopping within a short distance.

If you want to have five star service and be treated like a high roller but pay a price not much higher then a Day's Inn, then this is the place. Excellent service, great golf, nice restaurant. But just be aware, you are not on the beach (they have their own beach but need to drive/shuttle).

I was in the area on business and was somewhat disappointed at the distance from other hotels and amenities in the area. However, I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the quality of the hotel and the service. Very pleasant, great staff, very accomodating. Kudos and thanks to Deborah Kress for returning items left in the room at no charge. Will defintely condsider staying there again on my next trip to MB.

Hotel staff is wonderful! Room had a great view. I wanted luxury and I was pleased. Only "wishes" would be bigger tub. 4 star hotel with the smallest tub I've ever used in my life! Also, bigger TV. I know you don't go on vaca to watch TV, but I like to watch movies at night and my TV at home is bigger! Loved the location and loved the service. I would visit again despite the tub/tv size. Also, I was nervous that the bed would be hard because of other reviews, but ours was awesome and comfortable!

A little off the beaten path but still close to everything. Overlooks the intercoastal waterway but easy access to the beach with shuttle service. Beautiful grounds. Spacious rooms, excellent service, awesome pool. Everything about this hotel is perfect.

Overlooking the Intracoastal, the Golf course and Marina, sitting in the outdoor hottub and taking in the sunset, elicits Ahhhhhs and reminds one of what a vacation is all about. While close to the beach, with easy access, and shopping and attracitions nearby, we always looked forward to coming 'home' to our spacious, balconied suite, a glass of wine on our balcony, an unwinding dip in the hottup at sunset watching boats go by and a nice, relaxing dinner, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist activities. And, oh, those luxurious sheets to turn into.

Staff was most responsive, public areas and our unit spotless and the food both on the adventurous and delicious side. Looking forward to many returns.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Marina Inn many times on business trips. I have always had a wonderful stay and the service has been outstanding. Clean well appointed rooms and the grounds are very nice to explore. Right on the Intercoastal waterway and close to everything.
