What we liked best about the Marina Inn is their staff - unfailingly helpful, friendly, and welcoming at all times, from the front desk to the parking valets to the catering staff. We just returned from a stay there for a business conference (plus a couple extra fun days added on).
The atmosphere of the hotel overall is plush and elegant but not stuffy, and the rooms themselves are simply but very nicely appointed with super comfortable beds (ok, the pillows could have been a little bigger for a king-size bed, but now I'm nitpicking). The bathroom was gorgeous marble and tile with separate tub and shower, very spacious. In fact, the bathroom was nearly as big as the entire hotel room from our last stay in Manhattan (no exaggeration). Our room faced the Intracoastal Waterway, and we were able to watch boats, jumping fish, and even a wedding from our balcony.
Our experiences with the restaurants, especially the Anchor Cafe, a great spot to sit and enjoy the breeze and a nice drink, were also very enjoyable. Good food, reasonably priced for hotel hotel restaurants in a resort town, served by nice, friendly people.
Room internet service was consistent and reliable, no problems at all.
There's a very nice supermarket across the highway if you need one, and it's really a short drive into MB proper and any kind of restaurant you could possibly want.
If you don't need to be in the craziness down on the boardwalk, and you're looking for a nice, quiet, relaxing hotel with plenty of amenities at a reasonable price, this is the place for you. We're looking forward to returning in October!
