I stayed here for 2 nights - one was on a weeknight and the other on a weekend.
The best 2 things about this hotel were it's close location to the Marina/Cruise Ship Terminal and the service. The rest was kind of...average.
Since the hotel was close to the water it also was close to the airport. You could hear airplane noise all day and night, but I got used to it pretty fast. You could also hear the trolley/Amtrak when it went by from time to time.
The hotel itself was fairly clean, but the bed was average and the bathroom was the same size as the bedroom. Not necessary I think - although it would be excellent for wheelchair accessible guests - as it was a room on the ground floor and had a good set up.
The service at the front desk was excellent - always friendly and helpful.
Make sure to check your rates though - on my weekend night I was charged a higher rate and then the next weekend night I wanted to see if I could get cheaper so I went down the street to the Pacific Inn - they told me they could not give me a good rate, but they could give me a good rate back at the Marina Inn. It wasn't exactly what I was wanting to hear because I had just been charged $20+ more at the hotel the night before. I guess it pays to bargain - because these hotels seem to reduce rates if you mention something.
