The staff was super friendly. The pool and jacuzzi were great, but the location is the only reason to stay here if you're going to the Ohana Festival. It is walking distance, but also right next to the harbor restaurants and shops, including a little market/liquor store. The issue with the hotel itself is that it is pretty run down. The carpet (at least in our room) had many stains on it, paint was peeling, the door didn't really fit and the light from the hallway was shining in between the cracks, so much so that it lit up our room at night. The walls are basically hollow and we could hear everything going on the the next rooms. Considering we were there for the festival and just needed a place to lay our head down at night, we definitely would stay here again for that only. However, the beds were NOT comfortable. They seriously need a better mattress or mattress pad. The price was fair based on what the surrounding hotels were charging (I actually stayed 7 nights at a "better" hotel the week before this stay) and this rate was about $100 less per night. The fact that we could walk to all the restaurants AND the festival, it was totally worth it.

The hotel location is perfect. We attended the Ohana Festival. Many good restaurants nearby and easy to walk to the festival. The rooms are dated but are clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. It is a great place to get a good night’s sleep and recharge for another day of music.

I spent many summers at this hotel as a kid, so when my wife and I were visiting California at the end of August this year I thought it would be fun to stay there. I have given this review five stars, because of the friendliness of the staff, location and the overall condition of the facility. Yes it’s true that you won’t be staying in a super modern room, but our room was very clean and everything was in good working condition. We paid just under $200.00 a night and had a view of the harbor and I must say it was absolutely gorgeous. We considered staying at other properties, but for $170.00 a night compared to $600.00+ for an ocean view pretty much anywhere else along the coast this place is a fantastic deal. We felt very safe during our stay and the breakfast was very good. The property is very close to a beautiful beach and there are numerous good restaurants near by. My wife and I are planning another trip to California in the near future and we’ll definitely be staying at the Marina Inn.

Double queen room for travel partner and self. Rates fair for area. Good location with good restaurants marina and beaches in walking distance. A spot to throw your gear, but nothing to spend time at the hotel for. Noisy second floor neighbor; use wall ac for white sound countering effort. Clean, and felt safe parking car there. VERY good bfast, lunch and dinner spots across streets, none of which were on their "recommended list", however, the front desk person was helpful.

If I could give this hotel a zero review I would. We arrived and checked in only one staff member to check in a long line of guests. They did not tell us at check in we had no hot water and the water was going to be shut off the following day. They don’t provide any service to the rooms, you have to pick up towels In The lobby. The room was not cleaned or sanitized per there advertisement. I dropped something on the Floor and looked under the bed and there was empty coke cans and trash under both beds. The shower had hair I. It and the used soap from the prior guest. When I went to the lobby and asked if they would please clean the room since we were staying for 5 days they said they only clean it if you stay for a week. I explained to the housekeeping supervisor how dirty the room was and she argued with we along with the other lady at the front desk. She finally agreed to go in and clean up the trash but did nothing else to clean the room. The last day we extended our stay. The man at the front desk told me it was cheaper to book through my orbitz app on my phone so I followed his instructions. Sure enough we get a knock on the door the Following day to tell us we had to move rooms. After spending over 1,000 dollars they wanted us out of our pool view room. We ended up leaving and they said they refunded us which they didn’t. Now I am working to get my funds back. We have stayed at this hotel for many years but will never return. This property is poorly managed and very dirty. The patios were not cleaned in front of the rooms and the rooms are not cleaned properly.
