The property is beautiful and in a convenient location! The Front Desk staff is helpful and welcoming. The Bell Staff is always in good spirits and available for anything we need - even if we need to get our vehicle right away (again!). The facilities are a perfect venue for our events.

Florence, South Carolina9 contributions
This is a very nice resort. Clean, safe, efficient, and the setting is spectacular. especially if you book a room up on one of the upper floors. There's a marina and water view. There are only a few drawbacks: it's isolated, so if you want to eat at a restaurant besides the bar in the hotel itself for dinner, you'll need to go next door to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, which many find a bit too pricey. The other is if there is a private social function with a bar (for example, a conference social at a convention in the hotel), expect to pay about $8 for a regular canned beer and about $12 for a regular mixed drink. That's about $100 for 4 drinks per couple.

Treated like a valued customer from the moment we pulled up until the moment we pulled away to return home. All the staff was friendly and helpful. We did eat in resort one night and prices are very close to outside restaurants and very good. Must Stay if looking for a enjoyable vacation.

My wife and I always went to this hotel for years due to their standards but they have gone completely down hill. We paid for a king club suite and it was the worst room we ever stayed in there. Everything was worn out and out dated. The bed was uncomfortable due to the mattress being worn out. They didn't have one comfortable chair in the entire suite. Upon checking out, the attendant didn't even ask us how our stay was. It will be the last time we stay here.

I'm responsible for making arrangements for a delegation of 13 attendees from North Carolina to visit the Marina Inn in late February. I've been fortunate to work with Ashley and Tricia in the reservations office, and I have to say I've never encountered a more helpful, supportive and knowledgeable reservations staff anywhere. And I've been making these arrangements for the past 6 years across the country. Tricia and Ashley are without question exceptional in their service outreach, their knowledge about various arrangement options, and their resilience in making sure the Marina Inn could accommodate our group. I did not feel at all like I was just another prospective guest. These professionals made me feel valued as a client. They always made time to answer my innunmerable questions. And they did so with constant Southern charm! Although I'm making arrangements for a business conference, I would not hesitate to return to this hotel for a personal vacation . . . . but only if Tricia or Ashley are available to help me!
