Which of these 3 hotels would you choose?

Hello! We are visiting in April for 5 nights, but only spending 2 days in Marina del Rey. It is our first time visiting MDR. After reading reviews of all of these 3 hotels, they all have fairly good reviews and I still can't decide which one to choose. They are about the same amount of money and offer almost the same amenities. We are pretty easy going and we know that they aren't luxurious places, as long as they are clean and in convenient locations we will be happy. We will be out and about exploring most of the time anyway. Any preference??

Marina International - mid price of the 3, you also get 2 free water bottles, cookies at check in, and free parking.

Marina del Rey Hotel - cheapest of the 3, free parking.

Foghorn Harbor - Most expensive of the 3, continental breakfast, free parking.

Thanks for your help!!

Why did you choose Marina del Rey? It's not the most convenient location for visiting LA.

What is your actual budget per night for a hotel, and what will you be visiting while here?

Actaully, Marina Del Rey might not be the best place to stay. It's a beautiful place to visit, but very focused around the marina and resort/convention type hotels. Not easy to walk to something other than the hotel. For my money, I'd go for a couple of nights in Santa Monica. Same beauty, but lots of stuff to walk around and do.

Marina del Rey Hotel is planning on renovating later this year, Until they do I'd stay away. Staff are nice but the hotel is run down, dirty and in need of updating. Walls are paper thin and you hear everything next door and above. staines on furniture, mold etc... is not uncommon. If you can live with that, the location can't be beat... Try the Courtyard or best western plus which just recently renovated
