The Marina Village Inn is close to the company I work for and was the 'go to' hotel back in the 1990s but has fallen out of favor with my company. Normally most of the people who visit Alameda from my company go to the Hawthorne Suites, which isn't very good either, but it was full so I took a chance on the Marina Village Inn for the first time in about 10 years.
I arrived late and the lady at the front desk was on the phone. Nobody else was in the lobby. I stood there for 5 minutes while she talked on the phone right in front of me. She barely looked up or acknowledged that I was there.
The room was dark and the amenities were out of date. The bed was at least comfortable.
Bathroom was below average. Toiletries were below average and smelled cheap.
The free breakfast looked like someone stopped at the gas station on the way in and grabbed a bunch of the pastries sold by Circle K.
There are not a lot of great hotels in Alameda. This place could be sold out every night if it were better than the Hawthorne Inn. That isn't setting the bar very high! Someone should wait till this place goes under then spend a few bucks bringing it up to business travel standards and they would have all my companies business.
