“Right on the main road, easy in easy out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

We dropped in with out a reservation. The rooms are inside so you have to pass the desk and walk down a hall. We like that for security. The breakfast was very nice, pleasant and enough. We were directed across the street for pizza and beer. Easy to cross the street. The room was very clean, shower was nice and the bed was comfortable. We would go back. At under 110. for the night, can't go wrong. All the pieces of the travel puzzle fit here.

Room Tip: Fresh homemade cookies at reception for the traveler. VG

We also think we are the complete package. We are noted for our clean rooms and great customer service. We have a great staff here eager to help with whatever you need. We're also thrilled with our new exercise room and guest computer room. I'm not sure if you had the opportunity to utilize either one of those but, if not, maybe you can the next time you're here. We appreciate you taking the time to write your review. It is so helpful to other travelers. Pam Audette, Manager

We choose this Motel from Booking .com and by reviews. The front desk was friendly, the rooms clean, and up to date. The breakfast was way more than most places , yogurt, fruit,and the usual toast, porridge, bagels, cereal etc. nice comfy area for breaking ! Beds are really comfy, as well as pillows. We will stay there again. A bit of a ways from the main drag, but drove and parked and walked . Very quiet off the main drag too. Everyone was very cordial. 24 hr. Front desk,
Parking off the street. You will not be sorry , this is a great motel/ Inn.

Room Tip: Stayed in 214' so further from the street is quieter

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Marina Inn. And thank you so much for writing a review. Even though we're about a mile or so from historic downtown Anacortes, one of the nice things about being at our end of town is you don't deal with the noise from the late night restaurants and taverns that saturate that area. We look forward to having you return. Pam Audette, Manager

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago and have nothing bad to say about it. The front desk people were friendly and helpful, our room was clean and nice, breakfast was as advertised (basic continental breakfast), the price fair, the location good. We will definitely stay here again in the future. No problems and felt the price was reasonable and fair for the value we got.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Marina Inn. Our rooms were totally renovated a few years back. Everything was taken out except the bathtubs and the toilets so everything has a newer, crisp look to it. Just last year we switched over to the Gilchrist and Soames hair and bath products which our guests have been delighted over. Not only is the quality of the products amazing but the new larger containers keep wrappers and bottles and left over soaps being wasted or ending up in the landfills. We hope to see you on a return visit. Pam Audette, Manager

The Marina Inn is one of the better places I have stayed, in its price range - possibly the best.
It is clean, comfortable, and convenient. There is a microwave, frig and food prep sink in the room. The bathroom sink is outside the toilet/shower room, which I prefer when there are two people in the same room. (I don't want to put on my makeup in the steamy room where my husband is showering.) There are several thoughtful extras, including makeup remover and dishes/utensils. I liked the pump soaps, lotion, shampoo and conditioner better than the usual tiny individual sized ones. This facility seems to really care about the guests. I would stay here again.

There is an exercise room in the facility. If you are going to or from the San Juan ferries, the Marina is conveniently located (not walking distance though.)

Came here last minute over Memorial Day weekend. The room had really good amenities and fit 3 people comfortably. The only negative was that we were facing the parking lot. The front desk staff we interacted with was fantastic. She was able to provide us with some good dining options for our night in town. The had a pretty decent free breakfast included.

I stayed here for two nights in August and would definitely stay there again. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, providing their recommendations regarding local places to visit and things to do. They even called me after I had checked out to let me know that I had left a scarf in my room. Since I was already out of the area (driving the North Cascades Loop) they offered to put the scarf in the mail right away. What wonderful service!

Our recent one night stay was good, the room was on the main floor, clean and quiet. We would stay here again as it was convenient to the ferry and good value. The staff was attentive and helpful. Reserving over the phone was very positive as the person asked about our room preference and suggested one that met my needs.
