“Wonderful hotel and fantastic service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2009

We booked this hotel for 2 nights over the internet for an $89 special. When we arrived, we were greeted by the bellman/valet who took our luggage and us to our room. For $50 I upgraded to the partial ocean view apartment. It was wonderful - a living room with sofa, chair, fireplace, 42" plasma flat screen TV, kitchen fully stocked, dining room table and chairs, beautiful bedroom with plush Beautyrest mattress, TV, etc. Both rooms had a balcony. The only negative is there is valet parking only at $16.50 per day. You can park on the street if you can find a place. The views overlook the Santa Monica bay and the Venice boardwalk. There were restaurants within walking distance but at night it was a bit spooky with homeless and pot smoking folks! It was so cold we checked out after 1 night. The hotel has been remodelled and they are going to add a restaurant on the roof top floor. There was complimentary high speed internet in the room. A great place!

I LOVE the Marina Pacific Hotel. I visit the Marina Pacific every 3 to 4 months to recharge. It is my home away from home. All my friends and family know this is "my" hotel. The rooms are great. The construction took awhile but was worth the wait. I'm anxious for the restaurant and room service hopefully. Everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff always go out of their way to make sure my stay is as wonderful as possible.

It's close to the airport so a shuttle from the airport is easy and convenient. Hanging out at the Venice Beach boardwalk is fun and free entertainment just watching all the people. It's fun to sit on the balcony and watch the crowds from the comfort of your room if you feel like it. Lots of good resturants within walking distance and some even deliver.

If I ever ran away from home, this is where my family would find me. :o)

  • Liked — How close it is to the beach and boardwalk
  • Disliked — no room service
  • Stayed November 2008, traveled solo
