I have family in SSC so have spent a lot of time at this hotel. It's right on the Missouri River and river facing rooms have a lovely view. Only the ground floor rooms have a patio, there is no walk out capabilities above ground floor. I always stay ground floor, riverside when I stay there. Nice to be able to walk out on the patio and have morning coffee.
I have stayed in several suites over the years as well. There are nice suites with a separate living room and small kitchen which have a huge bedroom. Both rooms have a beautiful river view. There was also a jetted tub for two in the bathroom.
Have stayed in a larger suite that had an additional dining room with table that could seat 8. This suite had double patio doors that walked out to dual patios. This was perfect when entertaining family.
My most recent stay was this past weekend. The Marina is in process of renovations. We were put into one of the rooms awaiting renovation. We requested a ground floor, riverside room with king bed. Got ground floor reversible with 2 queens. Not a big deal. Room smelled bad though. We got there late, so didn't want to mess with it that night. Started hearing noises, found three extremely large moths in the room. Had to catch and release. My belief is that the room smelled when the maid was cleaning room, so the patio door was opened allowing moths to come in. Talked to front desk the next morning on our way to a family event, he gave me a different room and said no hurry to move. About 1.5 hours later got a call from the Marina Inn (on my cell) asking me to move my stuff right away as they needed the room. Woman was rude. Went back to hotel and switched rooms.
Had complimentary breakfast in Kahills onsite. Although it was not busy, and the menu extremely limited, it took forever to get our breakfast. When we got it, it was wrong for 3 out of 4 of us. Decided after that to breakfast somewhere else..complimentary or not, it was not worth the time investment.
This stay was not the best for me. I will stay there in the future as my family is about 10 minutes away, so super convenient, but I hope they will kick it up a notch. Definitely not my best stay here.
