Very good value for money !
Impeccable staff (hyper pro, friendly and welcoming).
Perfect situation (near the airport, the train, the port, Little Italy, not far from downtown)
The rooms are clean as well and the beds are comfortable.
A little noisy but for us, it was not a problem.
For sure, we will come back !

No frills, but our room was clean and we walked to Gaslamp, Little Italy and Seaside. Also the hotel is very close to the Amtrak station. Very friendly staff, and I agree the breakfast is just enough to tide you over until a real sit-down breakfast or maybe even lunch.

My only real area of concern was the shower; cold, to tepid, to scalding in a matter of seconds -be very careful.

We recently had to plan a night stay for our brother that was in San Diego and us in Florida. After searching all night with no help living so far away we tried one last place which was the Marina Inn. The lady , Micheline, who answered went above and beyond for us to help out our brother. The room was great and food also was wonderful. It replenished our positive outlook after a lot of dead ends this night knowing that even as far away as we are we were still treated like we were neighbors . Great service and price was great. Thank you again

Allows pets!!! The area is nice, even a little grass nearby to walk the dogs. We were pleased with the service and value of the place. The managers were quite accomodating. It is a nice place to sleep and be amongst the attractions of San Diego. The breakfast was limited but served its purpose. We would stay there again if we needed a nice, inexpenisive room.

Room Tip: Still have smoking rooms. We were in the upstairs middle section and the rooms were smaller than an...

Newly refurbished room with micro and fridge, bathroom small but adequate, staff very friendly and helpful, ideal position for town, harbour ,airport, trolley and trains. We visit San Diego quite frequently and found this to be the best value for accommodation and service.

Starting with a "parking lot" probably design for minicars, a room with a "unforgettable" smell, a "nice" view of a wall from your window, a bathroom that you have to remove the tp from the holder so you can"fit" and make sure no body tries to open the door because will hit your knees, a refrigerator that has a setting of frozen only, an air conditioner so loud that mask,the noise of the trains, the room needed more than a full cleaning a a bed that is as old as the building.
To top the above, I was going to be charged for 2 bottles of water ($5.00) that we did not use and a "safe charge" that I did not use because the management had the code to open them. I,was credited for this charges after I complained.
Be aware that I was told that they may charge for the use of the coffe maker.
Last the breakfast consist of coffe (you may have to wait until they brew a new pot), hard boiled eggs, muffin and orange juice (?) cereal, now the interesting thing take your little plastic tray from your room, so you can take it back to your "room", by the way do not be shock to see some guests outside the "reception room" having coffe in their pajamas.

Slightly belated review but stayed here in March 2012 for 5 nights with a friend whilst travelling California, would definitely recommend this hotel for those on a budget, Comfy Beds, clean/tidy rooms and the couple who run this hotel are really friendly and helpful. They are more than happy to help with any questions you have and give you info on things to do in San Diego.
