“Near the Gaslamp Quarter!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Me and a couple of friends came down to San Diego during Presidents weekend, and had a blast! We wanted to be near the gaslamp, and close to all of the clubs, and the Marina Inn definitely was. The front desk was more than happy to point me to all of the poppin clubs. The rooms were nice, the value was good, but the service was exceptional!

Dear Sir/ Madam,

During our holiday in Southern California we did stay in many motels of which the Marina Inn in San Diego bay was absolutely the best value for money. The room was relatively modern, clean and the location was perfect. Also the service provided by Sarah was outstanding.

Best regards,

I spent 4 nigths at Marina Inn in early February: the hotel is in a very good location, just 3 mins walk from the trolley station that takes you around San Diego. Walking to downtown is also possible. Rooms are very clean and properly serviced. There are only 2 negative issues: the main one is the location as the hotel lays between the Pacific Highway and the railway, with the international airport just 3 mins away. The second one is the breakfast, it's very limited and served at the reception (no tables, no sitting). It was anyway a good experience and would surely repeat it if I happen to be again in SD, also considering that in the next few weeks all windows will be replaced with sound-proof ones, as the owner reported.

Thank you so much for sharing your comments. You are correct; the windows will be replaced with sound-proof windows in the near future. It’s great to know you were able to get to and from your daily plans with no hassle due to our convenient location. As for the free continental breakfast, we offer it as a courtesy, as a quick pick-up-and-go to get your day started, it is not advertised as dine in buffet. We’re happy you had an enjoyable stay with us and were pleased with the cleanness of our rooms and amenities. We look forward to seeing you again!

AAA approved on main thoroughfare fishing at bay kaiaking at la jolla. Tina was very helpful gave me directions to all the nearby places. She offered me a shuttle to the airport and got me in at a great rate when everyone's pricing was way high because of Presidents' Day weekend.

Me and my fiancé decided to stay for almost 45 days in California. Since it was a really long trip, we chose hotels that weren't really expensive, but tried choosing those with good reviews and that seemed nice. We we're real happily surprised with Marina Inn and Suites. The room was big, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was really clean, the shower was great, the TV had all kinds of channels, the heat was really good and there were a lot of useful things in the room we did not use, such as iron table and iron, closet, microwave, alarm clock, and the list goes on. It was a bit loud during the day (the train runs in the street parallel to the hotel), but c'mon, who wants to stay in when travelling? And the location of the hotel is perfect! You have trains one street from the hotel, buses, and taxis aren't expensive, 'cause the hotel is really close to everything. Sarah - this lovely and efficient girl that stays at the front desk - made our stay delightful! She helped us with directions, recommendations and a smile everyday. We'll be back next time we visit San Diego!

Room Tip: Stay away from the smoking rooms.
