The only thing is that your walls are not thick enough and it felt as if other people were in our room. It was that clear hearing other people conversation. The service was great, everything in the room we stayed was nice and cleaned. Thank you.

After arriving on a late flight, our family just needed a place to stay before heading north to Legoland. We booked the Marina Inn and Suites based on location and price. It's a cheap motel and we got what we paid for. I don't necessarily mean that in a negative way. It wasn't a bad place but it was a...

We were staying in San Diego for two nights and had a pleasant stay here at Marina Inn and Suites.

Dear Ben, We appreciate your kind and positive review of Marina Inn & Suites. Our location is ideal for exploring the San Diego area, and it sounds as if you made the most of it!

Room was renewed recently, no rust, mold etc.. Very good bed. Parking is not too big, but there is free street parking, so no worries. No breakfast but 3 min to 7-eleven and Little Italy (a lot of cafes and restaurants).

The staff was warm. The room was clean and comfortably cool. The harbor path was 2 blocks away, and fantastic beer was two blocks the other direction. But, the room was old. The bathroom sink was cracked and the bath was so tight it was hard to use. The mattresses had some sag to them. For the price, this was...

I was there for business. The room was nice and clean. It is at a busy intersection, but they had earplugs in the room. The location is good for walking to many popular places in San Diego. I had interaction with 3 different people at the front desk, they were very friendly. Nice dispositions to work with the public.

We went to spend the night there for an early flight. The proximity to the airport, downtown, Little Italy or San Diego Harbor are the best attractions of this hotel.
