Stayed for 3 nights here on a sight-seeing trip to San Diego and I picked this place mainly because I wanted to stay in either Little Italy or Gaslamp quarter which seemed to be the perfect launchpad to cover all the attractions on my list. This place is a short bus ride (992) from the airport and the nearest attractions...

Staff was very pleasant and room was clean and we loved the updates that were recently done. We WILL be back again. I love the location and the price. They even have earplugs in the room because it is downtown close to train tracks and can be a noisy area. We didn't mind the noise and it is just a...

I spent two nights at the Marina Inn & Suites in August 2016, and found it to be a pleasant stay. The best thing about the hotel is its location. San Diego is a small city and the Marina Inn & Suites is centrally located - about a 15-minute drive from the airport and a beautiful 10-minute walk to the...

This will be the 4th year that we will stay at Marina Inn and Suites. We started staying there for just 3 weeks and now we are staying there 2 1/2 months. That is testimony in itself, but the location, the staff and the weather are all outstanding. The staff is so friendly, that we feel like family. If you...

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Jamal is an awesome team member and really enjoys delivering his brand of exceptional customer service.

I like Motels, as a taste of Americana, and have no issue with them being dated and frayed as long as they are clean. This one however is a smelly, sticky-floored, grimy establishment with dubiously stained furniture and a bathroom that reminded me of that from a 1970s holiday camp. It's awful. We christened it the "Breaking Bad Inns &...

We stayed here for two nights (a Friday and Saturday). It was the cheapest hotel in the area we wanted. It's a block away from the water, 1 mile from the Midway, and 1.5 from the Gaslamp District. Anything closer to the Gaslamp District seemed to be at least double the price. The hotel parking lot is an absolute joke,...

This hotel is in a great location and the staff were very nice, but that's about all it has going for it. The lobby is cute and has a beach cottage feel, but it does not represent the rooms. There is NOT enough parking for the number of rooms they have and the lot is so small it's extremely hard...

I expected more from this property after seeing their website. They are right next door do a closed down hotel, located on the corner of 2 major roads and the hotel doesn't look great from the outside. Having said that, the rooms were comfortable and clean, the staff were friendly and the hotel is conveniently located if you need to...

Pretty good motel, location is good, not far from the gaslamp and little Italy, free parking and wifi was good. Beer the harbor and the USs midway museum. Shower in the room is pretty old. For the money we paid we were definitely satisfied
