Hotel is very average but was clean. Must have been a run on mirrors for hotel décor as our room had 3 large ones. Was kind of funny. This town was between Tacoma and Seattle so the price was according. Must less than Seattle. Worked perfectly for our needs. Breakfast was pitiful, plan to make a stop after you check out.

My youngest son has been living in Seattle the past 2 years & found this hotel for me. My room was 204, it was HUGE, as the bed, which 2-3 people could fit, desk, dresser with deep, many drawers & a safe, sitting area with a full size couch, the windows are almost the entire length of the room & you cannot hear the traffic or planes, the walls & floors are solid, very quite, clean, safe. Window AC/heat, priority for us desert rats, everything you need already in the room: kitchenette with fridge, microwave, coffee, sink, closet, iron, ironing board, hair dryer in the bathroom, which is a little tight & no tub or door, which was weird for me. Shuttle both ways to airport was $30. I learned how to use the city bus, transfer, & the Link for Seattle. The Marina is just down the street & the restaurants up around the block, the breakfast places are south & Wally's etc., north. The marina also has a restaurant, we went to both. Michelle & Rick were very nice as they knew the reason for my stay & gave me a very good rate for such a nice large remodeled room & the bedspreads/linens have been replaced. I think they also attract all adults, no kids my 3 days. I like that the noisy vending machines are downstairs, I didn't make breakfast. Lobby very nice, fresh flowers, flowers everywhere, restroom downstairs, fireplace in breakfast area & tv . Free Wifi & it works. There is a pc, but I had my husband fax my flight confirmation to the lobby. I would definitely return when I come back to Seattle. When I travel, I like to go, stay, eat, shop, etc., at non-chain and support local business owners & communities.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the bay, trees, main street. I prefer upstairs.

This place is a little gem. Room has comfy bed, kitchenette, iron and board, AC or heat, a laundry center, comfy couch and table for good workspace. Internet is good, and the continental breakfast is a nice touch. Throw in lots of parking and (at most times) free shuttle to the airport and you are not lacking. One block from Marina and there must be 15 restaurants in walking distance. Awesome little hotel

It's nothing fancy. We arrived very late. Parking was tight. Front door was locked and you had to call on the phone provided at the door to get the clerk to open. He was friendly, considering the time of night. No elevators so hiking our luggage up the stairs, while exhausted, was not fun. Room was clean-ish. Old and tired looking...just like us! Bedding was awful. Bathroom , meh. Would I stay again. Probably not.

We flew into Seattle for a 3 1/2 week vacation that included a 7 day cruise to Alaska, a week at a resort near Mount Hood, Oregon and a week stay at another resort in Ocean Shores, Washington. So after checking what was available near the airport I discovered the Marina Inn. The location was perfect, close to the airport and only about 20 minutes from Pier 93 where our cruise to Alaska would depart from.
We stayed at the Marina Inn on 3 separate nights about a week apart. We stayed the night before the cruise departure, we stayed the night at the end of the cruise and we stayed the night before our early morning flight home at the end of our trip 3 1/2 weeks later.
I can not say enough about the hotel manager, Michelle, she was wonderful. Not only is she the Manager, but also she drove the hotel shuttle van. She drove my wife and I and another couple to and from the cruise ship. She drove us to the airport to pick up our rental car the day after the cruise. She met me at the rental car return the night before our flight home, and then took us to the airport at 6 am. the next morning for our flight home, how great is that!
My wife being handicapped, Michelle made sure that we always had a ground floor unit #108 and it was always ready well before check-in time.
If we ever need to stay in Seattle again I will definitely stay at the Marina Inn, mostly because of Michelle. Oh and by the way Michelle also recommended A great seafood restaurant two blocks away called Wally's, fantastic, but be prepared to wait for a table, its a local favorite. We ate there 3 times, Get the almond crusted fresh halibut with mushroom sauce on top, its wonderful.

Room Tip: Our room #108 was on the ground floor and quiet. No problem sleeping.
