Good *location was 1 block from the ocean *the price is very cheap *they did well on dusting the furniture *toilets are set to kill *bed was comfy *AC unit worked well. *fridge and microwave Bad *dirty sheets *dirty looking towels *grimy tiled floor, glad i wore socks. *Long black hair in the shower. *neighboring lot had very bright lights entering the small window I was debating between this hotel and 3 others. My two search criteria were location to the convention center, and price. Of the 4 hotels within my criteria, this one did not charge extra for parking, did not charge for a maid fee, and the other one had more bad reviews than the Marlin. Since I drove there, and because of the poor reviews, I decided to take my sleeping bag, pillow, and towel with me. I am glad I did. No, you shouldn't have to go to those lengths to feel comfortable in a hotel, but then again, you get what you pay for. For the price, I'd stay there again repeating the same process.

Uncomfortable beds and unwelcoming feel

The housekeeping staff wasn't allowed to give us enough towels. We had to go to the office to request them and got strange looks from the man at the desk. The room was depressing and dirty and very noisy and the beds were so uncomfortable that we couldn't sleep at all and got up in extreme pain. It was a bad experience and I'd never go back there again.

Good hotel for short stay.

Close enough to the beach, walking distance. 4th floor has ocean views , room 412 and 420 are the best for viewing. Only con, bathtub and sink drained extremely slow. Would recommend for an overnight stay, only.
