Basic lodging near the airport

It was a decent hotel - room was dated but clean and fairly comfortable. Unfortunately it had a bit of a musty smell. We had a 2nd floor room with no elevator which was a little rough on my arthritic knees. Free breakfast is always nice, this one was decent enough but nothing special.

Great location, great price

Wow, what a nice surprise! Walking distance to Des Moines marina (Anthony's), no aircraft noise, safe parking lot--nice change from SeaTac hotels---wouldn't work for those flying in and out unless you have a car or want to pay $15 per person for airport transport (or taxi) but for meetings in the SeaTac area, it was great for me! Breakfast wasn't good, but heck, for the price and location--no big deal!

Seattle's Best

The Marina Inn was a little further than I like but a great value. The staff did not work the front desk but responded very quickly after calling the desk phone. The room was very clean and spacious. Dining options are better during the day. Multiple ways to enter Seattle from this hotel. 17 miles to downtown. Beautiful marina pier park about half a mile away.

Okay for one night

The hotel has a sign that says it charges for stains on towels, etc. That includes make up, food, etc. stains. It made me nervous to use their things. I thought that we were paying for full use of the room and towels. I felt very unwelcome because of this.

sweet stay

Spent a night at the Marina Inn. I was there to drop my daughter off at the airport. We had a sweet stay. The personnel were very friendly and helpful, even looked up directions for me and wrote down the information I needed. The room was large and clean with its own personality and the beds were comfortable. We walked down to the marina in the evening. It was stunning. Loved it! I hope to have an opportunity to return and enjoy this hotel and lovely area again.
