Hilton Garden Inn Marina Del Rey

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel staff was friendly, however when we got to our room and realized it was located directly in front of the elevator, near the ice machine and facing a very busy street I asked to change to a quieter location. Since we are light sleepers I need a quiet room. The hotel didn't look like it was booked as there were very few people around and the parking garage was empty. Also, initially when we pulled up to the hotel it appeared closed as there were no cars or people out in front of the hotel. I asked to change rooms and they stated "they were fully booked" The only room they could give me was the room right above our current room (same noise issue but just on the second floor). They didn't seem very accommodating to my request for a quiet location regarding my room. Not sure if this is a new hotel or is being renovated and therefore there are not enough available completed rooms? The restaurant also has very mediocre food and very slow service. There was only one waitress running the entire restaurant. Quality of food needs to improve tremendously as well as timelier table service. Overall, the location was great and interior of rooms are updated, modern, and clean. Gym is small and could get quite crowded if the hotel is fully booked. Would be nice to have the pool heated and hot tub temperature warmer than just tub water.

The bungalow was incredible. The room was always spotless.

The staff were awesome and helped me create a magical night for my wife's birthday and our anniversary. Could not have been better!

pluses include a late check-out (noon). within walking to distance to beach (15 min) and to good restaurants. would prefer if check-in was earlier (it's at 3, and we had driven 5 hours to get there...we arrived at 2 and were told we would have to wait which was a bummer). overall not bad if you are visiting marina del rey and venice beach

we enjoyed our stay. convenient location. close to beach and city. lots of restaurants nearby. free internet

very clean and modern. perfect location. you can rent a bike in the lobby and ride to all the nearby attractions. front desk was very helpful. breakfast buffet was good. restaurant was open late on saturday and the beer menu was good. plenty of parking for an extra $10 a night. will stay here again.

This is one of the best areas to stay in LA., proximity to Venice, Santa Monica perfect. Lots of restaurants nearby. Bike hire was perfect for the location, good facilities - pool, outdoor areas, helpful staff. Recent upgrade made our room one of the best we stayed at and gives a good feel to the hotel. Definitely return if in LA.

Ample parking. Room temperature control does not exist in the room.

good location, clean room, friendly staff. Would stay here again.

Hotel in nice spot by marina. Rooms need serious update, but are kept clean. Adjoining rooms felt like people next door were in our room. Staff was helpful and friendly. For the price, it's a good value.

Overall OK for value. The room is quite large, but the wall is just too thin we could hear people/TV in next room clearly. Worst part was they had the room next to ours under renovation, so at 7:30AM in the morning the crew was already there working and woke us up. I would hesitate to recommend this one for next trip.

very out dated bathroom . room right next to a major construction site. room out dated ..chairs out dated v e r y out dated tv.. I walked out... did not stay at that hotel... How can this be rated 3 star??? .. Regina Piehl

Great location, VERY close to Venice beach boardwalk (doable walking distance). Plenty of resturaunts near by. Shopping mall about 7 min drive. Simple rooms, nothing elegant, but clean. Staff was friendly. RESTURAUNT: -Dinner, very mediocre. For same price if you are looking for something very close walk across the street to KILLER SHRIMP, good food, all types. -Breakfast, better than dinner! Not bad, would consider repeating.

simple hotel , not really cheap for what it is ,,old and very old bathrooms

Stay would have been better if housekeeping would respect the Do Not Disturb sign. They woke me up each morning before 9am eventhough I had the sign hanging on the door handle. Had a very uncomfortable King size bed. My back was sore for two days after checking out. The location was great because of the proximity to the water and the counter staff were very accommodating.

We found the location perfect, close to family who lives in the area, looked fine from the outside, and happily checked in for our 2 night stay...This place is overdue for a renovation and I would recommend waiting until that happens. The rooms are large and were probably very nice- a couple of decades ago. Now there are iron burns on the floor and the whole place has that outdated- "wish we'd stayed somewhere else" feel to it! That and some extra-noisy neighbors ended our stay early...Watch this place for a nice stay when they update/renovate.

The heat didn't work, the coffee maker was broken, they lost my reservation, food only so-so. Location good for Santa Monica,stafff friendly. Very ordinary hotel, but not expensive and free parking. Okay for 1 night, but could do better

this is a well kept, clean, private owned hotel. if you like everything new like the big chains, you won't like this. If you like really clean, really kind staff, 1/2 mile off venice beach, you'll like this. The room is old and clean. the bathroom is old and clean. the whole place is old and clean. The pool is really clean. The guy in the red cap maticulousy cleans it every day. The front desk staff is great. If you like to run and ride a bike this is heaven. The bike path runs right by it and you can go for miles. This is a great long weekend motel. Free parking ....I'll come back.

Had a most enjoyable one-night stay here. Staff very friendly, good location not far from Venice Beach Fishing Pier

I have been familiar with this hotel for many years. It was confortable and inb a great location for (that night) a modest price. Parking was easy and the ride to our room went smoothly. The small balcony was a welcome addition to the experience and proved a nice place to spip wine and listen to the night. The desk personnel checked us in while providing a cookie for our comfort. It certainly isn't the nearby Ritz Carlton but it is a warm and friendly place for a weekend escape that won't break the bank.
