Marina Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location walking distance to the marina. Lots of food choice nearby. Spacious room, nice layout.

We stayed for 6 nights, older property but was kept up well. Clean, Bed was comfortable but the pillows need to be replaced. Room cleaning daily was hit and miss, forgot cups 1 day, soap on another day minor things. Location made it fairly easy to get either north or south to freeways. Breakfast offered was OK, nothing special. We would stay again in the future.

We got in very late in the night and had no other option. We only needed a bed and a shower for one night. Our needs were met except the linens smell and bed not so comfortable. Room appeared clean but smelled moldy, maybe molds were under the carpet. Staff were friendly. Continental breakfast was a plus.

We were looking for a place to spend the night before a morning flight at SeaTac. This place was clean, quiet, comfortable, and reasonably-priced (for summer in the greater Seattle area). The neighborhood seemed fine. There was a continental breakfast. There was no elevator so if stairs are a problem, make sure you ask for a ground-floor room when you make your reservation.

Walk to Marina, park, beach, to dinner. Breakfast, including couple gluten free options. Free ride to the train station from hotel on request. All in addition to comfortable clean room.

Friendly staff, great walk close by. First night quiet as can be. Second night noisy arrivals late at night. Second story best it you want to sleep with your windows open. 20 min drive to Sea Tec airport on back roads. Very little traffic.

Great area nice staff. Breakfast was not very good. Hotel could use some updates

Great inexpensive motel close to SeaTac and the waterfront. Quiet with some good food sources close by. They are updating the rooms now too. Good spot for a hit n' run to Seattle.

I only needed a room for one night therefore it "Fit the Need". The customer service was outstanding. The furniture and carpet needs replacing. The smell upon entrance needs to be taken care of. The accessibility to the Pier was a delight.

Spend the night there for a second time. Very helpful and friendly staff! Room was good and clean. It was large with a sink and refrigerator. Nice breakfast included in the price. Enjoyed my stay once again.

We arrived late (it wason our reservation that we would be arriving after 11pm) to a dark lobby- the outside phone went to a voice mail, we were standing outside of the hotel with no idea if we would have a room to sleep in for about ten minutes. Turns out the very please desk clerk has to make an airport run, forgot to bring the phone, and there wasn't a 'be right back sign". Once that got straightened out, this no frill hotels was fine. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and they served a very nice waffle/continental breakfast in the morning.

Nice room, quiet area, short walk to bay/picnic area, restaurants...We're would stay here again

Nice place to stay, the place was quite, the surrounding area was safe to walk around at night. Good for family trip.

The main thing people use in a hotel room is the bed. This bed was right out of the 60's. The headboard was ancient and attached to the wall, not the bed. The mattress was so old, you could could actually see it sagging in the middle when you walked in the room. The sheets didn't fit and pulled loose as soon as you laid down and they had a plastic liner (like a shower curtain) underneath it all that squeaked every time you moved. A new bed and mattress would have vastly improved the room.

Nice place and can walk to Puget Sound. Only downside is breakfast starts at 7: 30. Needs to be earlier.

It advertised a airport shuttle but does not have one.

The Marina Inn was wonderful to stay out. The rooms were nice, comfortable, clean and well maintained. I would absolutely stay there again. The only drawback was the woman at the front desk who seemed totally miserable. She wasn't rude but she wasn't nice. Monotone and unfriendly. Glad she wasn't I'm my room...lol. Seriously, I'd still stay again.

Our trip was to attend a memorial service for a dear friend. Needless to say we did not come to have fun. However our room was very comfortable and the staff did all they could to make our stay as pleasant as they could under the circumstances.

The pros are: the location is great, they offer free wifi and free continental breakfast. The cons are: the bed is uncomfortable and the place is a little dated. Overall, a good value for the money. Would stay again.

Fit our needs perfectly. Nothing fancy, the room was acceptable though needed some noticeable updates. Hotel overall was quiet & breakfast options were a bit limited-although cook your own waffles are always appreciated. There was plenty of parking in the hotel lot.
