Nice area. Quiet. Huge room. Staff was super friendly.

Nice quiet place close to the water. Stores nearby.

While it is showing its age, this is clearly a place with owners and staff who care about it. It is refreshing to stay in a place that was built before cookie cutter chains took over and has maintained a certain charm. My room was quite large and the furnishings, while not having been recently updated, were handsome and comfortable.

It’s a quiet and good neighborhood. The room and bed are clean. The price is good and I definitely come back to stay here.

Rooms were outdated but very clean. Breakfast was good. Conveniently located, only 20 minutes to downtown Seattle.

Nice quiet neighborhood. Adequate parking. Everything in the room worked.

Location and quiet and easy to reach airport and car rental return

The place was clean and I get the impression the establishment was trying to keep it updated. The room size was definitely decent; long room. Overall just a little outdated but worth the stay.

Convenient location, you cannot see the water from it. I thought the Marina was closer. There is a strip mall across the street.

Very clean and in a safe neighborhood. Rooms were large and they had free parking and a nice breakfast. Short ride to airport.

That it was close to the pair..and the people were friendly..

Friendly check in staff clean rooms much better than expected very nice would stay again

Location is great with the marina a block away. Located between Seattle and Tacoma. Off the beaten path but nice place to get away from it all. Would be nice if they expanded their continental breakfast some.

On the plus side, this hotel was quiet with easy parking and close to the Link light rail station, so I was able to get into downtown Seattle easily without traffic and paying for parking. Plenty of walkable food options around as well. The room was spacious with a "kitchenette"-- sink, fridge, microwave, small coffee maker (with surprisingly good coffee!) Travelers should be aware that it truly is a bare-bones property. Minimal toiletries, threadbare towels, frugal continental breakfast (though the waffle-maker was great!). It was fine for me and the price was right. But those expecting a bit more luxury in a hotel room will likely be disappointed.

Second stay at Marina Inn will try one more time as love the location, new updates to rooms except old bedspreads makes it look dated. Light comforters with the duvet sheet covers has been the norm at most places. Love the room space however needs more attention to details in cleanliness. Hairs on walls is weird and gross. Opened three dresser drawers and there were food crumbs etc. We chose to keep clothes in our suit cases. Halfused bar of soap from prior guest left on soap shelf in shower. Ewww... Please get better housekeeping. Love everything else. Place is quiet, with quiet toilets and AC units.

Very roomy rooms. Parking is tight space width and almost no spaces left and was told to park at next door vacant building with no security cams. Rooms seem to be clean except found medium length hair on bed as well in bathroom floor (our hair is very short). Kind of strange as we stay in hotels almost 20 nights a year and haven't seen hairs on sheet or bathroom floors. Maybe from housekeeper? Towels could be a bit bigger and they were short on towels. However did enjoy very roomy rooms, nice having a sink and counter in microwave/refrigerator area as well as sink in the bathroom. We will give it another try at staying there in the future.
