Decided to stay in marina since it's not that far from Monterey and staying in Monterey seems pricey when this hotel is only 10-15 minutes away. You're only a short walk from the state beach which is a nice perk. Breakfast area has enough seating with a good variety of items. Only complaint was my room had a faint smell...

Nothing extrodinary. Clean. We did have the next door residents try to come through our internal door. The breakfast is what you would expected, the staff was very attentive and thoughtful. There is a very small gotten on site. The courtyard is charming. Try to get a courtroom room!

I can recommend this hotel highly. All the staff are most professional, kind and accommodating. The continental breakfast was outstanding, lots of different choices of food, drink, you could even make your own pancakes. The staff in attendance was most helpful and the place is very clean. Could not have asked for a better deal.

This hotel is in a nice location between Monterey and Santa Cruz. It's easy to access from the highway, quiet, and well-maintained. My room was clean and in good condition. I didn't take advantage of breakfast, so I can't speak to the quality.

My stay was over the weekend of May 12th for four nights with a friend. We were visiting Monterey but did not want to stay in Monterey, and found the Marina CA location perfect. Close to town and all the other places of business we might need and in walking distance to the beach. Arlene was super friendly on the...

Needed a motel for a week with AARP discount and BW matched the place I was looking for considering the length of my stay and budget. It was clean, breakfasts were good and had lots of variety, just seconds away from Marina state beach and staff were friendly. It's very close to the fwy 1. I would definitely come back...

the rooms were nice and clean and area is quiet, the beach is a about 10 minutes walk. The breakfast was excellent!! . The personnel is very attentive and helpful. They have a children playground, a patio, and a Jacuzzi. Was not able to use it as we checked in very late at night, missed it!!

My stay was a good one and the front desk made sure I was well accommodated last minutes notice when it came to terms to booking the reservation at my employee/corporate rate online. She modified my stay when I arrived with no problem!

Our first room smelled and the second room had frayed carpet that looked like dog damage. The maintenance staff tried to argue with us over the room smelling but the office staff were all friendly and helpful.
