My wife and I stayed for an over night. The accommodation was a family gift. After reading the reviews before our visit we were prepared for a older styled hotel and considered trying to cash in our gift. We are both really happy that we didn't. Yes it's dated and "resort" is used lightly but we had a great experience...

The "resort" is in a good location but unfortunately that's about all it has going for it. The staff were polite and courteous but the resort itself is in need of major renovation. It is really worn out and well past its heyday. Pros: - Good location, walking distance to pretty much everything - Free parking - Good staff -...

I have stayed at the Marina Resort a few times now over the years. This resort was the first resort built in the Bay Area so yes it has aged but it's clean, cheaper than the other resorts and within walking distance of town with the best views even from the first floor. Clean pool, lovely gardens, restaurant for breakfast...

We were a family of 5 in a large corner room with loads of space. The building and its facilities (esp pool) are very tired but clean. We were there for just one night and we could easily walk into the Marina for dinner and a look around.

View amazing and breakfast good (extra charge), but that is the only good criticism I can give as in total need of a refurbishment. Old tired furniture, uncomfortable beds and not really clean. We had a room overlooking the marina, convenient short walk to restaurants etc.

My family and I stayed in room 309 at the Marina Resort last night. The room was spotlessly clean (literally) and had everything that we needed. Staff were friendly also. The mattresses were spotless and quite comfortable to sleep on. The bathroom had a whirlpool bath that our kids loved. The resort also has an outdoor pool & spa, plenty...

The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to the marina, shops and restaurants. It has a pool and spa which was good to be able to use.
