Terrific bargain for the price and area - go a little further south and watch rates double. Excellent breakfast for the price. Very nice people running the place.

"Howard Johnson's in Marina, CA"
The staff was very friendly. The room was good. The area seemed quiet. The king size bed was good, but a little too firm for my wife. Breakfast was included. There was a variety of things to eat, including yogurt. The room was quiet and smelled good. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave. The refrigerator worked well. We didn't use the microwave. The TV is a flat screen. We really didn't have any problems with the room or staff. I would recommend this motel.

"Clean, safe hotel."
We had a nice stay. We had room 206 and we liked it because it was at the end and slightly tucked away so you only have one wall adjoining another person's room. Since it is an upstairs room, there is no one staying above you so it was pretty quiet. The room was very clean.

"Will Stay Again"
Staff were very helpful and friendly. I arrived into town early and they were able to accommodate with early check-in. I know they didn't have to do that, even if a room was ready but they did it with a smile. Also needed late checkout and that was communicated to them which they appreciated instead of just not getting out on time and they also were understanding. I had a great experience at this location. They are working hard to update the rooms and they want you to be comfortable. Breakfast is adequate and way better than spending additional money on the trip.

Nothing negative to write about this hotel except that the breakfast lounge was way to small for the no. of guest they have in this hotel. The owner was very greatful and considerate in explaining that tthey had requested city twice to extend the room but were unsuccessfull. Apart from that....everything worked fine. Also note that there is a gas station in the same lot with the hotel, with a little barrier concrete wall

"Better value for the price"
I've stayed in several hotels/motels in the area and found this one to be as good as others that cost more. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and although it is directly in front of a gas station I felt safe. I would return from work in the evenings and find people/families chatting out front. The continental breakfast was adequate though there is limited, tight seating. My only complaints are A. the A/C filter was really dirty; as a person with allergies this is a problem. I've noticed however that it is common among nearly all of the places I've stayed so that before I turn on the A/C I remove the filter. B. even though there were several placards regarding their ecofriendly initiatives (ex. "reusing your towel? hang it up! want a new one? Leave it on the floor", etc.) they didn't follow through. Overall I certainly recommend this motel to others.

"hotel rating"
This hotel ended up being further away from Santa Cruz than I wanted. Our stay was for 4 nights, and the drive back and forth was a bit much. My son's gratuation from UCSC had several activities throughout the weekend so we'd have to plan for being gone for the whole day. I thought the website stated it was 23 miles. It was a good 45 minutes away. The hotel clerk was very nice and the outside of hotel looks fairly new. Parking is limited and was full every night. Our room was very presentable when you first walk in. Except that the refridgerator was on the floor with the microwave on top. After our long stay these are a few of the issues we had. Our room was in #109. The door did not close and lock properly. My husband had to push it pretty hard to get it locked. I could not get it at all. The toilet seat is completely lose. The shower rod had been reset, and the worse repair job ever. Shower curtain hangs so low into the tub I was afraid I might slip on it. Very dangerous. Our T.V. was terrible. Lines rolling up the screen. We did let the clerk know. She said they'd check it. Not sure if they did or not. Her explanation was, "the cable companies were having trouble." She explained this to us every time she'd see us. Other guests I asked said their's was okay. The beds and pillows are clean but are only average comfort. The breakfast was pretty good. The area is very small and gets very congested with guests. The quality of the tissues and toilet paper used is excellent. The price of our stay was an average of $68.00 a day. We did not complain about the issues other than the T.V. I would not recommend this hotel for a long stay. Overnight maybe. You are much closer to Monterey than to Santa Cruz.

"Nice, clean, and affordable."
I booked two rooms (108 and 109, I stayed in 108) my friends said their room was nice and I didn't hear of any complaints. My room was very clean and had complimentary mints by the bedside and a nice window that you could actually open up for the fresh marina air. I chose to stay in marina for 3 days because we all planned to go to Santa Cruz and monterey so marina was a good and affordable middle place. The continental breakfast was really nice. They had tasty fresh coffee with an assortment of creamers, sweeteners (even blue agave was an option!), milk, juice, eggos, bakery bagels, wheat bread for toasting, svenhaards pastries, hard boiled eggs, lil smokies sausages, cereals, oatmeal (variety), bananas, yoplait yogurt, and all of the condiments available. Also at check in, there's chocolate chip cookies available.

I had an event in Monterey and needed a place to stay one night. I wanted no frills but hoped for clean and a decent bed. I got that and more! The rooms looked recently redone. They were clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was totally decent. And it shares a parking lot with a nice gas station so its easy to grab snacks and gas before heading out.
