    Mixed bag.

    The room was very small, but had what we needed. The walls were very thin and we heard everything, it was muffled, but a nuisance. The movie in the next room kept me awake. The price was very fair, the location was excellent, but I would not stay there again.

    Friendly and cozy stayat Marina Beach

    The Marina Beach was the perfect choice for my son and I to stay while looking at the SB City College and spending time exploring the city. Close to the beach, wharf and marina and within walking distance to anything we needed without being in the heart of too much noise or activity, yet feels close enough to not feel too removed. It is also easy to access Highway 101 from this location. Room was super clean and we had opted for a kitchenette room, as we were staying for almost a week, which was also immaculate and had all of our basic kitchen needs covered. The staff was very attentive and friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again!

    Best deal in town! Highly recommend it!

    Really nice place! Nothing fancy but a block from the beach and bike/walking path. They have plenty of cruiser bikes that they let you jump on free, to ride around the beach/town. State Street is a really fun place to hang out, listen to music, eat, drink, and be merry! Half of the strip of State Street is closed to through traffic so it feels like a street party, especially with all the lights at night. We would definitely stay at Marina Motel again!
