Location - Going in the direction of Jomtien, go past VC Hotel and take the second turning left. Marina Inn is In or very close to Sunee Plaza and above several bars and nightclubs. The area is good for meals and drinks. But, if you are a light sleeper then ask for a "quiet" room which will face the rear of the property rather than a room over the bars.
I started with an "over the bars" room and on a Saturday night ! but I have to say, the noise was not that bad, but the next day the management were happy to move me to a quieter location.
The swimming pool is large and has both a shallow end and a deep end but unfortunatly the water was not heated (to heat such a large pool would be monstrously expensive) and so the water was far too cold for me to take the plunge. However it had a good selection of loungers around the pool for a quiet afternoons nap or read.
My room was fine, about average size, with tv, aircon and electric shower which all worked fine.
Added bonuses were a wet room and a fridge that stayed on when you left the room, so ice could be kept in the freezer box for late nightcaps. The internet connection didnt work too well while i was there, cutting out for long periods but the management later assured me they had fixed the problem and sure enough i had no further problems.
The staff were friendly and i had no complaints about that.
Contrary to earlier reviews, Walking Street is a good 10 minute walk away.
Overall this was a good value guest house and assuming I could get a quiet room i would certainly stay here again and would recommend it.
(Beware of” JIM PHONE” small shop at the bottom of the road, just before you get to the Main Road, the man is an absolute crook. I went there to buy an extension lead for my headphones; he gave me a piece of wire which he assured me would do the job, for 150 baht. Of course when I got back to my hotel room I found it was completely useless. When I went back to JIM PHONE for a refund he just laughed at me and said more fool me for buying it ! I later got the correct lead (branded and boxed) at a department store for one third the price. BEWARE OF STREET VENDORS!)
