The Marina Inn is on a roll - all the recent reviews have been great and in our opinion they should continue! I know we're on the tail end of the summer tourist season, but the Marina not only had availability - but had excellent facilities...
The quick points: You have to be proactive for an upgrade. Originally had been told only standard rooms were available but when arriving at the hotel inquired about single king rooms. We were told there was one available but we'd have to "pay for the difference". . . The difference ended up being a whole $18.00 (from $100 to $118) and the room came fully equipped up to and including a jetted tub (a rare feature for a non bed & breakfast NW location)...
I don't think the website actually does justice to the quality of the hotel. For a facility of their size, they do a great job of keeping everything clean and in order. The rooms were spotless and for the most part were updated (flat screen tube tv, armoire, tile, windows, etc). The continental breakfast was simple (cereals, bagels, muffins, yogurt, juices), but the coffee was great and you'll want to go to the Calico Cupboard for a full breakfast anyway (see trip advisor reviews there)!
Bellissima for a great Italian dinner and the Brown Lantern for beverages are the other hints - make your own story from there! So far we've had great luck when lodges are not scared to share the manager/owner's business card - and Pam Audette's for the Marina Inn is available right at the check in counter...
