Reviewed 4 June 2014

DO NOT STAY HERE. We were supposed to stay here April 8-12 but ended up checking out after the first night, without a refund, and moving to the Sea Shells Beach Club (wonderful, clean hotel) across the street for the remainder of our trip. Our room smelled horrible, there was NO WINDOW (which I'm pretty sure is against code), bed sunk in the middle, and it was muggy and dirty. There are also creepy characters in the parking lot late at night. I had to walk to my car to get something out of it and a guy turned around and tried to follow me to my room. We slept on top of blankets we had brought from home because the bed was so disgusting. You would be better off sleeping in your car (just not in their parking lot - haha)

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a window...

From the outside the San Marina looks like a nice family motel, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Dirty room, disgusting pool, smelly, hidden fees, ..... Save your money and sleep in your car!!

We had booked a room for 1 week in march 2 adults. The room was cold, damp, dirty, no window and the smell was terrible. The heating system was so loud you could neither sleep or talk. We arrived late in the evening so we desided to stay one night. There was no hot water until next morning. We slept all our clothes on because of the cold and lights on because of the cockroach. I have stayed in cheap hotels many times but this was the worst I ever seen. We paid the whole week advanced but were not able to get our money back from the owner. Our travel agency booked a new hotel for us and returned the money. Check your room before you deside to stay.

I could not believe check out was at 10 am when on lib fit said 12pm. Scary looking woman comes knocking at your door at 9:30 am for a 10 am checkout ... Really ???
The Indian owner was rude along with his maintenance guy who actually gave me the figure and shut the office door. Guess I had a little to much bark for him. Bad locks on the doors , gfi in bathroom didn't work , no toilet paper holder and someone or guest knocking on door at 4 am . Never again ! His comment then get another motel !! Wow !!

Do not stay here. You are better off staying in your car. We stayed 4 nights, the bathroom was not cleaned once, the room was bug infested, the sheets were not changed and the management was RUDE! We could not get a refund and had no other option but to endure the place for our stay!

Room Tip: There are "AMERICAN OWNED" hotels on the strip that look a lot better for the same price...
