“A good choice!”
Reviewed 7 February 2010

We stayed at the Marina Inn and left our car there for 3 weeks when we took a flight out of Sea Tac.

On arrival our reservations for both us and the car were as arranged promptly earlier on the internet by Michelle.

The room we got was spacious, comfortable, and clean, We found it quite quiet at night.
We left too early so can't comment on the breakfast, but our rides to and from the airport went off as arranged with both drivers, Tara on the return, being pleasant people.

We ate dinner at Wally's Seafood which was recommended, and we found the fare to be quite decent, and the price reasonable.

Our overall experience here, would lead us to believe this is one of the best bets in the area to stay at and leave your car at a reasonable price. NOTE: You keep your car keys while away. More to my liking than having to leave them.

I would NOT recommend this place to ANYONE!!! It is icky top to bottom. Mold on the walls of the bathroom, hair on the "clean" sheets on our bed, box spring had stains going down side that looked like blood, the blanket was so old and nasty I wouldn't use it for our dog! And if you're thinking of staying here for the "free" parking/van to airport service think again.....the van ride to the airport was on time and worked well, but our relatives never got a pick up for the van ride back since they simply did NOT pick up their courtesy phone!!!

I booked a room during Thanksgiving weekend for three nights on short notice through Travelocity at a rate of $50 per night. Upon check-in, we were given keys to a room that was dirty. We returned to the desk and the clerk apologized and rebooked us to a slightly better room. The inn is very basic and in need of a renovation. The tv remote did not work and the inn smelled slightly of smoke, although they state that they are a non-smoking facility. The walls are thin and there were wild, loud people on the second floor two of the nights we were there. I will not return to this inn in the future; it would be worth it to spend the extra money to stay in a much nicer place.

We used the Park 'n Fly option, staying at the hotel one night and parking for a week. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very large, surprisingly so, with a fridge and microwave. The continental breakfast was very basic but okay. The shuttle to the SeaTac Airport took only 10 minutes. Tara, the young woman on the front desk, was very friendly and helpful - she was a new employee and will be a credit to this hotel. We were surprised that we didn't have to leave our car keys - the car stays where you park it. Very nice location, easy access to I-5. We found the Des Moines Creek Restaurant just a few blocks from the hotel and had an awesome dinner there - pecan crusted halibut! All in all, a pleasant experience. We have booked again for our upcoming trip in January.

Michelle was awesome, room was clean and had a comfortable bed. We had an early morning flight on 10/31 so missed the breakfast. The night of our arrival we went to the Mexican restaurant next door--won't make that mistake again. Food was salty and not appealing at all. After dinner walked down to the harbor and enjoyed the sunset. Shuttle Service to/from the airport was good and on time. This was the best deal we found for a Park N'Fly out of Sea-Tac. Would stay here again

Marina Inn is a place where you can stay a night or more and park your vehicle for 7 days or more when you're flying out of the SeaTac Airport. We stayed there for one night at the beginning of our trip, parked our car for 5 days and then stayed one more night at the end of our trip because our flight came in quite late. They charge a very reasonable rate and your car is in a quiet and safe part of town. Michelle is an incredible employee who goes out of her way to make sure that the customers are on time for their flight (even if it means her waking up at 4:00 am like she had to for us) and shuttles them to the airport. She is an employee that I'm sure every employer would love to have working for them as she goes non-stop. She's friendly, helpful, courteous, knowledgable and an extremely hard working individual that seems to go to any means to make her customers happy. She made this stay a very pleasant one for us and I would definitely recommend this establishment because of the positive experience that we had and we will stay there again. Thank you Michelle!

Stayed there one night in early October to go to San Fran. Pleased with everything. We checked in very late close to 11:00pm and front desk was very friendly. We needed to leave at 4:30am to catch a flight at 6:00am and the driver was already waiting at the entrance when we walked out. Room was clean and has everything you need and Wi-Fi worked fine with my laptop. Only waited for about 15 mins at the airport when we returned. The location is good too, close to waterfront and far from main roads, very quiet.
