Like the location and the marina view. Didn’t like the unsavory characters hanging around the premises.

A very basic place, but very clean and great places to walk nearby.

I like the location right at the marina. The structure is old and needs refurbishment.

Good location. Rooms are dated and need renovation. Clean but noisy. Staff courteous and helpful.

Great location. Horrible maintenance and service. Called hotel sheaf of time and they told me they were sold out, i was able to book online. Then room door key cards DO NOT WORK. Its a safety problem and hotel staff are aware of it but no fix in sight. Hotel needs overhaul and new management. Could be a gem

This last stay was the 2nd time coming here, and it was even better because we got placed in the remodeled king room. Obviously this place has its perks and problems (wifi hasn't worked at all, both times) but overall we enjoy staying here.

I love the location and room but the wifi didnt work the whole time and there was no free breakfast as advertised. I would love to stay here again but not having wifi and doing nothing about it is just bad business. Dont advertise what u dont have.

I stay at the Marina Village Inn when doing business in Oakland/Alameda area. It is a good value.

Beware: despite the fabulous location, this hotel is pretty much a DUMP. It is extremely run down. The property needs a total remodel - I'm talking top to bottom. It would be better to bulldoze and start over! I would NEVER stay here again. It's bad news! The staff does their best under difficult circumstances..........

The staff was friendly. The room was clean. The continental breakfast was good. The scenery was good. The room was kinda small. The value was okay for the area.

Our stay at Marina Village Inn was a very comfortable, peaceful stay. The location is very convenient to stores, and sights, with a nice marina view from the room. The staff was courteous and helpful. I was able to park very close to the room, and had no worries about security. The breakfast provided was pleasant, and when items ran low, the staff cheerfully replenished them. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room was a handy touch. We were not in "want" of necessities, although I was disappointed the room was set up with only enough towels for one. (I did not request more towels, and am sure more would have been provided, along with an apology for the inconvenience) The price was extremely reasonable, and I would stay here again, as well as recommend it to travelers wishing for an ideal, safe local.

The Marina Village Inn is in a beautiful location, right by a marina on San Francisco Bay. And the room rates are inexpensive compared to other hotels in the area. On the other hand, this property is an old one. It seems to me it has been maintained with the smallest possible budget. Everything worked, but was mostly old and worn, and there was a fair amount of gluing and patching. These conditions don't bother me--you get what you pay for. But I do need wifi, and the wifi was unacceptably bad. It was slow and kept dropping the connection.

I used to love this place, now it is a place where people come to party. The hallway carpet is filthy and stained. The breakfast has went downhill. No coffee in the rooms. Positive, great views of the marina and great location!

I use the Marina Inn when I am working in the area. It is close to two yacht clubs and is often booked with US Coast Guard and/or US Navy personnel. Reasonably quite and free parking make a good choice for business travel if extra features are not important.

Stunning view with a nice walkway along the marina. Unfortunately the "hot" breakfast was lukewarm both days of my stay.

We usually stay here when in the East Bay. This time we came to see Bruce Springsteen at the Oracle Arena which is a ten minute drive. They have recently remodeled the rooms with new furniture, flooring, fridge, microwave and TV. Nice and quiet at the marina with good parking.
