        Location and room comfort.

        Front desk staff seemed detached and unfriendly.

        The staff was very helpful and friendly, they were GREAT.

        I can't think of anything that I didn't like about the Best Western Plus Marian Shores Hotel. We came back from my niece's wedding after midnight and couldn't find a parking spot, so I went in and talked the the staff. Alex was very very helpful in solving the problem for my wife and myself.

        Great place to stay!.. I search for hotels with comfortable beds.. This one had new beds.. Very comfortable! Convient location..

        The hotel changed its name to the Best Western Inn and Suites.. Forgot to tell us or update us after booking.. Hence looking around for the wrong hotels.. The desk chair was out together wrong.. Went to sit in it and noticed the feet way out in the front.. Could oif busted my head.. The staff were quick to take care of it though!!

        Location. Close to Cannons Restaurant, where we were attending a wedding on July 4th.

        NO PARKING!!! Couldn't check-in till after 3:30p.m. because contractors' trucks and equipment all over parking lot! And after that time, half of spaces were still not useable.... Had to move our vehicles by 9:00 a.m. on day of check-out, even though check-out was 12 noon! Said rooms remodeled, but our mattress was not new. Very lumpy/sunken.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Had some work going on and the pool closed which was slightly off- putting at first impression, the but room/suite was clean and recently refurbished. A modern motel/hotel on the pch but not noisy, 5 minutes walk to the beach and some chain restaurants and an independent bar/restaurant. A nice locality in its own right, as most seem along this coast, but also a convenient base about half way between la & San Diego I.E. circa 90 mins each. Typical mid-market chain and tight for parking spaces when full, but overall a pleasant stay.

        Great location and nice breakfast offerings. Pet friendly is definitely a great feature.

        Room faced the busy Pacific Coast Highway so there was traffic noise.

      • Group of friends

        Handy to public transport, nice location near the beach.

        Staff were not always helpful and there were some communication problems. Room was small and the bathroom was miniscule. Shame about the noise from the remodeling.

        This was my second time staying there. The location is perfect - within walking distance of the harbor. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and have an awesome whirlpool bathtub. I also like that it is quiet and that breakfast is free.

        I know it is common for hotels nowadays, but I hate having to pay extra for parking.

      • Older travelers

        Very nice room, with a comfortable bed.

        There was some street traffic sound that could be heard through the air conditioner. A $10 fee for parking was not included the room charge. It was waved after I protested the charge.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Breakfast.

        The parking fee,noisy construction, and tight parking.

        Clean and quite large rooms with very comfortable beds. Breakfast was good and the only slightly negative thing would be the 10 $ charge for parking.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        good location, clean freindly helpful staff.

        Hotel was good. Booking reservation had a one day change and it was not in their system our reservation was lost. The accomodated us fortunately and honored the Booked.net $.Not their fault.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        1. The hotel daily charge of u$ 10.00 for car park is a rip off. It was never shown in Booked.net when I made my reservation. 2. Breafast area is very small and we ended up eating in our room during the weekend. 3. Cheap quality of breakfast especiallu during the weekend. Many items were missing from the bufffet. Even the auto pancake machine which was available during the weekdays disappeared in the weekend!

      • Single
        6.6

        It was close to the event I was attending.

        But since it it located on pch it was a little noisy traffic wise. Really nothing special but it was clean.
