The hotel is tucked away, almost invisible from Potrero Avenue coming from San Pablo, yet very, very close to the freeway (very easy on going westbound toward SF). It's a nice-looking building with tiny lobby, nice rooms, pleasant staff (who may seem a bit unresponsive, but that may be because English is not their first language). Surprisingly little freeway noise, so it actually seemed peaceful. Adequate security for the parking lot. The breakfast room is too small but the food offered is fairly standard "continental" fare at medium-priced hotels these days. Pricey on the weekends, considerably lower on Sunday thru Thursday - typical of the Bay Area. Easy walk to Denny's for non-special meals, but need a car for other, serious restaurants along San Pablo Avenue. We stayed only one night, but it was a very pleasant stay.

"Better than expected! Great choice for the area!"
My extended family stayed here recently, as this hotel gave us a chance to all stay in the same room and we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and layout of the room, also by the courtyard and the continental breakfast. The staff were very friendly as well. It is a unique, homely experience to stay here.

I needed a basic hotel while attending a local weekend workshop. I found The Marina Inn to be clean, comfortable, quiet, and reasonably priced. Also, the staff was pleasant and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again, as well as recommend to a others.

The Bay Trail runs along Richmond’s 32-mile shoreline to connect the Marina Bay Parks, including the Ferry Point Loop and a World War II memorial park. Small-town charm permeates historic Point Richmond where restored Victorian buildings house locally owned stores and restaurants and salty bay breezes fill the air. The Richmond-San Rafael Bridge crosses the bay to link the city to Marin County.
