Great Place

25/11/2016 Charlie V, Santa Clarita, California

First thing to point out is the parking is $10 a night but if you have AARP or some other groups you belong to it's only $5 a night. Call ahead to see what qualifies. Hotel is pet friendly. Friendly ... more

Thank you for the fantastic review, Megan and we're super happy you "loved everything" about the Marina Shores. We especially appreciate your positive comments on our free breakfast because that is one of our industry's biggest challenges when it comes to people pleasing. Most hotel brands offer some kind of free breakfast to their guests, but a lot of travelers don't realize that these same hotels don't have actual restaurant facilities. It's not that easy to put out an appetizing spread each morning when your building was never designed to deliver an amenity like that. Our breakfast attendants work very hard to provide a wide variety of fresh and healthy options every day, from the hot egg and meat selections, all the way to the fruits, muffins and dairy choices. We truly appreciate your including recognition for their efforts in the review.
