With over $1.5 million in renovations in 2012, the BEST WESTERN Marina Shores Hotel will bring comfort and splendor to your stay whether you are traveling for business or pleasure. Start your day with a visit to our complimentary breakfast bar, our newly remodeled fitness center or our heated outdoor pool. If you have the time, enjoy them all!

Our king whirlpool suites offer a look and feel that usually are found only at pricier resorts. Our two room suites afford the added space for families or the businessperson who needs a hotel room to double as an office. Just step out onto your own private balcony and you can take in a morning sunrise or bask in a peaceful Pacific sunset.

Even our standard single king bed or two queen bedded rooms come with added comforts you might not expect to find at a mid-priced hotel. All our rooms have jetted tubs, large flat panel televisions, a desk with ergonomic chair and free wireless Internet. The plush pillow top mattress will be the crowning touch to a perfect day.

Parking is available at a nominal, per night fee.
