I made my second visit to this hotel, which says it all really. The location is excellent, on the marina, which has a good variety of places to eat. It is away from all roads, so the location is quiet, yet a 5 minute walk into town or to Doheny beach. The rooms are big, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast is... More

We used United Miles so I don't know what it actually cost but I imagine about ninety. Yes, it's old. We found it to be perfect for our needs. Walking distance to Capt Dave's. Walking distance to restaurants the night we arrived. They gave us Andi's mints, love! Breakfast buffet was good. Our only complaint is we booked two queens... More

Location is the best part of this INN. Although they serve packaged breakfast goods, coffee & tea in the morning you are walking distance to good breakfast spot like RJ's. Walk along the shops for an outdoor cup of coffee and people watch in the marina. Try Harbor Grill for lunch or dinner. Channel 12 gets you a $50 dining... More

The hotel is located at to the Dana point harbor, access and parking are extremely easy. The rooms are comfortable with sufficient space. The price is very good value for money. The hotel needs to be refurbished, you can see everywhere, especially in the rooms that the hotel needs some fresh painting or some new carpet or tapestry. The hotel... More

We stayed here with 36 friends while touring the area on motorcycles. Nice accommodations and close to many great restaurants and shops. Nice pool area and breakfast selection. Everyone wants to go back again next year!

Pro(s) and cons for choosing the Marina: PROS The location of your establishment fit our needs perfectly. The pool and hot tub were fun (and unexpected) The room was in a quiet area and, fortunately for us, the bikers who were in the room next door were not party people. We enjoyed the in room coffee The location also gave... More

When we booked our whale watching excursion at Dana Point and the booking agent recommended this hotel so I trusted her recommendation since she said other customers have liked this "nice" hotel. Well it's anything but nice. It's so rundown and I think $98 is too much considering the shape of this place. I feel like $50 would be too... More

I stayed at the hotel that was booked for a wedding. Great price! I opted for no view since we were right there at the harbor. Good choice for me. Would definitely refer others to this hotel! Staff was great and helpful!

We stayed here one night while we were in town for a wedding. We didn't want to pay the extra money for a view of the harbor since we can easily walk outside and see it so we opted for the cheapest budget room which was on the ground floor. We were in room 105, a king size room. The... More

It was very clean and the staff were exceptional. We had a room with a balcony looking out to the ocean and to our surprise it had a living room and a kitchen sink. It's directly across the street from the beach. I would definitely go again!
