This is really overpriced for what I got. It was 140 a night for a room by the noisy ice machine and elevator facing the parking lot. The air conditioner is placed in such a way that the air blows right on your head when in bed. The paint is chipped and the Formica on the furniture is also chipped.... More

This hotel is in Dana Point Harbor and backs up to the marina. The rooms are on the small side but are clean and comfortable. There is a refrigerator in the room and ice/vending machines are available. No restaurant but they do serve a continental breakfast every morning. The shopping and dining area of the marina is right next door... More

Well, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the mixed reviews I had read, so I gave it a whirl for myself. I had to travel alone this trip, as my hubby got called away for business, so I was going to be even more sensitive to the accommodations. I was very satisfied with my decision. It's a great... More

My wife and I stayed at the Dana Point Marina Inn to be close to the Catalina Express office. The hotel was very economical and clean. The desk staff were friendly. Our room was equipped with a king bed, which was very firm. We liked that. The fridge worked, but took some time to get to a reasonable temperature. Room... More

I booked in January to stay in may and had 30 rooms booked for our kids wedding. I was the one they treated with disregard. I requested a room close to my daughter the bride and a view. My room was at the opposite end of the hotel. I had knee surgery and kept asking daily to be closer. They... More

We were able to book several rooms here for our wedding guests and it was everything we hoped for. The honeymoon suite was exactly what we needed and the other suites had plenty of room for everyone to get ready and head to the wedding location. They also had regular rooms available for my friends who didn't want a suite... More

This hotel is in a perfect location for enjoying the Marina activities and the harbor area in general. It is close to parks, beaches, walking trails and wonderful views. Many of the rooms have been renovated and they are in the process of updating the rest. We stayed in an updated room - we did see non renovated rooms which... More

We needed a room for one night for we boarded the Catalina Express the next morning. The hotel is located across a packing lot from the boarding dock, so the location is excellent. Many fine and fun restaurants are located within a short walking distance from the hotel. Our room was The Deluxe Harbor room located on the 3rd. Floor... More
