This is our first stay at the Dana Point Marina Inn and all in all it met our needs. I should point out that this is an “older” motel with three floors and it’s starting to show its age. It seems that some rooms have been updated while ours was stuck it the 1980s (the 25” Tube TV gave it... More

Since late March and most of April of this year, my wife and I stayed at the Marina Inn almost every weekend. We have been guests there for over 14 years. We had relatives that had rented a 1 bedroom apartment there for 30 days and we visited them. As usual the rooms we has were spotless and in very... More

We were pleased with our clean, secure, and convenient location of DPMI. We noticed a plumbing problem upon checking in our room and the manager personally exchanged our room promptly. The pool and hot tub were clean. The breakfast room was well stocked. Will return here.

We travel through Dana Point occasionally, but I think we need to stop staying at Dana Point Marina Inn. It's located right down in the marina, which is great for early AM walks and watching the boat traffic and SUPs and kayakers. But the rooms are really showing their age. We arrived without a reservation and the unenthusiastic desk clerk... More

About the best thing I can say about this hotel is that the price is a great value for the area it is located. I’m by no means expecting perfection but when one encounters the same issue over and over at a hotel, well you have to wonder. Several family members recently stayed at this hotel and repeatedly room keys... More

Considering the area, The Dana Point Marina Inn was a bargain, had great amenities and a fantastic location. Located on the marina, the inn was within walking distance of 2 great restaurants that we tried as well as the best smoothie and bagel shop I have ever been to! We stayed here to have privacy while visiting some family who... More

Prior to making a reservation I specifically asked the front desk if the wifi worked well. I said I HAD to get work done and could not take a slow connection. The individual I spoke with said the connection was fast and nobody ever complained. In reality it runs at dial up speeds, so slooooww. beyond that its noisy at... More

We arrived, the outside of the hotel and lobby looked great, we had high hopes. Its next to the marina, great view from the patio in our room, next to the marina restaurants and shopping, and the price was great too. BUT, when we got to our room, and it was ten steps back. The bed was hard, squeaky, and... More

This is the third year we have stayed at the Dana Point Marine Inn and we plan to return next year. Our room and bathroom were very clean and the bed comfortable. The continental breakfast was quite substantial with plenty of choices. The ambiance was very welcoming and the staff helpful. Good value for money.

My husband I stayed here on a last minute trip to Dana Point in August. Its definitely an older and more run down location than we are used to, but it was still good. The property itself was a little old, the decor in the room was definitely outdated and could have used some replacements, but for being right on... More
