Our family had a nice time and the location was great. 2 adults and 2 boys ages 11 and 13. One boy slept on the floor in a sleeping bag since they would not provide a roll away bed. (fire safety). The room was nice and quite. We went to Salt Creek Beach and it was great. We would stay... More

This place is old, beat and it stinks! The walk to the room had me worried. There is no air-conditioning in the hall and there is NO air flow (it's July). The hallway smelled like chicken, the carpet looks 50 years old and it’s dark. My room smelled like an old lady's hair caught fire. The paint was peeling from... More

This hotel was in short walking distance to the California Wine Festival, which was the purpose of my visit. Went with my mom and aunt and had a great time! So many great restaurants nearby, staff was friendly and the location was ideal. Room was comfortable for the price and seemed well kept up enough other than the bathroom which... More

Stayed here for a wedding in Laguna Beach. The rooms are really basic, but other hotels in the area are very expensive, so this is an option if you are on a budget. Pros: Nice location with marina views and plenty of shops and places to eat within easy walking distance. Very near a beach area with various types of... More

You definately get what you paid for. When we booked we were told we were getting the last room. We were not told it would be a smoking room (I have asthma and would not have taken it). Upon check in we were informed it hadn't been used by any smokers for at least 2 years. So now they're lying... More

We had a wonderful stay at this Hotel. It was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast was deliciously fresh with lots of choices. Best of all, it was within walking distance (5 minutes) of everything we had traveled there for; Fishing, Dolphin and Whale watching, shopping. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Our... More

We decided to stay overnight after going out from Dana Point whale watching and chose this inn because it was at the harbor. Glad we did! Great service, good room with comfortable bed and nice kitchen area. Did miss our HDTV but then we didn't stay there to sit in front of a tv. You can walk to almost everything... More

As always the Dana Point Marina Inn did not disappoint, the Hotel has always been a consistent establishment. It’s not a Marriott but they’ve never claimed to be either. The room was clean; the general condition of the Hotel was clean and functional. We called and requested a roll in bed and told the desk we would be late due... More

Beautiful view of the harbor. Walking distance to restaurants. Room was comfortable. Breakfast was spartan but acceptable.
