This hotel was ok. We did stay in the older section. Room was typical hotel room, two double beds and a window. The plus was that there was a fridge and we were close to the pool. Landscaping was nice around the pool area. Not a lot of restaurants near by. The shuttle for Sea World was nice to have... More

The carpet in our room was filthy, giving black, dirty feet if you dared to walk barefoot. The bathroom definitely looked like it was under renovation- not the opposite. Also, I asked to borrow a pair of scissors to wrap a wedding gift. You would have thought I asked the clerks to fly to the moon the way they acted.... More

Checked in Sunday 8/2 out on Tuesday 8/4. Room was not ready so I cordially agreed to return later in the day. Booked online at $139 per night. While attempting to check in the first time, the front desk was useless and I would have preferred the personality of a kiosk. When I returned, the lady in front of me... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, the room was a nice size. We paid for view of the harbor, which was on the 1st floor and it was really a view of the parking lot in front of the harbor, save your $$ and do not book harbor view. The beds were ok, we just came from a night stay... More

Stayed at the Dana Point Marina Inn for 5 nights. For the price this is a so so hotel in a great location. The surrounding harbour is very picturesque and town of Dana Point is very safe and friendly with great access to Laguna and San Clemente via the PCH. The harbour itself and the beach adjoinging it provided great... More

Checked into a room that was suppose to be nonsmoking but smelled of old smoke and nauseating air freshner. Room was old, dark, musky. King bed with only 2 twin pillows. The bathroom door would not close because it was warped. The bathroom sink and tub were chipped, and mold under the calking. Complained to hotel desk and they offered... More

Yes, the Dana Point Marina Inn is centrally well located and essentially very clean. The problems arise when you actually expect to rest there. From the moment we arrived until our departure the next morning, the place was as noisy as a bus station. The bar crowd wanders back all evening, speaking loudly; car horns sound as the vehicles are... More

I read the other reviews on tripadvisor and stayed here during my recent vacation. You can't beat the proximity to cute souvenir shops, bars and restaurants and you can be in Laguna Beach in about 15 min if you take PCH and Hwy 5 is just 5 min away. Perfect spot for getting around. That is not to mention -... More

My husband and I love Dana Point, but had never stayed at this hotel before. It's on the marina, and everything is walking distance...restaurants, shops, water. (Make sure to check out the hidden beach behind the Ocean Institute!) The standard room was clean and spacious. It includes a kitchenette with full size fridge, sink, coffeemaker, stove and oven. A few... More
