We stayed here four nights over Thanksgiving break 2014. We have been making frequent trips to the San Diego area over the last several months staying in a variety of hotels near there with recent stays at four Best Western hotels in the area. So far, this has been the most well-managed hotel of our many recent stays. They went... More

We stayed here for two nights during our trip to California. We liked the location as it was within walking distance to restaurants. The room, along with the property, were very clean and well maintained. The complimentary breakfast was also very good. If we are in this area again, we will definitely stay here. Loved the small town feel of... More

Nice room, very clean, they gave us an upgrade that had a private room and a balcony. Very nice two t.v. We were able to take our dogs which was a nice touch. On busy street but if we shut the patio door was able to block the noise from the street. Loved the breakfast, omelets, meat, pancakes, yogurt etc.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 18 nights in December 2014 into January and enjoyed the location and our stay. The room was very clean and comfortable, but the exit door on the third floor was busy and noisy. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful and we plan to stay there again in the future. Smiles from Vancouver,... More

Very Clean, and Neat; an excellent location to basically everything in the area. Reasonably priced. Friendly service. Overall, an excellent facility. Can not find fault with anything really. We really enjoyed our stay, and would like to go back some day, and we would not hesitate to stay at that facility. Was very convenient, and certainly did the job.

Great overnight while waiting for the Catalina Ferry. Easy access to the Ferry Dock. Great parking and the King Suites are very comfortable. Breakfast is OK and a nice patio is located next to the pool for enjoying drinks & snacks.

The place was quiet and well maintained. The parking fee was waived since I'm a Best Western Reward member. WiFi Internet worked no problem. Would definitely return to the property in my next business trip to the area.

We liked staying at this hotel mainly for the comfortable room and beds, cleanliness and friendly staff. We did not like having Pacific Coast highway traffic right off our balcony. The access to the beach is about a ten minute walk to the crosswalk and across the highway...the beach is lovely. There are restaurants in the area, but they are... More

I have mixed feelings about reviewing this property, because I'm afraid that if more people stay here it won't be available when we want to. We lived in Dana Point for 7 years and walked by this hotel when it was a Holiday Inn Express, many times. We stayed here over Christmas this year (2014).First and foremost the Staff was... More
