This is my second review of this hotel, our first stay was last Christmas. This time I was driving North on PCH the Friday before the Doheny Blues Festival and I stopped in, assuming I had 0% chance of getting a room for Saturday night. The Doheny Blues Festival was starting the next day and usually many hotels sell out... More

I stayed at this hotel several times over the years, as well as lately, during my relocating back to California. The rooms are really nice, clean and comfy. The staff is under the direction of "Mr. Peter", the Manager of the hotel, and he is a superior individual who strives to make the guest comfortable. The staff is courteous, helpful,... More

This hotel was a good value for the location and amenities that this Best Western hotel offers. I drove to Dana Point for a quick one night get away and was extremely pleased with what I found. I would certainly come back again.

This is a great affordable hotel in a great location. The rooms are standard chain hotel rooms but everything appeared to be very clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and the parking was affordable at $10/night. We stayed in an end room facing PCH so we didn't hear our neighbors. The hotel is within walking distance to... More

This hotel is the best location for the Doheny Blues Festival or if you have a need to be near the harbor. The staff was so cheerful and happy it made dealing with them at check in and departure delightful. The rooms and bed were what someone would expect from this brand. The breakfast was very nice. Overall stay was... More

Located between Laguna Beach and San Clemente, this Dana Point hotel is located within easy walking distance of Doheny beach. The marina has a good variety of restaurants to choose from. The hotel staff provided excellent customer service.

My son was part of a school group that was staying at the Best Western Plus Marina Shores Hotel in Dana Point, California. I needed to wire some money to my son for his trip. Leslie LaBerge was extremely helpful with options for getting money to my son. She went to the Western Union location and picked up the cash... More

We have stayed here for years and still enjoy staying here, it's friendly, clean, and the BEST place for the Doheny Blues Festival! The second floor offers two rooms with double queen beds, with refrigerator, try to get as close to the opposite end of the lobby, by the pool, you will have a view of the ocean, and it's... More

We could walk to the festival without dealing with all the hassle of finding parking. We checked out on Sunday, but the hotel allowed us to leave our vehicle parked at hotel until after festival. This made our trip much more enjoyable as we didn't have to deal with all the crowd and lines to find a parking space. I... More

I have never seen anywhere with this fast of internet service nor a place that has the best location to everything you could ask or want. The rooms have to be the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in and that is saying a lot considering I go in each hotel room and re-clean everything and this hotel has the... More
