overall a good experience, but noisy neighbors made it a little difficult to fall a sleep right away. Only reason I did not report the problem to staff was I fell asleep anyway due to extreme exhaustion.

In town for just a couple days for an event. Big group stayed here- was just find for our situation. The location was great. On the PCH so you hear some noise- but wasn't bad at all. Free breakfast, coffee etc was just ok.

Large room, quiet, clean, modern bathroom, convenient parking (though it was an extra $10 a day). The location was very good--much better than the sister Best Western in Dana Point, which is right next to the railroad tracks. Breakfast is about what you'd expect--nothing great, but there are plenty of good cafes in the area. All in all, a great... More

This hotel is a nice place to stay. The parking lot is difficult to maneuver in. If you had a pick-up truck, you would almost need someone to stand outside of your vehicle and guide you out of the parking spot. I do love the card key locks on the doors. All you need to do is swipe the card... More

Thank you to the staff for returning my forgotten item in the room and calling me to have it mailed to me!! I would highly recommend this hotel for the location and was very clean. Staff was also very friendly to us.

So I have been staying here probably 14+ days a year for the past few years. I'm a biz client but I'm sure it would be great for people visiting the Dana Point/San Clemente area for fun as well. I work 12-14 hour days when I am here and I want 3 things when I hit a hotel. Quiet. A... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced, clean hotel that was close to the ocean and this Best Western really fit the bill. In fact it exceeded our expectations. We slept well and each morning there was a nice free breakfast with a lot to choose from, including fresh fruit, yogurt, etc. Great Place!

We stayed just one night on our way to Catalina Island. The room was really nice & larger than I expected. It was a pleasant surprise to find a jacuzzi tub and two TVs in the room. The room was clean & comfortable. The king sized bed was cozy. BEST of all was the great FREE breakfast! Usually when a... More

easy location just off the motorway. Very friendly and helpful staff - even sorted out the automatic toll fee i incurred after my 11 hour flight from London. Pool is a little odd overlooking the main road and front rooms can be a little noisy but the back rooms are great. Clean, well serviced and pretty much as you expect... More
