This hotel is an older hotel on a very small piece of property, with everything jammed into a small space. Parking is tight, rooms are small, bathrooms smaller and breakfast and lobby areas cramped. It is in a great location and they do their best to make it nice. Definitely not luxury, but the price is not bad for the... More

On check -in we asked clerk about getting to Dana Wharf. She looked at a map and couldn't find it. Disappointing. A/C was so noisy we couldn't sleep. Told clerk on check-out. She didn't seem to care. Didn't make a note to have someone look at it. Comfortable bed, clean room, good breakfast. But overall seemed expensive for a pretty... More

Great location, rooms are fine, did not feel like a best western. Two blocks from the beach. Staff went out of their way to help us with a booking issue. Breakfast plentiful, they have a cool pancake machine. Need a few more tables to sit at, but it was fine. Only problem was noisy AC but otherwise great value hotel.

I stayed for 2 nights with my wife and my son (age 16 and autistic). We booked a suite room, so my son could use the pullout be and have his own space, complete with a TV. Great location for getting to a beautiful beach and a great marina area with outstanding restaurants, great parks, and great areas to walk/run.... More

Love the Best Western Plus hotels.. clean, nicely appointed, and a jaccuzzi right in the room.. SO nice. And a value for the money. We usually stay at the Laguna Brisas Best Western, but they were booked, so we chose Dana Point 7 miles south instead, and it was quite nice.

The property i within walking distance of Dana Point Harbor, where there are many harbor view restaurants and shops. The employees at this property were uniformly friendly and helpful. Everyone had a smile on their face! The only minor complaint was that the TV in the sitting room could not be heard whenever someone showered next door, as the volume... More

I do not usually stay at Best Western but because this was a last minute add on to our trip i rolled the dice a bit. We had a great time and the rooms were VERY clean. About 10 minute walk to the beach (saves you from paying to park). Staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. They even... More

Outstanding and caring staff, a place I would recommend for its location and great value. This is a hassle to fill out . Figure a way to make it shorter. Thank you. I have been trying to get out off here and it will not let me.

We picked this hotel because its location allowed us to visit nearby communities like Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano and Dana Point without changing hotels. Also, we got a good rate because we stayed three nights. The problems we encountered were such that we would not stay again, despite the hotel's location and price. Our reservation was screwed up and... More

I enjoyed my stay with Best Western. Awesome! Next to everything including the beach. Restaurants & shopping stores are right around the corner also. Beautiful location, place, & very affordable. The only thing I had a beef on was the parking area. Very tight. Of course, we are talking about beach front hotels. Space is very expensive.
