I recently stayed here for 2 nights with a group of 9 women. We were offered the Doheny suites by the general manager of the hotel. I think his name was peter. He was very helpful and accommodating. He went above and beyond helping us with the details. The rooms were very clean and the staff we interacted with were... More

Overall nice stay, but since I had to conduct some business while there, the internet gave me problems at this property. I did not eat breakfast there this trip as I ate out with business associates. I like the fact that I can open the windows for fresh air and not use the a/c.

The hotel is well positioned to walk to Dana Harbour, town and Doheny beach. The reception staff are exemplary in their friendliness, efficiency and welcome. The room we had was a mini suite, which was well appointed and spacious. It had a small kitchen too, which would appeal to a family. It also had the added bonus of insulating the... More

Everyone at the hotel was very friendly. We had a queen suite it was very roomy. This hotel was very clean. If we were in the area I would stay there again. This hotel is on the main street traffic a little nosey but OK, I use ear plugs.

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and the staff is very courteous, professional, and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying for business or pleasure. It is close to the harbor area and restaurants, etc.

We stayed here 2 nights + feel it was a very good value and would return if in the area. The only thing that we noticed was some street noise from PCH which really wasn't a big deal. The rooms seemed freshly renovated.

This is just as good as the fanciest hotels which cost much more. Great Location! Super nice staff! Great rooms! We took about 10 rooms and they were all great especially for the price we paid. We recommend getting the suites with 2 queen beds. or the 1 King room with the jacuzzi.

Never stayed at a best western before, but just needed a place to stay while visiting the in laws. I am normally a SPG or Marriott guy but was didn't need the extra frills for this stay. The whole hotel was so clean that my wife even took the time to comment. Rooms were big and the Jacuzzi tub was... More
