First and foremost, this is a resort property. If you are not comfortable paying resort fees and valet parking, you might want to choose another location. The property also does not have a club lounge so Marriott gold and platinum members will miss out on this perk including free breakfast. If you want to try something other than the onsite... More

I decided to spend a special birthday celebration in a city that I once lived, but hadn't been back to in many years. The Laguna Cliffs Marriott resort and spa in Dana Point was the ideal place to spend my two days. The resort is quite large and grounds are expansive. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and...

I was at this resort for a business meeting. It is in a good location, near the beach. However the hotel does nickel and dime you, but I guess that is expected for a resort. The hotel charges a resort fee of $25 per night over and above what ever room rate you are paying. There is no self parking... More

I stayed here for a wedding in late October, I will say that until checkout everything was pretty nice. A bit annoying that there is no parking and you have to valet ($30), but whatever I knew that going in. Upon checking out I noticed a $250 fee added on my room, so I contacted the operator and was transferred... More

Pros-location is great with fantastic views of the ocean and still close to expressways. Rooms are very nice and up to Marriott Standards. Nice pool and hot tub. Nice health fitness facility. Cons-$34 for valet parking and no self parking offered. Can understand the valet parking because there is not a lot of room to park but $34 a little... More

The hotel and setting are pretty. You do feel like you are on vacation when you drive up. Please note that we booked on Priceline and paid much less than another person in our party who booked with the hotel directly. We heard about the extra fees and decided to try Priceline to offset some of those costs and fortunately... More

This was our third stay. It continues to meet our expectations of Marriott properties. Most of the rooms even though "resort view" have a partial ocean view. I'm looking at our bill: Fees and taxes came to $45.80 and parking was $32. Unfortunately, no viable self-park options here unless you are willing to hike a ways up/down a steep hill.... More

Okay so I booked a room for $200 on a hotel site. Fair price for one person spending about 12 hours in the room total. I wanted a nice and safe place to stay. Laguna Cliffs is all this. But then the extras are tacked on. Parking: $34. REALLY $34 is that necessary. If I was there a few more... More
