Balcony overlooks the ocean. Sunset is beautiful and breakfast on the deck is delightful. Room was comfy and accommodating for senior citizens. A stroll along the beach to a nearby Mexican restaurant for dinner was a plus for location of Inn.

We have been to Dana Point and stayed at the Laguna Cliffs for the last 5 years. This year our plans changed at the last minute and we were left scrambling. We were quite surprised when the reviews on trip advisor were better for the Best Western than for Laguna Cliffs... I called the hotel and spoken with Steven that... More

A great location for walks on the beach and you can also walk to several restaurants. The whole facility was extremely clean and well kept. Steve Wang was very helpful in checking us in. The whole staff was friendly. The bed and bedding were great.

I have made reservations for my husbands birthday and Steve Wang at the Hotel was superb in his customer service. He went above and beyond our expectations in describing the property and taking care of our reservations. He even called the Chart House to request VIP service for our birthday dinner since their hotel has a preferred relationship with the... More

My wife was at an artist's workshop for a week. I used the facility, relaxed, read and just enjoyed myself. Hotel staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful if anything was requested. Directly across the street from the beach and within walking distance of three restaurants. Excellent locaton.

It is Saturday evening at the height of the summer season along the coast. I arrive. There are signs that say "sold out" BUT, I have a reservation. Unluckily, I had accidentally made the reservation for Friday night. Two things follow. I will be charged as a 'no-show.' I have no place to stay. Even as I am melting in... More

The excellent review is partly because of the really helpful attitude of the staff here - we only have Steve's name as he was helpful as soon as we arrived in sorting out paying for the toll road the satnav took us on on the way to Dana Point - his help was much appreciated and a great relief.

Older facility but very well kept, we were in room 206. Close to elevator and to sun deck. All employees were great. Close to everything. 5 minutes to harbor and Catalina Express . Highly recommended. Front desk employees provided excellent restaurant recommendations.

This hotel is a great value. Location is perfect and the rooms are quite nice with both private patios and a larger shared one with outstanding views. More impressive is the staff is super friendly and will do whatever you need. Bikes, mats for the beach, suggestions, etc. Maryann and Steve at the desk are great. We will definitely be... More
