The Best Western inn by the sea is well situated on PCH1 across the road from the beach and a short walk from the main area of Dana Point. Rooms are of a very high standard with a high level of cleanliness. The beds are super comfortable and aid a really good nights sleep. Communal areas and landings are well... More

A great spot for an "old" hotel that needs a little more updating. The site is right across the street from the beach - albeit quite a walk over a tall overpass that crosses the Amtrak tracks. It is withing walking distance to a few restaurants. A pleasant but too brief stay.

Our original reservations were with the Double Tree by Hilton just up the street, but when we checked in we found out that our reservation with an ocean view was not the case. Instead, we had a freeway/hotel view from our balcony. In addition, the room was in need of repair, and the furniture needed a good scrub down. We... More

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times. The owners really make you feel welcome. It is very clean, quiet. There is a train track right in front but the trains do not blow whistles and it stops about ten at night. It is not an issue, The view is awesome. Dana Point offers a lot of recreation and great...

This place is spotless, right across the street from the beach. Owner upgraded us to an ocean view room. The beds were awesome. The beach across from the motel is rocky but a few hundred yards north is a very nice sandy beach. Breakfast was good too. Owner made me a waffle and the sausage was great quality. Would stay...

I really felt personally cared for - all interactions with the staff were positive. I loved my room and would request the same one next time I went. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The make -up mirror was a special add and the shower head was great. The hotel is kept beautiful and there were many open spaces... More

Great value for what you pay! Comfortable, clean rooms and very attentive staff. Location is convenient, close to the harbor, beach is across the street and parking is a plus (at the hotel and beach). Can be a little noisy with the highway and amtrak train but overall, well worth the price.

I had booked this stay because of the location on the Pacific coast Highway. What I did not know at the time is how amazing the set up was. The rooms are located in a way of a little " village". With a garden of plants, water fountains and soft music playing in the middle court yard. Having my room... More
