Very helpful management. Great location -- near Ocean Institute if kids are on an overnight from school. Was able to work using well-working in-room WiFi. Did have to go to coffee place to escape the Muzak that I think is there to cover freeway noise, but was still quite loud from inside my room.

would stay here again. Proprieters were friendly and accommodating. Location and view were awesome. The breakfast provided was simple but good. There were several good restaurants all within walking distance.

Stayed here prior to catching ferry to Catalina. Adorable hotel. Well maintained property. Owners very nice. Overall great experience. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance Perfect place to stay if you need somewhere to stay close to the beach which is across the street and to Dana Point Harbor.

We booked based on reviews. The rooms are fairly updated, quite clean, great TV. The front desk staff were nice. Outside areas of hotel are pretty worn looking & the 'breakfast' room is the smallest I've ever seen! Disappointing food. We've stayed in several BEST WESTERN PLUS hotels and I'm not sure what the criteria is, but this is not... More

Fernando and his team are most accommodating. I always look forward to staying at this Best Western plus by the sea. I love the made-to-order waffles and of course the ocean views. And if you've forgotten something the host will do his best to supply what you need. Simply outstanding!

I was moving cross country from NC to CA and my parents needed a place to stay until their flight back. I choose this because it's proximity to the beach, my friend's place, and price. I liked the cheerful colors online. The stay was phenomenal and way beyond my expectation. The management, Fernando and his family were so nice and... More

Serving as the launching pad for a multi-night trip to Catalina, the Best Western Plus Dana Point Inn-by-the-Sea offered far more than expected with excellent service from a professional (and likeable) staff. The breakfast was hot and filling. The room was comfortable and clean, and after we left, someone called to let us know that we'd forgotten a charger. (It... More

We stayed one night on our way up the coast. We had a partial view of ocean, which was right across the street. Joined other residents on second story terrace to watch sunset. Lovely experience. Close to Dana Point restaurants for dinner. Good breakfast and WiFi. Owners were more than accommodating. Highy recommend.

I have to start out by saying I did not head to this hotel in a good frame of mind. I had to gotten it through Hotwire and found that I paid more through Hotwire for a "Hot-Deal" than I would have if I had called the hotel directly. Needless to say, I am done with Hotwire. That said, let... More

Step out of your room, and you hear lovely, tranquil music as you view the beautiful garden, and the ocean. Sit on the balcony or in the hot tub and watch the sunset. This place is amazing and quite a value. Not too far from town, great restaurants within walking distance, the beach across the PCH, The staff was extremely... More
