I stayed at this hotel based on the reviews. I was extremely impressed with the service.The manager-owner Fernando was very friendly and accommodating. He warmly greeted me and allowed an early check in. The room was comfortable and clean with a partial view of the beach across the street. The property has a lot of chairs to enjoy the garden...

We booked many rooms at this hotel for our wedding for an outrageous price. I stopped in to see what on earth I was getting for my money and found out it was a we don't want you here attitude from the general manager named Steve. Once he appeared at the desk from some back area after we stood there... More

I read the reviews and was curious if hotel was going to live up to its reviews. The reason I say that is we were traveling from Phoenix to the south Orange County area for a wedding, we stayed Friday night in Palm Springs at the Best Western Las Brisas and we were not impressed so I was skeptical. We... More

Located right across from Dohney State Beach. Great location. We liked our end room #210 with patio chairs out in front of room. We had a partial view of ocean. Best breakfast where manager Fernando & wife will even make you waffles with your breakfast.We liked the parking there & size of hotel (not too large). Will definitely return.

We stayed for 4 nights, and the first night was uneventful except they changed our reservations from 2 rooms with 2 queen beds to 2 rooms with 1 king bed and called it "upgrading" us free of charge. When I complained, they promptly changed it back but the change took 15-20 minutes which added to an already long day. The... More

Stayed there 2 nights and found the room clean and the bedding new. The property is across the street from the Pacific Ocean so beach time is right there. This is a great value for anyone who wants to stay in Dana Point

I stayed at this hotel because I had a nearby conference and i did not want to face the morning traffic from San Diego to Orange county. The bed was very comfortable and except for the cleanliness cover on the extra pillow which had hair on it, it was very clean. The thermostat did take a while to cool the... More

The room came with a micro, fridge and coffee maker complete with real coffee cups! It also had a large,... More

Our experience was very pleasant. The rooms were clean, attractive, and the staff was excellent in providing information re: places to visit, etc. The Inn is close to the beach which one can easily walk to. The hot breakfast was quite adequate. However, if feasible, I would recommend adding hot potatoes and peanut butter for those who are vegan. This... More

This a bit of a belated review for my stay in February, but had to write one: this Best Western is a great deal for the location. The room was pretty standard - basic amenities for a Best Western - and very spacious and clean. Sam, the manager, went above and beyond to make the stay comfortable. The view from... More
