Hello, I travel to south Orange County for business 2 times per month, I always book last minute, and I am able to get a room at a discounted price. Excellent customer service, comfortable beds, quiet property and all the staff are very friendly!!

For my 50th birthday, my mother gave me a 12 day trip to southern California, which is where I lived for many years but had to move back to Ohio a year ago. I've missed California like crazy! This trip was very special for me! I was able to see my dear friends, celebrate my 50th birthday, and enjoy the... More

The location and views are very nice. The hotel was not large but very nice. The room were big, comfortable and very clean. I believe this was a family operation and they were proud to present this as their place of business and your home away from home. There were restaurants within walking distance. The Dana Point Harbor is a... More

People at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is nothing fancy but price was good and people were nice. Free WiFi right across from the beach.

The location is beautiful, the rooms big and comfortable, breakfast is great and the staff are very helpful. We travelled by bike and they helped reinflate a flat tire with their electric pump. Nice balconies overlooking the beach.

A really cute hotel on a street facing the ocean. The operators of the hotel were very nice and very helpful. The hotel has a balcony overlooking the ocean. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a complimentary breakfast served in the morning. There are also restaurants within walking distance where you can have lunch or dinner. A very... More

I am a Dana Point local, and I love to stay at the BW Plus Inn-by-the Sea. I have stayed here for a few "Girls get-away" midweek trips. Also a great local place for when extra relatives visit, as it is affordable. The Inn-by-the-Sea is clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable. They make great... More

This hotel was located on PCH close to interstate 5. The hotel was nicely kept, inside and out. The gentleman who checked us in and out was professional, helpful and very glad that were part of the Best Western rewards program. I would highly recommend this hotel and will be staying here on future trips to the area.

This really is a nice hotel, but just not a great hotel. I bought a room through hotels.com, as the price was very reasonable for a nice weekend getaway. While it was nice, it did not quite live up to all the great reviews. Yes, there's a nice view if you have an oceanfront, balcony, but the street noise really... More
