My family and I stayed here for three nights, and didn't want to leave. Not only do Fernando and his wife (the lovely couple who runs the hotel) take pride in their facility, they made us feel like family. I had several options of hotels to book for this stay, and opted for this one, due to the reviews I... More

The parking here is an issue if you have a large vehicle, the eastern side of the garage has a yellow warning bar set lower than the warning bar at the entrance of the garage. My Yukon XL hit the warning bar and this scratched the roof leaving permanent damage. At night the garage gets so full that with a... More

Everytime I travel to southern California I stay in this hotel because the staff is so amazing. Staying in this hotel reminds me of the kind of service I get in small, family run inns throughout Europe. The owners truly care about the comfort of their guest and reputation of their hotel. They want you to be happy enough to... More

Just wanted to boost the ratings because this place deserves it. Spent ten nights all around California and this place deserved two nights. Friendly staff, cute area. Rooms were large and comfortable. They made me feel welcomed and attended to my every need.

We spent one night there last Thursday and were really impressed with the friendly service of the staff there! Very knowledgable and helpful recommending places to visit for short stay. Room has microwave and working fridge. And continental breakfast included too!

We had a fabulous time at the Best Western Plus Dana Point! I honestly have never felt so welcomed, valued, comfortable and safe as I did at this hotel. Fernando and his family treated us with such care and kindness. They are there night and day working around the hotel and making it just right for your stay. They have... More

This is one of the smaller Best Westerns that I've stayed in, but it was as nice. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the breakfast was great, and the ocean view was well worth it. I thought the room would be noisy because it was close to the street (Pacific Coast Highway), but the double-pained windows drowned out... More

This hotel has a boutique feel to it. The staff is very friendly and so accommodating. Very refreshing to have staff interact in friendly yet professional manner. LOVE the view from the ocean view rooms, great balcony for a large group, quiet sitting areas throughout. Quick walk over the pedestrian bridge to the beach.

A friendly staff greets you here, and the courtyard setting is charming. This hotel lacked a small convenience/gift shop for items like aspirin or toothbrushes, but is in walking distance of SUNSETS BAR CAPISTRANO -- a great restaurant/bar with open air indoor & outdoor seating, great service and a distinctive menu. BW Dana Point is only a couple of miles... More

I've stayed here a few times and always had a great experience. The staff is very nice and helpful, can't beat the view, right across the street from the sand and ocean and just a few short miles up PCH is Doheny State Beach, plenty of great restaurants, shopping, water sports etc. The beds are very comfy and it's obvious...
