I would highly recommend this hotel to stay. For the money it was hard to beat. It was a short walk to the beach and the views were very nice. Also convenient to the Dana Point harbor with many sights to see. Being on the main highway was also nice. The management went out of there way on service. The... More

This Best Western's location was the key to our making a reservation here. You can cross the highway and have your feet in the sand in minutes! An overpass about 1/10th of a mile north makes that possible. There are good dining options within walking distance. We opted for Italian and walked to Agostinos--a family run place with decent food.... More

We stayed for 8 nights recently and enjoyed our stay. One thing to note if booking through hotwire/expedia or other travel sites, you will likely be charged a resort fee of $14 per night by the hotel - it is not included in the rates quoted by these travel sites. After talking to the very nice manager at the hotel,... More

Stayed here for the night while hiking from San Clemente to Newport Beach. Location was perfect and the staff was outstanding. Would definitely recommend. Great value. Room was very clean and well furnished and beds were very comfortable.

We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus for five days, and had a very nice visit. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location across from the beach on the Pacific Coast Highway was terrific, and the room was very spacious and clean.

We had a street facing room with view, the room and bed was clean, comfortable and as expected. The sofa in the living room was dated and some of the furniture was drab, but the value and quality was good. Breakfast room is crowded, and they need to expand it because there was a crowd and some people couldn't find... More

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.
