The view with the comfortable room plus the poolS is the complete package! Love picking your morning meal and time the night before and there it is delivered so you can enjoy the view from your balcaney. Plus parking by your room building really makes it nice to load and unload. I still have dreams of this place. I will... More

This hotel has everything you need and is with in walking distance to Sea World if you don't mind the extra walking you all ready have in store for the day. They do offer a shuttle but we always walk when we come. With the location on the bay it's great to let the little kids play by the water... More

We had a great stay at the Dana. We came with the kids for our 10 year anniversary. Everyone was extremely curtious and helpful. We did stay in the newer side and understood in advance there would be a parking fee. The rooms are very clean and it's a very quiet resort. The views are beautiful and the resort is... More

We specifically looked for a place to stay close to some activities we had planned. As it turned out, we were right across the street from the place we were taking a whale watching trip...plus right next door to Sea World!! It was also only a short trip to Old Town. The hotel was very nice; the room was exceptionally... More

I've been coming to the Dana for the past 10 years. I just find that it's convenient and I love the location overlooking the Marina. It's walking distance to the beach (within a mile). It has two pools and hot tubs. I love the one overlooking the marina. I stayed 3 nights and just hung out at the pool and... More

I recently travelled solo and stayed at this hotel for 5 days. Everything about my stay was great, from check-in to check-out. Friendly staff all around. The food in the main restaurant Firefly was fantastic. I had the sea bass and wasn't expecting too much really, but was more than pleasantly surprised at the quality and deliciousness of my meal....

The Dana Inn is across from my Moms marina and it feels like home every time I go. I must admit what I love the best is how well the staff treats us every time. They always seem to be able to go the extra mile for us in every way. Also, the pool is a fabulous place for the... More
