We were disappointed in the rooms for the price which they need to updated. Plus you can hear your neighbors which is annoying. They are old and small. The good part were their restaurant breakfast and location! if you planning to go to Sea World and The zoo. We walked to Sea World is a long walk but my family... More

We just got home from our family vacation to The Dana in Mission Bay. We usually stay at a neighboring hotel, but thought we would try it out. We are SOO glad that we discovered what will now be our new vacation hotel spot in San Diego!! The Dana offers everything a family would need, complete with a rental company... More

The Dana on Mission Bay is the only place I stay when I visit San Diego. I repeatedly stay at this hotel for the obvious reasons of course - the view and the convenient location - but there is so much more to be said about this hotel. Marcus at the front desk is by far one of the friendliest,... More

Sadly we only stayed one night.. But this place is the perfect place for family vacations. Its's right down the road from Sea World. The staff were amazing and understanding! We had a standard room but it was still amazing!! I absolutely recommend this hotel to all families and will be returning next time we are in San Diego!

This was my third time visiting this place and we have had great experiences every time! John at the front desk put us in a great room on the first floor in the bayview section. I highly recommend spending the extra money to get a bayview room if you have kids. They can run out to the park straight front... More

This is our first time staying at this hotel but it has been very pleasant! I work at a hotel myself so I of course have standards because of that! The room is very clean and the service is exquisite! We laid by the pool and the servers were attentive and courteous. We went to the bar and Shannon the... More

My family and I have stayed at The Dana the past 2 Spring Break vacations. We feel at home at this hotel and love the food at The Blue Pearl and Firefly. All the employees are friendly, warm, and helpful. Both of the pools are perfect for kids of all ages. The hotel is a quick shuttle ride to Sea... More

Loved it! Was there in November 2013 and back in June 2014. Fantastic location easy toget around to the high points of SanDiego. Family Friendly, nice pool, great view. Upgrade the room to Delux, well worth it! Going back June 2015
