We had a beautiful view of the bay and spent four wonderful days at The Dana on Mission Bay. The food and service was excellent, the room was spacious and the view spectacular. Anna and Kelly were delightful at the Blue Pearl (great breakfast), and Ted was extremely helpful at the boat rental. The service is excellent and we had... More

I stayed here on a business trip and everything was great. Front desk staff was accommodating and checked me in at 10am even though checkin was at 4. Shannon and Marisa helped me they went out of their way to get my room ready! I had to shower and get ready for a meeting so this was really helpful. Room... More

We just stayed at the Dana for 5 nights and enjoyed every moment. The rooms and grounds are kept clean and updated. Our two year old loved sitting on the patio while eating breakfast and watching all of the boats come and go. The pool area was clean and the food is always yummy. We ate breakfast at the Blue...

My wife and I had a booking issue with a private rental and had to book a room last minute. We booked the room using a bidding site and wound up at the Dana by chance. We were stunned by the level of service. From the front desk (Shannon) to guest services (Ted) we found the staff to be genuinely... More

We stayed here for a week in 2012 and it was fantastic. We could walk over the bridge to Mission Beach, shops and restaurants. We also hired bikes and rode around Mission Bay. Rooms at The Dana were clean and tidy. Had a good view of the marina - if you're into that! Was also walking distance to Sea World.... More

We stayed here on our last 2 nights in SD. Had a courtyard room lower floor, so opened onto tiny patio area and grass. Marina just around the corner. Some may say this was not a view room, but we loved the patio and trees. Lived in SD most of my life, was moving mom out. Still we loved it.... More

Stayed here for 3 days and loved it. The staff is friendly and on site Restaurant is very good. The location was very scenic and rooms very spacious. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place. Minutes away from Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, and close to Legoland.

Came here after purchasing a weekend stay at an auction and wasn't expecting much, frankly... but after our stay we believe we'll be returning next time we want a local stay on the water. We had a Premium Bayfront Room -- the only way to go here, as some of the wings are much older and overlook parking or roadways.... More
