Visiting from Silverdale, WA to watch Seahawks vs Chargers. The Dana was recommended by a co-worker who never even has stayed here. After reading reviews we were very pleased choosing this location for our weekend anniversary trip. After we deboarded the plane we called to get picked up and the driver arrived within the time specified over the phone. We... More

Stayed here when spending a short break in San Diego. I was pleased with my choice. I ended up, upgrading to a Marina view, which cost me $20 a night extra, but I was glad I did. Loved it. The food at the restaurant was good, lovely walks along the Marina, and I enjoyed the cycle hire and kayaking. I... More

I loved my experience with The Dana. Marcus was very helpful with all my out-of-towner questions and such a great attitude! My room looks out over the water and is so bright and clean. I would definitely come back again.

We stayed three nights at the Dana. This is a older property that is well kept. We has a second floor room overlooking the marina. Most attractions are fairly close. Sea World, Belmont Pike, and downtown, old town, embarcadero are within 5-8 miles. The room had a microwave, small refrigerator. and Keurig Coffee maker. The TV was a 40" flat... More

Lovely place to stay, nice pool and hot tub, but extremely expensive. Walking distance to Sea World which was handy. Reception staff could be better. The attached restaurant was handy but again expensive. It was difficult to line up after being in the pool. Someone told us there was pool side service but we did not have any for the... More

This property exceeded all my expectations. My husband & I stayed for 4 nights over Labor Day. We enjoyed the nightly fireworks that were shot off at SeaWorld. We could stroll down to the docks and watch. There was plenty to do. Paddle Boarding, jet skiing, riding bikes, fishing, walking or running along the 27 miles of trails right there.... More

Great property with two pools and tropical landscaping. Front desk staff was courteous. They offer some unique specials such as a Sea World package and a birthday trip where you stay 2 nights and get the third night free. I tried to book this package but there was no availability so I decided to only stay here 1 night. We... More

This was a fantastic place to stay for the end of the holiday. Easy access to all areas for San Diego, mission bay, la jolla. Very helpful staff when advice assistance was required. The restaurants provide good food and wine. There are great amenities on site as well.

We stayed here randomly 3 years ago on our honeymoon for what was supposed to be a 2-day stop in San Diego before moving up the coast for the rest of our trip. We loved the Dana, and the area, so much that we ended up staying for a full week; and on returning to San Diego 3 years later,... More

Just thought I'd drop a line to say thanks - again - for the wonderful experience at the Dana. This makes the 8th or 9th year for Sharee and me to visit your wonderful resort. We had a bumpy start to our vacation with a disappointing dinner at the Firefly on our first night. Sad about this because we enjoyed... More
