This may have been our fourth stay at the Dana on Mission Bay. We stay here when visiting our college-student daughter. We decided to take advantage of a mid-winter price break and it was not like winter at all; a couple of days in the 80s. We always get a bay view room and enjoy watching the scene. This time,...

Highly recommend this hotel. It is a very clean and modern facility and is very, very nice. Great location and convenient to other attractions. The service couldn't be better and is second to none. Would have no second doubts about returning.

My husband and I loved this place. The area is so quiet and peaceful. Our room was clean and spacious. Housekeepers did a good job. The restaurant on site was great. The French toast was excellent. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. This hotel is just a short drive to major attractions, and we were able to get... More

Upon arriving, Janessa great! She was made us feel welcome and was very helpful and informative. Beautiful landscaping surrounding the buildings. The room was relaxed and inviting and offered a nice view. Beds are very comfortable. Parking is close and easy and quick access to the beach and boardwalk.
