My kids and I booked a standard room at the rate of $107, plus $14 resort fee & $20 parking fee. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived quite early, they allowed us early checkin and the room was a slight upgrade. I had told them that I have a handicap placard and had a hard time walking so they... More

We stayed at the Dana for business. Our company had 9 rooms that were prepaid 7 months in advance including the parking/resort fees. On check in, the front desk informed us that the rooms with the king size bed we paid for were not available. Instead, we were placed in rooms with double beds. The room itself was clean and...

The pool and sandbox were nice. The restaurant was moderate price and the food was good. There was nice outside seating available there. The staff was... More

We found the surroundings a lovely retreat venue. The staff were tremendous & accommodating. My husband broke his foot our 1st day on vacation & they gave us a wheelchair to use for our stay & moved us to a handicap access room at no extra charge. The Firefly café was an excellent spot for entertaining family & friends with... More

The Dana on Mission Bay. Biggest attraction is... drum roll please. It's on the Bay! Situated with nice views and a nice marina and a path to stroll along to enjoy the water and birds. Close to Sea World. If that is a priority. Although the staff was pleasant, the hotel itself is older, the rooms are small. At least... More

The hotel is in a good location with lots of activities. You can walk to mission beach. There is also a shuttle bus that will take guests to nearby locations but there seemed to only be one, I'm not sure if you can reserve it or not. The rooms were clean and livable, but about the standard I would expect... More

Our First room assigned was in the building facing the Roadway. . .I mean RACEWAY ~ OMG it was NOISY TRAFFIC like standing at a busy intersection. After an hour my husband couldn't stand it any longer and requested a room change. A water view is considered an upgrade $25 or $20 depending on what they decide to offer you?... More

The wedding couple took care of arranging a block price and we were instructed to call the hotel, identify ourselves as part of the... More

My son & I arrived at the resort around 11:00 a.m. checkin was not until 4:00 so we were going to leave our belongings at the front desk. The receptionist (Shannon) was very kind providing us with a room. I paid for a partial view but wasn't happy with it so we asked for different room with view of the... More

We checked in & they put us right on the water! I loved the grounds there, very clean & pretty; both restaurants were good & we didn't have to get in the car & drive; it was so nice just to walk to both places! Stayed here 2 nights & loved the quiet, the rooms were very clean, decorated nice... More
