I picked this hotel because it was the only one "on the beach" at Dana Point. I suppose it is the nearest building to the beach but to get to it you have to walk through Doheny Beach's campground. Also the hotel is surrounded by highway on 3 sides with little protection from the noise. The hotel is also quite a walking distance from the restaurants and shops of Dana Point so we had to drive or take a long walk everywhere. The location is just awful, not to mention the $22/day parking fee which we were not aware of when we booked. Aside from the location being a big disappointment, the hotel itself was fine. Our room was very large (queen bed with extra living room area), the bathroom poorly planned (the bathroom door opened into the tiny space so it had to be completely closed to use sink or shower), and the bed comfortable. The staff was helpful and responsive, albeit not altogether super friendly. Breakfast at the hotel was delicious. The parking situation was rough, especially when there was a wedding at the hotel one night and we waiting outside 15 minutes to park. All in all, it was a fine place if you aren't expecting beach front luxury and don't mind sleeping to the sounds of the freeway.
