We have stayed here three times, and intend to stay here when we need a hotel in Dana Point. (We just purchased a house here, so after March 1 we are unlikely to need a hotel, so my "very likely" rating reflects the probability that we will direct our visitors from the East Coast here). We will also recommend it to family and friends. Dana Point is beautiful, and the hotel is conveniently located. There is a great breakfast restaurant across the street, and plenty of delicious dining in Dana Point. We had one minor glitch this time. We were in Dana Point for our anniversary, and to inspect the house we purchased. The first room assigned smelled of tobacco smoke. The desk clerk immediately moved us to a clean room with a large Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. We truly enjoyed our stay.
