“Best Western Dana Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Very nice place. Great service (looks to be family owned and operated). We did like the location because it is close to everything in Dana Point.

Note: It is very close to the beach, but not right on it. Although it has an ocean view, you need to walk down the street and across PCH to get sand between your toes. The train tracks are across PCH, but we did not hear a train at night. All of the hotels on PCH are the same from this perspective, so it's not a plus or minus for this property.

What a wonderful staff! Manager Steve and Fernando went out of their way to may everythng special. Outstanding restaurant reservation. Room was terrific and could not have been any better! The grounds were immaculate and their assistance was especially nice as we did not know the area!

One night on our way back to LA. Wish we could have stayed longer as the room was great, spacious with all that we needed and more! Didn't have time to use the sauna or take full advantage of the outside seating...what a view too! The breakfast was better than expected with selection of cakes, bagels, cereals, sausages, eggs and make your own waffles!
A really attractive arrangement of balconies, seating, water features, gardens and fantastic views of the sea...beautiful!

Thank you for taking the time in reviewing our hotel and posting a picture of the Mermaid garden.

We came here late one night after the place we checked in next door was uninhabitable. I wasn't really familiar with the Best western brand and expected just a clean, comfortable room, IF there were even any available. Luckily there was, and the manager on duty was extremely nice and let us look at the room first. I think he felt sorry for us knowing somewhat about the place next door and took $40 off the list rate. The room was spectacular! Very modern, very clean with Memory Foam matresses. I was VERY impressed. It was probably the nicest room we stayed in on our 9 day trip down the coast. It also included breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent place, spacious, clean, BIG flat screen TV; a room with all the amenities (microwave, fridge, iron), very comfortable beds, and excellent breakfast (included). We just finished two weeks driving through California, staying at a different place every night, and this was the best place by far for the money. Plus - great ocean view, beach access, and a hot tub - what's not to like!

We were planning our first family vacation. We wanted to stay on the beach and in a nice area but still affordable. This hotel for all our needs. They provided a pack and play got our infant son. The view from our room was worth it all. I enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck while watching the beach and people. The dining area for breakfast Is pretty small but with such great weather and views, who wants to eat inside? Being such a small hotel, it was quite. One downfall was no pool, but they have a hot tub with beach views. Would stay again if ever back in the area.

Our impeccably clean room on the second floor with its high ceilings felt roomier than anticipated. The owners and staff provided excellent service, and the continental (expanded) breakfast was a nice surprise.
Very refreshing to find a place were great care is given.
