Having been a resident in Dana Point Harbor for over 13 years, when I revisit my prior home, I always stay at the Dana Point Marina Inn, mainly for its prime location right in the Harbor. It is ideal for excercising, shopping, dining, boat tours and there is no need to even get in your car for anything. Many, many... More

When we checked in, there were a couple of young males at the reception. Customer service was very mediocre, but that was OK. Then we took the elevator to our room. The room was very small with two beds. The carpet was visibly dirty and stained. The shower still had short hair in it. Not very clean by all standards.... More

We stayed here, and reviewed it September 2015. Since we had a good experience we decided to stay again when returning for the Toshiba Tall Ship Festival in 2016. Unfortunately we could not get the same room as we had before, but Kayla was very helpful in selecting a room for us. As last year, the room was quite large.... More

We spent two days at the Inn last week and had an enjoyable stay. We like to stay here because it is within walking distance to the wharf/marina with its shops and varied restaurants. Baby beach is close by as well as the Ocean Institute, and a nice area for walking and biking-they have bikes to rent. The pool is... More

The rooms are very small. The day we checked in the hotel was not booked, I asked if there was a bigger room available, he did but he charged me $30+ extra 1 night. My partner followed me with a second car and was asked to park by the bar....elsewhere, when there were spots open in the garage the whole... More

The DP Marina Inn is a nice , clean, inexpensive budget hotel with some rooms facing the harbor and boats. When friends come to this area, I ask them what is there budget and what kind of hotel type they need or want. This hotel is owned by Orange County on County Harbor property. So the rates are set differently... More

I love it, so close to family and the beach. Please don't tear it down, Dana point is going to change too much! We need to preserve some of the Old Beach Life! The Girls at the front desk were so helpful and friendly!!

After making a multiple night reservation at this hotel, we left the next day. This mainly was due to lack of responsiveness of the hotel staff, specifically Amir (self-proclaimed Supervisor). Upon check-in, the first room (yes first) was reeking of cigarette smoke. We went back to the front lobby and requested another room, which quickly provided. The next room was... More

When rating any accommodation,the rating should be based on value. I've stayed at the Dana Point Marina Inn many times while attending the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. Some hotels in Laguna are more luxurious - but much more than twice the price. Dana Point is only 20 minutes south of Laguna Beach - a short drive to... More

We stayed here for two nights over the weekend in order to attend a wedding near by. I read mixed reviews and to be honest was a bit concerned. This place could actually be awesome.....with a little extra effort. Seriously.....the owner/manager should realize that the place has a lot going for it and EXTEND some effort to be great. Pluses...
