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...

We stayed 2 nights at this property which is located right on the marina with many shops and restaurants nearby. The location is perfect and the price very good. The next highest priced hotel in the marina area was several hundred dollars a night higher. The room was clean and the king bed was comfortable. There is even a small... More

Stayed 5 nights and loved the location! It does need a little updating but for the price it was a bargain. The continental breakfast wasn't very good and after 1 day we were eating somewhere else. Wi Fi was iffy unless you went to the lobby. Everyone friendly and it was adequate but they could spruce up their breakfast.

Needed a place to stay the night, and on ORBITZ the price was incredible. So we booked on line and drove right to the inn. Booking on line was about 50% less than when we walked in cold call and inquired on room availability and rates. The facility is located convenient to the harbor, restaurants,and beach. Parking was free. The... More

Our son lives in Dana Point and we used to stay at a different hotel. From now on we will stay at the Dana Point Marina Inn. What a great location! We could walk everywhere and its fun to walk past all the boats that are docked in the harbor. The breakfast choices aren't as good as the place we... More

In the heart of quiet but well appointed (shopping, dining) Dana Point one finds Dana Point Marina Inn. I "could" stay literally across the street for a few more "stars" and in the process triple my cost, but here I'm ON the water, get a free continental breakfast, park a few strides from my room, have free WiFi...oodles of fluffy...

People were very friendly and the amentityes were bearly adaquate. I stayed on the second floor and it was 200 steps one way to the ice machine. There are no free weights or weight machines in their gym. There is a TV set but it only works with a remote which I could not locate.
