We're locals from San Clemente and stayed here for two nights midweek while our house was being fumigated for termites. We have a 3 year old son, so paid the extra money for a Marina view room, which kept him partially occupied out on the balcony looking at all the boats. The hotel is in a great location with many...

Stayed here for 4 days and it was a nice experience. The room was clean, the service was good and it was at oceanfront. There was no outside noise, and we all enjoyed our stay. However there was a couple of drawbacks. Parking was a bit of a problem because there wasn't a lot of it near the main entrance.... More

I had a wedding at the Marriott which was sold out. Walk was less than 2 blocks and this hotel is right on the Marina. Room was very clean and very quiet and 1/3rd of the price. Staff check in was efficient and quick. Very impressed overall and this is one of the best bargains around. Will definitely stay here... More

The hotel has nice ambiance and a good location for exploring the surrounding area. It leaves signs in the room to conserve water because it is "...our most precious, limited resource." Guests are encouraged to shut off the faucet when brushing their teeth. This rings hollow, however, when one uses the showers. It is only possible to control the temperature... More

Hotel was clean. Check in staff was so friendly and welcoming. Gave us great advice on local restaurants. The walls of this hotel are a little thin so you can hear your neighbors sneeze but that's really the only drawback. The location is fabulous as you can walk around the marina and there are great restaurants and coffee shops close... More

We have been staying here for the past 6 Super Bowl weekends. The people are frendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean, a little dated with older TVs, the room rate for a beach area and location is walking distance to most everything is very resonable around a hundred bucks. It includes a continental breakfast in a clean dinning... More

I stayed at the Dana Point Marina Inn nine nights while on business. The hotel is old and worn but my room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It is located adjacent to the marina and you will find several very good restaurants a few minutes walk from the hotel. The room rate includes free parking, Internet and breakfast.... More

Picked this because I stayed there few years ago and was satisfied. Well this trip I stayed 5 nights and except for weak wifi signal in rooms, was told by front desk, due to location of hotel between water and a hill not much to complain about. For the price and location can't be beat. Room was very clean, staff... More

How often do you find a marina/ ocean oriented hotel in California for under $100/n? You don't. Yeah the DP Marina Inn is a little tired, but it terrific for an overnight associated with a coastal or Catalina cruise. Have used it for years. Keeper
