Property's Favorite Review
I LOVED the hotel and my room AND my view. It is small; personal and charming but the room was large and well -equipped. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Breakfast and the afternoon wine and cheese (and wonderful cookies) were also highlights. The hotel is on a hill overlooking the yacht basin and Pacific Ocean and the view is wonderful.

My husband and I stayed here for our mini honeymoon in July 2020. The location is beautiful and perfect for walking around the lantern district and the marina. The room was absolutely gorgeous and we loved the snacks and wine that were provided. We used the bicycles that were offered to guests and parking was easy and convenient. The patio overlooking the ocean and marina was fabulous! Even though the regular breakfast buffet was not in operation due to covid restrictions, the chef made breakfast which was delivered to our room. We are looking forward to visiting again! This was one of our favorite trips out of many to southern California.

This is where we stay every time we come to visit Dana Point. The rooms have wonderful views, are beautiful and the service is excellent. Breakfast is delicious always with a great variety of fruits, eggs and breads. Also love the afternoon wine and snacks. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and down to the wharf and they also have free bicycles you can take out for a quick ride on the lovely and quiet streets. We don't like to stay anywhere else while we're visiting our family in Dana Point and we will definitely be back.

Feels like a B&B with good service (champagne brought to the room within minutes of ordering), nice happy hour hour & full breakfast included, with stunning views from the balcony! of our corner room (which could use some updating but was clean & well-equipped).

The Inn is spectacular. We were a little dissappointed that our room wasn't ready on time but sometimes things happen. The room was one of the nicest rooms that I have ever stayed in. This property is a tad expensive and I was glad the room was extraordinary.

This hotel has great views of the harbor with cozy, yet spacious rooms. The staff were very friendly and continually offered assistance. The breakfast and happy hours were also a nice touch. There are also some delicious restaurants in the area that are walkable.

My husband and I stayed here in early March, and we were so thrilled. We travel often and this was by far one of the best places we have every stayed. The staff is wonderful, rooms are great, views are awesome, and the afternoon wine and cheese is an extra added touch. If you are in Dana Point, look no further and stay here.

We vistited the in the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve. The Inn was busy but not too full and the service, accommodations and food we all excellent. The location at the top of the hill overlook Dana Point Harbor is stunning even with a rain storm that blew in the first morning we were there. The weather made for an enjoyable fireplace and balcony experience. We will definitely return.

From the moment you enter the hotel a feeling of tranquility engulfs you. Turning from the lobby checkin your eyes take in the fire in the fireplace with the Queen Anne sitting chairs. Turning to take the elevator your gaze lingers on the magnificent view of the Dana Point harbor and marina with the Pacific Ocean to the horizon. The facility is clean and spacious as are the rooms. The decor fives a feeling of being comfort, and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud. Cradling your body in comfort. The staff from the lobby to the housekeeping are exceptional. I will stay if I were to have reason to come to the Dana Point area in the future. I highly recommend this Inn.
