My stay at the Blue Lantern Inn was centered around attending a wedding in the area. I fell in love with this hotel as well as Dana Point! The staff was Supreme! All our needs were met with solutions and joy. My room!!! I had a room on the first floor. Fireplace, two sinks, a large jetted tub, separate shower,... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2016 via mobile

This is a beautiful B&B. You are looked after by lovely welcoming people from the moment you arrive. The bikes are great fun and a nice way to see Dana point after the buffet breakfast . And there are also delicious wine and nibbles in the afternoon. The ambience of the hotel is wonderful and the rooms don't disappoint. They... More

Victorian look on the outside with everything you would expect from an east coast BnB. Great views, awesome staff, love the tea and baked goods in the am. If you are looking for a place to unplug for a few days this is the place for you. The Penthouse suite is sweet with its vaulted ceilings, fire place, jacuzzi tub... More

I don't get these negative reviews. Do you see the views? We checked out of the Marriott & moved here & were so much happier. We travel extensively for business & stay in hotels & B & B's all the time. I grew up in Dana Point & used to run by the hotel - it has the best location.... More

We are experienced B&B/Inn travelers and this was our first visit to the Blue Lantern Inn and it will not be our last. The inn sits high on the cliffs above the Dana Point Marina so the views are blue water and sky everywhere including from the elevator to the 3rd floor. Our room had a "city view" which saves...

My wife and I decided to stay here over night for a wedding and as a late anniversary present to our selves. It was beautiful and immaculate from the lobby to the room. The people who worked there were hospitable and friendly. The view from the balcony just took my breath away. Especially during the day you can look over... More

On first arriving into The Lantern District of Dana Point, you get a feel like you are on Cape Cod! The Inn in so welcoming and warm; it is a magical experience just walking through the door. The feel is like you are staying as a guest in a beautiful home on the water. The rooms are so clean and... More

We love the Blue Lantern Inn and the Four Sisters group of inns. This was our second visit and we hope to make many more visits in the future. We came for the Laguna Beach art festival and after spending time with the crowds in Laguna we were very happy to come back to the peacefulness and charm of the... More

This hotel has lovely modern rooms with very comfortable beds in a quiet location. It is about 2 miles South of Laguna Beach so if you want to stay in that hubbub then this hotel is not for you, but if you don't mind the few minutes drive, the price is reasonable, the free breakfast is nice , the staff...

We had family stay at the Blue Lantern Inn when we "overflowed" our townhouse. It is very charming and close to a pier with restaurants, boating and surfing nearby. There are some walks and hikes along nearby coastal spots and for kids (and adults) it if fun to look for shells and sea life close up. In addition, Dana Point... More
