Warmly greeted and felt welcomed to this very convenient property just south of Dana Point across from the ocean. Frenando was very friendly and excellent host at this property. There is Free underground property the a seating area on the second level to relax and view the ocean. A gem of hotel tucked off the California 1 Hwy.

Stayed at this little gem for a wedding and was happy with the front desk employees, cleansliness and location. This hotel is on PCH but we couldn't hear anything from our hotel room. This hotel is also pet friendly so be sure you're fine with dogs. There's a short walk across the street & down the street to a nice... More

Room looked nice enough, staff was pleasant. There were ants all over the bathroom and the AC barely worked. Wifi was useless and there wasn't enough parking since they allowed people to park across two spots. Not awful, but would recommend it

The staff is very kind and accommodating, even checking in at a late hour. Their location is great, and easily accessible to the ocean. If you can't make it to the beach, I recommend getting an ocean view room- it's worth the extra money if you can't get outside. The room sizes and amenities (sink and mini fridge) in it... More

Great place to stay if you want to be near the ocean. The best service is provided, with a smile from the manager, and his wife. Have stayed here now 3 times, has alway been a great experience. Nice rooms, especially the ones with a balcony, and a hot tub. Tall ceilings. Very comfortable beds, and the rooms are clean.... More

Stayed three nights in a two bed room. Clean and quiet. Had all the amenities that a hotel room should. TV, coffee maker, fridge, microwave, blow dryer, iron, ironing board, vanity mirror, hot water, safe, covered parking, and hot breakfast. Can't beat the location or the price! Literally across the street from the beach and ocean. A minute walk from... More

Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Very nice modern accommodations. Was also please that despite the fact that our room faced the train tracks (as well as the ocean - the train runs along the ocean) that the room was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed this hotel for its friendly staff& great locale. The breakfast was varied with an automatic pancake maker!! A short walk to the beach. Room was huge with a separate sitting room. We had an ocean view & several restaurants close by.

This little inn is a jewel. Not only is it across from the PCH fro my he sea, but it is well located,to Laguna beach and Mission Capistrano. The manager Ferdinand is busy taking super good care of guests as well as the grounds. He is such a kind, considerate manager which is highly unusual in most hotels I've been... More
