Great service by Manager, Steve Wong. Super location right across the street from Capistrano Beach. There was a wedding party taking up most of the hotel, but they were well controlled by the staff, with no noise at all to disturb our sleep.

We stay at this hotel every year to visit our daughter and granddaughter. The staff is always friendly and we get the same room every time. The view is wonderful and we get to see the sunset every night. We will definitely stay here again next year!

A nice place close to the ocean which was the main draw for our stay. Pleasant staff. Adequate rooming accommodations. Not a new hotel but has been kept neat and clean. Breakfast room is small but seating was available during the time we were enjoying breakfast. Not a large choice for breakfast..

We had a really great stay at this Best Western. The staff were extremely kind and helpful, the complimentary breakfast was better than most I've had, and it's right across from the ocean. We were able to walk to dinner and enjoy the hot tub after. Will definitely be coming back if the opportunity arises!

Had a very pleasant stay at this Best Western property. Right across the highway from Doheny Beach and right next to a couple of restaurants. Only thing lacking was a good spot nearby for coffee. Breakfast tip: Stacks in downtown Dana Pt.

We usually stay at Holiday Inn Express as we are platinum members, but we had good luck with another Best Western Plus, so decided to give this a try. It's right across from the beach and train tracks, but the train noise was NOT an issue EVER! My husband is a train buff, so we enjoyed sitting out side on...

This is an older property but it is clean and comfortable. It would be nice if they added additional vending machines and ice machines. The lighting is dim and the internet isn't the best but the staff does a nice job and the view is beautiful. We would stay here again.
