This hotel has a great location and full hot breakfast. This property is pet friendly and easy access off I-5. I love that it has a full kitchen with an Albertsons down the street. The Pacific Ocean is only a few minute drive away. The staff is friendly and the king bed very comfortable. The kids loved the pool, nightly... More

When I first got off of the exit for this hotel, I was a little hesitant, old part of town and didn't look like much in the area. Wasn't sure I was gonna stay there? Checked into hotel, front desk and lobby was very nice, employees very friendly! My room could not have been nicer or cleaner! Full kitchen, comfy... More

This was a great hotel close to many areas of Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano. We were in town for 5 nights for a family reunion, and this hotel was easy to get in and out of for both DP and SJC. The only negative we experienced was getting in late to find the main parking lot full so... More

My associates and I recently attended a business luncheon meeting here and had an opportunity to tour the property. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and have an ocean view. The outdoor amenities which include a fire pit, pool/spa, and sport court make for an excellent experience for the entire family.

I stay in Residence Inns often, and this one was fine. The rooms were very clean and the bedrooms were spacious. The living room/kitchen was fine, but not quite as "homey" as most of the "R I" hotels I have stayed in. This would be an excellent hotel for someone in the area on business. The location is very convenient... More

I was traveling with approximately 30 other coworkers for a week long training. It was the perfect location for everyone to socialize and relax after a long day. The evening receptions, food truck, basketball court, and firepit made our trip so much more fun than a normal hotel. Walking distance to the Dana Point Marina and all of the fabulous... More

Hotel maintenance and front desk responsiveness issues. Plus, besides the $380 for two nights and a $100 deposit, they also charged $110 erroneously. Very average for a Residence Inn. Front desk is run by young people (every time we were there in 3 days) who are generally inept and inefficient. Not a good stay.
