A waterfront resort enveloped by tropical landscaping, The Dana on Mission Bay delivers an exceptional lodging experience in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Rest comfortably in a well-appointed guestroom or two-room suite overlooking Mission Bay. Delight in such quality amenities as two outdoor, heated swimming pools, fitness center, private marina, and watersport and bicycle rentals on site. Our location is both family- and business-friendly. The Dana on Mission Bay is less than one mile to Mission Beach and Belmont Park. We're the closest hotel to SeaWorld San Diego and a short drive to the San Diego Zoo. And the San Diego Convention Center is equally convenient. In short, the only thing we overlook is the bay.

Our room was plain. Wasn't what was advertised with the pretty coverlet & matching pillows online. Just all white. Pillows were not down, they were bulky. The 4 1/2 star rating is misleading. Not worth what we paid. It was our 28th wedding anniversary.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay. We have been visiting this hotel for the past 25 years and continue to love it! Omar, at the main pool, remembers us by name and always greets us with a big smile. He always takes care of us and makes us feel welcome. He makes a great Pina Colada. Very attentive, great personality, and handles the whole area with ease, Thanks Omar!!!

Nice Grounds and beautiful harbor, pool, jacuzzi and surroundings. I definitely would recommend this hotel as a romantic getaway for couples. Staff was assistive and helpful. Dogs are welcome which is a plus for us. Close to all Seaworld and near dog beaches and parks.

This is the second time I have stayed at The Dana. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, clean, and secure grounds, The Dana is your destination. The rooms were clean and inviting. Check in was hassle free and fast. Also, I must add that The Dana is pet friendly and was surprised when they provided a dog dish and treats. The grounds are well manicured and clean. Unfortunately I did not step in their beautiful pool and enjoy a drink at the "Firefly" but better believe that will be something I will take advantage at my next stay. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast buffet and lunch I had. Our server Salvador was excellent and very attentive in making sure we had a wonderful, relaxing, and enjoyable time. Good job Salvador. Overall, I highly recommend this little gem in San Diego to anyone who is looking for a place to simply relax and take a breath from the world around us.

Old resort with small rooms that are very expensive. We had bugs in our room and had to switch rooms at 10pm. The air conditioner is very loud. Not a good place for a family with kids because the rooms are too small.
