Dana Point Marina Inn
Ranked #8 of 12 Hotels in Dana Point
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed our stay at this motel. It was clean and had a nice view of the harbor. Staff was friendly too. Dana point is a beautiful area and we recommend driving up the coast through laguna beach while there

Know this before going in....it's an older hotel. But are you going to travel to Dana Point and hang out in your room all day?
Negatives: it's older...dated...noisy a/c...continental breakfast is nothing to get excited over.
Positives: it's reasonable...free breakfast...free parking...helpful people that work there...and a perfect location. Request a harbor view room - 3rd floor. There's a small balcony with plastic chairs - you can sit out there and look at the harbor. It's right next door to shopping, restaurants. Dana Point tide pools are wonderul. Get a tide chart and find out when low tide is before hand and plan your trip accordingly.

Room Tip: 3rd floor is quieter and better view. Also request harbor view.

My sister wanted to vacation near our family in Dana Point so she booked 3 rooms for herself and adult kids and grandkids 6 months ago. She asked that at least 2 of the rooms be close together (grandkids are young) and that 1 be next to the pool so when the little ones needed to nap, they could still enjoy the pool. She called again in July and also a week before they arrived restating her requests. Bottom line, she did not get either request and the staff she spoke with had a take it or leave it attitude. Not even an apology was offered, much less any effort to accommodate her.

The location can't be beat if you're looking to be at the harbor. That said, I couldn't help but wonder why they couldn't invest about twenty dollars to put new vinyl on the bathroom floor. It was very old and torn up, and although the place needs a lot, something like that is cheap, fast and easy to do.

The staff was awesome, answered all our questions and took care of our needs.
Continental breakfast was very good, wish it would last until 9:30 instead of 9am.
The pool was clean and warm, the jacuzzi was on the hotter side for me, but kids enjoyed it.
We had great views of the pool and harbor.
I left my cell charger in the hotel room and didn't call until a week later and they still had it.
It wasn't fancy, but the price was good for what we received.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting a pool/harbor side vs. mtn side room. Mountain side rooms face the parkin...

We stayed two nights and wanted to make popcorn...when we asked for a pan with a lid housekeeping brought us her personal pan from home. We couldn't ask for better customer service than that! Rosario you rock!!

Rooms are ok, pool is nice and spa was great.

Room Tip: Make you reservation on the phone with the hotel directly if you have special needs.

you get what you pay for. Inexpensive. Pool. Free breakfast. My room was in desperate need of a make-over. It had been painted and repainted (with paint that didn't match) way too many times and there was a smell that you couldn't quite put your finger on. The bathroom was probably original, scratches, chips, rust, crud, nothing that could be wiped down and made to look good. I wouldn't walk barefoot in the room. However, if that kind of stuff doesn't bother you....the location and price can't be beat.

Room Tip: Supposedly there are some renovated rooms, you should probably ask for one of those.
