During a recent visit to the LA area I met up with a girlfriend and we stayed 2 nights at the Blue Lantern Inn. We had a very comfortable room with a partial ocean view, 2 queen beds and a fireplace. Our little balcony on the third floor was nice for a view of the harbor. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was a welcome treat. Great video library available - we got take out and did a chick flick movie night. Staff was helpful with instructions and special breakfast for my gluten free friend. Can order a pot of coffee to be delivered to your room in the morning - so nice!
Went by bus to Laguna Beach on a rainy day for some shopping. Duet in Laguna Beach was a great clothing shopping find. Loads of store for browsing.
Had lunch at the Harbor below the inn and walked the beach.
Nice Inn. Even though the Inn was full and there were lots of guests in the morning at the breakfast - most other times we did not see many people.

Room Tip: Select rooms with partial ocean view.

We borrowed the bicycles and had a great time. The inn is very comfortable. Complimentary sodas, breakfast, and evening meet & greet really makes staying here fun. The staff are terrific and very helpful.

We were warmly welcomed by the staff and arrived just in time for wine, cheese and fresh veggies and dip. A great beginning. Loved our room that had a tiny view of the bay. A nice fireplace and two wingback chairs gave the room a comfy feel to it. Slept well and were able to leave a window open for a nice ocean breeze. The Inn sits on a bluff at the end of a street so there was only foot traffic. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. All areas of this Inn are warm and inviting. It was our first visit but we will surely come again. Parking is right next door and there is no charge. Also two nice restaurants are steps away.
My only complaint is that the bathroom had many areas that should be repainted and wouldn't take a lot of time or effort to do. (Room 307) For the amount of money we paid we wanted the room to be in top shape.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the parking lot or the back would probably not have a very good view but I didn't see these rooms

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast set high on a bluff overlooking Dana Point Harbor. The height and views mean no easy beach access, but beach access is very close by. The views are tremendous, and I love the atmosphere of the inn. Many bed & breakfasts are a little on the fussy side, which puts off my husband, but we found our room at the Blue Lantern to be understated, well-appointed and elegant. The linens in particular are top notch, and they do have the usuals like fluffy white robes as well as in-room Keurig coffee makers. The staff is great, and we really enjoyed afternoon appetizers and wine with that marvelous ocean view. Breakfast was actually very good, with a mushroom and egg dish and lots of bacon, but the home-baked goodies such as stuffed french toast and gooey pastries usual at b&b's were conspicuously absent. This was actually a blessing for us, because it is hard to resist what should be resisted...Try for a room with a balcony (whether ocean or harbor view, better to spend the extra $ on the balcony rather than the view, in my mind). We like to drive to the harbor for lunch at Dana Point Harbor Coffee Importers -- the food is unbelievable, and you can bring it back for an al fresco lunch on your own balcony...Try to make time to ride the beach bikes, and if you like walking, the hike of the headlands down to the Strands beach is just about 2 minutes away, and it is breathtaking. All in all, can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Room 306 is great, it has a harbor view and a balcony, best of both worlds.

We arrived at the hotel late after our wedding ended. The man at the front desk was so kind and hospitable. Our room was excellent - especially the bathroom and the tub. Breakfast was nice and the views are breathtaking. Parking is easy and convenient.
