Reviewed April 15, 2013

Steven was very helpful. Offered some good tips on the local restaurants. Was able to get us a balcony room at the last minute at a good price. We look forward to going back there. Wonderful secluded courtyard.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms on one of the higher levels would have been preferred if they were available.

I can usually find something wrong with a motel/hotel. Happy to report NOTHING wrong here. I can't even believe I'm saying this. Room was great (we did have an ocean view w/patio). It was super.
A/C worked and was quiet. Internet/Wi-Fi was excellent. Mini fridge had a freezer. Bed very comfortable. Patio facing ocean is super and if you are lucky you may see a great sunset. Hot breakfast. Good location with many restaurants and attractions nearby. As I said in the beginning I can't believe I am saying this but... 5 Stars on all counts. We will be back for sure.
OK, I must find something wrong....It's not $50/nite ;) but worth every dollar over that...

Room Tip: Try for ocean view room. They are Great!

This was a great hotel to stay in for our spring break vacation. Conveniently located across the street from the beach and close to I-5, this hotel has good access to almost all that there is to do in Southern California. The street in front of the hotel is a little busier than we had hoped (not the hotels fault), but the sidewalks are wide enough that it was not a real concern. The full breakfast was very good and had a wide variety of food options for the whole family.

What sets this hotel apart from the rest is the super nice, friendly staff / owners! We left there knowing the owners would do anything for us to make our stay a great one. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the Dana Point / Capistrano area.

This was the best of five hotels we stayed in while visiting California. It was impeccably clean and comfortable. The free parking under the bldg was fantastic and the free breakfast was delicious and offered everything from make-your-own-waffles to cereal, eggs and sausage, muffins and bagels, juice, coffee and tea and fresh fruit! Great way to start our days! The hotel manager could NOT have been nicer and was incredibly kind and accomodating. Little tip - if you are too tired to go out and eat, there is a great Italian restaurant in walking distance! Eat there or pick it up and eat in bed!

Room Tip: Ask for second floor for the best view.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. We are grateful when a seasoned traveler and highly ranked reviewer leaves candid comments about their stay. Agostino's Italian restaurant is only a few steps away and is a local favorite, thank you for feeling at home enough to dine in your room. Whether enjoying the afternoon sun, having dinner, or just a night cap, our ocean view balcony rooms are enjoyable for their spanning Pacific Ocean views and relaxing sounds of waves crashing ashore.

We stayed just the one night (March 23) at your Dana Point Inn by the sea and were greeted by a very pleasant young woman at the desk by the name of––I think––Aspen. She was particularly helpful in securing a suitable room for us and offering advice on restaurants and local activities in the area which we investigated during the later part of the day. A very enjoyable stay and a charming and personable employee to deal with.

Thank you for choosing our hotel during your trip from Canada. Aspyn is a great front desk agent and we are proud to have her on our team.

A very nice place with friendly people (staff). Beautiful and peaceful landscape (garden, flowers and fountains). Big and clean room. Nice breakfast. A place where we spent good moments and recommend to others.

Thank you for the kind comments and taking note of our garden areas. Our basic room is called a Garden View room so we do pride ourselves in having beautiful flowers and well groomed plants around our neptune and mermaid fountains.
