Great hotel, clean, friendly staff. It is right across the street from the beach! Beds are comfortable. Free WiFi, free parking. Nice garden areas, ocean viewing. Fit our needs perfectly. Close to harbor, San Juan and more.

We were going to Catalina Island for the weekend and chose this location for the night before the Catalina Express. Steve, the Manager on duty, was Super friendly! The room was very clean and the location was in walking distance of some restaurants and bars that Steve gave us a complimentary drink for. When Steve heard we were leaving early and would not be at the free breakfast, he asked us what we could like as far as bagels, fruit, etc and brought us up a plate that night along with our bill since we were leaving before the office opened. It was 1 mile from the Boat landing for the Catalina Express and it was honestly the perfect start to a perfect vacation!. Thanks again.

Room Tip: You can see the ocean from this hotel and it is 1 mile from the boat landing to Catalina from Dana P...

A great view of the ocean from the balcony. PCH and railroad tracks are between the hotel and the ocean but it's close and quiet enough at night to hear the waves . The courtyard area is very tranquil filled with fountains, flowers, and seating. The rooms are large, the free breakfast has a good variety, free parking below the hotel, and a very friendly, accommodating office staff. I needed to extend my stay and Ferdinand made it possible for me to keep the same room. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

This place is a gem, I imagine it isn't $500 a night is because of the road between you and the ocean, but the views are still fabulous. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the room had a balcony facing the water. The owner was extremely friendly and was always welcoming. Not bad for $170 a night off of the ocean!

In February, while travelling southern CA, we booked into this hotel. The staff were fantastic, always cheerful and willing to help with anything. Everything was clean and well kept. The bed was super comfortable. The location is great as it is just across the street to the beach and they have a nice cycle trail that guides you all over the beach area. We spent a wonderful two days here and hope to return.

This was a perfect experience. The entire property is immaculate. You notice this the moment you drive into the parking garage and ride up the elevator to the lobby. Everything is sparkling clean. Our room was lovely, the furnishings and decor are modern, and the beds are super comfortable. I slept like a baby both nights! Service is top-notch. From the minute we arrived, Fernando was so welcoming and hospitable. When we had breakfast the first morning, he was kind enough to show us where everything was located in the breakfast room and even offered to show us how to use the waffle maker. Breakfast was yummy...we enjoyed sausage, scrambled eggs, toast and bagels, muffins, danish, fruit juices, and hot coffee. The landscaping of the property is beautiful...there are several fountains, lush greenery, and beautiful flowers throughout. The hotel is right across from Doheny Beach. We took a relaxing walk along the beach before sunset one evening and we delighted by all the lovely rocks and pebbles peppering the shore. We had a wonderful stay and left feeling relaxed and so appreciative of this gem of a hotel!

Room Tip: Our room was located in the back, on the second floor, away from the highway. We asked for a quiet...

The owners were very attentive and did all they could to assure our stay was very enjoyable. They were very informative about the area with restaurant recommendations and responded to any issue we had to correct or explain the situation. We had an ocean view with a fireplace in our room. The room was very clean, comfortable and roomy. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Dana Point area.
