The Desk clerks are pleasant and helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. Location is safe and a nice walking distance to the harbor. Breakfast was a hot and fresh start to a beautiful day! The only drawback is that there aren't any restaurants nearby. We were happy to walk 1.5 miles to the harbor but not everyone can do that

Thank you for a great feedback!!!! Great to know that you enjoyed our complimentary breakfast and our beautiful hotel!

We do have a shuttle that can drive you from/to the Dana Point Harbor. I apologize if this was not shared to you at check in. I trust that you enjoyed Dana Point harbor and its restaurant selections. The harbor is beautiful!

Have a wonderful summer! So looking forward to host you again when you visit the historic San Juan Capistrano and the scenic Dana Point area!

Deeply appreciate your wonderful comments!

Cheers!

This is a common design Residence Inn that is well maintained.
We had the large king room, which we prefer since the walled units chops it up and makes the room look smaller.
The breakfast and the Manager Reception was very nice.
The bent over backwards to make the food for my limited diet.
We will go back again.
This is a "Gotta Go" kinda place.

Rube

Room Tip: It looks hard to get into and out of, but it is not. Just ask for a view of Costco/ocean and the noise level is very managable. There is a commuter train, but it did not bother us.

This is a newer property that has some beautifully decorated public areas and clean, attractive, efficiently laid out rooms. Each room has a full size refrigerator, a cooktop, microwave and dishwasher in a kitchen area, a large desk, and other amenities. The disadvantages: it's located at the intersection of two very busy streets and it's close enough to the train tracks so that traffic and train noise can be heard in the rooms. We were at the west end of the hotel, farthest from the traffic, and we still found it irritating. We had a reservation stating a 3 p.m. arrival, and at 5 our room wasn't ready and we had a half hour wait. Desk staff was not very attentive. On the other hand the complementary "enhanced" continental breakfast was above average. The hotel is a quick 2 1/2 miles to the mission and the beach, and there's free shuttle service available. Parking is j$12 a day and the lot can fill up fast.

My family and I went away for a little staycation. We've never been to this Residence Inn before but it was close to Dana Point/Laguna Beach/San Juan Capistrano so it was super convenient.

The hotel was well kept, the room spacious. Full size fridge, stove top, microwave and dishwasher were in the room so we were able to have meals in the room if we wanted. Free breakfast was awesome. Not much selection but just enough to start our day!

If having a view is important, you might not like that it basically is the Costco, a trailer park, freeway, and car dealership. That said, that wasn't a big deal to me. You go out to the pool area, mini putting green, and basketball court and it was still like you were in another place. The kids had a blast!

Great service, everyone was friendly and accommodating. We'll come back!

First thing I noticed on the LONG walk to our room (poorly designed layout -one elevator bank to service such a spread out floorplan)was how dirty the carpet was in the hallway. Two requests over 4 days to vacuum it went unheeded. View of Costco parking lot, trailer park and train tracks. The LOUD whistle of trains all night and morning interrupted sleep. There was an underlying scent of mildew in the room. Tipped the housekeeper with a request for more hangers (only 4 in the closet) and a request to replace wine glasses were ignored...but the money was gone. The complimentary breakfast was not great. Messy kitchen, tables not wiped off, garbage overflowing. Yuck. The place is busy...don't know why...competitors take note...there is an opportunity here...

Room Tip: Not sure there is a quiet room in the place. Train on one side, freeway on the other.
