“Great location, reasonable cost”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Spent a week here in Jan 2010, and we lucked out in that weather was in 70's or better the whole week. We had a very nice room overlooking the bay with a balcony, and took great joy in seeing sunrises & sunsets there each day. Room was a good size & well furnished, and everything met or exceeded expectations. Sadly we did not try any of the restaurants as there was just too much exploring to do outdoors what with the great weather.

Room Tip: Be sure to get an upper floor if you can & overlooking the water.

Our 1st trip to San Diego, and we are glad we chose The Dana, its a great hotel for families, staff were very helpful and friendly. Morgan at the front desk was very kind and helped us out with all our queries. Also the staff at Blue Pearl were excellent and the food was great. Its not far from the main attraction, the Zoo and Seaworld. Also we did the USS Midway tour which is highly recommended. Our stay was for 4 nights and it was in the new year period 2013.

This is my second trip to The Dana. I was in the older section this time and the room was perfect for my needs. I like the updated sink area. Service for my one room problem (how to start the heat) was very responsive. Wifi was no problem. Breakfast at The Blue Pearl was delicious but high priced. The shuttle to the airport was on time and convenient. Every single employee was professional and helpful. This is very nice when travelling alone. I love the Gift Shop off the Lobby. Packed into a small area is an uncluttered shopping experience. You can jump in for a quick purchase or browse. There are many pretty, practical and unusual items for sale, that are reasonably priced.

I was here on a business trip and had a wonderful stay here. The staff was great and professional,Mike T the shuttle driver gave me his business card in case i needed help with anything which i apreciate, They made me feel right at home and relaxed i did not feel like i was on a business trip.

My room was near the Marina
And the view was great. The room was very clean and i love the keurig coffee maker they have in the room it really added personality to the room.
I would recommend this hotel to my family, friends and coworkers. The food was awesome at both restaurants firefly and blue pearl.

Coming from two feet of snow in our backyard, it was so great to open the blinds and look out on the blue water of Mission Bay. Boat and rowers going by, playing frisbee on the grass and basking in San Diego's warm sun. Our bayside deluxe room for parents and two kids was a great size, kitchenette was put to good use, spacious bathroom. Pool area was great, didn't have all the hotel windows peering down on you. Staff very prompt and very helpful. Would love to stay here again.

I think the poorer reviews are mostly coming from frustrations about the older section of the hotel, which did look like kind of an apartment complex. There are only two restaurants which you'll be ordering from. Otherwise you'll have to drive to get to anything else.

We stayed Fri and Sat night, the stay was short the weather was not what we had planned for. The room was clean, and we enjoyed having the pool to ourselves. We found the location to be convenient with proximety to mission beach, Sea World, and other various San Diego locations. We enjoyed the free shuttle to Sea World which was on time. I was concerned with transporting our large double stroller for our one year old twins when Don took the stroller and loaded it for us in the rear of the shuttle. I apreciated the help which Don provided and his carefull attention he provided for our belongings. We would stay again.. I do wish the internet worked better and maybe a softer chair.
Also the front desk staff was helpfull and efficiant at check in.
