Best Western Dana Point, CA

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: Nice location with great staff.
Cons: The room temp was difficult to adjust. Mostly to warm or too cool and took a long time after moving a setting to change the climate in the room.
Location: Right across the street from the beach and close to shop and restaurants.
The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are very customer focused and so plesant to do business with. The staff at this hotel were so helpful and wonderful hosts. The hotel was nice and clean. This was a good stay and I would go back if in the area.

Very good hotel close to the beach

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: Spacious rooms, TV, Fridge, Coffee maker, safe, helpful staff, free breakfast. What else can you expect?
Cons: Probably windows need double glazing in order to reduce the noise from the Pacific Highway.
Location: The hotel is very close to Dana Point with its famous harbour - good starting point for boat trips to Catalina Island or Mexico. Close to San Clemente
Very helpful staff, clean rooms, free American breakfast - a rarity in the US. A bit noisy as the hotel is right on Pacific Highway. On the plus side it's just meters from the beach. There are 3 restaurants not far from it.

Close to beach

Nice older hotel. I wouldn't waste time with the beach view as they are closer to the highway and more noise.Just go outdide on the hotel decks and relax and watch the sunset. Very comfortable beds and a relaxing atmosphere. Great value in Dana point.

Nice place to stay across from beach.

Posted Mar 7, 2014
Pros: Same as my experience there.
Location: Dana Point Harbor very close by with a lot of restaurants. Ocean Institute at end of harbor.
Very friendly, helpful staff. Very clean. Beautiful gardens and fountains! Staff was making some improvements so some periodic noise, only temporary. Would most definitely return there.

Nice hotel across the street from the beach.

Posted Mar 3, 2014
Pros: Location, friendliness of owners, great beds, nice breakfast, did I mention location??!! Ocean and beach is across the street! Free parking too!
Cons: While this hotel is definitely older, it appears to be maintained very well.
Location: Only a five min drive to Dana Pt Harbor area - whale/dolphin watching, shopping. There are several restaurants within easy walking distance of hotel.
This was a great experience - hotel staff was very helpful, beds were wonderful and the location was terrific (with the exception of the trains going by occasionally!) The trains were in no way a problem - didn't wake us. The free breakfast was very much appreciated, especially on our first rainy morning. The selection was very well thought out for such a small area - they had a little something for everyone. Their lovely little courtyard on a sunny morning would have made it perfect!! All in all, this was a great find and would be perfect for families or couples.

Conveniently located near the beach

Posted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: Proximity to the beach as well as it's helpful staff and relaxing, calming mood of the garden and views from the 2nd floor balcony.
Location: Driving distance to shopping, restaurants, and boat dock. Make reservations for the Catalina Ferry or you might not be able to catch it!
Overall great experience-from the calming music in the garden to the nice view of the ocean from the 2nd floor. The hotel staff was nice and helpful and the continental breakfast was decent as well.
