A great place to stay.

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Location, continental breakfast, large room, patio.
Cons: The bathroom is old and worn, and needs upgrading. There is one treadmill in the "gym" with a TV that is not hooked up to an attenna or cable/dish.
Wonderful location. Very happy with my experience.

Location is excellent

Posted Feb 21, 2015
Pros: The location and the people working there
Cons: update the bathroom fixtures.
Location: see first response
The hotel is getting old and in slight disrepair. But, nothing that drew away from the enjoyment of our stay. We could step right out of our room onto the docks and look out over the ocean. A short walk away was everything we came for: the shops, the great restaurants, and especially the beaches. The staff was excellent and tended to all our needs and then some. We were very happy with our stay!

chicken was good but overall room was bathroom di

Posted Feb 18, 2015
the biggest problem with the stay was the bed and bathroom both were horrible the bathroom around the drain thing that you stop and drain the bathtub with had something on it yellow liquid spots that staying in and I don't know what it was in there the bed popped up on top of us when we both sat down on the edge of it the whole bed flipped up and off so I do not recommend this hotel for anybody until they bring their hotel conditions in their rooms up to par

Never stay here!

The worst place ever and the worst staff ever. DO NOT STAY HERE spend the extra $5 and stay at the doubletree down the street.

Pros: nearness to marina, ocean, shopping, walking
Cons: outdated decor (except carpet) and small bath.
Early check in allowed on busy holiday weekend. That was much appreciated. Nice top floor room, quiet until Sheriff's Deputy's knocked on next door at 2AM.

perfect location but hotel needs updating

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: location, location, location
Cons: update rooms in every way
Location: fun restaurants, shops, lovely harbor and great place to walk and view the boats.
expedia's reservation DID NOT MAKE IT to the hotel, so the hotel told us it was full but found a suite for us. it was a very old suite with old furniture and a dank odor. the bed was fine. refrigerator fine. we love the location and have stayed at this hotel before but on the side which had been updated and was just fine. so would recommend if one stays in the "better" side.

All about the location-very pleasant

The hotel is a bit older but due to its location it makes it very worthwhile to go to. I have stayed here in the past and will most likely stay here in the future

One of our favorite getaway locations

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Pros: It is the perfect location. The Marina is right out side your door and you can walk to everything (harbor, beach, marina, parks, dining).

We have been coming to Dana Point Marina Inn of many years. We stay there at least once a year.

Location, location, location

Posted Dec 26, 2014
Pros: Excellent location for our planned activities.
Cons: It is an older hotel so the AC/heater was not the greatest.
Location: Ocean Institute cruise is always excellent. My grandkids loved the lights and want to return.
I spent the night here to take the grandkids to see the lights, then a mammal cruise. The location of the hotel is excellent. I would stay here again based on that.
