Rooms are a little shabby

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: The beautiful grounds and the very nice staff
Cons: Better room maintenance
Location: Close to Sea World and Ocean Beach
This stay started out badly when we were registering at the front desk while several seriously intoxicated men were in the lobby. My husband had to ask the men to be respectful and the staff apologized for the incident though it was not their fault. This is our second time to stay at this hotel and once again the grounds look beautiful and the staff is great but this time the room really needed some tlc. The shower was either was either cold or scalding hot, the TV had no signal, and the furniture was really beat up. When we told the front desk they were awesome and moved us to a much nicer room with a balcony over looking the bay. The second room was quite nice and in much better condition. The location of this hotel is perfect for us when we visit our son and we may stay here again but it would be difficult to recommend it to someone else as we wouldn't be sure of the accommodations.

Very nice hotel with excellent staff

Posted Dec 15, 2014
Pros: The facilities are generally well maintained. The food and staff at both restaurants were excellent.
Cons: The only concern was the additional $14 per day charged by the hotel which was not expected.
Location: It is very close to Sea World. The Old Trolley tour picks you up right at the hotel and gives an excellent tour of the city. Lots of places to walk.
The staff were excellent. They were kind, friendly and very helpful with recommending things to do. Example: they printed off the bus schedule and explained when and where to use the public transit system.

The resort is clean and the staff is very friendly

Posted Dec 15, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, staff, views, location, pools
Cons: no parking fees, no daily fee
Location: The trolley, Sea World, running & bike paths, the beach, playground, Mission Bay, restaurants
Our stay at the Dana on Mission Bay was great. We loved our view and both pools. Our son swam everyday that we were there. We knew about the extra fees ahead of time, so we weren't surprised by that. The hotel is close to everything in San Diego. The rooms are spacious with amenities such as microwaves. The food at the restaurant was very good. The gym is nice and I had a problem with my key card and they sent someone right over. The grounds are spotless and the views are perfect! We would stay here again without a doubt!

Great location for Seaworld guest.

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Our room did not matched up with the hotel lobby ans every facade of the hotel. The room is clean but small. The bed is not very comfy and the air con is extremely noisy. we switched off the air-con through out our 3 days stay. the staff in the front desk are very helpful. best part, it is just 5min drive to the Seaworld.

Pros: Handy to airport. Had shuttle service to airport. It was quiet.
It was just fine. I did not use maid service. The restaurant was nice. I upgraded to a room with a view. The view was nothing to write home about. Very ordinary. Staff was very cordial and helpful.

Comfortable and quiet with bay view

Posted Dec 10, 2014
Older large resort with nice updates. Large quiet rooms, good firm bed, decent onsite restaurant. Only small gym. Near Sea World and Mission Bay but not within walking distance to other attractions, stores or restaurants.

Nice hotel on the bay.

Posted Dec 9, 2014
Nice view. Older section of hotel had been nicely upgraded. Enjoyed pool, fire circle, waterfront walking/running path, Blue Pearl breakfast. $20 a day parking fee absurd.
