Love this hotel - great staff and the location is outstanding. Miss the bikes they'd have for use and the nearby bike rental place, a long walk or a hassle parking is in some transition and they have junky big toy type stuff or rent and during holidays were not open. Bring back

Lovely staff - got in in the evening, jumped into the perfect temp jacuzzi and enjoyed the buzz of the restaurants nearby. Lovely little shops to meander around the next morning. We had one of the new rooms - just perfect!

Basically you park wherever there is a spot upon arrival, then upon check in they will give you a placard to hang from your review mirror throughout your stay. If you haven't already i'd suggest making a reservation before arrival as hotels in that area do sellout fairly quickly.

Are you pet friendly. I have a small 8 lb dog.
No...unless they've again changed the rules...call them direct...their web site does not give the best rates...you have to ask for specific discounts as well as specifying the room placement you want

When is free breakfast served?
Every morning but it's a basic breakfast, cereals, toasts, bagels, yogurt, orange juice, coffee, all of this at will.

Is this hotel due for renovations and/or add on of additional rooms within the next 8 months?
Lela R. To answer your question...we are always doing something to improve the hotel. I have projects slated and in the works every year. New bathrooms - 10 to 20 per year, new mattresses (20+ per year) Kitchenette remodels, new carpets 20+ rooms per year and many other projects. This is usual business for ongoing upkeep and upgrading. Yes, some rooms are "nicer" than others and I assure you, all are on the list to have something done in time. The harbor view rooms and the pool side rooms are the best in my opinion, while the standard rooms (non-harbor, pool views) are the best value. Our hotel is an older, limited service hotel with a great location and even better value for the area. We are not a Marriott or Hyatt and do not market the hotel as such. But, we do have a passion for making your stay as enjoyable as possible. Hope that answers your question. Tony Kaspar General Manager Dana Point Marina Inn
