Spent the heart of Memorial Day weekend at this lovely low key resort, you would never have known they had 3 weddings going on! Our room was immaculate, well laid out with beautiful views of the bay and ample outdoor seating. Why would you ever go buy coffee, they give you so much free in the room! The lemon verbena...

Our travel agent had booked this hotel and from reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I knew that we needed to be in the newer section of the hotel. We checked in and I found out we were NOT in the newer section so I asked how much an upgrade to the Bayview rooms would be. The receptionist initially said...

Our hotel room was surprisingly well put together. The room was spacious, the bathrooms were nice sized, well designed, and the balcony had very peaceful views of the bay. However, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. As for the service.. the front desk staff was very friendly at checkin, but when it came to getting anything else they were incredibly slow...

My family and I stayed at the Dana on Cinco de Mayo weekend ('13) and could not have been more pleased. The first impression you get is of a private resort more than just a hotel. Located on the bay with access to the water and the local park. With Sea World within walking distance you can save the parking...

My 9 yr old grandson and I stayed at the Dana in April, 2013. Nice room, good food at The Blue Pearl on-site. Staff very friendly and helpful. Transportation to Mission Beach would be nice. The pool was nice, but the weather was very chilly while we were there.

We had spent a few days in San Francisco and LA as part of our holiday and we wanted to go to San Diego for some sun and relaxation. We found the Dana suited our needs perfectly. We got to The Dana in a cab from Oldtown Amtrak Station (approx. $15). This is better than Amtrak to San Diego Central....

Upon arrival the Dana appears to be very clean and well kept. I take great care in making reservations when I travel with my two adult daughters who are wheelchair users. We truly enjoy each and every vacation and knowing that we have specific criteria to allow for an enjoyable vacation I check, double check and triple check. After check...

I booked our reservations from Hotel.com. The pictures listed on that website were of a very nice, newly constructed, two level Dana Hotel. The rooms were large, very nicely furnished, and overlooking the bay. When I got to our room I was so disappointed I just about cried. I wanted this to be the perfect vacation. The majority of the...

Nothing fancy, but it is clean. We had a great location in the 400 building on the first floor. The first floor rooms have a nice patio with a couple of chairs. Our patio was adjacent to the pool. The 2nd floor units don't have a patio. The room itself was small, the bathroom was tiny. We were busy doing...
