“Don't Miss This One!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

On two occasions, my husband and I have chosen the Dana Point Marina Inn for week-long stays in Southern California. This hotel offers all the comforts and feeling of home. The rooms are squeaky clean; the staff super friendly, knowledgeable and courteous; and the location, five-star. The hotel is right on the harbor and a minute's walk to retail stores and restaurants. It's hard to resist the view--hundreds of boats languishing in the blue water of the harbor. We would rate our experiences at this hotel among our very best hotel stays. It offers a continental breakfast in a newly refurbished breakfast room. There, we met several interesting people, including a Ph.D. anthropologist, who was absolutely fascinating. If you are planning a stay near Dana Point, and you are looking for first-class, but affordable accommodations, try the Dana Point Marina Inn. By the time we left the hotel on our second stay, we knew many of the staff on a first-name basis. Go there. You won't be sorry.

Room Tip: We have stayed in both the older part of this hotel and the refurbished area. We loved both!

We stay one to two weeks, several times a year at the DPMI. It is a great location, reasonably priced, and the staff are the greatest. Several restaurants are within walking distance and the harbor area is a nice place to socialize. The latest renovations will add to the ambiance.
A stay includes continental breakfast. Most staff are long term employees, knowledgeable, and eager to help out with touristy information. CJDP

Room Tip: Bay or pool view rooms are worth the slight extra cost.

The location of this hotel is fabulous, the staff is,always friendly. We stay here two or three times a year and always enjoy our time there. The harbor area is a grand place to walk,eat and just relax. There are several restaurants in walking distance from the hotel. Laguna Beach is just a short drive. The Christmas lights at the Ritz are a must to see.

Room Tip: Harbor view is the best if you have never been there.

Great location right in the Dana Point Marina. The rooms are spaciou, with vending machines on each floor. There is also a nice continental breakfast included each morning. Will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

We had an amazing stay with superb restrauents within walking distance. We also enjoyed the walking areas around the harbor and to the nearby ocean. The Inn employes were very courteous and informative with any / all questions. This Inn was very nice, we enjoyed the room, the grounds and the delicious complementary breakfast. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone who loves the beach and enjoys walking in areas surrounded by beautiful landscape.

Great spot. Staff was friendly and courteous. The room was beautiful and very clean. The hotel was quiet, and even serve a full hot breakfast in the morning. The surrounding of the hotel is clean and in good shape. Easy to park and its free. Absolutely more than I expected.

Always clean with great customer service! We always enjoy our time here. Close to everything. Love that we can walk everywhere from here. Will keep coming here. The room is usually ready early which makes our stay even better.
