I was wandering around California in search of adventure, weirdness, employment, the meaning of life, and a new surf board. Infinity Surf is right up the street from this Best Western, so I decided to stay here.
Called as I was driving around, found the room rate of $112 for the night to be spot on, and they had a vacancy. I was a happy camper.
Checked in without hassle. Parking is a little tight, so if you drive something bigger than my FJ, you might be SOL for parking here. However, my little red beach wagon fit right into one of the spots by the door, so I was able to unload my new board and my bag without hassle.
Got up to my room, very happy with what it was. Great jacuzzi tub in this place, so if you're sore after a day of driving like was, you can just jump right in and soak your woes away.
Room was clean, beds were clean, TV was big and well set up. Ordered a pizza, watched some pointless drivel on the TV, and was happily off to dream land. Best of all it had two queen beds in the room, so my new board had a bed of its very own.
If I ever end up in Dana Point again, I will absolutely be staying here again.
