This is not a bad hotel to stay at for only a couple of nights. The location is good, you need a car though to drive you to the restaurants near the water with views. The parking is only $10 per night which is a lot cheaper than most 4 to 5 star hotels in the area. I do feel that the parking fee should be waived. Some Best Western hotels offer free parking, others do not. The Best Western brand should keep it consistent. Breakfast was okay. I don't think real eggs were used or sausages either. They did not taste like the real stuff you eat from at your local weekend diner. Given the price paid for our stay here, breakfast was included in the rate, having said that, if you feel that a really good breakfast should be the most important start to your day, there are a few breakfast eateries near the hotel you can try out. The Best Western PLUS Marina Shores Hotel in Dana Point is a nice little hotel to stay at to explore Dana Point, it's not a luxury hotel like the Ritz Carlton. I did enjoy my stay here, as long as you have a car that can take you places. The price for a night's stay here is very affordable and reasonable.
