Best Western Plus Marina Shores Hotel
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Dana Point
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Overall a good experience. You get what you pay for, clean room with a good bed. Parking is abundant and location is not far from the beach. Also has a good free breakfast in the morning. I wished the workout room was bigger and also that the pool had a hot tub. The pch highway is annoying at night as well.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

Sometimes you get a little MORE than you pay for. We hope you enjoyed the free upgrade to the king whirlpool suite. It was our way of saying "Happy Anniversary!"

Tom, it was our pleasure to take good care of your tenants while the repairs at your units were being done. Being displaced from a home or apartment is stressful for anyone, but the staff made sure the Marina Shores made a good home-away-from-home for all those affected. I appreciate the recognition for my part, but the staff of the hotel were the real heros for you.

Thank you for the wonderful review Michael. We appreciate your bringing up the point that the Marina Shores Hotel is an excellent choice for both families and business travelers. We've had several guests comment that our two-room suites in particular enables them to use the room as a satellite office. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope your event was productive.

Very nice and modern hotel, just two blocks from the beach. Our suite was nicely furnished and very comfortable, partial view of the ocean. Service from check in to check out was great. Breakfast was good too. Lots of restaurants in the area, we enjoyed "Jacks" for dinner. Looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: The suites are very nice!

The location was perfect in Dana Point off PCH. The hotel is very nice, clean and the rooms were spacious and decorated really nicely. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place, as you can't beat the price.

Great location in Dana Point. Friendly, helpful staff. Close to restaurants and excellent place to stay before catching the ferry to Catalina. Good breakfast. Great beds! Have stayed here before and we'll be back again.

Our three favorite words are "we'll be back!" So glad you enjoyed your stay. Tell your friends about our beautiful little getaway community, the convenience of the ferry to Catalina ... and of course about the value and comfort of the Marina Shores Hotel.
