Best Western Plus Dana Point Inn-By-The-Sea
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Dana Point
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2013

If you're looking for a quaint comfortable and clean option when staying in Dana Point, CA this is the place. If you're not afraid of staying directly off the highway, that is. I was willing, and loved it! Very close to bridge walkway over Pacific Coast Highway; giving me direct access to the ocean and Doheny Park. Walking distance to restaurants. Would stay there again, and recommend to other adventuresome spirits.

Unavoidable: The car traffic and the train traffic if you want the view. We had an Oceanfront king room. It was extremely nice. Nicely furnished...refrig, microwave, easy chair, business desk, flat screen, balcony etc.
Very friendly staff, underground free parking, free wi-fi, free breakfast. I would 100% stay there again and deal with the traffic noise to have the view.
No pool but an oceanfront hot tub.

I found the Best Western at Dana Point a very pleasant place to stay when you need to be close to Laguna Beach. Laguna Beach was expensive and crowded so we booked a room at Dana Point. This was convenient to Laguna Beach and best of all, was very comfortable. The rooms have been attractively decorated in pleasing colors. Choose a room away from the street so you'll avoid street noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from the highway.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable experience. The room had plenty of space and we had a lovely view of the ocean. There was free parking - a nice perk since many of the hotels in DP charge for it. They served a hot and cold breakfast with a variety of choices. There was a beach was across the street and a 10 minute drive to the DP Marina. Loved walking around the marina - good for a fast walk or a run. If you're not looking for a high-end resort, this BW is a great alternative.

Whenever possible we make the trip from WI to CA and visit our Marine son at Camp Pendleton. We've stayed at the Inn by the Sea two times in the past seven months. The owners and their employees could not have been more hospitable towards us. All were very friendly, courtious, and helpful. Ferdinand and Steven remembered us from our first visit. The property is very well kept and clean. The rooms we occupied were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. In comparison to other hotels that we haved stayed at the Continental breakfast that they serve is one of the best that we have had. The Hotel is on the PCH with easy access to the beach and easy access to the Interstate. Our son will return to the states in May of 2014 and we look forward to staying with Ferdinand and Steven again.

tell anyone about this hotel cuz it will end up costing me a weekend at this hotel from overbooking.This hotel is first class in everyway,it is family owned and they take great pride in their hotel,the place is spotless clean,the rooms have flat screen tvs hd etc,the location is ideal from our balconey we had a an unobstructed view of the pacific ocean,Doheny st park is right across pch1 at this park you can park your car less than 50' from the beach rarely did we see more than 30 people on the beach very quiet and relaxing,for dining less than 5 miles away is dana point harbor that had at least 8 restaurants that serve fresh seafood,we sampled 3 of them and all were excellent,the rooms are alittle old but well maintained and clean well stocked with nice coffemakers etc.we had a king suite oceanview with fireplace and a kickass balconey facing the ocean it was beautiful,here are the downsides,the hotel is right on pch1 which is noisy in the morns,also there are traintracks between the hotel and the beach the train is noisy but it didnt bother us,price for the rooms are not cheap but to me well worth the value,we had a great stay

Room Tip: get ocean view

The entire staff was very attentive and helpful. The location was very nice with a few mitute walk to the beach, which was visable from our room, and large deck. A very nice stay overall, and the owner, Fernando, bent over backwards to ensure was smooth and enjoyable. Very nice people.
