Lovely staff - got in in the evening, jumped into the perfect temp jacuzzi and enjoyed the buzz of the restaurants nearby. Lovely little shops to meander around the next morning. We had one of the new rooms - just perfect!

Standard, bit dated hotel but perfectly situated in Dana Point harbor. Ask for a room overlooking the marina. Smallish pool, bike rentals available, plenty of nearby tourist traps and restaraunts. Reasonable rates.

The hotel was built in the 70's and not all of the rooms updated, but still very nice. We reserved a standard room and realized that it was not going to work. The manager was very helpful and up graded us to a suite and a discount. The contenential breakfast had a lot of selectio

Receptive staff, rooms neat and comfortable, pool very nice. Could use a change in pillows though. A bit noisy on the road side but still tolerable. Good value for your money and the breakfast made it easy for our trip to Catalina and our departure..

I just wanted to double check on the free parking. Is anything required to be done before arriving/checking in? Thank you in advance.
Basically you park wherever there is a spot upon arrival, then upon check in they will give you a placard to hang from your review mirror throughout your stay. If you haven't already i'd suggest making a reservation before arrival as hotels in that area do sellout fairly quickly.

Are you pet friendly. I have a small 8 lb dog.
No...unless they've again changed the rules...call them direct...their web site does not give the best rates...you have to ask for specific discounts as well as specifying the room placement you want

When is free breakfast served?
Every morning but it's a basic breakfast, cereals, toasts, bagels, yogurt, orange juice, coffee, all of this at will.

Is this hotel due for renovations and/or add on of additional rooms within the next 8 months?
Lela R. To answer your question...we are always doing something to improve the hotel. I have projects slated and in the works every year. New bathrooms - 10 to 20 per year, new mattresses (20+ per year) Kitchenette remodels, new carpets 20+ rooms per year and many other projects. This is usual business for ongoing upkeep and upgrading. Yes, some rooms are "nicer" than others and I assure you, all are on the list to have something done in time. The harbor view rooms and the pool side rooms are the best in my opinion, while the standard rooms (non-harbor, pool views) are the best value. Our hotel is an older, limited service hotel with a great location and even better value for the area. We are not a Marriott or Hyatt and do not market the hotel as such. But, we do have a passion for making your stay as enjoyable as possible. Hope that answers your question. Tony Kaspar General Manager Dana Point Marina Inn

"Ask for a room overlooking the marina"
"2nd floor still had a view of the harbor and the pool..quiet during the week. Weekends get a little busier!"
"Don’t spend extra money on the pool view side."
"Make sure to ask for a room with a harbor, court yard, pool view."
"If you tell the front desk what you want in a room, they are very happy to oblige."
