The property is easy to find next to a few eateries and bars. The beach is just across the street but will require a walk and stepping bridge over the train tracks. The room was comfortable with the two queen beds. The pillows and mattress maid for a good sleep. The only window that opens is the back window of...

This little inn is a jewel. Not only is it across from the PCH fro my he sea, but it is well located,to Laguna beach and Mission Capistrano. The manager Ferdinand is busy taking super good care of guests as well as the grounds. He is such a kind, considerate manager which is highly unusual in most hotels I've been...

Great Hotel! Great Location. Room was perfect. Customer Service was amazing! Everyone was very friendly. The only thing that I did not like was the breakfast. It was ok, not great, but I would stay at this hotel again. I loved it!

We had time for a quick get away and wanted to see Catalina Island. Staying at Dana Point gave us the opportunity to be close to the ferry for the morning cruise. The hotel room was nice and comfy. We spent the extra money for a balcony over looking the ocean. My bad, the weather was still a little chilly...

Steve was fantastic in handling my inspected check-in after a terrible check-in and room at hotel next door. But Steve made it painless and the room was gorgeous and the view outstanding. The other staff members were also wonderful! Thank you BW for making a bad situation into a fantastic experience!

We paid for the Ocean view I got a busy road/ fence/railroad view. If your ok with looking past the highway, fence , and railroad to see the Ocean it was fine. The view is an extra charge and really didn't have a decent view. Also breakfast was very small and seating is extremely limited.

Thank you for the review. Our hotel is considered to have one of the best views of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California with the closest proximity to the water. Our ocean view balcony rooms each have a 180 degree unobstructed view of the water and the entire hotel is raised 1 floor above sea level with the garage parking...

We like to visit the Dana Point Inn-by-the-Sea for a close to home getaway, just to relax near the ocean and watch the sun go down. Know that you will hear Amtrak going by. But that's part of the experience. Very comfortable hotel. On special occasions in the winter we ask for a room with a fireplace. Very cozy.

Let me start by saying "my wife does not like hotels" so it is very difficult to find something she fells comfortable with. We don't book hotels ahead of time because she has to get a feel for the place, check the room, etc. So, with that being said she fell in love with the place instantly and had me...
