    Nice clean room. Hotel is well kept. Personnel are pleasant. It is across a busy street from a nice beach. About a mile or two into Dana Point. Breakfast is simple but fine. Would recommend to families and business travelers.

    You have to walk down PCH a little bit to get to the pedestrian bridge or a signal down the opposite direction, south of the hotel, to cross over to the beach.
    Thanks everyone for all of the helpful answers to my questions!

    garage is not very high......not all places will agree........ yes there is air condition.
    I have a couple of questions regarding the hotel 1. We will have a minivan - can it fit in the parking spaces under the hotel? 2. We will be there in December - so we probably do not need it - but wanted to find out if there was air conditioning in the rooms? Thanks!
