The Dana on Mission Bay, BW Premier Collection
Ranked #47 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2012

Beautiful property located in Mission Bay, providing a comfortable and inviting atmosphere to enjoy our get-a-way from home, celebrating my significant other's 50th birthday (lovefest). Most favorable part of our stay was the warm pool and hot tub; very nice swim with drink acommodations on hand.

Stayed in the newer bay view rooms as recommended in other reviews. Nice room, bathroom, beds, lanai. Notably, we could not hear other guests except for when door slammed on security locks. The older buildings looked a lot older so those reviews are probably accurate.

The Dana is an easy drive to Mission Beach, Belmont Park, and Sea World (there is a shuttle).

Both the Blue Pearl and the Firefly restaurants were good and kid friendly. Salad greens were better than expected.

The only negative was the surly, unhelpful front desk crew. Laundry closes at 9 pm. They don't tell you that at the front desk when you ask where it is at 8:15 pm. Need to break a 20? They don't do that after 8, either.

Room Tip: Definitely get the bay view rooms.

We were booked by hotwire for two nights and after the first night we upgraded to a lanai unit. This was exactly what we were looking for. We enjoyed it so much we returned after a weekend trip to Palm Springs and spent the balance of our two week vacation at the Dana. We loved the quick access to Pacific Beach. Talk about the California Dreamin - the weather was spectacular, our room had everything we needed and more. We ate at Firefly several evenings - great fries! Janelle and Joline on the front desk were exceptional at customer service, as were all the other staff we encountered. Will return and will recommend. And we didn't even have kids or visit Seaworld! A real resort feel close to everything.

Room Tip: we'd rebook the lanai king.

Beautiful grounds, friendly and helpful staff, good food, two hot tubs & pools, very clean rooms and great price, all adds up to a very good choice for vacationing in San Diego. You will probably need a car, it's not near downtown SD. Free shuttle to Sea World. Sure they have massage but we never had time for that, but we enjoyed the hot tubs. We had a great stay and recommend highly.

Room Tip: We had a great view of the marina, but rooms looking to the gardens would be terrific, too.

When you say in your advertising you truly appreciate us making this our home away from home –You are not kidding in that statement!!! I had the privilege of staying in your wonderful property for 7 amazing nights. It was a vacation very much needed and your accommodations were over the top! Great Room Service, Beautiful Pool, Great Dining in the Restaurants and the employees could not have been any kinder. From the Service Desk to the Maid Service. Kind and caring making sure everything was just the way I wanted it. Like I mentioned earlier that it was a very much needed vacation and because of your world class service it was one of my most enjoyable vacations on record!! Thank you to all of the wonderful staff at “The Dana” and I cannot wait to do it again next year!!!
