This is the only hotel in Dana Point Marina and it is within walking distance to restaurants and 2 beaches. Doheny and the Baby Beach. The hotel was in good shape. They have a built-in pool which i believe is heated and hottub. We stayed in Room 334 which was noisy due to the air conditioner from the unit below...

This hotel is in the Harbor just a little northwest of the main parking lot for the restaurants and the shops at the Harbor. I have stayed here several times while moving to Dana Point or when my landlord has to do repairs that require me to vacate my rental. I have stayed overnight and for as long as two...

Hello 333Greenman, Thanks for the kind words. We pride ourselves are a very community oriented hotel and love our locals. We do offer midweek discounts. Our rates are VERY reasonable considering the location (Dana Point Harbor). Hope to see you again. Best regards, Tony K. - General Manager

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren and had a really good time in the DP Marina Inn. The rooms were comfortable, breakfast was good and the children liked the pool and hot tub. The price of the rooms are reasonable and are good value for money I can certainly recommend the Inn and if we go...

Thanks for the kind comments. We really try to be a family oriented hotel. The shops and restaurants and beaches are only steps away. It makes for a great value family get-away. Hope to see you soon. Tony K. Manager Dana Point Marina Inn

We stayed here because it was cheaper than hotels in Laguna Beach. But remember you get what you pay for. The bathroom was unpleasant. Someone had used an abrasive cleaner on the bathtub unit and it was wrecked. It looked unclean no matter what they tried. The ventilation fan was so noisy it sounded like a spaceship was about to...

Hello Goldfinger66, My first question is you mentioned the hotel was on the bay. We are located in a harbor. There is a hotel with a similar name located near a bay. So, I just want to make sure we are the correct hotel. This error in hotels happens all the time. If we are the hotel you stayed at...

My friend has a boat at the Dana Point Marina so I always come down and stay at the Dana Point Marina Inn which is conveniently located directly across from the Marina. There are great eating establishments close by and trails to walk along the Marina. The room was clean with mediocre decor that gave it an older beachy vibe....

Great location rooms all have a small kitchen and fridge. Walk at the door and your looking at the marina. Nice restaurants all around the marina. Located 5 minutes from laguna beach . Took a boat ride to see the dolphins and the seals. Loved it

There are not many places in California where you can stay on the coast for this price. This is not a 5 star resort and the price reflects that. The rooms have everything you need, the bed is comfortable and breakfast is thrown in. Everyone we spoke to who worked there was lovely.

Bathroom fixtures are really old and worn and look disgusting. (See pictures) The walls are thin to the point of easily hearing conversations next door, bath fans are noisy and so is the refrigerator. They don't have any door closers so people can slam the door to the room next to you and keep waking you up. They have a...

This an odd review. First and the most concerning are the pictures of the bathroom. They are absolutely NOT of our hotel. Secondly, we do have a Manager on Duty at all times. In fact, there is a resident manager on site, a upper level sales manager 7 days a week and the General Manager works six days a week....

Just spent 9 nights here, visiting from the East coast. I was quite pleased with this establishment. First, its not the Hilton its a Marina motel so these are motel accommodations so I judge/review on this basis. Very nice, clean and comfortable. Really LOVE the location as well. At night from the balcony I could hear the sea lions barking...
