Was in town for my 20th high school reunion, and wanted to stay near the beach. This hotel met all our expectations. We got a Ocean View room, which actually had an ocean view. We could actually hear the surf last night!

This hotel was very pleasant staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast choices was good. Location to beach was great, traffic was a bummer but the view was beautiful. Propery easy to find when getting into Dana Point, parking a little challenging

This is my second stay here in 18 months. Fernando (owner) and his staff are excellent. Everything was smooth and easy switching from a 1 night stay to a 2 night stay on a busy summer holiday weekend. I look forward to staying here again when I visit SoCal for work.

Very nice hotel and would recommend it to friends and family members. Very low key for middle of the week stay which was wonderful, very relaxed. Staff very nice and excellent service. Loved that it had a roof top terrace for viewing sunsets.

Our room was up to date and clean and we felt that it was a good room for the price. We had asked for a balcony room overlooking the ocean. We got one but the hotel is across the busy street from the ocean and the electrical/telephone wires prohibited a great view. The small courtyard is well kept and attractive....

My family stayed here for 6 nights to visit the local beaches. The hotel was clean and all the areas I saw seemed well maintained. The breakfast choice is good with waffles, ceral, pastries, baguels, scrambled egg, and sausages on offer with coffee and fruit juice. Perfect way to start the day was breakfast on the veranda - life is...

Completely overpriced for the condition of the room. There were ants in multiple places in our room that then got in my bags and were crawling on us in the car after. The hotel was such a disappointment. Parking is really tight with any type of larger car.

We spent one night here. This hotel is very close to a beautiful section of the California coast with Doheny Park Beach a 5-10 minute walk away. The room was fresh and clean with a fridge, and coffee making facilities. There is no room service or restaurant, save breakfast, however there are a lot of places to eat nearby including...

great and bad location at the same time, across the street, pch, from the beach and railroad, very noisy. had plumbing issues, a/c was replaced by room unit with no window screens, kinda not classy,, you can probably find better for same or less money nearby.

The staff is very excellent. The property is older and slightly in disrepair (i.e. - loos tiles on second floor in front of the elevator; the elevator is old and clunks a bit during operation; the bathroom was extremely small and a very tight fit for my wife and I who are larger people; the a/c does not blow even...
