The Dana on Mission Bay

This is a great hotel located on Mission Bay. Has the charm of old California, but has been renovated with modern style. Staff is excellent, two restaurants with great food, very convenient. Two pool areas. Would definitely stay there again!

Lost in the Palm Trees

Tropical setting, away from "city". Nighttime movies at poolside great for families. Vending machines good for snacks. The 2 restaurants were average. Ground floor older units had lovely patios. Wouldn't want to stay on second floor.

quiet, relaxing and beautiful views

From checking in to checking out we couldn't ask for a better place. The room was great with a beautiful view of the bay. Beautiful walk around bay and a good walk to Mission Beach. Sea World was in walking distance or if you would rather, there was a shuttle. The restaurant Fire Fly on the premises was fantastic, with good drinks, food and desert. We would return again and again,

Terrific Family vacation

The only problem we had with our room 2104 is we had tiny ants coming up through our sink. We asked that they spray and they did, but they were back two days later. Other than that, it was perfect. Our son stayed in 2101 and they had no problems whatsoever. Him and his girlfriend were completely satisfied with their room. We will definately go back.

The place to spend some time in San Diego

With plenty of things to see and do right on property, this is the place to relax and spend some prime leisure time. The rooms were a bit small, but being an older establishment, that was the build of the day. They have kept up with remodels and yet retained the "well aged ambiance" that is The DANA......
