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......

Exceeded our expectations

After a very long car ride with 6 teenagers it was a wonderful surprise to find such a beautiful, well maintained resort. Rooms were lovely, clean and well equipped. Access to pools, lobbies, facilities was easy and secure. Restaurants and conveniences on site were a plus. Staff was friendly and extremely accomodating. Would definiately come again!!!!

Great Hotel

We arrived right at the check in time and we were informed our room had been upgraded and it would be a 20 minute wait. After waiting an hour we received a second upgrade to a beautiful room with a porch with access to the bay area. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and the waiting we had to do did not matter. The pools are incredible and so is the breakfast. Parking is 20 dollars so keep that in mind. If I come back, I will be staying at this hotel. (it is also right in the middle of everything, they have a sheet with directions to all main attractions if you ask for it)

Fabulous

I love this vacation spot and will definetly go back. The only downer was the customer service when we tried to rent the jet ski's was poor and we didn't rent them because the way we were treated by the gentleman working.
