Recent guest reviews

Good location. Facilities are a bit dated but there is a pool and hot tub.

I am irritated from our recent stay. The location could not have been any more perfect, but the service was less than mediocre. Twice there were no towels for us when we were using the pool, so we had to drip dry. Then, one morning we did not have any food for breakfast... nothing! We asked the staff what we were supposed to do, and she said she had no clue that we should go ask the manager. The other mornings for breakfast, we were told we needed to warm up our oatmeal in our microwave, but… we didn’t have a microwave. Then the other mornings there weren’t spoons available for the yogurt and oatmeal. What’s the point of having oatmeal and yogurt without a spoon? I paid for a hotel with breakfast, a pool with towels and service when needed. Based on the low reviews, I didn’t expect the service to be outstanding, but I still expected what I paid for... food, towels and utensils for the food. Upon check out, the woman who asked me how my stay was, she was wonderful. However, There is no real customer satisfaction other than apologizing and telling me that is not the service I should have received. She then did inform me that you can use forks for your oatmeal And yogurt. I then emailed the hotel afterwards and no reply.

Nice area, book for ocean view but did not get it. No microwave

Disgusting and filthy. Furniture is falling apart. Walls are peeling paint and dirty. Bathrooms are horribly disgusting

Very kind people. Other guests with dogs was very disturbing ... dog fight outside in middle of night

Great location Would stay at this property again.

AT THE MARINA NEAR THE OCEAN EASY DRIVE TO THE WAVES AND PARKS NEXT TO IT.

Lady staff are very much into their personal ohone calls and texting. Our door key magnetized after first use several times. Just several disappointing service incidents. Would stay again as location is incredible.

Location is perfect—so much to do at Dana Point Harbor. Super clean & comfortable hotel, employees were nice & welcoming. It was just what we needed in every way.

Front desk Ahmid &Sky were super helpful! Love Jons fresh fish close by &paddling harbor &surfing Doheny awesome fun!

Great location! Staff was very friendly and attentive. Very good breakfast and lovely walks around the harbor.

Alexander was great at the front desk; with free breakfast, they ran out of cream cheese on one day and still out the following day. Considering it is a holiday weekend, they should have planned accordingly.

Morning strolls to the harbor a lot of fun. Good restaurants and of course the ocean.

Location is outstanding! Walk to restaurants, shops & beach. Overlooking Dana Point Harbor with it’s sidewalk “trail”. Free trolley can can even take you to Laguna Beach! Property renovation is ongoing .Complementary breakfast buffet with waffle maker .. top notch staff!

Thank you for this information. I am not sure that you want to hear another apology. I can tell you that due to the Covid 19 pandemic we are going through constant rule changes & transitions. We are however going to be replacing the entire hotel with a brand new one here within the next few years.
