Too expensive for the condition of the room.

Beautiful location and pleasant, well kept room. Loved the fact that I could walk to my conference at Marina Village. Food ok, if not great. Pleasant patio dining area. Excessive charges for what shouldn't have been extras, e.g. parking, required resort fee when wouldn't be using the "resort" part of the property - just staying there while attending the conference. Stated that they had free shuttle service but it only went to Sea World - not airport.

It was nice and quiet and close to where we needed to be.

We enjoyed a pleasant stay at the Dana on Mission Bay. The location was attractive and convenient.

Better matress

Nice place to stay

It's nice and affordable

Beautiful pool and dining area

Only one dining option. Did not clean room daily. Pools are nice. If you don’t have rental car, Mission Beach is within walking distance. Asked twice to have receipt emailed to me and has been three days since check out and still haven’t seen it.

Marina view not what I expected at all

Great hotel

The location of this property is wonderful, and when you pull in, it is hard not to be impressed. Once you get to your room, however, your impression changes to “meh”. The rooms feel very dated and they are not very clean. The beds are firm and comfortable, but the walls are paper thin, so you can hear other guests conversations, when they get up to use the restroom - everything. They charge a resort fee, which is fine but housekeeping only comes in Tuesday and Thursday. We arrived on a Friday and left on a Monday, so we never received any housekeeping services. We had no fresh towels and ran out of toilet paper. I called the front desk twice to request these things. I finally gave up and just bought toilet paper. We had a room with a small lanai, which was nice for relaxing in the evening, but it looked like it hadn’t been pressure-washed in a long time. Our room was kind of dark and dingy - just not what I expected from the photos and upgrade to a nicer room. Also, the movies they show poolside are a nice tough, but beware- if you aren’t interested in watching on any given night, but your room is nearby, it will be difficult to watch anything different as the volume is very loud and it drowns out your own TV. I get that COVID has changed much in the service industry, but I also think some places are using it to avoid providing good customer service. There is more I could write here, but you get the idea. Nice resort, nice location, rooms and service were a disappointment.

It was very convenient. Easy to find, and it was an enjoyable stay. Oh and yes, I will come back very Very soon.

Our room was next to the pool and the kids loved the evening movies they played. Very friendly staff. Quick and easy shuttle service to SeaWorld.

The hote was very accessible to Seaworld, downtown, and restaurants.

Great facilities
