The Dana on Mission Bay, BW Premier Collection

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms were clean. They have outside entrance Good beds and pillows!!!!!! Don't hesitate My wife and I loved it Thank you Dana employee's for your efforts!!!!!!!!!!!

Check in was easy and the staff were very nice and helpful. Our room overlooked the marina and it was beautiful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I would stay here again.

I don't like the room I had, and will definitely book more premier room in building of 2000 which has bay view.

Well if you don't get a suite don't stay here. Older part of hotel not well cared for with crumbled paint and in my room bathroom had mold on ceilings. Other new side hotel looks nice. The front desk staff seemed ambivalent if you are not with any of the large groups or weddings the often held here.

I had a one-night stay-cation at this resort, and it was better than I could have expected. I was able to enjoy a complimentary upgrade to a suite located on a corner with a balcony overlooking the bay and marina. What a score! I ordered room service twice and both times were wonderful (basic quesadilla and omelette, but still tasty) and every member of staff I came into contact with was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable, and though some of it could have used updates to the design, I really didn't have any complaints. The only truly negative experience I had was when I had dinner at the on-site restaurant. San Diego is a mecca for delicious food options, and the Firefly was just terrible. From food to slow service (even if it was slow service with a friendly demeanor) it was a lackluster experience. While I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again, I can't say that I would go to their restaurant. Luckily getting around San Diego is relatively easy, but if you don't have a car and don't want to take Uber or a taxi to leave the resort, then you're very limited on what you can eat.

Room was very nice, pool and jacuzzi top shape. Felt more like a resort. Marina and water sports rentals

Room service was there everyday, enjoyed the hot tub and on sight pool. Firefly the onsite restaurant was also great. Would stay there again!

Nice and close to beach and food. Super close to Sea World.

The property is beautiful with good staff. The rooms have 2.5/5 bedding, slow/water-saving shower, wifi speed/connection is so/so, and the air conditioner is in the back by the bathroom which are the "con." The property is easily accessible with great parking and entertainment (rentals for boats, jet skis, etc.; also ping pong, and close to other beach attractions with two great pools). Public areas to be outside by the bay, but little to ever used by non guests. Would give this place a 3 out of 5 on the star rating - mostly because for the price the rooms themselves are below average - but the experience was at least a 4 out of 5.

The staff was very friendly. I was surprised at how nice the location was. The room, while small, was spotless and smelled very clean. The front desk receptionist placed us near the pool that held night time movie nights and told us about the fire works. Loved out relaxing stay here.

The hotel staff was very pleasant and the hotel definitely had the "resort" feel to it. The room was very clean and well kept. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful place, had fun in the pool/jacuzzi. The bed was rock hard but the experience was great. Loved the fireworks!

Excellent location, very clean and quiet rooms. Our room was very spa-like, included small fridge. Will recommend to friends and family!

Make sure you are watching the dive in movies nightly and enjoying the salt water pools. Incredible time with my family. So much fun and minutes to Mission Bay Beach.

great location. on bay. a mile from Mission Beach. Next to Seaworld. Convenient to downtown. Staff was helpful and friendly. Hotel was a little dated but nothing that took away from our experience.

On the water, two pools with separate hot tubs, beautifully landscaped . Saw sea workd's fireworks each night from our walkway. Close to everything. Very friendly and helpful staff.

A little disappointing. The staff did not seem to try very hard to please the guests. Check in we arrived early and they said they would call when the room was ready. Never did. Came down for coffee offered in the lobby and the coffee urn was empty and took about 15 minutes to get more while myself and 5 other guests waited. Fitness room had a tv on the wall but was not hooked up.

A great location for families. Two pools which is nice. Very friendly staff.

Price was reasonable, food and drinks were delicious. Very close to mission beach and ocean beach.
