While Dana Point, California, is a high-end waterfront destination, there are still budget-friendly options for accommodations that can help you visit without breaking the bank. The Dana Point Marina Inn is a 136-room motel offering complimentary breakfasts to all guests enjoying the property located within steps of the marina. Rooms and suites have private balconies, refrigerators and coffee makers. The inn could use an update on its dÃ©cor and furnishings, but it provides a comfortable and clean environment with options of a king or two queen bed room. Harbor Side Suites provide a king bedroom and a living room with a queen pullout sofa, a dining area, fireplace, and a full kitchen with a microwave; these are great for families. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in all rooms, and guests will find self-service laundry services onsite. Cribs and rollaway beds are available, via request. An outdoor pool is heated and open daily. There isn’t a restaurant on premises, but the inn has special arrangements ate area restaurants and may be able to provide discounts.

Great location, easy access to the beach and friendly staff.
Room: felt a little small and a touch dated, it was more than a little small. There is very little shelving in the room we were in, plan on rotating bathroom items around.
Breakfast: Pretty standard and not much that stands out.
Staff: Trust Sam (at the front desk) for insights to local restaurant's he will not steer you wrong.
Stayed here before it has its location going for it if you want to be right by marina.
My complaint is the ac froze up and was not working properly water had been dripping on carpet for sometime.
Ask twice at front desk and was given an excuse as to ac effluence. Note I have built a motel for myself 60units and have rentals residential and commercial oh yeah I am also a general contractor I know if an ac unit is working properly.
I was willing to leave slider open to let evening breeze in but you could see into our room from hallway window.
Asked for another room and was told their 100%full. Must be nice if indeed that was the case.
Complain is nobody real cared one way or other it was our problem no offer to compensate us for their issues.
Should have taken responsibility and offer solutions.
