Classic vintage Cali-feel in a great location; casual vibe, lovely evening views, close to both the Harbor and the Pacific. Within minutes of Mission Beach boardwalk & and famed Belmont Park. Beach combing, surf shops and casual dining nearby. Short drive to PB (Pacific Beach).

Rooms were nice and the location is perfect. The only downfall is the requirement of transportation to get around elsewhere in the city. It's right on the bay and close to sea world but there weren't many places to eat besides the hotel. As long as you have transportation, stay here! 😊

My wife lodged at The Dana from 11/16/2016 until 11/21/2016. I joined her on 11/20. My wife had nothing but great things to say about the staff and the service they provided during her stay there. The rooms and furnishings a bit dated and my wife requested a new room because her original room was missing the security chain from... More

Check in was smooth and easy, room wasn't ready (we were early) but we were able to get changed and use the pool. We had a deluxe room in the 1000 building, beautiful park/water view. Pools were good, hot tubs could be cleaned more often (band aids floating...). They have movies by the pool at night. In room dining staff... More

When you hear the words "premier', "resort", etc. you expect a nice hotel. The Dana is more like an upgraded Motel. I had booked a standard room for 4 nights. The positives were-- 1) Spacious rooms including bathrooms. There were double vanities! 2) Clean 3) Close to Seaworld. Barely 5 minutes. Hotel also provides a free shuttle to and fro... More

We stayed at the Dana for 4 nights while participating in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day walk recently. Everyone we encountered on the staff was really nice, and went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome. The restaurant manager (Sarah) even made a special accommodation for us on Sunday night (at the conclusion of the walk)... More

We were impressed with the amenities ( two pools, one for adults and one for kids with a dive in movie). Our room was facing the harbor, a nice scenic view to wake up to. The room decor was fashionable, with shutter windows, and beds were comfy. It has a nice LG TV, refrigerator, microwave, and in room safe box.... More

This trip was to walk for Susan G. Komen, 3 day, 60 mile walk in San Diego. The hotel was very accommodating for the many rooms it filled with walkers. The lobby was decorated for the group, coffee/tea was available early in the morning for us to pick up shuttle buses to the event, and the staff were very friendly.... More

Ask for suite 2200 for this view. Really great value. Perhaps it was an off-peak time but we felt it was a very good value for the quality we received. There isn't any fanfare or commercialization around this property. Just a quiet, pleasant place to stay.
