I'd avoid this hotel, no matter what offers you see. There are hidden costs, and the advertised services are lacking. There are so many comparable hotels at similar prices that are SO much better. The room is tired, smelly, and damp. They are clearly trying, but have missed the mark. There is a lot that needs to be upgraded (icky...

My husband and I visited San Diego for a honeymoon trip. The rates were great because it was midweek and in the off-season, but watch out for the $18 per day parking fee that they tell you about after you book. We ate breakfast at the restaurant on the property and it was okay and I would say it was...

We recently stayed at the Dana and had a very nice time. It is becoming our favorite place to stay when we visit San Diego-which is several times a year. We love the premium bay view rooms and try to book those each time. The view is amazing and they are comfortable and well appointed. We love the robes, nice...

I booked this hotel while I was in town for a conference - I stayed there for three days, two nights (Mon, Tue, left wed), I did get an excellent price for the room, but they stuck me at the end of the furtherest room, next to marina parking lot and maintenance. The hotel was pretty much open, being it...

We chose this hotel for the location and the fact that they offer 2 Queen beds in their rooms (vs. Full size a lot of hotels are offering these days). Our stay was fantastic. First, we arrived quite early (11AM) for check-in and they proceeded to check us right in without even a comment of it, and gave us a...

Surprisingly, the rooms were actually nicer in person than they looked in the pictures! And the beds were super comfortable. We had an awesome view of the bay. We ate at Firefly and it was delish! What I loved: the efficiency of the front desk staff (thanks Samantha and Jiselle!) There was no wait, our requests were met, parking was...

It was our second stay at Dana and being San Diegans, a perfect getaway once again minus the travel. Exceptional front desk service, clean room, all-around great location. Hangin' out by the pool and at the Firefly was so relaxing and so perfect for either a whole family or a romantic escape. I recommend the Dana to all my friends.

Best on site bar / eatery in a hotel that I have been to. Good value for the quality of the room that I stayed in. Right next to Sea World and other local attractions. Exceptional service from Jen, Vanessa and Ciara. Thank you will be back.
