Great location within minutes of everything. Gorgeous grounds for morning walks. Needed more attention to pool area and rooms could use some updating, but for the cost and the location and amount of time actually spent in the room it is worth it. Coupons to help with expense of meals if eating at the hotels restaurants were useful. Not great food, but […] handy. We loved Ralphie the friendly greeter at the bike rental hut on the walkway by the bay. Will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice amenities for a great price!"
Definitely worth the value! Staff was great and the amenities and facility are nice. The gym isn't much but a few 24 hour fitnesses are nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near Sea World"
Found very large spiders in the room, bathroom and bathmat looked like they had not been cleaned, and not sure what the resort fee was supposed to cover. Didn't receive anything special and it just felt like a hidden fee. Paid extra for "secured" parking (would have had to pay that anyway) yet the "security" gate was broken. To be fair, the hotel is […] very old and it isn't in a bad neighborhood but the extra fees didn't exactly feel right. The bed was very comfortable (but difficult to sleep when worried about spiders crawling around). Convenient location. Can't say much about the hotel service since they were busy and was rushed in and out without much conversation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good overall but.."
Overall it was a good hotel to stay with family. However parking fees $20 and resort fees $14 was out of all reasons. We didn't even use fitness center and spa but we had to pay $14 per day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Always good at Dana Inn !"
We always have a great stay at Dana Inn !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"They cheat guest"
The hotel of Dana on Mission Bay is overrated. The room was dirty and and non keeped. There were incects inside the room. The charge was too high for the kind of room offered. As we checked out they charged us an additional fee of $14.00 Dollars for the use of the grounds even thought we only sleeped there one night arriving at 11:00 PM and leaving […] early at 7:00 AM in the morning. They insisted it was a charge that hotels .com had been notified. That over charge never appeared in the room confirmation. hotels.com should investigate why this people missrepresent the hotel charges. The hotel should be rated only one star por the poor way that they treat the guest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stay at Dana"
Nice place, very close to the beach. I recommend this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rooms are a little shabby"
This stay started out badly when we were registering at the front desk while several seriously intoxicated men were in the lobby. My husband had to ask the men to be respectful and the staff apologized for the incident though it was not their fault. This is our second time to stay at this hotel and once again the grounds look beautiful and the staff […] is great but this time the room really needed some tlc. The shower was either was either cold or scalding hot, the TV had no signal, and the furniture was really beat up. When we told the front desk they were awesome and moved us to a much nicer room with a balcony over looking the bay. The second room was quite nice and in much better condition. The location of this hotel is perfect for us when we visit our son and we may stay here again but it would be difficult to recommend it to someone else as we wouldn't be sure of the accommodations.

"Quick stay to see San Diego"
Came for a 2 day stay to see San Diego on the way to a sports tournament in Palm Springs over Thanksgiving. Older Hotel, but rooms had been renovated. Baconys were n weekarrow on the upper floors. It was nice to be able to ioen the windows. Rooms were nice and comfortable. Breakfast in the Blue Pearl was delicious with HUGE portions. CAme back after […] dinner and enjoyed a cocktail by a fire pit with the family, the onlycomplaint was the bar closed early, but they allowed us to stay by the fire pit as long as we wanted.

Hotel OK. Needs to be renovated. Facilities are old.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The resort is clean and the staff is very friendly"
Our stay at the Dana on Mission Bay was great. We loved our view and both pools. Our son swam everyday that we were there. We knew about the extra fees ahead of time, so we weren't surprised by that. The hotel is close to everything in San Diego. The rooms are spacious with amenities such as microwaves. The food at the restaurant was very good. The […] gym is nice and I had a problem with my key card and they sent someone right over. The grounds are spotless and the views are perfect! We would stay here again without a doubt!

It was just fine. I did not use maid service. The restaurant was nice. I upgraded to a room with a view. The view was nothing to write home about. Very ordinary. Staff was very cordial and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Remote location, but fairly nice hotel"
We stayed here for two nights just to see a bit of San Diego. The hotel area was nice, the fitness room was on the small side, but overall a good first impression. The room was OK. It was fairly spacious, but we could clearly heard voices and noise from out next door neighbors and from outside. The hotel was close to Mission Beach which has a lot of […] nice cafes and also close to sea world is that where you want to go. However, do not stay here unless you have/rented a car. The hotel is located outside San Diego and there's really not that much around it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Want to come back already!"
The customer service went beyond our expectations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and quiet with bay view"
Older large resort with nice updates. Large quiet rooms, good firm bed, decent onsite restaurant. Only small gym. Near Sea World and Mission Bay but not within walking distance to other attractions, stores or restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel on the bay."
Nice view. Older section of hotel had been nicely upgraded. Enjoyed pool, fire circle, waterfront walking/running path, Blue Pearl breakfast. $20 a day parking fee absurd.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel next to Mission Bay"
Excellent room, beautiful view and a delicious breakfast at the onsite restaurant. Great rate on the room too! Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
View of the beach was awesome! Unfortunately finding a glob of hair in the shower and makeup on my pillow kind of tainted the magic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price"
Just what you would expect for the price. Simple Motel 6 size place for a good price. Right by Mission Bay and Sea World. The only catch is that they added a $17 resort fee to each reservation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Aged property with motel-like rooms (access to rooms from an outside gallery, no elevator), premium pricing for parking and bland interiors. On the positive side, the swimming pool area is nice, the Staff is friendly and the location on Mission Bay is pleasing. "Resort" fee, which is compulsory - why they don't include it in the room price? It's like […] the compulsory tips in restaurants - an American miserly oddity. Result: 3 stars over 5.

"We would absolutely stay there again."
The hotel and staff were great. Our room was upgraded for free. The pools were very family friendly. We were able to walk to Sea World and Mission Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your money here"
Save your money !!! 630 for four nights, Parking $20 per day is a ripoff.. We book a king bed standard room, after 8 hours drive from San jose to San Diego, the front desk staff gave me a key for 2 queen bed, when asked that I have confirmation for 1 king, the arrogant reply was, that was not guaranteed.. i guess all the queen beds are facing the road […] side.. Believe me we did not had a peaceful sleep for 4 days due to the untolerable sound from racing cars and bikes all night.. The only reason I booked this because we are with a kid and badly need refrigerator and microwave oven based on our previous experience without this on a earlier trip.. Dont get flopped by the scenic view they show on their website.. Stay away from this crappy hotel for what they charge.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location for beaches & Seaworld"
Great location, you can walk to Seaworld. Quiet area on the Bay & close to beaches. Rooms are motel style, but have some updates, & were clean & comfortable. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Ocean View, beautiful grounds."
We were displeased upon arrival to the Dana after our room had already been booked, to be told that the Dana charges $20.00 each day for parking. also they charge you an additional $7.00 per day Dana fee's? The carpet was in dire need of cleaning or replacement. The staff was pleasant and courteous , it is the management that has an arrogance or problem […] speaking to or making all of their residents feel welcomed or appreciated. It was the majority of the staff that keeps the Dana relevant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Gorgeous setting - you can't beat the view!"
SUMMARY: positive: view, service, room Negative: breakfast was overpriced and unappetizing Just spent one night in this lovely hotel, but wish it could have been longer! The staff was friendly and helpful, and the views of the bay at sunset were particularly stunning! Only complaint: the breakfast at The Blue Pearl was mediocre at best. We used the […] two-for-one breakfast coupon we were given but the meal was disappointing. I ordered corned beef hash, and what I was served had almost certainly come out of a can! Yuck! That was the only low point of an otherwise lovely stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Concern was not helpful"
Excellent location, ground, room. Especially strongly recomment balcony room. It is having spacious and clean and wonderful view room. Other rooms are just normal.

Upgraded upon arrival, beautiful view. Clean, modern and great location!Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved this hotel. When we got there we were a little disappointed with our small room but Shannon at the front desk said we would be able to upgrade. We absolutely loved the second room. It was very big and the view was great. It was clean and the people were all friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I WANTED to like this hotel; However, the rooms were very dated and had a stale smell that air conditioning could not address. Updates like new tile and granite counter tops were on top of old wooden framed bathroom vanities what had dust and dirt a half inch deep on the pipes...Tried not to look at this, but the microwave was underneath there, so I […] had to. Also, while the landscaping around the property, and the pool areas were very lovely and well maintained, the parking lots were overloaded with construction vehicles...either renovation is underway, or else construction folks are using the property as short term housing. Finally, while some rooms/views were probably amazing, my room was on the first floor, facing these construction vehicles and then the highway beyond...Loud and a bit unsafe for a woman travelling alone...

Nice location, sits on bay & marina. Better than I thought for a motel style hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great room with beautiful view!"
Met all our expectations & more. Didn't need too much, but helped immediately when asked.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall very good. Check-in was easy, room service good and quick, Room heating/cooling did not work but was not important (it is San Diego after all). Room was comforatble. Cleaning staff did excellent job.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice, quiet location. Nothing over the top for sure. But, beautiful views of the bay. Not to far from the beach and restaurants. Just don't expect the room to look like the pictures.. Was disappointed there was no private balcony at our unit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Probably not return"
Underwhelming- parking lot dark at night. Room had musty smell. View Of water was nor from patio/deck but from front door - odd. You couldnt sit and have a drink and watch the view..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, but hotel leaves a lot to be desired..."
Not all that impressed with this hotel. It looks like a nice place but the walls are super thin. Especially from the outside coming in. People walking in front of your room makes the whole room feel like an earthquake going on. Beautiful views of the bay. But wouldn't stay here again. A/C stopped working on us the last night. Bees kept finding their […] way in somehow through notches in the wood. Note that they charge $20 per night for parking. That wasn't listed anywhere on the hotels.com website. Plus they charge $14 per night for their hotel fee. Kind of feels like you get nickel and dimed to death. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A relaxing unpretentious, yet classy atmosphere. We chose a deluxe room on the Bay with a stunning view. We walked for miles and our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer.Genuine Expedia guest review

"The location of this hotel was incredible!"
Everything was fine...nothing too over the top in terms of quality or service, but definitely a place I will stay next time I come to the San Diego area. Our room was clean and comfortable, the grounds and amenities were well taken care of, and the proximity to areas I needed to visit in San Diego was a bonus! I'd definitely recommend to others when […] one doesn't need or expect the Ritz Carlton or Intercontinental, but wants a full service hotel with every important amenity and service.
