After all day at sea world, we only had to cross the street and we were at our hotel. It really looks like you are in a tropical area with all the palm trees and beautiful landscaping. The people who work there are very friendly. Our room was comfortable and clean, but yes a private vanity area would make it better. We arrived at about 8 walked over […] to the Firefly restaurant for dinner. We had a great server plus delicious food( not too pricy) and it was a very elegant place, but diners were casual attire. At the pool they had the Lego movie on a big screen. So great for kids. My favorite part of stay was we were able to watch the awesome fireworks show from in front of our hotel.

Nice room, nice spa, close to restaurant, would stay again for sureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great view of the marina. Air conditioner could be located better, it is located in the washroom area and doesn't get much air flow in the room. But being in San Diego it was only needed to cut down what humidity there was. Restaurants very good and great service. All in all was a wonderful stay. Also could see fireworks nightly from Sea World.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When I first reserved the cost was about 350 per night. At the check in counter they started tacking fees. 20 for parking per night and a 14 dollar resort fee. The room wasn't all that either. The shades were broken and the restroom was standard. Totally different than the pictures. Only good thing about this place is the walking distance to sea world. […] At 400 per night; I got ripped off. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disappointing, shabby property"
Felt like a bait and switch. Website photos made property appear nice, but the service was indifferent, half of the motel-style property are older buildings, even newer/updated pool had shabby and dirty chaise covers. Our room (#301) was hot--above the laundry--the A/C ran nonstop & couldn't cool it, and not very clean. No view. Not worth the price […] to me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It wasn't worth what we paid, and we got a deal from this site. I would have explained in detail, but my explanation was first too long. After adjusting, my criticism was taken as "inappropriate language". I believe I used the word that rhymes with spell, and relates to the under world, which was what I was comparing the temp in my room to. Whatever. […] Would I stay here again? Ah no. A litany of issues from plumbing, noisy air conditioner, and no sound barriers between you and your neighbours or any walkers by. There was one awesome bar tender. He knew a lot about the local craft beers and made a delicious white sangria. That was all that was good. Oh, pools and location were both ok. All in all, I would recommend avoiding. Even at a discount. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed the pools, especially the salt water pool. The rooms while clean were a bit on the small side. We had a double queen room and with 4 people it was crowded. We also had a water pressure problem with the shower. The first night was fine but the second night and the next morning we're frustrating. Overall the stay was enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The outside landscaping is beautiful. The room I was in was old, run down and dirty. Lost electricity at one point which was never addressed by hotel. Pay for wi-fi in resort fees, but it was weak and pretty much not usable, was unable to use on all devices. Pool next to our room was filthy and ran out of towels daily. Rooms are very small. Outside […] is gorgeous and location was great. Will never stay there again nor would I recommend it. Just keep going a 1/2 mile down road and stay at Bahia. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at this hotel for about 5 years now and I'm still in love with it. The location is superb for so many activities. Rentals on site, Seaworld a block away, Whale watching across the street! My advice is to call directly first to check for best price before making any moves on another site. I absolutely love this hotel it's a must if you want […] a fun filled and relaxing vacation!

"Great place for the whole family!!!"
They have so much to do within walking distance for people of all ages. Everything is reasonably priced and you get to watch the fireworks from Sea World every night. The fish market has delicious breakfast sandwiches and carries just about anything you may have forgotten. We'll be going back again next year!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never vacation during 4th of July weekend"
Very crowded place for a family vacation. No parking spaces available. Bathroom doors don't lock and they are sliding doors. No restrictions to occupancy for each room, our neighbors had at least 10 people all in 1 room. It was horrible experience and expensive, not worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Treated like pests"
Got treated like bums that they were trying to shoo away. We arrived for check in around 12, and naturally were told rooms aren't ready until 4pm, no problem at all. That part I expected. However, we were told that the first room that became available would be ours and that it would probably be in an hour. Over the next 4 hours while sitting in the […] front area, we watched party after party get checked into their rooms. I asked a couple of times if there was a room available for us, and we were always told no. Finally, right at 4 they give us our room. Its the WRONG room, and after we tell them what kind of room we actually reserved, they argued with me about it at the desk in front of everyone in the lobby, and essentially made the point that because we used a third party booking site (hotels.com) that they weren't in a hurry to accommodate us. When we finally got into our correct room, we noticed several of the same rooms were clean and empty and they definitely could have checked us in earlier. We were given dirty looks everywhere we went in this hotel, and we were treated like pests. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very nice. Good room service. DIdn't know about the second pool - wish they desk had told us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved it! Great pool!!! Nice room. Very friendly service. Excellent food at their restaurant. While I did not think the hotel warranted "resort" quality, I had a very lovely time and the hotel was close to the nearby beach. My only complaint is the $20 per day parking fee. I think this is ridiculous. You need a key to get into the parking lot and […] this lot is on site. I simply don't understand why they are price gouging for parking. Increase the room fee and pay their employees a little more to keep the parking lot clean. This parking fee was excessive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient to Sea World"
Relaxing and funGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well worth the money for Sunday thru Thursday"
Let's start with the great things about this place: 1. It's right on the harbor and right next to Sea World. (You could walk to Sea World from here) 2. You get to see the Sea World fireworks every night in the summer 3. The room has a big screen TV that allows you to hook up your own HDMI connection for your laptop or ROKU or whatever. 4. The high speed […] internet is REALLY HIGH SPEED, and no additional charge. 5. The resort has two restaurants and a poolside bar, no need to carry cash, just charge it to your room. 6. Went to the Blue Pearl for breakfast and the food is excellent and affordably priced. 7. You can rent all kinds of recreational stuff directly from the resort. 8. You can easily walk to the beach or park from here. 9. The views are really nice. 10. The air conditioning is thermostat controlled. 11. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. 12. The room comes with 2 bathrobes you can use, so you don't have to pack your own, and it makes it faster for taking turns in the shower. 13. There is a sand area by the pool with tons of sand toys for the kids to play with. 14. Every night of the week they had a different family friendly movie that they played at the pool. They called it a "dive in" movie. ...... Now for the bad... Only one bad thing happened: My room was not totally clean when I arrived. The previous resident's swimsuit was hanging in the restroom.......... Other than that, I highly recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Dana is an incredibly over priced hotel and not at all worth the money. We booked a room immediately following our wedding for a "mini" honeymoon since we plan to go overseas for a real honeymoon in December. We were incredibly disappointed to find that the rooms are exact replicas of Motel 6 and there is nothing 3 star about it. It is also incredibly […] secluded so anything you do requires you to drive a car, which is inconvenient due to parking or pay for their shuttle service. The only pro we could find is that it is right on the bay, but all the hotel affiliated activities such as renting bikes, paddle boards, etc are severely over priced due to a lack of competition near by. You are nickel and dimed from the moment you arrive. We will never stay here again and do not recommend it unless you are fine staying on the hotel grounds throughout the duration of your stay. Do not waste your money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
WE stayed here due to its proximity to Sea World. It was actually walking distance to Sea World, and we ended up walking more than taking the hotel Sea World shuttle van, which didn't run very frequently (my only complaint). It was GREAT. We stayed in the older part but the room was clean, modern and nicely decorated. There were little special touches, […] such as nice single-serving pod coffee maker and swimsuit hangers. Plantation shutters that worked. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and provided access to the marina and a nice bike/pedestrian path that went along the bay. Two pools, both were nice, with plenty of towels and bar service available. Every staff member I enountered was smiling and greeted us pleasantly and politely. There was an unobtrusive security guard patrollingthe grounds. I had a lovely dinner at the Firefly restaurant and the Blue Pearl breakfast restaurant was good. They provide coupons to these restaurants when you check in, which helped with the cost. I would definitely recommend, I would definitely come back, and I felt safe, comfortable and very pleased with where we were staying the entire time (4 nights). a convenience store by the City marina that was close walking distance if you just had to have a snack, though the vending machines at the hotel were well-stocked and worked.

"DANA INN SAN DIEGO"
Great spot to SD bay side and Mission Beach and Belmont ParkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We only stayed one night but the front desk was kinda standoffish they weren't that interested in helping. Could have been the time of day but didn't feel welcomed! The room was nice minus the makeshift handle on the bathroom door. The kids in the room above us were kinda loud but when you stay near Sea World that's expected! I'd stay again but do things […] different when reserving! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location---Met all our Needs"
Couldn't ask for a better location---beautiful views, proximity to SeaWorld, restaurants near by. Kids loved the pool and the pool-side movies. We appreciated the convenience of the SeaWorld shuttle. Mostly we enjoyed sitting on our patio watching the sunset over the bay. The only real drawbacks were the additional fees for things that ought to be […] included.

Hotel phones out for hours when trying to inform them of late checking due to car trouble. We finally arrived and computers not working, clerk confused and checking out did not run smoothly at all. Room was tiny and outdated not worth $400.00 even though it was 50% off. The blue pearl restaurant was ok but high priced for eggs. Beds were comfy, views […] nice. The front desk staff was rude at checkout and double charged us. Will not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in a great spot. The harbor is a great place to ride bikes or take walks. The nice thing about the location is that one can park his or her car at the hotel and travel on foot or bike (highly recommend) to MB or PB and walk/ride the strip. Tons of good places to eat. All in all a great place to stay and we'll worth the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Big and classy spread-out hotel but starting to show its age a little. We will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel itself is classic. It is placed on the bay with beautiful views. They overbooked so we received a free upgrade. The service was a little slow and the buildings were hard to find because of a strange numbering system. Besides these two complaints this was a great hotel. The restaurants on site were delicious and the pool bar was awesome. They […] also have movies in the pool which is a nice added treat. Would definitely stay again!

LOVED IT! Wonderful resort with beautiful rooms and Keurig coffee machines in room. The grounds are beautiful and they showed a movie for the kids every night at one of the pools. The staff was so helpful and pleasant So relaxing. I recommend renting bikes from the hotel and check out Mission Bay, beautiful. Will stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All aspects of the hotel were top notch. We appeared to be in the middle of family wing even though we were all adults. However the Dana did upgrade our room. We really appreciated that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, but watch out for extra costs"
This is a decent hotel in a lovely location, close to a conference I was attending. The downside was there is no breakfast included, there is an additional nightly "resort fee" that covers things you either think would be included or don't need as a business traveler, and there was a daily parking charge. That really raises up the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on the bay"
it is very pretty.However, the breakfast I would go somewhere else. they were very accommodating on letting me check in early. the staff was very friendly the Firefly restaurant was really goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was small. We reserved a two Queen room with a pull out only to find out you have to pay $80( they gave it to us for $40)more at check in for that room, plus $20 for parking, and $14 resort fees. We had 3 kids plus ourselves so the smaller room wouldn't work. They view was nice, and the hotel was clean. I would go there again though, they nickel […] and dime you. Our $168 a night hotel turned into $250. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Week at the Dana"
My wife and I recently stayed 4 nights at the Dana. We had a king room with a view in the 1000 building. The property was nice and the room was nice as well. I did have a little problem with having to pay 20 dollars a day for parking which is the only definite negative with our stay there. If were to return to San Diego we would probably stay there […] again but honestly would definitely look at other possibilities prior to committing to that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel with lots to do nearby"
Upon arrival, the hotel desk clerk informed us that our room had been overbooked and we had been "upgraded" to a nicer room. Her description of the "nicer" room seemed to be less nice than our original booking that we had done 3 months prior to our arrival. After informing her of the situation she told us that we had not even booked the room that I […] requested and became very defensive when I told her that I could bring in our confirmation paper. When I stated, "I can show you our confirmation paper with exactly what we booked" she immediately snapped back with "I can show you my screen that shows you exactly what you booked". After pulling up my email and showing her the confirmation email with exactly what I said we booked she "just so happened" to find an extra room identical to what we had booked. After this she seemed very eager to get us out of the lobby and did not tell us where to park, where our room was (other than "on the 2nd floor"), or even where any restaurant or pool was on the property. After asking where these were located she sighed and very briefly explained the location to each and said "have a good night" and looked straight down to her computer. All other staff were very professional and helpful. Definitely glad the remainder of our stay improved as the first 30 minutes of check-in seemed like we were more of a hassle than a customer.
