The Dana on Mission Bay, San Diego
Beautiful setting and room, but lacking in comfort
Beautiful setting and well appointed room. Thermostat set on temperature control in spite of the appearance of remote control ( it is locked). So even with all doors and windows open, we were too hot to sleep. Beds are pretty but not comfortable. Grounds are meticulously kept ( perfect for a wedding) which made me noxious about walking my dogs. Additionally, the room was advertised at one price, but by the time ok the taxes were added on, parking fee and pet fee, the room cost us 1.5 times what we thought we were paying. We are not the right clientele for this hotel.

Restaurant waiter soured trip
Poor attitude by our assigned waiter for breakfast Monday morning prior to departure for Sea World; he needs an attitude adjustment -- perhaps he can learn from the 'omlette guy'!!

Family fun!
Beautiful resort and great staff! Loved the happy hour options! Rooms were very clean. Easy access to the marina and rental equipments. Only downfall was the air conditioner was pretty loud.

Great room, view and friendly staff
Stayed overnight for my anniversary with my husband and we both loved our stay! The location is so perfect, the room was very comfy and clean. Only downsides we’re the parking(not enough and VERY tight spots) and the food onsite was very expensive..we ate at a different restaurant. We didn’t use any of the amenities that are included with the “resort fee” but may would have if we would have stayed longer. The people next door to us we’re partying past 1am, so I called the front desk and they said they would have a guard go check on them and within 5 minutes it was quiet and I was able to sleep peacefully. Service was great, friendly staff! Would definitely stay here again!

Pretty- very family friendly
Very pretty location and grounds. Nice rooms. We paid more for a room with a lanai and that was definitely worth it- we enjoyed the extra space to play cards and have wine in the evening. Downside: there were tons of kids and dogs. I should have figured that close to Sea World in June that would be the case. It was a little noisy.
