Excellent Hotel stay and staff!!

A TripAdvisor Member (Temecula, California) on Sep 19, 2023

The room was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and so were the pillows. The chicken Caesar salad was fantastic! Cheesecake is good too! Lovely place to stay. Came for a convention for several days and it was a great stay. Thank you!!

Believe the Poor Reviews—Because They Ate TRUE!

A2986YNericp (St Martin / St Maarten) on Sep 17, 2023

Believe the critical reviews. Over $300/night for a poor-condition motel room. (Not an exaggeration, this was a motel room.). Noisy, smelly, worn, shocking at this price. $4 coffee in the morning. Expensive limited and poor buffet breakfast no-one was buying. They only clean the rooms three times per week. Confused staff told us the bar was open until 1 am so we had 20 people come over after an event. Closed hours before then. Friends walked into their room, turned around and moved to the hotel across the street. Oh, did I say over $300?

Dated hotel. Overpriced.

Melanie B (Moses Lake, Washington) on Sep 13, 2023

The hotel is dated and doesn't feel fresh. The carpeting is old. I've been here twice for conferences, and both times, the a/c unit is in the sink/bath area, which means it's blowing cold air on you as you use the sink. That's uncomfortable. The walls are thin. Considering the price, it's overpriced. It's ok for a business trip, but I wouldn't recommend for personal travel. It's not up to what I would consider as a resort. The staff is awesome though!

Staycation at The Dana on Mission Bay

Explore08628291305 on Sep 12, 2023

What an awesome experience! My family and I decided to have a staycation for Labor Day and chose to stay at one of our favorite spots at the beach...The Dana, and once again it did not disappoint! The place, the people and the location are one of the best in San Diego. Patrick and his staff are true professionals! Janessa is great at her job and is there when you need anything. Don't waste you time looking any further...this is the spot!

This place is reminiscent of a no-tell motel of the '60s! The walls so thin you could hear the guest next door unrolling toilet paper. The tile in the front entry of the room isv# badly chipped and scarred. The decorations are from the 60's. The. Air conditioner are extreme old. Seriously box A/Cs??? All for over $400.00 per night! We did not stay the entire night. Could not stand it anymore... Did I mention the carpets??? No because they were too disgusting for all readers to withstand.
