The Jacuzzi tub is amazing big enough for a tall athletic couple 6’3& 5’10. It’s definitely the perfect get away for a couple for the cost . It’s located near the heart of Dana point with many local restaurants around. I recommend Lupes, great drinks and food.

Hotel's Favourite
Hotel is clean and staff fabulous. The room was very nice, the only oddity was the shower. It was up a high step to step into the jacuzzi tub. I was so happy to find this hotel that was so affordable to celebrate our anniversary. Small charge for parking. Across the street from Dana Point Beach and several restaurants. Great location!

Response from Peter Callan, Owner at Best Western Plus Marina Shores Hotel
Responded 10 Apr 2021
Thank you for the great review and the high rating. It's wonderful to know that even while we're all dealing with the restrictions and stresses associated with the pandemic, our staff can still deliver the service you come to expect. Yes, there is a bit of a "step up" to get into our jetted tubs. As you may have noticed, they're deeper than the standard bathtub and since we couldn't drop them below the floor, the only way to go was up (smiling)! Come see us again soon!

Spent one night here but wished we could stay longer. The rooms are clean and modern, the hotel staff very pleasant and the location is very walkable. I know it's not on the harbor but its so very close and it's certainly a quick stroll to the harbor or to restaurants. I highly recommend this lovely property when staying in Dana Point. And the prices were reasonable and they accept dogs!!

This hotel is perfect for the person who plans to explore South Orange county. It is near the Dana Point harbor and 10 minutes from Old town San Juan Capistrano. It isn't fancy, but it is clean and very well maintained. We like it so much that this was our 3rd visit in a 6-month period. We were convenient to Mission Viejo, Laguna Beach, Irvine and San Clemente. We consider this Best Western a wonderful discovery.

The hotel is OK the staff is horrible Clean ladies were fine but everybody else was extremely rude. They tried to charge me for a mask even though it stated they had free masks available. My daughter only forgot her mask not as if we dint wear then and the front desk treated her like she forgot her mask just to upset them . Will never stay here again if any Bestwestern.

Mr. Cotrell, Since you were unwilling to accept my apology when I responded to your Best Western survey, I don't expect to fare any better here. Yes, we do offer one free mask to each guest who doesn't have one. We do this as a courtesy because many travelers are from out of state and are unaware of California's indoor masking mandate. Once we give them the mask, it is the guest's responsibility to remember to wear it. Again, if any staff member came across as rude, I am sincerely sorry. While we need to be firm in supporting the mandate, I understand that enforcement can sometimes come across as heavy handed and I regret that we gave you that impression.
