Location is near the freeway, so certain rooms may hear some current construction noise, but the bigger issue are the train whistles if you room faces the ocean. Staff was great, breakfast so-so, rooms very good. Would stay here again and recommend to friends if the price was reasonable. They charge for parking, but at least no resort fee.

I've gotten used to Marriott properties being clinically generic so that once you're in the front door you don't know if you're in Miami, Memphis or Modesto - so I was surprised and delighted to find the decor of this hotel echoes the old California ranch style which are the roots of San Juan Capistrano. Artwork and colors inspired by... More

Nice Residence Inn in the midst of a shopping area and just a mile or two from the beach. Hotel is very nice inside and rooms are big, have a kitchen and are very clean. Unfortunately the hotel charges for parking, $12 per night. I was a little surprised they charged for parking. Actually when I said I was surprised... More

This hotel was a great place to stay to visit our son at camp Pendleton. Close to the beach and close to Capistrano. Rooms are large with kitchens. Breakfast is very good with lots of choices. Close to many good restaurants.

Residence Inn is one of those extended stay places that has a full kitchen, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, dishes and silverware in each room. Room seemed very new with King Bed, sofabed and a very nice shower (all glass standup design).

We closed our week off in The Residence Inn at Dana Point. A relative new hotel with larger rooms. Good service and good quality hotel. Only downside is the very busy road next to the hotel. Rooms at front/road side of the hotel are relatively noisy. Good hotel for extended stay purposes.
