Certificate of Excellence
A waterfront resort enveloped by tropical landscaping, The Dana on Mission Bay delivers an exceptional lodging experience in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Rest comfortably in a well-appointed guestroom or two-room suite overlooking Mission Bay. Delight in such quality amenities as two outdoor, heated swimming pools, fitness center, private marina, and watersport and bicycle rentals on site. Our location is both family- and business-friendly. The Dana on Mission Bay is less than one mile to Mission Beach and Belmont Park. We're the closest hotel to SeaWorld San Diego and a short drive to the San Diego Zoo. And the San Diego Convention Center is equally convenient. In short, the only thing we overlook is the bay.

Enjoyed out time at Dana on Mission Bay. It was a great location as it provided easy access to Old Town, Sea World, the zoo and the beaches. Nothing was hard to get to or too far a drive. We saved on parking as Sea World is an easy walk from the hotel. We stayed in the older

We came from cold Saskatchewan Canada, We were so happy to see the trees and green grass so nicely manicured! The pool and hot tub were marvellous! We were upgraded to a suite with a outdoor patio which we appreciated so much! You can hear the people above you moving around and

There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. If you want groceries, I would recommend using a delivery service like Amazon Prime Now or Instacart

If you have car, you can get to some of the places you ask about, walking would be far. We didn't see supermarket in Mission Bay, but likely it is somewhere. Perhaps you can call or email them to find out your answers?!
