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.

This hotel is clean and roomy. The staff are friendly and attentive. However, nothing can overcome the trains that run next to the property. The first trains came through sat 5:13 AM one day and 5:48 AM the next day. They sound their horns when approaching the hotel, and even the heaviest sleepers will be awakened. An incredibly poor choice...

We were booked for 2 nights.We were told that we were on the view side of the property, i.e. looking over the costco to see the sea and some palm trees. However the clerk failed to mention that the railroad runs right next to that side of the property. The trains started approx 5.45 am and the last toot I...

This hotel has a great location and full hot breakfast. This property is pet friendly and easy access off I-5. I love that it has a full kitchen with an Albertsons down the street.

When I first got off of the exit for this hotel, I was a little hesitant, old part of town and didn't look like much in the area. Wasn't sure I was gonna stay there?

This was a great hotel close to many areas of Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano. We were in town for 5 nights for a family reunion, and this hotel was easy to get in and out of for both DP and SJC. The only negative we experienced was getting in late to find the main parking lot full so...

My associates and I recently attended a business luncheon meeting here and had an opportunity to tour the property. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and have an ocean view.

I stay in Residence Inns often, and this one was fine. The rooms were very clean and the bedrooms were spacious. The living room/kitchen was fine, but not quite as "homey" as most of the "R I" hotels I have stayed in. This would be an excellent hotel for someone in the area on business. The location is very convenient...
