We had a suite on the corner and it was just perfect. The boats were seen out the side window and were fun to watch. The Mission Bay was out the back patio and was beautiful. Their was a patio on the side that was walled in for privacy and it had sun all day.

My husband and I spent four days at The Dana on Mission Bay. We really enjoyed the walking trails around the bay and the Marina. Our nicely appointed room overlooked the bay and it was lovely to wake up to the serenity of the water. We were very pleased with our location on the resort; Building 2000 was nice and...

Stayed at the hotel for 7 nights with my wife and 10-month old son. Had a casual holiday - as you do with infants I guess! THe staff was very friendly and accommodating. THe room was nice and large, and the bed (king size) was one of the most comfortable I've slept on in hotels! The hotle is very conveniently...

Very convenient hotel where you have easy access to freeways and beaches. Comfortable view right by the bay/marina where you can easily enjoy the sights of San Diego. Pool area makes you feel like you are really on vacation. I highly recommend the Dana.

Enjoyed staying! Rooms are nice. Thank you to Yolanda for such a nice clean room! Close to sea world, whale watching tour, and you can rent kayaks, jetskis and other water toys! Right on the bay. Nice patio in deluxe suite to just sit and relax. Close to Belmont Park and the ocean boardwalk. Good value and affordable.

Location on and view of the bay is pleasant, especially since you can also enjoy it from the Firefly restaurant. There are two pools and the kids are concentrated at one, so the other one is heated, very nice and quiet for sunbathing or swimming. There is not a lot of shopping in the immediate area to walk to, but...

The Dana Hotel on Mission Bay is a tropical paradise in a great location. The pools & pathways are pretty & peaceful, & the marina is a nice part of a walk on the grounds. The patio of the Firefly Restaurant & Bar is stunning with nice lighting & fire pits to sit by & have a drink or dinner....

The room was nicely furnished and clean. I really like having a mini-fridge, coffee pot and hair dryer in the room. Basic stuff, but necessities that were clean and new looking. They didn't look wore out, old or disgustingly dirty as I have seen in other hotels. Staff was friendly. Room was on the courtyard side. Courtyard is beautiful. I...

Great hotel. We upgraded to a second story balcony room overlooking the bay. Loved feeding the sea gulls from my balcony. They would fly up and catch the morsels in the air. The bay has a great walkway/path for biking, running, etc., for a nice 5 mile stroll. Really good location. Short drive to gas lamp, seaport village, etc

Hotel was surprisingly quiet given the heated pools, fire pit tables & heaters etc available, so would def recommend as a year round location. All the staff were very friendly, but particular mention has to go to Paul at the pool bar. Full of great recommendations, attentive service and great humor. The hotel really needs a second inside bar or...
