Comfortable Classic with Great Breakfast

Thank you for the wonderful review of your time at the Marina Shores and we are so happy that you enjoyed your time with us and in Dana Point. I LOVE it when people comment that "this is an older hotel, but ..." Modern, pre-fab, steel and glass construction may have it's place, but cookie-cutter hotels are so impersonal and boring. Our area of the beach community is very historic and it's an honor to be a part of that design and feeling that keeps Dan Point from turning into a tourist trap. Awesome observation and thank you again.

Thank you for the great review and Bobby sends his best. I'm so glad you mentioned the "locals" aspect because that's something often missed in reviews. Hotels everywhere are inundated with promotional offers from local restaurants and shops - recommend us to your guests and we'll give your staff great discounts - kind of a "you scratch our back and we'll scratch yours" thing. At the Marina Shores, we'd rather make the best referrals we can so we simply ask "what are you in the mood for?" and go from there. We know the dives with the best barbecue, we know where the locals go when they want the best seafood, steaks or foreign cuisines and we would rather send you someplace where you'll come back happy (and full!) than someplace that will give us 50% off because we dropped their name. I'll take this opportunity to remind all travelers that a hotel is not just a place to stay while you're in town. It is literally a base of operations while you plan out your activities, so knowing that the staff has your best interests and comfort at heart is a big plus. Referrals for dining and sightseeing can make or break a vacation. Business travelers looking for a brief respite from work need to know they can count on the recommendations made by the staff - your time is valuable and we will always do our best to make sure you enjoy ALL aspects of your stay, even the ones that take place away from the Marina Shores Hotel!

Diane asked me to pass along her gratitude for the recognition you gave her. She has been a front desk attendant at the Marina Shores longer than anyone else and for an obvious reason. We are proud of her and appreciate that you not only felt the warmth and welcoming spirit she provides, but that same spirit throughout the staff. We're glad that you enjoyed your time with us and look forward to the next time you "come home."

Value for Money

Thank you for the nice review and we are happy you enjoyed most aspects of your stay at the Marina Shores Hotel. The free breakfast will always be a challenge for hotels like ours that doesn't have a full service restaurant. We do rotate our menu every day to try and provide some variety and frequently try new products so we can offer the best that is available. Breakfast will always be a "work in progress."
