Nice place to stay!

28/05/2018 Cheryl M,

Don’t let the “Best Western” name scare you away. This is a great place to stay in Dana Point. It is very clean and the rooms are nice. Numerous places to eat are right across the street. Every staff ... more

Owner Response
Peter C, General Manager at Best Western Plus Marina Shores Hotel, responded to this review
We're thrilled that you were so happy with your stay at the Marina Shores, but I'll admit that the "don't let the Best Western name scare you away" item kinda threw me. Once upon a time, there was a new hotel brand that pioneered the idea of networking hotels rather than franchising them. Unlike franchises that are mostly cookie-cutter, no personality properties, this network of hotels formed a membership where they all referred guests to one and other, but each hotel was unique ... combining the best qualities of independent hotels with the marketing and purchasing power of the big franchises. This was the concept that created Best Western. As the years passed and the family of hotels grew, there became a huge inconsistency from one hotel to the next ... one could be a budget, no frills property along the highway and another could be a luxury, full service hotel in the heart of metropolitan America. Travelers became confused because they didn't know what to expect from one Best Western to the next. In 2011, Best Western created three separate tiers - Best Western, Best Western Plus and Best Western Premier - in an attempt to clarify for all travelers the level of service, quality and amenities they could expect during their stay. I promise you, "Best Western" is not a name to be scared of (smiling). We're glad you were pleasantly surprised by the Marina Shores in Dana Point and hope you will remember your experience here and book with our brand, wherever your travels may take you.

Not bad.

We stayed for 5 nights and everything was perfect except the room smelled a bit funky, like dog or musty or something but it appeared very clean. I can't say enough about how nice the staff treats the... more


Decent hotel for the money

21/04/2018 frankie9222,

Great staff amenities were lacking. Would give the hotel another chance because of the staff. The pool wasn't available during our stay which was a letdown. Every question I had was answered by the st... more
