Not the best, but not the worst...

The rooms could use a remodel...smelled musty. Very dark as well, not a lot of light. The carpets needed either a good cleaning or to be replaced! Unless you drive a compact car, parking is very, v... more

Not the worst, but pushing very hard to get better! Now that the majority of the tourist season in over, all the hotels in the area are gearing up for their off-season, deep cleaning projects and the Marina Shores is no exception. We will be systematically breaking down each guest room, steam cleaning all the carpets, painting walls and trim - anything that needs to be done that we couldn't address when running at full capacity. Please accept my apologies that we weren't looking our best while you stayed with us. It was a long and very busy summer at the beach.

Loved It!

We are sincerely sorry for your disappointment with the Marina Shores Hotel. When the hotel was renovated just six years ago, the idea was to stay true to the older, historic design that represents Dana Point so the dark woods and the rustic colors were part of the overall plan. I fully understand that tastes vary ... some think our hotel is beautiful and others don't. The important thing is that travelers know what they like so I encourage everyone to compare online photos and descriptions of any hotels they are considering before making a choice.
