The Blue Lantern sits in a beautiful spot overlooking the Dana Point harbor. It is attractive and in great shape. Rooms are spacious and in very good shape, if not the high end of luxury. People were very nice, and there is a good friendly vibe from a lot of people hanging

Beautiful setting on a bluff overlooking the harbor and Pacific Ocean at very fair rates. It's super clean and welcoming- the staff is always ready to meet your every need. Comfortable rooms, scrumptious breakfasts and late afternoon wine tastings. Easy walk to good local

Beautiful boutique hotel, 4 post beds, quant, great views, expensive, nice staff, small rooms. When we were there the gazebo was fenced off, not sure why. Quiet and relaxing with great hilltop ocean views.

We spent three nights at the Blue Lantern for the experience while we explored Dana Point. It lived up to expectations. That said, we have only visited Laguna Beach for the art festival and stopping while passing through from one place to another. I would suggest that you look for a similar place to Blue Lantern in LB, or amend your sightseeing and spend a little time in DP and a day trip or two to LB.

Hi Traveler, Our pet friendly guestroom is a Pacific Edge guestroom located on the ground floor of the inn. The guestroom features a king bed and it does have steps leading into it and a limited view which should be taken into consideration when making a reservation. It is advisable to book this guestroom well in advance as availability can be limited. You can find further details of our pet friendly policy on our website or by telephoning the inn directly (800) 950-1236. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

"3rd floor for a better view and no footsteps from the flor above"
"First floor rooms are well in earshot of the main lobby and dining/sitting area."
"Well worth paying extra to get a room on the top floor overlooking the harbour & ocean"
"Ocean and harbor view rooms are comfortable and spacious"
"We like floor 2&3 rooms in the tower. They have great views, a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates."
