We have been to the Blue Lantern three or four times in the last five years. It is a piece of heaven with an amazing view of the Dana Point Harbor. Sunrise the lights play across the water - it is a photgrapher's joy. The rooms are amazing, the staff is incredibly responsive. We actually stay here when we go... More

One of the prettiest views you can get! The hotel was very quiet. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the wine and appetizers, and the breakfast was really good too. We would definitely stay there again!

My daughter stayed here for a night before and two nights after her wedding (at the Dana Point Chart House). It is absolutely lovely and a romantic hotel you will want to stay at again. She had a suite on the first floor. Normally first floor rooms are not private. Not the case with hers. It had a beautiful bathroom... More

I was attending a conference held in Dana Point and had to find alternate lodging since the event hotel down the street was completely booked. I was bummed since the original hotel was was supposedly 1st class. In the end, I was fortunate that the other hotel WAS unavailable because otherwise, I never would have stumbled onto the Blue Lantern.... More

This Inn is truly a Pacific coast gem! My wife and I have been staying here since 2007, about three or four time per year. Perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean, one is continuously awed by the commanding views of the sea, Dana Point Marina and sailing ships docked at the Ocean Institute directly below the Inn and while...

We were gifted a stay at the Blue Lantern Inn and absolutely loved our time there. The room was large, clean and beautifully decorated.
