The room I stayed in was extremely outdated. I was told I was upgraded but the room was infested with gnats, the ajoining door was paper thin and the guests staying in the ajoining door you could hear talking all night. The room overlooked the kiddie pool which held a very loud family movie at 8pm. The AC unit was...

The Dana on Mission Bay is a clutch of modest but well-maintained 60's-style motel structures sprinkled on a crescent of land fronting a small marina. The property is lavishly landscaped with palms, banana trees, melaleucas, riots of geraniums, birds of paradise and various other tropical and sub-tropical foliage. It's all beautifully manicured, which works to conceal the plain-as-peas structures and...

We stayed here for 6 nights. Couple with a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old. Overall stay was good and we had a good vacation. On check-in we were told there was no sand-play area as was shown on website when I did the booking. The pool was ok and so was jacuzzi. There were some dead bugs...

We had a pleasant experience at The Dana. The room was big. Although not especially fancy, it had a nice beachy, airy feel to it. Both pools were really nice, and if you had a familiar the Tropical pool plays movies on a poolside screen in the evenings. The restaurant was great, especially being able to hang out and have...

This was our second visit to The Dana. Our visit was too short, just a weekend stay. First, our room was clean and comfortable. I especially enjoyed The bed. Although, it was unusually high off The ground. The food was delicious, and surprisingly affordable. Great customer service alongside a delightfully mellow atmosphere.

Room was great, great view of the bay. Easy in and out with vehicle. Our first time there. Next time we'll see if there's a room looking towards sea world might be able to see the fireworks? Mission beach park n boardwalk within walking distance

We have stayed at the resort down the road for 7 days over New Years and it was super expensive and the service and rooms were not good, clean or anything over the top. We decided to try The Dana On Mission Bay and it was by far better all the way around. The staff was very friendly, the rooms...

The hotel grounds are beautiful. There are 2 heated pools and hot tubs on the property. We were able to walk on paths all around Mission Bay. You can also rent bikes and pedal boats, etc. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The location was easily accessible to public transportation, in addition to transportation from the hotel to Sea...

The choice of hotel and locale for our USS Cook reunion was superb. Hotel staff service and the facility itself was outstanding. I look forward to the next opportunity to stay at this hotel again. San Diego has always held a warm place in my heart, and The Dana on Mission Bay is now a warm part of that experience.
