    Extremely convenient location, extremely clean, very comfy bed, so accommodating staff. Thoroughly enjoyed that there was a sunny balcony in my room. The area was marina. Btw, there was Cleator Community Park within a walking distance of the hotel.

    The view was very nice and the location on the water.

    The service was very poor, we did not get what we paid for. Staff where not very helpful or knowable. The food was cold and we waited an hour for take out - I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    liked it right on Mission Bay with Patio that we could walk outside along the grass and bay and watch the boats, water, birds and the pool was great, as well as the restaurants. We also had kitchen in room- great for families.

    Hotel description was very misleading. Courtesy services where non existing. Hotel was not even able to provide a airport shuttle at 7:00 am, apparently that was to early for the hotel staff! Our room was dirty and uncomfortable. Room did not even have appropriate towel racks or toiletry storage. The Dana is very overpriced for the room and (non)services received.

    I liked the convenient location, the staff aside from one waiter and the available activites which are all have affordable rates such as boat jet ski and Booked.net rentals

    The blue lagoon resturaunt was over priced for the small portions

    Loved the location and the access to the pools. We were upgraded to a Poolside room upon arrival which was a big hit with our toddler!

    I like everything about the Hotel. Very beautiful room. Service was good, but the Bed was horrible. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The hotel did not have a pillow bed topper and therefore the time spent was very uncomfortable, not good rest.

    The Bed. The Bed was very hard. Could not sleep. The hotel did not have a pillow bed topper and they placed more comforters on the bed to soften it, but that did not help. We did not get a good nights sleep. We asked to be moved, but they said all the beds were the same.

    The proximity to Sea World was amazing. We were able to walk there within 15 minutes. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant on the property was affordable and delicious.
