The Dana Point resorts are certainly among the top lodging options, and if it’s well-appointed rooms and extensive facilities that you want, they are the way to go. The two most luxurious Dana Point resorts are found in the community of Monarch Beach, which is part of Dana Point. The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and the St. Regis Resort are really the only hotels in Monarch Beach, and are they ever impressive. Your search for Dana Point resorts doesn’t have to end there, however. Should the Ritz Carlton or the St. Regis be a bit out of your price range, the Marriott Laguna Cliffs Resort and Spa offers a luxury experience at a more friendly price. One of the more impressive beach hotels in Dana Point, the Laguna Cliffs Resort overlooks the sand from its bluff-top perch. In addition to being able to walk to the beach, those staying at the Laguna Cliffs Resort can also walk to a nearby park or the Dana Point harbor, where boat trips to Catalina can be arranged. The rooms and suites here are hardly a big step down from those at the more expensive Dana Point resorts, and among the amenities that you can expect are feather-top beds, complimentary bathrobes, an in-room safe, cable TV, a work desk, and a CD player. All the basics, such as a coffee maker, a hair dryer, and an iron are also part of the deal. Among the facilities at the Laguna Cliffs Resort are a deluxe spa, an upscale restaurant, heated pools, and wedding and meeting venues.
Priced in the general vicinity of the Laguna Cliffs Resort and Spa, the Doubletree Guest Suites Doheny Beach is another excellent choice for those looking to book a stay at one of the beach hotels in Dana Point. In addition to having Doheny Beach in front of you, you’ll also have the beach towns of Laguna Beach and San Clemente not far off on either side, so there’s plenty to explore during your stay. An all suites hotel, the Doubletree offers spacious rooms that are akin to those at Laguna Cliffs when it comes to decor and amenities. Should the Doubletree Guest Suites still be a bit more expensive than what you had in mind, the mid-priced Dana Point hotels offer some pretty great rooms at an even lower price. Among the best mid-priced choices are the Best Western Dana Point Inn By The Sea and the Holiday Inn Express Dana Point Harbor Doheny Beach. You can hardly argue with how far your money goes at these beach hotels in Dana Point. The spacious rooms at both establishments offer enough in the way of luxury to impress most visitors, and with amenities like satellite TV, air conditioning, a fridge, internet access, and a complimentary continental breakfast included in the rates, you should find that you’ll have everything that you will need to enjoy a pleasant stay.
A couple of smaller and more basic inns also find themselves among the choices when it comes to the Dana Point hotels, so you can consider those if you are still looking to pay less per night. One of the better discount Dana Point hotels is the Dana Point Harbor Inn, which offers both rooms and suites. While not terribly attractive, the rooms and suites at the Dana Point Harbor Inn are clean and comfortable nonetheless. A continental breakfast is included in the rates at both establishments, which helps to make the price even more agreeable. If you still can’t make up your mind about where to stay after considering the Dana Point Harbor Inn and the other top hotels in Dana Point, you can always look to the vacation rentals that are found in the area. From beach apartments to larger homes, the Dana Point vacation rentals are varied, so you are likely to find one that more than fits your needs. You might also look to the nearby Capistrano Beach hotels, or perhaps you’ll prefer setting up camp at one of the area campgrounds.
