The Story of Dana Point Marina Inn

Learn More About the Beachfront Hotel Hosting Your SoCal Adventure

Dana Point Marina Inn is the only hotel on the Dana Point Harbor. Our exclusive location makes us a top choice among leisure travelers, groups, boaters and just about anyone who wants to soak up the laid back harbor scene.

The Gem of Dana Point

Richard Henry Dana Jr. called Dana Point, “the most romantic spot in California”. From Doheny State Beach to Dana Point Harbor to the cliffs of the Headlands Conservation Trail, our beach town is full of stunning views and treasures that are sure to make for great memories. 

Dana Point Marina Inn has been part of the community since the County of Orange asked Paul Goodman and his family to build and operate and our 136-room hotel after the development of Dana Point Harbor in 1971.

Known as the Whale Capital of the West, you’re just about guaranteed to see blowhole bursts dotting the horizon throughout the season. The Beach Boys famously serenaded the scene in our town, as visitors have enjoyed sport fishing, sailing, watersports and more, for decades. Along with the surf, take in the turf of the town, on Pacific Coast Highway and Baby Beach just a stroll away.

Without a doubt, Dana Point’s true colors are shown best year around. Come play and stay at Dana Point Marina Inn and take in the rich history of our little piece of the Pacific coastline.
