More About Dana Point, CA Hotels...

What budget hotels are available?

Rodeway Inn San Clemente Beach offers a free breakfast every morning, as well as free parking and Wi-Fi, all for around $90 a night. Located just south of Dana Point, this is the cheapest hotel in the general area, and certainly worth the savings for those looking to visit the southern parts of the city. However, if you want to stay in the heart of Dana Point, the cheapest option is DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Doheny Beach, a resort close to Doheny State Park, the harbor, and many shops and restaurants. A one king bed suite is $169.

What are the luxury hotels like in Dana Point?

Farther up the coast are the greatest luxury hotels, like The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Although named for Laguna Niguel, it's a short drive to Dana Point. The resort cuts no corners, and the $629 price reflects this. However, staying at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel will put you close to the Monarch Bay Golf Club. Guests also get preferred tee times. Further inland is the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, a similarly priced hotel that is better for nature buffs, as it is close to multiple state parks.

Are Airbnbs available?

Dana Point hotels run a wide gambit, but the Airbnbs are a happy medium of comfort and savings, if you don't mind staying a little north in Laguna Beach or Laguna Niguel. From stylish condos to beautiful balcony views with the serenity of a home environment, there are multiple offerings around or under $100.
