Dana Point Hotel Guide

Including Capistrano Beach Hotels

To find a Dana Point hotel, check this guide for addresses and any distinguishing features or amenities.

Several are along Pacific Coast Highway in Capistrano Beach, just south of the harbor. Though they face the ocean, there may be a lot of traffic noise from the highway to consider. See also this list of resorts.

The Blue Lantern Inn Dana Point
34343 Street of the Blue Lantern
This a bed and breakfast hotel located high above Dana Point Harbor at the north end.

Like many bed and breakfasts, they provide not only a complimentary full breakfast, but tea, wine and hors d'oevres in the afternoon. Other amenities include bikes to ride, a fitness room, and various spa treatments for a fee. Some rooms have gas fireplaces.

Tower rooms have private decks with ocean views. Pacific Edge rooms have partial ocean views from private balcony or patio. Harbor View rooms have partial Dana Point Harbor views. City View rooms cost the least, as there is no harbor or ocean view.

Cannon's Restaurant is right next door. Call the inn ahead of time to see if there will be loud music coming from an event there, if that would bother you.
