Sher Fuller, Dana Point

We have five hotels and motels within a half mile. Putting yet another hotel at the corner of Del Obispo Street and Pacific Coast Highway at the busiest intersection in town doesn’t make sense.

The residents of Dana Point need a city council that is looking out for its residents, not the vision of added tax revenue. Dana Point isn’t Newport Beach. We don’t want to be Newport Beach. It will be a traffic nightmare. Just say “No.”

  • First off, it’s not another hotel…it’s a tear down of an old hotel and an abandoned liquor store. Get your facts strait. Secondly, since there is an existing hotel you need to look at the net number of additional rooms. Lastly, that corner is a dump. Let the developer build what they see fit based on city guidelines and demand. Would be cool if they brought back that taco cart though…

    • Love it Dan, right on.

    • Dan, First, it’s straight, not “strait.” I agree that the corner of PCH and Del Obispo needs a clean up. What I don’t agree on is putting a 4 or 5 story hotel at that corner, aren’t there height restrictions in place? In addition, besides the 5 hotels/motels I mentioned earlier, there are another two huge hotels in north Dana Point with hundreds of hotel rooms, (St. Regis and the Ritz Carlton).

      Putting a multi-story hotel on that corner is not the answer to getting it cleaned up, there are a myriad of businesses that would enhance the community, use your imagination. Let a developer choose what goes on that corner? GET REAL. There is no demand for additional hotels in Dana Point, where do you get your information?

  • No doubt the corner is an embarrassment to the city. But, we do not need a 5 story 4 star hotel. 2 story we can live with.
