The people here weren't very friendly. The room was mildly funky, I suppose, but I find it difficult to accept stained shower curtains, cracked windows, cheap plastic blinds and stained chairs as cool... Although the room had a microwave, small fridge and sink, there was no crockery and no cutlery. In every other motel we stayed in (all of which... More

This place was an unexpected surprise. It was actually nicer than the photos even showed. The room was supposed to have an ocean view and did have a clear ocean view and a patio to be able to see it from with chairs and a table as well. The room was quiet in the evening and in the morning with... More

My husband booked this hotel for a little get away for our 35th wedding anniversary. Normally we stay at Comfort Inns. This place is no Comfort Inn. It is far to quirky for that, but it really is great. We stayed in the Gauguin room. While I don't really love the work of Gauguin, I did love our room. It... More

We've stayed in Del Mar several times, in both hotels and vacation rentals, but never noticed this place, hidden in plain sight on the main street. We needed a place for one night to avoid driving home after an event. I wanted it to be something special (since it was also our anniversary), but didn't necessarily need oceanfront or luxury...

Reserved a room last minute for a night out with hubby. Paid just under $200 for a king room with ocean view (I think I paid to be in Del Mar...). First impression was lacking. The parking lot is partly gravel with a big storage container in the middle of it. Check in was easy - old school. I have... More

I stayed in this Motel seven nights. The staff were quite friendly. Nice rooms, not too big though. The walls are rather thin so the place may become a little noisy at times. I like the proximity to the ocean, the sound of the surf at night is very nice. WIFI is free pretty and fast except for peak usage... More

I stayed in the Zen room which was like a room in a family run ryokan in Japan. Cabinetry and exposed wood in the room were Japanese, several tree trunks peeled to expose the wood were incorporated into the structure. Art, pottery, sculpture, flooring all consistent. A water feature in the tiny private garden behind and the larger patio in... More

What a unique place!! Stayed here last weekend in the Van Gogh room. Very clean and quiet. My son loved it and is still talking about this hotel and he's 3!! In the morning they had coffee and cookies with a warm fire to enjoy in the lobby. Walking distance to all restaurants. Will be back!!!

Stayed in the penthouse adjacent to the inn. A bit like having your own apt at the beach in Del Mar. While not for everyone, particularly those who want a large standard hotel or 4 star service, this is a nice alternative near the heart of San Diego. Just adjacent to a cafe on the main drag in Del Mar,... More

It's not easy to sum up a place that's hand-designed to the tiniest tile detail. But the soothing trickles of water from various fountains and the smells of woodsmoke and ocean breeze make it all lovely. The proprietess - a former architect - has plenty of memorable stories to go along with every item found at the inn.
