Stayed here for the last 2 nights of our honeymoon, wanting something different with a bit of extra comfort. This place was the most expensive motel we stayed in so we were expecting great things. However, it was probably the worst hotel we had for the whole trip. I could see what they were trying to do with the different... More

Tried numerous times to book a weekend, and kept getting the run around. Seems this hotel is not in the business to book rooms, or know anything about customer service. The "Asian" lady argued with me on the phone insisting it was my fault she couldn't book, as well as told me I should look somewhere else for a room.... More

My husband and I had plans to stay at Les Artistes for a Saturday night getaway. A few days before our trip, however, our dog was viciously attacked by another dog and we could not board her as planned. When I tried to call the hotel to see if they could work with me to reschedule for another night, I... More

People have either loved or hated this hotel-there are not many in between. I think that is telling. Not to dis the 'haters' but you really have to know what kind of person you are before you stay some place like this. It's not the Hilton or Motel 6. If that is your expectation you will be disappointed. It is... More

We spent two nights at Les Artistes in January, 2014. It's not a bad place, but it's not wonderful, either. They decorated each room in the style of a different artist but the place needs a makeover - it's getting a bit old. No major complaints - the room was okay but could have used a good cleaning - much... More

We recently spent New Year's Eve and the night after at Les Artistes in the De Lempicka room. Its a corner unit on the bottom floor with a small ocean view and outside seating. The rooms are individually decorated and named after different artists. The exterior is also artistically done by the owners. It's a unique place and probably not... More

We stayed at les Artistes for 1 night (after a fun day at Del Mar Race Track) and wished we had stayed longer. It's cute, relaxing and very unique. There were 3 couples and we all had quite different rooms that were decorated and based on specific artists. Relaxing courtyard area with coffee/fruit in the am, magazines and books and... More

Each room is showing a different artist and is unquie place to stay. Very relaxing and kind of reminded us of being in Hawaii for far less money. Beats staying at other places like Holiday Inn and free parking and wi-fi. We will be back.

The staff is clueless, and some crazy lady with an accent is absolutely useless. Booking was a nightmare and forget trying to make any special requests or changes. There are so many lovely hotels in Del Mar, why stay here?
