We selected the Del Mar Motel on the Beach to celebrate our 25th anniversary. It couldn't have been more perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the room was roomy and very clean. The beach is literally at the edge of the property. We had the south side, beach-end room on the second floor. It has a perfect... More

We have stayed here a couple of times. We always reserve one of the rooms in the back with the oceanfront view. It is nothing fancy, but it is the only place you vpcan stay right on the beach in del Mar. We love the beach and the park that is just a few steps up the street. Walking distance... More

Needed a few days of "beach time" & didn't want to travel far. This was absolutely perfect. Right on a beautiful beach, next door to Poseidon Restaurant & within a short walk of downtown Del Mar...nothing more to ask for. The room was well appointed, clean...didn't lack anything. The motel had a front patio to relax & enjoy the view... More

My husband and I have been staying here for over 30 years! Best location on the beach. Great staff always helpful. Very clean rooms! We come down at least 3 times a year. Used to bring the kids and lived it as a family. We now come alone and love it even more as a romantic getaway. Carmelo and George... More

An unexpected beach getaway so close to home. Sand was like powder, water clean, room and grounds immaculate, staff more than accommodating! Only Motel on the beach in the area. Barbecues, picnic tables, outdoor shower. Lots of places to eat within walking distance! We will return!

My wife and I stayed at this motel, the room was clean and looked to be recently updated. The motel staff had turned the room air conditioning down for us so our room was very cool after the 6 hour drive from Arizona. The beach in front of the motel was clean and very open and located next to a... More

Cute beachy hotel. Right on the water, with chase lounges protected by a glass wall. No blowing sand. Front desk person was friendly and helpful. Rooms very spacious, love the new floor in our room! I would recommend this place and will return often!

We booked the Del Mar Motel based on my sister's recommendation, who is a local. We were not disappointed! It is what it is - a beach motel. The location is perfect and the restaurants near by and next door are very good. We took advantage of having a barbecue at sunset and their facilities were perfect. It was also... More

The best part of this hotel is LOCATION right off the Del Mar Beach, but good things do not end there. Walking distance to the main street (camino ) to get ice cream, Starbucks coffee, restaurants or our favorite place called Seagrove Park to see the sunset. Also located right next to the life guard HQ building, so when we... More

Nice older style property on the Beach. Clean , good to see an older place that has been keep up and location on the beach is sweet. Would definitely stay again. Rooms Closer to ocean are nicer in terms of noise. Walking to Del Mar center is easy in car crazy Cali.
