The location can't be beat - right on the beach! Our room was clean, but only had a shower (no bathtub). Took us awhile to crack the secret touch to getting the right temperature of water in the shower. The motel is right next to a very busy restaurant - it's expensive so we didn't eat there, But there is... More

This hotel is on the beach, right on the beach. Only fish get closer to the ocean and this hotel is a fabulous way to enjoy Del Mar. If you enjoy the ocean and close proximity to excellent restaurants this is the place to be. We have been staying there annually for a week since 1990 and it just keeps... More

This motel is in a great location. Very close to the Del Mar Racetrack and right on the beach. You can sit and enjoy the great view of the ocean. Great also to take the family and BBQ right on site. There are great places to eat and shop close by.

My parents began our annual stay in 1964. My siblings and I brought our children here before they could walk. There is a magical quality to this motel, from the location (waterfront) to the convenience of restaurants, shopping, a park, a Saturday farmers market and an every other Tuesday concert, all within walking distance. The beach is by far one... More

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!
