We choose to stay here so we would be steps from the beach. The rooms are cute and clean and bigger than chain hotels. Décor is nice and airy. It was nice to get a break from the chain hotel ambiance, or lack thereof. The rooms don't actually face the beach so I would advise not to pay the extra... More

This hotel is RIGHT on the beach. The room was average, had a refrigerator, bed and shower. The best amenity is the location. I walked to Starbucks about a half mile for coffee every morning. Watching the waves and surfers was fun.

I felt that this should show up in the "excellent" category. The truth is if you are considering this motel RUN, Run as fast as you can to another hotel/motelWe are experienced travellers. The photos of the rooms must be from another part of the motel. Certainly not the normal room. Arrived at 12:30pm to learn that the office was... More

We found you folks quite by accident, thankfully so!!! Your location is absolutely the best, the rooms are clean, comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. We came in mid week so there was tons of room in the parking lot. Pillows were a bit thin, the bed could have been a bit more comfortable but all in all... More

Good place to stay. We chose it for location on the ocean, and it was perfect. Clean, if a little dated rooms, funny lights going on and off, but enough space and clean bathroom with good shower. I'd recommend a stay here. Nice friendly checkin. simple and easy stay.

My family stayed at in Del Mar last weekend. The timing was great as the beach was not crowded and the water was still reasonably warm. There were several other young families staying at the hotel making it more enjoyable for the kids as they were able to make new friends. The property is literally on the beach and right... More

You can't get any closer to the beach than being a nice motel that is sitting on the sand - and also has lovely patios, and balcony areas for you to sit or lounge and watch and listen to the ocean. I loved it. Del Mar Motel is not fancy by any means. But servicable. Small TV - bed was... More

We are from the midwest and have visited family in So. Cal. many times. We have stayed in several areas. Before our departure for our current trip we found out our favorite beach hotel in Malibu was no longer available. Very disappointing to say the least.
