we've stayed there twice and it's been great both times. keep in mind that they allow dogs. they charge extra and do a great job cleaning the rooms afterwards, but if you're sensitive (like i am) they'll go the extra mile if you have ANY issues. great location - love the little down and access to the ocean. the restaurant...

Sometimes you should get away for a spa weekend. Great rooms with amazing views. Friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant was good. Menu was a bit limited. Spa is one of kind. Worth every penny! Highly recommend.

Very enjoyable for the most part. Great room, location could not be better, excellent staff. Only negative was the restaurant, which didn't offer what I'd call a great menu and the quality of the steak I ordered was well poor for the price. But all in all a very nice stay and I'd definitely repeat.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a wonderful location overlooking the Pacific. It is private and exclusive without being snooty and has easy walking access to the beach which all felt safe! Very nice property for couples as you could take walks together in several directions. Easy access to the interstate to go up or down the... More

I have never written a negative hotel review but this time, I have to. We booked two rooms several months in advance, thru the hotel and at full rate. I think we must have been given the two worse rooms in the hotel. One room was tiny with a balcony and a ladder crossing thru it over the parking area....the... More

4/5 star setting/service and prices but rooms are a bit disappointing - the a/c was really noisy and the wifi unreliable. General atmosphere and character of the hotel is excellent though - outdoor spaces are beautiful. food in Kitchen restaurant good and lots of other food choices within walking distance.

This is a strange hotel that builds it self up and charges rooms at 4 star hotel prices yet the standards are far below and would rate it at a 2 star hotel. This hotel does have heritage from the Bing Crosby era but those days are far gone. This is a convenient hotel if you visit the local race... More

Love the hotel and the staff is very accommodating. The views are amazing and I like the small hotel atmosphere. It is easy to get to your room and always a place at the pool. We did have some issues and had to change rooms a couple of times, but the staff did an excellent job handling things and it... More

Quite a tricky review this one. There is a lot to like about the Auberge but overall too many small things were missing to give our visit a higher rating. The positives: - Fantastic location in the centre of Del Mar convenient for the beach, shops and restaurants. - Warm welcome and fantastic service throughout our stay from the valet... More

There, I said it. We hated our room, try not to stay in #153. With that being said, this is a fantastic property in Del Mar. What makes a truly great hotel ( in my opinion ) is the staff and this staff is epic! Christine and Elise at the desk create such a positive it's impression, that it lasts... More
