I read a couple of negative reviews, hence a bit skeptical, but I couldn't say no since it was under $200. The moral is lower your expectations and get wowed. The front desk staff was great. They gave me some excellent suggestions on eats and places to go. The cleaning staff was very accommodating and I got a late checkout... More

given that this is a renovated Best Western, it's surprisingly good. All the rooms have been re-done with new surfaces and they're quite nice (new tiled showers, countertops, floors, etc). Very nice furnishings. But you can still tell it's an old motel (windows, doors, etc). The staff however makes up for the other shortcomings in being very welcoming and efficient.... More

My friend and I spent a weekend in Del Mar/San Diego and had a lovely room with an ocean view. The room was large and airy and with the patio door and windows open, we had wonderful ocean breezes. The ocean-facing balcony turned out to be our favorite place to have breakfast each morning. But my favorite feature of the... More

From the vanilla-scented lobby to the extra-large room with the fantastic balcony, this was a great hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beds were super comfortable. I was originally afraid that 4 women in one room was going to be claustrophic, but my sisters and I never felt cramped. The room was really spacious and we appreciated... More

We just came home from a short mid-week visit in room 321 and I wish I didn't have to leave. The lobby is so inviting perhaps because it was decorated just like my home. The lobby lounge opens out to the terrace and pools with the Pacific just beyond. Very light and airy. The front desk agents at both check... More

We stayed here 2 nights; great location and really comfortable accommodations. I suspect that this is a newer property to the Hotel Indigo brand; but we were very satisfied. Room was well outfitted. We had an upgrade to a partial ocean view. Pool was clean and comfortable. (I didn;t have the problems that Camila W had.) The upstairs has bar... More

Here are my observations and disappointments: Clearly very under-staffed and not properly trained. Room was dirty, cup of coffee and old coffee grinds left in the coffee maker, two wet towels on the floor by the refrigerator, cobwebs, staff swept floor with broom instead of vacuum which meant the sand was not really picked up. The lawn chairs in the... More

My wife and I stayed here overnight on one of my business trips. The staff are courteous and friendly. The area is quiet and cozy. For one thing, it was such a hassle to have to move to a different room after being settled in already. It is understandable to experience technical failures in a room but the swift decision-making... More

I stayed here 3 weeks ago and I gave this hotel a 5 star ++++, so decided to return only 3 weeks later! Well maybe one time should have been my limit.

We stayed here on the night we were evacuated by the fires in Carlsbad. The staff was very friendly and understanding. Many of my neighbors were also there that night, all of us with dogs and kids in tow. It turned what was an extremely stressful evening into a fun get-together with the neighborhood. Our room was nicely done with... More
