Del Mar California is a beautiful place to visit and surf. Indigo is located within walking distance to Del Mar Plaza and just blocks to the beach. Highly suggest you walk the surrounding neighborhoods and beach. Rooms are ample and overall the entire facility is the best value compared to other hotels in the area. Two pools, nice lobby and...

The entry lobby is beautiful and overlooks the pool and ocean view. They are remodeling the rooms, we saw plenty of old bath tubs by the dumpster but our room was nicely done and a very comfortable shower with lots of hot water pressure. The pools were well kept up and loved the jacuzzi. Beds were comfortable and linens were... More

We were sorely disappointed in this hotel. The only 'boutique' thing about it was the lobby decorations. The beds were just ok, the bath towels were old, the bath fixtures were flimsy (we needed to screw in the sink plug and the faucet handle). The kitchen supples were 1 paper plate, 4 paper bowls and some plastics ware. They included... More

Because you will get a room overlooking a dumpster of household garbage and bags of dog feces. The defensive front desk will tell you "..well, we are renovating..". He will give you a "duh?" On why they cannot at least put a top or screen on the dumpster that is the view from room 437. You cannot see the ocean... More

We spent three nights at Hotel Indigo. The location was great. We walked into town for meals and sightseeing. Staff was VERY attentive. Our sons loved the pools and proximity to a park so they could shoot hoops. Hotel didn't feel like boring chain; it has personality. My husband and I enjoyed waiting for the sunset by the fire pits.... More

I stayed for 3 nights with my adult son. The room was large and oceanfront, with a deck overlooking the pool. The kitchen area might appeal to many, but I did not use/need. I would have liked to see some sort of beverage or snack item in the room. Water bottles would have been great! The bath linens were somewhat... More

We just returned from a quick overnight get-away to Del Mar and stayed at the Hotel Indigo Del Mar. We were pleasantly surprised by this property as we didn't have any real expectations since we did a bargain hunt online to find a good price.

The Hotel is a nice little Oasis in Del Mar that still has some kinks to work out. Hotel is a converted Best Western and the rooms have that used to be a Motel feel to them. The public areas are very nicely appointed and the location is excellent, just a block from the beach. Some of the rooms are... More

I booked a king, ocean view room at a non-peak time. I arrived 2 hours before the 4pm check in time. The clerk was very friendly and made a point of doing me a big favor by checking me in early. Unfortunately, the room had a view of a dumpster with maybe a glimpse of the ocean. Worse, it had... More

The website for this hotel looked fabulous. Unfortunately the maintanance and cleanliness leave much to be desired! The Oceanview Deluxe two Double Bed Room, while laid out nicely, was dusty, sticky and dingy. The kitchenette is terribly equipped with paperplates, a pan and a pot, but no dishtowel, detergent, or silverware (there were a few bags of plasticware). The pool... More
