Wanted to stay an evening in Del Mar earlier this month before going to a biz mtg in Torrey Pines and drove past Hotel indigo close to sunset. Got hooked up immediately and what a find. Clean, classy and I'm going back. Nice dinner @ the bar that evening. Staff is super friendly, utmost professional and highly recommend Hotel indigo!... More

This property was chosen for me, although I'm not sure there were many more options convenient to where I had to be. The pricing is all across the board, so make sure to see if you can get a discount (Corporate, AAA, Government, etc.) to keep cost in line. We originally had a one night reservation, but discovered we had... More

This hotel has gone under rennovation and it shows up nicely in the common area (lobby, inside and outside bar with a fire pit). The rooms are quite large and clearly there has been a genuine attempt to elevate their level with the quality of the bed, the amenities, and so on. And some things were left undone, i.e. the...

I got a bidding price for this hotel for an overnight stay. For the bidding price, the hotel is ok. But if you pay the full price, it's definitely not worth it. The room gives you the feeling of a Motel 6 with super tiny bathroom. The AC unit was super loud and kept going on and off for the... More

Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm sorry that you feel our property is not worth the price.

It is regrettable the size of the bathroom affected the feel of your room during your stay... More

This was my 3rd time staying here. I had always had a positive experience with the rooms and staff up until now. Prepaid a non refundable rate for a King room. Upon arrival I was given an "upgrade" to a nice room but the bed was downsized without asking. I was too tired to change and accepted the small bed.... More

I have been to the bar/restaurant in this hotel about 4 or 5 times and every time I have problems.

We stayed here two nights recently for a wedding in Encinitas. It was a bit on the pricey side ($300/night) and for that our expectations were a bit higher. When you first walk in the lobby it is really nice. The decor is beachy chic, the check-in gal was great and there's a cool little "help yourself" area to grab... More

Based on price and description, one might expect something on the coast with a beachside ambiance and ocean views. This has virtually none of these, with ocean views limited and hard to find! This was a real disappointment considering the promotional descriptions, which are very misleading. Not remarkable.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with other Trip Advisor readers. I am sorry to hear that your experience was not what you expected. Many of our rooms and suites do have ocean views although we are not located directly on the beach and I apologize if your room was not what you were looking for. Best regards, Kara Willingham...
