What a special way to be my first California experience. Even though the property is under construction you can tell it will be a winner when done. We went with friends who stay there regularly. First the staff was friendly and helpful. What a pleasure to meet Barbara! She made us feel like one of the family. Location was perfect... More

The Stratford Inn, soon to be renamed Hotel Indigo, is a gem of a spot. The location is fantastic in terms of zipping in and out of San Diego, but without the crowds, so you can relax a bit. The room-king deluxe was clean, spacious and had a little kitchen area. The hotel calls it a suite, but it is... More

Hotel still under renovation. Banging, clanging, chain saws, dust, mud, around the grounds. The room was good. no chair, but otherwise, clean & comfortable. breakfast was a little on the lean side compared to other hotels. Not sure Id stay here again...not sure I'd come back to Del Mar.

Hotel just gone under renovation. I enjoyed already to stay here when I was driving down to San Diego , now they renovated it's even better, quiet, with pool and spa and that del mar spirit. Everyone is nice and breakfast is included not that often nowadays.

We really enjoyed our time at the Stratford Inn and will be back for a little escape from it all very soon. The staff was very helpful and the newly remodelled rooms were just perfect. Just down the street from the beach and an area to run in the morning, loved this place!!!
