I made a reservation here last minute online for a 1 night stay. I have stayed at other Clarion hotels in the past and was expecting the same from my previous experiences. This particular hotel has recently been remodeled with very tasteful hardware, appliances and amenities. I was quite impressed with the cleanliness & attention to detail.

This hotel was absolutely beautiful and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the Del Mar area. There is also a bistro/cafe located on the property as well as a washer and dryer. The hotel was very close (walking distance) to the beautiful Del Mar down town area as well. Absolutely a gorgeous area.

We spent ten days at the Clarion Del Mar and had a wonderful vacation thanks to their great hotel staff - everyone from the front desk clerks to the housekeeping staff were pleasant and accommodating. All of our requests were met quickly allowing us to truly enjoy our stay. Our spacious room had great amenities - especially the mini kitchenette!... More

On one of my semi-regular trips with my wife to visit colleagues in La Jolla spent 4 nights at the Del Mar Inn. It has been 2 years since my last visit to this hotel and room renovations that were underway then have been completed and given the place added brightness and freshness. We were fortunate to receive a room... More

Very clean and quiet inn. Appears that rooms have been updated over the years. Ours was a king room with a mini frig, microwave and sink. Comfortable bed. Although the room faced the road, the lovely garden below and pool acted as a sound buffer. Friendly helpful staff especially at the front desk. Had a great soak in the hot... More

A great place to stay when visiting San Diego. Very clean with a wonderful staff! The location is close to many restaurants and shopping centers. Its location is near the interstate "5" for trips into San Diego.
