I really liked this place. Nicely appointed room, friendly desk staff and actually a good view of the ocean from my 3rd floor balcony. And it was nice to have the small snack café to grab a morning coffee and bagel.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location is great, very convenient to shopping, the beach and restaurants. The rooms have been recently updated and are very comfortable. Parking is free and really close.

We booked based on TA reviews as well as the reasonable price. We had a second story room on the ocean side with a small balcony. Although not right on the coast, we had a fabulous view of the sunset. The room was updated and had many amenities including refrigerator, microwave, coffee service, large bathroom, roomy walk-in shower and free... More

Dear Judi M: Thank you for the great TripAdvisor comments. Even though we’re not right on the water, any west side room offers a beautiful sunset blue water view of the Pacific Ocean.

Stayed here on business and was pleasantly surprised. Nice rooms, freshly painted interior. Large shower (something not readily found). They have a bistro on site, but strangely no menu in rooms. was greeted by a lovely lady and even had my room ready earlier than anticipated. Great neighborhood, ideal for walks on the beach. Close to freeway.

My husband and I came up with a last minute plan to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary with a trip to Del Mar. We chose the Clarion Inn after reading reviews and thought to ourselves let's try out this place. The hotel staff were amazing, the room nice and location was perfect. We were very happy with our getaway!!!!!!

My wife and I were evacuated from Los Cabos last month after mother natures destructive visit to S. Baja via hurricane Odile. We had financial challenges and were physically and emotionally wiped out.

Sure it has a nice ocean view from the upper floors, nice but not spectacular, a couple of large trees block out a good deal and you also have a view of rooftops. The staff is the best part, really nice people, but... there is no complementary breakfast, they only give you a 15% off coupon for one item at... More

This is a long review. Historically, it is rare for me to give such a bad review. To sum it up, if you don't want to read all my comments, I will summarize them. The outdoor restaurant staff were rude to me and the front desk staff were a little odd. I can deal with odd since others might not... More
