The hotel is in beautiful Del Mar, but a bit down the road from all of the shops and restaurants. So it is a decent walk any time you want to go somewhere. The hotel itself is getting old. There is a computer off to the side of the lobby, thus they have a bit of a combo lobby business... More

Dear Mr. markaarondavis: Thank you for your colorful comments on TripAdvisor. Not much to say here other than some of us step up and take care of our mistakes while others push blame on to anyone but themselves. Please remember, “there’s always two sides to every story”, and I’m not allowed by TripAdvisor to penetrate those barriers. Hope you have... More

I was traveling solo and was spending most of my time with friends who live in Del Mar. With that in mind, this was a great location since I did want to be on the beach and not on the east side of the I-5. Not only was it an easy walk to the beach, if you use the 15th... More

Dear Peter H: Thank you for the great compliments regarding our facility. Great location to bounce around San Diego altogether – North, South, East OR a short walk to the West at the beautiful Blue Pacific Ocean.

We stayed here two nights with two children and enjoyed the stay. Five minutes to La Jolla and only twenty minutes from Sea World. A very easy walk down to the beach to enjoy the most amazing sunset and a very active shopping/restaurant district. The room wasn't anything over the top spectacular, but it had everything you need... mini-fridge (for... More

We felt at home in this very clean quaint property. The service and friendly accommodating staff were impressive. There is a very functional small kitchen nook with refrigerator, sink, microwave, and cupboards in each room. We are very particular about hotel properties and would return to this property. We rated the sleep quality a 4 rather than 5 because of... More

Dear Jan H: We can always promise quaint, friendly, and clean – but sometimes with the crowds, it can be a little noisy. But, it’s the kind of noise you enjoy hearing when family and friends are laughing out loud to a funny joke or some other comical prank. Lots of families stay and enjoy the hotel and park next...

Nice relaxing hotel with beautiful views of the ocean. Started our mornings hiking at Torrey Pines State Park which is minutes from the hotel. Then enjoyed a great breakfast at the hotel's Bistro C restaurant. My suggestion is to have the French Toast, but from what I saw all breakfasts were delicious!!
