Stayed here for work, and really liked the place. Balcony view of the ocean, a "lagoon" (pool), on-site cafe, and easy walking distance to Del Mar restaurants. Gym is currently closed, so we have free access to a Del Mar gym from 630am-930pm.

Excellent staff that is very friendly and helpful! Also an excellent value and very "homey".The bathroom was huge. Beautiful view of the Pacific from our 2nd floor balcony. The free and ample parking was also a big plus!

It really is not what you would expect from Clarion. Completely remodeled, the hotel really is a boutique inn with the Clarion name. While the rooms are small they are well furnished, very very clean and well appointed. They have a bistro on site where you can purchase breakfast or supper. It will save lots of walking if all you... More
