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.

Not great - really just average. Difficult to get luggage into the hotel from the parking lot since only stairs are available from the lot. Really noisy heat unit in the room. Bed was somewhat stiff and the bathroom sink was too high. It was overpriced for all that.

We will return! Clarise at the front desk could not have been more friendly, advising on restaurants and where to rent bikes. The location is stellar...only a 10 minute walk to the main Del Mar commercial center. Ask for a room facing the ocean on the 3rd floor; the loud peaceful waves and fresh ocean breezes will lull you to... More

Dear christylulu: Thank you for the great comments on TripAdvisor. Friendly Staff (Charyze) is one of our great ones, she takes great pride in assisting guests with questions directing them to the right destination, no matter where it may be in San Diego. Next time, please try our Bistro C – as it’s relatively new, but the food is great!... More

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 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

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.
