I was very impressed with my hotel stay. Room was immaculate, felt brand new, with a bright, and beautifully decorated beach theme. Be sure to ask for an ocean view. Hotel is not huge so it has that quaint "inn" feel to it. The hotel grounds provided nice areas for sitting and relaxing. Didn't use pool but it looked nice... More

Dear Lauracella: Did we do something wrong? You wrote “Just Perfect”, but only gave us a single dot for the hotel. Your comments are great except for the loud noise next door. Please review AND please rewrite if necessary – we hope we havene’t done something wrong. Sincerely, Thomas Mackey Clarion Del Mar Inn Hotel More

We recently stayed at the Clarion Del Mar Inn and fell in love with the hotel and it's old world charm. The location was ideal for those loving to be by the ocean. Only a minutes walk to the beach to take in the spectacular sunset's and a few blocks away from the many restaurants in Del Mar. We loved... More

The Rooms are in great reconditioned condition, and have all of the amenities that a much higher hotel has. Very high quality bath rooms, and bedroom. The bistro served me the best breakfast egg burrito I have eve had. Highly Recommended.

Fortunately, this hotel is in a great location, close to the ocean. We asked for an Ocean view, but was not told that the view overlooked the parking lot, another building, then the ocean, so a bit misleading. There was a lipstick stain on the glass and they were not very understanding or interested. Ladies at the front desk were... More

I found this to be a very pleasant stay. Clean, nicely remodeled. Short walk to the beach. Great sunset view from the terrace restaurant. Definitely coming back! Ideally for nature loving peeps, close enough for walks, bike riding, surfing.

Great value. Pride in ownership is evident. Right, cherry and very clean. Plenty of parking. Great location. Will probably make this my go to hotel business.. Wouldn't consider this property exactly romantic but would consider bringing the GF here too, based on location and value. They have a bistro on site as well, but sadly nothing appealed to me only...
