First of all, Sheila Zable, the Sales Manager, is wonderful to work with to plan an event. She is helpful, patient, and has great suggestions. The entire weekend of our daughter’s baby shower was absolutely perfect--I could not have asked for more!! We had 30 women attend the shower in their Event Room. Sheila set up a block of rooms,...

Nice clean room on 3rd floor. Comfortable bed and pillows, small refrigerator and microwave, ample well lit closet and small balcony, even with ocean view you're over a parking lot. A little noise from parking lot but not too bad. Air conditioner in room old and made horrible noise why we needed It later at night. Luckily we were on... More

Dear Ev4green: Thank you for the great comments on TripAdvisor, great bed pillows, and the wet bar is the best – with refrigerator & microwave makes for those extra items & late night snacks. My apologies if the Air-conditioning wasn’t to your liking, we’ll try harder to make it more quiet during your next stay. Hope to have you return... More

Had a quick business trip and stayed at the Clarion Del Mar Inn. Never a disappointment, always very clean and quiet and has the most helpful employees!! Plus they have the best breakfast around, I highly recommend their special french toast or breakfast bagel sandwich. Yum!! 5 stars again, Clarion Del Mar Inn...thank you!!

Currently staying at the Clarion in a standard room with one queen bed with a balcony. Pretty good overall so far. Staff has been friendly, rooms were clean, and the hotel was quiet. The location is a great 5 min walk to the beach and close to a lot of great local businesses. I also enjoyed the heated swimming pool.... More

Dear Shannon J: Thank you for the great comments on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with your comments of no privacy curtains as we have them in every room of the hotel. They’re behind the Sheer curtains, so you will in fact have all the privacy necessary for a great stay. Hope to have you return – just take... More

The entire hotel is very well done, and the west side rooms all offer a nice view of the ocean and a small balcony with 2 chairs. There is an elevator, so the view is best higher up (there are 3 floors). Very clean rooms, lots of extras and a very nice shower. The little cafe on site actually has... More

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
