We stayed here for a week in April and enjoyed the stay. We had a one bedroom suite, which was a nice size with a reasonable kitchen for our limited needs. The location is convenient to the beaches but easy to access I-5 or the 56 to head inland. The pool and club room are a nice plus, esp. for... More

The place was clean, but we had lead-footed neighbors overhead with a small child running back and forth for hours. Not the resort's fault, but it made the stay somewhat unpleasant. I let the management know, and they said if you call two weeks in advance, you can request an upper floor. That would have been helpful to know before.... More

We stayed at the Winners Circle Resort for the first time this week, logging a 6 day stay, booked via Expedia. We found the property to be affordable, peaceful, clean, and convenient. We spent our time visiting family further north, at the beach in Del Mar, downtown, and visiting the zoo. Everything was close, and outside of rush hour, traffic... More

Located across the street from the famous Del Mar Racetrack, the Winners Circle Resort (WCR) is a set of small two-story buildings overlooking a central courtyard. The entire resort began a major remodel about 5 years ago that significantly improved all the guest rooms. I have been an owner at WCR for 10 years. I continue to be impressed with... More

I have been coming to this place for the last 7 years and they continue to exceed our expectations. The upgrades they have done to the rooms are huge and always super clean, excellent customer service, and great location.

The resort is small. Doesn't have a lot of room. It is well located for beach activity, biking, shopping, etc. Lots of things to do close by. There was a big golf tournament going on when we were there but the traffic really wasn't an issue. The rooms are comfortable. In both the living room and bedroom (we had a... More

A great hotel at a great price. Excellent location with lots of restaurants located within walking distance or just a short drive away. The property is clean with some nice landscaping. The check-in was fast, but they required a LOT of paperwork and signatures at check-in. I've never had to sign so many times for a hotel stay ever, and... More
