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. We always call this our super secret spot, so I hate giving away our secrets but I felt I needed to... More

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

It's called a resort for good reason; big pool, clubhouse with a great pool table, nice room with a spotless, fully-equipped kitchenette and it's right between two great restaurants. It's across the street from del mar race track and right by the beach.

We will definitely be interested in staying at Winner's Circle again if we ever return to SoCal. We stayed a week on a timeshare exchange. While there, in Dec 2014/Jan 2015, one building was closed as it was being remodeled. It is the last building to be completed and then all units will be remodeled. We had a ground floor... More

Not worth the trade...stayed ony one night out of 7. Smelly and old....noise from generator or something felt like a motorcycle running under the room. Switched rooms due to smell then ended up with a worse view. They need to demolish and start over.
