Waaaaaaaay better than the Holiday inn down the street. difference of maybe 10-20 bucks but worth it. Standard courtyard amentities. It has been renovated, so no dated bathrooms. parking onsite. Even having a room towards the road it was still pretty quiet. In room air conditioner instead of central air.

Nicolaazar, I was sorry to read that you experienced problems with your check in time. We strive to have all of our rooms vacant ready for our guests for the 3:00 PM check in time. At times, circumstances beyond our control, such as late check outs etc. may prevent all of our rooms to be ready at 3:00 PM. We... More

I worked with Justin for our latest corporate event and the staff was amazing. We had 20+ attendees and many demands, yet his staff ensured that everything was seamless. They were extremely attentive and accommodating with every request. I can't say enough about this property or their willingness to make sure their guests feel welcome. There is plenty of parking....

We had never visited Del Mar and this a good starting point. It is located on the border of Del Mar, CA and Solana Beach. The facility has finished its remodel showing off a crisp decor, nice outdoor pool and reasonable bar with outside seating. Though it does not have a view of the beach, a 5 minute stroll takes...

This is a really nice hotel with "top notch" service. I was able to check in early, the front desk attendants always greeted me with a "hello" and a "smile" every time I entered the lobby area. The room was large and nicely renovated, the bathroom was sparkling clean, I loved the rain style shower head and the unique bathroom... More

The rooms are all recently renovated in a SoCal beach/ocean theme. They did a good job. Instead of carpet in the rooms, there is vinyl flooring made too look like hardwood. I prefer this. It's a cleaner, sleeker look than carpeting. But families with kids may miss the carpeting. The bedding, furniture, and decor has also been updated. There was... More
