Hotel was really clean and quiet. Beds were comfy - we like the firmer beds and the room layout was nice. We felt very relaxed. Bathroom was very clean. Patio could use a power wash. There was dirt and dust from mother nature. Other than that, everything was great!

You will need Sat.Nav. to find the hotel which is in the hills behind Del Mar but it is very quite and comfortable. We had booked a balcony suite which was on the second floor and asked to be moved from the first room offered to us as the balcony was overshadowed/ semi enclosed by a roof section of the... More

Lindsay made my stay extra enjoyable by offering first rate hospitality and I will stay again for work or pleasure. If you are in need for a place to stay in or around the Del Mar area you'd be well served to stay here.

Our room was excellent and the bed most comfortable. The staff were most helpful. When I asked where the nearest pharmacy was they said our van is outside he will take you. It was only a couple of hundred yards away! The restaurant was not much used but the bar food excellent. The ribs were among the best we've ever... More

I visited for a training that was using the hotel as its venue. Had I known the setting was in an area of multi-family residences I would have rented a car for better access to food and entertainment.

Check in was easy and we were given our room even though we were early in the day...we really appreciated that. We were on... More

Held a 60 person event for 4 days including lodging and food and was well attended to by all the staff. Employees who attended all gave top marks for the hotel and staff. No complaints. Food was delicious.
