Guest Services was fabulous. Thank you Tina and Sally for your top notch service. Only concern is some white noise late at night from systems running. I like things to be completely quiet. Great hotel overall. Very comfortable.

The Hilton Garden Inn Del Mar is a great place. Centrally located and not to far from all the San Diego destinations. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It's a very nice facility and the small restaurant is surprisingly good. Will definitely stay here next time we are in San Diego.

Solid Hilton property. We checked in pretty late and the young girl at the front desk was friendly and helpful....good start. After unloading and getting the family to the room I came down to wrap up some work. Bartender stayed open late for me and another gentlemen who was down in the lobby. Needed some milk for my son to... More

The Hilton Garden Inn Del Mar was very clean friendly and willing to help with whatever was needed. Good location and friendly staff will have me coming back again. Shuttle to Del Mar Beach was very helpful and on time.

The staff was very nice here. The room was comfortable. The bed had duel adjustable controls but there were no directions on how to use them. I am guessing that this hotel is about 10 years old because of the small bath tub and carpet design. We had breakfast here and the blueberry pancakes were fluffy and had a good... More

This is a rare HGI property in that it's ranked very well, and that the noise issues apparent with most HGI properties have been mitigated. Perhaps those two things are related. Two other things are definitely related to the success of this property: 1. The GM is also very personally involved in the success of this property as noticed in... More

We stayed at this Hilton for a week during our recent trip to San Diego. The location was excellent less than 20mins away for all the places we were visiting (Sea World, Zoo, Safari Park and Legoland). Food was very good - we had breakfast all days there and dinner on one day. Rooms were clean and the staff were... More

Nice room, no problems. Very courteous desk staff. Could hear a bit of noise at one point from kids jumping of the bed on the floor above, but otherwise nice and quiet. Would have appreciated a complimentary breakfast, but room rate was low enough to not make this an issue.
