Good location, service and not overly crowded. Beds were fantastic and no hall noise, which was nice since I arrived at 2:30am! Proximity to Del Mar and Torrey made it a perfect, economic place to stay. Would go back!

The bed and breakfast deal was incredible. What a value, and such good quality of food and service. Dinner was incredible. My Martini was perfect. The staff suggested the tuna appetizer and the halibut entrée, and they were spot on, both some of the best I have ever had. The fried brownies are rich, so too many for a serving... More

Everything was lovely from staff to rooms. the fitness center was a little small, same for the pool. As well cell service in the hotel is bad. my room had 1 bar while the bar had no service. Everything seems a little far but its good for a getaway. price is a little high for me though.

This Hilton is centrally located for my business travel in the San Diego area. It's clean and comfortable with a knowledgeable and helpful staff. I would stay there any time I am in the San Diego area. Thanks to the late night staff for the extra-effort.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights now going on 4 & 5 and we love it! We've stayed in San Diego before and for the value there is no better than the Hilton garden in Del mar. Grounds were well kept and the parking lot was well lit. We had a balcony and a view of the pool.... More

We spent hours online to find a hotel that was within 30 minutes of the heart of San Diego, Safe, Reasonably Priced (free parking), all while still being luxurious. The first thing that we realized is that you have to look NORTH of San Diego or else we would be on the Mexican Border. The Hilton Gardens on Ocean Bluff... More

Super clean and the staff are wonderful. The bed is adjustable for firm to soft. Which is great. Only issue I had was the walls seemed paper thin. Could hear the TV in the room next door and as with all other hotels, could hear the showers from other rooms, but found then extremely loud.

We have begun to frequent Hilton Garden inns because they are clean and have a lot of amenities. I had a two day turn around trip to San Diego for business and checked out this Hilton Garden Inn. I was not disappointed. After traveling 12 hours with lay overs across country we arrived at the HGI at 2 PM PST.... More

Large rooms, good location, Hilton service and breakfast with a view will make your stay as comfortable as you would expect your So Cal stay to be. I can't think of any downsides. Perfect destination for a short and inexpensive romantic getaway if you want to focus on each other rather than the surroundings.

Stayed here two nights in February,2015. Could not have been more pleased. Wonderful staff, clean rooms, and comfortable beds. Breakfast coupons were a delightful surprise. And the food was very good.
