I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in the vicinity of UC San Diego or near the La Jolla area. It was very clean, quiet, and an overall pleasant experience. Free parking as well made this a good choice. I had previously stayed at a hotel quite near the airport and was put off by their $25... More

Visiting La Jolla confronts travelers with many pricey choices. Just up the road in Del Mar are many higher value hotels with good freeway access, comfy rooms, free parking (unheard of in La Jolla), and all the amenities and this hotel has it all plus the most accommodating and courteous and cheerful staff imaginable. Quiet rooms.Ample parking. Jacuzzi. Microwaves and... More

Heating/air variation 10 degrees, came on and off, hot cold. Bed moist the first night and hard. Unit very noisy. Brought to the manager's attention, he suggested we go to the hotel next door. We had dinner the first night we arrived at the hotel. The service was OK, the food was good. Breakfast was good, service was poor. Had... More

A nice hotel in the Del Mar area. Conveniently located and highest level of service. The staff is very courteous and eager to help. I am a repeat visitor here and this is my first preference for a hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel more than forty times. The staff is friendly and efficient. The facilities are excellent and the food is very good. It is small to medium size and has the feel of a quality European small hotel. I highly recommend it.

I had a really nice stay here. The room was nice, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was great. The only thing I didn't like was that I paid extra for a room with a balcony only to find that it opened to a view of another building's roof and nothing else. But that's a simple fix. Great... More

The Moment I walked through the doors I was warmly welcomed by Mr. Doug Ficke, he was extraordinary and went out of his way to make my stay extraordinary! I will definitely be sending family and friends and will be returning when I am in San Diego.
