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.

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. It was very close to where I had to be and the hotel was beautiful inside and outside. I only stayed two nights and did not get to experience all the amenities, however it had everything I needed. I did use the bar and both the food and the drinks... More

This property exceeded my expectations for an HGI. The HVAC produced an "all or nothing" effect. I had a choice of being too cold or too warm. The room was fine other than that binary HVAC feature. Oddly, I have encountered this HVAC situation in other HGIs. The location was very convenient for driving around the area.

The Hilton Garden Inn in Del Mar truly made us feel like family while we were there. The amenities and staff were beyond compare in our experience and the food was to die for! Of course, the location doesn't hurt.

This is a great place to stay in San Diego. The staff is awesome. The hotel is great too it felt like I was living in my own home. That's how comfortable I felt. It was clean quiet and very well managed. Jon stood out at breakfast making us feel very welcome and tending to our every need and request.
