My favorite hotel in the area. We’ve stayed here five times in the last couple of years. Good location, set back off the freeway, one mile from the beach, one mile from Scripps Hospital, less than five miles from the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The service was excellent – desk staff was very kind, attentive, responsive to all of our needs and eager to accommodate. The rooms themselves were great – spacious, clean, well laid out, comfortable beds, recently remodeled and pleasantly decorated. A generous bathtub and big sink area, flat screen tv, coffee pot, mini-fridge, blow dryer, wonderful free breakfast buffet with nice selection (- including a pancake machine!), free internet in the lobby (one computer with printer) were all definite pluses. There was a gym, pool and jacuzzi (which we didn’t use) and a conference room. There are less expensive hotels in the area, but this hotel is a bargain and easily offers the best quality for the money. We will definitely stay here again and again.
