“Great start to our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2005

My husband, two teenage children and I stayed in a suite in this hotel for 4 nights in September 2005. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel has good access to I5 but is not noisy. The suites are very comfortable with two bathrooms, a king bed in the main bedroom, and a sofa sleeper (plus rollaway) in the other room plus microwave and fridge. Breakfast was very good (fruit salad, bagels, some cooked items, etc). Free internet access worked fine. The gym was small and gets a bit crowded in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only minor downside was the pool, which was on the small side and near the main entrance to the hotel.

Just got back from four nights/five days in sunny San Diego. After doing a ton of research on this website, I settled on the Hampton Inn/Del Mar.
And I wasn't disappointed. It's darn near perfect if you're going to the races or anything at the fairgrounds. The rooms are not fancy by any means, but they're clean and have everything you need including free wi-fi. One nice feature of Hampton inns is that if you forget something like toothpaste, they'll bring some up to your room.
Also the free breakfast is a terrific bonus with eggs, meat (something different each day, ham, sausage, etc.), cereal (hot and cold), pastries, juice, coffee. They also offered ready to go brown bag breakfasts, which included a bottle of water, a muffin, apple and cereal bar. All of which saved me time and money to enjoy the area.
I chose Del Mar because i wanted to go to the horse races, but it also turned out to be centrally located for my other adventures, the zoo, animal park, Torrey Pines and the beaches.

This is a very dog friendly hotel. It was clean, offered a great breakfast, and the location was near Mission Beach and the ipayone center. We will return on the next trip. It offered a lot for the money.

The positives = The bathrooms were nice, new, clean and had shampoo, condtioner etc.. The room was clean, Big TV with movies. Breakfast is included. Free parking. The whole hotel is sparkling, and well decorated.

The less then positive = The hotel is literally right off the highway and our room was facing that direction. We didn't hear any noise but the view wasn't "relaxing". We were travelling with 3 kids. A single room is too small for a family of 5. We did it and we still can't figure out why. Make sure you get 2 rooms wth a family this size.

The breakfast was good but not as good as the Marriott Residence Inn's breakfast. (Hampton Inn is lacking a waffle maker and homemade oatmeal cereal)

We stayed at the Hampton Inn Del Mar for several nights in June 2005. Our standard double room was clean and up-to-date, very nice bathroom. Not the largest room in the world, but adequate. The daily free breakfast is excellent with lots of choices. The desk staff were cheery and very helpful, giving us a free map showing restaurants etc. close to the hotel. It is close to I-5 which makes it convenient for getting into town. Five-minute drive from Torrey Pines state beach & reserve. We are glad we chose this hotel, thank you TripAdvisor!

My wife and I stayed here for three nights during a week spent in Southern California the week before Memorial Day weekend, and it was a great place to stay. About 10 minutes from La Jolla and 20 minutes from downtown San Diego, it's in a quiet area but close to the main highway running from SD to LA.
Anyway, we paid extra for a two-room suite, and we were happy we did. The extra space was great, and it was only $150 a night.
We found this Hampton Inn and the one at LAX airport to be the cleanest we've ever stayed in. It was spotless, and fresh smelling as well.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and everything worked, from the TVs to the refrigerator and microwave.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area.
