“Excellent customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Stayed here for two weeks on a business trip. All aspects of the hotel staff were outstanding. Housekeeping was phenomenal (best I've ever seen). The kitchen staff was outstanding, as was the reception desk. The (free) breakfast was very good, and the (free) manager's dinner special were several notches above what you normally get for free dinner. Every single member of the staff here, with no exception, seemed ready to bend over backwards to make the guests happy. The room was standard Homewood Suites; separate bedroom, living room, two flat screen TVs, stove top (no oven), microwave, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker. Hotel has an outdoor pool, fitness room, and laundry ($1 wash, $1 dry). Overall, one of my best hotel experiences ever.

Room Tip: The 20 minute drive to downtown San Diego was worth the drive, considering the comfort I had at the...

I have stayed more at Homewood Suites Del Mar in 2012 that I have at home. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by the white glove service extended to me. Plus, the food is awesome at breakfast and the welcome reception. Nice and comfy. You wouldn't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Go for the king suite

The lobby and breakfast area here are kept up very nice. The staff was friendly and the free wi-fi, coffee, and other amenities were very good.

The room itself had a very worn look to it. Carpet stains, rust showing through paint on metal hinges, a dated coil top stove, the bathroom door scraped the vanity area light whenever you opened it, ironing board was dirty, etc. The place was not gross, don't get me wrong, it is just showing it's age.

I did get the impression that everything was cleaned and well maintained, if not a bit worn. I would stay here again if I had to do business in the immediate area. The rooms were a good size with two large flat screens.

We would like to first, thank you for your recent stay and for taking the time to post about your experience on TripAdvisor. Feedback like yours is critical in helping us deliver the highest standard of guest service and accommodations.

We would like to express our sincerest apologies that you were unhappy with the state of your suite. I have personally discussed this with our housekeeping team, to ensure you that if any of the products or fixtures in the suite are replaced when they fall below our very high standard. Furthermore, I'd like you to know that we will be upgrading our bedding package and replacing all of our easy chairs over the next year, with other in-room changes scheduled down the road. We hope that this will not deter you from staying with us the next time you are in San Diego.

Thank you again for your patronage, and your comments. If there are any further questions, comments, or follow-up items I may be able to address for you, please don't hesitate to contact me directly anytime. We're very sorry that your stay was not one-of-a-kind, and we hope to be able to welcome you back and provide you with one-of-a-kind service very soon!

The hotel was everthing that one would expect from a homewood suites - comfortable, clean, well appointed room, friendly staff, good free food (breakfast and evening reception). The location was convenient to the interstate, but far enough away to be quiet. Make sure you look up directions first as the hotel is a little hard to find.
Drawback - very few dining options near the hotel.

Off the beaten path, clean suite, free parking, complimentary breakfast. The suite was perfect for this family of 2 parents and a teenager. Board games need to be replaced, but front desk loaned us a deck of cards. Front desk and housekeeping very professional and helpful. After very busy days, it was nice to return to our quiet "home". This is the first hotel (ever!) that we did not hear slamming doors and loud guests in the hallways.

Beautiful site, often-empty pool, handy to have supper provided, spacious suite, but most important is the friendly staff. Techno-savvy for those of us who aren't, knowledgeable about the area, never too busy to help you out. And they don't make you feel rushed if you want to linger an hour (or 2) in the dining room.

Room Tip: Worth the extra cost for a view of the water.

Homewood offers very comfortable rooms. The hotel is very quiet and in a nice area. There is easy access to freeways. They offer a variety of foods for breakfast that would please all types of preferences. In the evening they offer a dinner meal that has to be one of the best around. Each night is different with a salad, main course and an array of beverages including complimentary beer and wine.

Room Tip: Stay on the thrid floor the first week and the second floor the second week both were exceptional...
