“Graduation Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Nice and quiet location. Room with 1 queen bed and a sleeper. A complimentary breakfast with a variety of selection. We selected this hotel since it's close to UCSD. It could be us but we had to call the housekeeping 3 times to get additional bath towels :(

I recently traveled to San Diego for vacation with my wife. We stayed at the Homewood Suites by Hilton San Diego-Del Mar. We had an initial problem with our first room. There was a big wet spot on the floor near the bed. The attendent promptly switch rooms and offered to help move our luggage. That was really the only negative portion of our stay. The pool was nice and so was the hot tub, always hot, you don't always get that. We found the hot breakfast to be quite delightful, the staff always pleasant, the same goes for the Manager's Welcome back reception that was around dinner time Mon-Thurs. These amenities alone are a big win in my book. It could save families a lot of $$ for food everyday. It was the 2 of us but still it was nice. The hotel lobby was always clean and had fresh coffee from what I could tell 24/7.

The location is a bit outside the city but the price per night reflects the location. It is about 25 min from the Zoo and Sea World, Gaslamp Quarter and about 40 min from the Safari park. There is a main drag about 10 min away. Mira Mesa Dr. which has many restaurants and some shopping if you need to. Which we bought some food and snacks at Target to have in the room.

Overall this was a great hotel especially for the price in this area. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay.

Room Tip: Rooms near the rear ground of the hotel have a lot of traffic from the staff. We were near the laund...

We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa. We found the room to be just what we needed for our type of vacation. We had an elderly Grandma and two teenagers with us for a total of 5 people. We loved having the refrigerator to hold drinks and snacks. We visited the Del Mar Faire and La Jolla and didn't use the pool. The complimentary breakfast was awesome! It's suppose to close at 10, but our teenage girls were served ten minutes after. They loved the waffle bar. We were all quite pleased with the hospitality and the quality of guests visiting were extremely nice. I had left my purse on a couch in lounge area by mistake. One of the guests saw me frantically come off the elevator and had already turned it in. I had over $300 cash in it .Nice to know on vacation you are surrounded by honest and quality individuals!

Room Tip: We had corner room on 4th floor (room 425) and it was very large.

If you have read my other reviews you know I have a great history with this hotel. They are like family to us, so naturally we enjoy many family events here. Our latest stay was in celebration of my sons high school graduation. Almost two years ago at this very hotel my son suffered from sudden cardiac death. After a lot of work he has recovered, and is now a high school grad! All that he has gone thru, and is still working on, is what made this trip so meaningful. Homewood Suites helped get us thru those months of him being in the hospital, and they were there for his graduation. We also reserved several rooms, because we had many travelers, and everyone was well cared for and had plenty of room. Some drove, some flew, but we were all accommodated and made to feel at home. I do believe the staff help make this place so great, but the amenities are also worth mentioning. Great breakfast every morning. Relaxing atmosphere. Comfy without the 'tourist' feel. It's not in the city, but it's an easy drive, and free parking!! You can read about my sons whole experience on Facebook @ Alex Robinson.

Room Tip: I personally like the one bedroom suite, especially with kids. Hello, 2 TVs!!

Clean room, comfy beds, great wait staff in food area (David handled the breakfast shift expertly!). Love the 1 bedroom suite - where you can shut a door when someone is sleeping. We called and asked to have a lightbulb replaced - took less than 5 minutes for a knock on our door! Will definitely stay here again :)

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - we were tucked away from other travelers, it was perfect!

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great experience. The staff were friendly and the room was clean. Breakfast could have been better, but it was included so we didn't have super high expectations. It would have been helpful if there were a small amount of cooking oil in the room's kitchen. We wanted to cook while we were there, but didn't want to buy a big bottle and then take it with us on the road. Overall, we were quite satisfied and would stay here again.

Room Tip: We were glad we chose a room in the non-smoking section of the hotel.
