“Excellent value, but bring your car!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. The place was clean and well-maintained. The hot breakfast AND dinner every day were a great bonus. Our breakfasts included scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, make-your-own waffles, as well as the usual cereal, muffins, etc... We only enjoyed dinner once, but it was tacos! This hotel also has two computers for public use off the lobby, which was very helpful in looking up local attractions and checking into my flight. It is far from most major attractions in San Diego, though, so be prepared for a bit of a drive on the highway. For us, it was no problem. Definitely recommended.

This is our second stay at Homewood Suites San Diego-Del Mar. Once again, our stay was wonderful. The beds are comfortable and the staff is excellent. It will be our only place to stay on our trips to San Diego.

We had a very nice 6-night stay at this property in late June. It's location close to I5 is very convenient to all the major attractions in San Diego. The front desk staff was particularly helpful! We also partook of the complimentary breakfasts and dinners (week days) and found them very good, again staff was wonderful! We appreciated that they switched out the breakfast options each day as repetitive food can get boring fast.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit with six of us and found it plenty roomy. We had a couple of insignificant maintenance issues that management responded to very quickly and successfully. Daily housekeeping was fine.

The front desk staff gave us directions to a nearby Vons Market which allowed us to purchase some food items and snacks. We cooked a couple of simple evening meals on the weekend using the two-burner stove. The Hilton Garden Inn (next door) has a couple of restaurants, but we didn't find any other family restaurants nearby. We rented the Beach Bundle from the front desk which included 2 beach chairs, 2 towels, beach umbrella, and a boogie board which greatly enhanced our beach day!

The pool was small, but adequate. The kids in our group swam every evening during our stay.

This hotel is perfect location if you are planning to travel north or south San Diego. Not alot of traffic in this area, like the hotel circle area or downtown. This hotel was very clean and staff was super friendly. The morning breakfast was a nice bonus although don't expect anything too fancy, they had powder eggs and not too many selections, although the waffles you can make yourself were excellent. Can't really complain for it being complimentary. We didn't do the evening reception so I can't comment on that part. The pool was nice, but for it being heated it was still pretty chilly. The rooms are not as big as I anticipated but still works for a family of 4. Kitchen amenities were nice and they have a full fridge if you plan on taking groceries. If you plan on attending the beach, you can rent beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards from the hotel for a cost. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here, quiet and close to freeway. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on top floor, on the north side. It was pretty quiet.

I know it seems unfair to drop a star of the hotel rating when it was actually the guests who were causing the problem.....but perhaps this hotel can implement the quickly trending habit of booking single occupant hotel rooms in one section of the hotel and multiple occupant/joint room occupants in another, so those of us who travel for business can be spared being kept up late by the screaming, singing, running and bed jumping children who come back late hoped up on sugar from the zoo.

This hotel is a bit off the main drag, but has close freeway access and back road access that bypassed rush hour traffic. The room was smallish but laid out well and was clean. The lobby and pool area were very nice and the breakfast was inclusive of a lot of options, with the welcome home dinners being varied, and they were super convenient and actually pretty good.

The staff at this hotel was great! There was one grumpy bus boy and a stressed server, but outside of that all the other employees were positive, cheerful and helpful.

Bathroom was in need of a little touch-up (I know it's hard to keep a nice looking bathroom day in and day out especially since they get the brunt of the beatings in a hotel room, but a little attention to cleaning detail goes a long way ) and the view out of our room was of the roof and the A/C units roaring all night long. At least the complimentary breakfast was tasty and the manager for the front desk was cordial at check-in. Hotel set in a nice quiet area.

Average all the way around. Lack of decent parking. Small Pool facilities. Breakfast was pedestrian. Workers were nice and friendly. I have to write eighty more characters to finish this review. Finally!
