The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because I really missed my 5 lb. dog- they have a no pet policy. This place has been there forever and being a former Del Mar resident always wanted to go. We enjoyed the beach access and the lounging area. If you want the beach you got it. Not...

The motel staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a full ocean view room. The room was very large.Large TV and electric fireplace. The view was the best part of the stay. You are only steps to the beach. You can walk to the best resturants, beautiful park or downtown Del Mar. There is plenty of parking with no...

I loved my stay at Delmar Moto! The staff was very informative and friendly and the rooms are newly remodeled. Being close to the ocean is very therapeutic and calming!! The views are magnificent! There's also a new patio with outdoor showers, barbecues, tables, on sand level. The sunsets will really start you off to a fantastic end of your...

This motel is on the sand, next to the Del Mar 17th Street lifeguard station, at the end of a row of beach houses. It's a short walk up the hill to the village (Starbucks, sandwiches, shopping), with a couple of nice restaurants a few doors down (Jake's and Poseidon). As has been noted, this is not a luxury hotel....

We went for a beachside wedding. It was wonderful to stay so close to the wedding site at Delmar beach. The rooms were fine and the bed was comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were happy they let us use the accessible room so that we didn't have to do the stairs.

This is an old motel suited for families or beach bums who want to be right on the beach. Although the staff are very nice and accommodating, there are few amenities: good parking, ice readily available, two nice restaurants within walking distance. It is noisy and needs some updating, but ok for a short stay on the water. My rating...

This motel is on the beach as advertised, yet most rooms face parking lots or buildings, and not the water directly; however, there are two lovely ocean-facing public seating areas, and you can get to the sandy beach in seconds by walking down some smallish dunes. The motel is also in easy walking distance to downtown Del Mar shops and...

Booked last-minute due to change of plans going to Seaworld. It is a little expensive for a motel, but the ambience and location (Del Mar being a nice beach town) are much better than a budget motel. We checked in late around 9pm & found no parking space in their lot. Fortunately, the front desk told me we are able...

Del Mar Motel is right on the beach. No need to bring beach towels, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, and sand toys. The motel offers them to guests. Rooms have beach feel to them. Del Mar is a quaint town. Winter ours of shops are 11:00am-5:00pm. Local restaurants open for breakfast at 7:00am. Once you get to the motel you can...

I felt like I was in Hawaii while sitting on the beachside patio. Very close to the water with families and surfers having a good time. Very relaxed feeling here. Great place to watch the sun set. Restaurant outside of the motel also has the feel of Hawaii--open air and very good food. We will be coming here as often...
