We had a great time and the staff is very friendly and anxious to help. We could hear the waves. Walked on the beach in the morning with coffee and in the evenings with cocktails. From our room it was down 3 steps to the patio area and then up 3 steps to the sand and beach.. Great time.

No Frills accept the fact that it is on the beach and what a View. Rooms are very basic but clean. You don't come here for the room. This is literally on the beach and there are 2 nice restaurants right next door. It is nice there are no hidden fees.

Great place to relax. The motel is right on the beach. Nothing fancy. Two restaurants within walking distance and a snack bar. Downfall no grocery store or liquor store nearby so stock up on water and drinks before you come.

My family and I always like to visit Del Mar and we love stay at Del Mar Motel on the Beach. The staff is nice, the rooms are clean and the prices are reasonable. I always recommend the motel. We always have fun and the beach is clean. Surrounded by good food, a park and lots of shopping stores.
