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.

We liked the place because of where it is located. The towels in the bathroom were super nice. Enjoyed the fridge and coffee maker. The shower was great, once you learned the trick of getting hot water. The bugs were a nuisance though. That was probably the only problem, other than the first night the key didn't work and had...

Ok, it's not particularly luxurious but it's on the beach as in, you open your door and there is the ocean which, by the way, you can hear at night. Not many hotels where you can do THAT! The staff is very efficient and friendly
