Super rooms with nice amenities with balconies with a view of the sea. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Immaculate grounds, easy free parking. Has a great breakfast restaurant (that is not free but worth paying for). I have stayed here several times and have always been very happy.

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel was very pretty when we pulled in. The pool is beautiful they have a nice fire pit. Tim the front desk manager was very pleasant and helpful. We were very happy with our room it was spacious clean nicely decorated and not brown like every other hotel. The bathroom was very large with a great shower in glass and long counter with double sinks. There was a full length mirror and also a mirror over the table type desk which makes it easier for more than one person to be getting ready at the same time. The bed was very good. We were on the third floor which I highly recommend so you can look out over the ocean. The balcony is very tiny with just two chairs and a little coffee table but at least it is there. We drove to the beach and found easy parking. You could walk to it but if you’re carrying stuff it is too far for us. We love the beach with the gentle waves. We saw many dolphins. The water was very cold even in the end of July. We would come to this hotel anytime we’re in Delmar or anywhere near it. So many restaurants nearby. We loved chins the Chinese restaurant and Del Mar Seaside Mediterranean and Mexican restaurant which are really close to the hotel. There is a dog park next-door. You will be happy if you stay here. The little kitchen in a closet was so helpful with the tiny fridge and sink and microwave.Also there was a decent size closet and luggage rack which you don’t find enough of in a lot of these hotels in this area.

Hotel was a very easy walkable distance from the town, about 15 min walk from the beach. A lot of good restaurants and some shops. (As a tip just know there is no walkable places like a grocery store or CVS) The grounds of the hotel were very nice and the hotel desk staff were very nice and helpful. They had an on site cafe which was decent. The only problem we had with the hotel was the room. Not that there was anything wrong with it, it was just old and not updated. Which made it feel dirty (doesn’t mean it was) but the carpets in the room we’re old and need some help, and probably actually dirty. Overall a good stay

Dear kimcZ6283DB: Thank you for your comments and compliments on TripAdvisor! I agree, we're not located in the Freeway Access to CVS or grocery store(s). BUT, we are within walking distance to the beach and some of Del Mar/San Diego's Finest Restaurants - The Best!!!... We attempt to keep the nostalgic charm of the surrounding Village as you could see in our corridors the """ORIGINAL HOTEL DEL MAR""" that burnt down so many years ago. We keep a close eye on our rooms to maintain the best possible cleaning regiment and are awarded year after year from AAA, Best Western Hotels and other third party organizations, too many to mention; for cleanliness AND maintaining our nostalgic charm. We're certainly not a cookie cutter type hotel, we're a Boutique Sea Side Village Hotel in our own beautiful village of Del Mar/san Diego. Hope to have your return again and again. Sincerely, Thomas Mackey

My wife is in a clinical trial for Stage 4 cancer. The Scripps Oncology Coordinator referred Hotel Del Mar. All staff we met were very helpful. It is a short drive with scenic beach views to Scripps Torrey Pines. For anyone dealing with an illness that requires overnight stays, I recommend the Hotel Del Mar. It is very peaceful and relaxing. Due to our appointment scheduling we weren't able to use the dining facilities. Overall we were very pleased with our 2 night stay.

The hotel is conveniently located on the main drag in Delmar. It’s a 10 or 15 minute walk to the train station and the beach access near there. Restaurants are a 5 to 10 minute walk away. The rooms are smaller but clean and including a coffee maker for fridge and microwave. The hotel has a pool, Jacuzzi and workout room. Parking is secure any easy behind the hotel and I was able to get my oversized van in there with no trouble I would certainly stay again and recommend it to friends who are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the area

We stayed here for two nights with our family of four. The room was OK. The beds were pretty uncomfortable, and the walls and ceiling were not well noise insulated. On our first night, one of the neighbors was enjoying their cannabis in our room reeked of it which was unpleasant. The hotel had a policy of literally locking people into the (underwhelming) exercise room one at a time due to Covid; not only was this inconvenient, but we’re still wondering if that’s a violation of safety regulations. They also locked the lounge area and only let people in upon request. The café out front was not particularly impressive the one time I tried it. The pool area was quite nice and the location was fantastic.

Dear ecodan68: Thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor; I think? Reads kind of good and some just OK. My apologies for the cannabis smoker, if you had informed us, we would have resolved that issue for you immediately! Hope you have a great 2022 summer. Sincerely, Thomas Mackey

We arrived and we had a small trailer with us. The parking lot is steep to drive down with tight corners. The hotel locations is beautiful and we could see the ocean and watch the sunset from our balcony. The beds need a little attention like replaced sheets. They were showing their age and could use a bed pad or replaced. For a premiere property I was surprised that they were not as comfortable as other best westerns. This location does zero breakfast unless you use the cafe. I got a 15% discount. The service was great and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Very clean. Even the stairwells are spotless! There is a dog park next door and I enjoyed watching the homeowners enjoy time with their pets. I would definitely return to the location.

First, we were able to check-in early which was wonderful. The room was clean and had no maintenance issues. Nice setup for bathroom and had a wet bar tucked away in wall. Very quiet location even with car show in town. Nice jacuzzi and pool area. Hotel is located a short distance , two plus blocks to shops and restaurants. The beach is unaccessible from hotel even though you can walk down to the bluffs overlooking the beach for a great sunset! The actual beach is only a 5 minute drive and park in the residential areas for free parking. Only two minor issues, only one ice machine on main floor and we were on three. The other was small pillows for a Queen bed.
