This hotel is only 2 blocks from the beach, and can be < $150/night (pre-tax) during peak season. The room is comfortable, and the Wifi is great. There's no free breakfast, but the onsite bistro makes great food cooked to order, at a reasonable price. I love to take my coffee down to the cliffs overlooking the beach (2 blocks... More

Considering this is Best Western's top tier product, was a little disappointed. First off, google maps will give you the wrong Best Western when this hotel is searched for, so be careful. The infrastructure is dated with essentially a "fresh coat of paint". There is no HBO. Not sure if there was a complimentary continental breakfast. Overall, their lower tier... More

Stayed in King room with ocean view balcony, would select that room again. Clean rooms with fridge and microwave, and LOUD air conditioning, but it worked great. Bed was too firm for our liking but we did sleep ok. Walking distance to restaurants, but not to the beaches...unless you like going down very steep dirt trails and crossing RR tracks.... More

I loved this place and will be back. The people that work there are always smiling and willing to help you. The employees at the restaurant are nice as well and good is good. My daughter loved the location and my husband. We will be back to this location again. Bonus the pool.

Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean and attractive. Dinning was lacking. Hours of operation were were sometimes inconvenient. Grounds were attractive and parking accessible. Staff were helpful with off site reccommendations for dining.

With an excellent view of the Pacific Ocean, the rooms are great. The service is excellent, and the property is situated in a quiet area of Del Mar. Being here for a conference at The Scripps Research Institute, this was an ideal location to stay. The shuttle service the hotel offered to and from the institute was prompt, and the... More

An otherwise nice stay at this inn was spoiled by the no customer service saavy of hotel staff. We booked on a prepaid third party site and were told they only place these types in their small 1 queen rooms. We negotiated an upgrade to a king room but it was tough. Lovely pool area with a cozy cafe attached.... More

The staff were all very helpful from check in to check out and all the questions we had about the area. The ocean view from our room was a plus! Was able to sit on balcony and watch the dolphins swim by. Would stay here again.

This is a charming, small hotel in a convenient location. We opted for a room with ocean view which was a tiny balcony but lots of ocean to see. It does overlook the parking lot which has normal noise of people coming and going. But still was worth the upgrade. The room was clean, comfortable and I'd definitely stay there... More

This is actually a great hotel in a nice location -- the staff is friendly and the rooms are nice. This was my third time staying here, and I stayed in a ocean-view room. The problem this time was the morning noise which seemed to start daily around 7:30 AM. There is ambient neighborhood noise in this location, which the... More
