What a great place to stay. Walk into town and stroll the beach or have a bite to eat. About a 5 min ride to freeway 5 or 10 minutes into Sonoma Beach. Catch the Coaster for a few $ and go into Old Town and the city of SD. Or go north and be in Carlsbad. Close to Torrey... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon and KaaBoo festival. This place is perfect. You can always spend more but if you just want a nice, clean place close to the ocean, fairgrounds and anything else in Del Mar this place will do it. If money wasn't a concern we would have spent up and got 3rd floor for the view. We... More

Rooms have K-cup coffee, microwaves & mini fridge (w/larger freezer than most other hotels.) Rooms are newly renovated & come with a small patio/chairs. Grounds are very quaint with Gazebos, fire pits and Mini-Café. Quite indoor Library area if you want to read or just sit by fireplace.

This Best Western property is very nice. It was very clean, very quiet and the staff was extremely helpful. It's a bit more than 2 blocks from the beach, but the walk into the shopping areas with some very nice restaurants takes about 10 minutes or so. The room was very clean and the bathroom was quite nice and although... More

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.
