Pros: fairly clean, has a cool bar with a Alice in Wonderland speakeasy vibe attached to it. Cons: a lot of broken and ill maintained items. Examples: our room smelled strongly of musk, or mold - or both. The spa and pool are all the way across their parking garage and the lounges they have out there didn’t have covers on them. So it was literally just the foam inside the cover. Gross. Our shower head didn’t work, and it just trickled water from the head. When we were checking out, we mentioned the issue to the front desk attendant - her response was literally “wow, that’s no fun” and then she made this face 😬🤷‍♀️. Yeah - I didn’t think that was fun either.

Very nice staff great food clean facility. Sink backed up at night so couldn't brush teeth except in shower a.m no resolution until desk help arrived. Still no real fix. Maybe could have offered available room which definitely was available nearby. Did offer percent off after we departed but it wasn't proper to have non working sink that filled up and never drained with gunk in it.

Nice place with ocean view rooms or freeway view rooms. Know which one before you arrive. Close to freeway and restaurants. Walking distance to Del Mar. Pier is short distance from hotel. Friendly and well trained staff. Will return again soon.

Review collected in partnership with Choice Hotels
Staff was very friendly and helpful! The breakfast was better than expected and well stocked. The entire hotel was very clean. The rooms were a little older and modest, but clean. I appreciated having a Keurig, microwave and refrigerator. Nice little balcony to sit on and enjoy the breeze and check out the water. It's not an amazing view, but better than no view. The location is close to bars and restaurants. Cut through the parking lot of LaRocco's Pizzeria to get El Camino Real, the main strip for bars and restaurants. The walk to the beach is around 15 minutes. It's a nice walk and pretty much a straight shot to the pier off of Avenida Del Mar. It was very close to the freeway, which is good and bad. Easy on and off, but a little noisy, even on the beach side. My main complaint would be the fitness center. Two ellipticals that are in bad condition, two okay bikes and a set of dumbbells that total 15 pounds doesn't constitute a fitness center. Overall, a great stay for a good value.

Review collected in partnership with Choice Hotels
We stayed in room 320. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Parking was convenient. The location of the hotel is centrally located for restaurants. We were disappointed to learn that both nights we stayed, the hot tube was broken. Our room had mold on the back side of the window drapes near the rod. If you stay here, make sure you go to Nicks South of the Border. Excellent food and only a few steep blocks away.
