The inn is right in "old" Del Mar and just a few blocks from the beach. Though the guy who owns the place is a bit eccentric (it's a B and B with each room decorated in a different art "theme"--and you expect a normal hotel proprieter?) but friendly. Since we surf, we chose the Japanese-style Furo room with an old-fashioned hot tub so we could warm up in it afterwards. The room has little Buddhas and shoji screens. It also had an ocean view through some big Torrey Pines.
You can see all the rooms on the website lesartistesinn (for some reason, it doesn't show up on Google, so I put the address here). The inn is fine with you putting surfboards and sandy wetsuits out on the balcony. (Very safe) They also serve coffee in the morning. Parking is free.
It is a nice walk from the inn to an excellent outdoor cafe called the Stratford (lunch and breakfast only). We had the "dinner for couples" a few miles away at Nugent's seafood where you can sit outside on a patio and watch the sunset--it is an excellent deal with dinner for two, including wine, appetizers and dessert for $50.
