Newly renovated rooms and fresh looking seaside feel. Staff is accommodating with a smile. No frills but bathrooms very modern and large. Conveniently close enough to walk to downtown in 10 or so minutes. Bistro good for quickie meal or snack. Good experience overall.

Room Tip: Ocean view on upper floors (over parking lot). Front of hotel on main street (over pool).

Dear happycouple033: Thank you for your kind comments on TripAdvisor. I must sometimes sound like a broken record, but soooo many guests have complimented us on our newly renovated hotel.

AND most importantly, they enjoyed their visit even more with the new wet bars and expanded bathrooms AND also mentioned how much they “really enjoy our new Bistro”.

We truly appreciate your compliments. I’ll be sure and share your comments with our staff.
Sincerely,
Thomas Mackey

We stayed at the Clarion Del Mar in September and were pleasantly surprised
at the hospitality and were able to walk to restaurants, the weather was great
and they even upgraded our room that looked out over the ocean

My husband and I were celebrating a special anniversary on September 30, so we wanted to stay at a place close to the ocean. After doing much research on line, we decided on the Del Mar Inn. We are retired on a fixed income so we were greatly disappointed when we were told that an ocean view room would cost $20 more per night. As we were staying two nights, Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, we felt that $40 extra for the ocean view was a bit excessive so we did not book a room with the ocean view. The room (#323) that we had did not have a great view, but it was a lovely, large room, decorated beautifully. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had plenty of counter space and a very large shower. All in all, it was a lovely place to stay, but there is a lack of restaurants nearby. We would stay there again, and we would be happy to recommend the place to anyone.

Room Tip: It costs $20 extra per night for an ocean view.

This is a very nice facility, newly remodeled. The rooms are comfortable and most come with a balcony and a nice view of the horizon. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach and just about any kind of major restaurant flavor. The staff was very accommodating and the lady managing the breakfast was above and beyond courteous and kind to the children. We would definitely love to stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have balconies and a decent view of the horizon.

My spouse and I, from DC, were visiting southern CA and booked the Clarion Del Mar Inn for a two night stay after considering many on-line options and "specials" from LaJolla to Encinitas. We wanted something that offered privacy, comfort, convenience and economy and were extremely pleased that we succeeded on all counts. We were even more pleased and pleasantly surprised with the décor and condition of our room, which appeared recently upgraded. We had recently stayed in a downtown higher-end hotel and found this room to be more appealing and accommodating and much less expensive. From the color of the walls to the new designer bathroom, everything surpassed our expectations. We had a second floor ocean side room with a decent view of the ocean and slept with the balcony doors open. Extremely quiet and private despite the parking area below. We also utilized the laundry facilities and discovered machines that were in excellent shape. While there was only one washer and dryer, we did not have to wait and the front desk had plenty of quarters. We had breakfast in the bistro, good service and food, and it felt more like a B&B than a hotel, with very friendly staff and intimate setting. Great experience all the way around!

Room Tip: Perhaps a third floor ocean side room to maximize the view.

I moved to San Diego as an international student at UCSD and stayed my forst night here at this hotel. Everything was great for me. The bathroom was clean and warm, the bed was comfortable and the airconditionar was great. The most important thong was the UCSD shuttle that was awesome. I totally recommend this place for your stay at San Diego.

We took a family vacation last weekend and I couldn't think of a better place to stay than the Clarion Del Mar Inn! Always very clean and great service in a perfectly located area in Del Mar. As always, we had a great time! My little niece loved playing in the outdoor pool and looking at the flower gardens along the property which are just beautiful! We enjoyed the great breakfast each morning from their charming bistro! We also went to the beach near the hotel and were able to watch dolphins playing in the surf. Amazing experience!

We had unfortunately left something behind at the hotel when we left but as soon as we had arrived back home to Phoenix, we had a call letting us know they had found it and were mailing it off to us! Very much appreciated and wonderful service, thank you!

Looking forward to another summer visit with the family next year!

Room Tip: If possible always try to get the third floor ocean side rooms. Best view of the ocean and sunset at...
