“Wonderful getaway”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Left the resort experience to try this little historic site and...Loved it. Stayed in the Errol Flynn suite soon to be redone in the theme of one of the local modernist architects.... We were at home, really. Can't beat sitting out on our giant deck under the moonlight and looking at the nearby mountains. Everyone is so chill here. They don't even mind if you go for a moonlight swim. Although not luxury, this property somehow achieves a refined feel. The European air conditioners are super effective, and the breakfast is a nice touch. Loved our small kitchen where we were able to stock our own snacks and bubbly. Great retro music by the pool makes you half expect to see Lana Turner or Frank Sinatra come out of a room and take a dip. One small disappointment was the lack of robes and safe as advertised... but maybe soon to come? (Along with some pool resurfacing?) According to the manager, the Del Marcos is a work in progress, but for us it is already there. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for the ones with a kitchen if desired.

If you want to feel what it's like to live the swank life of a 1950's hipster, this is the place for you. No pretentious Vegas attitudes, just a laid back, mid 50's modernism vibe, with some good ole Frank Sinatra piped in when your lounging at the pool.

One great thing about this pad is that you are one block away from the downtown area, so no worrying about driving to the restaurants or bars. The Del Marcos even has retro bikes you can use for free to ride around, including a tandem.

I'll be back at this place, next time with my smoking jacket and martini in hand.

From your initial check in to check out, laura and her staff make you feel so welcome.
The class of this 1947 property is out of this world. The salt water pool always refreshing and clean, towel service poolside, internet and bikes all for the price of a room. Oh, and the breakfast can't be beat. Cereals, coffee, yeah, breads and fruits amazing!

The entire property is retro, but in a classy way, with many up-dates. Sure, some painting required here and there, maybe an issue or two with interiors, but come on, relax your at the best place in P.S.

No kids allowed here, not necessarily a bad thing, but ask Laura about the rules for youngsters. And check out their property next door...soon you may have a choice of cabanas and upgrades.
Love this place and will return.

Room Tip: Love the pool side rooms.

For a $25 pet fee per stay, the hotel had food and water bowls in the room as well as toys and treats. Our little pup Max spent the whole weekend trying to get the treats out of the Kong toy. Great style and design too

Always enjoy the Del Marcos and that you can reserve a specific room, each one is a fun adventure. Cold Tecates upon arrival, free bikes, great retro pool, and walking distance to strip - all add up to a win!

Room Tip: Only two of the rooms are below another, you can figure it out on the website if you're sensitiv...

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and we loved it! Everyone there is helpful and friendly, and the rooms are so clean and cozy. The whole hotel has a unique look to it and is extremely well put together. Plus, it is right down the street from downtown! We loved our stay at Del Marcos Hotel and it will definitely be our first choice when we go back.
