“Good Location”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The hotel is a good location. We were there for a soccer tournament and the whole team stayed at this hotel. There are tons of stuff for kids to do. They have ping pong tables, pool, jacuzzi, lots of chairs/tables outside by the pool to relax. They also have a bar. It's not a very big hotel but it was good enought for our team since we were out on a tournament for most of the day. Upon check in, front desk was very nice. Hotel also is pet friendly. After check in, we were given freshly bakes chocolate chip cookies and my kids loved them. All in all, stay at the hotel was very nice.
They also serve breakfast every morning and that's included in the room rate so that was a plus.

The hotel is a good location for the Del Mar racetrack, only 1 exit beyond the track. They offer a courtesy shuttle to take guests to and from the racetrack. The rooms are nice but they don't have refrigerators. The beds are comfortable, but the real pleasure is the restaurant. Normally we don't eat dinner at the hotel, however this was delicious. They have a bar and dinner menu with fantastic gourmet appetizers and outdoor seating. Froilan, our server, was wonderful, helped us with our order and was very efficient. We shared a salad and main course and they seved it to us on separate plates, very elegant presentation...no skimping here! The prices were reasonable and the menu had lots of choices. There are televisions outside for those who want to watch sports and more quiet seating in the corners. On weekends they show a movie for kids by the pool on a huge movie screen, very family friendly hotel. They do cater to kids soccer teams on weekends, both times we have stayed on weekends, lots of soccer kids and parents.

Room Tip: Higher floor away from "soccer teams"

Very clean, good bar and restaurant. Welcome warm cookies is awesome! Very friendly staff. Free parking. Very close to i-5, but it is really diffucult to find a way to hotel during the night. Check maps on the google or yahoo before you go. Room, bathroom are modern and spacious.
Upscale residence area around. Very recommend if you have something to do in this area. rate was $130 per night
what is bad: as all Hilton's family hotels they charge separately for the internet...

This hotel was fabulous, the only let down was room size. We fixed that and upgraded to a JR. Suite and that solved our problem! The cost difference was only $15/night :) My kids absolutely loved this hotel, the dive in movies at the pool, the sports team breakfast was great, and the restaurant was good as well! The staff was very accommodating considering there was a whole bunch of young kids hanging around! They even gave cookies to them daily :) highly recommend this hotel!!!

This is a good property, maybe a little overpriced for my liking but not a deal-breaker. The rooms are nice and pretty well maintained, beds are comfortable, loved the shower. I had a couple of minor issues which were addressed immediately, so full marks on service. They still charge for wi-fi which I didn't use as I always carry my wireless USB modem with me. I had breakfast on one of the days I stayed and I liked it. They always have green apples and warm cookies at the reception, I saw one lady ask for 5 cookies and she was willing to pay for them but the front desk associate just gave em all to her willingly for free, speaks a lot about customer service. Overall I had a good stay and I'll be back when I have the opportunity again.

Beautiful exterior, pool and hot tub and outside cabanas, shuffleboard, even an outdoor tv area. Elevators were a bit slow during busy time but rooms were very well appropriated and beds very comfortable. Matthew the Shuttle guy was very friendly and accomodating. He took me to the Torrey Pines beach and to the Coaster shuttle very promptly. Barb at the front desk very helpful as well. Delicious breakfast buffet in the morning and nice bar for a cocktail at night. I will definitely stay at the Doubletree Del Mar again.

Hotel amenities are usually overpriced. This is a given, but aside from the overpriced dining within the hotel, the staff has been very helpful and polite and the hotel is very nice for the cost. I'll be back again in October and I'll provide an updated review.
