“decent hotel, poor food”

While the hotel had all the features amendites you would expect, the breakfast was a problem. Service there was beyond poor. Everything else was fine. The Hotel location is excellent: close to everything.

We stayed at the DoubleTree - Del Mar during our honeymoon in San Diego. We were very happy with this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was up-to-date and very clean. The outdoor pool area is beautiful and there is lots of seating. The Hotel offered a free shuttle within a 6 mile radius which included the beach area, which was perfect. The shuttle was easy to use and they would pick you up within 15 minutes of calling. Highly recommend staying at this hotel whether you're a couple, single, friends, business, or family.

Very friendly staff, happy to please. Knowledgeable of the area and proactively offered to assist. Only two issues: The elevators are designed to be used for both guests and the staff. That was not smart; the staff has to wait for the guests to get out before loading laundry, refuse, etc. It's inefficient. Also, My desk chair locked in the "lean back" position. Otherwise OK.

Doubletree DelMar is nothing fancy but it checks all the right boxes. Clean, friendly, great value and excellent location. Have stayed there for business on many occasions and the property has consistently met/exceeded expectations.

Stayed for two nights. Room are very nice and grounds are exceptional. We had a hot water issue. Took luke warm showers for two nights. Air conditioner was not adequate and could not cool the room for first night. Second was better. Waited at least 25 min. for dinner in restaurant. Price was great. Warm cookies at check-in were a treat. Very pleasant staff.

It's modern, clean, everything looks great and it all worked. There's a 1 foot paddling pool for the little ones. The staff was great. We would stay there again. It's about a 15 minute drive to Seaworld. Which was perfect for us, but if you're looking for a place with restaurants or sites to walk to - this is not the place.

Very nice hotel, nice pool and grounds, we enjoyed the great cookies. Some freeway noise. In a nice location, close to San Diego, Mission Bay, Sea World. The staff was very helpful and quickly took care of all our needs. A great hotel for a family weekend get-away.
