“Great Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Very comfortable, good food (pricing appropriate for business but somewhat high for personal travel). Well maintained and clean, with beautiful grounds. Somewhat close to highway, but convenient for local travel.

This is a very nice hotel north of San Diego. Great pool for kids and the outdoor seating was nice.The rooms were nice, but they lack a min fridge. The door to the bathroom is a sliding door, which can be hard to close for kids. The big negative is the the elevator is really slow. The beach down the road from the hotel was very nice.

My wife and I have been visiting this hotel for the last 7years, mostly during the Del Mar Racing season. Always clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and they have delicious chocolate chip cookies!!

The hotel provided service and amenities in-line with what I would expect for the price. The room itself was a bit small but in good condition and the bed was comfortable. However the smoking area in the courtyard near the pool ensured the pool area smelled of cigarettes all the time.

Your point referencing smoking near the pool area has caused the team to look into a solution that will result in a win win for all guests. Also, thank you for mentioning the quality of our recently renovated rooms. The housekeepers and engineers take great pride in providing a clean and comfortable room for our guests.

I hope you will stay with us on your next visit to Del Mar.

I was visiting friends in La Jolla for the night and found this fairly new property to be a very good value. Cookies were delicious at check-in, rooms were clean and roomy, and parking was abundant and free. It served as a good home-base to visit friends in La Jolla ...and the general San Diego area overall. It's located in an office park, but close to everything...so while designed to be a business person's hotel, it's good for families and singles looking for a place to stay in the area cost-effectively.

We recently stayed her for 6 nights. Room was fine, wifi was nice, pool area is really nice, outside seating/eating is really nice. We loved the location-- was only 10ish minutes from Del Mar Beach which we loved. Twenty minutes to Legoland, twenty minutes to Zoo and downtown. We ate at the hotel from Breakfast once-- food was pretty good, but way too expensive for a breakfast buffet. We had lunch at the hotel once-- food was ok, but not great.

We had a room with a pool view which was a huge mistake for us. We have young kids that we put to bed by 8:30-9pm and every night you could hear noise from the pool. Not only do you hear the other people/kids out there you hear the music that the hotel plays from large speakers all around the pool. On Friday night I woke up at 12:15am and could still hear the music outside. I couldn't believe a hotel would keep something going so late when people come there expecting a good nights sleep. I could deal with music that ended at 10pm, but going past midnight is ridiculous. If I ever stayed here again I would not stay in a pool view room.

Room Tip: Stay away from pool view-- noisy

Nice place, would stay there again. Actually tried booking the Hampton Inn across the street but couldn't use points and cash that weekend. Free parking definitely a bonus. Rooms were ok, nothing fancy. Free Wi Fi was nice as well. Staff was friendly. Easy access to the freeway.
