my teenage son and i spent just one night at the marriott while paying only $75 on priceline...after taxes it was about $92 which was a fantastic deal for del mar area .
i was expecting much worse after i have read some reviews on trip advisor but to our surprise, it was very good. we had 2 queen beds and they were very comfortable and i loved their huge square pillows...they weren't too soft is it was great. they had a flat screen in the room, the washroom had an old fashion bathtub instead of a deep jacuzzi or walk in shower. one thing that bothered me was that there was no safe in the room, which i found to be odd. parking is $16 self park or $22 valet . we managed to park on the street for free for one night so we saved some $$$. we didn't use the pool, but it looked quite nice and large. i would recommend the hotel if you get a good deal on expedia or priceline but i don't think it's worth the$165 that they post on their hotel website. it's an absolute great deal if you can get it under $100 through priceline.More
