“Amazing Staff and Great Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is such a great hotel. The rooms are wonderful, with a full kitchen and separate living area. You get breakfast every day (and I'm not talking "continental breakfast"...there are always eggs and some sort of meat, along with a waffle station and the normal toast, bagels, cereal, etc). You also get dinner Monday through Thursday...a real dinner, not just snacks, plus wine, beer, lemonade, etc.

This is the only hotel my husband stays at when he travels on business to San Diego, and I often am able to accompany him. The staff at this hotel is like family...they know us by name, they know our room preferences, and they do everything to make us feel at home. But the nice thing is, they do that for EVERYONE, not just the frequent travelers. I watched one of the kitchen staff assisting a lady one morning at breakfast; the woman was overwhelmed with a toddler and newborn, and the girl from the kitchen actually made waffles for the woman, put plates together for her and the toddler, and made sure they all had something to drink and made it to a table with their food. Now THAT is customer service.

The staff goes out of their way to make sure that everyone's experience is a positive one. My husband had to set up an impromptu meeting over dinner with several of his co-workers, and the folks at the hotel just did an amazing job of setting up a room for him and making sure everyone had enough food and drinks...even though they had less than 24 hours' notice of the meeting. It just seems as if "no" is not in their vocabulary.

I hate to write such a glowing report, because the more people who know about this gem of a hotel, the more crowded it will get and the harder it will be to get reservations there. But the folks at the hotel deserve all the credit they can get...they truly make the Homewood Suites a home away from home.

We have stayed at Homewood Suites/Del Mar for our last two spring breaks and it has been wonderful each time. We love having a hot breakfast right in the hotel before heading out for the day and being able to stay in a suite with a distinct bedroom is a plus since we have two young children. The staff are so helpful and friendly. On our last trip, we left some stuff in the hotel room and we received it in the mail promptly. When we go to San Diego, this is definitely our place to stay!

We had a nice stay at this property. The staff was awesome, the rooms were very accommodating and the location was just what we wanted. We went from Legoland in Carlsbad, to Safari Zoo and to Balboa park. We stayed a week and had a corner room (translate LARGE) w/double beds. Would definitely go back. Room 425 (corner room) get it!! Enjoy.

Room Tip: The pool was great....heated. As was the hot tub. Everything about this Homewood Suites was more th...

A large, clean, comfortable room with full kitchen and all of the amenities. A very adequate free breakfast buffet. I was not there on a night when they served free dinner, but the menu looked very appealing. The hotel is about a 30 minute drive from the heart of downtown San Diego, but is worth the drive due to its clean, quiet location. The staff members were some of the nicest and friendliest I have ever experienced anywhere. I would love to go back and stay longer.

I keep getting offers from all over for places to stay in San Diego. Although Homewood Suits San Diego/ Del Mar is a distance from Downtown/ Gaslamp Quarters it's still my place to stay while on business or pleasure. It's tranquil, clean and great service. Looking forward to my next stay. If for some reason Homewood Suites is not available, Hilton Garden Inn/ Del Mar would be my next choice. You decision will be made up after one stay. Enjoy!!!

As a previous road warrior, I am not new to this hotel thing. I like Homewood properties in general, but normally stayed in Embassy or Garden Inn when I traveled. I was pleasently surprised at this property. One of the cleanest Homewoods I have stayed at. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and the kids loved it. The heated pool was a bonus. The fact they serve a small dinner is great for when you don't want to drag your kids back out after a day of sightseeing.
The drive to San Diego is not bad. Granted we didn't leave until 10 each morning, so I can't comment on traffic before that time.
This Homewood property was simple, inlcude several free perks (internet, parking, breakfast and dinner-thats hard to beat) and well managed.
Overall, my whole party was happy with this place.
