We spent two nights here for a celebratory trip. We had always wanted to try this hotel. The location and view are wonderful. The facilities are clean and tastefully decorated. A few infrastructure issues existed, such as a key elevator out of service, hot water surges in the shower, and a telephone that was inoperable. A few service issues existed, such as lack of shower gel and shampoo for the guests, lack of free bottled water for the coffeemaker, and no newspapers delivered (as included in our resort fee...you have to actually request them), but none of these issues were severe enough to deter our stay. The staff were warm and accommodating.
This is a nice hotel with excellent staff that makes you feel welcome and comfortable. You have to walk a few blocks to the beach and a few blocks to downtown, but the free parking makes up for it. Hotel has been recently remodeled and is clean and modern. We had an ocean view room which was nice.
Clean room, decent breakfast, my room faced a noisy freeway and bus stop that woke me up all morning, so you should keep your window closed at night for a good nights rest. Air conditioning blew right on me all night. No dining in hotel so have to seek outside restaurants if you want to eat. I went for business so only stayed 2 nights and was really only there to sleep. Otherwise I would not stay here.
Easy Quick Checkin. Staff Very Friendly And Helpful. No Ice Machine On The First Floor Where My Room Was Located But Staff Got Ice I Needed From The Kitchen Upon My Request. Lots Of Parking Space. Parking Was $12 A Nite. Easy Access To Freeway. Limited Menue Items In The Restuarant But Food Was Good.
Members of old Hollywood once jockeyed for seclusion in Del Mar. Now, real jockeys are the main attraction at this former Tinseltown getaway. Every summer, the Del Mar Racetrack comes to life with horse races. The racing season begins with the end of the San Diego County Fair in July. Del Mar is part of the North Country, the suburban area considered to be the outer edge of metropolitan San Diego.
