    « Great location and price »

    This hotel is only 2 blocks from the beach, and can be < $150/night (pre-tax) during peak season. The room is comfortable, and the Wifi is great. There's no free breakfast, but the onsite bistro makes great food cooked to order, at a reasonable price. I love to take my coffee down to the cliffs overlooking the beach (2 blocks away) once per visit, and watch the train go by. The hotel has a beachy feel and decor, and is one of my favorite places to stay in Del Mar. If you go to the bistro, make sure to say 'Hi' to the friendly little mermaid 'Ariel'!

    « Not quite what I expected »

    Considering this is Best Western's top tier product, was a little disappointed. First off, google maps will give you the wrong Best Western when this hotel is searched for, so be careful. The infrastructure is dated with essentially a "fresh coat of paint". There is no HBO. Not sure if there was a complimentary continental breakfast. Overall, their lower tier products seem to offer a better value.

    « Great View »

    Stayed in King room with ocean view balcony, would select that room again. Clean rooms with fridge and microwave, and LOUD air conditioning, but it worked great. Bed was too firm for our liking but we did sleep ok. Walking distance to restaurants, but not to the beaches...unless you like going down very steep dirt trails and crossing RR tracks. Parking is expensive at the beach unless you go early and get a spot at a meter, then it's only $3/hr...vs$7/hr at pay lot.

    « I loved our stay »

    I loved this place and will be back. The people that work there are always smiling and willing to help you. The employees at the restaurant are nice as well and good is good. My daughter loved the location and my husband. We will be back to this location again. Bonus the pool.

    « Del Mar Inn »

    Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean and attractive. Dinning was lacking. Hours of operation were were sometimes inconvenient. Grounds were attractive and parking accessible. Staff were helpful with off site reccommendations for dining.

    « Excellent location for vacationing in San Diego »

    With an excellent view of the Pacific Ocean, the rooms are great. The service is excellent, and the property is situated in a quiet area of Del Mar. Being here for a conference at The Scripps Research Institute, this was an ideal location to stay. The shuttle service the hotel offered to and from the institute was prompt, and the driver was quite a pleasant person to deal with.

    « 3rd party booker beware at this cozy hotel »

    An otherwise nice stay at this inn was spoiled by the no customer service saavy of hotel staff. We booked on a prepaid third party site and were told they only place these types in their small 1 queen rooms. We negotiated an upgrade to a king room but it was tough. Lovely pool area with a cozy cafe attached. Room was small but a nice tiled walk in shower. It seems they have their own rules that do not help customers or create return visits. Laundry room worked but in an outside odd shed. This should be in the main bldg for comfort. On a rainy day this must be hard for housekeeping. We liked Solana Beach and La Jolla better than Del Mar. Next time, we will choose one of these 2 towns for a base.

    « Very nice stay. »

    The staff were all very helpful from check in to check out and all the questions we had about the area. The ocean view from our room was a plus! Was able to sit on balcony and watch the dolphins swim by. Would stay here again.

    « Very nice place to stay »

    This is a charming, small hotel in a convenient location. We opted for a room with ocean view which was a tiny balcony but lots of ocean to see. It does overlook the parking lot which has normal noise of people coming and going. But still was worth the upgrade. The room was clean, comfortable and I'd definitely stay there again. It's a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach and park area which are spectacular. The small cafe on site has basic food at bargain prices. Pretty pool area on site.

    « Morning noise »

    This is actually a great hotel in a nice location -- the staff is friendly and the rooms are nice. This was my third time staying here, and I stayed in a ocean-view room. The problem this time was the morning noise which seemed to start daily around 7:30 AM. There is ambient neighborhood noise in this location, which the hotel cannot control (occasional dog barking, beach helicopters and small planes)....but the hotel can control staff noise. The cleaning and maintenance staff were friendly but very noisy starting around 7:30 to 8:00 AM. There's no excuse for noisy cleaning staff when you are paying somewhat pricey hotel rates -- if I was running this hotel, I would train them NOT to whistle or yell back and forth in the hallways or outside the building at ANY time. Vacuuming should start no earlier than check out time. Come on, del mar inn/best western -- these are hospitality no-brainers. Tune it up, or you will lose business, as you have lost mine. This hotel would be ideal for people who naturally wake up around 7 AM.

    « Amazing Stay »

    We chose this hotel because the rates were lower in comparison to San Diego, however it's not too much of a drive from major attractions. The neighbourhood is safe, we walked at night and didn't see any suspicious people. In the morning you can have a breathtaking walk along the beach. In the evening, Del Mar has various dining options to offer. We have stayed in beautiful room overlooking the ocean. It was a renovated room. From our understanding, hotel is more than 100 yo and is in very good condition for its age. Staff is very friendly.

    « nice place - would stay there again when in the area »

    it was very easy to book via phone, it has a small inn kind of feel to it. Easy to check in and it has enough parking which you cant always count on in this area. The price was not out of line -again for the area which is unusually high. I was in town for a business conference -trade show so it was a place to stay. Breakfast place is separate from the hotel and the transactions there unless you are using cash are overly complex - using some coupon system with the hotel etc has been made unnecessarily difficult for some reason. It almost has what I want in a perfect business hotel - clean and quiet - yes, free parking - yes, free wifi - yes free breakfast - nope - you get some discount coupon or something or other -the the people at the little external cafe tried to explain why they cant take this or do this and that - but eventually I hear charlie browns teacher and nod then leave - I skipped the over priced nonsense breakfast thing and and stopped someplace else for 1/4 the price. If they could figure out how to get the breakfast thing fixed it would be perfect or dont offer anything that just frustrates the guests. I would stay there again when in the area -which will probably be next years event.
