The hotel was very clean and well maintained. Freeway access is close by and there was plenty of parking. We didn't stay for the complimentary breakfast but it looked like it was nicely done.

location

lack of professionalism, genuine hospitality, and initial service

The overall staff does not seem to communicate well within the unit. They seem to try and run professionally, but lack the know how or skill. Not what I expected from a four star hotel, especially compared to what I have experienced in other places. It is not to say that they did not try their best, more so after the fact of default. It was a 'pleasant' stay. But just very much not what was expected based off of reviews and especially not for the price that was paid¿ even at the discounted deal off of priceline. ... more

Hubby and I did our first night away from the kids here - 1 night was not enough. Everything was lovely - except the noise of the construction outside our room. When we said something upon checkout they just said 'oohhhh, sorry about that.' It's fine - but it would have been nice to have them that they would fix it for the next customer, or ?? It is a very expensive place to be woken up early by crazy noise and shouting workers... (But we were the lucky ones that had the din right outside the room - everyone else was probably fine.) ... more

The staff valet, Paul in the restaurant, all extremely wonderful helped with my husband's disability needs made room to have our classic cleaned. I have mixed feelings about this hotel as the staff was so fantastic

We were put in a tiny room in the very back of the hotel far away from all the necessary services. The handicap room was awful late day cleaning or not cleaned at all. Bed linen not changed regularly I still had catsup on the bed two days later

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The staff was so superior. The hotel was such a disappointment. I got a better handicap room for a third of the price at Best Western the next night . The room was so small the wheel chair would not fit on the side of the bed I paid a large sum of money to stay in this hotel for the car show I expected more than a closet size room. Even the staff said it was tiny and way far from any services The room was not cleaned daily and the sheets ... ... more

The Hilton in Del Mar was beautiful. The rooms were great , especially the pillows! The pool and firepit area were also a wonderful and relaxing bonus!

It goes with the territory of higher end hotels but it cost me $18 a day to park my own car! Also, the pool closed at 10 pm, I would have preferred later access as I was busy in the day and really wanted to soak in the hot tub afterwards!

Overall, this hotel was amazing because of its beauty. The staff and rooms were great! My complaints are minuscule and I would definitely recommend this hotel to someone! ... more

If you think this a 5 star Spa its is not - It is not tranquil either - I went last weekend and it was full of screaming kids - probably 60% of the hotel was under 14 yrs old - The brochure is totally false advertising and does not mention anything about it being a kids spa. - There are only 2 restaurants one of which we were going to have to wait for a table for 2.5 hrs. If you want a peaceful , romantic weekend this is not the place. If you are a family with children great. ... more

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
