We have stayed at this hotel several times. The rooms are nice, easy location off freeway, great breakfast, and super nice and helpful staff.

When we checked in all they had was a king bed, no queens. They gave us the handicapped, located right by front and kitchen so a little noisy in the AM.

Staff was great. They gave us towels to take with us to the beach, they great you when you enter, it is about 2 miles from Cardiff Beach. Lots of great eating locations within 5 miles of hotel.

The room was completely remodeled and the location was perfect.

The hotel hallway to my room was under construction and didn't have a room number and I wasn't told about this upon arrival.

Overall good and the price was amazing for this time of year, probably because of the construction.

The pool was way too overcrowded. I think they sell membership to to the pool to the community making it unusable to the hotel guests. There were so many people you could hardly move in it and the water was so cloudy I couldnt even see my feet. Will never go back to this hotel.

The pool is very nice and most of the staff are friendly.

They didn't answer their main telephone number, at all, in the days leading up to my arrival. They also do a poor job of warning guests that July 4 fireworks cannot be viewed from the hotel unless you are in a private reserved area. Missing much of the fireworks while exploring the hotel for a non-exclusive vantage point was, needless to say, a bummer. Housekeeping was marginal: some room service items weren't removed, shampoo/toiletries weren't replenished, and drain in shower was clogged with sand upon arrival.

The hotel had everything we needed to go to the beach; chairs,umbrellas,towels,toys. Also bikes to ride to town. The shuttle service was great because parking was limited in town. Everyone of the staff was accommodating and pleasant.

The lighting in the bathroom was not very good for putting on makeup. A table in the room would have been nice.

The room was tiny but clean. Other than the first check in night (I stayed for a few days on two consecutive weeks) the staff was very friendly and helpful, pleasant .

I arrived the nite of 7/23/14, the desk clerk was rude, indifferent and not helpful, didn't tell me anything about wifi, etc. Also put me in a room on 3rd floor where I had to walk around the entire building w/ tons of luggage to get to my room.

Very nice hotel in an ideal location. You can park your car and forget about it (or not bring one). The beach is across the street and the village (Old Del Mar) has everything you need for a long weekend stay.

The lobby and rooms are nice but the property overall feels like it could use a freshening - it's a bit dated. Small quibble though because this really is a terrific place to stay. I'll be back for sure.

Great location. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and beach. Internet WiFi was free. Beds were very comfortable.

Self park signage and location is unclear and drop off area is small. We ended up using Valet parking at $29 per day.

We arrived on Saturday and a large wedding event was using most of the public areas. The hotel is close to the street and our specific room was somewhat noisy with traffic. Most of the rooms are away from the street.

Location, very decent,excellent staff and service people throughout the complex. Barbara at the front desk is a Gem. Star rating is just about correct.

If you need the internet it is impossible to log on in many areas of the hotel. Even the computers in the business office are a little touchy & printer did not work.Staff is aware of this problem. Had to go to the local Starbucks to get decent reception

Everything is great except for the very poor, and primitive They need to upgrade their Internet system, tried for over 3 hours to no avail. Like back in the 1950's. Restaurant and lounge are top notch very good views, great drinks and great food excellent bartenders and waiter/waitress/bus staff.Out door lounge and firepits are a big plus. Beware there are no elevators only steps.

Location. Perfect for walking to the beach, driving along the coast, proximity to San Diego.

The room (332) felt small, but it was okay for the minimal time we spent inside.

It was such a nice place to stay. The walkways and patios were nice too. My son loved the pools.

Nice pool and responsive management. Across from a nice little store that had good fruit and veggies. A mile or so from the beach.

Breakfast was very medicore, only fruit were whole red apples and bananas. Really poor lighting in our room. Light over sink was weak and made me look green, which made me overapply makeup for the wedding. Other family's lights were fine. And the carpet really had this slimy feel when it was wet which was most of the time as the pool was used frequently andthe weird clammy carpet feel never left.

The breakfast was very organized and restocked with fresh items.

The amount of foot traffic through the halls at all hours of the night with constant door slamming and the children screaming all night 3 doors down. The curtains didn't close all the way, the light outside our room was extremely bright all night.

A women walked her screaming baby up and down the hall at 2:15am to calm it down and when I called the front desk they said they would handle it but the child was still screaming outside my door 25 minutes later.

The Jew from the hotel onto the pool area was great.

The fact that wifi is free in the common areas but not in the rooms.

When checking in, they could not accommodate us to a room with two queens so they told us they would send a cot for our 8 year old son. We checked in late in the evening and waited for the cot which did not arrive. We had to call the front desk again to have them send it.

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 tonnes 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 hires 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.
