Cleanliness and breakfast. Staff was friendly. Cleaning staff was very friendly.

Not really, I would not want to use the pool with a bunch of loud kids running around. And I certainly would not use the pool and hot tub right next to loud streets and a freeway. Nothing relaxing. The location was horrible for a relaxing stay.

Hotel was fine. Pretty generic, but, not where I would want to stay on my future vacations.

Would have liked more outdoor places to just kick back and relax other than just the pool area. Other than that, it was a nice place.

Personnel were very friendly & helpful.

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 free shuttle service. They took us to the shops directly across the street from the beach, and picked us up.

I did not like that there was no tub, unlike the pictures. Mostly I didn't like that I was charged $15/night for parking which nobody mentioned until checkout. Also, we asked if breakfast was included and were told no, but @ checkout they said it was.

This hotel was nice, but I would have expected more for the price I paid. We overall had a good experience, I just REALLY hate being lied to, which I guess reflects more upon the staff than the hotel.

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.

Location was great. It was near a outlet for shopping and legoland was just about one mile from it location.

Well food could of been a lot better with waffle not being serve in my stay. But, I guess could of being a reason why no waffles where available at my time of stay. Also, the shuttle could of being a lot better with one of them only being operational.

Hotel has a great location with legoland being one mile from its location and of course free shuttle. And as, well a outlet shopping mall right across the street for fun location.

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.

Pretty surrounding and clean.

A cardboard would be more comfortable than the bed. They have tons of parking but you have to use valet for $14 or self park for $12 and walk at least 50 yards. No body lotion. Not even free bottled water. What a rip off!

Should be rate with ONE star.

The facilities at the hotel were amazing. The pool and hotel grounds were maintained perfectly.

There was noise from the upper floors. Basically the walls and floors are thin.

It's a great hotel to stay at for a family going to legoland. The private entrance was so great! There was a pool table, and Foosball table out near the pool. The kids loved it!

It started at check in, Cameron made our 24th anniversary celebration very memorable; Oscar and Raviela (sp) made us feel like their only customers at the breakfast buffet. Great self service parking within short walking distance to the hotel.

You must have a vehicle to get around to near by sites, only the State park is in walking distance.

The view from our room was breathtaking - we were also treated with observing a very well organize wedding ceremony - what a way to remember your own wedding day.

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.
