Nice hotel

Posted Apr 2, 2015
My family and I chose to stay at the Clarion over the L'auberge where the rest of our family was for a wedding. I was surprised by the amenities offered at the Clarion and how clean it was. It looks like it was recently remodeled and is kept well. The pool area was nice and quiet. The bistro was nice, although we only had the coffee. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We had an issue with an unnecessary charge that was resolved in a timely manner and handled with great communication from the staff.

Nice location - High Enough price for the service

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: We liked the location in Del Mar. There is an ocean view, but it's fairly limited. The room overlooked the parking lot.
Cons: The men at the front desk were not friendly at all. There were 2 lovely ladies who tried to be helpful. The door sticks on the closet.
Location: Quaint area within Del mar...beautiful views of the Ocean a few minutes walk.
The hotel is a bit old, but quaint. The restaurant service was poor...only open a few hours a day. there is a library and limited computer access for internet. The men working the front desk definitely need training in customer service. Their answers to our questions were non-informative and curt. Del Mar fortunately is a beautiful spot. We did find a glass with a horrible lipstick stain on it, and the front desk said that was unfortunate...but did nothing else to compensate us. Although in a beautiful location, I would look for another hotel.

Convenient spot by the beach with a beautiful pool

Posted Feb 18, 2015 on Hotels.com
The four of us got two rooms (1 adult/kid in each) as the rooms weren't big enough to consider cots/floor sleeping. Nevertheless, the price was good and the pool (though chilly) is a beautiful garden spot worthy of postcards. The hotel itself is a half-mile walk from Del Mar village (and minutes from the beach). Well worth it! (Just beware the CA drivers!)

Best value on the ocean.

Posted Jan 5, 2015 on Hotels.com
Was a little disappointed,when I stayed before I got a much larger room, and this time with my 6foot 6inch husband, a smaller one, but otherwise it is awesome. Love the location, staff is friendly, and you can't beat the view. It is walking distance to everything in Del Mar.
