Beachy, rooms were clean, bathroom very nice.

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: The view is nice, small bistro, was nice for breakfast. Close to shopping and Restaurants .
Cons: Put some money into changing out the air conditioning units to quieter units.
Location: great location with shopping and restaurants near by
The room was nice but small, Bed was comfortable. It was very warm and humid, however, the air conditioner would kick on and off all night long and was very loud. We didn't get any sleep. The Restaurant was closed for dinner, which we always like to stay at a place that we can also eat on site. We had to go into Del Mar and find a place to eat. Could not walk to Beach though.

Great place for a weekend getaway!

Posted Jul 20, 2014
I don't know why people are giving this place low reviews, it was great! The room is nice and spacious, there was kitchenette, and the bathroom was impressive. It's close to the beach and restaurants. Sure it's no grand hotel, but for the area, the price was very resonable. The hotel staff were friendly. The parking is close and easily accessible from the rooms. Ocean view offers nice sunsets.

Nice hotel walked to beach and to restaurants

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Stayed a week. Chose the Clarion because it was 1/3 the price of the marriott where my meetings were. I was not disappointed . Nice. Clean. Walking distance to small cafe and other restaurants. On 2nd and3rd floor you can enjoy coffee and watching the ocean in the morning

Staff was friendly, rooms where clean and comfortable. Some hotel renovations were occuring that were slightly disruptive. Apple phone users in our group had wifi difficulities. Ocean view was wonderful.

Location

The Clarion Inn at Del Mar was recently remodeled and beautifully presented. The staff was helpful and accommodating when we needed to stay an extra few minutes after check-out time. However, the bistro had odd hours and we never did get to go there.

Fire evacuation vacation

Posted May 22, 2014
Pros: Ocean view, balcony, basic and clean. Bistro had the best bagel sandwich I have ever had too. Yum.
Cons: Balcony furniture should be upgraded.
We were evacuated from our home during the Carlsbad fires and the hotels were filling up fast. I chose this hotel because it's close to my office and I like the look of it from the road (I've noticed it for years). It's small, quaint and well located for coastal Del Mar eateries and beach walks. Really nice staff. Wish I would have gotten a fire discount, but the overall price wasn't bad.

Horrible hotel

Posted May 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
Reviews suggested this property was great after their renovation....it did not meet my expectations at all. Reno looks like a retirement community and the ocean view room looked out over the laundry shack. Horrible...tried to cancel but hotel would not refund...do not waist your money here!

brilliant remodel

Posted May 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff is gracious, the room lovely, well decorated, the bed comfortable, excellent bath plus a wet bar in the room, and and an ocean view as promised, We enjoyed the poo,l the library, and the Bistro meals, especially the Creme Brulee French toast. The location isn't as close to the activity in town or restaurants as we would have preferred, but our room and the rest of the amenities made up for the distance. We have stayed at the Inn before the remodel, and the new accommodations are beautifully done.
