Hotel needs to update their website!!!!!

Posted Jun 25, 2014
Pros: We loved the location. LOVED IT!!! The staff was helpful and kind.
Cons: Remove rust inside & outside to keep it looking well cared for. They also need to clean their bathroom vents.
Location: Loved the location. Wonderful restaurants!!!
A few things we didn't get to enjoy due to misinformation on their website. NO HBO!!!!! They also say "Complimentary" use of listed items but they "CHARGE" for them. That's NOT complimentary!! They also need to remove "newly renovated".

It is on the beach!!

Posted May 11, 2014
Pros: It is on the beach. Clean. Has sitting areas and BBQ area with picnic tables.
Location: Restaurants, caf├ęs. Walking trails and park benches to look out over the ocean.
You don't spend much time in your hotel room when the beach is outside the door! You can walk to Del Mar's upscale restaurants, cafe's, Starbucks and several novelty shops. There are walking paths and grassy areas for picnics. The hotel is right in the middle of everything. It is moderately priced -and- right on the beach!

Great location

Posted May 8, 2014
Pros: The location to beach and everything else.
Very noisy. Our room was facing the public parking lot. The train and Amtrak would go all day and night. Are original room had a problem with the sink. So we were given another room which had a bad odor,dirty carpet as well. We had asked for a better room but where told we would have to pay more. So we declined .

The beach location is great. The hotel is noisy and unpleasant with uncomfortable beds.

Disappointing, very old , dated motel.

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: new furniture, office open all day
We did not stay in the room. Decided that it would be favorable to book into more suitable accommodations at another nearby hotel.

An older motel near beach.

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Location: Can easily walk to the restaurants, shops and bars in Del Mar, and the beach is right by the motel.
For the prices they charge the reason you would stay here is because of Del Mar beach, which is literally right at the end of the motel. The motel itself is a little tired and older-looking, but clean enough, although the walls are a little thin and noise can come through. If you are near the beach end of the motel you can hear the surf, which is nice. The parking lot is small, but there is an overflow next door in the restaurants lot.

Great location.

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: On the beach, clean, quiet, friendly people.
Cons: Put microwaves in the rooms.
Great location right on the beach with free parking for guests. Quiet at night. Clean and nice patio areas for bar-b-que/eating outside. Plenty of room on the deck area to sit and enjoy the view. Beautiful. Peaceful. Friendly. The room was spacious and clean. Plenty of hot water. It had a refrigerator and coffee pot but no microwave. Very flat pillows on the beds. We wanted inexpensive food so drove to nearby Denny's for breakfast/dinner, and we picked up food to go to eat lunch on the beach. Expensive restaurants a few doors down from the hotel - did not offer breakfast. The trains did not blow their whistles - they just sounded like a strong wind going by.
