My friend stayed at a much more expensive hotel just 5 min up the road...her room was larger but didn't have a fridge & microwave. Ours was 1/2 the price! Very clean, beachy but classic decor, comfortable beds. Get the 3rd floor ocean-facing if you can; I left the sliding glass door open and enjoyed a cool sea breeze through...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 March 2017 via mobile

My room was quiet and comfortable. It was nice to stay in an upscale neighborhood and to have free parking was an added bonus. I was treated to a wonderful beach sunset view from my balcony. There are many nice restaurants located nearby. Downtown San Diego is only 25 minutes away and many other popular destinations are even closer. I...

We stayed one night recently at this hotel en route back to San Diego. We had a King room with a wet bar, microwave and frig.. and an ocean-view. While not right next to the ocean, you're close enough to see and hear it. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was not included in price, but they provided...

First time to stay at this place that recently changed from a Clarion to Best Western Premier. I've stated at other BW Premier locations with success so I thoughts I'd give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. The rooms were updated and everything worked fine. They're not extra roomy but average. The location near Del Mar Village and...

Charming, old, funky hotel steps to the beach. Lets you awaken to the sounds of the ocean. The bed & bedding are very comfortable. House staff very friendly and accommodating. Although probably built in the 60's and repainted many times, the place is clean, ocean fresh and relatively quiet. Two really nice restaurants next door and the main part of...

Dear josephf5132PL: Thank you for your great comments regarding the hotel & staff. Pretty close on the building, the hotel was build in 1970. We've since renovated during my tenure twice. The last was from top to bottom, only leaving the wood shake shingles which we'll remove later this year. We hope you hade a great time visiting our Boutique...

Spent this past weekend in Del Mar for a staycation. I've driven by this hotel on several occasions, promising myself that I needed to stay here and check it out. I made my usual written request for a "quiet room away from elevators, road traffic and ice machines." To accomplish this goal, I made sure to book an upper room...

We often stay in the La Jolla area to watch our son play volleyball at UCSD. All of the hotels were booked this weekend, so we needed to look beyond the immediate area around school. We decided to look in Del Mar, and the price was right at the Best Western (AAA rate was $171.00 for a Friday night stay)....

We were on vacation and stayed the last week of January 2017. Let me first say that I would stay here again but there's a couple of misleading details.
