We love Del Mar and we were very happy w/the size of our room, as well as how helpful they were to accomodate our needs. We originally received a pool view room, and my husband went to the front desk upon our arrival and check in and asked if they could give us an Ocean view instead. No problem! This...

Overall, we enjoyed the The Clarion and Del Mar. The facility is well kept with newly renovated bathrooms and within walking distance of the Del Mar village (@ 15 minutes). My only issue with this hotel is that their website is misleading in noting that they are two blocks from the beach. Yes, this is true, but there is no...

I needed to meet with a prospective out-of-country buyer on short notice. In order to accommodate this prospective buyer, I had to make arrangements to meet her in a different county altogether. I called around several different hotels in that area seeking availability. Sheila Zable contacted me on a Sunday, which I didn't think would happen, and she offered me...

Among the most accommodating lodges I've come across over the past 20 years. I needed an affordable hotel in an expensive location close by to a hospital in Torrey Pines, and I needed it early and quickly. Pamela certainly went out of her way to provide me with exactly what I needed when I needed it. How rare is that?...

I stayed one night here to be close to UCSD medical center. From the hotel, it's any easy 6 mile drive. The hotel offers a reasonable special rate for UCSD medical visitors. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room, on the first floor, was clean and comfortable although furniture and wallpaper were dated. The bathroom was small but adequate. The...
