Worth money. The only problem was parking, these are all "compact". HArd to park in the night. Hotel staff is very good, they listen to your problems and try to find a good solution. Hot breakfast was great. 5 out of 5 (for the money we paid).

Thank you for your response. The west side of the parking lot is for SUVs and larger vehicles. The east side is entirely compact. I am glad to hear that we were able to resolve any issues you had. I do sincerely apologize that you had any during your stay! I am also ecstatic to hear you enjoyed the breakfast....

We checked into the hotel and were given a room on the first floor. I went to check it out and saw an ashtray on the window ledge near our room. I looked up and saw 3 people smoking on the second floor and 4 people smoking on the third floor. I went to talk with the manager but she...

Stayed there for 5 nights while attending ARBA Convention at Del Mar. The room was always clean and the bed was very comfortable. Experienced very little noise from freeway since we were on that side of the facility which was nice. Breakfast was ok. Standard waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, cereal and pastries. Easy access to freeway. Overall, a great...

Spent three nights at this hotel on vacation. Right next to Hwy 5 but the noise from the traffic wasn't too bad. The room faced the highway but with the door closed and the A/C running you really didn't hear anything. Had ocean view. Standard room, fridge, microwave, small bathroom. older but clean. Used location to travel to San Diego...

We were in a room for 2 weeks. The staff were responsive. However, the rug floor in our room smelled at times and the air quality in the room was poor, the rugs need to be washed. We were in room 117.

The rooms were clean and comfortable the beds also very comfortable. The check-in staff and the checkout staff were very friendly and accommodating. The shower needs more pressure difficult to rinse soap off. Breakfast bar was great! lots of selections, always kept nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay here.J

Late at night, we found ourselves without accommodation in Del Mar (friend's lockbox code was incorrect). Called Quality Inn on a whim, and the front desk clerk found us two rooms last minute, for a great price. Lovely, clean, pet-free and smoke-free rooms:). She was an angel! The other staff we worked with were equally helpful. Thank you so much.

Located right off the fwy, the Quality Inn is centralized to all the main sites and attractions, and restaurants. Beautiful quiet area, property is clean, however the pool needs a good cleaning. I think the property may have termites, all of the bugs were in the water, so did not use the pool as much as I would have liked...
