The rooms are nice and clean. Staff is friendly. Walking distance to the beach and conveniently located on the main thoroughfare along the coast. Easy drive to Encinitas, San Diego, and other coastal locations.More

Response from Andi C | Property representative |
Hello MustangShelley: Yes it is very close by. The Del Mar Racetrack is less than 2 miles away - a quick drive or walk as OnthebeachGene noted. The Del Mar Polo Fields are 4 miles away - approximately a 10 min drive.

Yes the rooms do have pay perview and I do believe they have a couple of premium channels for no charge as well. 😊

I can't remember but it's great choice if you're in Del Mar. The staff and location is second to none.
