Great hotel, great staff and location. Very clean rooms with an excellent staff. I can't wait to get back there. Very easy access from the freeway. Just a few miles from downtown Del Mar and the race track.

This Hilton Garden Inn location is just a wonderful option if you wish to stay somewhere in the area on a budget without having to forgo a high level of service and amenities.

This hotel is heavily used and really is showing the wear for it. It needs updating and the elevators need a good cleaning. The carpet in the elevators (and odor) is terrible especially early in the mornings when one's not awake. My room wasn't cleaned one day and was completely missed. The manager did leave cheese, pita, and wine in...

A great place to stay. The entire staff is attentive and professional. Aly, Adam, Victoria and Jorge are fantastic and are one of the main reasons I return here to stay. The food quality at the restaurant is very good as well.

Frequent business travel can desensitize discriminating palates. I was pleasantly surprised with the team at Hilton Garden Del Mar. Food was great and the can do attitude of the staff was appreciated. Real people who enjoy what they do.

This is one of the most friendly places I have stayed at in years. Front desk staff were awesome with special mention of Aly R. She went above and beyond my expectations, and Adam in the bestro 39 was top notch. Can say enough about this place. David A.

Stayed here for business and wanted to stay closer to San Diego. This is not too far out, but the hotel is very nice and the staff were very friendly. They made the stay enjoyable. The rooms are nice and updated and the restaurant is better than most. I recommend the Juevos Rancheros for breakfast. Best I have had!!!

Not worth the money. average room, expensive rates. No garden despite the name. Receptionist gave me the wrong person's room number and key - I noted this or would have ended up in another person's room.
