Food internal to the hotel does not match the quality of the establishment. Food related customer service was less than satisfactory. When they asked about the service and I explained this to the desk staff they promised to comp us on other experiences. It never happened. Parking costs ($22/day) were not mentioned in the reservation, and frankly there was no off season demand.

Beautiful hotel with large rooms

Pros: As above, the employees, room size, public rooms (beautiful), pool (large and inviting, but it was too cold to go in), local shuttle service.
Cons: The maintenance. Someone should check the rooms, particularly the bathrooms, to ensure everything is OK.
Location: It's across the street from the racetrack, and there are a few restaurants nearby. For my purposes it was a little out of the way, but I Ubered.
The hotel is lovely. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Because I had to switch rooms, they gave me free breakfast for my entire stay. The bar/restaurant was lively and friendly. I loved the spaciousness of the room. Maintenance needs improvement, however, The showers in both rooms had problems, and when the rod to pull the curtain shut came off, I reported it, but no one ever came to fix it. The safe in my first room was inoperable. The attendants in the small breakfast room where I ate were very helpful and very nice. I would rate the hotel and its employees very highly, the maintenance sub-standard. But I would happily go back for another stay. I used their shuttle to go to a nearby grocery store, and the driver was nice enough to wait for me to take me back without my calling.

Good hotel!

Pros: Shuttle service, pool area.
Cons: Make the bar area more comfortable.
Location: Del Mar racetrack, good restaurants & ocean views.
Shuttle service is amazing! Room was clean & modern. Hotel staff was very helpful & pleasant. Liked the bar area before the remodel. Doesn't feel cozy anymore. The furniture seems like it is from ikea.

Hi there, Thanks so much for staying with and providing some additional feedback. Glad you loved our shuttle, room and team. I am sorry to see you didn't like our update of our restaurant and bar. Its a night and day difference. The furniture is high quality and definitely not IKEA grade. Thanks again and we do hope you'll stay with us again soon.

Perfect anniversary stay.

Our stay was perfect. We ran into an issue with the original room we booked (it smelled bad), however the female manager on duty at checkin was top notch! Moved our room and comped us drinks for our anniversary ❤ would definitely return if we are ever in the area again.

Close to the Fairgrounds and My Daughter

Pros: Clean, friendly, responsive staff.
We stay here because this hotel is within walking distance to my daughter's apartment. However, it is also across the street from the Del Mar fairgrounds and racetrack. And it's close to the ocean for those who care.

This place is awesome!!!

Pros: Everything! This hotel is great for couples or families.
Location: The location is great for getting to shopping, bars, fine dining and the beach.
When we arrived to our hotel, we had been traveling all day, so we were tired and frazzled. After sitting down in the bar area to wait for our room to be assigned, we had a little light lunch. The hotel staff were excellent, start to finish. They got us an awesome room and even offered a free shuttle into town and to the beach every day! This was great because we did not have a car and were able to enjoy the local bars and eating establishments without any worries. I cannot say enough positive things about the staff at this hotel. They are all top notch, from the moment you check in until the moment you leave, they just want to make sure your experience is awesome...and guess what? It was!!!! Here's a shout out to the front desk, bartenders, wait staff, pool area staff, room service staff and the cleaning crew!! You guys totally rock and this place comes highly recommended by me!

If you want peaceful don't stay here

Pros: Nothing, the employees were not helpful. We were bothering them and interrupting there socializing.
Cons: Maybe put families by the pool and others who don't want to listen to children screaming on the other side. And only put families on the first floor.
The rooms are nothing like the pictures on the web site. The so called soaking tubs are non existent, only in the presidential suite. The tubs in the other rooms are a joke, we didn't know they even made tubs so shallow. This is the loudest hotel we've stayed in Years and we travel a lot. There were children and adults running up and down the hallways screaming and talking at all hours. They were so loud you would have thought your door was open. Then we happened to be placed on the second floor above the pool, which we didn't realize when we checked in. The children were in the pool at 6:00 am. Screaming while there parents screamed back and forth to each other about what they should have for breakfast. Needless to say, we didn't intend to get up so early, but some people have no respect for others.
