Chicago, Illinois
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Newly renovated rooms and fresh looking seaside feel. Staff is accommodating with a smile. No frills but bathrooms very modern and large. Conveniently close enough to walk to downtown in 10 or so minutes. Bistro good for quickie meal or snack. Good experience overall.

Dear happycouple033: Thank you for your kind comments on TripAdvisor. I must sometimes sound like a broken record, but soooo many guests have complimented us on our newly renovated hotel. AND most importantly, they enjoyed their visit even more with the new wet bars and expanded bathrooms AND also mentioned how much they “really enjoy our new Bistro”. We truly...

We stayed at the Clarion Del Mar in September and were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality and were able to walk to restaurants, the weather was great and they even upgraded our room that looked out over the ocean

My husband and I were celebrating a special anniversary on September 30, so we wanted to stay at a place close to the ocean. After doing much research on line, we decided on the Del Mar Inn. We are retired on a fixed income so we were greatly disappointed when we were told that an ocean view room would cost...

This is a very nice facility, newly remodeled. The rooms are comfortable and most come with a balcony and a nice view of the horizon. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach and just about any kind of major restaurant flavor. The staff was very accommodating and the lady managing the breakfast was above and beyond courteous and...

My spouse and I, from DC, were visiting southern CA and booked the Clarion Del Mar Inn for a two night stay after considering many on-line options and "specials" from LaJolla to Encinitas. We wanted something that offered privacy, comfort, convenience and economy and were extremely pleased that we succeeded on all counts. We were even more pleased and pleasantly...

We took a family vacation last weekend and I couldn't think of a better place to stay than the Clarion Del Mar Inn! Always very clean and great service in a perfectly located area in Del Mar. As always, we had a great time! My little niece loved playing in the outdoor pool and looking at the flower gardens along...

This was my 2nd stay. The first time I had an "ocean view" that had more trees than ocean, but the room was very nice. This time I was on the top floor with a real ocean view and a kitchen in the closet (sink, micro, fridge and cabinets!) AND an enormous glass-enclosed shower. It was to die for. The...
