I had stayed here one other time with a friend. At that time, it was Best Western. I was hoping this would be my new San Diego go to place. Just loved it. Returned this time with my husband. Hoping he would love it too. He did. Room 207 is a humongous 2-room suite, unlike other 2-room suites in San Diego. The only drawback was that it didn't have a kitchenette. Furnished immaculately with comfortable furniture. We had an incredible view of the ocean from our room. The staff was friendly and very accomodating. Can't wait to go back!!!!!!

The hotel is within 1 minute walk to the ocean. (Actually the ocean is just on its back). You can go jogging along the cliff and see/hear the ocean in the morning. In this area, there is cliff along the ocean so you can see the ocean from higher place. (In the main business district, you will walk along the sand next to the ocean. There is no cliff there.)

It is about 7 blocks from the major shopping mall where there are many restaurants and shops. Actually after you walk about 3 blocks, you will start to see shops and restaurants. Therefore, you can walk to the restaurants without driving over.

The bed is very comfortable. The hotel lobby is elegant. Breakfast restaurant is sunny and pleasant. It's no more expensive than the restaurants outside so you don't need to go out just to save a few bucks - the only exception is the black coffee. I think it's about 2 dollars more than what you will pay in Starbucks. Frontdesk is very efficient and friendly. It's about less than one minute to check in or check out. It's probably one of most competent front desk I've seen in this brand.

One thing to note is that there is free 2 (or 3) hours parking in the shopping mall. However, it's usually full and you have to pay valet parking ($8 without including tip) if you want to park there. So just walk if you want to go there...

Overall, this is a very pleasant place to stay if you want to get out of Los Angeles and stay for a weekend!

This hotel is newly renovated (as of earlier 2012). They did a terrific job! Rooms are spacious, modern, clean. The hotel has a view of the ocean (just a couple blocks away). It's an easy walk into the main part of Del Mar. The staff were extremely friendly. All in all it was perfect for the 4 days I had to be there on business. I'd go back again!

PS. The staff referred me to a shuttle service Cloud9 to the San Diego airport for $25. It worked fine.

We stayed at the Hotel Indigo in Del Mar, CA, while attending a nearby horse show. Loved the light, airy feel to it. We were given a wonderful, large room on a second story corner - very private and quiet with only one other room next to us. Huge shower, shuttered windows on three sides. We could see the ocean over the roof tops. Covered walkways outside with little tables and chairs so one could sit outside if so inclined. Outdoor patio and comfy furniture and fire pits - great for lounging after dark. Very friendly staff. Ate at the restaurant twice - very good if a little pricey. Two blocks to the cliffs overlooking the ocean. There's a path one can run or walk and watch the surfers and the waves. Only complaint: only one bedside table and lamp - bit difficult if both parties want to read at night.

Thank you so much for sharing your positive experience at Hotel Indigo Del Mar with Trip Advisor Readers. We are extremely happy to hear how much you have enjoyed our service, food and location. I agree with you 100% on the breathtaking the ocean views and how lovely Del Mar is. We are so blessed to be here every day and having the opportunity to share these great experiences with our guests means the world to us. We appreciate your feedback on the night stand. Reading before bed time is also part of my nightly ritual, so I fully appreciate the need of good lighting and the convenience of a night stand by the bed. We have rooms that are set up with two night stands. Please mention the importance of this feature to my staff upon check in and we are more than happy to find you the prefect room. Please come and visit us soon. We look forward to watching another beautiful San Diego sunset with you.

We were happy enough, the remodeled hotel is pleasant, the staff was friendly, our dog was allowed to be with us, and the room was clean and modern. They had new bathrooms which did not work so well. The hot water took over five minutes running to get hot and the faucets were not terribly user-friendly. The floors were cold too. The price was reasonable and the beach was a close walk. I found the neighborhood a little too clean and manicured, all form no function, like the decor, but that's me. That could be your cup of tea.

This a very nice place after their renovation and take over in March, 2012. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The restaurant is a tad pricey, but the food is quality stuff. Draft beer would be a plus (at a reasonable price) since a 10 minute walk to town yields great restaurants and cheap happy hour stuff.
The decor of the rooms and the rest of the hotel is modern and comfortable.
The problem, which they can't do anything about, is the noise.We could easily hear the conversation going on in the next room,( the guys were not unusually loud) and there were a lot of noises from, I suppose, downstairs since we were on the top floor on the end. Who knows where they came from?
Anyway, the noise was tolerable BUT if there were kids or loud adults, or people up late nearby, it would be tough to sleep or enjoy the comfortable rooms.

My wife and I spent four days here. This place was formerly a Best Western and became Hotel Indigo in March of this year. It is obvious that a lot of money was spent here and they have some before and after photos for those interested. Outdoor pools and hot tubs. Attractive paint job throughout facility. Upscale, good looking lobby and adjacent bar and restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. We were in room 315, a double queen suite. Hardwood floors, small frig, microwave, stove and sink, coffee maker, wireless internet . A good clean looking air conditioner. Flat screen tv. Spacious, clean and charming. No view or access to ocean from our room. I'm ok with that. 15 minute walk north gets one into Del Mar where restaurants and shops are. Staff looked clean, neat and were solicitous. I do not make a big deal out of whether a place is a hotel or motel. The features described are the important factors to me. The only issues; The lounge chairs around the pool near #315 need to be replaced or upholstered. The chairs at the minibar appear to be new; however, when one sits down, the foam in the seat is not dense enough. It compresses down so that one is sitting partially on the frame and is uncomfortable. I spoke to the manager on these issues. She was already aware that the pool lounge chairs need something. Not sure if any action will take place on the minibar chairs. But this are nit picky points. It was an excellent stay. We recommend it.
