Homewood Suites by Hilton San Diego-Del Mar

Reviewed 8 July 2010

Great experience. Extremely helpful staff. I echo other positive comments. This place is fantastic -- for what it is. It is not a Four Seasons or Ritz-Carlton. It IS an extremely well-run, comfortable, pleasant, clean and enjoyable place to stay, especially with a family (we were two adults and two kids, 5 and 7). Our trip combined theme parks and a conference downtown. The hotel was well situated for all of our activities -- a manageable drive to all of our destinations, and also close enough to the beach areas of Del Mar and La Jolla to make those readily accessible. Breakfasts were good; evening snacks/meals were fine for a traveling family looking for something decent and easy, but not a restaurant experience. Of course, it wasn't intended to be, and it was just right for what we needed on two evenings -- something convenient, easy, and kid-friendly after a long day with children who couldn't make it through a restaurant meal. The deli next door is good and convenient for sandwiches to go. Parking is easy and plentiful. The pool is small, but still a nice respite and more than sufficient for the kids. If I were traveling exclusively on business, and for a couple of days, I'd likely stay elsewhere. But if I were returning to San Diego to do theme parks, beach, and some downtown activities (zoo, Padres, USS Midway), this is the first place I'd try to reserve. One tiny complaint: fold-out sofa and rollaway mattreses are AWFUL. Note to owner: replace these, please.

The staff was very nice and friendly, no issues at all. The living room was very cramped once used the pull out bed, which could use upgrading. Main bedroom and bed is nice but Don't sleep on the pull out if you have back issues. Breakfast at the hotel was ok, not much fruit or healthy food, very carbo loaded just in if you trying to eat healty. Our family was very disappointed with the pool. Very small and the kids wouldn't step foot in the jaccuzi, they said it looked too green and dirtly and were disappointed by it. Not too many additional amenities on property for kids otherwise. Probably better for business travelers without kids. Parking free and easy to find.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Your feedback is very important in making our hotel a success. I do apologize the pool was not to your liking. In regards to our Suite Start Hot Breakfast we consistently try to include new items to cater to our guests needs. A new addition is fresh cut grapefruit and fresh cut oranges. I was happy to hear that our staff was nice and friendly during your stay. We hope to see you back very soon.

Great hotel. The location was kind of odd, but otherwise I don't have any complaints. It was close to the freeway, so it was easy to get in and out. Not far from downtown, but the price was incredibly reasonable. The room was fabulous...lots of space, very clean, even a complete kitchen. Awesome place to stay with young kids. The meals were great - full breakfast every morning and dinner offered during the week. Totally saved a ton of money because we didn't have to eat out!

very clean, great landscaping,comfortable bed, nice breakfast/early coffee, nice wine and food evening spread, close to delmar,beaches,torrey pines,racetrack,fair and of course sandiego stuff like zoo,aquarium,seaworld etc.
the staff must be very well trained and supervised. they were a flawless team in meeting our needs , and all with a great attitude---- hard to find today. the manager(Bob) was available and on top of the 2 hotels. The other Hilton nextdoor had a real nice bistro/grill at reasonable prices and a nice , reasonable wine list. there was also a bar.
In a nice neighborhood and after 1 time easy to get around and to the freeway.
I would recomend without reservation, especially for families with children, the free food items and the suite with bedroom and seperated living room with a sofa bed ( confortable) and tv in both rooms . Very, very clean. Had a 2 computer workroom with printer for us work fiends or web snobs

this hotel isnt a glam winner but the rooms are huge, and the price is low making it a great deal. OK - the things I am not completely happy with: the bathroom - no tub, and the shower is one of those plastic modules, no tea and milk. too bad if you don't drink coffee. Walls are a bit thin and the yelling kids are noticeable. Also I had a herd of elephants in the room above me.
Free Internet - only cable in the rooms and wifi in the lobby. Quite slow though.
Breakfast is free but it is carbo and sugar heavy with packaged cereals, toast station, danish/pastries, waffles, oatmeal, and a hot dish - scrambled eggs or once I had deep fried frenchtoast sticks - whatever they are! Free parking. The location suited me because it was close to my business location, but it is no where near any tourist sites - so you must have a car - and a map!
the room has a kitchen in it - which I didn't use but I suppose if you are staying in for a while for business or have a family.
Once I had checked in I never saw another cast member so I can't say much about their service.
I used thei fitness centre which was a bit cheap and only 1 of each machine and a bit small. 1 treadie, 1 row machine, 1 stairclimber and 1 of those multi pull down machines.
This hotel will suit anyone who wants a bit of extra room, has a car for getting around and is looking for a great deal at a decent price.

Loved our stay! On check-in, we were instantly upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. We had requested a quiet room away from the elevator and were given just that - never heard a sound the whole time we were there. The room and grounds were immaculate. Free breakfast and dinner (with beer and wine in the evening) were delicious and the selection was great. Only a short 10-15 minute drive to all the attractions in San Diego. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel while we did some traveling and checked out some major attractions. The location was perfect. It was close enough to be within driving distance of everything, and yet far enough away from the city center to be quiet and relaxing.
The hotel was clean, and our one bedroom (2 Queen Beds) plus Living Room Sofa Bed made great accommodations for us and our two teens. The kitchenette was a bonus for us.
The real treat came when dinner was served. I was pleasantly surprised to find our dinner came with our hotel package. We only ate in the lobby 2 out of the 3 times, but each meal was very delicious and healthy. Both beer and wine were offered, as well as sweet tea and lemonade. Salad was always offered along with the main dish and one side.
It was a bit too cool for the pool, but the area around it was clean and comfortable.
Would recommend this hotel for anyone.
