Response from Andi C | Property representative |
Hello MustangShelley: Yes it is very close by. The Del Mar Racetrack is less than 2 miles away - a quick drive or walk as OnthebeachGene noted. The Del Mar Polo Fields are 4 miles away - approximately a 10 min drive.

Yes the rooms do have pay perview and I do believe they have a couple of premium channels for no charge as well. 😊

I can't remember but it's great choice if you're in Del Mar. The staff and location is second to none.
