Enjoyed our stay. Clean property that has been kept current. Nice showers all updated. Breakfast was delicious and fresh. Easy access to I-5. Close to several nice restaurants. We were there for 5 nights without any problems.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I booked this hotel for easy access to Solana Beach. It's right of the freeway but feels worlds away. The room was clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a short stay. The lobby, pool area and bar were all nice as well. What really made the stay worth the money was the very helpful staff. When I...

My wife and I recently spent the night at this beautiful Hilton Garden Inn as our son is a US Marine at Camp Pendleton. We arrived well before check-in time and Aly greeted us with a smile and recognized us as Hilton Honors Gold level members. Aly selected an upgraded room and coordinated with housekeeping to put a rush on...

The Hilton Inn in Del Mar was a great spot from the time we walked into the door until the time we left. The staff was amazing! Amanda, who happened to be at the front desk when we arrived, asked the reason for our stay. I let her know we were there for my birthday. She wished me a happy...

I found this location to be isolated and difficult to get around with heavy traffic going north and south. My work was located in north San Diego, the commute wasn't bad if you left around 630 am. After work, there are no restaurants nearby to walk to which was kind of disappointing. The hotel restaurant was not disappointing, the selection...

Dear Fr3qu3ntrav3l3r- thank you for letting us know about your recent experience. I am so sorry that you encountered cleanliness issues in your guest room. We have been redoing the tubs and shower floors on a regular basis, and do have some remaining with discolored grout/stains. If you would care to share the room number, we will jump on that...

Hotel really sucks big time. Hotel staff are rude to the point of being mean. Breakfast had flies in it. Room had cockroaches, Lemons in the hall were gone bad and as a result entire hotel was stinking. Never going back.

Nice hotel, but double-charged my room (was resolved) and advertised a $26 airport shuttle that apparently does not exist, forcing me to take a taxi for $69 + tip. Other than that, it features a very nice breakfast experience, has comfortable beds and quiet rooms.

Dear Rich O- thank you for letting us know about your recent experience. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. The shuttle listed on our web page clearly states 'Super Shuttle' for $26, which is correct. It also lists cabs for $50, which are also available, based on their availability. We recommend a different service, only because...

The room was clean and the staff was very professional. The check in process was easy. The breakfast was awesome and the omelette was cooked to perfection. The location was within 10 minutes of La Jolla Beach.

Morning day associate was rude and disrespectful. Unwilling to help guests with specific needs for reimbursement purposes. Manager stood by and watches her snarky and condescending comments without intervening.
