This is true, we have a great beach front sundeck (great for catching a sunset) , a large patio with grilles and picnic tables with a direct access to the sandy beach.

Great location!

Cons: The bathroom could be bigger, with larger fixtures.
This motel is located right on the beach. We walked directly from our room onto the beach. There was a covered deck with a glass barrier to protect from wind and sand that faced the beach. Hotel staff were very helpful, sand toys, beach toys, towels and chairs were available to guests free of charge. Two very nice restaurants are within a half block, and the main shopping area on Camino Del Mar was a convenient walk away. We would definitely go back.

Not worth 1/2 the price.

Bathrooms were gross, bedspreads literally had holes in them.... Rooms seem the same as i saw them 15 years ago. Furthermore, trip was for my mothers 75th bday and she became very ill, the hotel was absolutely unpleasant and would not accomadate --- wouldnt refund NOR postpone my reservation. My husband & i went on trip & so very dissapointed. It is right on beach and still not worth the stay. The owner should be ashamed....

Right on the Beach!!!!

I loved the hotel because of how close it was to the beach.. Literally, you walk out of your room and there is the beach. My children loved the fact that they could just walk to the beach within just a few steps. I would definitely come here again next year because of how close the hotel was to the beach. The room was O.K. but it was not a big deal to us because we only were there to sleep and take showers.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, on the beach!
Cons: no bath tub
VERY CUTE MOTEL! GREAT ATMOSPHERE AND LOCATION. WE WALKED TO EVERYTHING! PARK AND GREAT RESTAURANTS WALKING DISTANCE. RIGHT ON THE BEACH WAS AMAZING. THE ONLY CHANGES I WOULD LIKE TO SEE WAS WE DIDN'T SLEEP THE GREATEST. THE BEDS WEREN'T THE MOST COMFORTABLE. THE ONLY OTHER THING I WOULD HAVE LIKED WAS A BATH TUB. THE ROOM ONLY HAD A SHOWER. AND I LOVE BATHS! THIS IS MY PLACE TO STAY IN THE FUTURE WHEN WE COME TO SAN DIEGO. I'M ACTUALLY PLANNING A TRIP IN JANUARY AND WE WILL BE STAYING HERE AGAIN!

del mar beach hotel

We've stayed here before, the rooms are nicely appointed and clean. The hotel has been around for some time but they have obviously updated furniture and such as they are very nice. The only negative I had was the wireless interenet is weak if your room is not near the center where the office is located. Would we use this again, definitely, we like the feature of walking the beach with out having to drive. Several nice restaurants next door and del mar is a quaint little town. The local commuter train track is across the street and some may not care for that noise but it didn't bother us.

SO GREAT!

THe motel was a motel, but the service from the moment I checked in, to the moment I left was awesome. The Motel is not right on the beach. IT IS THE BEACH! I was able to step outside and see it. Walked downstairs and my feet were in the sand. It was great. STAY HERE!!! The room was nice and large, the bathroom was a little dated, but it worked. I would have liked maybe 4 or 5 pillows, not 3, but im a pillow guy!
