Fabulous location. Private lounge chairs and private picnic tables with charcoal grills all for the guests of the motel. Two excellent restaurants right next-door. Anything else is quite a hike from the hotel. We used Uber to get around.
Great place to stay
I like how place have stop to barbecue out side and to sit down and enjoy the out side and the ocean water..
Shockingly terrible customer service
When someone steals money from you and refuses to discuss the incident, it ruins everything. Please see the complaints section as this hotel truly impressed in its refusal to provide any form of customer service.
We had an issue with our stay, and we attempted to speak with the front desk staff about it. Our attempts were wholly ignored and dismissed. After several (truly) patient attempts to engage the front desk staff, we requested the opportunity to speak with a manager. Shockingly, the manager never acknowledged our existence. That is to say, the manager never spoke to us or met with us. Our requests were repeatedly met with excuses that the manager was "in and out" or "would get back to us" etc. This occurred not only during the time of our stay, but also when we tried to call the manager after our stay. Amazing. Ultimately, this facility stole $200 from us, and the staff and manager never made themselves available to discuss it (by phone or otherwise). Suffice it to say, I would not trust anyone at this hotel, and I would discourage anyone from staying here. The staff does not care about you and they are not aware they are in a customer service industry.
This was our first stay at Del Mar Motel On The Beach. Upon checking into our room, we recgonized that the bathroom sink drained very slow. We notified staff & they promptly responded; we were moved to another room. Housekeeping kept our room very clean daily. We liked being right on the beach. We saw 5 dolphins playing & several pelicans diving for fish. We watched the surfers & took walks daily on the 2 miles of beach access. Plenty of places within walking distance to shop & eat; low to high range in cost. The Harvest Ranch Market in Stratford Square has a deli which makes fresh sandwiches, breads, salads, whole rotisserie chicken & other foods daily that are prefect to take for a picnic on the beach or Powerhouse Park.
This is not a remark about not liking anything, just a comment. Some may not like the sounds of trains, but it didn't bother us. Several trains run up & down the coast many times through out the day and night time. We know that Del Mar is a place Lucy and Desi Arnez came to live and play & we have to think that this is where the idea for one of their skits came from; the show were they stayed in a motel with Fred & Ethel were the train kept coming all the time. It made us smile.
This hotel is located on my favorite beach in San Diego. The hotel is located next to the lifeguard station and the Poseidon and Jakes. It is a short walk up the hill to Starbucks and a grocery story. The deck offers multiple grills to cook out, steps from the sandy beach of Del Mar. The beach is sandy and great for skim boarding, surfing, boogie boarding or just a swim.
With a stay at Del Mar Motel on the Beach in Del Mar, you'll be on the beach, a 3-minute walk from Del Mar Beach and a 3-minute drive from Del Mar Fairgrounds. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Limited parking is available onsite.
