Worst Place in No. County San Diego

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 7, 2009

Do not stay at this Motel. It is not up to snuff with any place I have ever stayed. The rooms ARE DIRTY, SMELLY, UNCLEAN. Stay all over the country WORST PLACE, WORST BEST WESTERN. Travel for business back and forth in US. NEVER AGAIN, will I stay here. It may have ruined me for all BEST WESTERNS. Breakfast room dirty. It needs to be inspected. UNCLEAN. Eat somewhere esle, even tho it is free. People have handled the food and returned it in baskets, unwrapped butter pats with clean butter and on and on. If you like smelly, dirty, unclean motels, then you will like this place. Stay anywhere else. There are many other places that are clean for the same price. Holiday Inn Suites, Solana Beach, The Clarion right next door. I will be there next month and have made a reservations for less at one of those places. Trust me, WORST STAY IN AREA. DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY, SEEDY. LIKE A BATES MOTEL DIRTY

Unique Quality: Close to fairgrounds. Close to downtown

Worst Place in Del Mar Ca.

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 1, 2009

Warning...Do not stay here. The Hotel is like a bad Bates Hotel from Pyscho. It is seedy, dirty, musty and smelly. The staff does not know what is going on with the place. The mangement is nasty too. The breakfast room is unclean with used food products mixed with fresh food products. I have travel back and forth across the country for business for 4 years this is the worst place I have stayed. It sounds good but is not. This is an expensive mistake for what you get in return. Heed this warning, there are lots of places in Del Mar. Next store is a nice hotel I think it is the Clarion.

Unique Quality: The ocean view is of a construction site, blocking what was once a view of the distant ocean. They still bill this room as ocean view.

Directions: Just outside Downtown Del Mar

Sweet pool area and rooms with kitchenettes

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 1, 2008

We took over this pool area with a group of about 26 adults and children one Saturday night. Appetizers at the jacuzzi turned into a dinner barbeque. The BBQ turned into a mini campfire where we roasted marshmellows and made s'mores. We brought our own mini gas-burning grill. The hotel does not have a grill by the pool. Grilling might not be allowed, but we didn't get caught and other guests didn't complain. We moved the party inside by 9pm anyhow as evenings in June get a little chilly. And of course, we did not have glass by the pool!

Each of these hotel rooms have a kitchenette with pans, plates, coffee cups, cutlery, utensils, mini fridge, microwave, stove. Downstairs the kitchenette is L-shaped against a corner. Upstairs units have a bar that extends out for eating on. The sink and microwave are against the outside wall. Upper units have an ocean view and a balcony, lower units have a sitting area and a door with direct access to the pool area. Upper units have to exit the front door and go around and down stairs to get to the pool area. Depends on what you want - pool access or an ocean view. Also, the upstairs units have angled beam ceilings. The height adds to the room size and could make the room cooler in summer months.

There are also upstairs units without ocean views. These look out opposite the 'courtyard'. Also there are also lower units without the immediate pool access. These are also units that face out, away from the pool area.

The rooms do not have the same level of bathrooms as in the photo for my other Stratford Inn tip. The bathrooms in these units have a pine finish w/ white counter tile and are smaller. Forgot to take photos unfortunately.

The breakfast room where the hotel serves a continental breakfast is just off this pool area and has it's own small courtyard with three outdoor tables. There are also a number of indoor tables too.

Unique Quality: Close to the ocean. Quiet and really nicely laid-out to offer each unit maximum privacy in rather close quarters. Nice pool. Nice jacuzzi. Clean. Basic bathrooms and kitchenettes, but they are very comfortable and clean.

Great Stay for small and large groups

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 1, 2008

The hotel is one block from the bluffs in Del Mar. Many rooms have ocean views. I was upgraded to room 219. These photos are from that room. If you have a bigger group than just two, the room connects with a second room with two full beds and a kitchenette. Both rooms are decorated the same. Both have ocean views, as do other rooms. (But not all rooms have an ocean view.)

There is a continental breakfast included in the price of a night's stay. The breakfast room is in a courtyard just off a second pool area. You can see this in my other tip for this hotel. The hotel has two 'courtyards', each with there own pool. One courtyard/pool also has a jacuzzi. This is in my other tip.

Unique Quality: Kitchenette if you request it. Nice ocean views. Quiet. Close to the coast. A short walk to the ocean bluffs through the driveway of an adjoining apartment building, and down a short block. Nicely landscaped, large mature trees offer nice shade.

Directions: Along Pacific Coast Highway, south of downtown Del Mar. Pass 10th street, pass the Del Mar Inn and you'll see the Stratford Inn on your right.

Not THE Stratford Square!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 5, 2005

Naturally, I didn't stay here. I live in San Diego and just went home. However I drove past the place and thought it worth mentioning for a couple of reasons. First it is not located in the landmark building, Stratford Square, in the center of Del Mar's village area. It is located about five blocks south on the same road. The other reason I'm adding this option is that they offer some pretty reasonable package deals that are much lower than other places near-by. At the moment, they offer a Sunday through Thursday deal with rates available from $79.00!!

Unique Quality: Best Western has a good reputation and you can expect your room to be clean and comfortable. Many rooms have a view of the ocean--it's only two blocks away--and there are rooms with private patios or balconies available. A nice thing for families, they also offer studio suites which include kitchenettes as well.

The hotel is situated lower than street level so it gives more of a retreat feel than a bustling hotel on a busy street.
