Right ON the beach!

Nov 6th, 2019

What sweet, small, clean hotel literally right on the beach! There's a downstairs area with loungers on the property that you can bring a bottle of wine and literally look at the waves or right next to those loungers is the stairs that literally walk right on to the beach. There's also an upstairs area with chairs to bring your bottle of wine because it's still on the hotel property to again look at the beach. It is small little motel with plenty of parking but if for some reason you were to come back and no parking they would park for you, the people were really nice and it was very clean! Next door is a very popular restaurant called the poseidon that you have to go to to eat as well and the little town of Del Mar is just adorable. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Don’t just don’t!

Aug 30th, 2019

I have a hard time writing negative reviews but in this case I feel like I have to share my experience at this motel. I have always wanted to stay at this hotel from the outside it is very quaint, inside not so much. The paint is peeling. The bathroom plumbing is all exposed. The shower tile is in bad shape and the tile grout is black and it is not supposed to be. There is no safety bar in the shower. All the base boards in the room were covered with dirt that had been there so long it had caked on. The bed was fine but the sheets were a grey color not white anymore. Rooms were divided up by east and west . The west rooms were closer to the beach and they were more expensive than the east, but there are no rooms with ocean views. The train went by at least 3 times a night. The two restaurants next door, both of which are very good, were opened late and the cars and people were noisy. There is no elevator which makes sense because of the motel style, but the stairs were slippery and the handrails were dirty and sticky. I was extremely disappointed. The proximity to the beach is not worth the price or condition of the room. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

~ Beautiful Relaxation On The Beach ~

Jun 24th, 2019

We were pleasantly surprised that our 2 night stay on the beach was a 10!! Quaint Room - with coffe pot, microwave and front desk is very pleasant and accommodating! Restaurants parking lot away. Ice cream and snacks right off the beach, lifeguards on duty daily until sunset includes medical center and ambulance parked on site! Patio for BBQ. Delightful temperature in June, locals I guess get tired of the “June Gloom” they call it, referring to cloudy days off and on. however, when your escaping the AZ heat-it is refreshing to have clouds, 73 degree as a high and beautiful ocean breezes. We even watched dolphins playing just beyond the 3-4th waves behind the surfers! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I generally don't write reviews, however, after reading all of the negative comments I had to speak up. First, I admit I was hesitant to book this due to some of the reviews, however, the pictures and location won me over so I took a chance. This place is everything I hoped for and more. The room was clean and very nicely decorated. The beach access is beyond comparison and can't be beat. I am a very light sleeper and not once was I bothered or even heard any noise outside our room. What ended up being an unexpected benefit was I was not aware of how charming the area was. There are several shops and rest within walking distance. This area seems to be more for locals rather than tourists (even though we were) which made the restaurants reasonably priced with excellent food. In closing, this is the perfect destination.

Cute beach motel

Jun 20th, 2019

We stayed here for a couple of nights with my late and our two kids (4,6 years old). Del Mar Motel is a cute beach motel with a nostalgic feel, providing all of the basic necessities. The location can’t be beat as it is the only beachfront motel in Del Mar. I would recommend you consider bringing your own pillows. The ones provided by the motel are absolutely awful, every adult in the group complained. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
