Goodbye Chert Drive

A travel blog entry by europe2.0


... is almost over. We are completely exhausted since we were up at 6:30am this morning for a triple-check and final sorting.

Our 10 months on Chert Drive have been great and I will truly miss the wonderful neighbors and friends we have met. I wish we had more time here in San Diego but everything happens for a reason and we couldn’t be happier about starting our new life in ...

Living the Good Life in Del Mar, California

... about called Zel’s We sat outdoors (as we usually do) and enjoyed the patio with only one other couple. What’s nice about most of the restaurants in Del Mar, they are open from lunch until dinner. You can eat at 4p and have the full menu to choose from. We had heard their mussels were particularly good, prepared in a coconut curry broth as opposed to the traditional lemon garlic. I ...

San Diego - Welcome to the West Coast

A travel blog entry by jocelyn_


... farmer's markets. There were so many different food stalls I was dismayed at the thought of having to choose what to eat! I ended up with some delicious West African food, sitting on the beach, watching a stack of surfers in the company of some more new found friends for the day. I had set myself a goal while on the west coast to watch the sun set over the ocean and after failing miserably at my previous goal of watching the sun rise in Miami, I was determined ...

    Pleasant Cottage-like experience

    Nice Sea-view (sleeping with the sound of crashing waves), about 7min walk to the beach.
    Great service staff and quaint cottage-like deco of rooms with mini kitchenettes.
    Rooms and toilet are clean and spacious.
    No in-house restaurant though, but a short walk to quite a few nearby.

    Disappointed at Del Mar Inn


    Disappointed in this hotel, but have stayed in worse. We were to have a 3rd floor remodeled room but were given a 2nd floor room with very old decor. The bathroom desperately needs updated. The outside and grounds were very nice. The hotel is only a block or so from the beach but ACCESS to the beach is 6 blocks which took us about 15 minutes to walk. We had an ocean view room which is decent but you have to look over several buildings and a parking lot. The breakfast is pastries brought to your room and it was pretty good. The beach here is very nice but the shopping and dining is quite expensive. Parking is very limited so you have to walk everywhere.

    Great Stay for the races


    A breath of fresh air from Palm Springs. Very nice staff, ask for peggy or tim, they will take great care of you. Compared to other hotels in town, this was the best. Nice little inn, can walk or drive to most anything in area. Had a great time at the races. Will stay there again & again. Ed

    Bad stay at Del Mar Beach


    The rooms smelled of rotten tennis shoes

    Could not see ocean from any room

    and the rooms need to be re-modeled

    Or at least tear down this hotel and re-build

    Very over priced

    Stay was good


    Had visiting Family members from San Francisco, they said they loved the place. They have two boys, 11 and 13, who played in the pool most of the day or went to the beach. Was concerned about the rate being so low due to remodeling, $99.00. But, felt it was worth every penny. Have read some of the other comments, doesn't seem like we're talking about the same place? Little noise now and then, but other than the workers around the place, everything seemed fine. Del Mar is a great little village to visit, but seems to be more for adults.

    Awesome Hotel!!!


    We stayed at this wonderful, cozy hotel to celebrate my 40th wedding anniversary and had the best service and an awesome stay. We were on the third floor, our room was large and spacious, the bed was comfortable, beautiful european decor and the view was incredible. This hotel is just adorable and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were able to walk to enjoy the sights and sounds of Del Mar. I must say that I was extremely pleased with my entire stay and my husband and I are planning to return to this lovely "jewel" of a hotel whenever we visit San Diego. We have told everyone of our friends about this delightful inn at the beach!!

    Not worth the cash


    After reading the reviews, I was pretty hesitant to try this hotel, but I was visiting friends, and I needed a place to stay. Del Mar Inn was the least expensive option I could find on short notice, but the rate with taxes was still $150/night.

    Remodeled rooms were very nice


    We stayed one night, February 17, 2004, and thought the room was very nice. We had a third floor ocean view room, and everything was new in the room. (I'm not sure what the other reviewers were talking about!) The bed was new and firm, the bathroom was clean with all new fixtures, and the furnishings were very nice. There was a separate sink and dressing area in one corner of the room, and a small refrigerator. The heat worked well. We had no trouble with the staff or the breakfast.

    Horrible and service unproffesional


    The beds were nasty and horrible you kind of fell into the middle. It needs to be remodled or torn down I would hope to be rebuilt its ugly.

    The rooms smell the garden view is a view of some ugly trees and the busy street and the view for the ocean is over a garage and a bounch of other hotels. The people are very rude and unproffesional.

    I wish you could rate it in the negatives

    False Advertising!!!Beware!


    I put my parents in this hotel because I live in the area and it looked pretty from the outside. The "ocean view" turned out to be mainly a view of the parking lot and a glimpse of the ocean between lots of trees and buildings in between. There are two beaches near the hotel but they are not close enough to walk to, esp. for older guests. Also, the location of the hotel is on a cliff so you'll have to hike a long trail on a cliff to get to the ocean. There are no sidewalks on the busy highway street that leads to this trail making it more difficult to walk. The service is very poor. They advertise a continental breakfast delivered to your door but you have to ask (beg) for it the night before, and this does not guarantee that you will even get it. My parents did not, even after they called twice! I had to call the front desk and complain that they were not getting their breakfast. When they finally did, it was just a croissant, coffee and some juice.

    Nice location but...


    This is a very nice location and our room had a view of the ocean which is about a block down the street. We did encounter some minor problems with the room, which they said was one of their renovated rooms....hmmmm.... The toilet wouldn't flush but maintenance took care of it immediately. Then I used my blow dryer and my husband used the little blow dryer provided in the bathroom....and we blew a fuse! So, from then on it was one blow dryer at a time. Maintenance again was on the job immediately to fix the fuse situation. We couldn't use the security lock on our door because it appeared someone had at one time kicked the door in and the molding was broken and the lock was gone.
