Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree By Hilton San Diego - Del Mar
Good Hotel, Good value, good location
I stayed there about a month ago and i liked it very much. The rooms are nice and big, decent bathroom with good amenities. The gym was small but pretty clean. The pools were nice and large.
My only complaint was that it was a bit far from anything but hey. i got it off of priceline so i cant complain too much.
The other peoples complaints about not having "kiddie" playrooms or whatever are stupid. Honestly, if you travel with kids, dont stay at a business hotel! Find a motel 6 next to a mcdonalds.
We stayed at the Doubletree Oct 16 & 17. Hotel was clean, reasonable price, friendly staff, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Only downside was the parking garage. Kind of a strange layout, but other than that, a good hotel for being on the circle. Would stay there again.
It was great
I stayed there in July and I was very impressed. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were very big and clean. I'd stay there again in a heart beat.
3 Star Hotel With Caution
Has the typical amenties of a 3 Star hotel with pool, restaurant, gift shop, etc. Very clean, and free parking. However, there is no child playroom contrary to the advertisements; and room service is the most expensive with the smallest food portions we have ever experienced. Also, there is new hotel being built next door which can be noisy in the morning.
Great for kids!
After reading many reviews, we decided to stay here for our family vacation to the San Diego area. Our two kids ages 3 and 5 absolutely loved the swimming pools. The kids wading pool has a zero entry side for toddlers. The entire pool area has recently been renovated and is neat, clean, and beautifully landscaped. Only downside is that the traffic noise from the adjacent freeway was a little to loud in the pool area for me. Another great point for families is the strip mall 2 blocks away with groceries and various reataurants, fast food, etc. Del Mar area is ten minutes from Legoland and 15 minutes from SeaWorld. No traffic problems. Room was very nice and clean. The hotel was sold out on the Saturday night we arrived and we ran into many locals. Both of those facts indicate a nice place for the money. Overall a great place for a business stay or family vacation. Too busy and noisy (freeway and nearby construction) for a romantic weekend.
Staff was quick to respond to all needs.
New and Nice
Stayed in 2004, beautiful hotel, free high speed internet, HBO, large room, I would not recommend it as a San Diego hotel because it is north and freeway traffic to town can be a problem, but it is great for DelMar and area.
Good hotel. Expensive Breakfast.
We stayed here the last weekend in Feb 2004.
This was a good hotel. Albeit far from the action, we got a great rate at the hotel for $72 per night for a double. It's California; you have to drive anyway!
Why not stay in a decent hotel which is nice. Watch out for the breakfast as it can get expensive. But this is located close to quite a few shops. The staff is quite friendly and courteous; they remembered our every need and were great with directions.
I'll stay here again if I have cause to be close to SD.
Good location and above average hotel. Depending on the price you pay I guess your opinion may be altered. My wife and I payed less than $60 per night and were very pleased. Doubletree seems to be a great hotel chain for the price. Not as fancy as the Hilton, but a few steps ahead of Holiday Inn.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April, 2003. We found the room very clean, with a nice view and nicely appointed. We ate in the restaurant, and the food was reasonable and tasty. The staff was very willing to accomodate, including making our reservation for dinner at a restaurant the next night, giving us directions and a confirmation call. The only problem for me was the gift shop was closed all day Saturday till 6:00pm and when it did open, there was an oriental poprietor who spoke no English and could not answer any questions about any merchandise.
Parasite looking bugs in pool! Beware!!
This hotel was a joke! First of all, the rooms are very small for the amount of money they charge. The signature cookie they give you is old and tastes like it had been sitting there for about a week. The pool had underwater living bugs all along the steps of the pool and a bunch and the bottom, I know for a fact because I had my goggles on and could see them walking around the bottom of the pool. The jacuzzi was not warmed at 11:00 a.m., I had to ask them to warm it up for me which took about 20 minutes when I was promised only 5. This hotel looks great from the outside but it's really absurd that they charge $130.00 a night for these cheap accomadations. You might as well stay at Motel 6 and save yourself some money.

I arrived in San Diego about 19 or 20 hours after I set off yet it was only an hour later in the day - still have trouble getting my head round that one.
My cousin met me at the airport and all was well with me, yet my suitcase was missing a wheel since it got ripped off somewhere by some negligent airport staff I would guess.
It's been a lovely week of family time with cousins etc.

... were done with their flight, but they only rested a moment before they took off again, taking their game to new heights, twists, and twirls. It was fascinating to watch this go on for almost twenty minutes. I met some wonderful people at the summit, each with a story of their own to tell, and you could see the joy in their faces, one after the other, as they reached the top and looked out at the city below. These were happy people. People who were thirsty for adventure and ...
... there we headed a little further south, and across the bridge to Coronado Island. Beautiful sandy beach and nice spot to stop for a beverage at the elegant Coronado Hotel. From there we opted for a more scenic drive through Mission Bay to La Jolla, an upscale area just north of SD where we stopped at the Cove to check out the sea lions. They are a bit like babies.. cute, but they sure are smelly and can make quite the ...
... in the evening. But we had to hit the road towards La La Land. Visited La Jolla beach on our way out of San Diego & had a look in some local art galleries, which had some really neat pieces. Ordered a takeaway pizza to enjoy while watching the sunset on the beach. Very cute little area. Learnt that your not meant to feed the Squirrels....poor Squirrels. Interesting that Squirrels all over America have varied, the ...
