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.

... the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. It was right next to a very loud street where the trucks never stopped running all night. We barely fit on the twin size bed. There was no bathroom and the carpets were badly stained.
We woke up early in the morning and I went to get Claire some flowers, coffee and a card for her 39th birthday. I met Claire a week before she turned 36, so it is crazy to think she was 35 then and ...
... bit about science but makes it fun. For us 2 adults however it got a bit boring, very quickly. We did watch the Hidden universe at the IMAX which was quite good - definitely the best bit to say the least!
After having some dinner at TGI Fridays we decided to call it a day and give our legs a bit of a rest. Another long day tomorrow as we are driving back to LA to drop the car off but hope to go via La Jolla to see some more sights.
... being at SDCC to cover my 30/30 list!! Unfortunately, the photo plan didn't quite work, the place was CHAOS and it was impossible to ask people for a photo as they all seemed very determined to get somewhere. Got some photos of people and the crowds and found a great beer spot for people watching right in the middle if the crowds! It was amazing to see but was also a big fat reminder that I didn't have tickets :( I did finally get to try a Fish Taco though, sooooo ...
... across from Petco Park. The beers were not anything special but it was a fun place to check out and we basically had the bar to ourselves. That night we met a very old friend of mine, Erin, who I haven’t seen more than once since high school. We enjoyed a tasty dinner of meatball sliders and amazing sides (brussel sprouts with bacon, mac and cheese, sweet potato fries) at Swine and Soda, and then wandered next door to Polite Provisions to have a drink ...
... 1/2014 Today we got up and had to pack and check out of our room in San Diego. Mum & Dad had organised to go to the Library! I didn't really want to go, but they said I had to. The Valet at the hotel even told me to have a great day at the "library". We hopped in a taxi and off we went. When we were lining up to get in it didn't look like a library , in fact it looked a lot like SEA WORLD. Wow, Orca Orca Orcas , it was just ORCASOME ! I was a ...
