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.

... We waited another 15 minutes and still no cab, but finally we got picked up - not by the one we had booked though. Who knows how much longer we would have been waiting. 4:00 pm by this stage and it was peak hour traffic, so we didn't get to the valley until half an hour later. We wanted to go to the post office and the discount shoe warehouse where we also went to in San Fran. We got to the post office 20 minutes before close; the attendants were as cranky ...
... believed this was to be the end of the conversation, but then the waitress proceeded to ask me what type of bread I would like. I was more dumbfounded by this question particularly when she began to reel off a list of bread types I had never heard of. Once more I asked her to repeat and my status as a dumbski was growing by the second. I must confess that although she repeated the list I still wasn't sure what most of them were and simply decided on the first one. I hoped ...
... you stop. It wasn’t as offensive as the old days in the crew area. It used to be like walking in a fog on some of the ships in the past. One of the things the captain said in our orientation is that we want you to return home better and healthier than when you left. Many programs are available on the ship to enhance their crew experience, including English lessons, movie night, internet cafe and more. This is offered after a long day of work but the wish ...
... treat. Lauren's parents spoiled us to drinks, appetizers, steak dinners, and dessert. I cannot begin to even thank them enough. (Also, they invited me to thanksgiving in Jersey-score!) It's no wonder Lauren is as sweet as she is, coming from parents like that! We concluded dinner with paper plate awards, some meaningful, some silly, and some just really "on point" (as Lo-Ray Ray would say). I then found myself lost in conversation with Carlee (as per usual on this trip). We reflected a ...
After 2 days at the San Diego Hilton hotel, meeting other travellers from the land of Oz. We are now sailing out of San Diego harbour into a beautiful sunset. Because Johnny upgraded our cabin, checking on board was like travelling First class. Separate line for us with no waiting while the other line was two miles long!!!!
After boarding we were greeted with a smile and a glass of ...
