Guest Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 185 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Intimate, off the beaten path A good value, good service, good food. Need to upgrade their house wine, though. November 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice propety My wife and I spent the weekend at this property and had a wonderful time. Nice rooms, great rooms, and excellent service. November 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large Comfortable Room The room was large, comfortable, and peaceful. I will stay again. November 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rude staff and poor value I splurged on the oceanview room, and the ocean is barely visible from the patio. Don't waste your money on it. Additionally the front desk was rude, had forgotten about some amenities that I had paid extra for upon booking, and acted as if I was inconveniencing them by reminding them and then asking when I would receive those amenities. Overall I was disappointed that the extra money I had splurged for our anniversary celebration didn't really add to the stay, and in some ways made it harder. November 19, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful location, Comfortable bed, but don't expect great service I have stayed several times at the Indigo Del Mar over the last 12 months. The location brings me back, but I keep being disappointed by small things that would be easy to fix. November 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great experience! Very nice hotel exterior, courteous front desk staff, clean and modern room, comfortable bed, quiet at night. This hotel is everything a hotel should be and more! Loved it! November 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Delightful Surprise The Hotel Indigo is a delightful gem hidden in Del Mar. The rooms are quiet, modern and fresh - request a patio room for a view of the ocean - the parking side rooms are smaller and darker. Great get away! November 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxed ambiance We were here for just one night, but enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean and spacious and laid out in a unique manner - the rooms are arranged sort of diagonally in low-rise buildings so you don't feel crowded. You are easily exposed to sunlight and open space right outside your door. Cobblestone walkways and convenient underground parking in Building 2. However, due to the layout, you can get lost trying to find your way around the hotel grounds. Also, it is situated on a hill, so there are slopes and stairs everywhere - may not be easy for the physically challenged. We did not experience the lobby restaurant or patio, but they looked inviting. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Good bed, nice furnishings, Aveno bath products! The sink is separate from the shower/toilet area - a good thing. Room lighting is rather dim; not great for reading. Hard wood floors in rooms so you might want to use bedroom slippers. Free parking. Overall, a pleasant and clean hotel. I recommend. November 14, 2014
