Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 168 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Next time in Del Mar, stop at the Hotel Indigo I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel accommodations. The double bed room has a "European" feel/design. Modern steam/shower with stone floor and seat. digital TV was "slow" changing channels, due to the provider (I suspect), not the TV or hotel. No movies on demand, although the remote indicated this option. October 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay...Location is great I stay here for the location! It is walking distance from great restaurants, bars and cafes. Also the beach which is nice. I stay here for work a lot and enjoy my stay. I feel like the staff is just average though. Everyone is always nice but there are a lot new people in restaurant so it's dealing with that a lot. The spa seems unorganized. But again, for the price and location you can't go wrong with the hotel. Don't expect beds or tip top service like some higher end hotels...but again you are getting a good price! I will continue to stay here. October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great food and friendly staff The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. The fire pits and overall décor of the hotel was very nice. The date night package with hotel tickets, champagne and breakfast was fantastic. October 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cozy and Convenient All in all, we enjoyed our stay. The room was cozy, but the TV was 3 sizes to small for the room. If you want to watch it, there is no comfortable way to do so. The food was ok and it took a long time to receive food. The hotel was clean and the views were spectacular. The customer service will have me probably come back if I travel back to this are. October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Restaurant patio not good,,,Seat Cushions are three or four years old and filthy....Big Problem is people let their dogs run all over the patio and on the furniture. I watched a lady let her dog run all over sofa for two hours while I drank/ate in the bar. Restaurant staff is in a precarious situation as they cannot say anything to her and jeopardize their tips. Sitting on chairs eating Breakfast on Patio was not as relaxing and enjoyable as it used to be: because of this issue. At night sitting on patio around fire is more challenging as people seem to think their dogs have a right to sit there ahead of paying customers. Other than this issue, we still love the place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great place to stay We were very happy with our stay at Hotel Indigo! We would definitely stay here again! September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful venue This was a great venue and a beautiful hotel. I wish I had more time to stay here as it was lovely. Try to spend a few days if you can as it's definitely worth it!! September 25, 2014
