Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DESdmtc Thin walls and electrical issues
Overall, a clean property at a decent value. I've stayed in four separate rooms for business trips and all suffer from thin walls and electrical issues. I would recommend staying on the top floor or you'll think there is an elephant with a small bladder staying above you. Every room I've stayed in (four rooms) is also plagued with the same electrical issue. The tv, direct tv box, coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge are all plugged into the same outlet. Thus, every few minutes, (when the fridge motor kicks on) the direct tv box resets and the tv goes black for a about 5-10 seconds while the box resets. They've attempted to remedy the problem in some of the rooms with battery backups for the fridge but it still doesn't work. FYI, Unplugging the fridge fixes the problem.
Other than that, for the price and proximity to del mar fairgrounds and beach, it's a good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by enzamatic Location can't be beat, breakfast good.
I chose this hotel primarily for the location and the breakfast. It gets dark by 5:30 in Nov in North County San Diego, and so it's important for me to stay somewhere that has some restaurants nearby, and some places you can get outside in the morning before work. Travelling alone, I chose this location because of the easy access to the beach just south, which is also the "dog beach". It's a nice walk with some hills available, beautiful view, and a nice rock you can sit on to watch the surf, surfers, and watch the dogs play, maybe read a book. With people visiting to walk their dog in the morning there are enough people around to feel safe, and honestly dog people are usually approachable and friendly (as are the dogs hah!).
It's also convenient to be able to grab some breakfast with protein before heading into the office rather than just breads

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FunkyTown Great location in Solana Beach
We absolutely loved staying at this hotel. It appeared to be quite new and was maintained extremely well.
The bed was very comfortable, the king room we had was clean and well laid out and the HVAC was quiet and functioned well.
The only thing I would do differently, if this were my hotel, would be to provide different balcony chairs. They were hard plastic folding chairs like is used in some classroom style meeting rooms. Something more comfortable to place on the balcony would have been appreciated.
The staff was friendly and professional and every housekeeper, even those with limited English skills made an effort to speak with us and meet our needs. If we have a reason to return to the Solana Beach / Del Mar area, we will certainly stay at this hotel.
