I have to admit, some of my stays at Indigo hotels have been hit or miss. They try too hard sometimes to be a boutique in a multinational hotel chain, which is sort of like trying to customize a fast food lunch. There's only so far you can go. Nonetheless, I was in the area for meetings and decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did.
The hotel is right off the "main" road of Del Mar. Not an exceptional amount of traffic and the hotel is down a hillside, so traffic noise was minimal. The hotel was obviously a property that was built for someone else and IHG took it over. I was "upgraded" to an ocean view and I guess from the balcony you could sort of see the ocean in an obstructed way.
The architecture is "unique" to say the least. If I had a main complaint, it's you need a sherpa to get from the main building to your room and getting lost is very easy - not to mention there's a lot of stairs to go up and down. The room itself was very large, pleasant and neat as a pin. I lacked a desk but the counter meant for the breakfast nook served okay for the stay.
My second complaint was the restaurant. Getting in late, I had asked the desk for delivery services, of which it seemed to be pizza only. However the desk folks said "our food is awesome" - Since they were nice and friendly, I kind of took them at their word and didn't really research it. Wish I had. It's pretty limited to bar food - wings, burgers and nacho sort of thing. Not exactly what I was looking for but I will admit the burger was quite tasty.
So, - Pros ~ nice hotel. Staff was great. I'd stay there again next time. Cons ~ confusing layout that takes a lot stairs to get your room. Menu limited in the bar/restaurant.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by DB148 Comfortable stay and good location
The hotel has an individual feel and is in a very good location. It took about 20 minutes to walk through the main street to the beach and there are numerous restaurants en route and by the sea. Our room was very well appointed although we would have liked to have seen some crockery and cutlery in the small kitchenette. The bed was very comfortable and that, combined with the hotel being in a quiet neighbourhood, provided us with two very good sleeps.
We did not have dinner in the restaurant as we found the menu too limited. However we did have breakfast which was very good.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
