Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by brandolewiston Large Pleasant Room
Generally the stay at Hotel Indigo was great. The room and bathroom were oversized compared with other Hotels. Staff were pleasant and accommodating.....ocean views from both the room and patio areas were spectacular. Location was just ideal and walking distance to great restaurants and shops.
Our only complaint was that the website lists taxi travel to airport as $50....we requested a taxi service from the hotel for a return trip to airport. The taxi driver charged us $80....seemed excessive for the distance and misleading considering the website says $50 and we used the recommended taxi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jtflag Nice non-chain hotel atmosphere
This hotel is overall very nice. Many rooms have ocean views from Del Mar (just north of La Jolla). A bit far (about 1.5 miles?) from downtown Del Mar to walk for food, but if you do, the downtown had plenty of restaurants and great views of the ocean, since it sits on a rise.
The motel is clean and modern, but the exterior was clearly remodeled with fiberglass or fiberboard panel siding. Not terribly attractive, but the interior rooms were great.
One odd thing: I had a gentle thump-thump-thump in the wall near the ventilation area all night. I thought it was a neighbor, but realized there was no adjacent room there. The staff could not figure it out. I wear ear plugs to sleep, so it was not a real problem, just a mystery for one room.
Another defect, may have been that weekend: I stayed Thursday and Friday nights in October. THursday night was very nice, quiet, relaxing. Friday night there was a predominance of loud, noisy, young folks wandering around and some clearly drunk. I wonder if the bar is a popular hangout on Friday nights? I did not go to the bar to check, but I noticed others complaining on similar issues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeffreydh 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mandros 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ashleyn 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bjfasulo 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff.ace 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.
