I’ve stayed here periodically for the last five years. The hotel is in a great location with nice comfortable rooms. The staff are very helpful, friendly & accommodating. Free parking on site & a nice restaurant for breakfast & lunch. Easy check in & check out. Plenty of restaurant choices in walking distance. Close to the beach.

Hotel's Favourite
I recently stayed one night at the Best Western Premier Hotel Del Mar. Check-in was easy and the hotel was beautiful. I loved the seaside decor. My room was well-appointed and had a Keurig, microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom was roomy and beautifully decorated. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to operate the air conditioner, so I called down to the front desk and the man helped me figure it out. (He also offered to come up if I needed him to, but his instructions were sufficient). My room faced the ocean, but unfortunately it was very gray when I visited. I didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, as I was meeting my daughter in San Diego the next morning. I had a very nice stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Dear Knani: Thank you for your comments and compliments on TripAdvisor.com. Always enjoy reading a guest or visitor enjoyed their time here in our own Sea Side Village of Del Mar. My apologies for the "May Gray" , where we have that early morning over cast of clouds that do burn off by the late morning. I hope you enjoyed our incredible sunsets.

The location is quiet and well-located for access to Del Mar's main street (5-10 minute walk) as well as the beach (5-10 minute drive or 20+ minute walk). This is a small three story hotel. The property is very well maintained. The pool was clean and surrounded by nice landscaping. I used it daily and was pleased that it wasn't over-chlorinated. The hotel has plenty of parking and there is no additional charge for it, which I appreciated. Because of COVID the restaurant was only open for breakfast (take out or room delivery only). I never used it so I can't comment on it. Also due to COVID, we did not have our room cleaned daily, but housekeeping was always nearby to empty our trash or exchange towels. We had a second floor room facing the ocean and a small balcony which was nice to sit and enjoy the fresh air. You can see and hear the ocean but it's over the parking lot and a few blocks of homes. Beds were comfy, bathroom nicely upgraded and the mini-fridge, microwave and Keurig were very handy. The room was fairly clean with the exception of the carpeting, which could use a deep cleaning. However, the walls were extremely thin and you could hear the people in the room next to us talking, an occasional dog barking, and folks talking while walking down the hallway - at 6 in the morning. Light shone in the room from around the door, I suspect this is due to the age of the hotel. On the plus side every staff member I met was nice and friendly, from the front desk to the housekeeping crew. It is an older hotel and more basic than many I've stayed in, but the location can't be beat. I would stay here again..

Dear 10Marilynnv: Thank you for the great comments and compliments on TripAdvisor.com. Unfortunately, the dog barking in the hallways was unacceptable, you can read the comments below from the guest AND from me. The dog was not properly trained in my opinion and attempted to bite me. As it also attempted to bite my manager when we went to the room to discuss the situation, finally, I was going to evict the dog for being out of control. Not the dog's fault, I believe it's the owner who should take the responsibility! Hope to have you return and give us another try to make up for the noise of the Dog. Sincerely, Thomas Mackey.

SO I had the "Pleasure" of meeting Thomas Mackey who "lives there" according to the hotel that I checked into which was a five star versus this one which is MAYBE a one star. I checked out after he accosted me in the parking lot, then he flat out lied and said my dog tried to bite him (which she does have good instincts for shady characters-thank goodness, but she let out one bark to let me know he was there). Then he got mad that I called corporate ASAP and starts beating on my door, which made my dog really suspicious of him, it made corporate tell me that my dog was behaving in a proper manner for an aggressive man and that his behavior is not 'acceptable'. When I checked into the five star I got a bunch of giggles and a response that said, "Everyone has been wondering about this man." Do NOT stay here. I have lived in Del Mar and know every hotel except for this one, so this is the first time I thought I would try it. MISTAKE. I had a wad of black hair on the ground after a "Covid" clean, they do not clean "due to covid" but really because Mackey is probably cheap, and he has an ego to rival Kanye West...this is a BEST WESTERN not a Ritz Carlton, and it shows. My dog doesn't bite but next time...I will! He must be an unhappy person, if you read more reviews you'll see a lot of problems with him and therefore this hotel. Odd, odd little person.

Dear 532megg: Thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor.com. I always enjoy a great read of fantasy and fun! Regarding your dog, yes, it tried to bite me and if you had opened your door any further, it would have attacked my manager and myself. There's always two sides to every story. So, what's the real story with you??? Regardless, have a great Memorial Day Weekend! Sincerely, Thomas Mackey

The hotel is close to the downtown restaurant area and only 1/2 mile to beach access. Room was clean and staff was very helpful. Super close to Lego Land if you have kids. Would definitely stay here again.
