Stayed here for a family wedding at the Pump House. We stayed because it was walkable. The motel was a throwback to older times which was rather kitschy but definitely not "boutique"!. No lobby, just an office that closes at 11 pm so you must call ahead to arrange for keys ah

We booked a king deluxe to be as close to the beach as possible. And we were literally 10 feet from the sand.

Del Mar Motel is a really hospitable place to stay, We got beach towels for the day as well as beach chairs and a sunbrella. Our room was spacious with both aircon and

This hotel experience will transport you back to a time that is long gone.... You stay right on the beach at affordable prices and in a clean room. Nothing too fancy, but it is all that you need for a great stay and experience.

This motel is rustic and loud. They only have two beachfront rooms and neither one has windows facing the ocean. If you stay here don't get a room next to the parking lot you will hear the very loud beeping noise when trucks back up several times at night. This is also right nex

Hi, can I book through one of the booking companies and still request one of the rooms that opens onto the sand. Also, how far are you from Sea World, etc.
Hi- I am a local resident answering on what I know about the motel. The motel is on the beach so all rooms are literally steps from the sand. The distance from Sea World is about 30 min since Del Mar is not downtown San Diego. Lego Land is about 20 min north. Remember, this is a motel and not a hotel so it is not fancy. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance but they are pricey since Del Mar is a fancy beach village.

"Rooms 145-147 are right on the NW corner of the property and have full and partial view of the Pacific."
"No elevators so wheelchair bound guests are limited to the ground floor,"
"Try to get closer to the beach side- room 142 was good"
"Choose a room closest to the beach. Also, on the north facing side is better."
"Ask for the water side, wow man!! I felt like James Bond!!"
