“Money well spent! I will definitely stay here again and again :)”
Reviewed 26 March 2011

My partner booked this hotel through Priceline and he snagged an awesome deal (way cheaper than the price listed on the hotel's website). It was a small establishment that was brightly decorated, very much a tropical feel. The front desk employees were friendly and accommodating throughout the duration of our trip. The room decor mimicked the exterior of the hotel, colorful, bright, and not too busy. The room and the bathroom were clean and the closet was large! I immediately felt comfortable in this space...it was definitely tempting to want to hibernate in our room during our entire stay, but I had force myself out of the room! Furthermore, the location cannot be beat! We were near all the touristy spots and delicious restaurants :) My positive first-impression of this hotel definitely started our trip on the right foot.

Be sure to check out their website for a list of all their amenities.

I'm planning on going back to San Francisco in a couple of months and, if I could get the same rate as we got for this trip, I will definitely stay here again.

We ended up comparing every other hotel to the Hotel Del Sol on our trip. Great location and this hotel did EVERYTHING right!

OK so if a place is great and you love it, do you tell everyone so they go there, make it impossible to get in the next time??? I mulled over this again and again and decided that I needed to let others know that the staff at del Sol does an OUTSTANDING job and that they really do deserve kudos. We are simple travelers: need a clean room, good location, fair price and we hate bad smelling hotels. After reading all of the reviews here we were not disappointed in the slightest. Hotel del Sol is near a busy street but the noise is not at all evident. The staff is gracious, friendly and the morning breakfast was an extra added treat. I really really wanted to give this hotel 5 stars but some others might think I over-rate because this hotel is not over the top glamorous. What I like in a hotel might not be what someone else likes. Thus I rate this as 4.5 stars. But if you want an overpriced hotel with extras that you will never use, go elsewhere. If you want great value, nice and honest staff members, superb location and, oh right, free parking, then stay here. I will DEFINITELY be back!!!

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel and are in love! Every time we come into town this is our hotel. Love the free parking and location. Lots of shops and restaurants to choose from - all walking distance away. Highly recommend staying here for a night or a week.
