We had a great time in SD. Nice clean and big room

Room had plenty of space. Ours had a balcony overlooking the pool area. Very quiet which of course was a big plus. Only down side for me was the mattress. It was too firm for my 50 year old bad back. My wife’s only complaint was that the bathroom area didn’t have enough space for her stuff and that there was no breakfast in the morning. Other than that it was great and a lot better than some hotels we’ve stayed at that cost 3 times more.

This property is a great value! My husband works while we travel, so we usually book a one-bedroom suite, and this hotel offered a large space for an incredible price. Although not fancy, it was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here. Our only critique is slow wifi with limited devices allowed per room.

Loved the size of our room. So spacious and perfect for two people who aren’t sharing a bed

Loved the location. Very close to the beach and right across from the racetrack. Close to many food options as well. Room was very spacious, especially the 2 room suite. It has 2 bathrooms too.

Rooms are dated, but pool area is fantastic and brand-new. Towels and beds are clean, comfortable, and folded/tucked well. Location is incredibly convenient to the Del Mar Fairgrounds, I-5, the beach, La Jolla, UTC, and the coast in general. Only downside is the aforementioned room furnishings and finishings. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Close to interstate. Restaurants close. Activities close. Under construction 😔. Noisey. Attempted to contact the front desk 3 times with no answer before arrival. Checking out, the guy at the front desk was not familiar with the discount if another booking was done. We had to explain it to him. After ~20 minutes a $20 discount was offered. Not sure if that was a "true" discount or not!

My wife fell in love with the place and so did I .We will stay here again the staff were so Nice and helpful

Location is undergoing a major face lift. But no excuse for rooms to be so old. 1980 style furniture and mattress has seen better days

A little worn down and retro but overall still a beautiful place. Staff was excellent. Pullout not super comfy but ok

Pictures on the internet make this hotel looks bright and new, in reality it is old and uninviting.. The furniture in the room was dated and not comfortable, there was a stain on the couch that made it uninviting.. the carpet old, and the patio cover makes you feel like you are in a cave.. Will never reconsider staying there again...

Arrived early at Winner's Circle after a major surgery and asked for an early check-in to lie down. Jessica at the desk was very accommodating. The room type I originally booked was not available that early but she placed my husband and I in a lovely room in the resort. Thank you, Jessica, for your compassion while I was checking in. Great pool and Jaccuzzi and BBQ area.
