"Amazing place to stay!"
L'Auberge is an amazing place to stay. The staff is always extremely helpful and courteous. The hotel has wonderful views of the ocean and everything about the place is first class. I love staying here and always wish I could stay longer. We stayed in a newly renovated room and was very pleased. Can't wait to go back!
"Great place for the money"
Great rooms with space. Great views from the rooms. Pool looks out to the ocean. Great place to talk with friends by the fire pit. Great food around the hotel. Easy to get to from the airport. Staff is friendly, and prompt.
Everything about this hotel is wonderful, from the property itself, to the professional and very helpful staff, to the rooms, views and food. I was there for a week during the Xmas holidays, and my family and I had a wonderful stay in all ways.
"Perfect Location, Great Beaches a bit aged but nice"
We live in the area and just wanted a bit of a pampered get away. We do go here for light snacks and to enjoy the lights around Christmas time. This time we stayed over night. The room was nice with all of the little touches you would expect, nice fluffy towels, nice linens on the bed. The hotel as others have mentioned is showing it's age and they do have lots of extra charges For us to just stay the night resort fees were not appreciated. BUT, the location is perfect. We did notice the staff was friendly but seemed hurried. I do think they were very busy. Also when there is a wedding or event it can be very loud and the inner courtyard can get very crowded. Staying here make sure you ask for a room away from it all. The beautiful windows that allow great views can also allow the music and noise also. Those here for weddings will most likely not notice. :) Overall, it was fun to stay for a night, but probably was more elegant just a short time ago..
"Charming hotel with challenges "
Hotel is very charming in style, has a great location in the heart of Del Mar about a block and a half from the beach, and has wonderful employees...everyone we came into contact with was friendly and kind. These attributes would garner 5 stars in my book. However... Outrageous fees: $35 parking fee....$35 resort fee...and the most offensive of all is a 2% "surcharge" on all food and drinks...on the bottom of each receipt it says that this unexplainable charge goes to the hotel and not the employees...waaaa' How is this legal...to just add a charge in to the bill for what' I guess I'd understand it if it went to the employees and that's part of a tip...but this is just a way for the hotel to make more profit in the most misleading way imaginable! Terrible maintenance: The condition of the hotel is the worst of any luxury hotel I've ever stayed at. Lovely property that is charming at first glance, but paint is chipping, fabric worn in places, elevators dirty, bathroom fans full of lint stuff, areas rusted ...just not a well cared for property. Restaurant old style: Decor is restaurant not current and as a result (') it was pretty dead when we were there. So in summary, charming property with good staff in a nice location that is in big need of TLC and an attitude adjustment in how it rips off guests with fees...some announced and some hidden.
