Went to L'Auberge Del Mar on a business trip. Great location. Short walk to beach. The room was done in a beach motif and was light and airy. Very quiet and very comfortable. Meeting room was great. Food at meetings was also very good. Ate all meals on deck and could see ocean in the background; not the waves. In order to see waves, need to walk across a roadway by some condos. View from there from cliff is spectacular. There is a nice bar in the lobby for gathering with colleagues. Had an excellent dinner at restaurant across the street. Starbucks is located across the street as well. Excellent restaurant on beach as well that is walking distance from hotel. Coupon given at front desk for free app or dessert. Hotel is decorated with very old pictures showing hotels long history. In a word, I'd describe this hotel as charming.
Hidden charges for room and for parking... $20 to rent a movie in-room... Despite the excessive charges (that were not disclosed upon check-in), it's a great spot and we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this location but suggest they update their policy about the excessive fees.
Overall, we were very happy with our accommodations and the hotel's location in Del Mar. We were within a short walking distance from other restaurants and coffee shops. The service, especially from the concierge and parking attendants was excellent. The spa service was good, if a little expensive.
"Some bad rooms & poor service at Coastline for breakfast"
Lovely property and beautiful location; horrible rude service by Coastline manager/hostess and waitress. Asked to move inside with all our food since we ordered our eggs from inside. Tables were empty outside! Seriously' Ask for better room since you can get a 2nd floor room with a balcony looking literally at a wall. Rollaway beds are NOT acceptable substitute for two double beds when they move you to a king bed. They’re hard and very uncomfortable. They said it was a complimentary upgraded room from a horrible closet to same size room with a garden terrace which is what I paid for and was supposed to get to begin with. If you’re expected to switch from your two double beds to a lesser situation they should provide you with a real upgraded room. And shower head fell out of socket and hit my husband on head while he was showering. All this was told to front desk upon checkout and throughout our stay and we got apologies with no action to make things better. For the money and quality of the hotel you’d expect better service. Good to know. Not sure I’d return. If you get a better room and didn’t have rude staff at breakfast it could have been a delightful stay. Jokebeth (barista) was awesome and should get more help with all she’s has to do requiring guests to wait. Offer free self-service coffee. How hard can it be' Valet staff is superb and nice. Bar was wonderful in evening. King bed was very comfortable. Just don’t think the rollaway will provide a good night’s sleep. Management and front desk staff need more customer service training. The real employees (man who helped us move inside with our food), barista, cleaning ladies, bartenders, valet were all the nice, friendly and well-trained staff. Thank you to them!
"a little disappointed"
Wonderful location. Good happy hour. Enjoyed tennis courts. I felt the cost did not justify the quality of service offered. The ability to walk to the ocean easily and feel safe was the highlight of the stay. Thought the valet service was exceptional. Thought the breakfast was way over priced.
