  • 6,0.Good

    This place was ok. I thought for the price it would have been nicer. The size of the balcony and view are deceiving from the pictures. It was much smaller and overlooked the alley with a peekaboo view of the ocean. The furniture on the balcony was very uncomfortable. I also was not expecting the layout of the room to be as it was. The shower was not in a bathroom but within the room itself, same with the sink. The toilet did have it's own room with a door. The service was fine I would have just expected nicer accommodations for the price. But I guess you are paying for the location, oh and it's Del Mar, so there is that.

    Cozy, great feel, comfortable. Right in the heart of pedestrian zone of Del Mar, lots of shops and eateries walking distance. Close to the ocean (but not on the beach). The penthouse suite we rented had huge patio with spa and fireplace.

    Bed and Breakfast with low quality mini-room.

    For one, this was not a hotel/motel but a bed and breakfast place with none of the conveniences of a hotel. The room was small and no bathroom space. The cost was not worth it. I have stayed in other bed and breakfast places and this was the lowest quality. I cannot recommend this place to anyone. I asked for a hotel/motel and not a mini room. I thought that at $300/per night the place would be better quality. I was very disappointed.

    Private grotto feeling

    I really like The Secret Garden Inn. It's different and artsy and private. Not your typical hotel with service and breakfast included. Pretty self-service but I don't mind that. The Secret Cafe which is not connected to the hotel Is very good and makes it easy to get to dinner. A few steps away.
