Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Del Mar Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Del Mar, CA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Del Mar hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Due to its location on the Pacific Ocean, Del Mar takes its name from the Spanish phrase “by the sea.” When the first California Southern Railroad was built in 1882 connecting San Diego and San Bernardino the contractor and engineer who worked on the project, Theodore M. Loop, built a home in the area he described as “the most attractive place on the entire coast.” He then constructed a tent city on what is now Torrey Pines State Beach, and his wife referred to it as “Del Mar.” The beauty and potential of the area continued to captivate visitors, which led to the town's official founding in 1885.

Today, despite being overshadowed by San Diego, Del Mar is home to numerous beach parks, a race track, spas, entertainment venues, and other points of interest that make it a popular destination in its own right. Whatever your reason for visiting Del Mar, California, it's important that you locate the right hotel that allows you to experience everything this picturesque city has to offer.

Best Time to Visit Del Mar, CA

Being a seaside city, it's no surprise that Del Mar's peak tourist season is summer. Not only will you find more crowds on the beaches as Del Mar accommodates San Diego's tourist overflow, but you'll also encounter more local families lining up at major attractions. In addition, hotel rates skyrocket, making it difficult to find deals unless you book a room several weeks or months in advance. Still, you can't beat a summer vacation in Del Mar with its water sports and other outdoor recreational activities.

September through November are great months to visit Del Mar because the tourist season has tapered off, leaving hotels to offer reduced rates. Temperatures continue to hover in the 70s, with lows only hitting the mid-50s in November, so it's still a good season to enjoy the beaches. You'll also have access to nearby fall events, including the Old Town San Diego Art Festival, Dixieland Jazz Fest, the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival, KAABOO Del Mar, and the San Diego County Fair at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Winter is San Diego County's rainy season, but despite that fact, there are still plenty of sunny days to be had. Low temperatures dip to around 48 degrees with highs staying in the mid-60s, making Del Mar a coveted place for a winter getaway. While there won't be as many beachgoers, winter is whale migration season, so be sure to reserve a spot on a tour boat to catch a glimpse of the city's marine residents.

Spring is another great time to visit Southern California. Temperatures gradually warm up to the high-60s, encouraging more water activity. With the local children still in school and peak tourist season still around the corner, visitors have free reign over the city. Just keep in mind that more tourists start to arrive in May when temperatures near the 70-degree mark. Popular springtime events include Carnival, San Diego Earth Fair, and Fiesta Cinco de Mayo.
