I booked this hotel through hotel tonight.com. I chose it because of it being so close to the beach and mostly because of the rooftop hot tub. Upon arrival I found out that the room I received did not have an ocean view so I asked to tour the available rooms. Krishna took me on the tour showing me all... More

Very quiet for a beach city. 5 minutes from the ocean, beautiful beaches. Rooms are very spacious, continental breakfast is only mediocre. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Parking is underground and limited, some street parking is available.

My husband, daughter and I were passing through Cardiff for an evening to visit a friend. We decided to stay at the Cardiff by the Sea Lodge as it was quite close to her place. It is in an amazing location right near some great restaurants and the beach and also has its own dedicated parking garage. The rooms are... More

When we returned, there was a cupcake with a note and candle to say Happy Anniversary :). We also loved the rooftop hot tub and fire pit!! Overall... More

Upon arrival the hostess offered us coffee, tea, water and delicious lemon cakes.After taking us to our amazing room she lit the firepit, offered to make us smores and brought us wine glasses.Needless to say, the service was second to none!

My wife Kathryn and I stayed at this hotel (B&B) from 05/25/2014-05/30/2014. The business was just purchased by a new firm. The service was exceptional. The hotel has a rustic charm with rooftop garden, fountain, fire pit and a hot tub and of course a view of the pacific ocean, that is one block away. The room that we stayed... More

This BnB is in a great location for shopping in Solano Beach, Encinitas and Leucadia. You can see the beach from the balcony which has a jucuzzi and fire pit and sitting area where you can bring your own libations and snacks. The continental breakfast is nice with fresh pastries from a local bakery. The property is a bit tired... More

We are a senior couple from Southern California and stayed one night. Staff very friendly, but not helpful. The room although spacious had a marginal view of the ocean while overlooking the roof of an adjacent building. The trains, one block away ran all night and blew their horn as we were near a crossing. The hotel is rather run... More

The selling point of this hotel is its location and "indy" feel. My room, 105, was very large, clean and quiet, and because several in my price point were available, they showed them to me and let me chose. The continental breakfast was very good and well served. The people very friendly. All this said it was still rather expensive... More
