Between the price and the quality of the room, I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to friends. It can be a bit loud with the train passing, but it only runs every few hours, so it isn't that noticeable. The only major complaint I have is that our room was not as clean as it could have...

I had a south facing upstairs room and the traffic from Highway 101 and passing train could be heard most of the time. Due to the lovely weather I had the window open all the time, thus this surely did not help. Yet, I quickly adjusted to the traffic noise.....the room/bathroom was super clean, the front lobby staff and cleaning... More

I recently spent several weeks at Moonlight Beach Econolodge in Encinitas, and very much enjoyed my stay. It is a small, family owned hotel and has a warm and friendly atmosphere in addition to being very clean and cared for with pride. Claudia and Suzanna are the devoted housekeepers who are personable and helpful as well as being very trustworthy.... More

This property is a true gem of the north San Diego coastal area. Always clean (and I recognize housekeepers from visit to visit...One has been there for 17 years).

If you are looking for an inexpensive but comfortable stay in Encinitas, within walking distance of beach access AND one of the area's most terrific coffee/café places (Pannikin's - in historic old train station), and if you love walking into your hotel to smiles and friendly, helpful staff, this Econo Lodge is definitely for you.

Neat and clean rooms. Breakfast was so so but there are two nice breakfast places just a block down the street. A short walk to the ocean. When looking for an inexpensive place this is a great place for the money.

The Encinitas Econo Lodge was as advertised and that was most important - no negative surprises. The staff people were above average and very helpful. I need 50 more characters so let me talk about the ice machine that was exceptional.

Made a quick trip to Encinitas to visit family and stayed 3 miles from them in your quiet, clean, and comfortable hotel. Easy location to get to, close to the beach and many great places to eat. I usually hear housekeeping first thing in the morning hours but they are clearly more considerate than most. No banging doors!

Friendly, clean, quiet. The room had vaulted ceiling that gave a feel of spaciousness. This is my second stay, and I will return whenever I am in Southern California. Close to a nice access to the ocean. The hotel has updated there breakfast location since the last time I was there. Nice and cozy.
