We'd stayed at this hotel before, and came back when we we returned to the San Diego area. It's a great deal for the location--about 2 blocks from Stone Steps beach, about 4-5 blocks from Moonlight Beach. We were able to walk to the beach, restaurant, coffee, bars, shopping, the whole time while we were there. The rooms are a... More

The location is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. The Pannikin was one block up for pastries and coffee every morning, but the hotel also provided breakfast for the kids.

I have stayed at this Econolodge periodically for about 10 years. It has a family vibe and the staff are super friendly. It doesn't have all the fluff and pampering of the more expensive chain hotels but it's location, a couple blocks from the ocean, makes the experience way more memorable. It's always very clean and very quiet. Legendary San... More

Have stayed there several times, but this time there were some issues that needed to be taken care of. The sink was clogged, the sink and shower needed a better cleaning and the carpet also needed to be vacuumed better. There was dust in the corners, and the it was a bit musty. I rated it very good based on... More

This EconoLodge is in a good location along 101, lots of great restaurants and bars to choose from along this strip. There is some parking in the lot, but we returned to the hotel late at night and had to park on the street nearby. Only two handicap spots and both were taken. The hotel itself backs up to a...

I stayed at the Econo Lodge Encinitas recently with 7 other guys for a golf trip in the north San Diego area. It is right on 101 and across the street from the train tracks so you have to be aware of the associated noise. The rooms are very clean and well appointed for an economy motel. The beds are...

The location is wonderful and the staff is very nice! The motel itself is a little dated...my first room smelled awful, so they moved me to another. The pillows/sheets smelled a little mildewy and the towels in my room were damp. And they do not provide conditioner...so I accidentally used lotion in my hair, thinking the white bottle next to...
