Quiet clean and located on Pacific Hwy near the central beach activities and restaurants. Encinitas is a popular beach area near San Diego and has a village like atmosphere. Also has bike lanes and walking trails at the beach.

While visiting my daughter who lives in Encinitas, my son and I stayed at Econo Lodge. Our room had two queen beds, a great TV, wall air conditioner (helpful to block street/train noises at night), a table with 2 chairs, and an updated bathroom. No closet, but a wall rack met our needs. The continental breakfast was very adequate, and... More

The hotel is not the Ritz, but for the price the value is very good. It is close to the beach, and there are several quaint restaurants within easy walking distance. The only issue--the WiFi. If you ever logged off, it seemed that you had to go through the entire login process again. Overall, for the price, the room was... More

When entering the Encinitas Econolodge lobby, one notices a plaque saying it was a 2012 best hotel finalist. Whoever awarded this plaque either did not stay in the room my friend and I had or had smoked lots of crack cocaine. The room was very basic and the shower was not working. The management did correct the shower the next... More

I only booked this place because of the recent reviews on TA. and people were right. it was clean and simple and cheap. I stayed several nights. I had a room upstairs above the ice machine which I thought at first was a negative but became a positive when I realized I couldn't hear anyone else. it was close to... More

I love being able to bring my small quiet dog with me. The price was reasonable being close to the beach. The room was clean, nice, sufficiently heated, and fairly quiet. They served a small free self serve breakfast everyday. The only drawbacks were that the pool was not heated and I kept having to re-install their wifi to get... More

This was my 2nd trip to Encinitas (I used to live there) and my first stay at the Econolodge. I booked it based on the reviews and price. I was happy with our experience. The staff was very friendly, the room clean, the breakfast satisfying (and free) and a great location. We were in a west facing room overlooking a... More

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
