I have said my remarks earlier in the survey. The stairwell carpet was not in good condition and smelled like urine. The cleaning staff was excellent. We would use this hotel again because it is so close to Moonlight Beach and the main street, but some improvements should be done to the pool area.

We are Platinum members of Best Western. Our original reservation was for 5 days but there was no way we were going to endure. Prior to our booking and stay I called the hotel to verify that the suites have a door to the separate the bedroom and was assured that they did. The hotel staff at the time of... More

We come here about 3 times a year, and stay at this hotel. Location perfect for us, near ocean, freeway, and Rancho Santa Fe. Always a quality experience, Internet, jacousi, pool, breakfast, fitness room.

A mixed review. Room was large and reasonably comfortable, but poorly insulated from noise from above. We requested a top floor when booking the room, but we were not given one. The balcony afforded a view of a shopping center and the freeway, which was very noisy. The breakfast provided was meager.

This is a consistently nice place to stay and in a great location. I have been coming to this location consistently for the past 7 years. The recent food code changes by the San Diego county health department have changed the breakfast menu -- but that's not fault of the hotel. However, the food that remains is very good and... More

Staff was really terrific. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was horribly lacking - something about due to California law they can't offer, eggs, waffles, bacon . . . pretty much all they had was cereal and yogurt. Oh, and it is NOT on the beach or near the beach. The beach is not in view anywhere from the hotel.

We stayed here in a newly remodeled pet friendly suite with a kitchenette. It was nice and roomy. The balcony was large and had a partial ocean view. Otherwise, it looked out over the park across the street. It was in a location convenient to visiting Carlsbad, Cardiff and Solana Beach. This was our second stay here and we will... More

I stay here when visiting family. The suites are large with plenty of room to entertain and prepare treats for guests. Pros: Convenient location, comfortable beds, clean rooms and nice bathrooms. Each room has a balcony. Internet is fast with no buffering. Staff is very accommodating... good coffee and pretty good continental breakfast. Cons: TV Stations limited with only one... More

It looms over the town and with the right room a marvelous view of Moonlight Beach. And everything about the place from the service to the breakfast staff is just perfect. The GM is a. Terrific guy. We have been there 20 times and have never been disappointed.

I would like to find a place to stay regularly in Encinitas. The hotel was quite which was mostly due to low occupancy. The decor is nicely updated and room was quite nice and large. I will stay again between Christmas and New Years and if they if it proves to be a pleasant stay, I will come back often.... More
