    LICE! After 5 kids and 19 years, my daughter is the first case a few days after leaving this hotel. She fell asleep on the couch. She's the only one that got them. Manager would do nothing when called for help cover the cost of treating ($300!) Manager said would only help recoup cost of treatment after more complaints! So... More

    Having passed this hotel almost daily when we lived in the area, we were always curious about it. It's at a prime location for traveling families: walking distance to a great beach, three great parks, an AWESOME library, the commuter train station, and tons of great stores. After we moved, we decided to stay here during a vacation, and we... More

    I have to say up front that I am not massively bothered by the ant problem in my room but it was not what I expected from a $200 a night hotel room. Upon entering the hotel (which looks fine and is in a great location) I sat down at the little corner table to eat some food I'd purchased... More

    Close to everything in Encinitas; clean and very large rooms with modern bathrooms and private baloney looking out to the ocean. Great value, easy indoor parking and with continental breakfast too! Perfect for a little beach getaway.

    This was my second time here and it was just as good as the first time. Its a great value for the money. The rooms are very spacious and they have big private balconies. Its super close to the beach. They have parking in a garage. You can see the ocean but you don't have to hear the beach hell... More

    My wife and I were on a trip with our two grandchildren. We wanted to be be near San Diego but not in San Diego so we selected this hotel, also because of proximity to the beach. We had reserved a King suite but asked for a queen double if it became available. It was not available at check-in, but... More

    I stayed here last weekend for 3 nights, I had a very pleasant stay, staff was very friendly and helpful. I choose this hotel as it was located near beautiful moonlight beach, we walked every day to beach(takes about 5 minutes with my 5 year old kid). Internet speed was good, pool was clean and well maintained. Breakfast on pool... More

    Comfortable hotel! Great location. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Beautiful sunsets from our balcony. Moonlight Beach is beautiful and family friendly. Liked the after sunset bonfires. Everyone is very nice and friendly. We will be back.

    After staying here for years and enjoying every one of my stays, my latest attempt to get through to reservations/management, while leaving messages and phone numbers, got me nowhere. For years the manager, Jim Bolt, was wonderful to work with. New management, really bad. Not interested and would no longer stay or recommend this place.
