Perfect hide-away for a relaxing, romantic weekend. We highly recommend this hidden gem for a get-away from the City. It will be even nicer once the full breakfast service is in place. We had an Ocean view room which was just delightful. The staff was attentive and helpful. Décor of rooms could be updated, though.

We checked in on a Monday after reserving a room with an ocean view. What we received was a partial view over the roof of a neighboring condo. There was no shampoo in the room, and had to find some on our own on the housekeeping cart. Later noticed the toilet ran every 6 minutes and water was on the... More

We have stayed at this hotel under both my husbands name and mine many many times in the past, as our aged mother lives nearby. We will not be staying there again. Front desk either has no training, no ability or no authority to help on any level and when asked to speak to their GM, one looks at me... More

The location is perfect for accessing the beach and Encinitas, the room was big and comfortable and had a large balcony, the pool and hot tub were clean and well located, the laundry facilities were handy and the staff were outstanding! We would definitely go back to... More

I really felt sorry for the staff. They wanted to doa good job, but never got the training to do so. The management should wake up and realize the better the staff is trained and appreciated the more satisfied guests will be.

This was our second choice hotel, we made last minute reservations and our first choice was completely booked. I'm glad we stayed here and we'll definitely stay here again. The location was perfect. It's walking distance to Moonlight Beach and downtown Encinitas. There is a very nice park right across the street and a shopping center near by to pick... More

Nice older hotel. We had an oversize room with a great balcony. I am pretty sure all rooms are over sized. They were doing some renovations while we were there. Mainly a new breakfast area. I was expecting a better breakfast from Best Western. Might have been subpar because of the remodel/temporary room for breakfast. I would stay there again.

We loved it here - 4 blocks from the beach it took us about 5-8 minutes to walk there. Perfect location, lots of shops, laundry across the street with places to eat super close by. The pool and hot tub were nice and it was very quiet. It was a little over an hour drive to Disneyland, about 30 minutes... More
