The location of this property would make one think that it would be so much better that it is. Worn dated furniture, a very limited B-fast offering and a staff that acted as if they would rather be anywhere else but here. Views are limited, parking is tight and unless you are sure footed walking from here to anywhere is... More

We had the pleasure of staying here 4 nights.. Rooms were very cozy and nice.. Staff was accommodating, friendly, and professional. From check in front desk staff, contintental breakfast young lady, to housekeeping. Strategically located.. 2 blocks to I405 Freeway, 2 blocks to Amtrak / Coaster train depot, and only 4 blocks to Moonlight Beach.. Take advantage of the Coaster... More

My mom, sister and I stayed at this hotel while the cafeteria/restaurant was under construction. We were informed of the construction 2 days before we arrived. The breakfast was included in our reservation. In lieu of the regular offering there was a pathetic selection of breakfast type food - frozen pancakes, frozen breakfast sandwiches, cereal, coffee and tea. There was... More

Overall it is a great location with ocean views just and old property that needs update. The rooms were dark and need painting & new carpets & color. The breakfast room needs windows and a little more to offer to be called a breakfast.

My mother and I stayed here for Mother's Day weekend and it was great. We stay at this hotel 2-3 times a year and it is always a good experience. The beds are very comfortable and I love that I get 4 pillows! I would not stay anywhere else when I visit Encinitas/Carlsbad. We have been coming to this hotel... More

I read reviews with this place having 4 stars but couldn't believe it was that great with such a low price. But it's true. Incredible value and huge room. My sister stayed at La Costa and when she saw my room she was shocked at how nice it was.

Once a nice property this place has peeling paint, rusted patio furniture, and rooms that have that chlorine pool smell. Our patio was dirty and our towels were just hung on their rails without folding. No updates such as USB ports on the desk.

I stay here all the time because of family in Encinitas. This is really the only choice unless you want a small eclectic Motel in Leucadia. They have improved their TV service with Direct TV and the internet worked well this trip, but, this could be because they were not full. The rooms are comfortable and the suites are large.... More

I am a fan of Best Western and have stayed there in most of the lower 48. This member is a bit long in the tooth (an old term from when they used to measure a horse's age by looking at the teeth). Granted we got the worst room in the inn with a view of the condo parking lot.... More
