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

There are not many hotels to stay at in Encinitas, so we ended up here. Distance from San Diego is not too far so that is good. Also, the beach is just down the road so that was nice and Encinitas is a quaint little beach town. The room was pretty big but outdated. What we didn't enjoy were the... More

I prefer to sta at Hilton hotel chains, but I received an offer for a Best Western and so I took the chance and booked a one night stay at this Inn. Excellent choice.

The location was great, it was close to beach and restaurants, very convenient location. Rooms were spacious and clean. Could use some updating. Nice staff and quiet hotel for a weekend stay. Enjoy the stay very much.

We have been staying here for years. The hotel is convenient to great shopping, great restaurants. The pool is lovely, the breakfast is better than most and the staff is very helpful. There are often family gatherings there for weddings or graduations or whatever, and it is always a fun and lively place to be.

The rooms were really big, but very dated. The doors were on an outside corridor. The building needs a good paint job. The pool looked dirty. The balcony off our room was large, but overlooked somebodies garage. There is not a safe way to walk anywhere. The rooms smelled like a basement. The internet didn't work. The breakfast was nasty.

This Best Western in Encinitas, CA is my favorite to stay on the outskirts, just North of San Diego. Great views and sunsets overlooking the Pacific. Less traffic and congestion too. Great management, staff, and service. Full breakfast is added benefit to save time and start the day.

We've been coming here for years. Great little hotel. Pet friendly. Very clean and roomy. We usually take a suite which is under $200 a night. Its close to downtown and not that far from either the San Diego zoo or San Diego wild animal park

Great rooms, great location, great staff, great stay. I absolutely intend to come back and stay here. Everything exceeded expectations and for the very reasonable price, I was blown away at how lovely the rooms were and how nice the facilities were. Did not feel like a best western, felt more like a resort!
