Great Hotel and staff. When FULL breakfast resumes there will be no place better. Newly decorated / furnished rooms are great, with new kitchens and large refrigerator with separate freezer. We had 2 adjoining rooms. My place of choice for North County accommodations when in San Diego - on top of hill overlooking Encinitas Blvd & Moonlight Beach . Convenient... More

The Encinitas California Best Western Inn and Suites at Moonlight Bay is an older hotel that has kept its stature as a great beach hotel. It has quiet rooms (unusual in today's fast-paced and crowded environment). But we had a room above the pool and were able to view the scenic green palm trees, plants, and architecture of the area.... More

I really wanted to like this hotel because the staff was so nice and I could see they are trying to upgrade but they must be using the lowest bidder because the workmanship is very poor. The room was nice and big but smelled. It had a nice deck but it and the furniture on it were so filthy I... More

Good location near where our son lives. Easy parking and access to room. Nice rooms. Excellent beds. Breakfast easy and convenient. Good to have a fitness room. Limited ocean view, but great panorama view.

We were very disappointed with this hotel. The walls were thin and the people next to us loud until late in the night. Also, for some reason this hotel was not allowed to serve hot breakfast items and there was only cold pre-packaged foods to choose from. The room could have been cleaner (there were food crumbs on the floor... More

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.
