The rooms are average size for this type of property. The location is ideal - in the middle of great restaurants and great beaches. Minimal on-site amenities which are in-line with the classification of the property. I felt this was way above average for an Econolodge. The staff was beyond accommodating! They were very attentive to our needs and were... More

remodeled, comfortable bed. Housekeeping needs to step up their game. The housekeepers need to vacuum the hallways on the edges. Small thing, but, hair left in the bathroom was unsettling. Silly, but, I care. Breakfast in unappealing, but, totally fine for the price. Perfect for the kids or those who aren't too picky. Brownie bites, cinnabun bites, bagels kind of... More

We are staying at the hotel on an extended business stay and while we had some issue during the first week of our stay, after talking to the manager, they quickly solved our issue. The hotel is in a great location and it is much better than your average Econo Lodge.

Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. Location was great if visiting LEGOLAND, beach, and San Diego. There is plenty places to eat within walking distance. Would like to see the place get some TLC in the common areas and outside.

After driving 7 hours from Scottsdale, I arrived at 3:30AM to Encinitas. The hotel was sold out, but had 4 no-shows, and the front desk agent was kind enough to call his manager to see if they could release a room. He received no response and graciously took it upon himself to grant a room. Having worked in the hospitality... More

We stayed here 1 night during our 2 week trip up the California coast. Just a few blocks from beach access. My husband and I jogged to the beach and down the coast from the hotel. We enjoyed this little hotel.

This was our first stay here -- we usually stay at another hotel but this year we economized a bit for our annual trip back home to San Diego. The location is excellent. Very near the nice Encinitas Blvd Moonlight Beach playground and with easy walking access to less crowded beach front as well, It's adjacent to Lou's Records which... More

We booked late through Choice Hotels, whose website was broken and helpdesk staff were useless. We wanted to book with points/cash, but ended up having to pay entirely in cash. That didn't make us happy. The hotel was good enough but hardly great. On the good side, the room was spacious and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Accessibility was... More

Arrived late Sunday night and was greeted by friendly night clerk. Room was on first floor that was small, but clean and functional. Breakfast was good, parking easy, location good for one night stay. Liked it for price.
