The front desk was very accommodating. I requested a first floor room, and he remembered I had called a day prior to arrival. The room was clean and quiet. This was a good value for the area. Free parking, no resort fee, close to town and resturants. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

My mom stayed here when she was visiting me over the holidays. She had nothing but good things to say about this hotel. Her room had been attractively remodeled since her last stay, and she felt her room was safe, clean and quiet - with a friendly staff. All in all, a good value in Encinitas! She also enjoyed walking...

Awesome restaurants with equally respectable prices within walking distance. Incredible dog parks nearby. Wonderful city. And the weather was outstanding when north of there it was a bit chilly. A nearby coffee shop is a popular hotspot for the locals and it's within walking distance.

I chose this hotel because of the reviews and because it has indoor corridors, which seemed difficult to find in San Diego area. Overall it was an okay hotel but it's a bit worn down. If I could give this hotel 2.5 circles I would - it wasn't really poor or average but somewhere in between. The pros are that...

It's a decent motel. The price is right and they accept small pets for $25 per night. Not many places accept pets and this was a huge reason why we chose to stay here and La Quinta Inn was booked. I'd stay here again if I had pets with me.
