We are staying again in a few months. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. The beach is two blocks away, although uphill and down a good number of stairs. If you have problems with stairs you may want to drive down to the parking for the beach a mile away. We stayed three nights and were... More

Rooms are a bit outdated and bed was not the most comfortable, but it was clean and the staff was very nice. The location is great - just 2 blocks from the beach. Good variety with the breakfast as well.

Very clean comfortable room. Helpful friendly staff. So close to beach and a great deal for the money! Breakfast could use whole wheat bagels, however, we were happy with the cinnamon raisin :) Laundry a plus!

Room was clean and staff quickly responded to one concern about possible mold on shower curtain. Encinitas is laid back and a great location for enjoying North County beaches. Not fancy, but we'll maintained property with all the basics taken care of

Best feature was the front desk staff both on evening and morning duty. The rate was also reasonable. The included breakfast was adequate. But, that being said, the room just was passable at best --- crummy towels, few accessible electrical outlets, odd configuration of the space. Shower was really difficult to work.

This place is right on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Encinitas (Moonlight Beach) CA. It has a very nice looking pool and free parking--and if the lot is full, you can probably find street parking nearby. The beach is right around a nearby corner; easy access. A nice "continental" breakfast is offered. Selections include: Individually wrapped cheese portions, yogurt,... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The beach is within walking distance (even with 2 small children). Overall this was a wonderful place for our family to stay during our trip to San Diego. We will definitely come back.

Clean room, comfortable bed and pillows. Front desk service excellent. Best location for walking to great restaurants, downtown, etc. Beach close by. Management was quick to respond to a small problem and had it fixed quickly. Very friendly management. Water pressure in shower poor but remember this area is in a drought and they are conscious of water conservation.

We love to stay here when we visit the San Diego area. It's clean and the staff is so helpful and friendly. We love that is so close to the beach ... just a short walk. The price is very affordable and even includes a nice continental breakfast.
