Hotel is definitely older but rooms were clean and location is great. The beach and restaurants very close. You just have to get past the no too friendly front desk and it’s fine after that. It was nice to sit on the balcony in the evenings and watch the sun set over the water.

Hotel's Favorite
Newly renovated. Rooms were clean, modern, and spacious. Good location as far as driving to nearby places. They have a heated jacuzzi and small pool. Lobby looks inviting. They have a drinking water and ice dispenser. Coffee all day long available.

Great accommodations with newly remodeled 1 BR suite with Kitchen and balcony's with great views of the Pacific Ocean. [Not gonna give you my favorite room number though ] encinit

The close location to Moonlight Beach is not enough to recommend this "Inn". The front desk girls were extremely rude and didn't give a damn about customer service. Ants, broken AC, ZERO amenities... this was one of the worst hotels we have stayed at. Read the other bad reviews and take heed. Steer clear of this place!!

Response from Atul Kumar, General Manager at Best Western Encinitas Inn & Suites At Moonlight Beach
Responded Jul 8, 2020
I acknowledge your frustrations, please keep in mind these unprecedented times in which we all are navigating, we are in this together! In an effort to stop the spread of the COVID19 virus the pool area, fitness area, and breakfast buffet have been closed for the last few months in accordance with county. Our fitness center and pool area are due to be reopened very shortly as soon as the next two weeks! In addition the only rooms that feature a microwave or mini fridge are one of our many kitchenette suites. We apologize about the issues you encountered with your room, I agree this summer did start warming up at that time. Had you brought these issues up to the desk at the time we would have promptly moved you. As you stated, we are indeed a half mile walking distance away from Moonlight Beach and downtown Encinitas, your business is greatly appreciated!

We checked into the Encinitas Best Western shortly after the COVID 19 opening. I checked Best Western Website first to see what we can expect. I loved the location. You can do a short walk into town and restaurants, even the main beach. Parking was plenty and free. Due to COVID we could not use the pool area, which looked very nice and big compared to other hotels ands private. Room was big and we had even a sleeper sofa wich was great for our son. Although Best western website said they either offer To go breakfast or plate service, the hotel told us they were not allowed to serve any food . There were only coffee and juice offerings. IT was ok , we went fot=r breakfast somewhere else, bt wished they would changed it on their hotel website or offerings.
