Long weekend, attend a wedding. Close to beaches and terrific little restaurants. Had our dog with us. Hotel has a good set up for dog rooms. They are on the first floor close to the pet exercise area. Our room was a king suite with a nice balcony.

The rooms are out of date and very dark and dreary. It's within walking distance of the beach and downtown Encinitas, but otherwise I would not stay here again. Overpriced for the quality of the room.

Over all you can't beat the location! The customer service was great! The bed was a bit soft and bouncy for my taste but overall pretty comfy. The pool area is really nice. The decor in rooms are very dated and a bit worn out. We skipped the free breakfast as it is continental, cafeteria style. Overall, a good place...

Hotel was in a good location, walking distance from the beach. It was very well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. The rooms were big. The breakfast was in a nice area by the pool. I just recommended to check your statement upon leaving.

Excellent breakfast. Mary at front desk was very helpful. Very good room. We will return! First class bed and blinds. The breakfast is a reason for a return stay Corners on bedfre are dangerous and sharp. The driveway should have pedestrian sidewalk, people can get hit. Y incoming car and Best Western could be liable. helpful. Room was excellently.

1 staff member threatened to kick us out because the door was faulty and we needed help which took forever. We found this unprotefessional and rude. The next person we dealt with was friendly kind and apologized but damage was done.
