Days Inn Encinitas- Moonlight Beach
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Encinitas
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Jennifer at the front desk offered service above and beyond what I expected. Upon arrival she checked us in and was very pleasant. As we started to unload the car I went back into the lobby to see if they had a cart that I could use. Jennifer said they did not but that she would help us carry our luggage up to the room... I told her no, that we could get it no problem but she said "I'll help you, I'm not doing anything else." and she came out to the car and helped us unload our luggage and held the elevator so we could get everything in one trip.
The room was clean and comfortable and compared to other hotels in the area was very reasonably priced for this time of year. It was 2 blocks from a fantastic beach and the Coaster was only 1 block from the hotel... you can travel up and down the coast on the Coaster and not have to worry about parking. We also spent some time at the pool one evening and enjoyed it very much.

Room Tip: We were in room 224 on the back side of the hotel close to the elevator and stairway... very conveni...

This was a last minute booking and we needed a place to stay, so my family and I took a chance. Regretfully, we didn't get a chance to read tripadvisor reviews. But we REALLY wish I had! Decent looking hotel, pool located off to the side with some shade. Our initial thought was hmmm, not bad. That was until we entered the room. It didn't bother us so much that it was small,but rather that it wreaked of cigarettes! Not good for someone w/asthma or young children. My husband had booked non-smoking, so he asked if maybe there had been some mistake. Front desk confirmed that it was non-smoking and told him that the hotel was smoke free, which didn't make sense w/the smoke smell and the fact that there was an ash tray sitting on the table? The only thing they said they could do was have someone come and spray a strong deodorizer in our room, which we said no to. And the rest of the reviews are true. Static reception on the tv and really noisy at night since hotel sits adjacent to freeway, train tracks and boulevard. And the noise probably wouldn't have bugged me so much if the sheets weren't so starched and scratchy, preventing me from getting any sleep. And the hotel is more within short driving, not walking, distance from hotel. Needless to say, we will not be returning or referring anyone to this hotel.

This was our first stay in Encinitas, Ca. and extremely pleased with the accommodations and easy access to the property. My wife and I were very impressed with the friendly staff that went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. A special thank you to Jennifer and Michael at the front desk who took care of our needs during our 5 day stay. We'll be back!

We had a pleasant stay. The breakfast is truly a "continental" style. The room was pretty small but more than satisfactory for a couple of days. If you have AT&T for cell phone service you will get spotty reception all along Encinitas Blvd, not just at the Days Inn.
