For some reason, most of the hotels in SB have a 2 night-minimum so we chose the Encina because it allowed a Sat night only stay. This was our 2nd stay at the Lodge. First visit was in a 2 BR suite, second in a queen room. Both were clean and spacious. During both stays, there were large groups (student sports teams) staying there so there was noise coming from other guests (late at night) but I'm sure it's quieter at other times. Appreciated the coffee in the lobby. Staff was friendly, room was ready early, easy drive to restaurants on State St., plenty of parking, restaurant on site for breakfast. Good choice for a quick trip to SB given how expensive and limited the options are for hotels.
