We stayed here to meet for the weekend at a nearby beach with friends and family. This economical hotel was perfect for our family (including a 4 and 6 year old). All parking is close to the hotel elevator. Free hot breakfast is definately an advantage (do not expect gourmet here...the food does its job though!) . Eggs, bacon, sausage, hot cinnamon rolls (get these when you see them, I do not think they replenish these!), variety of breads to pop in the toaster yourself, yoplait yogurt, coffee, tea, juice, 4 kinds of cereal make up this breakfast in a clean, great room next to the pool. The pool area is basic, but very clean. Our children were just ecstatic to have a pool. The hallways and lobby look a bit worn, but our room was sparkling clean. We were very pleased, or course, this is where our children would mostly be. The large refrigerator and microwave oven in the room was very handy for lunches and snacks in the room. We packed a cooler with food and drink from home and it all fit with room to spare in the fridge. We had a balcony that was safe for the children to go out on, but the view was someone's backyard. We did not mind because we did not need the view. If you are concerned to have a nice view, try to book a room near the front of the hotel near the highway or overlooking the pool. We could hear the tv next door easily in the evening, but it did not affect our sleep. This was generally a quiet hotel. So, if you are looking for convenience, economy and do not need frills, this hotel is a nice place to stay.
*Note: We met family for two days at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. It took about 10 minutes driving north on Coast Highway (hotel is located on this street). This is a great beach for families. There is a great, shaded playground near the parking lot and near the bathrooms/ showers and snack bar. The beach is a nice size and very enjoyable! I do not know what the beach was like near the hotel, we never made it there!!!
