ENCINITAS HOTEL

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Located near the beach. Nice breakfast buffet. Upgraded to a suite with separate bedroom and kitchen for minimal cost. Small but nice pool area.
Cons: Upgrade to color schemes. The dark brown paint on the woodwork and trim were a bit outdated.
Very nice hotel. Train near by did not bother us at all.

Convenient

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Update decor. Insulate from road noise.
Location: Beach and beach businesses
Close to beach activities and businesses along 101 and within walking distance from the RR station. Numerous people had problems with the electronic room keys requiring several trips to the office to get them reset. Occasional traffic noise late at night was a minor problem. Nice balconies with views on every room.

very shabby place...

Posted Jan 15, 2014
The hotel is very shabby - seemed likely to close sometime soon. The restaurant is closed, so nowhere to eat in the hotel. The pre-prepared breakfast buffet by the pool was ok. The room was missing some furniture and the couch was dirty. Bed was comfortable and clean and bathroom was clean, though missing things like coffee creamer/sweetener/stirrer. To get ice we had to go downstairs. We noticed that a number of college kids were staying there - probably 4-6 to a room, because the price is right, and the town is a great surfing and bicycling center.

Good Hotel, Great Views

Posted Dec 3, 2013
Pros: Good sized balcony with a wonderful view. Good location. Nice sized rooms with clean, if not fancy, bathrooms.
Cons: The television was strange. It paused between changing channels so you never knew if you were going to get a particular channel or not.
Location: Right near the beach. You do hear the train, but you can't escape that if you are in Encinitas. Besides, it's not a bad sound.
The hotel is nice in that so many of the rooms have an ocean view and the price is reasonable. The bed is comfortable (but the front desk guy did not know what I meant by "feather" or "Down" pillows.) It's okay, the ones they had were good enough. The staff was nice but not too forthcoming. Granted we stayed during a holiday so maybe they were on skeleton crew. I asked where the breakfast (included) was served and he told me how to get there. Only it was well past the time they were serving. He could have saved me the walk by letting me know. Other than that, our experience was fine.

Comfortable hotel close to beach

Posted Sep 1, 2013
Pros: Comfortable beds, good view, great breakfast, excellent location.
Cons: Maybe new carpet and bathroom renovation. Not that is was in bad shape but over time styles change and updating becomes necessary.
Location: Local to Moonlight beach, parks, downtown Encinitas with great restaurants and shopping
Our family has stayed here twice and had an excellent experience both times. We got the ocean view we asked for and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was especially good and we liked being so close to the beach and downtown Encinitas.

Okay hotel, but pricey for what you get

Posted Aug 1, 2013
Pros: Distance to beach. Room decor. Ocean view.
Cons: Update and brighten lobby. Buy new bed linens, upgrade mattress! Linens on our bed were well past their prime.
Location: Location great for kids. Near very kid-friendly, safe beach -- main life guard station right on beach.
Five blocks from the beach, which is nice. Difficult to find even with a GPS. Room decor great, but bed was uncomfortable and the bed linens felt overused. Decor in lobby dreary. Difficult access if handicapped. Okay breakfast buffet.
