Wonderful

Posted May 16, 2014
Wonderful staff who was very attentive and always greated me with a warm welcoming smile. Courteous of my needs traveling with a 4 year old. The rooms were beautifully kept and the environmental efforts to preserve water and recycle were extremely respectable. Very refreshing and relaxing. Also on the last day I observed this hotel open up their doors to evacuees of local fires. They took anyone and everyone including pets. I was very impressed with the sense of community and compassion.

Close to beach

Posted Mar 15, 2014
Pros: clean and quiet
Cons: better breakfast options
Location: Moonlight beach is one of the nicest beach parks I've been to. Playground for kids, picnic tables, bathrooms, showers, volleyball, etc.

Great stay

Good hotel for the price. Breakfast wasn't quite enough, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and in good condition.

Professional & Friendly

Posted Feb 14, 2014
Pros: The staff is professional and friendly. While this is not the most modern Lodge in the world, it could compete for the title of cleanest.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind at this time.
Location: Downtown Encinitas is extremely close. Every breakfast café I visited was outstanding.
I arrived at the Econo Lodge Moonlight Beach very late in the evening. As I opened the door, I was greeted by name by the professional at the registration desk. Each time I passed the desk, I was greeted by a friendly, sincere hello.

Nice hotel close to beach

Posted Jan 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. The continental breakfast wasn't anything special but this was a nice hotel.

Excellent Budget Family Room

Posted Jan 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
The motel is an excellent position close to the beach and to attractions such as Legoland. The breakfast is just a dodgy filter coffee and some pastries. The room is large and the wifi works well.

Not clean and too close to the train tracks
Comment from Hotel Management
Apr 24, 2014 by Leela Guest Service, Hotel Management
We are sorry to hear that we failed to provide you with a very satisfying stay owing to our inability to meet your expectations of what a clean room is and where a hotel should be located. We have a rule in place that no guest should be permitted to enter a room unless it has been determined that it is immaculately clean and ready for occupancy. Nevertheless, we shall inform our housekeeping department of your comments for corrective actions to be employed to ensure that no guest shall complain about our room sanitation. We are terribly sorry that you found our location to be an issue. Most of our guests have found it to be of great convenience. We sincerely hope that you will give us a chance to change your perception of our hotel. We are very much capable of giving you a great hotel experience.
