Encinitas is a cool little beach town on 101--property is expensive and scarce so there aren't a million cookie cutter hotels around to pick from. There especially aren't many hotels within a five minute walk of downtown Encinitas and the beach for the $75 a night I paid that are clean and well run with a friendly staff and a...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

This was our fourth or fifth time staying here and we find it is a reliably good place to stay. Clean, comfortable, affordable and the friendly staff always makes us feel welcome. Rooms have everything we needed, including iron and ironing board, fridge, coffee maker etc. Our room had two comfortable chairs which I like because I don't like to...

Found this place to stop overnight while driving down the coast. For the price, you absolutely can't go wrong. Location is ideal if you want to go north or south for beach and tourist activities. I did the torrey pines park hike and beach and it was only 12m away from here. Comp breakfast included light snacks, oatmeal, bagels, cereal,...

A one night stay, bed and room darkness were fine. Breakfast was a bit sketchy - juice, some fruit, dry cereal, bread and a few pastries. No elevator to the second floor, so that may be a problem for some.

This older motel has been updated with new flooring and bedding. The host is gracious. Location is a two blocks walk to beach. It is an econo lodge so don't expect anything fancy. Also an easy drive into Encinitas where there are cute local restaurants

Less than a five minute walk from the beach. Located in a Great neighborhood. Clean comfortable room. Friendly staff. Great value for the price. We will definitely be returning to this hotel on our next visit to Encinitas.

Excellent location, friendly and professional staff, has all you need and a great value for the money. Walking distance to the beach and to an amazing coffee shop. Highly recommend for a family stay. Easy walk to Moonlight beach with a nice playground for kids, as well as to Stone Steps beach.

This hotel is very basic. No frills. Clean. but one of the towels was almost worn through. I liked that my room faced the back, which is a residential street. It was incredibly quiet at night, if that is important to you. I like that I could walk to the train station and to that great coffee place, and other...
