It is a beautiful hotel with beautifully maintained facilities. The breakfast is ample and surprisingly good. The staff is great. Unfortunately, my room was lacking a working coffee maker, had less than adequate lighting and very little water pressure.

We have stayed at this hotel over 50 times and will continue to go. The beds are so comfortable, the rooms have nice views. The staff is friendly and always helpful. The pool is big enough for all. We enjoy the breakfast set up as well. We are always a walk away from the beach and a beautiful sunset.

Basic, good for one night stay as you're passing thru Encinatas. Breakfast is included. Good for getting on the road the next day. It is an older hotel refurbished with new furniture but it still has the feel of a rundown place.

We got a room here after two nights at Moonlight Beach motel (which for me, the only reason I would recommend it is proximity to the beach). The BW Inn was clean,with nice rooms & ample seating other than the bed, & a balcony (with limited ocean view). They have a good breakfast, not just continental fare. One day there...

We traveled to this area to see a performance at La Paloma Theater. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that we could easily walk to the local downtown/theater and the train station {for future visits}. Our pre-check in information said we would have a microwave, but we only had a fridge.

I have brought many people to this hotel over the past 10 years. Probably have booked over 50 rooms during this time. This past week I suffered a major disappointment. I booked three rooms for very important business partners from Brazil. The internet went down and the hotel was not able to restore services for the 4 days my guests...

Thank you for your review and I am sorry about the wi-fi issues you encountered during your stay. We did have some equipment damage caused by the power outage and had to wait on parts delivery. Sometimes we are at someone else's mercy. We appreciate your understanding.

Hotel is named incorrectly. I wanted a hotel that was walkable to the beach and other amenities- this hotel has neither. Once you exit I-5 and travel west bound on Encinitas Blvd., you cannot turn into the hotel. There is no turn lane. You have to drive by the hotel and access east bound on Encinitas Blvd. Once you are...

Sorry to hear of your difficulties. Best Western Encinitas is 3 blocks from Moonlight Beach. We sit up on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Downtown shops and many restaurants are just around the corner.

Great view from all rooms. Great balcony but unable to use due to weather. Internet wasn't working but not their fault a tree came down during the storm. Large room. Older hotel but updated. Clean. Even walked around in white socks and didn't show dirt on bottom of socks. Friendly staff
