Over all you can't beat the location! The customer service was great! The bed was a bit soft and bouncy for my taste but overall pretty comfy. The pool area is really nice. The decor in rooms are very dated and a bit worn out. We skipped the free breakfast as it is continental, cafeteria style. Overall, a good place...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We did a 14 day tour of California. Southern. Encinitas was on our list and there were so few choices. We didn't want to spend an arm and a leg, but we wanted in the midst of it all, clean, inexpensive. We found it. From the cute rooms with scenic windows , to the free breakfast, to the CLEANLINESS.

Hotel was in a good location, walking distance from the beach. It was very well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. The rooms were big. The breakfast was in a nice area by the pool. I just recommended to check your statement upon leaving.

Excellent breakfast. Mary at front desk was very helpful. Very good room. We will return! First class bed and blinds. The breakfast is a reason for a return stay Corners on bedfre are dangerous and sharp. The driveway should have pedestrian sidewalk, people can get hit. Y incoming car and Best Western could be liable. helpful. Room was excellently.

1 staff member threatened to kick us out because the door was faulty and we needed help which took forever. We found this unprotefessional and rude. The next person we dealt with was friendly kind and apologized but damage was done.

The outside of the hotel is beautiful and has a great view of the ocean. We have stayed in many best westerns and by far this one was the worst. When we got into the room right away we noticed all the stains on the floor and on the couch that had a pull out bed. The bathroom had mold...

And that's about all it has going for it. Staff was courteous but distracted. Room was comfortable but noisy and a touch smelly. View was of the ocean but at an awkward angle. Some small gripes: We are Best Western Rewards members, and there were welcome bags sitting there at check-in...but I didn't get one. (Maybe I needed gold status...

Nice clean and unique hotel, great breakfast and breakfast room, I paid extra for views and it wasn't worth it as the ocean was far away and way off to the side. This was a uniquely designed hotel against the mountain and I thought well designed. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The towels weren't very thick and I was...

Selected this hotel due to the walking distance to the start of the Encinitas Half Marathon. Great view of the ocean from the room, fresh fruit available and healthy breakfast. Only suggestion to start breakfast earlier on race day.
