Clerk said 2:00 was ok. I landed early and called to,see if my room was ready. They said yes but it was $25. I told the guest services manager the clerk never mentioned the fee. He said "I don't know that for sure". Basically calling me a liar....I was appalled and asked him to please waive the fee, he said...

Great place to relax and enjoy beautiful views of ocean on the large balcony off the bedroom. We have stayed here several times and always are happy with our room. We stay on the third floor to have maximum view.

I found this hotel on a previous trip to San Diego while I was looking for parking at Moonlight Beach. This hotel is within walking distance to Moonlight Beach and downtown Encinitas, which is exactly what I wanted. The staff is incredible, I could not have asked for better service. The rooms are large and if you are lucky, you...

This is a wonderful pet friendly Hotel. Very spacious rooms with a lovely little kitchen. Bathroom is small but nice. Great large balcony with a beautiful view. The FREE breakfast was really good. The room we were in was very quite. The beds & pillows were very comfortable. We slept very well. Look forward to staying here again.

Next to freeway and train. You will not sleep well here. Rooms are big, kitchen was nice and close to town and beach. But it's proximity to freeway and train make it impossible to get a restful sleep.
