The Quality Inn is a great place to stay in Encinitas. Close to I-5, 20 minutes to San Diego, lots of great close (within a mile) eateries, and wonderful beaches. The hotel is well maintained and the pool and jacuzzi are cleaned each day. We stayed on the side facing away from

Wow, I hate to give lousy reviews, but this place worked for it. Check in late, desk clerk was great. Found our room, bummer, should have slept in the truck. Room smelled like a cat had marked its territory. Cleaning was marginal. Next morning went to breakfast at 9:20, didn’t

This was our third time staying at this hotel. Pretty good stay overall, although the ice machine did not work, the tv kept going in and out and the toilet being lose. Our room was always clean and it was quite even with being near the freeway.

is there a hold on my card if i book through the choice hotel site?
Hello! It depends on whether the rate states advance pay/pre-paid or a non-cancellation policy. The 20% - 25% discount advance purchase rate is usually a prepaid rate. Your card would not be charged if you were to use a AAA or best available rate. Best method of all is to always call the hotel. You are guaranteed a reservation and there are no holds on your accounts. Our number is 760-944-3800. Thank you for your interest in us! We hope to see you soon.

is there a hold on my credit card if i book online, to pay when I arrive?
Hello! That really depends on where and how you book. If you are booking anywhere it states prepaid, you are being charged for the room in advance. You can always book through the hotel at 760-944-3800 and you will be charged during check-in, not at booking. Thank you for your interest in our hotel! We look forward to seeing you!

do you have a shuttle for visiting area attractions?
$9 - $12 bucks to Legoland. That's cheaper than the parking fee.

"Some rooms allow pets. We have no pets, and our “pet friendly” room did not have any pet odor."

"higher floors away from pool are quieter"
