Econo Lodge Encinitas Moonlight Beach
Ranked #9 of 9 Hotels in Encinitas
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The hotel and room were very clean and the front office staff was great. The bed and pillows were great. As an added plus there is a bar sink, microwave and mini-fridge. The hotel is in a great location and is about a 15 minute walk from shopping and restaurants in Encinitas. It's also a 2 block walk from Sand Steps beach. The beach is below a steep cliff, but there are stairs and a life guard tower.

Room Tip: Room 106 has a bar sink, microwave and mini-fridge

This was our 5th or 6th stay at this property. The value is very good. They created a new breakfast area since our last stay . . . a great improvement. It is located in a separate room with several tables and chairs. Before this new eating space, the breakfast fare was placed on a counter in the lobby, with very limited seating. For this stay we had a queen bed in room 113. While it had all of the necessary amenities (fridge, microwave, flat screen (lots of channels),coffee maker, etc.), the bathroom sink counter space was practically non-existent. If this matters to you, be sure to check it out. Even though a typical continental breakfast is included, I highly recommend a breakfast place called Pannikin Coffee & Tea, located about 2 blocks north of the Motel, on the same side of Hwy. 101, in an old yellow house. Very eclectic. Huevos Rancheros . . . one of my favorites!

Room Tip: Make sure the bathroom sink counter space works for you.

Stayed 2 nights this June and slept so soundly that I missed breakfast because the bed & pillows were so comfortable! The staff were friendly and efficient and the room & grounds were very clean. Beach, restaurants & shopping all within walking distance. Good value for your money.

Room Tip: Second floor, west side of building was nice & quiet

We stay here every year when we visit and we are always happy and more than satisfied with our experience. The staff/owners are always pleasant and go beyond to assist you in any way they can. Accommodations are always clean, and we can always count on a pleasurable stay. We would like to request one consideration for the owners.......please consider getting new bed mattresses.

I was a little hesitant to book here; although, it was considerably less expensive and in a good location for access to restaurants and beach. After reviewing other comments, I decided to go for it. The room was clean and comfortable and no noise at night. There's also a GREAT coffee shop just a few minutes walk North on PCH (Pannikin Coffee).
