Dear KimberleeB

Thank you for taking the time to write to us on Tripadvisor. We are so pleased you enjoyed Best Western Encinitas and Encinitas. Encinitas is so perfectly situated near all the fabulous attractions. You can go to Legoland, hang out by Moonlight Beach, go to downtown San Diego and visit Julian. The best part about Encinitas is the historic dowbtown and of course the Swami's Meditation Gardens. We look foward to having you return to our town and our hotel.

Thank you for being our guest.

Although this is not a 5 star hotel, it gets 5 stars in it's class. We stayed here August 26th to September 10th for business. The hotel was not without it's problems, but what was important was they way they handled them. The staff is very accommodating and gracious, and they strive for 100% guest satisfaction. Our suite was very nice - french doors separating the bedroom from the living room and kitchen. We were on the first floor but we could see a bit of the Pacific Ocean from our balcony. The pool area was very nice, and the breakfast room was especially pleasant, a separate building overlooking the pool. I highly recommend this hotel.

Dear g-locksand3bears

Thank you for taking the time to write to us on Tripadvisor. We value the opinion of our guests. You mean so much to us. We are glad you enjoyed the one-bedroom suite. They do lend themselves well for a longer stay. Encinitas is very special, with the historic downtown one block away and Moonlight Beach three blocks away, you can find so much peace and relaxation. One feature that we love is that each room has their own private balcony. It is nice to sit and have your morning coffee or that sunset glass of wine.

We do hope you will come and see us again,

Warmly

The Encinitas Best Western is the best in Encinitas for comforts, cleanliness, staff friendliness and helpfulness, amenities,location, and cost. This is my second stay there and it keeps getting better.

Beautifully located property just 2 blocks above Moonlight Beach. This location is perfect for access to town, beach and freeway. Close proximity to Starbucks, shopping, and eateries. Property is a bit older; they are just beginning a renovation to update. However, despite the age, all rooms have huge outdoor balconies with lovely views. You will not hear any noise from an adjacent room. The staff is excellent, and definitely works to insure your pleasant stay. I'd definitely highly recommend, and hope to return soon.

If you like old, musty rooms and the sound of trains dancing in your head, than this is the place for you. Good proximity to the beach, but also situated on top of the train station. For what you get, this hotel is severely overpriced. I would not stay here again.

Stayed recently for a family wedding and enjoyed my large modern room. Staff was very accomodating and helpful. Large balcony with an ocean view, helped balance out the older bathroom. The breakfast room was large, airy and offered a good variety of choices. Pool was a nice size although hot tub was small.

Over all very nice stay in a nice, large ocean view room. Big comfortable beds, a little high off the floor, for older folks not sure if they could get up in the bed. Beds could be lower to the floor. The bathroom is a little small and only a shower, no tub, baths could be updated. The ocean is about a block and 1/2 away but a great view. The Coaster train goes by fairly often during the day, and it did not run at night, so the noise did not bother us. Staff was very friendly, needed to be more updated as to the restaurants in the area. We ask for a good steak house and was told we should go to a bar and grill, went by there and checked out the menu - no steak. Checked on our phone and found a excellent place 10 minutes down the road. After 3 nights at the hotel, the breakfast menu of hot items could be changed up. Bacon and egg and cheese omelet every morning, sausage or ham would have been nice, or maybe a choice of two different meats in the morning. But all in all very nice., and would stay here again.
