“Our Stay in Encinitas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

We stayed at this hotel because it was recommeded to us by several people. Our stay was excellent. 3-4 blocks from the beach, balcony view of the beach, clean rooms, comfortable beds, staff was very helpful, swimming pool and jacuzzi clean, breakfast very good, and location to downtown about 3 blocks. We definitely would stay there again

very old and poorly kept up . price too high for the quality . would not stay there again. the y did not even have a microwave in the room . They should really consider updating the decor . I do have to say that the front desk personal were quite friendly and pleasant. Free breakfast was okay.I have too say i was pleased they had free breakfast.

Very clean hotel, comfy bed, extremely friendly and helpful staff. I stayed just one night and the furnishings were quite new. The breakfast was the typical hotel chain food but fresh. A selection of fruit too. the coffee was good, not weak like most hotel chains. All in all a good stay.

Great value & experience. We loved theTerrific location also!! If we were in the area again we would definately stay at this hotel. Best Western is a great hotel chain and always seems to super succeed in value. We stay at alot of hotel chains but Best Western seems to always come out on top for the price you pay, very affordable and always friendly staff, keep up the good job!!

The rooms were spacious and the kitchenette was very convenient. Even though we couldn't reserve an 'ocean view' room (we had our dog with us) we had a lovely view of the ocean from our patio/balcony. Plenty of room for the 4 of us - 2 adults and 2 kids. The front desk person was very accomodating when we requested a late check out - which was greatly appreciated! The hotel is a fair walk from the beaches - so be prepared.

Room Tip: lower level rooms still have a glimpse of the ocean - ours was quite nice.

Dear travelingfamily4

We are so pleased you had a nice visit here in Encinitas at Best Western Encinitas. We are proud that we are a pet friendly hotel. It means a lot to us that families can still travel and not leave their beloved pets elsewhere. The pet-friendly suites are very nice and spacious for extended stays. We also have dishes that we can bring upon request. The hotel is 3
blocks away from the ocean, it is a good walk from the ocean but not unreasonable. In between the ocean and the hotel, you have the historic downtown Encinitas, which boasts wonderful restaurants and shops.

We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Warmly,

We stayed in this hotel as part of wedding party that had booked a block of rooms. For the area of Southern California we were staying in I expected more. We were upgraded to the Governor's Suite due to overbooking and while larger and appointed with a tufted headboard, jacuzzi tub and 2 adjoining suites it was not what we needed as we had booked a room with a kitchenette and a hide a bed. The room had 3 patios but the patio furniture had cobwebs on it and no patio tables or umbrellas to enjoy it. The lobby was quite a strange arrangement and unwelcoming, but the underground parking was convenient. We didn't even bother to try the continental breakfast by the pool. The hotel was in need of refreshing; fresh paint, cleaning the outside. It served our purpose but I 'm glad I was not there as a retreat.

We stayed in a suite for our family of 5. It was very roomy, with a spacious kitchen and 2 televisions. Check-in staff were friendly and efficient and gave us juicy apples to enjoy. The complimentary breakfast was excellent, with plenty of tasty options for everyone. Walking to the beach was downhill, but walking back would be a bit of a steep hike so we drove most days. It's close to restaurants and shopping. The grounds, breakfast room and our own room were very well-maintained. While night swimming in their pool, we saw bats and an owl swooping about overhead. The kids were thrilled. We would definitely stay here again.
