Best Western Encinitas Inn & Suites At Moonlight Beach
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Encinitas
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We love this place. Quiet, all amenities we would want yet designed to allow us to do as much as we want. Have stayed here for several years and will continue to do so. We like the fact it is not right next to a busy road. The back side pool area is quiet and relaxing. The new gym is a real plus, but didn't have an opportunity to use it this trip.

This was a nice place to stay. Was near the railroad tracks but never heard the train as it went past. It was a short walk from the beach and if the patio door was open, you could hear the gentle waves as they broke on the beach. the breakfast was limited in selection and could have included a better selection of fresh fruit. The hotel is not new and the rooms could use some décor updating.

Dear Jim29125
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here in Encinitas. We are very conveniently located to the beach and the historic downtown. We offer many amenities here at the hotel that are free: Free Wi-Fi, Free Parking, Free Fitness Center, Free Deluxe Continental Breakfast. We are in a two year long process for renovation. We have already renovated the third floor king rooms with travertine tile in the shower, glass enclosed doors and rain shower heads in the showers. We look forward to offering new rooms on the other floors soon, so bear with us and we thank you for being a loyal Best Western guest.
Warmly,
Christina Beltran

After a greatly needed remodel the room was nice but not much detail was given to the paint job in the dressing and bath. Masking tape left on mirror. Closet and window frames slopped with paint.Water faucet mounted on an angle. Would have liked a dresser with drawers instead of cabinet housing the refer.

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights last week, and we were overaly satisfied with the experience. The hotel room was too dark, even with all the lights on, and the beds sagged a lot. It could definitely be cleaner, but was decent enough. Price was quite good for what we got, but I'd pay more for cleaner, brighter, and more comfortable accommodations. Breakfast was good, and employees very nice and helpful.

Third visit here. Very loud party going on at the pool. Live band. Trouble is, the band stinks. It's now almost 9:00pm. Okay, not that late, but this is a total lack of class.

The room is spacious, but lacks furniture. There is this very large open space in the sitting area that goes unused for lack of anywhere to sit. It's really kind of weird.

The room is clean, plenty of towels, lots of closet space, a really nice bed, and a great balcony, with a distant ocean view. The televisions are a large size, but the sound is not in sync with the picture.

As a diamond level rewards customer I expect to be greeted as such. Didn't happen. While the desk clerk wasn't unfriendly, I expected more.

Don't know if I'll be back.

Dear Sir

We are deeply sorry for what occurred. The noise and disruption from the Cabana room that was rented out should not have happened. It is our goal to have the comfort and peace of all our guests in mind. We are a very family friendly hotel and many guests do leave satisfied with their experience. We do hope you will return and give us another try. We have taken steps to ensure this problem does not occur again.

We thank you for your business,
Warmly,
Christina Beltran

The hotel over all was great. The room was really clean, spacious and had a very comfortable feel to it. The mini fridge wasn't that cold but it did the job. Our friend who had the luxury of sleeping on the sofa bed said he would have been better off sleeping on the floor due to the mattress being so thin that you could feel every spring. The pool is only 5 FT. deep but was warm and good for a quick wake me up dip. I will definitely be staying her again next time I'm in town.
