This is a fabulous place! Walking distance to the San Diego Botanical Gardens, beach, restaurants, etc. The nicest accommodation I have been in in years! The price is reasonable and the location is wonderful. There are many things for families with children to enjoy in the area!

The rooms were perfect for our large family of 6. The kids loved the pool. The beds were comfortable. Very close to moonlight beach and downtown Encinitas. We will definitely come back. We enjoyed our stay very much. We would have stayed there a week if we had the time to.

We recently stayed here due to a remodel at our condo and the staff was great! Cameron at the front desk helped me get on the internet so I couold complete some work. We moved to another room because we extended our stay (our condo wasn't ready) and the staff was extremely helpful. Thank you for giving such exceptional service!!

Visited relative in Cardiff. We got a good deal on a queen bed suite with sofa bed and kitchenette. Although it was on the 1st floor we could still the ocean from our balcony and the sunsets were beautiful. Yes, you overlook train tracks and part of the city, but it was still nice. Train wasn't that loud. Nice to have the train depot within walking distance to go up north or downtown. Also 2 blocks from Interstate 5 which takes you everywhere. 4 block walk to Moonlight beach was nice and to the main street where there are tons of restaurants and shops. We loved Swami's for lunch, Ken's Vietnamese (out of this world Pho noodle soup), and Siamese Basil (but be careful, food is as spicy as you want it to be, and on a scale from 1 to 10...5 was HOT). The Fish Market downtown San Diego and one in Del Mar are both excellent too. Hike around Torrey Pines and go down the trail to the beach. Beautiful views. Park on the road free and walk in, avoid $15 parking fee. Really unique shops also in Solana Beach just down the road. We love the Encinitas/Cardiff area.

For a non-Plus/Premier Best Western Hotel the amenities exceeded my expectations. Great room/suite for family stay at a fair price. Breakfast was good; swimming pool kept clean. Loved being so closed to the beach!

Love this hotel, proximity to beach and train station is GREAT. Very good value. We can't wait to stay here again. The pool isn't big but is a beautiful setting and overall landscaping is nice. Front desk area is strange and staff there was just okay but location to everything overrides all!

We recently stayed at the Best Western in Encinitas, CA for a Mother's Day weekend. We had a terrible experience with guests around us in the hotel coming in between 1am and 4am, slamming doors, talking and knocking loudly. We specifically requested a quiet room, but our request was ignored and were told there were "several weddings in town". We expected better and were very disappointed.
