“downhill fast”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I have stayed at the Ocean Inn/Rodeway Encinitas for almost 20 years. I love the staff here and the service. Recently I stayed a couple of weeks and had to move three times (once due do someone doing a reno next door (room 205), then rock and roll neighbours (room 211) and then incessant recyling of a water system (room 120) and finally (room 207) some idiot that felt he needed to run his a/c all night in room 208 when the temperature outside was lovely.

I am a big favourite of Ocean Inn/Rodeway Encinitas but the noise factor will not encourage me to come again.

Room Tip: Having switched rooms three times, very little to offer in advice.

I was hesitant about staying here after the mixed reviews they got on TripAdvisor. We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Solana Beach, but when the weekend rate got close to $300, we decided to move. I was 100% pleased with this motel. Is it old? Yes, but well maintained and clean. It is within walking distance of the beach. There are several excellent restaurants nearby. Good neighborhood to walk in. And the price was under $100.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor towards the back are quieter.

My wife and I stayed here on 10th July for one night. Great value for money in a clean, fresh room with all the comforts we needed for a single night. The woman on reception gave us a great restaurant tip for the evening. The stay was completed with a great chat with the manager who originated from Watford - just 11 miles from home! Would certainly recommend this motel.

We needed a clean, conveniently located room halfway between Oceanside and San Diego. We found one at the Rodeway Inn. It was quiet and clean and the staff was very nice. There was a nice breakfast in the morning!
It was also located next to a nice oyster house and a few other spots for dining.

I thought the rooms were just "okay". The bed was comfortable enough and the bathrooms were actually rather big. The couch has some stains on it. The breakfast was pretty weak and limited. I wish they had more of a variety. But other than that, it was a good experience. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Would I stay here again? Yea.

There's not much in the area. The 7-11 is a 15-20 minute walk away. And downtown Encinitas is less then a 10 minute bus ride away. However from Encinitas, you can catch the coaster train to San Diego which is cool and convenient if your looking to spending the day down there.

Very disappointing experience. Dirty room, unhelpful staff. Would not return. We were combining work with a beach stay and stayed several times over several weeks. The staff were very indifferent to our requests. The room was dirty, linen not changed (yes!). The breakfast buffet was disappointing. There was a surprising amount of street noise as well.
