“Encinitas the sweet funky town I remember”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

This hotel is clean with firm bed and close to all the great surf spots of northern San Diego county.
After paying too much for a hotel in mission beach I found this newer hotel just south of Carlsbad. The location is the sweet town of Luecadia which has not changed much since I lived here in 1972. This hotel is reasonable, clean, has great tv, a microwave and a fridge. Perfect for a surf or a family trip to the local beaches.

Just wanted to share a quick note. We recently had to stay here due to water repairs on our home and loved it. It was budget friendly, the management REALLY cares about their guests and the quality of the stay (I think they live on site...so you never have to worry about not getting the service you need if something happens.), and the cleaning people really do a good job (unlike the quick swipes a lot of places limit their effort to). It was quite and the doors are all outside doors...which is nice. The rooms are large...windows in bathrooms...which I don't even have in my spacious home. Decent sized ice boxes. Microwaves and nice TV's. Specially if you are traveling with family....I'd stay here. The location off the 101 can't be beat. You avoid a whole lot of 5 traffic taking the 101.

This small motel is conveniently located near the beach on a quiet stretch of old Pacific Coast Highway. Recently remodeled, the rooms are fresh and clean. Staff is pleasant, competent, helpful. Parking is easy. Stayed four days, never heard a train. No swimming pool and the continental breakfast is a bit spare, but competitive reasonable prices make this a great value.

Room Tip: Room 221 is an end room close to stairs with an extra side window for great cross ventilation.

Let me start by saying we drove 12 hours from Southern New Mexico and I am 27 weeks pregnant. We were tired and sore when we got in. The front staff member was very courteous and gave us directions to several beaches when asked. The room was very clean. I was concerned when I sat on the bed, as it seemed really hard, but I can tell you that I had the best nights sleep I've had in literally years (car accident 3 years ago messed up my back and neck). No pain at all when I woke up. There isn't a pool, but that is fine with the beach being right down the road (10 minute walk). A continental breakfast is offered starting , but we had to hit the road early, so didn't get to experience it. All in all, we weren't really expecting much, but were very pleasantly surprised with this place. We will stay there again.

The rooms are very clean . The management staff lives on sight and they are very friendly and do a great job. Great location. They offer a continental breakfast which is convenient. The beds are comfortable.

I admit I was skeptical about staying here after reading some reviews, so glad I ignored them!
Clean rooms, decent shower, new, firm bed. Didn't really notice train noise, but if you're a light sleeper - take earplugs! Can't wait to stay here again!

I was skeptical about staying in a "Inn" because Im use to a hotel w/ 3 stars. My boyfriend and I agreed that we had a pleasant stay. The reception was soo sweet, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We will stay again on our next visit to Encinitas
