    We really loved reception, it was friendly. There were bacon, fruit and hot waffles at breakfast. Nice place for exploring Encinitas.

    I chose this hotel, with a little hesitation due to the bad reviews I saw on the site, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt because the pictures looked just like what we wanted, and I am happy to report it was better than we thought, the room looks exactly like the picture and is even more comfortable, and the continental breakfast was delicious! The bacon no so good but the sausage was great! Lol We were able to relax and the spa was very nice! Great service, clean and comfortable, what else can you asks for! I think the people who left the other not so good reviews must be a little uptight, because I had none of those bad experiences! Our friends stayed at the Hilton down the street and they even wish they would have stayed at our hotel!

    Nothing bad to say, had a great time, and there were no hidden charges!

    very little

    The room smelled. The tub was full of hair. They were vacuuming the lobby when we arrived and it was very loud and the filter must have been full cause it smelled musty and dusty. The food was inedible.

    Nice

    Convenient to the freeway and local attractions (Legoland, etc.), within 1 mile of the beach.

    Furnishings and appointments are lovely but worn and need replacing, a deep cleaning would also help. The duvets are comfortable, but worn thin and sagging in areas where guests have sat. The sheets also bear signs of overuse. Carpets were filthy with permanent stains from previous guests. There were hairs on the nightstand, scrapes on the walls, dirt in the cracks of the floors and baseboards. The elevator smelled like spoiled milk. The hotel has undergone changes in corporate affiliations 2-3 times in the last 10 years, that I am aware of. Whether the owners or management has changed, I don't know; but the signs of neglect are clear.

    The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was enjoyable.

    The first room assigned to my family and I was dirty and the refrigerator had mold in it.

    Good tv, w/ remote. Internet access, WIFI, A/C worked but really old. Lots of hot water, but slippery tub as it had been cleaned, but not rinsed.. . Room looks nice when you enter. but the quality is not there, Felt like a refurbished motel from the 60's.

    Worst bed we've ever slept on, and the most lumpy little foam pillows ever. Avoid this one. Not up to 3-star quality in my book. Even the coffee pot dissapointed as it was dirty and full of grinds from the last guest. This is the first review I've ever stopped to write, because I was so let down by this one.

    Great

    This hotel was very good - parking access was excellent - and the room was quiet - overall - windows double pane shut out most of the road traffic nearby - only one thing - the heavier drapes only were side decorative and there was a large gas station sign that lit up the window - i would add another sheer that cuts the ligjt from that sign

    It was close to the San Elijo beach / camp area. They stored our paddle boards and had a nice light breakfast.

    I didn't like that the room wasn't clean as well as it should have been. There were hairs in the bed, mold in the bathtub and I called and asked for the bathtub drain as ours was missing and the front desk told me to stuff a towel in it..Not good costumer service..It

    1.) Iron didn't work. Told front desk. No change in p.m. 2.) TV came on by it self at 3:30 a.m. - both nights. Told front desk. Did not believe me. 3.) Lots of screaming kids...walls too thin. You wake up at 6:00a.m. if you want to or not. AWFUL!!! You need to change "Than" to "Then" in statement above next to the 'bad' or 'good' line. Please learn to use English correctly!
