The location is great. Close to the beaches and the boutique shops. The breakfast was well supplied and the staff was OK. But try Air B&B for better value. After this we found several nice places at 1/3 the cost and much better breakfasts. Doors, shower, lights and heating were broken. Then there was a fire alarm that kept going off at midnight. The fire department showed up and checked things out but it was obvious that the alarm had issues. But the staff blamed it on pranks from kids. No Way!! That was crap. This place needs to be repaired.
The main draw was that it was pet-friendly, so we were able to bring our dogs. Not only that, but there was no extra charge! The hotel was super clean, had a pool and jacuzzi, and hot breakfast in the morning. Very impressed! The biscuits and gravy FTW!!
Charming hotel a short walk from the beach. Very friendly and helpful staff. Parking is a bit tight. Drive a smaller vehicle if you can.
It is about 3 blocks from beach. Deck has ocean views and is great place to have your own happy hour - bring your goodies as rooms have a refrigerator. While not on the beach it is in the small town and there are lots of places to eat in walking distance. The hotel is scheduled to undergo renovation later this year. While room is large, bathroom does not have a private door. Internet is advertised as free and shows up in your room but does not work there and staff did not fix it, so you have to go to lobby. It calls itself a bed and breakfast, but don't expect much other than a continental.
that it was close to food places
Location was a great value. Near a fantastic family beach town. We will stay again next summer.
Good stay at an older facility. Clean and comfortable.
My wife and I stayed for just one night. Everything was clean, worked and the room was quiet . The biggest bathroom that I've seen in a motel - ever! We would stay here again.
Close to beach
location, value and comfort The service from the staff working at the desk at night could be better. Continental breakfast can be a little better.
The staff were all very nice. It was located less than a mile from the wedding that I was attending. I was upgraded to a suite. The bed was wonderful (better than some 4 star hotels I've stayed at).
nothing TV didn't work right. reception was fuzzy, remote didn't work. Complained, wanted different room, they sent a person wwho reset the TV, when I returned, still sucked. I had a 7 inch samsung tablet that mysteriously dissapeared from the room. Other that they said they would ask the staff, nothing turned up.
Somewhat dirty, gnats in our room the whole stay, light went out, fridge didn't work, a/c kept turning off.
Close to my families home Old facility, rooms too small, doors open to outside.
Location was good just a few blocks from moonlight beach. Pool was a filthy mess and out of service. The room floors made your feet and socks black they were so dirty. Don't think I would stay there again!!!
close to beach (3 blocks)great park across the street,close to shopping and resturants
We lived the location and the room and the staff was accommodating. Modern design was open and fresh. Bed was very firm, as were all pillows. Rowdy guests were very loud into the early morning and ruined our short stay at the pool area.
Location about a 10min walk from the beach and 15-20min walk from the train. Nice facilities though on site Starbucks is very expensive (greater than airport prices). Evening staff not very knowledgeable/communicative about area in terms of transport, restaurants, beach access. Better in the morning.
Justin helped us when we checked in and was nice and helpful. That was all I like about it. I have stayed in other Courtyards and I was surprised by how it lacked so much compared to the other Courtyards. The "bistro" is a small fast food type place and their idea of Starbucks is about 5 coffee drinks they make. Their hot tub sits about 4 adults and 1 fire pit. The rooms have no thermostats to control heat/cool, so I was getting up all night trying to get the room warm. The toilet kept making a noise when flushed and when I told them about it, they didn't even apologized. For the amount I paid, I expected it to be like the other Courtyards I have stayed at. I would recommend staying at the Holiday Inn down the street, alot nicer and cheaper.
Great courtyard area for gathering after a great day. The staff! Starbucks steps away for a morning wake up call. Nothing
Proximity to where I needed to be. Useless restaurant, construction in process, faux wooden floor in room (no carpet), expensive and dangerous parking.
Staff vas extremely nice, you definitely feel welcome! From outside this place looks more like a motel, but we were surprised how nice it is inside - definitelly hotel like! Best value for the money! Excelent quality, serviceeven incl. breakfast for this money nothing to mention here
Man let me tell you about this hidden gem. For 60 bucks Im over here thinking i should be getting a very basic cheap room with a bed or somethin. I mean hotels in the area where hitting $130-250 a night. Man i just wanted a room where i knew i was gonna live. Well not only did i get a room that was CLEAN as can be but the room also had about a 40" flat screen tv sitting on the wall. So im thinking cool i cashed out 60 bucks on a room i feel safe enough in and for the money im like "I came up on a deal" but then...smh (this is a good smh lol) but then I walk into one of the cleanest and roomiest bathrooms ive ever seen. This bathroom was like half of the room size. LoL but it gets better....i turn to the right and find one of the greatest surprises a guy on a business trip could ask for...your talkin about a HUGE jacuzzi freakin tub with bubble jets and a timer. Ohhh i couldn't wait to jump in with my girlfriend. HaHa and unlimited hot water. Man was it well worth the 60 bucks! "Where i come from we gotta shower in under 15mins or we lose the hot water". (Thats a bad smh lol) Encinitas has an old school beach surfers town to it; with a fish taco restaurant next door and a bar 20 steps away that has 4 pool tables only a buck each. So to conclude my good friends, YES I will be back. Cheers. Only positive vibes my friends. I enjoyed my self way to much to be mad at anything. Cheers!
Area Bed and one small pillow Dirty upholstered chairs
Noisy at night from parking lot.
This was a good stopover place on a trip. The location was good, close to the beach and restaurants. The room was a bit outdated. In addition, there was not breakfast.
Location, classic motel with good value for money Carpet a bit run down
Nice size room. Close to the beach and nice restaurants. The free wifi was nice. Room was clean. No breakfast. Parking is next to impossible at night. The woman at front desk answered us as curtly as possible.
Excellent value for the money and amazing location right on coast highway. Also has a fridge and microwave for those leftovers you'll encounter with all the wonderful places to eat here. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I'll be staying here again when I'm in the area. Pillow could be thicker but honestly this is me looking for something to put in the negative box here but so minuscule really.
Good price Needs a complimentary breakfast
The hotel photos include a beach pic which makes no sense because this place is definitely not on the beach. Additionally, the bathroom smelled like cigarette smoke so bad that it was nauseating.
Clean, comfortable room, near restaurants and shops, quiet (off season stay), free parking, good deal Skip breakfast here and go downtown!
The price was great and the area is quiet. The towels could be better.
the location is convenient, within walking distance from the beach. the room's clean and comes with all basic amenities. although we were told that the room came with a wireless service, getting online was impossible. The parking was very difficult. the space was cramped and it was extremely difficult for us to get our car in without hitting anything so after a few tries, we decided to park on the street nearby.
Nice Hotel. Friendly Staff. Room Request Accomodated. I had neglected to give the front desk my Choice Hotel points card. when i asked if they could add it in after i checked out they said no.
Very convenient location, reasonable price.
Good breakfast, very nice and helpful staff, near Encinitas beach, washing mashines and dryer for guests available, clean rooms, microwave and fridge available. Everything was fine.
only the location outdated and ugly decor
Location is good, near the beach and only a few miles down the freeway from Legoland. Shopping areas nearby. Ha ving a fridge and microwave in the room was nice and gave us the option to bring cereal and milk and not have to pay for the breakfast as we eat light anyway. Hotel is older and not as "neat" as it could be, although the room was clean. Hotel is near the train line, which wasn't mentioned in other reviews, and I did hear the train's whistle even later at night.
Near the beach and much cooler than in the desert. Good location, breakfast was just ok, could have had more variety. Not real clean
cost, hair dyer, folding of the wash cloths and towels
Beds were comfortable, bathroom was very clean. Your desk clerk was great. In ouur 1st room, the pull out couch couldn't pull out all the way due to barricade in the way. Then couch got stuck and wouldn't fold back up. The lovely young woman at the desk was great - she found us another room which was nice. Our keys didn't work, so she gave us the master. She was very accommodating, and I'm sure it was a stressful situation for her. Coffee pot was broken.
Walking distance to the beach and town of Encinitas Parking was tight
Very good location. N/A
The location to the beach and the view from the rooms. The mattress, towels, sheets and pillows need to be replaced along with updating the entire hotel.
I love the location of this hotel and have stayed here a few times before. It is a very nice hotel to stay in. And they are dog friendly too which is a big plus.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Towels were a dingy gray...all three days. Microwave oven delivered to room was filthy. Erratic WiFi connecticity.

Clean & newly remodeled! It was just close enough to the beach and main board walk without paying the same price for a ran down beach hotel. The breakfast was good and overall it had a great family environment!
Good location, friendly staff, good free breakfast Water shut off during shower on 2/21/16 @ 10am. Dog barking all night form car in parking lot. No ice machine on floor 2 and floor 1 ice machine did not work. Had to request extra towels twice. No towels at swimming pool.
Location was very easy for getting around town.
The staff was helpful and friendly. Plus location to the sea was great. Yes, the couch was torn up. We reported it to hotel staff. But no one showed up in inspect. The entire time we were concerned that we were going to blamed. Not fun! We did not feel comfortable sitting on it. So we had to sit on chairs to watch tv.
Great location, free parking, great free breakfast. Our room smelled moldy, had water stains and a cracked ceiling. The patio under us had a huge dog who peed and crapped twice and the odor wafted up all morning. There was no hot water and the elevators didn't work all three days. They were understaffed.
Nice size room. Location was west of the freeway - near the ocean. Nice shower. Nice to have a patio. Room was very dark, chair was damaged with scratches (by a pet?). Parking lot was challenging when pulling a trailer - very difficult to turn around. Pet area not clean - trash overflowing and pet droppings left behind. View from room was of freeway.
Stayed there 5 nights for a horse show. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. The room and bathroom was clean. Air conditioner, refrigerator and microwave worked. The tv was big and worked. Good breakfast for the price (it is included). I liked that the hotel texted and asked if everything was in order. Nice touch. The parking spots were quiet small. There was plenty of parking spots, but all the ones by my room were designated compact, and they were not kidding. Also, no dresser in my room. I le oils have preferred less open space and a dresser.
Pet Friendly Good price Close to everything Fridge actually kept things cold Small parking spots Lack of electrical outlets
As always, the stay was perfect. We have always loved the location and the neighborhood surroundings. The proximity of the oceamore timen and the beach is priceless. Lots of local shops and restaurants make this an ideal stay for other hotels at a much higher price. Keep up the good work! Leaving. Wanted more time. .
The room smelled stale and faintly of smoke that was covered up. I could not get the shower to produce hot water the first morning so a cold shower. I reported this to the staff and they assured me it would be fixed, but no compensation for the cold shower. The next morning the same thing happened, until I figured out "the trick" to getting the shower to work. Otherwise it was Ok.
Location Found what looked to be rabbit or some other small creatures poop under the bed, in addition to what looked like a bottle of lube under the bed as well. This makes me sick writing about it! The worst part is that I had two children playing in the room. I'm disgusted by both the hotel employees and the guest who allowed their animal to do this! This is my second stay with a choice hotels chain and there is a slim to none chance I will choose them again. The first time none of my locks worked on the door (AZ hotel). So, anybody could walk right in and help themselves to my stuff. On top of that I have heard nothing back from management.
I have a bad back and the bed was comfortable enough to keep from tossing and turning. Rooms had refrigerators and microwaves. Free continental breakfast until 9am was completely put away at 8:45. Glad I had some food with me.
