    The beds were nice and comfortable. Good sheets. Shoddy furniture

    The toilet overflowed and the shower didn't work.

    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.

    Good

    Near the beach and much cooler than in the desert. Good location, breakfast was just ok, could have had more variety.

    Not real clean

    1/2 mile from beach, rooms clean.

    Rooms a bit cramped. Quite a few stairs. Parking underneath was hard to negotiate due to support posts.

    Superb

    We liked walking to the beach - good location. Breakfast was good and it is convenient to have a fridge and microwave in the room.

    Very good

    Quiet. Bedding was great (mattress, pillows and comforter). Staff was great, but did not know about public transportation. i.e. buses

    Dirty carpet. Bathtub looked dirty. Hotel directory advertised breakfast was free, but I charged $5 per day. Why???? Locks on iside door did not appear to be secure--only tacked to the door on a thin pick of wood.

    If you want a cheap hotel, this is it! I cannot believe we paid $5.00 per day for a buffet breakfast. You choices were greasy sausage patties and microwave cooked eggs; pretty gross. There was a mention of muffins, however we were in the lobby at 9:00a.m. and there were no muffins. Needless to say we did not eat there and wasted $15.00. Our room was basic. Found socks under our bed; they did not belong too us. Would not stay there again. As for walking distance to the beach, if you have kids with toys you would not want to walk it.

    Superb

    5 minute walk from beach in Encinitas. Also within a minute of lots of good restaurants. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was modest but enough to get started for the day. Combination pool / spa (read as a single hot small pool) was clean and nice after swimming in the cool ocean.

    Parking is extremely tight so do not park onsite if you have anything larger than a compact car or you will damage your vehicle bumping into concrete columns.

    Good

    Very close to beach and stores. Inexpensive price for the location.The refrigerators were large. The sheets were clean and smelled fresh.

    The room smelled and decor was old, dated, and gave the impression of dingy. The wireless internet never worked properly.The parking was impossible and limited. If you have a larger car you had better be one of the first 12 guest to grab a parking space.

    I could not get my car in parking lot- Parking spaces and driveway are to narrow. Should have told me this when making resavations. Put me on third floor and I have a bad heart. Took a while to get up the stairs. I guess I should ask about all of these before making resavations.
