Hotel is okay, the staff is a nightmare
Although the hotel was a bit run down and dirty, it was fine. Location was good, but parking was not. The reason I will never go back is the staff. Apart from being high (and wreaking of Marijuana, the whole lobby did as well) they were extremely rude and could not seem to give any straight answers on anything. In fact, I was charged a fee that was no where on any paperwork I signed. When I asked about it, they were very rude and could not show me anything that stated I would be charged. The icing on the cake was their refusal to give me a receipt for my stay.

The carpet was wet when we entered our room, towels were worn out and small, pillows were way to small for an adult. My husband killed a roach in the bathroom, the parking is TERRIBLE! you had to squeeze your car into pillars after about 5 or 6 tries. I was not impressed with this place. Not staying there again for the money we paid, I would give it a thumbs down.

Perfect price, perfect location, friendly staff. :) We just needed an affordable quick stay by the beach, and this totally worked. Would stay here again.

Terrible. Worst condition I've ever seen regardless of price. I'd call it a dump but I'd be insulting dumps. The wall outlets were cracked. Holes in the walls and ceilings, the towel racks were rusted, the carpets had bumps in them. The bad part was it wasn't even a good deal. Good luck parking. The spaces were between 2 poles which were fine if you had a motorcycle. 5th hotel I've stayed at in he Encinitas area. The ABSOLUTE worst by far
