Despite being right off the freeway, you don't hear it. It's on a hill so the arrangement is a bit weird as it slopes. The parking lot also slopes. There's a nice water and ice dispenser in one just off the lobby. But the 24 hour coffee dispenser taste really watered down. There's a breakfast buffet, with waffles, turkey sausage, thinly cut bacon, potatoes and your usual continental breakfast fares. The tea is standard no-frills Bigelow brand. There is no TV checkout. They don't really mention the parking fee but I saw it tacked on the room charge later. They do provide amenities if you forget something but this time they ran out of shaving cream. The curtains were not true blackout curtains. The bathroom looks like during the last remodeling they took out the tub, and put in a shower, so it's a bit narrow. All the lobby's couches had USB/charging options built-in.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel was located right off of the highway but you would not know it. Everyone was great to deal with throughout our stay. It seems to have been recently redone and it shows. The look is modern and attractive. It is close to downtown within 30 minutes drive It is close to the beach and you can enjoy Cardiff by the Sea with the beach and stores. We will return.

Hotel is located close to all that San Diego has to offer. The staff was friendly and helpful! I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a vacation to Southern California, or just needing a place to stay and get some rest on a road trip.

We planned a trip to Encinitas and wanted to find something close to the beach. This hotel was amazing, accommodations have been updated, the breakfast buffet was awesome and so was the staff. I look forward to visiting again!
