Econolodge or Best Western Encinitas

I plan to spend a couple of days relaxing, after a business trip. Just walk around, go to the beach, have some decent food and a few local beers, visit the self-realization fellowship. I don't know the area well. I am booked at the Econolodge -- got a cheap price -- but wondering if the Best Western is a better location? I assume they are both safe and clean enough (?) and I don't need fancy. Which would you choose? Which is a better location (closer to town, the beach, etc.)? I can look on a map and see where they are but its hard to tell much without knowing the area. thanks!

No worries regarding safety in either location. BW is closer to downtown old Encinitas and Moonlight Beach, although it is a little over a block east of the coast highway up a hill. Econolodge is really more in Leucadia, closer to Stonesteps beach, a local beach with stairs down from the bluff, no restrooms, etc. Quite a few restaurants nearby and still walkable to downtown Encinitas.

Econolodge is probably more basic than the BW, and I would expect less expensive? Personally I think I'd choose the Econolodge, but then I live in Leucadia! You'll likely be happy in either one.
