Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stay at Cardiff by the Sea, CA Overall the experience was good. My family was excited to see the close proximity of the hotel to the Pacific Ocean, which prompted us to consider staying at the hotel for future stays in the area. September 24, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall great experience Andrew, your staff is great. We have stayed in many hotels across the country and you guys were always willing and able to satisfy our questions and needs. We stayed 12 nights so that gave us a good overall outlook as to how you manage your hotel. We hope to see you all on our next visit. Three cheers to the kitchen staff for their expertise in keeping a lot of people happy at breakfast time. Don & Barbara September 22, 2014

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Personal Experience As most have stated, Holly at reception was very friendly and helpful. Could drive anywhere in about 5 minutes. Disappointed with the housekeeping. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic staff Great hotel and fantastic restaurants nearby. The ocean is 5 minutes away with a great beach and plenty of surfers to watch. September 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed in Encinitas I've always stayed in and recommended Holiday Inn Express; however, this could make me change my mind. Granted it was a busy holiday weekend I was very disappointed in the quality of the hotel, especially for this area. The overall condition was just run down and dirty. The staff was pleasant but not as professional as other Holiday Inns I've stayed at. Breakfast was good and the beds and pillows were comfortable, but that's about all I can say that's positive for this location. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great area, loved the tacos next door This was nice and close to the beach and the third time that my family has stayed at this location. We loved the variety of breakfast foods and enjoyed or brief stay. September 2, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good It was a good hotel. The breakfast was not to my liking. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service The terrific service from check in to check out was outstanding. You should bottle your customer service and sell it. I travel often and generally get good service but this experience was over the top. I stay at this hotel every year and service has always been good but this time oh my, give them all an ataboy. Holly was one whose name I remember. She was truly outstanding in every way. On Fri night we had one of our party that was way too loud and he should have been quited. I know he had been drinking and he can be a pain. The clerk just let it go. I dont know if that was the right move but there were no incidents as a result. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home away from home I stay at this hotel regularly and always the staff are welcoming and the rooms are spacious and clean. I never stay anywhere else when I'm in the area. August 19, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great hotel We were looking for reasonably priced hotel to spend the night . This hotel certainly fit the bill. The staff were friendly, the room was clean, and the free breakfast matched anything you could get at a regular restaurant. We will certainly be staying here the next time we are in the neighborhood. August 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike and Sue from Orange County The hotel is in a great location to San Elijo State Beach. The only problem that we had were ants in the bathroom that took two days for the staff to remedy. the breakfast was good however the staff had to be flagged down to get the breakfast tables cleaned. they were responsive when asked. We would return to this location again. August 10, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value, close to great restaurants Staff was very helpful and professional. Didn't like room location close to the laundry. Otherwise no complaints August 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and excellent customer service! This place had a great location, very close to downtown Encinitas. Breakfast was okay, not the greatest selection. The highlight of our stay is the front desk. I can't remember her name but she looked like she was of Filipina decent. She was friendly and was very helpful with answering questions....since that was the first time we've stayed at the hotel. Overall, a good place to stay. July 24, 2014
