Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by El Lobo Hotel needs maintence
See above for a list of comments. We are not as happy as we have been in the past. In the past we have stayed in many different rooms of the same Hotel in Encinitas and the rooms are not all the same in size inside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElwoodBlues Nice rooms and friendly staff
I've stayed here a few times. The staff is always friendly and efficient, they sometimes have treats at the front desk, and the rooms are nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alanabana2 Great location and service!
We were moving and couldn't get to our new home in time. I booked the Holiday Inn that day and reservations were very easy.
We were pleasantly surprised by our stay, the comfort of the bed and amenities were nice! It was great they allowed dogs as well

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by H1950 This site needs to be upgraded
I found the staff at the Encinitas - Cardiff Beach HIE very helpful. They took the time to suggest several restaurants to me when I checked in. My concern is the hotel is looking shabby. The carpets are well worn, the paint on the walls needs to be redone and the interior door handle covers are falling off. While the staff has done a beautiful job of presenting themselves, the hotel owners have fallen down on the job. I travel a great deal in my job and this is only the second time that I have come across a HIE that was in this state of disrepair. I hope that it will be brought up to the typical high standards of the rest of the chain.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peahawk Regular customer visit observations
Overall, this Holiday Express THIS time was not as courteous upon reception and follow through as it has been in the past. Over the long pull, it offers excellent value and receives you over the phone extremely well. What we'd ask is that the ability to greet with a smile and then follow up requests accurately be there next time. Overriding all that could be better is the value of the night's stay including the food offerings (:))).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MichaelS Hotel can use some improvement on breakfast
The dining area was always full when we went during our two-day stay, and the tables were almost all dirty because neither the staff nor most of the guests would help clean them up.
A best part of the food was the automatic pancake machine, which unfortunately ran out of batter constantly and was not refilled timely because the hotel was understaffed during breakfast. People would line up for a long time for the pancakes.
