Hotel at a Glance: Days Inn Encinitas

Encinitas is a casual California town with access to Moonlight Beach. The town is marked by a large “Encinitas” sign with plenty to do in and around the area. Encinitas is but a short distance from San Diego, without the hustle and bustle of downtown. A stay here pairs comfort with the exquisite oceanside nature California has to offer.

  • Room with a view: The rooms here are relaxing and comfortable, most have a view of outside where you can view California palm trees and other foliage
  • Rise and shine: This Days Inn includes a complimentary, continental breakfast, complete with coffees and teas, to start the day off on the right foot. Afterward, guests can enjoy other hotel amenities such as the outdoor pool.
  • Explore the neighborhood: This inn is but a short distances away from LEGOLAND, which houses water slides and large LEGO sculptures. A mile down the road from the inn lays Moonlight Beach where locals and visitors swim and surf.
  • Local grub: A classic California In-N-Out is but a short distance from Days Inn Encinitas while there are plenty of local stops such as Mr. Peabody’s Bar & Grill, which hosts daily live music, and Encinitas Cafe, an old-timey diner with breakfast and American cuisine

Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California: Walkable Coastal Town with Famed Surf Spots

Though it occupies just a 2-mile stretch of the Southern California coast, Cardiff-by-the-Sea draws a number of visitors each year, thanks to 900 acres of scenic wetlands and two coveted surf spots. The most popular of these is Cardiff Reef, where rocky bluffs overlook consistent breakers. When the waters recede, snorkelers and swimmers explore tide pools filled with tropical fish. To spot even more wildlife, hit the wetland trails at San Elijo Lagoon, where you can see hundreds of bird species.

Cardiff-by-the-Sea’s three-block-long town center is filled with art galleries, a row of restaurants, and a family-owned donut shop. For big-city attractions, make the scenic 25-mile drive south to San Diego. In the famous Balboa Park, you’ll find a miniature railroad, a vintage carousel, and the San Diego Zoo.

The room was small, but well equiped with mini - fridge, microwave, coffee maker and ironing board. The furniture was worn and outdated, but for the price being just right,what more could you expect? I would definitely be returning.

The rooms were nowhere near as nice as advertised in the Groupon photos. I had to request a better room twice and it was still a horrible room. Chips in the walls, staining in the tubs, weird smell in general. Upon check-in the clerk said they need a card on file it will NOT be charged it’s just for potential incidentals. She lied to me and I was charged a safe fee and she never gave me the code to open the safe. She didn’t even tell me about it I found the charge after the fact. I was told the charge would be reversed immediately and it still hasn’t happened. Since I made my purchase through Groupon my refund request was denied by the hotel staff. Worst hotel I’ve ever seen. $100 a night and it’s complete trash. Don’t waste your money or time here. The experience was garbage.
