Want a trip to SeaWorld® or San Diego? You got it. These hot spots are only a short drive away from your Encinitas hotel. However, don't go so fast. Guests get free Wi-Fi and a free continental breakfast to start the day right. Dig into platefuls of piping hot waffles, fresh fruits, delectable pastries and an array of cereals and yogurt. Top it all off with chilled juices and 100% Arabica coffee.

The San Diego Botanical Gardens are a must-see attraction. It's all just a short trip away from your Encinitas hotel.

Our hotel is also conveniently located only 10 minutes (walking distance) away from the Encinitas Station and is a great option for train travelers looking to hit the road.

Of course, taking advantage of your prime location three blocks away from Moonlight Beach, is always a smart move. Take a surfing lesson or join a day cruise downtown San Diego. There's no end to the adventure that's right outside your Encinitas hotel room. Work on getting that perfectly bronzed body or join a sandcastle building competition.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff members are happy to help you plan the perfect vacation. Checking out the local cuisine or day tripping to San Diego are both options. Where do you want to start? Your Encinitas hotel is close to it all.

Reserve your comfortable stay at Best Western Encinitas Inn & Suites at Moonlight Beach for an unforgettable vacation! Enjoy your stay.
