First the front desk staff is clearly unfriendly. But the manager over there is a liar and a crook. She charged us $55 for "cleaning" but refuses to show evidence of this. First she claimed they had to replace the mattress, but then she changed her story. Guess what a mattress doesn't cost $55! It's a lot more than that...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and will stay again some day. We were not sure what to expect when we first arrived because of the location, right on the PCH, right next to the railroad tracks and let's face it, we hadn't stayed in a "motel" in a very long time. We were thoroughly surprised. Neither the...

I stand by my review of Rodeway Inns. I stayed at the one in Carlsbad in 2012 and was pleasantly surprised. I've read some reviews of this place and I believe the rating should be higher. 1st this is a basic hotel/motel but it doesn't try to say it is anything else. If you're looking for something inexpensive and don't...

The young lady in the evening when we checked in was very nice and went out of her way to be helpful. Unfortunately, I don't recall her name. Everything in the room looked relatively new. Large flat-screen TV with cable channels, I hate dark, dingy, depressing hotels with lights that appear to be 3-watt bulbs. This hotel was a nice...

Reserved a ground floor room because of limited mobility from MS and replacement knees. MS makes me sensitive to heat, which drains energy and exacerbates symptoms. We checked in at around 6 pm and found the only apparent staff member rude, surly and argumentative from the moment we arrived. Paid for the room online but the clerk insisted on running...

I so enjoyed my stay there. The staff were wonderful and very obliging. The room was quiet and very comfortable. Encinitas and Leucadia are such fabulous places. Highly recommended. You can also walk to the beach.

It appears Roadway Inn Encinitas has changed management and not to the best interest of the Inn. I am a continuing customer and have always had a pleasant stay until last week when I inadvertently hit the send button instead of cancellation. I immediately called Priceline and as always they wanted to accommodate me; however, upon calling the Hotel, and...

Very fortunate to have found this small motel. Great rate ($55) for a clean room with comfortable bed, microwave, small frig, and good size TV. Within walking distance of coffee shop, small grocery & restaurants. Encinitas has some beautiful beaches!
