Top Places to Stay in Encinitas

Encinitas is the getaway of a lifetime.  No question.  But if you’re planning to visit, you’re going to need a place to stay.  Thankfully, with lodging options in every category and every budget, this seaside vacation destination has something for everyone.

Many locals don’t know this, but our part of town has the only five-star hotel in San Diego –  the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa.  This over-the-top Carlsbad hotel, the Grand Del Mar a few miles south, and the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort are luxe options that provide that classic ‘cation experience.

If you’re looking for a bed and breakfast, try the Pelican Cove Inn, which is perfectly situated in the heart of downtown Carlsbad.  Other best bets include the surf-themed Cardiff-by-the-Sea Lodge and the Kate Stanton Inn.

For bargains, there’s the West Inn Suites in Carlsbad, the Best Western Encinitas Inn & Suites at Moonlight Beach, and the Moonlight Beach Motel.  For vacation rentals, visit VRBO or airbnb for more information.
