Thinking about Econolodge Moonlight beach. Has anyone stayed here recently. On a budget and this works for us seniors. Please let me know if this is clean and safe. Used to live in SoCal so know area and have a rental car. Thanks for your response and help.

Certainly safe! Have not been inside so cannot tell you about cleanliness or amenities. Have you read the reviews on this site??? It is just down the way from The Pannikin a popular local spot for breakfast/coffee. I'd say it is a typical retro basic motel and if that is OK with you then it is just fine.

Missed seeing this last week when you originally posted, but of course dependable Riff M never misses anything! I don't really have much to add as I've never been inside the rooms of the Econo Lodge either. I do walk by there frequently and the property looks well maintained from the outside. It is definitely a good location here in north Encinitas, walkable to the beach, restaurants and some galleries and shops.

I looked at the reviews here on TA and they seem accurate as far as location, etc, so I would expect that they're fairly reliable regarding the rooms also.

Anyway, maybe bumping this back up to the top of the CA forums will get the attention of someone with more info.

...prefer the location and ocean views of Moonlight Beach Motel better, if they have availability. I think it's in the same price point but it's such a good location it is often booked well in advance....

Sorry I missed this one too, but with 82 reviews and an 80% rating on positive reviews I'd say it is pretty good. The area is certainly fine.

I've never stayed at the Econolodge specifically, but the area around Moonlight beach is very safe and clean!
