Reviewed yesterday NEW

The grounds are immaculate and the staff is noticeably the most accommodating and friendly I have encountered. The restaurant on site is not only convenient but served delicious food. The room was like a small apartment. Overall, a wonderful experience.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Last night of seven day Central California vacation so thought we'd go a little more reasonable on last night. When we planned trip a while back we booked high-end hotels so thought we'd go lower budget for the last night. Lower budget yes, but this hotel had all the amenities (if not more), than the higher end places we stayed...

Took our grandson and two of his friends to meet up with their senior class after a ball game that had to play in. Just spent the night and left early the next morning. Only used the hotel as a place to sleep because the class was here.

Encino Lodge & Suites in general offers a nice, safe, comforting, peaceful surrounding. Good for those who need hospital care, or other. The grounds are maintained nicely, and the small pool setting nice to have access too.

We usually travel BW and have come to expect typical rooms. This was a little small but all was updated, very clean and supplied with wonderful treats. The bathroom was especially nice. There was also a cafe/ bar on the premises, and several small restaurants within walking distance.

The staff was very kind to give me the flexibility to move my reservations dates depending on the birth of my granddaughter. Most importantly, I was able to communicate with them easily and they were very empathetic to my situation. Very professional and kind.

Disappointed in my room. Paid a lot of money for an outdated room which was crowded with equally outdated furniture. I am usually a fan of best westerns and I was expecting something a lot better than what I got.

Sometimes I take for granted how important customer service is but staying at the BW Encinas reminded me again. Even though we were staying just one night, we felt like we were given royal treatment. The friendly manager took the time to answer all of our questions, give us information on local restaurants, and offered to make reservations for us....
