These folks are so nice

We stumbled on to this motel because it is close to Cottage Hospital. Our daughter was air-lifted to Cottage and ended up as a patient for 21 days. But of course, we did not know how long she would ... more

Thank you C9146XDdanielb for taking the the time to provide your comments. We appreciate hearing from our guests. Please note that the hotel is in process of updating rooms with new carpet and furniture. The Live Oak Cafe, located on site, highlights many of the extraordinary products that the area has to offer, including local produce, seafood, wine and craft beer, all served in an innovative and comfortable atmosphere. For those who do not wish to drive and park downtown, guests can easily walk to the theatre district where an electric shuttle carries passengers along lively State Street down the the wharf and along the glistening waterfront. The electric shuttle is a great way to see and experience downtown. Our location is very convenient for those needing to visit Cottage Hospital, Sansum Medical Clinic or the new Cancer Center. We hope you allow us to welcome you back to the Best Western Plus Encina Inn & Suites. Sincerely, Anthony I.

John Thomas Hot... S, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I greatly apologize that we did not meet your expectations during your stay. A typical day at the Encina Inn & Suites would start with professional and hospitable interactions with all of our staff who strive to ensure that all guests enjoy a comfortable stay. I can understand your disappointment with a limited choice of fresh fruit in the lobby, this was an oversight on our part that has been addressed. Please note the hotel features a lovely pool courtyard area with several tables and chairs where guests may enjoy our beautifully landscaped courtyard and our unique bird aviary. The hotel is located in a charming historic neighborhood convenient to the medical community. Although not directly located in the the waterfront district, the hotel's location offers easy access to all of the areas popular attractions. Once again, we appreciate your time and feedback. Sincerely, Anthony I.
