Visiting Legoland and was amazed by the prices of the nearby motels. I was concerned reading the other reviews of this motel, but decided to give it a try anyway. Not the fanciest place, but was clean and comfortable enough for us.

Really terrible and awful hotel. Staff is rood and unqualified. Stinking bathroom with urine smell. AC is as bad as the hotel... it took 3 hours to align room temperature with the weather outside. Hot enclosed stinky room with broken cupboard glass freaking us out of kids safety. Our family booked 2 rooms of this awful hotel 5 days in... More

I asked for a first floor - received a second floor. Wanted extra washcloth received 2 washcloths no towels. The toilet sounded like a siren when flushed. The person at the desk barely spoke to you because he was on his cell phone or the computer. . Didn't even try the so called breakfast.

Where to begin? The good: Free ample parking in a courtyard setting so I felt my car was pretty safe. Good last minute deal for under $100 (booked minutes before checking in through hotels dot com). Now for the bad part: Ants! Ants! Ants! On/in my bed under the covers (see photo). I kept flicking them off but more kept... More

We're on a family vacation with the kids (Legoland) and booked Rodeway Inn in Carlsbad on Expedia for 5 nights. Big mistake! If our rooms were refundable we would move anywhere else. I'm shocked at the prior reviews. I can only speculate that the owners wrote their own reviews to drum up business? The guy behind the counter this afternoon... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with the family for Legoland trip. I used to stay at the place next door but they were fully booked. Decided to stay here. The room is decent and clean enough. Breakfast has minimal selection. I advise not leave any food in the trash can in your room, made a mistake of doing that, the... More

Location is one mile east of the beach and downtown Carlsbad. Only a 10 minute drive to Legoland. One of the cheapest priced hotels near Legoland, but is also one of the nicer "cheap hotels" that I have stayed in. Our room with two queen beds had recently been remodeled. Fresh paint on the walls, coved molding along the ceiling,... More

The location is good although as it is located right beside the freeway, can be a little noisy when you are at the pool. The overall feel is of neglect - there were 5 outside lights flickering off and on for the four days of our stay. It just felt as if no one cared. We asked for towels and... More

#1- no chain or lock on inside of the door made me nervous our toddler could exit on his own. Pulling the handle unlocked and opened door simultaneously and exited directly into the parking lot. We put a chair in front of the door while we slept. #2- we asked for 2 additional towels (only gave us 2 for our... More

Front desk customer service was fantastic! Hotel is close to many restaurants, gas stations, and liquor stores. Not the newest hotel, but is clean and has the necessities with a little bit more. I would stay here again.
