We have stayed at many hotels in San diego area and this is definitely one of the better ones. We had a two bed room suite and the rooms were extremely well kept and really neat. The hotel is just 5 minutes drive from Legoland and I highly recommend this place.

I booked the hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews, and it was as described (good rate, clean, new furnishings, etc) except for one thing: if you are a light sleeper, the traffic noise from the 405 is way too loud. The hotel is about a block away from the 405, with nothing much inbetween. You watch the traffic go by. We... More

We booked a room for our weekend visit to nearby Legoland. For the price, this hotel can't be beat. Love having a fridge and microwave in the room. Clean and nice furnishings. Every time we came in the lot one of the owners could be seen sweeping the parking area and keeping things neat and tidy. No coffee maker in... More

The motel has recently been updated (3 hrs ago ) and the size of the room was exceptionally large. Our room was very clean and had a TV, frig, a coffee maker and a micro wave. Continental breakfast and use of the computer in the lobby were included without additional charge. Wireless Internet may only be accessed inside the lobby,... More

My Husband and I stayed at the Econo Lodge Inn Near Legoland with a group of 5 middle school children we were chaperoning for a school trip to Legoland. There was a lot of noise from the freeway, but the children(and adults) were tired by bedtime and slept like it wasnt there. The rooms and their furnishings are very basic,... More

Wow! Sparkly clean everywhere! Where else do you see the owner sweeping the parking area?! They have huge rooms with big fridges and a microwave. Tons of closet space! Great location if you want to go into downtown Carlsbad. If so, you can't miss Pizza Port and El Norte! The Econo Lodge puts on a really good complimentary breakfast with... More

We had a lovely stay at Econo Lodge at the end of April, 2012. We requested and were given a room at the back of the property. There was freeway noise outside, but as others have mentioned, it was not a problem in the room. Clean, basic furnishings filled the bill for us, topped off with a great breakfast. It... More

Husband and I returned from a 2 nights stay. Cute little lodge, seemed safe, clean and very spacious room! Flat screen TV, sofa, bathtub - all seems quite new. Very good value for money overall. Next to the highway but didn't hear much noise. Would stay here again if we came back for a visit. It was close to the... More

Nice hotel with friendly manager. The room are large, and they look clean, although basic. The breakfast is great with just-baked waffles, fruits, toasts, etc. It is not a four-star, but you will get value for your money.
