After reading reviews of hotel being too noisy near freeway and dirty rooms, small pool etc, I wasn't sure what to expect. This place is clean, nice rooms, couldn't hear highway traffic or much noise at all and breakfast is your normal continental that you get at most hotels offering free breakfast! Waffles, bagels, toast, fruit, oatmeal, plenty to satisfy.... More

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of days nearly every summer for the last 10 years. We have a family reunion in the area and this hotel has been the one we the entire party stays. The past few years it had been noticeably run down and shabby. This year the common areas as well as the rooms... More

Hotel was very clean and easy to find. We felt safe and had plenty of parking. Wi-Fi was very slow to the point of being unusable. Breakfast was the same every day with waffles and cereals. Noise from Interstate was very apparent outside but we could not hear in the room. However the soccer teams with unsupervised players running up... More

This location is RIGHT next to the freeway and luckily our room was the furthest away, but if the AC wasn't blowing all night, the sound of the freeway was.... The room was small, the pool was small and crowded at all times. We stayed at 7 different hotels on this trip and this was the worst for the money.... More

Close to Legoland, and the wonderful Carlsbad beaches, overall great experience, you cannot beat the price and location. If you don't have kids and just came for the sun, ask for the 3rd floor, the hotel is primarelly a Legoland stop for many families. Families with little kids tend to get a bit noisy, especially towards the evening and some... More

Excellent service! Good location. Always a fan of waffles. Aesthetically pleasing décor. Reasonable pricing for the value. The only down side is the odor in the rooms given the humidity of the area. I kept the window open 24 hours a day. It was bearable since I've only used it to shower and sleep. Would have preferred a temperature controlled... More

Hotel is in a convenient location for our purpose and appears to be popular with families visiting Legoland and the beach area. The hotel is well maintainted overall but the carpet in our room needed a good cleaning. Beds are comfortable. Price is right.

On our recent family vacation we stayed st the Carlsbad, Ca La Quints. We had 2 rooms for 5 days. We were happy with the hotel and the location. We were just off of I-5, 2 blocks from the ocean, 8 minutes from Lego Land and 20 to 30 minutes from downtown, the Zoo, Sea World and the Harbor.

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at this location and I love it. Close to everything that Carlsbad has to offer. Minutes to the Coaster, the beach, outlet malls, Legoland, I-5. Love the remodeled breakfast room. Staff is super friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
