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.

The room was very cramped for 4 people (and we had 5 with a toddler on the floor). The room was not worth the price of $161 a night. It should have been $70. The pool was very small. We weren't given enough towels for our room. The breakfast area was always crowded and the waffle area was messy. It... More

We have been staying at this hotel for a few years now. They have remodeled the dining room which is beautiful. Wonderful breakfast had many choices. Esperanza, the lady in charge of the dining room has been there for years and she works so hard to keep everything stocked and clean. All employees were very professional and eager to make... More

This was my first time staying at a La Quinta Inn. This property appeared to recently renovated, and they are currently updating the area off of the lobby where they offer free breakfast in the morning. Not saying there was any trace of construction, it was still clean and orderly. Just a polite sign talking about the process. I stayed... More

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Carlsbad, CA to lounge and relax. This hotel was in close proximity to the beaches, restaurants, and shopping. We enjoyed our stay and the hotel cost was reasonable. We had a great time.

My family just returned from a wonderful stay at La Quinta Inn Carlsbad. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel, and it exceeded our expectations. The front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect for us - only a few minutes to the beach and very close to LEGOLAND. The hotel is just... More

Our room was obviously renovated fairly recently, so that was very nice. For a motel, the room was nicer than most motel rooms. We had our dog with us, so that was great that pets are allowed. The breakfast was ok, but it would have been nicer if they had scrambled eggs and breakfast meats. The breakfast was VERY full... More
