I recently took my 8 year old grandson to Legoland for a 2 day visit. This hotel was less than 10 minutes away on the freeway. Friendly staff, large room, close to kid friendly food (subway, jack in the box) and the breakfast options were very good. I'd definitely stay there again. The only downfall was the noise from the...

What a hidden gem! Stayed just one night in preparation for cruise departure. Wish it could have been longer! Clean property. Very convenient to I-5. Within walking distance of grocery, drug store, banking, and a variety of restaurants. Room was very clean. Bed was super comfy! Breakfast was adequate - about what you expect for hotel free breakfast offerings. Guest... More

I find it clean and no frills. It appears to be about the same as the other hotels in the Carlsbad area near my son's home. We use it consistently. Breakfast is continental style. It is annoying being required to put in 200 characters in a review.

Stayed here for a few days with the family during our visit to Legoland. It served the purpose well. But other than that nothing to commend them for. Pros: Vicinity to Legoland - about 15 min with no need to get on freeways. Convenience - Walking distance to Ralphs Groceries and Rite-Aid pharmacy. Rooms - Clean, and good sized for... More

This hotel is located right by the interstate. You can hear the traffic in your room over the television. The breakfast area was busy when we stayed. It was a mess with waffle mix everywhere. The AC unit in our room was falling apart. They didn't have a crib that we requested. The worker hunted us down in the parking... More

We were there for a week, on business. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was kept very clean. The beds were comfortable, the microwave, coffee pot and fridge worked well, although no freezer in fridge. Breakfast was tasty, mostly carbs with Yoplait yogurt and fresh apples, oranges and bananas. They had an elevator to all floors. Lots... More

Visiting family in Carlsbad, needed a place to sleep that was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Was not interested in amenities since would be gone all day. This inn was an excellent choice for this purpose. The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was very clean. Plenty of hot water. Towels were pretty thick and were replaced daily. Got... More

I have enjoyed staying at this hotel during multiple visits every year, for several days at a time. The service I have received has always been great; cleanliness was excellent every time. Comfortable beds, pleasant employees, great updated rooms. I WILL NOT RETURN due to the lack of hot water in the shower! This happened at 7 a.m. on a... More

We got a reasonable rate and had previous good experiences with La Quinta. We also travelled with two dogs and I love hotels that do not charge extra pet fees! We got room... More

Nothing special, continental breakfast, OK rates! We were in a separate building from the lobby with WI Fi access and a wakeup call that was about 10 minutes late. This was convenient for easy access to the Coaster Station where the shuttle bus stopped for the Carlsbad Street Faire!
