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 stayed here one night on our way to San Diego. We are thinking of moving to Carlsbad so wanted to check out the area as well. 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!

The staff is very friendly, rooms were clean and well kept. Breakfast buffet had cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, pastries, yogurt, fruit and waffles. The buffet was clean and well stocked. The location is very close to Legland and the beach. We would definately stay there again.

I had an excellent stay at this hotel for the second time in 2 years because is was clean,well kept and conveniently close to the La Costa Resort where my 3 day concert was going on. I highly recommend this for your stay while visiting Carlsbad or any of the surrounding areas. Marquietta Harden

We stay at this hotel whenever in Carlsbad. Staff are courteous and friendly and room are clean. Not a very large room, but adequate for two. Close to beach, coaster into downtown, attractions. Would recommend. Breakfast is plentiful and large selection.

We have stayed here for several years but haven't been back for a few years. What a welcome surprise. It is still very clean and it has been renovated. The breakfast area is beautiful and very accommodating to all groups. The breakfast was very good. The steel cut oatmeal in the crock pot was our favorite. Nice selection of fruit,... More

We stayed 4 cosecutive nights and had a nice room. The continental breakfast was adequate. The Wi-Fi in this hotel was the worst I have ever encountered. The desk clerk said they should have it upgraded within a month or two. Enjoyed our stay - other than the frustrating Wi-Fi.

Have stayed at other La Quinta's while traveling because of pet. This stay was unplanned as friends were delayed on their inbound flight to return to their home in Oceanside where we were going to stay. I am unsure what the occupancy was for our overnight last Sunday of September 2014. Therefore, the demands on the facility and staff appeared... More
