We were here on a June 21. The staff were friendly and the location is only a half mile from the beach and an easy walk. Parking is good and has a breakfast. Close to I 5 which makes it noisy but in rooms don't notice. Room was ok but small for 5 and dated. Bathroom wasn't really clean. Grout... More

2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I`ve stayed here once a year for several years. I like the location, the staff is really nice and courteous. But, this facility just hasn`t delivered in terms of cleanliness for the rooms I`ve gotten in the past two visits. This was a surprise to me this year, because I know the place has been renovated. The new dining area... More

This was our first hotel stop from our flight from Australia. We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 9. Great place to stay close to Legoland and the Carlsbad Premium Outlets, room was clean and tidy and a great free breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay again.

I've stayed at this hotel probably 8 times and this is first time I was disappointed because my room was not ready on arrival and had to wait upwards of 3 hours. This was probably just a coincidence since they were doing required maintenance but traveling on 2 hours sleep made me a little grumpy. Overall the hotel is a... More

This property borders the freeway. The freeway entrances are around the corner and very convenient. It is located in a safe and clean community. Depending on your room you may hear the traffic. The breakfast is great and is close to shopping and restaurants. Carlsbad Outlet is minutes away. Good choice for Legoland.

I wasn't expected much since the hotel is closed to Lego land, so most rooms must have been through countless kids' destructive powers. However, the room was clean and everything was working. It is located close to the highway, and without much insulation like sound wall, it get noisy at night. If you are a light sleeper, this might be... More

We stayed here a year ago and was impressed with the Motel, location, staff, and morning breakfast. I reported that the wi-fi Internet connection in our room was very substandard. The La Quinta has recently upgraded their wi-fi and we now have a very good connection from in room. Great place to stay!

We stayed because it was pet friendly, reasonably priced, about $110, breakfast included and had a pool. We ended up sleeping in, due to the comfy beds, missing breakfast and pool time! My one and only complaint is that there were no ``Wet Paint`` signs up and I got brown paint on my black LuLu Lemons. Other then that, it... More

The hotel for it's price was okay with upgraded rooms, and free continental breakfast with hot waffles. It is conveniently located near the freeway, beach, legoland, restaurants, and attractions in Carlsbad. However, the cleanliness was not up to par compared to other La Quinta Inns I stayed in the past. The room initially was "cleaned" for our arrival however when... More
