The hotel was a great location, right off of the freeway. We paid for a suite which had 2 rooms, separated by door. One room was the king size bed with its own bathroom and the other room had a kids bunk bed with its own bathroom as well. Overall stay was good. Even though it was right off the... More

good if you have chidrens, Noisy hotel as it is a rather family hotel. The suite with sofa requested at booking was not respected . The king size bed is too small and it's not what we found in other hotels Quinta Inn .

The bed was hard and not very comfortable, but my kids loved having the free on demand on the TV. The breakfast was typical, but the serving room was very small and crowded. The staff was friendly though, and the room was very clean. We had no problems with noise from the freeway either. Overall a good stay for a... More

Had guests from El Paso TX visiting over Christmas holidays. They never see the ocean so we took them to our favorite town, Carlsbad. It was rather cold and wet but didn't matter we had a wonderful suite to stay in. Across the freeway are the Carlsbad Outlets so we did plenty of after Christmas shopping. Also have great restaurants.... More

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

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.
