This hotel was in the perfect location! We walked a few blocks to the beach! It was gorgeous! The room was clean and updated! Parking was no issue and the breakfast was nice for a quick bite before heading to the airport! It was very affordable!

Good place to stay, the rooms were very clean, the staff was extremely helpful & friendly, a big variety of places for meals very close in addition to shopping! The city of Carlsbad is in a great location, close to the freeway, easy access to San Diego and avariety of point of interest

The motel is nice enough, the price is OK too but the noise from the freeway, my God! It goes all night. Great if ones hearing is impaired. Restaurants are nearby but on weekends the are crazy busy. Breakfast is good, some shopping nearby. The beach is fairly close also but BUSY!
