This property was very clean, family friendly and the free breakfast was good. The staff was very helpful. We had an ADA room and it was very clean, but the king bed bowed and needed replacing. The roll-in shower was ridiculously narrow (wall mounted seat extended out of the shower over bathroom floor by 8")and easily flooded the bathroom floor.... More

The check in and breakfast areas were remodeled recently and they were very nice. Breakfast was the standard LQ fare, fine, but... More

This hotel is located very close to the beach and freeway. It is about a ten minute walk to the beach so we would usually drive still. Freeway access is convenient but some of our friends close to the freeway said it was noticeable at night. We were closer to the pool side of the hotel and didn't notice it... More

Dog friendly motel close to legoland and 20 minutes away from San Diego. Good value for family oriented vacations. Grounds and hotel were clean and staff was attentive and helpful. Morning breakfast was adequate and well stocked.

Had problems with airlines and they were very helpful. Met 4 different employee and all very nice. Nice location, right off freeway and close to beaches. Hot tub was not working but sign was on it to let us know that jets were not working. Breakfast had just about everything you would like, waffles outstanding!

We love to go here when in carlsbad. The rooms are clean and we can take our beagle here. They have a small breakfast area with a few choices. The pool is small but clean. And there is a small spa. There are restraunts down the way and grocery stores.

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...
