I had some business in San Diego so my husband and I took our dog down with us the day before to enjoy a little vacation. I've stayed at hotels in the past which claim to be pet friendly, but there are so many rules it's ridiculous. Here, they gave my little guy a treat at check in, you are... More

Very comfortable and relaxing stay; since we had our dog with us it was nice having the room entrance on exterior of building. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. After making my reservation when rate dropped later in week, I called the property and staff politely adjusted my reservation to reflect the lower rate.

Nice hotel. Pretty clean. We stayed in a two room king suite. Very quiet. Our room had two bathrooms and a sleeper sofa which was a plus for our family. Very close to the beach, some restaurants, and Ralph's grocery store with a Starbucks inside. We'd stay here again.

This is the best deal for your money. It is not fancy on the outside but everything inside including the breakfast room has been redone. Very, very comfortable beds, extremely clean rooms and well stocked fresh breakfast items. Waffles, fresh fruit scrambles eggs, sausage, juices and delicious fresh bagels. Our room was very well kept and the bathroom was very... More

good location close to LEGOLAND, great breakfast and staff, room was somewhat outdated. bathroom needed attention. updated beds and pillows would have helped. I would give it another try if I were in the area, but would ask if any rooms had been updated :)

we stayed in a suite with bunk beds. You walk in and it's a king size bed hotel room but then there's a door and there's a large room with a great bunk bed for the kids. There were two microwaves and two fridges. Don't know why. Anyway rooms were roomy and clean. It's nothing special and yet I almost... More

After spending a full day at Legoland we were looking forward to a good night's rest. The room was clean but my husband noted the toilet had a slow leak. We placed a towel underneath it and planned on reporting the problem the next morning as it was late. The next morning we got up around 6:30am and the toilet... More

I received a room on the 3rd floor and used the elevator to get there. The entrance to the room was through an outside entry door. This appeared to be an older hotel but was in fairly good condition. I liked the location and was near other hotels on Macadamia in Carlsbad, CA. The room was considered medium to small... More

This review is for ADA two queen beds. I booked this room since I was no sure the difference. Pro: Easy to access the freeway, free WIFI, free boring continental breakfast (stop eating after two days). My room near elevator so it is easy to go up and down. Cons: 1) Room is small. 2) No closet but just corner... More
