One in Tucson and this one. The good Good location lobby and rooms recently remodeled Comfortable bed Bad AC didnt work well alot of... More

This location is RIGHT next to the freeway and luckily our room was the furthest away, but if the AC wasn't blowing all night, the sound of the freeway was.... The room was small, the pool was small and crowded at all times. We stayed at 7 different hotels on this trip and this was the worst for the money.... More

Close to Legoland, and the wonderful Carlsbad beaches, overall great experience, you cannot beat the price and location. If you don't have kids and just came for the sun, ask for the 3rd floor, the hotel is primarelly a Legoland stop for many families. Families with little kids tend to get a bit noisy, especially towards the evening and some... More

Excellent service! Good location. Always a fan of waffles. Aesthetically pleasing décor. Reasonable pricing for the value. The only down side is the odor in the rooms given the humidity of the area. I kept the window open 24 hours a day. It was bearable since I've only used it to shower and sleep. Would have preferred a temperature controlled... More

Hotel is in a convenient location for our purpose and appears to be popular with families visiting Legoland and the beach area. The hotel is well maintainted overall but the carpet in our room needed a good cleaning. Beds are comfortable. Price is right.

On our recent family vacation we stayed st the Carlsbad, Ca La Quints. We had 2 rooms for 5 days. We were happy with the hotel and the location. We were just off of I-5, 2 blocks from the ocean, 8 minutes from Lego Land and 20 to 30 minutes from downtown, the Zoo, Sea World and the Harbor.

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at this location and I love it. Close to everything that Carlsbad has to offer. Minutes to the Coaster, the beach, outlet malls, Legoland, I-5. Love the remodeled breakfast room. Staff is super friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was very cramped for 4 people (and we had 5 with a toddler on the floor). The room was not worth the price of $161 a night. It should have been $70. The pool was very small. We weren't given enough towels for our room. The breakfast area was always crowded and the waffle area was messy. It... More

We have been staying at this hotel for a few years now. They have remodeled the dining room which is beautiful. Wonderful breakfast had many choices. Esperanza, the lady in charge of the dining room has been there for years and she works so hard to keep everything stocked and clean. All employees were very professional and eager to make... More

This was my first time staying at a La Quinta Inn. This property appeared to recently renovated, and they are currently updating the area off of the lobby where they offer free breakfast in the morning. Not saying there was any trace of construction, it was still clean and orderly. Just a polite sign talking about the process. I stayed... More
