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

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Carlsbad, CA to lounge and relax. This hotel was in close proximity to the beaches, restaurants, and shopping. We enjoyed our stay and the hotel cost was reasonable. We had a great time.

My family just returned from a wonderful stay at La Quinta Inn Carlsbad. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel, and it exceeded our expectations. The front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect for us - only a few minutes to the beach and very close to LEGOLAND. The hotel is just... More

Our room was obviously renovated fairly recently, so that was very nice. For a motel, the room was nicer than most motel rooms. We had our dog with us, so that was great that pets are allowed. The breakfast was ok, but it would have been nicer if they had scrambled eggs and breakfast meats. The breakfast was VERY full... More

We have stayed at Carlsbad LaQuinta I believe 7 or 8 times in the last year. Very clean, super friendly staff, serves breakfast, pet friendly and close enough to the beach to smell the ocean air. We love to walk and hike as a family. There are several different sea side hiking trails within minutes of the hotel. Most of... More

La Quintas are good because they are dog friendly. However, this property is just old and in need of a total facelift. For example, the toilets are so low to the floor that they are very difficult to get up and down. The place is drab and needs a different color scheme. La Quintas seem to be a hit or... More

We have stayed at this hotel before because it was economical and dog friendly. Our most recent stay was disappointing. 1. We had asked for a first - floor room when reserving. We got a second - floor suite, and when we said we were unhappy, the desk clerk got a little snippy. The suite was spacious; it was nice... More
