This hotel is very close to LEGOLAND, 1.5 miles to the Premium Outlet Mall and 3 miles to the beach, so it worked perfectly for us. Relative to other hotels in Carlsbad area, this place is affordable too.

The hotel's place is affordable, and accessible close to the shopping mall, amusement area, and venue for the marathon race, and shuttle to bring us to the start line. the room is clean and very home coming to stay.

A quick drive to center of Carlsbad for a nice day of strolling through the shops and restaurants. Hotel room is very clean, comfortable and quiet. Parking lot was full but plenty of spots and is well lite up. No free coffee.

Located away from the beach amid business parks and close to the small Carlsbad airport, this hotel fit the bill for my business trip to the area. The room was clean, the staff friendly and the Wifi strong. Breakfast was not included, but was reasonable and quick. While I didn't have time to use it, the size of the pool... More

entirely consistent with the Courtyard brand this one. you get the Marriott room without all the fuss. Mine was clean, comfortable. The breakfast was a little average but in all worth the price. I used the small gym while there and everything worked.

This hotel has been updated and looks fairly good, It's in a quiet location near shopping and restaurants. The hotel provided good cookies in the evening, the workout room was well equipped, and the Bistro provided good service. But unfortunately, our experience was not all good.

This hotel is in a very quiet area as the surrounding area is an office location so noise levels are quite low. It is within minutes of all that Carlsbad has to offer which makes it very convenient at a reasonable price. Breakfast is available on the premises at a reasonable price so there isn't a need to get dressed... More

Booked this hotel for a one-night stay on my way to a sports event. Staff was great, room was good, location was a bit off the beaten path but close to the freeway, stores and restaurants. Thumbs up for the overall experience!
