The staff was quite rude from the start, when we asked if they had a rollaway they said no, and then on further encouragement said that they would look but we should be thankful that we got a room at all since there was a big conference in town. Easy to notice the big brown cobweb in the corner of... More

I was bitten by fleas within 3 minutes of entering the room. The air conditioner leaked water so bad we had to turn it off and suffer in the heat - 11 PM at night. The shower walls had hair from the last guest. Breakfast was instant oatmeal, oranges, apples, and granola bars.

Booked one night to travel to SD for a family birthday party. Did not realize that a major conference was occurring that weekend. All the normal hotels that we stay at were already booked. This is motel is without a doubt the most mismanaged place I have ever stayed. It was dirty--and not just a few issues but the entire... More

Extended Stay Carlsbad finds it very difficult to honor prearranged agreements in regards to my mom's card being on file to pay for my room when when I visit her. She lives in an assisted living facility across the street and can't make it across the street due to her blindness and I don't drive. My mom, my self and... More

After checking in we found our bed to have dirty sheets! Since it was late at night, front desk lady could not leave desk (only one there), so we had to change the bed sheets ourselves. We should have just left then when we saw the mattress protector had different stains than the sheets! Bathroom sink leaked water underneath that... More

We were there for the Memorial Day weekend to go to Legoland, The place is decent, even though it's right next to the freeway, we didn't hear any traffic at all during the time we were there. This is a budge hotel, so we didn't expect otherwise. The service is very minimal but again, it's a budget hotel so we... More

My Daughter, Wife, and I stayed at the Extended Stay property in Carlsbad Ca in June 2014 based on its proximity to Legoland. The property is located a short drive from Legoland and is also close to other attractions such as the California Surf Museum, Oceanside Pier, and antique row in downtown Carlsbad. It is an attractive building and the... More

The hotel butts right up against the Interstate 5, the room was very noisy due to the freeway. The bed, for being a hotel that one would spend longer periods of time in, was not at all comfortable. When I checked in there was not one person in the lobby or at the front desk. At another time I needed... More

We spent a week at this hotel while we were looking for a home. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The room was fine, the bed was comfortable and the cooking amenities were ample. If we had any needs, they were quickly met by the staff. The early morning coffee and snack items were fine. The hotel is located... More

Sorry, but part of the value is grab and go breakfast. If you say you're open until 9:30am, I better find everything ready to go AT 9:29, 9:27, 9:26, etc. Don't get lazy and tear down at 09:25. That's at least $10 of lost value. And this is systemic. This happened in Phoenix a few times over a 2 month... More
