We travel a TON and this time we were here for 5 days with our two children. The staff was amazing, so friendly, room and hotel was beautiful pictures do not do it justice. The breakfast was great and the milk and cookies were such an awesome added touch. What did it for us was the convenience hands down. It... More

Going off tripadvisor recommendations, we chose West Inn & Suites for our stay while we visited Legoland. We were greeted by a friendly staff and a very well kept hotel! Not old do they have excellent and comfortable rooms, they have milk and cookies in the evening as well as many other niceties. The complimentary hot buffet breakfast was great... More

We stayed at the West Inn April 2-6. We had a great time. The hotel was fabulous. All employees were friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was the best I have had at a hotel. We used the pool every afternoon and it was nicely heated even though the evenings were a bit cool. Very nice pool and hot tub.... More

This place is a hidden gem. Staff are fantastic. They don't leave out a detail. Clean. Spacious. Priced well. Great pool. Cookies and milk at night top off the stay. We will be back. The ONLY downside is it's proximity to an electric plant but that is quickly forgotten with the experience. Very close to Legoland.

The rooms are nice, staff very helpful, overall a great hotel. The breakfast was wonderful, and cookies and milk at bedtime were an extra special treat. The shuttle to the beach with towels, chairs and toys for the kids was exactly what we needed for our spring break.

My 3 yo son and I stayed here for 2 nights in March as we were visiting Legoland. Price was better than the Legoland hotel and it is nice to be away from the excitement of the park. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a microwave, refrigerator and sink to fill your coffee maker. They allow you to check... More

My husband, teenage son and I stayed here for 4 nights in March and it was wonderful! Our room had two king sized beds and it was so quiet, that we felt like we were the only ones at the hotel. The friendly front desk went above and beyond to meet our needs -- arranged free shuttle service to the... More

I was looking for something comfortable for a quick and relaxing stay while visiting family in Oceanside. This place was amazing and so comfortable. We had a really great nights rest. The breakfast and milk and cookies were a bonus. It is really close to everything, the beach, the outlets and the flower fields. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at the West Inn and Suites for a week and it's first rate. The rooms were comfortable and quiet, breakfast was fine, and the location is very convenient for attractions, the freeway and for access. It is a short drive to the beach or the centre of Carlsbad, but not a long drive. It's the service and value... More

Hello fellow travelers, my family and I (3 little girls) stayed at the West Inn over winter break and it was fantastic! We were visiting friends in the San Diego area and wanted a really nice hotel that wasn't super expensive since we would only be there for a few nights. This hotel looked really nice so we gave it...
