We recently stayed at the West. We stayed 3 nights. My husband & I both agree it's worth the price. The staff is super friendly and the room was spacious & clean. They shuttled us Legoland, the beach and the local dining area. The hotel had all the beach stuff you would ever need & they also stock the pool... More

We stayed here in June 2014. The hotel property, rooms and amenities were excellent. There is a free 5 minute shuttle service from the hotel to Legoland. You can get on a list to reserve your spot to the park and either pick your return time or call 30-45 minutes before your desired pick up time from the park. The... More

This hotel was awesome! We read a lot of good reviews on it and it was very tough to decide on where to stay for our Legoland family trip. It came down to a few choices and we decided to book here and we were very happy that we did. The hotel is even prettier in person, its very clean... More

We have stayed in a lot of hotels, but we can seriously say we have never stayed in a more accomodating one than the West Inn. They were willing to assist and provide us with anything. The hotel was clean, the breakfasts were good, and the service was amazing. I would suggest this hotel to anyone.

This hotel was suggested by a friend who grew up in California and stayed there on his last visit home to see family. I cannot imagine I would have found it otherwise. To begin, this hotel is well located. The I-5 is right around the corner to access to San Diego is close by. If you avoid rush hour, you... More

We chose West Inn because it is one of the few places that can accommodate a family of six. We stayed four nights, Sunday thru Thursday. Our room looked new, or nearly so, and had two King size beds and one full-size pull-out couch. There was plenty of room for us all, with a full bathroom (we chose the bathtub... More

This hotel has it all. From incredible customer service, immaculate appearance, to great value. If you are at LegoLand, golfing, or just visiting, make sure to stay here. We utilized a Stay and Play golf package. Shortly after making a reservation, a wonderful young lady from the hotel actually sent me an email asking me if she could make us... More

Cons - Hyatt House across the street was less expensive and more like a suite having a full kitchen. Our "suite" did not have a door separating the bedroom and living area. It's a hallway that separates the two. That hallway also has the bathroom off it. Pros - extremely nice decor. Everything is either new or upgraded. More upscale... More

This place is great for people who have families that are visiting the San Diego area to go to Lego Land, Sea world, etc. The hotel is very well kept and clean, the staff is very friendly. The breakfast was very good. We would stay here again overnight if just passing through, we would stay longer than that though.Not the... More
