We stayed here with our two children- they both have allergies and the staff was very accommodating as per our request for a pet free room. This property is beautiful and great location too! The housekeeping staff and the girls at the front desk are so friendly. The property is kept immaculate and the customer service is top notch !... More

I love, love, love this hotel! The customer service is top notch and the services they provide is amazing! My family and I stayed in Carlsbad for a week - we did the beach and Legoland thing. West Inn is minutes away from beaches and less than 10 minutes away from Legoland. They offer free shuttle service (within a 5... More

We recently stayed at the West Inn and Suites in Carlsbad for a family wedding. The hotel is clean, updated and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable and we would highly recommend this hotel if you want to stay in Carlsbad near the beach. The beach is about a 5 minute drive from the... More

We're repeat customers at the West Inn & Suites. It's a charming boutique hotel with a lot of amenities that keep bringing us back: the fresh smell throughout the hotel, the freshly baked cookies in the evening, the breakfast selection, and the spacious rooms.

Stayed three nights to visit Legoland. I think we had one of the worst rooms (119) as it was among the smallest and overlooked the rear parking area. However, this wasn't a problem because everything else about the hotel was excellent. If it weren't for their dog-friendly policy, we wouldn't have stayed there. The breakfast was nice. The sheets and... More

We travel a lot and everyone in the family loved this customer-service oriented hotel. The rooms are large, well appointed and quiet. The staff goes above and beyond. They offer free shuttle service to Legoland and other locations in the area. The pool was large and well maintained. They also have a library of movies they lend out and milk... More

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.
