We stayed here over Thanksgiving with 4 of our kids. The double king suite was a perfect fit for the 6 of us (with the pullout bed). The room was immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast each morning was delicious. We enjoyed the pool and the exercise room each day. My family's favorite part of this... More

The beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. My room was a bit narrow, but very nice. Breakfast place was acceptable nothing fancy. Overall great place. Very friendly knowledgable staff. This hotel is right off the freeway and close to the cute beach town of Oceanside.

My husband and I own a local Carlsbad business and have used the West many times for out of town guests as well as personally when we need to stay close to the office. They are pet friendly which sometimes scares me, however, the rooms are always clean and fresh when we arrive. The staff is friendly and helpful and... More

We took our children to Legoland and opted to stay at West Inn due to its nice rooms, proximity to Legoland and beaches, and free breakfast. We have stayed here many times before and always liked it but the free breakfast has degenerated into an inedible cattle call. If you are lucky to get a table amid the crush of... More

My family just got back from a stay at the West Inn and loved it! They did a great job shuttling us to Legoland and providing a good solid breakfast buffet with bacon and eggs each morning. The room was immaculate and lived up to a really high standard. If you have kids, they have step stools in the bathroom... More

We originally booked the West Inn and Suites because of the great reviews it has on Trip Advisor and because it offers shuttle service to and from Legoland which is about five minutes away. The hotel did not disappoint. We stayed six nights and used the hotel as a base for traveling to various San Diego attractions. The hotel breakfast... More

Spent one night for an event at Carlsbad and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Very clean, updated, quiet, exceptionally comfortable beds, and pillows, and linens. On site restaurant, which we didn't visit. Good complimentary breakfast. Room complete with all the amenities. Beach two blocks, walking distance. For families visiting Legoland, very close. Hotel staff willing to please. I enjoyed... More

Took my mother to see her sister in nearby Oceanside and decided to stay overnight at this hotel. So conveniently located, right next to the freeway exit and although it is also by railroad tracks you hear almost nothing. Nice pool and jacuzzi and delicious full free breakfast - you can't beat it for the price! If you have the... More

Not on the beach but close enough. Not in the town but close enough. Near the train tracks but quiet and peaceful. This is a rare family friendly, pet friendly and totally everyone friendly place to stay. My husband, I and small dog loved it. The room was set up with dog bed, dog bowls and dog treats. There is...
