This place is literally down the road from legoland. The rooms are amazing. The two restaurants on site are amazing. The staff is amazing. The breakfast is very good and convenient. The little store in the lobby had some last minute items we needed. The only complaint is that the mini fridge was a little noisy. There is no reason... More

last time we were at Carlsbad we stayed in legoland hotel. This time we decided to try another hotel. I am so happy we decided to try this hotel super neat and good. Even my 4 year old liked this hotel better than legoland hotel. It had a nice breakfast area as well. If you are going to carlsbad try... More

This is a much overdue review of this exceptional small hotel. This hotel was even better than I expected after reading the reviews (which are so well written and accurate for this property). The West Inn has a very pleasant atmosphere created that you just can't see in their website photographs. Everything is meticulously clean and well-planned, you just pick... More

From the minute we arrived to the time we checked out everyone in the hotel was incredibly friendly and service was truly excellent. I was also struck by how impeccably clean the hotel was everywhere. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable to sleep in. Everything looked nearly new or in excellent condition. One example of... More

this hotel truly lived up to the reviews from TripAdvisor. they go above and beyond to take care of their guests. From the moment we checked in, Elizabeth was great! She was very patient and just nice! Amanda was great too as our driver and front desk. They do it all! Pros: double king was worth the price. It's like... More

My family was completely satisfied. Our purpose was to go to Legoland and see family that live in San Diego. I chose the West Inn & Suites based on the reviews of families that have taken the time to write a review. Now I can see why. The staff, accomodations, grounds, and location for our visit was spot on. Could... More

If you're planing to visit the San Diego/Carlsbad area (especially with children) this is the place to stay. The customer service here is by far the best I have ever had and this includes stays I've had at some of the world's most prestigious and renowned hotels. The front desk staff literally treat each guest as if you were the... More

This hotel has one of the highest rankings in Carlsbad on TripAdvisor and it's easy to see why. This has to be just about the friendliest little hotels we've stayed in anywhere. We arrived at 9:30am not expecting to be able to check in, but sure enough, a room was ready on arrival. We had a double king suite, meaning... More

Beautiful hotel close to the beach and everything else San Diego has to offer. Clean and comfortable. Awesome staff. Really outstanding and at a great price. Wish there were more stars to give. Thank you Kim, Carl for a truly great trip! We will be back.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights recently and am still amazed at the service we receive here every time we visit. I travel quite often and I still have yet to have stayed at a property with better staff. They were in process of upgrading the landscaping and exterior of the facility and because of the noise...
