Booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and I didn't have time to do a not of research. Based on reviews I was disappointed. The hotel is right next to the freeway which is very noisy. On the other side is a water treatment facility. Not an idea location in my opinion. While they are a short walk to... More

The wife and I just wanted to get away overnight; see something new. We booked this hotel same day, and headed out. We originally thought this place would be overrun by children and noisy due to its proximity to Legoland (same exit). What we found was quite the opposite, it was super nice, super quiet. There were quite a few... More

My sister, mother and I stayed here while in town for a Chicago Bears game. This is such a nice boutique hotel with a buffet breakfast included. It is nice not to have to scramble for breakfast in the morning before heading out. The front desk personnel are great in that they printed tickets to the San Diego Zoo at... More

My family and I just returned from 2 nights at the West Inn and Suites Carlsbad and it was the best hotel experience we have had in years! Check in was a breeze and everyone we encountered was friendly, welcoming and greeted us with a smile. We had a 2 King room on the first floor. The beds were comfortable... More

We were greeted upon arrival by a nice staff who told us about everything this hotel has to offer. Great location right off I-5 but very quiet. Close to the beach and old town Carlsbad and also within 30 minutes of Downtown San Diego. Good full breakfast (no charge) but go early as the families show up after 8:30. Underground... More

This hotel seems like it must have been an Embassy Suites which was bought out and the new owners changed the name. It's nice. Rooms are suites (but no door separating bedroom). Decent pool. OK breakfast. Nice lobby area. Friendly available staff. Location is convenient but not scenic. Hotel is perched right off a highway. But it's a short drive... More

I had my business meeting nearby. The hotel was located in a calm place except the time when train passes by. Anyway, people from front desk are so kind and friendly. They do whatever i request for. Additionally, they offer free shuttle service wherever you want to go.

Due to overwhelming popular reviews, I decided to go with staying at the West Inn & Suites. This place did not disappoint, from the minute we checked in, the point when we checked out. From complimentary dvd's, milk & cookies before bedtime for the kids, to the king size bed for us and the comfy sofa bed for the brats,... More
