Thank you for staying with us and I appreciate the time you spent on the survey. We do have heavily insulated windows on the freeway side but it sounds like you were able to hear it on the other side of the hotel. I apologize for that. All the best, CrisV More

The Ramada is located in south Carlsbad near the outlets, legoland, and many chain restaurants. It was very quiet but I could hear the freeway from my room. The room was a good size and clean. Staff was pleasant and I enjoyed the breakfast. About a 10 minute drive you will be in north Carlsbad which has the local shops... More

Hey there, I thought this place would be decent, it has a 3+ star rating and it doesn't deserve it in anyway. Booked through Lego Land website. Very Dirty, out of date, and EXTREMELY noisy. It's right by I-5 and you know it! There is no insulating glass or anything to help, just single pane windows to allow in all... More

It is easy to find, great location for the beach and Legoland. Rooms are very basic. I have a family of 5. The bathroom was very small. A curved shower rod was installed to provide more room in the shower, but it did not allow the door open all the way. Having the sink/vanity outside of the bathroom would of... More

We stayed here because we were going to LegoLand. Although they do not provide a shuttle (which would have been great), we were really close to the park and to the beach. We were next to the freeway but did not hear any of the freeway noise. Great amenities were an awesome showerhead in the bathroom, the refrigerator was extremely... More

We had a wonderful stay here for our trip to Legoland. I only wish we could have stayed longer! It was a perfect place for families, and there were lots of other children to play with at the lovely pool. Very handy to Legoland - only a $10 taxi ride away. The rooms were perfect for our family of 5... More

With 6 people in our family, we constantly have trouble finding a hotel that will sleep all of us together. Ramada Carlsbad's rooms were perfect - two double beds and a sleeper sofa kept everyone happy (and off of the floor!) I am a self proclaimed "germa-a-phobe"... with good reason. My youngest son has had a liver transplant and will... More
