The hotel is good location if you are actually going to Carlsbad not good location for San Diego. The room was nice and clean, wish the one bedroom suite was bigger. Normal breakfast, nice pool and jacuzzi but a lot of kids playing in the pool in the morning. Will stay again.

We've stayed at many Residence Inns and this one lived up to expectations for the most part. Room was a little on the small side and since it was facing the pool (as many rooms do), it was quite noisy in the afternoon with frolicking swimmers. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Since we were there over a holiday... More

This was our first time staying in this Marriott (we stayed in one by Disneyland last year). It was amazing! We checked in later in the evening and the staff was friendly and very welcoming. I booked through their general call center and when I booked I was advised that the hotel provided a shuttle service to and from Legoland.... More

After an initial glitch in which our 2bdrm/2bath suite reservation was lost, we booked two studio suites. The hotel was kind enough to give us a price adjustment and located us on the same floor, across from each other. -- Note: this glitch was discovered two weeks prior to arrival, so the check in process was smooth. Always call to... More

First time staying in this hotel. We stayed in Homewood suites last time, so we decided to give this place a visit. Check was easy and staff was clear and well spoken.

I spent several months on and off at this great Marriot while working in San Marcos. Was the perfect location for getting to work and spending time at the beach. Was great to have the space I needed to bring my daughter and my puppy along for the trips. Decent breakfast and evening snacks.

Our family traditionally spends about 9-10 days every winter in Southern California, and we have used Carlsbad as our home base for the past 4 years. Our go-to place in Carlsbad was the Homewood Suites, but some wonderful experiences at other Residence Inns and a lack of availability for what we wanted at the Homewood prompted us to try this...

Its kitchen was adequately fitted out with service for four, pots & pans, full fridge, dishwasher and two-burner range. No oven but it wasn't a problem for us as we generally ate a late lunch...
