The managers reception cannot hold a candle to Hilton Homewood Suites, often very poor food choices, but free beer and wine-well who can complain about that. The management is VERY slow to respond to unruly, loud, screaming,obnoxious... More

The hotel room is extremely nice, with modern furnishings, and a full kitchen. The hotel courtyard has a pool, hot tub, a basketball court, a couple large grills, and a large tv with seating area. Several nights a week there's a hospitality hour, where they serve a simple meal with beer (Stone pale ale!) and wine. And they put out... More

Our family joined friends in the North San Diego County area for Halloween and we were looking for a place that wouldn't be too wild for relaxing after the festivities. We found it at this Residence Inn. Yes, we could have stayed near the beach and not in a business park area, but it was quiet and a great value.... More

BCKTravelers, Thank you so much for the glowing review. It is great that you found the location ideal for the family after a fun night out. We are close...but not too close to the noise and traffic of the beach and downtown. Our spacious two bedroom suites are really awesome for families, especially with that second bathroom.

From the greeting to check out my experience at the Residence Inn Carlsbad was great. This hotel is in a quiet area but within close driving distance of the coast and premium outlets.

Great place and I could live here except our room 124 was nice to the mechanical room and was noisy all night. I gave service a four because the poolside towels were overflowing with used towels the whole time we were here and they failed to bring us new ones as promised leaving us stranded with wet grandkids.
