A clean, quite spot. Nothing exceptional, but certainly delivered on my expectations. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Since there was only one person working the desk when I checked-in, it took about 15-20 minutes because there were 2 other guests who had concierge questions.

I have always been a big fan of Residence Inn's and this property was no different. It's located in a business park setting. Kind of off the beaten path and away from a lot of busy hotel sites. It is closely located to Legoland and the outlets. The hotel was spotless. We stayed in a 2 room suite. The was... More

The staff was very accommodating, very friendly, and the complimentary hot breakfast is definitely a plus! Michael at the front desk was very helpful and went out of his way to help us when my husband thought he lost his wedding ring.

It was an excellent stay with very courteous hotel employees. Loved my time away from home. It felt like home. Parker was our favorite guy. Breakfast was excellent. The cleanliness was great. The pool was great too. Recommend for all to stay here.

MARCUS- Front Desk Clerk was exceptional! 5 hr drive and we arrived around 1am. He is an excellent ambassador to the Marriot brand! Front desk staff were all very pleasant and helpful! There were plenty of young children running around and the staff did a great job keeping everyone happy!

Having a kitchen for cooking for kids is great, good pool. Good breakfast in the morning. Easy drive to Legoland. A little off the normal path and not surrounded by a lot but seems to be growing. Staff gave us ideas to go to produce stands and we really enjoyed the fresh fruit.

Overall, a pretty nice stay. Free breakfast was good, property was nice. Convenient location from Legoland; nestled in the corporate business area of Carlsbad so you do need a car to access restaurants and other places. On the other hand, I had two gripes.
