As a Gold Elite Marriott Rewards member, I stay at a lot of different Marriott hotels and this is one of the nicest I've seen. The manager, Rick, went above and beyond to help us out when my wife was stranded at the GIA campus by driving the shuttle himself and later in the week asked if she had passed... More

Dear Spencer702, I am really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and found your new home away from home for Legoland visits. Our proximity to the park and great staff make it a no brainer in my humble opinion, even if I am a bit biased. It's nice to hear you were able to enjoy the amenities at the... More

Nice place and cool people in the front desk. Always helpful and very customer friendly. I have chronic back issues and the hotel beds are too soft causing it to worsen. Alex immediately understood my situation and shopped/brought some stuff and fitted it to the existing mattress to make it hard but comfortable for my back. Decent breakfast options, not... More

Dear kannan k, Thank you for recognizing our cool staff! I completely agree that we have great fun, and caring staff. Mattress firmness preference is one of those things that can vary greatly from person to person. We strive each and every day to make our guests comfortable. I'm glad Alex was able to make arrangements to help you get... More

I have staying in this area for business trips before and had the chance to stay this time at the Residence Inn. The hotel is near a great gym (24 Hour Fitness) and close to a lot of shopping. It may not be the first choice for most but I liked that it was a little way away from the... More

Dear Boston Rov, Glad to hear you were able to come out to Carlsbad for spring break and enjoy the wonderful Southern California weather.

My wife and I stayed here during the weekend of my Oceanside 70.3 triathlon, and found it to be ideal. The people at the front desk are standouts: friendly, helpful, patient. They got us oriented to the area, helped us choose restaurants, and provided extra hangars for the closet. The free breakfast is exceptional, with lots of choices, plenty of... More

We've stayed here 2 times now, and have been very happy both times. The studio with king is where we stayed. Last visit, we were given the wrong room, and the hotel was fully booked. Nick was able to get our room changed, and moved in a few minutes. This hotel is about a 5 minute drive to the outlets,... More
