We had been in Anaheim, to visit Disney, and had a day at Legoland planned. The hotel we originally checked into was... Well, let's just say, the only thing good about it was that it was close to Disney. I called around to find a hotel closer to Legoland for the last 2 nights of our trip (at 4 pm... More

We've been staying at the Marriott Residence Inn Carlsbad every year for about 20 years. Every year our stay gets better and better. The comfortable beds, the brand new room renovations and the free breakfast along with weekday happy hour, makes this hotel our number one choice. I would recommend this property to anyone who loves comfort and unmatched service.

Shelley N, Thank you for staying with us and writing such a glowing review! It is great that you found our two bedroom spacious for all 3 generations! I agree about the sofa beds being primarily for kids. While we buy a higher end version, they are limited by having to fold into a compact space. It is great to... More

My family stayed here during our trip to Legoland, free breakfast and light dinner was a great help and the free shuttle to to the park was great.

Very nice hotel, free breakfast is amazing with many beautiful sitting areas inside and out! 1 bedroom suite is kind of small, but has everything you need. Free shuttle to Legoland BUT it only leaves and comes back a certain times, kind of a bummer if you have never been and have no idea what time you will be back.... More
