My family and I stayed in this Residence Inn from July 30-Aug 5, 2015. We were in town for a visit to Legoland, but also just to see the sights of the San Diego/north county coast. We had booked a 1 bedroom suite. The room was great, very clean and neat. I'll admit, nothing really stood out about the room,... More

Found the room to be of very high quality, home from home. Good quality fittings, comfy bed. Made the business trip a breeze. Air conditioning worked well and was not too noisy. Food options not available every night.

Stayed at Marriott in 3 continent and over hundred cities, this is by far the worst. The only reason the hotel management is not remodeling/upgrading is the "location". they are close to LegoLand (less than 10min)offer free breakfast and full kitchen, therefore its attractive for families. The rooms are dirty (found long white hair in the fridge and under the... More

We've been going to Carlsbad at least once a year to visit LEGOLAND followed by an overnight stay. We typically stay at the Hilton garden Inn but this time we decided to try the Residence Inn for change. Its located in a business park just east of LEGOLAND. The hotel is new with a friendly staff.

Location is great and staff is awesome. I would definitely stay here again for a family trip. Family enjoyed every minute of it. We are breakfast every morning at the hotel and it was good. Saved us quite a bit of money. I will stay here for business trips in the future too.

We stayed here for a short getaway - celebrating our wedding anniversary and one of our kid's birthdays at Legoland. The hotel is generally in good condition and fairly modern. Our room was decent.

I stayed at this hotel during the last week of May. I managed to get last minute tickets to Legoland, and this hotel is perfectly situated a few minutes away. My first floor room faced the pool, and even with kids enjoying the outside area, you could barely hear them. The breakfast was pleasantly stocked, and very filling. I would... More
