Super convenient to Legoland. They have a private entrance right by a huge Legoland playground so don't have to pay for parking at the park. HUGE pool and hot tub, excellent fitness center and an on-site restaurant with great happy hour specials. They share the pool with the Marbrisa resort across the street and have movies by the pool on... More

Stayed here for 1 night while visiting Legoland. The landscape is really relaxing and enjoyable. Very easy access to the park. The pool looked nice and had many activities to enjoy like ping pong, shuffle board, outdoor movies, and fire pit. The lobby was nice. The restaurant looked enjoyable too but didn't use it. Would definitely return as a get... More

If you are looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to stay in Carlsbad with spacious rooms, comfortable beds, quiet but good location, this may be a right choice for you. The room décor is above average, casually elegant, and everything was immaculate. Location is right next to LEGOLAND for families, also close to the outlets, and is about a 5... More

Stayed at this wonderful beautiful resort this past Memorial Day weekend with all my family which consisted of 8 people. We all enjoyed the amenities this resort had to offer that included kid activities such as board games, Dive-In Movies by the pools, crafts, pool side BBQ dinners, Starbucks, etc. We appreciated the convenience of purchasing LegoLand tickets, the private...

Took my grandkids 4 & 6 here and picked this location because you literally walk out the front lobby entrance to LEGOLAND. We were going to do LEGOLAND for 2 or 3 days and someone else suggested to us that 1 day there is good enough and they were right. Another day we drove to the San Diego Safari Park... More

Stayed here during a week of training. I was truly impressed. The only thing I can ding them for is so minor, but it will show you that they have covered all bases. The desk inside the room, is not facing out to the beautiful lagoon that is on the West-North-West of the property. Another minor thing, either I was... More

I usually think of Sheraton as a cheap average hotel chain. So I was very surprised by the pictures I saw online because of how beautiful and luxurious it looked. The pool area was amazing, and had nice views of the hills. Everything smells so nice due to the flowers planted everywhere. There is a nice restaurant on the property... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel! I am glad we squashed your perception as we a far more than average. The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa is an amazing place to stay.

This is a beautiful resort located atop a bluff above Carlsbad. My wife and I stayed here for a conference for 3 nights and enjoyed the amenities it had to offer including a nice pool and a large, well equipped fitness center. The restaurant was nice, the rooms are spacious and well appointed. This would be a great location for... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! The Sheraton Carlsbad is great for meetings, vacations or both. We are happy to have such a great location in North County! You hit the nail on the head when you said “centrally located” for families to take advantage of. We are your one stop shop with something for everyone.... More

The Sheraton Carlsbad staff made my stay awesome. We stayed 2 nights for a Legoland birthday party. The awesome began at check-in. As SPG gold members, the front desk upgraded our room and made sure my in-laws were close (but not too close). We hadn't even settled into our room yet, when a birthday gift basket arrived from the front... More

Half of our family members arrived a day later, and stayed here when we all went to LEGOLAND. We did not. However, there were no racks of local attraction brochures at the LEGOLAND Hotel, and I was told that I might find them at the Sheraton. So, we drove up, and went into the Lobby looking for the information. I... More
