My husband and 2 boys (teenager and elementary-school aged) stayed 1 night at this hotel during our visit to Legoland. Location: Great spot for Legoland. You walk through the parking lot and up a small path to the entrance. There is 1 person scanning tickets. I could see how it may be backed up like another reviewer mentions, but worth... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here last week for the start of our girls trip (no husbands and no kiddos). Check in was easy, quick and when we got to our room, it was perfect. We had a coastal view room which is slightly misleading because you almost need binaulars to see a tiny inch of coast in the distance.... More

Large clean room. 3 min walk across the parking lot was a separate entrance to Legoland. Ordered room service, the food was good however they forgot 2 of my items and I had to wait another 10 mins to get those.

I stayed here due to the Legoland access. One of the worst experiences ever. The access point is in a construction zone and very disorganized. Waited nearly 1 hour in a single line for people with or without tickets. If you have tickets you wait until all folks in front of you go through all their ticket options and select... More

Great for business and pleasure. Wonderful service and quality fit out. Next door to LEGOLAND for the kids and close to outlet mall and town/beach etc. Highly recommended. If travelling by car a really central spot and not far to San Diego for sea world etc.

I booked last minute while in Carlsbad on business. Booked via the Starwoods IPad app. I was expecting the run of the mill Sheraton. The hotel for sure exceeded my expectations. The guys at valet could tell that I had a long day and offered to pull my luggage out of the car for me as I checked in. I... More

Spent 4 nights here in March for a conference. Nice rooms with well appointed finishes, courteous staff, and a pretty good bar! Great pool area, but could use more servers to look after the guests outside. Parking is a bit of a pain if you don't plan on using the valet service. Nice meeting rooms and conference facility

Saturday night and the hotel has blocked off all the parking close to the hotel. Dozens of empty spots nearest the hotel that actual paying hotel guests are not allowed to use. A small armada of cars circling around looking for spots. Parked 10 minutes from room. Manager happened to be at front desk and when I complained, he offered... More

We arrived Saturday evening and stayed one night with our family. The room was very nice. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and the staff was very accommodating for our large group that included several young grandchildren. My favorite thing about this hotel is that they hire mature staff. They were very caring and made sure that we got... More

I travelled to Lego Land with my toddler and chose this hotel because of its proximity to Lego Land and the pool area. Location: Fantastic location. Less than 5 minute walk to Legoland. Unfortunately, there were no restaurants within walking distance. Rooms: Rooms were great with very comfortable beds. Big plus that our room had a mini fridge for drinks... More
