We are platinum SPG members and picked this resort for our visit to The Wild Animal Park in Escondido. Initially I was disappointed that there was no club lounge but the other perks we got helped lessen the disappointment. This resort does charge for parking and there is a resort fee (which is clearly posted on the website and at... More

If you are looking for the perfect place to enjoy golf, food and fabulous spa, Sheraton Carlsbad is the place to visit. Quiet, peaceful property with the nicest staff to enhance your stay! VERY clean facilities and excellent food and wine no matter if you are at the Twenty/20 bar or in your room.

We attended a meeting at the Sheraton Carlsbad in January 2015. Though it is winter Carlsbad is blessed with fabulous weather so much of the winter. We had a room on the third (top) floor with a filtered view of the Pacific Ocean. The setting made me take a long deep breath and i noted that just looking at the... More

We've stayed here twice in connection with family trips to Legoland. The service has been impeccable each time. Twenty 20 is excellent as well. We will recommend this hotel to others and will be back again soon!

My husband booked a stay at your hotel 2 weeks prior and after a long drive we came into your WONDERFUL smelling lobby! Where we were registered and into our room in less than 5 minutes. The room was very nice and quiet with a beautiful view of Legoland and sunsets every night. We were able to either take your... More

Exactly what it says in the title. The Sheraton Carlsbad is nice enough for a romantic weekend and is literally steps away from Legoland if your want to take the kids for a family getaway. The food at the restaurant is innovative and tasty. Service was friendly and prompt. Zero problems.

Great location and a relaxing hotel. The rooms are a decent size and the hotel has a calming feel about it. I agree with an earlier review, some of the prices are OTT in the coffee/sundry shop. Bagels $3-4 a go for example, expensive when you have 4 in the family... Great for Legoland though and I'd always come back... More

We had a perfect stay in Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. Wonderful interiors and picturesque outdoor/landscape. The lobby is grand and the pool area is very inviting. It's conviniently located next to Legoland with private entrance. We received excellent service from the front desk, front office Supervisor, Jessen Jardin and William from Accounting department. I will definitley return to this... More
