We were in Carlsbad overnight on business. The hotel room was spacious , comfortable and quiet. We had a wonderful late night dinner with friends on the patio of the hotel restaurant. The fountains and the blazing fire pit create a beautiful setting. We liked the fact that the pool and spa were open 24 hours because we used the... More

We picked this hotel as we were on our way to Rancho Mirage, but were going to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on the way there. Being an SPG member we stayed there on points. Originally it was just going to be the two of us, but our son joined us so we had to upgrade the room for... More

This was a perfect spot to stay and visit Legoland. My husband, and I, and our 3 year old son, enjoyed the accommodations. The rooms are nice (love the mini fridge in the room for my chocolate milk drinker), the pool and grounds are lovely, and best of all, there is a separate walking entrance to Legoland from the property....

Thank you for the Wonderful Review! The Sheraton Carlsbad is the place to stay when you are visiting LEGOLAND or the surrounding areas. It’s a short train ride into San Diego or Anaheim to catch Mickey Mouse and Friends. We are very fortunate have our own private entrance into LEGOLAND, it makes it very convenient when you have little ones... More

We tried to stay at Legoland Hotel again but couldnt get a room. I remembered seeing on the map that the Sheraton is also attached. it worked out pretty well for us with 5 year old kids. Less fun but more adult and less chaotic. We got the coastal view (distant but decent) room. It is about a 10 min... More

We are currently staying at the Sheraton, Carlsbad...and having an amazing experience! The resort is fun, beautiful, and family-friendly (although we are here on our first kid-free vacation in a year). Upon check-in, we met a pleasant and energetic young woman named Sara. We frequent resorts and hotels (although often with our little ones), and have rarely met someone as... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful complements about Sara. She is one of new team members this summer and she is knocking it out of the park. She is a true example of what hospitality is about. We strive as a team to make each guest stay a memorable one. We hope to see you and... More

We stayed at the Sheraton in May 2014 because it was so close to LEGOLAND. It is close and the hotels and grounds are beautiful, however the staff was horrible. We had problems with the guests above us being extremely loud. We complained, nothing was done. They charged us twice for parking, we only had 1 vehicle. It took them... More

Stayed June 23rd - 26th When I arrived, the bellman/valet came out to greet me. I told him that I was meeting my husband inside and that once we found out if our room was ready, we would park the car. He said, no problem and to just leave the keys with him. Our room was not ready, so they... More

I stayed here for two nights while attending a conference. The location is just a few miles East off the 5 fwy, be alert to find the road and entrance to what I call resort row.

Stayed here a single night, June 29. As SPG members we’ve stayed at numerous Sheraton properties and we’ve never been disappointed. We chose this property because of its proximity to the Crossings at Carlsbad golf course where my wife enjoys their Sunday brunch offerings. We actually arrived around 10am and tried to check-in. Naturally, nothing was available at that time.... More

We wanted to stay outside of San Diego and chose this Sheraton resort, hoping it would be relaxing and low-key. We were so pleased when driving up to this resort as the grounds are very attractive and the hotel is on a hill with a view of the ocean in the distance. We stopped in early to see if perhaps...
