We stayed at the Sheraton for a few days over the holidays to visit Legoland. The hotel grounds are spacious and well kept, our room was spacious and clean, the beds were very comfortable (even better than some five star establishments!), the staff was uber friendly and the restaurant was a hit (great outdoor patio and extensive kid menu).

During a recent 2 day trip to Legoland, we chose to spend two nights at the Sheraton, Carlsbad Resort and Spa. In terms of convenience, it's hard to beat this locale unless you stay on Legoland property -- the Sheraton has a private back entrance to the park which is easily walkable from the hotel, but the staff is eager...

We arrived 4 hours before allowed check in and it was no problem. Staff was kind and courteous. They upgraded us even without any extra charge. Room was very clean and so were the grounds. Very quiet at night. Juan was very helpful when we needed to know anything about the area and went out of his way to make... More

Second time using this location for company meeting. I love the service, the property, hotel restraunt, and clean comfortable rooms. Located near LegoLand so ideal for family but found this place good for meeting as well. Did I mention the good service?

When we arrived, Juan greeted us at the door. He carried our luggage to our rooms for us when he saw I had an ankle injury. Throughout our stay, Juan con tinted to remember us and ask how my ankle was and if things were going well for me. I would say he really set the bar on service! Such... More

They are located right behind the Legoland and have their own private back entrance which is very convenient if you are planning to visit there. We usually stay here whenever we want to have a weekend trip with our kids to San Diego even if we are not going to Legoland due to its family friendly atmosphere, having a large... More

We stay here often and love this resort. It's quiet with lovely views. Make sure to request 2nd or 3rd floor ocean view. The first floor isn't close to being as nice. Also, if you get a room at the back you get parking lot views. The staff is very friendly and they seem to try and accommodate early check-in.... More

I've stayed in the area a number of times for business, this is the first time at this property. Great choice, grounds and rooms were very nice.......quiet comfortable room. Very nice fitness room and large pool and hot tub. Short drive to the beach and the downtown village. Will continue to stay here when in the area

The hotel in general is very nice. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The food in restaurant twenty/20 is excellent. We had breakfast and dinner several times and the food was awesome. Great place to stay!

This hotel is in a great location but leaves little to be desired otherwise. The grounds are nicely kept and the staff is very nice but the rooms we had were nothing special and overpriced for what they were. We did request connecting rooms but it felt like we were put in the basement of the entire resort when seemingly... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. We hope to have another opportunity to wow you next time you visit Carlsbad. Our connecting rooms are located on the first floor, perhaps next time we can offer you a higher floor with rooms next door. Did you have a chance to use the 24 hour heated pool? Ocean... More
