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

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

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

If you don't want the craziness at the Legoland hotel and still have direct, walking access to the park, then this is the place to stay. The pool is very nice and large. They have kid activities during the day and night. The restaurant is decent but convenient. I would drive down to the city center for dinners. Overall, it... More

I wish there were half stars because I want to give this place 4.5 stars. I really enjoyed my experience staying here (already stayed twice and going back for a third). The hotel location is perfect if you are visiting Legoland as they have a private entrance to Legoland that is walking distance from the hotel. The last time I... More

We stayed here as part of a competition that was being held at Legoland. Very comfy rooms, helpful staff and the kids loved the pool and hot tub. The bar in the evening was a bit of a hit or miss - the bar staff were very good at not paying attention when they wanted to which was a pity... More

The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa is the perfect place to stay on your visit to the San Diego/Cralsbad area. Less than 45 minutes away from San Diego, this Resort provides all the amenities you could ask for and it does so with exceptional service from an amazing staff. Although getting there means traveling across the country, I can't wait... More

I was a little concerned when I saw how close this hotel was to Lego land. Absolutely surprised how quite this hotel was. Valet staff super quick getting my car each and every time. Grounds beautiful. Had an ocean room, that was a bit of a stretch. Had to stand on my tip toes and look through the trees. Had... More

Property is really nice, food was great, pool and gym were awesome. There was a great, mellow vibe at this hotel. It has nothing really close by besides Lego Land. The outlet mall is a good walk away, but has very few restaurants, so you are going to either have a car or then use the courtesy car service. I... More
