My husband and I dislike staying in motels, hotels, or bed and breakfasts. We like to have our own stuff and eat our own (healthful) cooking. For that, we live and travel in our motorhome and are quite content. Enter the need for some repairs and upgrades requiring us to vacate our home on wheels for five nights... Yikes! But... More

Due to water damage, my family and I were not able to stay at our home. The insurance company sent us to the TownePlace Suites in Vista, and it became our home away from home. I have to say that the staff was very courteous and customer service driven. They always addressed us by our name and even helped me... More

I have been here on many different occasions for business, staying weeks at a time and I have had nothing but amazing customer service. The employees go above and beyond to make sure the guests are as happy as they can be. Brittany and Tiffany, who work the front desk, accommodate every need that I need. They always made sure...

Booked this hotel for a Lego Land vacation for the family. During the entire stay it was loud with running up and down the hallways until 1-2 am. I spoke with the front desk on two separate occasions and nothing change for the three nights we were there.

Staff was very nice, attentive and helpful. Initial room did not meet expectations, staff quickly moved to an excellent room. Had issues with rental car and late check out was denied. My family was asked to leave room and stay in lobby with all our luggage. It was uncomfortable for my wife and 5 kids and embarrassing. I have stayed... More

Stayed here one night for a wedding around the area. Check-in was easy. Hotel was quiet, room was clean. Only downside was that the hotel smelled like a dirty dog. It was especially rank in the elevator. I tried to hold my breath the entire ride. Easy parking as the hotel shares a parking lot with a strip mall. Breakfast... More

We stayed here one night while on a quick trip to Lego Land. We were greeted and quickly checked into our room. Changed our clothes and went for a swim. Pool area was nice and clean and I was happy to find that the water wasn't freezing like so many other hotel pools. After our swim we went to the... More

Stayed here for a family trip in late June 22, 2014 for 4 nights. Had booked the two room suite as a little treat, since the price wasn't bad to give the kids their own room. Property is off the freeway a little bit, but not bad at all. Close to Legoland, which was a plus. Staff was very friendly... More

Very nice hotel, comfy spacious room, friendly staff. The only reason I wouldn't give them an Excellent is the Continental breakfast. No waffle iron number one. Very plain and basic choices. Other than that nice place to stay. Patricia at the front desk in the mornings is very nice and helpful. Also close to the beach.

I just spent 4 nights at this hotel. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. Every staff member smiled and said Hello or Good Morning, etc. I was looking for a box to hold a fragile item that I had purchased, and 2 maintenance staff helped me!
