This is a very nice hotel with great amenities with one exception. We were traveling with children and the sofa bed was unusable. The children ended up sleeping on the floor on the cushions and extra pillows because they were miserable in the pull out sleeper. Do not expect to use it. We were there for several days and this...

As a Nurse I work hard, this is my second experience staying in this new property. The two bedroom suite accommodated my family of 5 quite nicely. The showers are hot, the beds comfortable, the staff friendly and polite until you challenge them. upon checking IN I was quoted a price, at checkout one night was 48.00 more than what... More

Stayed in a studio suite and got an excellent senior rate. The room was large and clean. The bed was fine. Amenities were good: free and fast internet, adequate, if limited, choices for breakfast. All the staff were friendly, welcoming, and helpful.

We come to this area frequently to visit relatives but were often disappointed with the choices in lodging available. Many offerings are not up to our standards. So we have always ended up at the Residence Inn by Mariott, but found that too expensive. We were delighted with this new offering by Mariott, the TownePlace. It is reasonably priced, clean... More

If you find yourself in this part of the world, you could do far worse than this property. Service was friendly and efficient, Internet is free, as is basic breakfast and wine or beer at happy hour. Rooms are set up like small apartments. Kitchenettes are equipped with all basics, one of our rooms had a minuscule bathroom, the second... More

I'm starting to become a fan of Towneplace suite hotels : they offer a very nice modern infrastructure, good sized rooms with a very decent kitchen, at a reasonable rate. I stayed for 4 consecutive days at the Carlsbad location while attending a meeting in the nearby beautiful but pricy LaCosta Resort. GOOD POINTS were : - rapid and efficient... More

The two shuttle drivers that dropped us off at Legoland and picked us up from Legoland were Excellent! Both drivers were friendly, knowledgeable about the local area, prompt and caring about helping my toddler get into a child safety seat. This facility has a super professional staff. They were "real"... down to earth people and I felt that they enjoyed... More

Our family spent 10 days here for Christmas 2011. The staff was courteous and helpful. The suite was amazing and accessabilty to the airport, beach, family, shopping and restaurants was at our fingertips. We will definately stay here again. The facility is only 1 year old and the pool and hot tub was always inviting. You can't go wrong with... More
