“Surprising”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This Econo Lodge was probably the cleanest low budget hotel I have stayed in. You could tell the room had been recently remodeled and everything was super clean. You could tell the bed was new and it was extremely comfortable. The morning breakfast was nice with a waffle maker, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee, etc.

The bad, yes the freeway can be heard from the room. Our solution was to turn on the room AC/Heater. Most of the night it was one the low heat setting, but the white noise helped drown out the freeway noise.

The room was large. It was very clean. The room had a fridge and microwave. They provide complimentary soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. Most discount places only provide a combo shampoo /conditioner so this was nice.
The breakfast room was clean. That had the waffle maker, cereal, fruit toast, coffee, milk, juice and hard boiled eggs. The eggs were a nice touch since most free breakfasts don't have any protein.
We stayed one night before Legoland. For the price this place is great. There is a lot of traffic noise, but it didn't really bother us. Beds are very comfortable.

This hotel was clean and comfortable, but being right next to the freeway it was noisy. We heard the traffic all night long and it was disruptive. There's got to be a better choice.

This was a great place for my family. The room were super clean. The breakfast was delicious. The staff were very kind and excellent. Legoland was only about 5 minutes away. Totally recommend this place.

We stayed over the course of a week while visiting family in the area. Every room we stayed in was clean, neat, comfortable, and the beds were pillow top soft. Very accomidating to our needs, Hannah(the front desk) and Kumar(front desk) all were very wonderful during each stay. Always helpful, smiling, and check-in was never a hassle. Cleaner than any hotel in the entire city, over the years we've stayed at the Rodeway, Best Western, and a few off brand near the beach, NONE of them compare to the comfort, cleanliness, or price that this hotel offers. We've stayed at several hotels on the 101 highway & every one of them have run down rooms, overpriced, and little or no parking. At Econo Lodge every room is modern and tastefully decorated, showers all have grab bars, rooms have microwave & fridge, with plenty of leg room, on site laundry room, clean swimming pool, free onsite parking, clean and well kept property overall, with a free continental breakfast, and it's located just off the interstate which makes it easy access, you'll be close to the beach(without paying high prices) within 2 miles straight down Carlsbad Village Drive where you can find plenty of great places to eat & shop; all just down the street from this wonderful hotel. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!! Stay at a different hotel then come stay at this one and you'll understand why we don't waste our time or money staying anyplace else when we come to visit family in Carlsbad.

The only down side would be if you arrive late and get placed in a room closer to the interstate, I-5 is extremely busy and noisy, so yes you will have to deal with interstate noise just like all the hotels along a normal busy highway so keep that in mind, rooms closer to the middle of the property or back area are a little quieter. If you want total quiet, then don't stay in a hotel that is near the interstate. Common sense should tell you this and to all ready know this before you book the room or stay at any hotel right next to one of California's busies interstates! It is not noise free, you will have interstate noise: ALL hotels along the interstate have this problem, deal with it or stay someplace else away from the interstate if you are a winer, you know the type to complain because the interstate noise was too loud, boo-hoo, well what did you expect the hotel is right next to I-5, duh!
Turn the AC/Heater unit on low fan, it'll drown out most of the interstate noise.
This hotel is immaculate compared to everything else in the entire town, it has great service, ammenities, great location, and value that can't be beat.

Room Tip: Book your room online and request a downstairs room near the swimming pool, this will give you a qui...

This is one of the best hotels I've seen in the Southwest. Stayed at many hotels in California and they are pretty bad. This one was clean. The staff was great. Breakfast was great. They maintained the food and there was someone there and available all the time. There was a small business area with computer and printer. I have no complaints. I was definitely impressed and would go there again.
