“Very clean & affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Great continental breakfast with hot & cold items. Location is 10 min. from beach. Downtown Carlsbad has some great shopping & restaurants. The staff is very friendly especially Malv & Jay who helped whenever needed.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are quiter.

If you need a hotel in the area, this is it. Ditto on the other good reviews. Great breakfast, good maintenance, fairly attentive staff, etc. If you stay here it's "0" to reach the front desk and not the button that's labeled "front desk". Other than that, it was fine.

We had a suite - king bed, sofa bed, and added a rollaway bed as well, so two adults and two kids could sleep comfortably. The room was not large, but it had a refrigerator and microwave, comfy beds, and everything was clean and well-maintained. I thought the free breakfast was above average - make your own waffles, boiled eggs, pastries, bread, cereal, milk, juice, coffee. The location is near a grocery store and drugstore, near the beach, just off I-5 - we really liked this hotel. It's not fancy, but for a family of 4 on a budget, it was perfect.

Room was clean and spacious, breakfast was adequate and staff was pleasant. I would reccommend to anyone. Very close to a grocery store, gas station, expressway and the ocean (just a few blocks straight out.)

As soon as i arrived i was impressed with the maintenance of the property. I was not impressed with the structure but just the way they maintained it. The building structure still looks like a motel 6 from outside. The paint is new and building is updated and kept nice and clean. The room "interiors" are excellent and match upscale hotels.hotel has all the "basic" amenities.If i were to compare it to budget hotels ..like motel6, super8, dayinn ..etc, this motel ranks high. There is no way you can compare it to hotels like holiday inn, ramada...etc since the hotel built is quite different. if i do that, the ranking of this hotel would fall sharply. Given that the price of the hotel is at the higher end , i am not convinced that the hotel is a "value". I would rather pay 10 to 20 dollars more and get into the higher end hotels with better buildings rather than settle for a two story hotel with rooms facing into the parking lot and a railing.
I came during the very busy long weekend. The breakfast room is a 100 to 150 sq room which is very small to serve breakfast for a 40 rooms hotel. people were bumping into each other during breakfast time. 10 people can barely sit in the room and 6 people can sit outside.

The toilet in my room got clogged during my stay.I told the hotel manager about it. He replied back saying that i need a plunger.He gave me a plunger and asked me to unclog the toilet myself. This toilet problem has happened for the first time during my hotel stay anywhere so i don't know if its standard procedure to unclog the toilet by yourself. maybe other veteran travelers can comment.
overall, i would recommend the hotel only if you get this at a price which matches similar budget hotels ( like motels6, days inn..etc).if the price is higher, i would pass this.

Our stay coincided with a visit to Legoland. For our purposes the Econo Lodge was perfect.

For the price the accomodations were more than we could have expected and the staff (especially Jay) was helpful and proactive in providing us with a nice experience.

The breakfast layout was easy to negotiate and there was ample food and seating.

There was also conveniently located cafes and dining establishments and Legoland is less than 5 minutes away.

Overall a fine experience.

Thank you.

Best Econo Lodge that I ever visited on my life. I was on Oct. 27 weekend and rooms are clean, modern, safe big and with an excellent staff. Bed was awesome and check in and out was very quickly. Definitelly best option near Legoland.
