“Do not walk barefoot in these rooms.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

First off, the main thing about this place is the noise from the freeway. It sits right smack dab on the probably the busiest freeway in the country and also faces it. Second, I got barely a wink of sleep during my stay because of the noise of the freeway and a drunk couple who were outside fighting, yelling profanity, slamming doors and banging on walls waking up me and my 2 year old. They fought until about 5 or 6am. I guess someone finally called the police. Re the room itself was updated but dirty. The bed had pubic hairs on the sheets and I picked up a nasty case of athletes foot from showering in the tub. Yuck! My feet were itching for days. Also, my son walked around barefoot in the room and after a little while the bottom of his feet turned blackish. One of the worst experiences I've ever had in a hotel/motel.

Great value spotless rooms with loads of space and wonderful reception staff too. For sue this is the best Econolodge I've stayed in. If I'm ever in the area again I'll be dropping by. Great access to the freeway too.

My family and I stayed here for two nights while doing activities in the San Diego area. The motel has easy access to the freeway. The room was very large and clean with plenty of room for our family of five. The staff was very friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable. The continental breakfast was nice with plenty of choices. I would stay here again if visiting the area.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Legoland with our 4 boys. The hotel room was spacious, much larger than most, and there was plenty of room for all 6 of us in one room. I especially appreciated that we were all able to stay in one room. It was quiet at night and there was plenty of hot water in the morning for a shower. The breakfast room is small and somewhat limited in what it offers. There are no whole grain offerings. So bring your own granola or Raisin Bran if that is important to you. And no hot chocolate either. But if your kids love sugar cereals and you like white flour offerings for breakfast, then you will be happy with breakfast.

The room is quite big, clean and confotable. The motel is located outside Carlsbad close to the freeway and very easy to find. Large parking lot. We used this motel as it is close to legoland. Front desk nice and helpful. They stored our lugage for 1 week. The only negative issue is the breakfast. Breakfast room is incredible small (only 3 tables). We had breakfast on the stairs outside the breakfast room. Breakfast very basic and not very good. Give it a chance.

We stayed at the EconoLodge in December for one night and it was very pleasant! The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. Although it was right off from the Freeway, you couldn't really hear the Freeway traffic. The continental breakfast was ok. Would have liked a larger selection, but it was good enough.
