“Great value and incredible service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I can't say enough about how well this hotel is managed. I've stayed at several Marriott and Holiday Inn properties and payed up to $279 a night and haven't been as pleased as I have been here. I really have no complaints and usually have 1 or 2 at the more expensive places. Next time I'm out here this is where we will stay. If your concern is cleanliness, nice pool, great location, friendly staff, GREAT customer service, just right Continental Breakfast then this is the perfect place for you! Note: We were not bothered at all by the noise from I-5. People have different mattress preferences so expect it may not be your #1 choice but they do seem to be in the middle between firm and soft so it works.

I went with this motel mostly because of the reasonable rate with breakfast included and the reviews I read on Tripadvisor. Hanna was very nice and always there to help. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable...what more could you ask for?? Very convenient to the freeway and all local areas. Look no further, book this motel now!

We stayed here just 1 night for our trip to Legoland. We arrived very late, but were greeted by a friendly staff member at the front desk who gave us our key. The room was very spacious, with a microwave and refrigerator. Everything was immaculate and well-maintained. The beds were comfortable.

Breakfast was included and was quite nice. There was cereal, toast, danishes, fruit, coffee, hard-boiled eggs, and you could even make your own waffles.

The hotel is only 5-10 minutes from Legoland, which was very convenient.

I noticed in other reviews that some people were bothered by the noise from the nearby freeway. This was not an issue for us at all.

So, in summary, this is an excellent motel and perfect if you're visiting Legoland.

Very Clean Rooms, Very Friendly, very easy access to Ocean Beaches and entertainment sites just North of San Diego. Safe parking, great Continental breakfast. On sight laundry room. Close to Catalina Ferry access from Dana Point. Very helpful office staff. Hanna is always available to help.

Room Tip: We liked the first floor near the office, but all rooms are equal.

Very large room, good breakfast with eggs. Very clean. Desk, wifi, only lacked coffeepot in room. Very friendly staff, accommodated our dog. Would definitely stay again. The parking is inside a courtyard so very safe.

Given the fact that it was an econolodge, we did not have high expectations. But we booked it as other Tripadvisor reviewers gave it a good rating. And they were right. The rooms were huge and very clean.

The property owners live on the property and they take care well. We were greeted nicely by the lady at the reception who probably was the property owner. She was nice enough to offer to pen the breakfast room for the night for us to get milk for the kids, as we were checking in at night after a day at Legoland.

Keep in mind that this property is right next to I-5, so is a little noisy. And the beds were not the greatest, found them to be a tad soft. But otherwise, the room was very clean. Had a large open area in front of the beds for the kids to play. The in-room microwave and refrigerator were in good shape.

Overall, this is a great place to stay at if visiting Legoland. We did take out food from a nearby Thai restaurant and that was good as well.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms near the break fast room as those are at the back of the property and away from hig...

This hotel is well run.
The owner was willing to help us and made it a positive experience.
It has a laundry room. breakfast is simple and fine.
To curb the traffic noise we ran the fan, that worked as highway is busy,

Room Tip: The mexican restaurant at the Carlsbad Inn a few minutes away was great.
