“Very Pleased”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Lovely accommodations at this location in Carlsbad, CA. We are Rewards members and having stayed at many LQs with our small dogs, we found this to be the usual top notch service that we usually receive at La Quintas across the country. After a very small mix-up upon our arrival, we were compensated with a first floor suite which worked out great with the grandkids staying in the other room for a few days. We enjoyed the pool with them, the hot breakfast, and very pleasant staff. I told the desk manager, Abdias that I would mention him by name in my review as he was very helpful and kind during our stay and gave us a great weekly rate. We highly recommend.

Room Tip: rooms on the first floor in back led out to an ivy filled breezeway perfect for our small dog.

This was our first stay at a La Quinta and we were completely satisfied. The place was spotless and updated. The bathroom did not have one iota of mildew or discoloration. The sparkling clean rooms were a treat after some places we have stayed across the nation. The breakfast had lots of selection (for being an expanded continental type w/oatmeal, 3 cereals, waffle maker, yogurt, bagels, HB eggs, fresh fruits, mini muffins, etc.), but the attendants were always keeping the items filled. The room was large enough to handle the load. The maintenance and room servicing staff were especially on their toes which was noticed and appreciated. All the staff seemed proud of their hotel and eager to serve the guests. We usually stay at Hampton Inn's but will now certainly explore La Quinta's at all future trip locations. They made a convert.

We absolutely loved this hotel. Great location for LegoLand. The front desk went above and beyond when we had trouble locating our vacation folder with other tickets in it. They were great. We had a fabulous experience at this hotel. Our room was close to the freeway side of the hotel, but once inside your room we couldn't hear the traffic at all. Breakfast was filling, the room was clean. Great hotel.

I called yesterday to confirm the reservation, I was told I had a two night stay by the front desk, so I purchase my Lego Land Tickets, I get here today and I'm told we only have one day. Too late I already purchased the multi day pass, I am asked to wait in the lobby while they call the time share company that made the arrangement. I step out for a few minutes and that person is gone, I am told they'll get back to me tomorrow. So meantime we are in limbo not knowing if in the morning we pickup before going to the theme park or they get their act together and deliver on what they said. No one took ownership of the issue, I was told "they'll get things from both sides" I guess that's the nice way of saying we'll confirm if your lying. This is after I showed them call history and emails to prove the validity of my statements.

The location of this La Quinta was great as it was really close to the highway. There were plenty of parking lots. The buildings looked a bit older but the room was a different story. The room was pretty roomy with a king-sized bed. There was even a microwave and a small fridge. The bed was comfortable and we had a good night's rest.

The only thing I did not really like was that the vanity was in between the bathroom and closet. One of us was at the vanity while the other was trying to come out of the bathroom and the door kind of slam into the person standing at the vanity. Other that, it was overall good.

Good location and value! Can't find anything to complain about! The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel was immaculate, food was warm and fresh, pool was clean and kept up. Had a very good night's sleep! Terrific all around! Wish I could have stayed longer!

The wifey and I stayed here for our birthdays this week.
The rate was reasonable for the location. The room was well appointed (Microwave and fridge). The bed was super-comfy. The room clean-up every day was fantastic.

If I HAD to complain about something, it would have been the "efficiency" of the low-flow shower head.
