Following a horrible hotel stay in San Diego, we checked Trip Advisor to try and find a nicer hotel to escape to! Fortunately the West Inn and Suites at Carlsbad had a family suite available and was rated number one on trip advisor. We had stayed at the Doubletree Suites at Anaheim (also rated number one on Trip Advisor) and that was a great experience. so we though we couldn't go wrong that way.
That a relief it was driving up to the hotel. The entrance was just so beautiful and welcoming - the foyer was decorated for christmas, carefully tended gardens, staff were amazing and the room was much nicer than we have experienced in many 5 star hotels around the world. Room facilities were great, lovely Aveda toiletries, welcoming breakfast/tv/library area, great pool area (lots of steam coming off the heated pool as the weather was very cold!).
Location is great - lots of food options nearby. Very short drive to Legoland and the Carlsbad beach area is so pretty.
This might just be the best hotel we have stayed at! We felt sad to leave. Would highly recommend, especially for families with small children. What a wonderful hotel.
