The West Inn is the defintely a 5-star top of the line hotel. The hotel and grounds are immaculate.. I am quite fussy about where I stay and I did not find one thing wrong with this hotel. The room was beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. The bathroom was a good size and had a huge tiled shower, granite counters and pretty white linens with Aveda bath products. They have complimentary beer and wine for an hour on Monday thru Thursday and milk and cookies at bedtime. A full hot/cold breakfast each morning. We had just stayed at the Beverly HIlton for 3 nights and its hard to believe that the West Inn put the Hilton to shame. The rooms at the Hilton were just ok and the baths extremely small. If you are passing through Carlsbad, it would be a big mistake not to stop in for a stay at the West Inn. I wish I could have stayed longer.
There are 2 5-star restaurants on the property which were packed each night. The West Steak house and the West Bistro. These are definitely filled up by the locals. Our meal at the Bistro was excellent. My only regret is that this is the only West Inn out there...I wish they were all over because that is the only place that I would stay!
