The West Inn provided us with a wonderful place to stay and relax while we visited the Carlsbad, CA area for the Marathon. The rooms had very comfortable king size beds, with up-to-date bathrooms and room furniture. The service was very friendly and helpful. The pool was heated and the whirlpool spa was an excellent amenity to use after the marathon race. The hotel has a luxury atmosphere yet the nightly rate did not bankrupt us. The on-site restaurants had good food though the Steakhouse was a little nicer and had quicker service. A definite thumbs up on this hotel.
