“Great rooms, breakfast service could improve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay here over New Years. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were excellent, but I have to say that getting breakfast was challenging. There was rarely room to sit down, let alone find an omelette. Once the omelettes were refilled, it was impossible to get one unless you were standing right there, waiting for one, as they went so fast. Trying to make waffles was also a challenge as that is a very popular station and the line would be in the middle of the serving area.

Stayed January 2013, traveled with family

This hotel is almost brand new, so the rooms and decor are very fresh and comfortable. But if you go there as a couple without kids, as my wife and I did, just be aware that, probably due to it's proximity to Lego Land and other such sites, there may be tons of children. In our case, it was like a veritable nursery, with tons of unattended kids running through the hallways making noise at all hours, and overcrowded breakfasts.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, get a room on the upper floor at the end of the hallway.

This is a 4 year old property. It is a neat and clean hotel. It is in a safe neighborhood. The room had microwave and refrigerator. There is a laundry facility. Mine was on the same floor. I think there is one on each floor. The breakfast was free and was sumptuous, fresh, and had variety. The Internet connectivity was slow, even with a “wired” connection. They have both wired and wireless options. Even with a “wired” connection it felt like a “dial-up” line. My phone’s 3G was much faster. I tried it only in the room. I did not try it in the lobby. There are many restaurants, groceries, and pharmacies within a 5-10 mile radius, but none are within walking distance though. I stayed for 10 days. All in all, it is a great hotel.

Broken Yolk café is famous. It is open for breakfast and lunch from 6a-3p. It is about 5 miles from this hotel, at the corner of El Camino Real & La Costa. You can search for it online. Rubios is a fresh, quick service Mexican place. It is a chain and there are many. Their burritos are good.

I stayed at this location for 4 days for business travel. It was clean, updated and the staff was very friendly. If you need a good clean hotel room for business travel, you really cant go wrong with the Hampton Inn. Would stay here again.

We spent Thanksgiving weekend at this Hampton Inn and it was very nice. The rooms are very comfortable, had a good bed, a sleeper sofa, refrigerator and microwave. It was clean when we arrived, front office people were all very helpful and the breakfast crew worked hard to keep fresh food stocked and ready for everyone. Only issue we had was the room wasn't cleaned until very late Saturday afternoon after we asked for somebody to do the room right away. We will be back!

This is my 3rd stay at the Hampton Inn in Carlsbad.
It was clean ... I ended up getting upgraded to a suite.
It was very nice.
The bed was extremely comfortable.
The desk staff were nice and helpful with advice and directions for local stores.
The water pressure was good.
The only downside is that the bathroom counter was a bit small.
I would definintely stay again!!
