We stayed at the Homewood Suites in Carlsbad, our 2nd experience with Homewood, and we were extremely pleased. We are big fans of Embassy Suites, but there isn't a Embassy located in Carlsbad. Homewood gives us the same ammenities as the Embassy, just downscaled and simplified, but the price also reflects this. We travel with 2 children, so having the separate bedroom with a door is a must. We love the full fridge and kitchenette and the breakfast (downscaled from the Embassy breakfast-no made to order omelet bar, pancakes or sausage & bacon) provided us with everything we needed (eggs, potatoes, biscuits, waffles, cereals, oatmeal) for 2 adults, a toddler and a baby just starting on table foods. My only complaint was that I wish they had more fresh fruit for our kids, just apples and oranges, which is a bit challenging for a 9 mo old. Bananas & melons would have been preferred. Our room was very well designed with the bathroom in the bedroom, it was quiet and very comfortable. The staff was all very pleasant and helpful. We plan on seeking out Homewood Suite locations for our future vacation plans. My son missed the glass elevators and Koi in the lobby (like at the Embassy), but for ~$80 less a night, I am OK with skipping those features. If you stay Mon - Thurs they have a light dinner and happy hour. We miss the Saturday evening Happy hour that Embassy provides, but they have a little convenience "store" in the lobby and we bought a very reasonable priced decent bottle of wine for us to enjoy in our room (which is stocked with a bottle opener) and we were very happy to enjoy a couple of glasses after our kids went to sleep in the family room area. The family room is also big enough to pull out the sofa sleeper and our pack & play and still not feel crowded. I feel that we will be regular guests of the Homewood brand of hotels. Location is a bit inland, so if you are looking for a beach location, this isn't it. It is located near a commerce area of Carlsbad, but still only about 5 min from Legoland which was the reason for our visit.
