“Very Nice Family Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

We went to Legoland with our 6 year old during Thanksgiving break. Very nice family hotel with kitchen. Room was very nice and modern . Beds comfy. Sofa bed was terrible. Very decent free dinner (Monday through Friday. Nice pool and hot tub (didn't use) and a small game room for kids. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Great place for families and apparently very popular for smart family travelers.

Room Tip: Choose Top Floor (3rd) to avoid noise of small children above. Get to breakfast before 9:30 a.m.

My family stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time in Southern California.

Pros: Very clean, large rooms. Fast WiFi and better than average breakfast. They also include a free dinner every night!

Cons: Really not much in the immediate area but very close to the shopping outlets and beaches.

Thank you for your kind review and for taking the time to rate us on TripAdvisor. I am glad you found the meals and the wireless internet to your liking. I understand that you found the immediate area surrounding the hotel to be a little 'suburban'. On future trips, please be aware that we have a complimentary shuttle that operates within 5 miles of the hotel. Thank you again for your review and please come stay with us again.

Stayed here for one night last weekend, on a trip to Legoland. We were planning a 2-day visit to Legoland so we chose this hotel for its proximity to the park. The rooms are very spacious for 4 people and left all comfortably. It was me, husband, 6 yo son and my sister (adult). Originally, my sister was going to sleep on the sleeper sofa (queen) but upon pulling out the bed, and lying on it, it felt TERRIBLE. Super spring-y and you can feel the bars through the paper thin "mattress". I don't really expect much from those sleeper sofas but this one was pretty bad. Thankfully we had two queen beds and she just shared a bed with my son. Other than the sofa bed, I liked everything about the hotel. The lobby was clean and inviting and the facilities overall were excellent. They had coffee service downstairs when we arrived so it was nice to grab a cup after coming in from the rain. Coffee service included hot water for hot chocolate and tea as well. We went for the hot breakfast in the morning and they had scrambled eggs, potatoes, biscuits and gravy as well as the "usual" complimentary breakfast items like make your own waffles, bagels, pastries, cereal and yogurt. The staff was friendly and check-in was quick. Only thing about the staff: we were walking out and stopped by the front desk to ask for extra sheets for the sleeper sofa and they noted our room number and said they would bring it up right away. They did not; however we did find the sheets already in the shelf in the closet. So we didn't need them after all, but nobody every came anyway. I have no other complains other than those two and would definitely stay here again when I visit Legoland or Carlsbad in general.

Excellent stay at the Homewood in Carlsbad. Staff made us feel like we were home. Great personal service from hotel staff. Clean rooms, decent food, and reasonably priced.

Generous sized apartment. It's a one bedroom with a good equipped kitchen. The furniture is contemporary and clean. They offer buffet breakfast, buffet dinner, complimentary 24hr refreshments in the lobby area, WiFi and parking - all included in the price. Staff is always very helpful. LOCATION: Nothing much but it's a 10 minute car ride to most shops, malls, restaurants and the beach. If you are sensitive to noise, the hotel is near an airport so you'll have airplanes going up down throughout the day.

I have rated as 5 based on my expectations. We have been travelling with our 11 months old son. So basically full equipped kitchen was my priority. That's why we have choosen Homewood Suites. We stayed at room 142 which is very close to reception, car parking, breakfast area. So very convenient.
The rooms are exactly the same that was shown in Hilton internet site. So it is a very big plus. It is a very functional room with a kitchen and a living room. We really liked the lights with sensors, very clever.
The housekeeping service was excellent, each day, we found the room and kitchen cleaned in detail.
So, if travelling with kids, very good place to stay.
24 hour complimentary coffee and breakfast was also a very big plus. The breakfast was not the best I had but, not bad at all.
