“Decent place, but not for the price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stayed here in peak season to go to Lego Land and to visit all the other typical San Diego spots. Decent place, but pull out couch crappy (they all are, but this one even worse.) Free breakfast had runny cold egg, no place to sit, and they kept running out of things and not restocking. Free dinner was horrible... Only one item to choose from (some kind of mystery Italian dish) with green beans and salad. But on the upside, free alcohol and good bread made me forget the crappy food. (Too bad it didn't help my kids with zero choice of anything else) Which brings me to the final bad part of the hotel... Great for Lego Land, but it's in middle of nowhere. We ended up driving 5 miles to downtown Carlsbad to have non-free dinner or edible food.

close to Legoland Park and the beach, centrally located to reach Disneyland and Sea World fairly easily, great kitchenette space, very friendly and helpful staff, decent complimentary breakfast, good accommodations for family of four, great vanity to store everyone's toiletries and makeup (good when traveling with a teenage daughter), quick check-in and check-out process, convenient to check out at noon (gave us a chance to go to the beach for a morning walk and still have time to get everyone cleaned up and packed before returning home without feeling rushed)

We have stayed here, at least, three times over the last couple of years. The heating/air conditioning system is impossible to adjust. The room is either freezing or hot and stuffy. The quality of the "free" breakfast has deteriorated. It used to seem freshly cooked. No more. This will be our last stay here.

Great place to stay with kids, the breakfasts and dinners really help to cut down on the food costs of the trip. Hotel is not located in a place that you can walk anywhere for food etc., so if you're depending on the shuttle, you can be out of luck if you don't book ahead of time! We didn't want to rent a car but you almost have to at this location.

The Homewood Suites was very nice. Thank you for a good stay. I would consider putting rearview mirrors in the bathrooms. This is one of my biggest complaints when traveling. It is not a big cost yet, women would so appreciate this small but special accommodation. It would cause me to stay at more Hilton locations. Please consider this.

Beautifully maintained facility with exceptionally helpful staff and comfortable, spacious rooms. Staff does an outstanding job at breakfast and during the manager's reception in keeping drinks poured and food at the ready. Not one single complaint, other than to say it is shameful how some guests take advantage of no-cost food and beverages!
