Staying in Carlsbad/Oceanside in August is not the cheapest exercise...so I hunted around and chose this place saving myself a lot of dollars for the 8 night stay...it was business.
This place did the job. It's not a 1 star place, no matter what others might say here, it's a rock solid budget hotel that does the job well if you get your expectations right.
So, good points...it's very convenient to the I-5 if you need to commute and I did. It's got great internet connectivity that's free...and that's a plus. It's got a decent desk where you can do some work...it's got a fridge for your drinks and a microwave. The television did the job and it's clean and functional. Breakfast is included and it's OK.
So...the not so goods...the room is a bit small if you've got a family...but if it's you or your partner you're OK. The bathroom is functional but no more. The room cleaning did the room, Room 137, consistently late and sometimes after 4.00pm which is not acceptable. The hotel is not elegant...it's a square block by the side of the road. Let's call it a functional design in the US motel style.
The staff are very friendly and took in 3 parcels for me reliably.
I preferred the Days Inn, where I stayed last time, but it was significantly more expensive this time.
This place is OK if being on a budget is your aim. It's OK. I'm sure that there are plenty of better hotels in the area but if you do stay here it'll do the job and you won't pay a fortune.
