Carlsbad, California is a fun place to visit. Located just north of San Diego, it’s a popular stopover for those visiting Legoland, nearby museums, or the ever- popular and scenic Pacific Ocean beaches. It is also home to some very impressive places of lodging, one of which is the West Inn & Suites. I stayed at this boutique hotel on...

We needed a place to stay over Thanksgiving and based on location and rate I opted for the West Inn & Suites. I was hoping to find somewhere decent, clean and hopefully no less than mediocre. Didn't know anything about it, had never heard of it but decided to take a chance.... WOW - we hit the jackpot. We are...

My daughter and I stayed here last week. The staff was so friendly each time we passed by in the lobby. My daughter said the beds were the most comfortable that she's ever had in a hotel. If you're sensitive to the sound of trains I would not stay here. The continental breakfast was pretty standard, the hotel is fairly...

Found this on Tripadvisor, and West Inn didn't disappoint. The staff was great and accomodating. Stayed for 3 nights for a family trip to go to Legoland, and this place is just about perfect. Close to the Legoland, and other places in Carlsbad. Everyone from the front desk to housekeeping to the servers at the restaurant were great. Will be...

We spent two nights at the West Inn this past weekend and couldn't be happier with the service and cleanliness of the building. The only thing I would recommend is to have more variety for breakfast. Other than that, everything was great.
