Our 3 night stay at the West Inn in July was a highlight of our vacation. The effortless door-to-door shuttle to Legoland, thoughtful provision of pool toys and beach gear, and yummy cookies at night and breakfast in the mornings were excellent foundations for our trip. Our comfy bed, heavenly sheets, and our kids' separate room with their own screen... More

What a wonderful hotel! Every single staff member that we encountered was friendly and helpful. When checking in, Nicholas was attentive to our every need. The entire facility is new, well maintained, clean & fresh. Our room was well appointed and extremely quiet. We couldn't even tell that it was near the freeway! Others have mentioned the nearby train tracks... More

I can't say enough how incredible this place is! Every one from the front desk to the maids was happy and friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and the beds were so comfortable.

The accommodations were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was a well thought out variety and very good. The 8:00 pm cookies & milk were a highlight for... More

West Inn and Suites was amazing! Comfy beds, free beach rentals, cookies at night, free breakfast and so friendly! I can see why they are rated number one. The complimentary game and movie rentals really helped during the week when there wasn't much on TV for families at night. The pool was clean and warm. My family thoroughly loved staying... More

This was our first trip to Carlsbad. The location was great, the hotel was clean. The staff at the West Inn were incredibly helpful and responsive. There are a lot of extras (pool and beach toys, discount Legoland tickets, extra large tables at the breakfast buffet) that make this hotel very family friendly.

This was a quick stay cation! The team at West Inn was awesome. From checking in to checking out they were pleasant and accommodating. The free breakfast was a REAL breakfast. This would be a great spot for families with children going to Lego Land.
