I really liked this hotel. We have been to Carlsbad several times to go to LEGOLAND and have tried almost 6 different places to stay. This one beats them hands down. New, fresh, classy, clean, comfortable. My favorite things were the bed linens and the heated pool. So many pools are supposed to be heated but they really aren't. This... More

Excellent stay at West Inn and Suites in Carlesbad. Staff service was excellent, polite and efficient. The staff could not do enough for you. Coupled with the high standard of accommodation, shuttle service and comfortable pool area made this a superb stay.

The room was great! There was a living room area separated from the bedroom area by the bathroom and a hallway, and there were separate TVs in each area. The furnishings were mostly very nice (except for some paintings that were ugly in my opinion). Decent DVDs (not first-run, but good) were provided for free for playing. Room service was... More

We recently went to Carlsbad CA for a long weekend and to attend the 3rd Annual Carlsbad Brewfest. The West Inn was one of the sponsors and Brewfest goers received a special room rate and free shuttle service to/from the fest location. These perks contributed to our decision to stay at West Inn Suites, in addition to the rave reviews... More

Our whole family stayed at the West Inn and Suites for a week at the end of September. Everyone at the hotel made us feel really special. We had two king suites and one double suite for our family. The rooms were large, clean and really quiet because of the triple pane windows. The grandchildren loved the pool, hot tub,... More

We stayed at the West Inn & Suites based on the great Trip advisor reviews, and it did not disappoint! Convenient location near the beach and downtown Carlsbad.

We have stayed here three times. Although it is primarily a family and pet friendly hotel, the rooms are well done and generously appointed. There are safes in the rooms, wifi, guest laundry, free parking and breakfast. The staff is completely into service with a smile . Great value
