Spent our annual long weekend with the wonderfully friendly staff at the West Inn. My sister and her kids (ages 3 to 12) and my teenagers as well as our parents spent a relaxing, dare I say luxurious, 4 days in Carlsbad. The weekend did NOT include Legoland (thank heavens!) and even though many of the hotel guests were Legoland-bound... More

We even got a phone call two days before our stay in case we had any special requests! The room was quiet and very clean. Ask for a room on the north side of... More

I'm not a fan of their breakfast but it's ok many of my colleagues like it so maybe I'm being fussy. There... More

Every employee we encountered was cheerful and ready to help us. It was like a dream! They also seemed to be one step ahead of us, seemingly... More

We chose West Inn based on the rave reviews and it did not disappoint! The staff was so friendly, helpful and professional. The amenities were outstanding! I appreciated the shuttle to and from Legoland and surrounding beaches although we only took it to Legoland. You must reserve a spot at the front desk though it fills up. For the beach... More

The hotel is nice, comp breakfast was good, comp cookies and milk in the evening were delicious. Pool and jacuzzi area very comfortable. The staff are extremely courteous. There... More

Breakfast was excellent. Beach equipment was perfect for those flying in from out of town to be able to enjoy a day at the beach. Rooms were clean and staff was extremely friendly. Close to the beach and centrally located!

My visit to the West Inn & Suites was very pleasant! I was in town for business and although I arrived very late, the service was incredible with cookies and milk waiting in my room. Every staff member I passed in the halls always greeted me and not once did I see anything but a smile on their face. Plus,... More

We enjoyed our weekend trip to Legoland here! The pool was fun and the nightly milk and cookies was a treat. The shuttle provided to Legoland was a plus. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast choices were awesome and the women that worked there were so sweet to my daughter. Will surely stay here next... More
