My family of 5 stayed for a week in Carlsbad and so happy we chose this hotel! We had a corner 2 bedroom apartment style room. When you have 3 kids this is a perfect option rather than getting 2 single rooms. Love the feature of having a full kitchen so if you like you can prepare meals. The hotel... More

We were on the second floor in a corner 2-bedroom suite. As we were next to the interior stairs, we were subjected to the noise of running and screaming children throughout the day and early evening hours. (Lesson learned). We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel during the day. We were out and about Carlsbad enjoying the... More

Stayed four nights during a FIRST Lego League tournament at LEGOLAND. Good proximity to the park. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and in good condition. The outdoor space with pool and grills worked very well for the team to hang out together.

Quiet area surrounded by industrial parks. Excellent service from all staff members. We had 6 adults in the two bedroom unit. A little "tight" for 6, especially the area around the pull out sofa bed. Also, the seating around the table was setup for 4 as well as the dishware and silverware. Main criticism was the lack of enough towel... More

I have stayed many times and the place is top notch. Pool area is always clean, the free breakfast is great. Very quiet. Nice friendly staff. Beautiful grounds, well maintained. The rooms are large and have every feature you could ask for. The beds are very comfortable. Rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated.
