This was a 3/2 stay prior to a Los Cabos cruise with family. First of all, Carlsbad, Ca is beautiful!. The Sheraton Resort sits on top of a hill which overlooks Carlsbad coastline. The grounds were kept immaculate, the resort itself is stunning from all angles. All employees were professional and courteous including, check-in, car valet and the restaurant staff....

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed April 3, 2017

We stayed here as a family of four while we visited Legoland and the Carlsbad and Oceanside area. Its proximity to Legoland can't be overlooked, but this hotel is a destination in its own right. While we were staying there, someone told me the hotel was 9 years old. If that is true, then the maintenance has been fantastic. It...

With many options in the area, I'm so happy we chose the Sheraton Carlsbad. It's a beautiful hotel with many amenities, but what sold us was the convenience to Legoland. And a big thanks to Alex (what a nice guy!) for the shuttle ride to the entrance. We stayed in bldg #2, top floor, with a ocean view. And although...

Rooms are spacious and clean. The location of the hotel was good. Check-in was a bit of a problem with parking and unloading. Location to room parking was a problem too. The cost for parking is unreasonable $12/day plus a $16/day resort fee. The customers using the restaurant on-site and visiting guest park for free!

We loved it here, the location was perfect for Legoland!! The cove is an enclosed pool area with tons of games and cheap eats (kids meals $4). Happy hour at 20/20, and cool kids activities . It also has a secret entrance for the park, it's an awesome place!

The hotel tick all the boxes for a business meeting and conference venue. The rooms are comfortable with a decent size desk. The complementary WiFi in the rooms is sufficient for business internet requirements. The conference rooms are well ventilated and sound proofed.

This resort is located right next to Legoworld but we did not visit this park. The resort is located 2,7km from the beach and it is all downhill to the water front, but a steep climb the way back. The staff was very friendly and the service was as expected from Sheraton: excellent. The room was spacious and the beds...

Was there for a conference. Facility was perfect. Great views. Rooms were very nicely furnished and were quit. No issues. Was about $100 cab ride from airport to this facility. Workout facility was much better than most hotels. Nice pool.

Everything about this resort was awesome. I loved the scenery, I loved the room, the staff was friendly, the bed was extremely comfortable. it was our first stay here and it was so worth it. I would definitely recommend. the private entrance to LEGOLAND was a plus. the on site restaurant was ok. besides that, this was a great stay.
