We stayed for a weekend. Very helpful & friendly staff! Valet parking & front desk A+. Clean, comfortable room. Nice desk area with outlets. Beautifully landscaped property, which was festively decorated for Christmas. Pool area is gorgeous. I used the complimentary shuttle which was So nice/convenient! Would definitely return/recommend to others.

I stay here for one night just to check it out. I have to drive 30 miles to my job site. I arrive around 9PM. The signs are pretty good showing directions to self parking, which is $15. It is pretty close to the main entrance. Check in was easy. I am a Platinum member and I used one of...

This is a beautiful hotel with manicured grounds. You can choose your parking: valet or self-park. There is a charge for both. Self-park has an underground garage and outside parking in two areas. Very convenient. There are complementary USA Today in the lobby. This property is close to many things including shopping(Carlsbad Outlet Center), golf(Crossings) and LEGOLAND. The hotel actually...

This hotel is amazing and is right next to Legoland. We stayed here for 3 nights and room service was good and no outside sounds into the room. Got a room with two queen beds and it spacious enough for kids to play. Only complain is that underground parking is very limited and you can park anywhere outside.

Stayed at the Sheraton Carlsbad October 19 -21, 2016. The staff was helpful and polite. Used the shuttle to get around while my husband was in meetings. Short drive to the outlet mall and Carlsbad.

The internet is inconsistent and keeps throwing you out. The business center printer didn't work. The drink dispensing machine on our floor didn't work. We had to replace the mini fridge. The front desk staff were unfriendly and couldn't care less about our problems. Room cleaning wasn't done until we called for it and essential supplies were not provided. Despite...

Were a little surprised to find the hotel several miles inland from the coast. Photos show images looking over the ocean, but you have to be fairly high up to see it.

It's connected to Legoland with own private entrance so perfect if you have young children that may need a nap during the day. Accommodations were nice as it had a heated pool, golf course and private parking. Rooms were spacious, comfy and nice to have a mini-fridge in room.
