This is a great hotel. The staff are friendly, caring, and work hard. They are definitely renovating this place and it looks great! The texting system is also a plus. Very clean and quiet. I would definitely recommend this place. It's affordable and just what you need. No sense in paying a high price for a Hilton when you won't... More

This hotel is right off the Freeway so it was super close to where we needed to be. We had a very nice large clean room. We requested the top floor in the back and it was nice and quite. The parking can get crowded and the spaces are small. Mostly for compacts. They have a nice breakfast area but... More

Hotel was recommended for daughters soccer tourney in Carlsbad. Checked other local hotels and all were double the price so took the leap. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" staff was courteous, however hotel was dated and in need of refresh. On the bright side, if you're only in need of room for sleep at cheap... More

We were lucky to find a reservation at the last minute when an airbnb didn't turn out well. On the phone, we were told there was a room for one night, but when we arrived in late afternoon, we were told we could stay 2 nights!

Check-in was a huge problem. Desk clerk was excruciatingly slow with the guests in front of me and did not call for help. I waited 20 minutes until another employee came in from the office and started helping after he saw how many people were waiting. Once we got things going, the rest of the registration wasn't bad.
