We were originally planning on staying at the Legoland Hotel for our weekend trip, but the price for two rooms there was going to be a little more than our budget would allow. The TownePlace was fantastic. It was very convenient (only about 8 minutes to LegoLand) and close to delicious local restaurants (Pizza Port) as well. The service was... More

Our hotel stay was brief; therefore, I cannot comment too much regarding the pool, breakfast, etc. as we were in and out of there. Our sole purpose for coming to the area was to scatter my mother's ashes and to visit with family. We stayed in the two bedroom suite, in order to fit our family of five. We spent... More

We found this property on Trip Advisor. Over the years, we have shied away from other mid-range properties by Marriott, such as the Fairfield Inn and Courtyard by Marriott. We found them noisy-you can hear the neighbors and the doors slammed all through the night as guests came in. Several Courtyards were infested with ants. This time, our car had... More

My husband and I dislike staying in motels, hotels, or bed and breakfasts. We like to have our own stuff and eat our own (healthful) cooking. For that, we live and travel in our motorhome and are quite content. Enter the need for some repairs and upgrades requiring us to vacate our home on wheels for five nights... Yikes! But... More

Due to water damage, my family and I were not able to stay at our home. The insurance company sent us to the TownePlace Suites in Vista, and it became our home away from home. I have to say that the staff was very courteous and customer service driven. They always addressed us by our name and even helped me... More

I have been here on many different occasions for business, staying weeks at a time and I have had nothing but amazing customer service. The employees go above and beyond to make sure the guests are as happy as they can be. Brittany and Tiffany, who work the front desk, accommodate every need that I need. They always made sure...

Booked this hotel for a Lego Land vacation for the family. During the entire stay it was loud with running up and down the hallways until 1-2 am. I spoke with the front desk on two separate occasions and nothing change for the three nights we were there.

Staff was very nice, attentive and helpful. Initial room did not meet expectations, staff quickly moved to an excellent room. Had issues with rental car and late check out was denied. My family was asked to leave room and stay in lobby with all our luggage. It was uncomfortable for my wife and 5 kids and embarrassing. I have stayed... More

Stayed here one night for a wedding around the area. Check-in was easy. Hotel was quiet, room was clean. Only downside was that the hotel smelled like a dirty dog. It was especially rank in the elevator. I tried to hold my breath the entire ride. Easy parking as the hotel shares a parking lot with a strip mall. Breakfast... More

Thank you for sharing your experience at TownePlace San Diego Carlsbad/Vista. Please accept our sincere apologies regarding the smell in the elevator. The weather in the area during the weekend of your stay was unusually rainy and humid. This may have added to the smell you were referring to. I am pleased to hear that you had a positive check-in...
