we made a reservation at the West Inn and Suites after reading all the positive reviews here. I am a little concerned with the fact that it is between the 5 fwy and the train tracks. But it seems to be closer to the beach, although I am not sure if the weather will be "beach" weather next week. Then we went on the legoland website and happened upon the new Sheraton that just opened adjacent to Legoland (read something about them having a private entrance into the park (any idea if this is true?). I called and apparently they are still building the 2nd building. Any locals been over that way and had a look at the new hotel? I can't tell from the pictures but it looks like they might have a kids pool/sprinkler area? We are considering booking something at the Sheraton but I'm not sure if we want to deal with the potential construction noise. Ahhh decisions, decisions. I just don't want to be disappointed to hear a train roaring by in the middle of the night at the west inn and suites and could've traded it for a little construction noise during the day at the Sheraton.
what would you suggest? We have 2 boys, ages 6 and 2 who love water... pools and beaches they are happy! We're planning on spending a day at Sea World as well. how long is the drive from Carlsbad to Mission Bay? Should we attempt to get up early to beat traffic or hang back and go after the morning rushhour... what time would be good to leave then... around 10am?
Thanks in advance!
