This hotel is well run.
The owner was willing to help us and made it a positive experience.
It has a laundry room. breakfast is simple and fine.
To curb the traffic noise we ran the fan, that worked as highway is busy,

Room Tip: The mexican restaurant at the Carlsbad Inn a few minutes away was great.

I booked this property because of its proximity to LEGOLAND. It is only one exit North and about a 10 minute drive to the park. We arrived a little early and they had rooms available and allowed us to check in. The room was very large and the rooms looked like that had been through some recent remodeling. Within a few minutes there was a knock on the door and a hotel employee was coming by with a brand new microwave. Next thing I know, the manager/owner showed up. She found that a breaker had been tripped, fixed it and wished us a pleasant stay. The next morning another manager/owner showed up at the breakfast buffet to clean up and make sure all the food, utensils and beverages were in order. Overall, I was very impressed with the care and concern the management/ownership had for there guests. The only draw back to this hotel is its proximity to the freeway. Great place to stay if your Carlsbad.

Room Tip: This hotel is very close to the freeway. I would request rooms on the east side of the property.

Great newer renovated room for a really good price. Was a ten minute walk to Pizza Port which is why we stayed here. They even let me check out an hour later with no problems. I would definitely go back.

We needed a place to stay close to Legoland, CA. We picked this based on the photos on their website and reasonable rates. Property was clean, staff was friendly. Rooms were OK.

The breakfast area was too small. The choices were very limited and the refills were not done promptly.

Overall ok, since our main goal was a location close to Legoland.

The initial architecture of this facility suggests nothing fabulous, but the owners have exceeded every reasonable expectation to make it as nice as possible. The rooms are richly appointed for a hotel of this level: designer carpet, comfortable bedding, tan-painted walls with framed artwork, and even crown moulding. I would have appreciated a pillow top mattress, but it was still supportive. I was also pleased by the wall-mounted flat screen TV and generously-sized, in-room fridge. Even the outdoor walkways have been appointed with tile, while the seemingly outdated block exterior has been renewed with some type of resurfacing or coating.

The service of the employees I encountered was friendly and welcoming. Plus, the general upkeep of the hotel is rather meticulous. This carries over to the breakfast room, which is relatively small but nicely organized. Also, I appreciated the expanded continental breakfast, which included diy waffles, a choice of four cereals, hard-boiled eggs, toast, and an assortment of cold and hot drinks from two beverage machines (the tropical juice was delicious). However, I do wish they offered peanut butter as a condiment. Nevertheless, this marked a noticeable improvement over the neighboring Rodeway Inn's continental breakfast offering of only pastries and instant drink packets, where I once stayed with my family.

The only misgiving of this Econo Lodge is its location along the freeway. Highway noise is audible within the room (although I slept well since I wear earplugs when with the kids anyhow). Also, there are few choices to dine within walking distance. However, without even having to use the freeway, we drove five minutes north, where we found an Olive Garden and Souplantation.

Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice if you are looking for an affordable stay near Legoland.
