“Econolodge...Look no Further”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Very Clean Rooms, Very Friendly, very easy access to Ocean Beaches and entertainment sites just North of San Diego. Safe parking, great Continental breakfast. On sight laundry room. Close to Catalina Ferry access from Dana Point. Very helpful office staff. Hanna is always available to help.

Room Tip: We liked the first floor near the office, but all rooms are equal.

Very large room, good breakfast with eggs. Very clean. Desk, wifi, only lacked coffeepot in room. Very friendly staff, accommodated our dog. Would definitely stay again. The parking is inside a courtyard so very safe.

Given the fact that it was an econolodge, we did not have high expectations. But we booked it as other Tripadvisor reviewers gave it a good rating. And they were right. The rooms were huge and very clean.

The property owners live on the property and they take care well. We were greeted nicely by the lady at the reception who probably was the property owner. She was nice enough to offer to pen the breakfast room for the night for us to get milk for the kids, as we were checking in at night after a day at Legoland.

Keep in mind that this property is right next to I-5, so is a little noisy. And the beds were not the greatest, found them to be a tad soft. But otherwise, the room was very clean. Had a large open area in front of the beds for the kids to play. The in-room microwave and refrigerator were in good shape.

Overall, this is a great place to stay at if visiting Legoland. We did take out food from a nearby Thai restaurant and that was good as well.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms near the break fast room as those are at the back of the property and away from hig...

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.
