“Always a Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is a second time we stayed here. My family likes this place. Close to Legoland, Beach and Stores. The property is well kept. Our room is clean. The property is quiet. The hotel staff are very helpful. Breakfast is basic. I would stay here again if ever I'm in the area.

Family trip to LEGOLAND. Clean rooms, great price, super close to LEGOLAND. We were happy. Area immediately surrounding hotel was a little scary, but once we pulled into parking lot it was nice Well kept grounds. Little breakfast area to start your day. Waffles, cereal, juice coffee. Not a ton, but enough to start your day and save some money. If the price is right, we'd stay again . Plenty of other families staying here so nice & quiet and my son had some pool time and met some friends. Also really close drive to the beach.

Room Tip: We were on first floor closer to the entrance, meaning closer to highway and we slept fine. Didn'...

My son and I stayed here for three nights when visiting Legoland- and loved it! The staff/owners are so helpful and sent us to an amazing restaurant for dinner.

I stayed by myself with my son, and always felt safe even though it was right off of the road. The rooms were large, and when we complained of noise above us, they moved us right away. Pool was cute, but too cold to use.


Cons: breakfast room was too cold. Everything else was wonderful!

Our room was in the back on the second floor, just above the pool. We were a bit worried that there would be too much noise from the pool, but since this hotel is not the type to appeal to the "wild single crowd," the noise was not bad at all. A few families with children took advantage of the pool, but they were not loud or obnoxious. My husband enjoyed the breakfast, but since I am on a strict diet due to allergies, I ate in our room. (It was much easier than smelling the delicious smells that I can no longer eat!) The breakfast fare is pretty standard for this price hotel: sweet rolls, fresh fruit, juices, cereals, boiled eggs, and those delicious make-the-yourself Belgian waffles. The room was clean, looked to have been remodeled recently with granite countertops and nice crown molding, which gave it a higher end appearance. It is within walking distance of the beach and the "Coaster" train, which we rode to San Diego to visit Old Town. The Coaster price is just $11 round trip, less for senior citizens! The staff is very cordial and helpful. I absolutely love the beautiful palm trees and other tropical plants in the landscaping. To me, I would much rather stay here and pay less money than staying at a high end hotel. I'd rather have my money to spend on excursions.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear, away from the highway noise.

Green Features: Guests can decide when they want towels and bed linens changed rather than having them done daily. It is cool enough that most of the time we didn't even need the A/C!

We just spent 3 nights and everything worked out great -- no glitches, no problems, no complaints! The property is right next to the freeway, but we were a few rooms in on the top level and it wasn't too much of a distraction. The staff was very helpful and friendly - much appreciated. The breakfast was a nice convenience traveling with kids. Kids were quite happy with Fruit Loops and hot waffles & the tropical juice! The room was clean, nicely decorated. Von's and Rite Aid are close by, almost walking distance. The wifi worked well for us and was another appreciated convenience that was included in the rate.

Room Tip: We were happy having a top floor -- stairs were short climb and close to parking lot for easy unload...

This was only 2.6 miles (1 highway exit)/5 min from LEGOLAND. That was perfect for us. We had the king suite so had plenty of room for my husband, me, and our almost 3 year old. The room was clean including the carpet. My daughter's feet never turned black! I point that out because these days it is noteworthy. Many hotels we've stayed in look good but turn our feet black.

We enjoyed the breakfast. Not the best but better than some. It was what we expected. They serve fruit, waffles, toast, boiled eggs, cold cereals and pastries.

The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 was some minor maintenance issues. When we arrived, the toilet kept cycling every 30-60 seconds. Although they came and fixed it right away, I would have hoped that their housekeeping staff would have noticed and had it fixed before we arrived. That's just an attention to detail thing. As I said, they were very responsive once we pointed it out.

If we ever return to LEGOLAND we would look at staying here again. I would recommend you check it out too.

Green Features: I actually meant to share this with the management before we left and then forgot. They have signs in the rooms saying that if you want to reuse your towels to leave them hanging up. We did that and yet they still changed them out every day.

This is a clean, well maintained hotel that is very affordable. The room was spacious and included a refrigerator and a microwave. Looked like everything in the room had been updated recently. Continental breakfast was included and they had plenty of everything. Location is just east of the 5 freeway. Easy to find and easy to get back on the freeway. Just a few minutes drive from Carlsbad and Legoland. About 1/2 hour from San Diego.

Minor problems included: a non-hdtv tv (lousy pictures). The window air conditioner was noisy.
Major problem: could not get wifi to work!
