“Okay Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Stayed last weekend 9/14 to 9/16 due to a wedding nearby. Because I have my dog with me (20 lbs terrier) I felt this place offer cheap price for the room + no pet fee. The room is a bit outdated but clean. Bed is comfortable and bathroom is clean. What more can you ask for such a cheap price compared to others in the area especially Carlsbad. Although the room is small and carpet is worn out we managed plus were only there to sleep and shower. The airconditioner is really bad needs cleaning and it's noise is unbearable at least every half hour. I can hear footsteps from above and the next door bathroom running when they start early. I did not get enough sleep staying here so it is not a relaxing place to stay. If you don't have a pet with you do not stay here. but if you're only stopping for the night then maybe. They offer continental breakfast, cereals, bagel, toast bread, egg, yogurt, apple, and waffle. Enough to fill you in the morning.

Room Tip: Our room no. is 154 with two double bed right next to parking lot and away from the noise of freeway

Although we love the Carlsbad area, and the location of this La Quinta, we feel the rooms really need refreshing. The bed looked rather sad and run down. The drapery needs replacing. Room seemed clean, but just looks drab and uninviting. Stayed many times at La Quinta in Austin, TX, and rooms were nicer and newer looking. This location has lost a lot of its appeal over the years we have been staying there.......

I was pleasantly surprised with my room for the $$. The bed was soft and very good. The breakfast was typical, but very good. I will definately stay there again when in the area. Bathroom sink area is small for more than 1-2 to get ready at the same time. The air conditioner made a noise, but we just propped up something on it and it stopped making the noise. I am all about having a good bed and the bed was very good.

My family and I went to Legoland. We stayed at La Quinta
It was very nice. Everyone was very friendly.
The rooms were clean. However I did ask for a playpin for my baby... It was a bit dirty. It wasn't used. But the room was very clean and cozy.
Also breakfast was nice waffles, fresh fruit, Danishes, and. Various drinks. Very nice.....not enough high chairs though...
Overall I loved it!!!
Oh yeah the pool a bit too small.

We recently travelled to Carlsbad to go to Legoland for a few days. I chose La Quinta based upon other positive reviews and the price was reasonable. Everything was excellent, but what topped it off was the warmth and friendliness from the hotel staff, especially in the lobby/reception area. For me, customer service is what separates a good hotel from a great hotel and this La Quanta excelled at it. We would definitely stay here again. The rooms were clean and updated and the breakfast was good. The best part of the room, though, was the comfort of the bed. While it was a bit too soft for my wife, I loved it!
