“Needs work”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

La Quintas are good because they are dog friendly. However, this property is just old and in need of a total facelift. For example, the toilets are so low to the floor that they are very difficult to get up and down. The place is drab and needs a different color scheme. La Quintas seem to be a hit or miss situation. They are new and modern or they are old and in need of rebuilding. This is being worked on but in talking to the staff, it is not going to be enough. By the way, they do not seem to care the place is in disarray. They still charge higher prices.

We have stayed at this hotel before because it was economical and dog friendly. Our most recent stay was disappointing. 1. We had asked for a first - floor room when reserving. We got a second - floor suite, and when we said we were unhappy, the desk clerk got a little snippy. The suite was spacious; it was nice to have a bedroom away from the loud AC in the living room. Breakfast was a crowded carb fest. Blah! The hotel is showing it's age. Worst of all, this was a high season weekend... $188 a night, senior rate.

We've stayed at La Quinta Hotels in Tehachapi and Paso Robles, CA and were very pleased both times. La Quinta Carlsbad is the exact opposite.Arriving after 3 PM we were informed that the room was not ready and we were asked to wait another hour. We returned after an hour to find our room was right next to the pet relief area making it impossible to open the room's window. We asked to be assigned to another room and it was done. Assuring us the new room was ready, we walked into a mess of beds unmade and over-flowing trash cans. We were asked to wait another hour for the room to be prepared. We declinced, canceled our 3 day reservation and found another hotel.

Good location, close to Legoland and the beach. Good value for the $$. They were under construction this last visit which made the visit a little less great, the pool was closed and breakfast room cramped and not as much variety as we've seen in the past. Hopefully this will change once construction is done. Rooms are clean and updated, beds are comfortable.

Very loud freeway noise. No nice grounds area, just parking lot and cement pool. Very small rooms, only one uncomfortable chair and if someone was sitting you couldn't walk past to get to the bathroom. More like a cheap motel. Other La Quintas I've stayed at had beautiful grounds and pool area, spacious rooms and inside hall ways.

Stayed at this hotel a few times. It is always clean and the staff is very nice. Love that the location is close to the beach! This La Quinta is one of the best that I have been to in the chain. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Carlsbad.
