Extended Stay America - San Diego - Carlsbad Village by the Sea
Ranked #33 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I was on a short trip to San Diego and the Los Angeles area. I spent one night at the Carlsbad Extended Stay America while there. Properties in this chain often provide a good stay at a reasonable price either for a short or extended stay. The specific motel in Carlsbad is excellent even by the standards of the chain. The staff strives to make the traveller feel at home and they succeed. The condition, layout and space of the rooms also makes the visitor feel at home while on the road.

I had an excellent experience staying here. The front desk staff is very pleasant and helpful, the room was spacious and very clean and everything seemed quite new. Wifi worked great and was free. Having a full kitchenette is a great convenience and the hotel is within walking distance of shopping and whatever you might need. It is set in a nice residential area but only a few blocks from the exit to the highway. Grab and go breakfast has assorted fruit, granola bars, and muffins, as well as pretty good coffee. Probably the best deal you could ask for, a great value.

I was working in the San Diego area for couple months and stayed at Extended Stay America. The hotel is clean, the staff is knowledgeable, helpful and handled my requests promptly. I felt safe and comfortable in the room and was this made my stay easier and more pleasant. The staff is warm and friendly, specially front deck personnel, Nicole would always ask my questions or resolve any issues (that were small and few in number). I would recommend anyone to stay here.

First time @ an extended stay, comfortable, and great price, location was great, beach was walking distance! Staff was always busy, Nataly was very helpful at check in. Rooms were fresh, especially pool side, hallways smelt a bit like cigarettes, but given its a hotel it didn't bother us much.
Nice stay!

Room Tip: Request pool side

I think it falls between poor and average, but we're spoiled after mostly staying at Hyatt Houses. We booked via ESA's website based on the facts that we'd be getting a suite and that they have breakfast.

Turns out that they don't have suites (so we all had to stay in one room), and the 'breakfast' is really just coffee and a grab-your-own spunkmeyer muffin/Quaker granola bar. More of a breakfast snack. Due to the former issue, they were nice enough to give us a bit of a discount.

These lower end chains have a lot of smokers and our non-smoking room still smelled faintly of febreze on top of cigarette smoke. The odor was a bit stronger in the hallways.

The room was clean, but it's true: no shampoo, no hair dryer, no paper towels. The mattress is kind of hard, but we're used to that and we still slept fine. The kitchenette does not have a disposal, and instead of a little container of dish soap, they just give a small packet of it.

This place was ok for a one night stay, not worth more than 60-70 bucks, IMO.

Location is great - easy walks to restaurants, shops, train station and beaches. It was nice to have lots of light in different areas of the suite. Enjoyed the firm bed. Staff were always busy but friendly and helpful. Good value for the money.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms would probably be quiter.

Very good valu and great room with nice kitchen. The pool was very clean and had lovely loungers for sunbathing. Groceries shopping close by and only a short walk to the beach.
We will definitely be back
