We found ourselves in Carlsbad at a hotel that was not living up to our expectations (the ability to sleep comfortably all night), so we needed to move that day! We found the West Inn & Suites rated number 1 on Trip Advisor and read the reviews; it sounded like just the place. Finally, all of our expectations were met! Nice, clean, comfortable rooms, and a very helpful staff. Even though the hotel had lots a families with children, due to the proximity of Legoland, the rooms were quiet and the hallway noise unobtrusive. The breakfast was very good, with a nice variety over the two mornings we were there. Bistro West, on the property, is excellent, and it's so nice that you can just walk over there, as parking gets a little crowded at night with the 2 restaurants on site. We would definitely stay again!
