We stayed here recently with a group of five adults and six children. The hotel is extremely child friendly, yet everything is still very well maintained and nice looking. When we were there, there were many children at the hotel and we marveled at how you don't hear any noise while in your hotel room. The staff is so nice and accommodating.
The hotel is not on the beach, but I believe they offer shuttle service and you can borrow anything you'd need for a day on the beach. There is shuttle service to Legoland. The pool area is great and, with outlet shopping nearby, there is something for everyone to do. The free parking is a major plus.
The hotel welcomes dogs and had a cute sign welcoming canine arrivals for the day.
Breakfast is okay, basic buffet food, but the milk and cookies every night was a real treat.
We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The hotel accepts dogs, so if you have any allergies, I'd let them know when you are booking.

Five minutes into arriving here, it is obvious where the 5 star reviews come from ! Even though it's not a huge hotel, I am still amazed when front desk staff can call you by name on a regular basis. We had a 2 King Suite and it was great - Perfect for us and 2 kids as well as a living space to watch separate TVs - Everyone in the hotel was so nice - The hotel is at the end of the street so very little traffic, but easy access to everything you need on Avenida Encinas, Paseo Del Norte and Interstate 5 - Awesome pool and the biggest hot tub I have ever seen - We didn't get a chance to try the 2 attached restaurants, but everyone we talked to raved about them - There is no doubt that anytime we are near Carlsbad or SD again, the West will be our landing point!

Room Tip: Having a room on the 1st floor really cut down on elevator and time to the pool and spa

This was a great stay. The staff is awesome so friendly. we arrived early and we were given a room right away. The only thing we didn't like was that they didn't use real eggs for breakfast everything else was great. The fresh strawberries!!

Stayed here for five nights after finding a deal on Sniqueaway. We all LOVED it. The breakfasts were awesome, the beach was very close (though don't expect to enjoy any great views - there are none because it's not on the beach), the pool was perfect, they have free books you can borrow and read if you want, they have a closet full of body boards and beach stuff you can borrow, they have movies you can borrow - they have everything we wanted or needed. There was plenty of stuff nearby for food and activities (and Lego is indeed very close but we resisted the urge to spend a fortune to get in there). Overall, we just really had a great time and have great memories of the place. Don't bother looking anywhere else - you can't go wrong here - highly recommended!
