We stayed here for our first night after landing in San Diego for a business trip, but were first doing a few days of outlet mall shopping. Our first stop after the airport car rental pick-up was the Carlsbad Premium Outlets and this was a good place to stop before heading out for the one near Palm Springs. The hotel is pretty much on the other side of Interstate 5 from the mall, although we went into town for supper prior to checking in.
The staff were very friendly, and the hotel décor is very nice – almost a Norman Rockwell feel to it. If this is an older property, they sure have done a great job of taking care of it. The room was very clean and comfortable, although where we were, the complimentary room Wi-Fi was so weak as to be usable – no problem in the lobby. We didn’t experience any issues with outside noise, but then, changing three times zones will do that to you.
Despite the cool air in the evening, the outdoor Jacuzzi was kept hot, which made for a refreshing and relaxing dip. The complimentary hot breakfast buffet was also quite good.
The hotel certainly lived up to the good ratings I read, but I likely would try another property if I return to Carlsbad simply for the sake of variety, loyalty points and perhaps a more competitive Government Rate.
