My family stayed at the West Inn & Suites November 1st through the 4th. Everything was wonderful! Our room was up to date, extremely clean and comfortable. My kids loved the pool and spa. (and the nightly warm cookies and milk!) The grounds of the hotel were immaculate. Great breakfast as well. We would definitely stay there again.

everything you read about on trip advisor is true! i have never experienced such a high level of hotel hospitality. the sheets and bed are unbelievable and the breakfast buffet is ample with something for everyone. the staff is gracious and top notch. we came to west inn from los angeles on the amtrak. it was such fun to travel by train. the hotel shuttle picked us up at oceanside. we used the shuttle a lot and it was great to not worry about a car or parking. we loved this place and were sorry we had to leave.

Our friends who live in Carlsbad recommended West Inns and Suites because of its great location and great restaurant that is part of the hotel (Bistro West). They had not stayed there but they said it was new and looked nice. Wow, what a pleasant surprise we had! The room was a bit less expensive than most hotels in the area and the ambience, service, and quality of the rooms was better than any hotel I have stayed for the money, including top names like Bellagio, Hilton, Marriott, etc. These other hotels have a lot to learn from West Inns....The staff was always friendly and treated us like we owned the place. The hotel is set up more like a large house, complete with library, computer room, dining area, and living area with games, fireplace and kitchen. The cookies and milk at 8 PM made my kids day. The full buffet breakfast was great and their fresh coffee beat Starbucks. The room was great. The beds were gigantic, and soooo comfortable. The towels were the softest I have ever felt. I kept looking for something to criticize, but I kept finding more thing to rave about, like the ample supply of baby pampers by the pool, the underground free parking garage, and their great bistro with great food. I could go on and on but I'm running out of room. Don't let the train tracks and smoke stack fool you. You'll never know they are there.........I can't wait to return................Best hotel ever.....Keep it up............

After a day at LegoLand with 3 little kids, this place was just the perfect place to unwind. The restaurant was FANTASTIC ( a real restaurant, not a hotel food-service one)--try the homemade veggie burger. After dinner, the kids jumped into the pool and swam until 10pm and then, thank goodness, they were tired and went promptly to sleep, and my husband and I were able to watch a little TV in the separate living room space without disturbing them. Rooms are big with plenty of space for crazy hyper kids to run around. Nobody complained about our noise either, so I'm assuming that the walls are not paper thin. THE ONLY drawback is that it's right next to the Freeway so if you are in the pool you can hear the semi-trucks chugging by.
To the manager and staff of this hotel: You are doing an excellent job. We had a wonderful time and we will return often.

We have 3 kids all under 10 years old, so having a close hotel to Legoland was a must. When we arrived, we were so amazed at the sizes of the bed, that we didn't realize how big the room really was. It also had a luxurious big bathroom FULL of towels. It wasn't the obvious things that made me give this hotel a great rating, it was all the small things. Like the lil' swimmer's pampers over by the heated pool, the extra outside towels by the pool, water bottles in our room's frig, the cookie nites that they served, the small snack shop, great buffet breakfast. But WAIT, this beats it all,..... walking over to the a small table by the window, there was a plant. Looking closer it was a real Orchid flower pot with a light fragance. "OMGosh!!!! IT'S REAL!"
On the last day we found out there was a train track on the street behind the hotel, we never even knew the trains were running the entire time we were there.
-- It's only 5 minutes away from Legoland, that's with 2 red lights.
We all loved it, we'll never stay any where else in San Diego!
