“Nice Assortment of outlets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

The location is very convenient off the 5. Good selection of shops and they run sales frequently. Attractive mall and lots of neat food shops too.

“Good deals if you look closely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

I have been going to Carlsbad for years and this was the first year I knew there is an outlet mall there. Maybe my wife knew I would buy a lot of "stuff".

We did buy a good amount. I am a large guy and it is nice to be able to find XXL in more than one store. It was really convenient to our hotel and the highway.

Food selections were pretty good also.

“Surprised to be disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Mde a special effort to check out this outlet. Sadly the stores the I visited all had a very limited selection. I was hoping due to the location that there would be some good selection, but it was not to be.

I wanted to and was ready to buy but found only 4 pairs of underwear that I left with. Hardly worth it. I was here years ago and it was far better. In fact I saw some of the same things at Ross, and less expensive.

“no parking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

This was a nice outlet center but we had a very hard time finding parking. It was PACKED with people driving around in circles looking for a place to park.
