“Second Time Around and Was Not Disappointed !”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Carlsbad earlier this year and could not say enough about it. My second stay did not disappoint: the desk staff are courteous and friendly, the room was spotless, the beds comfortable beyond belief; despite the hotel's proximity to the airport, the room was quiet. Free wireless is a great bonus ! The breakfast is very good and the staff who provide it are very friendly and obliging. I consider this to be a real "find" !

Like most Hamptons, this hotel is pretty clean and reliable. You can count on the mire modern and clean bedding and bathrooms. Way more comfortable than other grungier motels. The breakfast is decent and service is average. Good for families.

1) Looked at several internet sites, and we got our best rate at bookit.com. It could've just been the luck of the draw at that point in time, but check this site when booking.

2) Room 345 is a really large, spacious room as it's a handicap accessible room. So ask if it's available. It has a walk-in shower (the shower head didn't work, but the hand-held shower worked) and very large bathroom.

3) Breakfast comes with the price, which is great! Even the coffee is not bad, and there is fresh fruit and all kinds of goodies.

4) Just a suggestion for the Hampton Inn folks: you need better graphic design/interior design at your inn. It's pretty out-of-date (especially your room key cards -- so ugly!). You should at least keep up with the Marriott down the way.

We spent 3 nights at the hotel and it was very nice. Our main goal was to visit Legoland--which is about 3 miles away. The hotel is right across the street from the Palomar airport. The rooms are very well insulated since we didn't hear any airplane noises--also helps with all the kid noises!

The hotel was well kept--it helps that the hotel is only a year old. No complaints about the room--nice to have a coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator included. The 24 hour beverage service is a great extra that you find in all the Hampton Inns.

Breakfast is fine--the hot options changed daily. They do a good job considering how small the kitchen is. Only complaint is that the scrambled eggs is most likely from a powder mix--it had that texture you find in institiution scramble eggs like in schools and the military. Not that big of an issue since there were other options available.

The staff overall was fine--I think they could have been a little more knowledgeable about the area events. I had asked about if the strawberry fields were open to the public for picking and the staff didn't have any idea.

The price we paid for the room was on the high side--due to the summer season and the premium being close to legoland.

Overall a nice hotel in the modest price range.

I'm not sure of the age of this hotel, but it could have been brand new for all I know. Very clean. New appearing white sheets on very comfortable beds. Halls, carpet, baths, lobby are all spotless. It makes for a peacefull nights sleep.

Breakfast buffet had more than average, and had very nice tables and chairs. Waffles, biscuits and gravy, eggs, plus all of the normal bread/roll/oatmeal packs.

It is across street from medium sized airport, but we did not hear it at all.

Highly recommend.

Our family was in Carlsbad to visit family and decided to stay here. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable. I am pretty sure the place was almost full but we heard very little noise. We had the breakfast which is included and it was good. The room was a bit crowded and the people working there were having a bit of a hard time keeping up but there was plenty to choose from. They had eggs, bacon, potatotoes, cold cereal, waffles, yogurt, and fruit among other things.
We also enjoyed meeting Arthur at the front desk!
