“Very nice family hotel”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

I have rated as 5 based on my expectations. We have been travelling with our 11 months old son. So basically full equipped kitchen was my priority. That's why we have choosen Homewood Suites. We stayed at room 142 which is very close to reception, car parking, breakfast area. So very convenient.
The rooms are exactly the same that was shown in Hilton internet site. So it is a very big plus. It is a very functional room with a kitchen and a living room. We really liked the lights with sensors, very clever.
The housekeeping service was excellent, each day, we found the room and kitchen cleaned in detail.
So, if travelling with kids, very good place to stay.
24 hour complimentary coffee and breakfast was also a very big plus. The breakfast was not the best I had but, not bad at all.

We stayed at this hotel for 2.5 weeks between moves. I can't say enough great things. They made our transition between moves so comfortable and homey. The staff goes to great length to accommodate you. House cleaning was wonderful and constantly cleaning. A nice touch is a good breakfast in AM and a glass of wine at the end of the day before dinner. All of that is complimentary. We were so happy we will be staying in Homewood suites in the future!

The pool area is rather conjested although they did have a nice covered area with a few chairs near a ping pong table. If you want to enjoy some sun - this courtyard isn't going to offer much. The pool was closed for routine maintenance during my visit so I can't speak to how that would have been. There were a lot of families staying at this hotel so be aware of that if you were looking for a quiet spot to relax. I had very little conversation with the staff at this location, they just weren't as outgoing to be hospitable like most Hilton locations. I had an issue when I checked out with some items I left behind and had very little assistance in locating the items until 4 days later when I gave up and contacted the manager directly. He did his best to locate the items but none were recovered. It was a costly mistake on my part.

Homewood Suites are the best value....especially when you get to stay for free!! We used 30,000 Hilton HHonors points per night for a two night stay at this hotel. A lot of points, but worth it! For our family of 5, the set up of a Homewood Suite is perfect; two queen beds in the bedroom, and a pullout couch for our teenage son in the living room. The full kitchen is an added bonus, although we didn't even take advantage of it this stay. As expected from a Homewood Suites, the breakfasts are among the best of any complimentary breakfast buffet, with so many choices and everything tastes "real"! Unfortunately, we stayed Saturday and Sunday, the two nights that they don't have complimentary evening meals, but from past experiences, they are always delicious too.

The pool was heated but it was so chilly during our stay we didn't use it. There was a ping pong table adjacent to the pool, which the kids did use. The bedding was extremely comfortable and the bathroom sink has storage cubbies under it, which comes in very handy as a place to store toiletries and cosmetics.

Location was excellent for our needs. We stayed here while visiting Legoland California, and were only minutes away. Very nice, safe area. Would definitely stay again if we ever needed to be in Carlsbad!!

The hotel was completely booked but Ian (Sales Manager) and the staff were very accomodating. We were a party of 10 for a golf weekend staying at the Homewood Suites. We called numerous times prior to our stay asking if they had barbeques, private game room, etc. and Ian made sure our requests were met. Even on Ian's evening off he came in the hotel to make sure our stay was pleasant and if we needed anything else.
We are already planning our next event which includes staying at this Homewood Suites. I highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The rooms were fantastic! They had a full kitchen included.

We stayed here for the weekend and just had a wonderful time! This is a great place to stay for families. The convenience of the full kitchen, two televisions, separate rooms and free breakfasts worked great for us. I highly recommend it. It is right around the corner from Legoland also. The pool was heated and we got to enjoy that in October! They even had some balls and noodles for the kids to play with in the pool area. They also have two grills if you want to bbq.
