I stayed here last weekend and this hotel was fantastic. The rooms were beautiful, very clean and well put together. The hotel grounds was well kept and the lobby was wonderful. The front desk agents were very nice, very hospitable, and very willing to answer any and all questions. We used the shuttle only once, but it worked out perfectly. I would recommend this hotel to ANYONE I know going into the carlsbad area. Thank you again for such a wonderful stay!! :)

Room Tip: Anything near 210-220 are probably really nice.

Stayed with my 2 boys, 8 and 5. Arrived at hotel at 11am and was able to do an early check in. With in 10 minutes we were on the free shuttle to Legoland. Arrived Back at hotel around 630, with plenty of time for free happy hour dinner. My kids had hot dogs and I had a salad. They were also having a beer tasting, along with free wine and tap beer. Woke up to a wonderful breakfast!! Had a great stay and can't wait for a reason to return.

I've always been a fan of the Homewood Suites chain of hotels, and this one was no exception.The hotel was spotless and the staff were super helpful. It's very close to LegoLand (10-15 minutes) and not far from SeaWorld (about a half hour). There's free parking and -- most most importantly for families -- free hot breakfast buffet each morning with the works (eggs, waffles, cereal, muffins etc.). There's also a light dinner served Mon-Thurs, but we never made it back in time to try it out.

Few things to note: Outdoor pool is a little on the small side, but fine to take a little dip at the end of the day, or use the hot tub. I had one complaint: The a/c worked funny in our room -- freezing one minute, warm the next. I adjusted the vents and that helped a little. But overall, a great stay and a good value for the area.

Room Tip: This particular hotel is very large, so if you plan on trekking back and forth between the dining ro...

This was a terrific place to stay for Legoland -- less than five minutes' drive from the amusement park. We were a little surprised in looking for hotels in the Carlsbad area at how high prices were, so settled on this one because it offered a suite. Upon check-in, we were pleased to learn that the price of our room included both breakfast (which they offer seven days a week) and dinner (which they offer Monday through Thursday). The breakfast was one of the best of these sorts of hotel offerings, with both hot (scrambled eggs, waffles, pancakes, ham, bacon, potatoes, french toast) and cold (fruit, yogurt, cereal, etc.) food. The dinner was simpler, with bratwurst, fries, sauerkraut and a modest salad bar (lettuce and a few fixings) on the night we were there.

The room itself was terrific, with a spacious bedroom with two double beds, as well as a separate living room and kitchen. The kitchen had everything except an oven. The bathroom had a sink area, as well as a separate room for the toilet and combination shower/bath. Everything was clean and in good condition. The thermostat was easy to use, and the A/C worked well. The room was a little noisy, especially from the upstairs neighbors (from dragging chairs on the floor and footfalls) and because of fairly thin walls, but between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m., the place was pretty quiet.

All in all, a great place to stay for a family trip to Legoland.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from Palomar Airport Road to avoid traffic noise.

This is a new hotel and we like it a lot. It’s a suite so the bedroom is separate from the living area. It offers the standard Homewood Suite amenities and services, which is high quality. It has a free shuttle to Legoland so you don’t need to drive there and save $15 parking. You do need to sign up for the shuttle since seats are limited. If you sign up late, and early time slots were full, then you just need to wait for the later shuttle. It’s close to Legoland and Carlsbad shopping and restaurants, very convenient. Complimentary breakfast was good. It also offers light dinner Monday to Thursday evening. They post the dinner menu on the fridge so you know what they’re serving and plan your dinner accordingly. They also have laundry, free soup provided for the coin operated washer & dryer. We love the hotel and would come back again.

I had to stay at this property while I was attending a training. Let me tell you, from someone who stays in hotels quite often, this was possibly the BEST hotel I have ever stayed at! Aside from the rooms being extremely spacious and clean, the staff was unbelievably friendly, helpful, accommodating and attentive to guests needs! I must have been there during an extremely busy time because breakfast and dinner were always busy but they never ran out of food and the staff seemed extremely calm and well prepared. I give this property two thumbs up and feel they should definitely get the credit they deserve. GREAT JOB!!!!!!
