Ramada Carlsbad
Ranked #36 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We are a family of 6 from Arizona. We spent 2 nights at the Ramada over Easter weekend. After reading the reviews, I was skeptical about staying there, but I got a good deal when booked with Orbitz. I figured all we needed was a place to sleep and shower since we came to Carlsbad for Legoland.

I was given a bottom floor room (101) which was very close to parking and the pool area (all were clean). We had a 2 bed suite with a sofa sleeper, mini kitchen (no stove). The room was clean, we had plenty of hot water, towels, and even though the space was small it still met our needs perfectly.

The front lobby was clean and the staff was courteous. I was given a parking pass and was advised if we need pool towels then the front desk will provide them. We brought our own. I waited LESS than 5 minutes to check in and out.

The Ramada is close to Legoland, South Carlsbad state beach, places to eat from McDonalds to upscale (Miguels has good food) Carlsbad premium outlets, grocery store (Ralphs) and pharmacy.

I can't complain one bit and neither did my family. Yes, the furnishings may be worn, but who cares if your only there to rest your head and use the restroom. I got what I paid for!

From check in to check out awesome. Our room was big only stayed one night but our next stay will be longer. We stayed on the side facing the freeway and was unsure about noise but we could hardly hear it with the door closed. Door separated the living room area from the sleeping this room was made for a few night stays kitchenette was great. Room was clean we were very comfortable. We did not eat at the breakfast buffet no eggs or sausage.I don't know about other reviewers but I booked with legoland hotel website if that makes a diffence with the room. Good stay thanks Ramada team

Room Tip: I booked room on legoland hotel partners website room was good for a family trip.

This hotel was part of our tripo to California so we had bigger expectations from it. The Breakfast area is simply too small and the rooms are oddly sized with very old appliances. This was the ugliest shower I've ever used, It's like showering in a prisoner camp. Will never go back.

Room Tip: Go to the hotel next door.
