This is our 4th stay at this Comfort Inn and I cannot rave enough about the friendly staff, especially Mike, is and how convenient the access to the freeway and all of the beaches between Oceanside to the Mexican border. The room, cleanliness, features, and the check-in to check-out have been consistent and reliable. The bed and the room layout is also comfortable and quiet with other suites or freeway traffic. The hotel is located near a long time breakfast place-family run -The Pie Shoppe, several gasoline stations nearby and a Vons market nearby as well. A short drive towards the beach brings you to the cliffs of Carlsbad and several restaurants of high quality. Thank you for another great stay!

We were pleasantly surprised with this place. Clean and came with a decent breakfast. Our first choices for this area were booked so we decided to take a chance and it turned out well . A bit pricey for this chain but the staff was great. Honorable mention goes to Michael who put up with us arriving late to breakfast. Overall a nice stay.

Family suite was spacious and comfortable, update was recent but okay in quality. Was a bit overpriced for location 3 miles away from Legoland. I think near I think walking distance. Staff was good, we had a problem with housekeeping they offered a discount upon checkout.

i Booked 5 rooms on this hotel. Such a lovelly and clean hotel. the staff in the front desk are excellent very friendly and helpful people. As far as the freeway noise OK i hear people complaining about it on the review i got a nice clean room next to the freeway i hardly hear it as long you had the window close then it wont be a problem. I love the continental breakfast all my cousin and friends like this hotel alot most definitely will stay here again around december .

Room Tip: no need to choose all rooms are the same unless u wana stay in the 1st 2nd or 3rd floor

After driving from Northern California to Southern California...we (I) was pretty tired. We came to pick up my girlfriend's son from UCSD. This is our fourth visit to this hotel!!! From the time we got out of our car, we saw the gardner watering the beautiful flowers...nice potted flowers by the elevators. The staff is very friendly!!! Usually we got a room with 2 queens, but this time we were by ourselves, so had a room with a king bed. We had room 308...and after 500 miles behind the wheel...it was a relief to relax in such a nice room. My thanks to Mike and staff at Comfort Inn Near LegoLand.

Room Tip: Rooms near the rear will probably be more quiet. The hotel is convenient

We stayed here for a couple of nights over a weekend. The best thing about this hotel is that it is one exit north of Legoland, so it takes only 10 minutes to get there. The hotel is clean, and offers an average continental breakfast.

The hotel itself is next to I-5 and outside the rooms is pretty noisy. However, inside the room you couldn't hear the outside noise (we did have a room which was farthest from the highway on first floow). The room we had was a two-double bed one, and it was ok for a comfort inn. The beds were clean, but the linen showed age (we noticed a couple of spots etc.). The room had a decent fridge and a microwave (typical). The restroom was clean, and I would say the room was a good size so as not to feel too cramped up with two beds.

The lady helping out at the breakfast seemed quite efficient and polite. The food (coffee/juice/bread/bagels/cream cheese/pastries/tea/eggs) was stocked well.

Check-in was efficient, although the guy manning the desk at night seemed "tired" and "sad." The day person was friendlier.

There is free parking.

There was a pool outside. The morning I went there, it was overcast so didn't use the pool. However, it really is literally on the highway so if you like watching big-rigs go by while you take a dip, sure it could be fun. No spa or heated pool though (makes sense, its supposed to always sunny and warm around this area!)

Overall, I would give this hotel an average rating, but because its close to legoland, and for a comfort inn it was clean, I would say its very good.

I did feel that the hotel was expensive for what you get, but then again other hotels in the area are similarly priced or more expensive.

Room Tip: Get one away from i-5 if you can.
