This is a very nice hotel - well maintained, clean and comfortable. The one thing that truly stood out were the staff of the hotel. From the front desk staff to the bell hops to the housekeeping staff. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. Of special mention is Shelli, who made us feel right at home when we first stepped in, ensuring we got the right corporate rates and waiting patiently till everything was settled. Also, thank you Natasha for going out of your way to help us with our rental car issue.

Service was truly first class. We will be back.

Resort is very nice. Check in was very nice. They recognized that I was a Starwood member. Staff was very helpful. The pool area was beautiful, nicely heated, very clean and stocked with lots of towels for nice swim.
The rooms were very nice. Luxury linens and very comfortable. Hotel is close to Legoland. We had a private entrance to the park which was very nice. Restaurant was kid friendly. Food was very good considering a hotel restaurant. Service was excellent and varied selection of choices. Lobby store sold fresh donuts, muffins, coffee. etc.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool is nice also the middle garden grass area you can walk straight out from your patio. The kids can play in this grassy area.

The hotel is beautiful and the bedsheets were soft and luxurious. Everything is very professional and well maintained. However I do feel that the reception needs to be a little more friendly. The were kind and all,but somehow lacked the warmth and passion.

However the bellhop were friendly and helpful. They tried to assist us in any possible ways.

All in all, a big beautiful and reasonable price hotel.

The hotel is within walking distance to LEGOLAND (discount tickets available at the concierge) and has a private entrance into the park. Guest self-parking is free. Complimentary shuttle within 5 mile radius. Free fitness center. Room was large and there was no perfume or cleaning odors. Very small balcony. Basic amenities, complimentary shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. No makeup mirror. No rope, cotton ball, toothbrushes, etc. All rooms are smoke-free. Very small bathroom. It has ventilation but it was noisy, ran constantly and there was no way to turn it off. Complimentary computer center (Link@Sheraton) with webcam to send video postcards. Check-in at 4pm, check out at 11am. In-room dining 7 days a week, 6am to 11pm. Spa includes massages ($135/1 hour, $175/80 minutes), facials, body polish and wraps, and salon for nails, makeup, eyelash/eyebrow treatments.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing LEGOLAND and ocean.

We just returned from a 5-night stay here, where we had a wonderful experience.

The staff were friendly, attentive, knowledgeable about the area, helpful, and polite. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. The pool area is beautiful, with a nice amount of seating, ample towels, and a Jacuzzi. There are also other things to do at the pool, such as ping-pong, Foosball, and corn hole. We ate dinner from the poolside menu one evening. The food is made in the kitchen of the hotel's restaurant and delivered poolside. The manager actually came over to answer our questions about the menu and assured that one member of our party who is gluten and dairy-free was still able to eat. The food was delicious. I had the fish tacos and would highly recommend them. The fitness center has plenty of machines of various sorts and is very clean.

The location of the hotel is wonderful, with gorgeous views in every direction. It is a short drive to pretty much any restaurant you would want to visit, Carlsbad Village, the beach, or shops. Legoland is right there, and the hotel even has a private gate through which you can enter and enjoy the park. If you don't feel like driving or walking, the hotel has a shuttle service that will drive you anywhere within a five-mile radius.

A word of caution about the shuttles--they are based on availability. I understood that to mean that we might have to wait for a shuttle when we needed it, but they may actually black out shuttle usage during certain busy periods. We found that out the hard way when we needed to get our entire group to a function on Friday evening. When we asked for a shuttle, we were told that shuttle service was blacked out until after 7:00 because of two large events at the hotel itself. However, the manager kindly worked with us and found us a shuttle when I explained our situation. We could have avoided the issue if we had reserved the shuttle earlier in the day. Once again, the staff went above and beyond to help us out, and we appreciated it!

I absolutely fell in love with the Carlsbad area and hope to return here again someday with my family for vacation. We would love more time to explore the area, and this hotel is a perfect place from which to do it.
