    Staff was very good. Front desk personnel were friendly and very helpful. housecleaning staff was great but most did not speak English so it helped that front office people were great.

    Wifi was intermittent at best - Breakfast was nothing to write home about but there if you need a quick fix in the morning.

    Complimentary breakfast. Hotel is located across the street from outlet stores and very close to Legoland --- shuttle available. Free wi-fi

    Housekeeping came before 8:30AM. Remember to put out the "do not disturb" sign. Outside of facility is dated. Wi-fi kept disconnecting.

    Located close to gas station ,shopping center, and dinning areas...just a few minutes away from Legoland . Really cute pool area ..the whole setting of the building is just nice made it easy to find your way.

    Room was close to their generator ,it was noisy...but the pool view ..made it worth it.

    Convenience was key. This was close to the highway and close to Legoland. The pool was nice. The atmosphere was family like. Lots of kids.

    The bed wasn't comfortable. My husband and I tossed and turned. Could have used a towel or two more in the room. The TV signal was grainy.

    The breakfast was good, but don't be late! Doors are locked at 10.00am promptly!

    I booked this hotel because of its slightly lower rate compared to the resort in which we usually stay while vacationing in Carlsbad each summer. Unfortunately, it wasn't worth it. This hotel is in desperate need of updating. The entire property needs painting and repairs. The woman in the office was unfriendly and seemed unhappy to be there. The lights were not working in the bathroom in our room, there was hair in the bathtub and the carpet was slightly damp which made the room sticky.The 2 queen room was $200.00 per night with tax. It was definitely overpriced for the quality of the property. We were originally planning to stay 3 nights but cancelled our reservation when we were able to get reservations at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort just up the street. The nightly rate was slightly($23.00) more but so worth it.

    We had a room facing the pool which was great. The pool and hot tub were great too. It was a good location because we were going to lego land.

    The price was very high for what we got. The breakfast was not very good for the price we paid for the room.

    Loved that we could just walk there. Shuttle was a great convenience as well.

    That both phones did not work when we arrived. Poor WiFi connectivity.

    Location was great!

    As soon as we opened the door to our room we could smell mold. Our room had mold in many spots in the bathroom. There were also rust around all the doors and windows and around 50 gnats stuck to the bathroom ceiling. We all woke up with sore throats. We had planned a 3 day stay and only slept in our room and checked out the next morning. I called our booking agent as soon as we got in the room to change our reservation to 1 day and they contacted the hotel staff. The staff never contacted us to help in the situation at all.

    The area was nice and so was the staff.

    There were a few bugs flying around in my room that I had to deal with before going to bed.

    Liked the back patio in our room and the grass areas for kids to play!

    Need a waffle maker in breakfast room. Would have preferred more counter space in sink area.

    All staff from check in to manager drivers cleaners were helpful and so nice and informative and looks like they enjoy working there . I like the convenience of the stores across the street and shuttle to legoland. So it works out if you didn't have a car to get around.

    Hard to say... It's look old when you first arrive but then the room we got was very spacious clean and remodeled inside

    Location, breakfast, lanai and view from the room looked out onto green space, plenty of parking, staff very courteous

    Not enough hot water at breakfast for tea, would like to have had hard boiled eggs in addition to the omelets for the kids. Just FYI the refrigerator freezer in the room isn't cold enough to keep ice cream frozen--I expected that since it's just a small frig, but others in our party thought it should keep ice cream hard.
