Score from 30 reviews Excellent
I liked that Legoland and outlets were within walking distance. I also liked the shuttle.
The shuttle hours. We wanted to go to legoland early afternoon and the shuttle just operates from 9am-12pm
Location to beach, legoland, restaurants. staff was friendly. Comfy beds and pillows. enjoyed the open space of the courtyard
It wasn't quite as nice as the pictures indicated. For the price I didn't expect much more. The breakfast room is VERY crowded. It would be nice if the had two stations one at each end of the room. Also a waffle station as most hotels offer now.
The room was immaculate and had a microwave and fridge
The wifi required a card and needed to be requested from the front desk. A $75 refundable deposit was required for wifi. I've never been to a hotel that made it a process to utilize wifi.
Definitely I recomend this hotel, clean, quiet and you enjoy a fair breakfast and free parking. 8 minutes to legoland and the hotel ofer shuttle. My kids loved this place!!
I requested in advance a room facing the pool area but instead received a room where we have stated before and was not 100% satisfied.
great location, great breakfast buffet which was kept stocked. very comfortable beds. convenientaly located right next to interstate. two mins from the beach literally. free shuttle to legoland
I left my tablet charger in the room immediately called next day when i noticed contacted front desk said theyd talk to room service and give me a call back. never recieved any callback
the room was large and comfortable
the hotel is very nice inside but needs an exterior make over
Walking distance from Legoland
Very noisy from the nearby highway
Liked the price, location (especially for Legoland and outlets). Was quiet and clean (room faced the pool). Staff was fantastic.
Needs a little updating...tub was very worn. Saw a few large mice (or small rats) running from bush to bush in walkways outside door.
Pool was convenient and pleasant. Landscaping was nice. Location adjacent to outlet mall and close to Legoland and the beach a plus for families. There is something for everyone.
Buildings are older and somewhat rundown. Security with patio doors is questionable.
The ppl below called the front desk on us ever 10 min for just walking around at 3:00 in the afternoon
Love the location: Restaurants and shopping were near by, Beach just around the corner and LEGOLAND very close by. Breakfast was really good and the staff were very friendly. Love the free shuttle ride up to LEGOLAND and back to the hotel.
We did not care to much for T.G.I Friday's, the food was not all that great the price was a little to high for the quality of food that was given.
The breakfast is good the pool and rooms are very clean every time we go to Carlsbad we stay at Carlsbad by the sea and we will stay there again.
Walking distance (5-15 min) to Legoland, Premium outlets, ocean beach, restaurants, Costco. Free shuttle van to Legoland. Swimming pool for kids.
it was close to a lot of amenities and the mall
the wifi sucks
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.
add more choices with breakfast buffet, poor wifi inside room
Close to Legoland Shuttle service Pool area The size of the room Seating area outside of the room
Room smelling maul, was not happy to take a deep breath Restroom was quite old design
Children playing, close to many activities.
Loud pool activity until 10:00pm
nice pool, great breakfast
there were no 'rinse off' showers by the pool
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.
Great pool, nice staff, good size room. Good if you are going to Lego
Middle of nowhere by the freeway - wished we had stayed nearer the beach
Everything Was Great Room Was Clean Location Was Good Near Legoland And Beach
Front Desk Lady Was A Bit Rude And Security Took About An Hour To Tell Us To Keep Quiet Just Because Was Smoking On Front Porch Talking...
Perfect location. Shuttle service to Legoland outlets directly across the street. This Friday restaurant on hotel premises. Freeway right there. Great breakfast & staff
