Score from 56 reviews Good
No late check out. Horrible repairs done that make it feel very cheap and the bathroom outlet had caught fire before our stay and wasn't repaired
Localization is good.
the breakfast is really good
the pillow and mattress very weak
Breakfast location ambiance price
Sound Insulation. You can clearly hear people talking next door. Lucky enough, our neighbor, seemed a family with little kids, was quite while we stayed. Thanks neighbor :)
Having a microwave was good. Very nice grounds. Good location to local attractions in Carlsbad.
Breakfast options could be nicer: included "make your own" waffles, offer more jam options, make Omelettes with cheddar chese instead of processed.
Pool courtyard, breakfast, location
free breakfast, location
Pool area was fantastic, as was free breakfast next morning. Staff not that friendly on arrival, but could of been having an off day as seemed happier later that evening.
Room smelt "old". Property is in desperate need of a re fresh and re carpet. We felt however it was clean (didn't look at floors too closely)
I like it because it near legoland
the room smell like cigarette
The courtyard and pool were nice and it was within close proximity to Legoland.
When I had booked the room, I booked a deluxe king room. When I got to my room, I discovered they gave me a double queen. I called the front desk and was told that that happens sometimes with booking.com and she had 1 king left but it was not as nice as the room we were in (which looked out on a parking lot and noisy pipe system). When asked for a discount, I was told I got a good enough deal and sorry. The breakfast was also not very impressive for a 'resort'. And just because it says 'By the Sea' don't expect to actually see the sea.
Locality to Legoland, Premium outlets and food establishments Choice of rooms on arrival
WiFi reception was poor and intermittent
Can't argue with value.
They showed pictures for the downtown coastal location and then reserved us for the upper, out of the way location. Facility is old. Needs upgrading.
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
The breakfast was excellent and the support staff was fantastic!
The front desk staff didn't really know what was happening. We were told when I called the day we were checking in that we could pay cash. Then when we got there they said it had already been charged to the credit card. At the end of our stay, they then said it wasn't charged. We also wanted to stay an additional night and were told that we had to wait until the morning to check out and check back in. When we wentto do that, the room was booked already. Disappointing.
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.
