    The camp fires near the beach and the convenient location of a nearby restaurant.

  • Group of friends

    Very close to Legoland, 3 min walking distance, the swiming pool area is very nice... and the hotel staff is very kind

  • Family with children
    4.0

    The location was nice, an easy walk to Lego land. The hotel itself was a disappointment though. Lots of things in disrepair, they put us in a room we had not reserved with an old, broken hide-a-bed. I had to wait forever to see a manager, along with several other unhappy people, to get a room change. The room we ended up staying in had several small problems which added up by the end of our stay. I would not stay there again, I'd go to the Sheridan.

  • Family with children

    The location right next to Legoland can't be beat. Less than 5 min walk to the front gates and it saved the $15 per day parking fee at Legoland. The family pool area is very good for younger kids. Ours were 8 and 10 and they really enjoyed the pool.

    Front desk staff were very vague about check-in info. Wrong directions on how to get to our room. We found out after we got to our room that the events coordinator who everyone speaks to during the check-in procedure was supposed to give us our pool towels but didn't.

    Nice hotel, very nice pools

    Kids pool was very cold, no slides

  • Family with children

    The pools were great and we enjoyed the game room with free games! Loved that there was a brew pub in the parking lot. Very clean and people were friendly.

    It may sound silly but we needed more electical plug ins! Had to charge our phones in the bathroom. Also, room had great coffee maker but stocked with decafe but not enough regular. The maid did not empty our trash on the second night so trash overflowed. We did not have a book in our room with numbers, menu, or pool info even after we asked for it. We checked in at 7:00pm and the room was not ready. The guy checking us in said he would remove the resort fees off our stay, $60 a night but this did not show on our bill. The room and hotel really was nice, but just a few small problems.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    Staff was very friendly and worked extremely well when there was a problem. Nice pool and water park for kids.

    Loud doors and would not close all the way unless pushed or pulled hard. Room smelled like chemical after being cleaned, had to change rooms. The kids play area was nice, but looked like it could be updated/changed.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Nice staff. Location near LegoLand. We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and the room was very nice, quiet and comfortable.

  • Single
    6.4

    Good location just off Interstate 5 to visit customers in the Carlsbad area. Underground parking available to guests.

    Hotel is orientated towards families and longer stays - only one restaurant on site (which is ok).

  • Family with children
    9.6

    - Nice clean hotel with lots of kid friendly activity walking distance to Legoland

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Hotel was comfortable and good access to the area. Lap pool was nice, not a lot of hotels offer that. Enjoyed Karl Strauss brewery.

    When booking was told total price was $129. At check in was told there would be an additional charge of $16 for hotel ammenities. Then at check out I was told with taxes and fees total cost was $164. When booking on line it should not say total price if it is not, and at check in I should have been told the total price that way if I did not like it I would have at least had the option of going elsewhere. For $164 in March there are a lot of other options.
