Close to legoland, outlets and food

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: Proximity to Legoland
Cons: Very old installations
Location: Legoland, outlet mal
Good experience, breakfast was good. It was close to Legoland which was the reason we went to Carlsbad, having the outlets across the street was a nice added bonus.

We enjoyed the Resorts proximity to Interstate 5.

Posted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: Proximity to Interstate 5 and the premium outlet mall
We enjoyed our stay at Carlsbad by the Sea Resort while in the area visiting family and exploring San Diego and all there is to see and do in the area. The resort is in a great location being so near Interstate 5 and being just across the street from a very nice premium outlet mall. The breakfast was good, but predictable. The staff was for the most part very helpful.

Pool was just big enough, it was great seeing staff clean pool area every morning. My family and I enjoyed the complementary breakfast as well. Would definitely revisit.

Great family hotel near Legoland

Posted Apr 1, 2014
We had a great time at Carlsbad By The Sea Resort. The room was clean, bright, poolside. They let us check in early, there was a free shuttle to Legoland so we didn't have to pay for parking, and they had a decent break (the eggs aren't great but you can't go wrong with bagels & cream cheese or yogurt). And it's close to so many restaurants and shopping. We wanted to stay longer!
