best value

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: It was close to everything.
Cons: Some of the furniture and carpet to be updated
Location: Lego Land... Ocean .... Mall outlets across the street. Restaurants...car rental on site
It might not look like much but it is the best value. Hot breakfast for free...take you to Lego land the ocean and the train station at a moments notice.. Hot tub and heated pool..and the Hispanic cleaning service is the best..oh and it has a fridge and microwave and more.

A friend and I traveled to Carlsbad to spend some times with friends in the area. The hotel was centrally located for our travels to Escondido, San Marcos and Oceanside. Our pool side room was clean, comfortable and welcoming. It was right across the street from the outlets and a wonderful nursery. Over the freeway was the ocean, coastal access and multiple choices for dining. What more could we ask for on our 3 day mini vacation? With breakfast included our trip was complete! I would recommend Carlsbad By The Sea Resort to anyone and plan on staying there on my next trip south!

Would I, Wouldn't I...? Probably not...!!!

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: Room reasonable
Cons: Bathroom needs renewed. Whole place is in need of a revamp
Location: Not bad for business in the area
In desperate need of a make over. Very dated, breakfast unappitising and breakfast staff actually quite rude but should not take away from rest of hotel staff.

Dirty, old, loud, and uncomfortable

Posted Oct 17, 2014
Very dirty room. Rooms need to be updated (everything seems very old). Loud refrigerator and couldn't sleep. Dirty and broken sheets. Overall a bad experience. My wife and I wanted to stay in a different place just to try something new. We usually stay at Holiday Inn or Hyatt for a quick trip to California but now we know that trying out a new place is not always the best option. We will never go back.

exterior of the building is older, you can see that there are definitely some repairs being made. But the inside of the rooms are been updated and are clean have nice views I love plenty of convenience being close to shopping, free breakfast, nice courtyard.
