Better than expected

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Location: The diner just South (at the fwy exit) was, again, surprisingly good. It was comforting to see a lot of locals coming in for large take-out orders.
We were quite pleased with the room, the breakfast, the staff. The bathroom was surprisingly nice (not compared to a lot of places we've stayed, but for a 2.5-rated property, this was the highlight - granite counter, under-mount sink, new fixtures, cultured marble surrounds). The free internet was far better than the premium (extra charge) service we've used at nicer properties. The location was ideal for getting to anywhere within 20 miles, being right on I-5, though the noise was an offset at night. Our room location, at the far back, helped, but we still needed to run the fan, just for noise abatement. There is nothing that stands out as 'super fancy' or truly 'upscale', but for a budget 'motel', this was just fine. We were here only because we waited too long to reserve. The 20+ properties we looked at that were $30-80 more per night were all booked.

Great staff

Only negative for me was the proximity to the freeway. Others may like that. Staff was excellent.

Not for families with kids

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Room was not clean. Lots of dust. Paint or coating in the bathtub can be easily taken off. And, it will be better for you to prepare breakfast for kids by yourself as their breakfast is not that great at all.

Perfect place to stay for fam of 4!

Posted Apr 2, 2015
The hotel was excellent! It was exactly what we needed after a long day at Legoland. The front desk was kind and helpful, rooms were clean, comfy, and roomy and breakfast was a simple choice of cereal, toast, muffins, fruit, or waffles which was just enough for my family. We took advantage of the heated pool and my kids did not want to get out. They loved it! The hotel is by the freeway but I did not hear it at all. The beach is just a short drive too. I would most definitely stay here again!!!!

Very pleasant overnight stay. Room was quite large and nicely furnished. Freeway noise might be a problem for some, but it wasn't too bad. The staff was professional and at the same time a lot of fun!

Nice hotel close to downtown and the beach.

Posted Mar 13, 2015
This is the fourth time we have stayed at this hotel and we will stay there again when visiting Carlsbad. The price is very reasonable for the area. The room has a coffee maker , microwave and fridge which are very welcome if you are staying more than one night. The staff is friendly and very helpful with suggestions on restaurants and things to do. The location is close to downtown and the beach and great freeway access. Once you close the door to your room the road noise disappears!

Great for a quick and reasonable stay

Posted Mar 10, 2015
Pros: Reasonable, convenient, clean and safe.
Cons: Bathtub plug was broken.
Location: We did brunch in the village and some shopping.
Liked the plaza set up and wished I would have had time to spent in the pool as it was a great day.

One night quick stay. The hotel is just by the highway. A bit noisy in the night. It's just OK. It wouldn't be your choice if you wanted a pleasing stay. But it will do if you just look for a place to sleep over clean and safe.
