It was very clean, and well situated. The parking lot was in perfect condition and clean, no trash or junk. The pool was lovely, it was obvious that it was well cared for. We felt very secure and even though it was near the freeway there was no highway noise.Outstanding.

Rude Hotel Staff

Pros: Nice pool and room has all laminate flooring no carpet
Location: Close to downtown Carlsbad and beach. Plenty of shops and restaurants near by.
Arrived at hotel by 3pm check in time room was not ready and the lady cleaning the room made was rude and made it seem she was doing us a favor by cleaning our room since they were short staffed.

Living in a room for two weeks

Pros: Close to the beach, train station, Carlsbad village shops. Staff very helpful.
Cons: Would be nicer to have faster Wifi, but probably the 'not free' Wifi is a revenue center. Better toilet tissue. Adding an oven.
Picked this hotel because of price, and in room cooking possibilities. The kitchenette had a two burner cook top, refrigerator, and microwave. Lack of an oven turned out to be surprisingly limiting, for instance, couldn't cook a frozen pizza. Hotel supplied basic cooking utensils, but there were, again, a surprising number of additional items needed. My initial room was on the third floor, next to the freeway. It was very noisy from the traffic, and I asked to be changed, and ended up on the second floor away from the freeway. Noise was okay there except for the guy who snored in the next room, and the guest in the room above who seemed to stomp everywhere. The hotel is only a 15 minute walk from the beach, and there is a French Cafe, grocery, liquor store, within easy walking distance. The room is only cleaned once a week, and they have the worst toilet tissue. Buy some at Walmart. Had two maintenance issues which were fixed fairly quickly. The free Wifi is slow. Didn't try the 'not free' Wifi

Old place with dim hallways

Very disappointed. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Badly in need of updates and definitely not a place to spend a night. Not a good value for the money.

Worst Experience I've ever had

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: Location was close to the beach and Legoland but that's about all I will say that is remotely nice about this place
When we checked into the hotel (at 1:00 am) the room was disgustingly dirty. The bathroom had dirty towels, used soap and garbage on the floor, and the sink was dirty. The kitchen sink was dirty with "spit" in it. The TV remote did not work and instead of fixing it they just took it out of the room and did not replace it. With the exception of the man who checked us in, the staff was absolutely miserable. They were rude and had no idea what they were doing. Upon check out they tried to charge us yet again.

I will go somewhere else next time.

The pool was small and filthy when we got there... it was worse when we left - they only cleaned it when we were leaving; perfect timing! My kid even got a rash from going in that pool. Addditionally, the guy at the front desk (with long hair) could have been more helpful...he looked burned out.

Pros: It was clean.
Cons: We should have been informed at the beginning that the room was next to the freeway.
Location: Other than the freeway, location was fine.
Could not sleep because hotel is next to a busy freeway. Had to get up early because this was a business trip.
