The Lady and I decided to get a room here for our anniversary so we didn't have to drive after dinner and drinks. In the elevator on the way up to my room after I just checked in I start talking with a gentleman Brian who works at the resort in engineering. He asks if I have anything fun planned?...

The beauty and cleanliness of this resort were a definite plus. The staff was respectful and efficient. The charm of Carlsbad offers a mix of quiet beauty with great shopping and services. Ideal distance from Los Angeles and San Diego.

This resort was fantastic. The room was great, it was surrounded by palm trees, so it didn't even feel like you were in a city. It was right near some absolutely fantastic outlet shopping as well. They have a shuttle that will take you anywhere within a 5 mile radius, and that's a truly stellar feature, especially if you don't...

Thanks to Gene the maintenance tech for setting our thermostat to the perfect temperature and showing us how to work it! He was very friendly and efficient. The resort is very nice. Good third floor view of ocean, fitness facilities, nicely appointed rooms.

This hotel did not live up to the ratings that it has on TA. On the positive side the rooms are large and kept clean. However, the construction and maintence are lacking in a big way. We were in room 399. One of the bathroom doors latch plate had been previously dislodged and very poorly repaired. Nearly every door in...

Great hotel for a meeting. Comfortable rooms, lovely conference room and wonderful food. It is Across the street from d and about a mile from the beach although you can see it from the hotel. Pool looked nice and lots of activities.

Not sure how or why this property is rated so high on TA... I was pretty disappointed with our choice. The only reason to stay here is if you are planning to go to Legoland. It is about a 5-7 minute walk. Otherwise, while you can see the ocean from the pool area, it's pretty far from the ocean and...

We stayed here with our 3 young children in November 2016 and it was absolutely perfect! It was a nice, quiet setting to return to after our busy theme park days. It is right across the street from Legoland which was awesome. We recommend buying Legoland annual passes from Costco (which is also right across the street) for the same...

I've stayed here a couple of times now and I just love it. I had to wait awhile to check in each time, but after that, it was smooth sailing the WHOLE time. I love that they have a separate pool area for adults (very pretty, too). And if I had kids, I would love the kids pool area, it's...
