We love staying at this hotel when visiting Legoland. The hotel is clean, no charge for parking, free breakfast and close to Legoland. The staff is always friendly and helpful.There is also a 7-11 across the street for any last minute drinks/snacks.

We did not have high expectations about the hotel due to its guest rating, but still, the housekeeping department made sure we will not stay here again. For example, We put our son's pajamas and blanket on the bed, and found housekeeping throw them on the carpet. The carpet has unknown black stains in multiple places. Dishwasher has stinky water...

To me, this hotel makes sense if you are a business traveler, or have a family with you. There are so many reasonably priced, nice hotels close to the beach that I would not stay here for an adult beach vacation. Having said that, the accommodations are spacious and reasonably priced. Pros: 1. It has a nice separation of space...

We used this location as our homebase for activities in the San Diego and Carlsbad areas. The location is fantastic. Because the hotel is in a business park, it is fairly quiet and the pool/patio area is very relaxing. It truly is a great place location-wise. The breakfast is your standard RI fare: waffles, fruit, eggs, meat, breads etc. The...

We love this hotel! We stay here with our kids when we go to LegoLand. The suites are great with a nice kitchen and comfortable beds/pillows. The breakfast is great with fun extras; the pool, hot tub, patio with heat lamps, and basketball court make it even nicer. I've also used the exercise room and been happy with the equipment....

We stayed here on a family trip to Legoland. The room was nice, the staff was friendly and our stay was very pleasant. We enjoyed some pool time and basketball and a few of the restaurants near the hotel. It was a great stay, the whole family can recommend highly.

This Residence Inn is well managed and maintained. It is very convenient to Legoland and Carlsbad Village. It's very family with children friendly. You may want to wear shoulder pads to the busy crowded weekend breakfast service, but the hardworking staff keep the buffet full and dining area clean. The rooms are well stocked for short term living-needs.

Stayed in 2 different rooms on consecutive nights. While the beds are up to Marriott comfort standard, the housekeeping is not. Floors in both rooms were not well vacuumed. Leftover trash was under the desk. Both sofa beds were disgusting with crumbs & trash on mattresses. In 1 room the toiletries were incomplete. The rooms are not designed with women...

Nice, comfortable rooms made a five day visit enjoyable, 'The staff was great and the service excellent. This hotel is about 30 minutes from San Diego and 15 minutes to Del Mar. Easy drives. A visit to Carlsbad and LEGOLAND is so easy from this location.
