"Carlsbad La Quinta"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 20, 2014
Randy H | Peoria
On our recent family vacation we stayed st the Carlsbad, Ca La Quints. We had 2 rooms for 5 days. We were happy with the hotel and the location. We were just off of I-5, 2 blocks from the ocean, 8 minutes from Lego Land and 20 to 30 minutes from downtown, the Zoo, Sea World and the Harbor.

"Great location to the beach, Legoland"

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at this location and I love it. Close to everything that Carlsbad has to offer. Minutes to the Coaster, the beach, outlet malls, Legoland, I-5. Love the remodeled breakfast room. Staff is super friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

"Felt very cramped"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 20, 2014
Jenna J | Pueblo, United States
The room was very cramped for 4 people (and we had 5 with a toddler on the floor). The room was not worth the price of $161 a night. It should have been $70. The pool was very small. We weren't given enough towels for our room. The breakfast area was always crowded and the waffle area was messy. It was an okay stay, just not worth the high price.

"Awesome Hotel"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 19, 2014
Manuel V | Tucson, United States
We have been staying at this hotel for a few years now. They have remodeled the dining room which is beautiful. Wonderful breakfast had many choices. Esperanza, the lady in charge of the dining room has been there for years and she works so hard to keep everything stocked and clean. All employees were very professional and eager to make our stay a memorable one. We will definitely stay there any time we are in Carlsbad.

"Great stay after a long day at the beach."
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 17, 2014
Amy S | Palm Desert, California
This was my first time staying at a La Quinta Inn. This property appeared to recently renovated, and they are currently updating the area off of the lobby where they offer free breakfast in the morning. Not saying there was any trace of construction, it was still clean and orderly. Just a polite sign talking about the process. I stayed in a suite with a king size bed and pull out sofa bed. The room was 2 conjoing rooms with a separate living room. Lots of space. The room was clean. The bed was beyond comfortable! Especially after a long beach day. I didn't wake up in time to check out the free breakfast, so I cant say anything about that. Overall this was a great find. Close to the beautiful beaches in Carlsbad, and tons of restaurants within a close drive.
