"Very good hotel due to location and features but no charm."
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 9, 2014

Our group of 3 adults and 2 kids booked for one night after our Legoland trip. This is quite near to Legoland which is approximately 10 minutes away with no traffic (going around the speed limit). It is also close to Poinsettia Village (town center) that has a Ralph's grocery store and other restaurants such as sushi kuchi (40% off on selected rolls if you take out by the way). We booked a 2 queen beds with microwave and fridge set up. Room appears to be a bit small in comparison to let's say the 2 queen room set up in old town inn in san diego. I didn't notice any freeway noise once inside. They have free wifi that needs a password to logged in. Wifi appears decently strong from our location which is on the 2nd floor overlooking Ramada Carlsbad. The hotel also offer continental breakfast with the standard breakfast pastries, hard boil eggs, drinks, and make your own waffles. I'm actually satisfied with the stay but somehow the personality/charm of this particular hotel is somewhat forgettable. The person who helped us out was not particularly friendly and pretty much just said the important stuff of where our room is located, Wifi and password, and breakfast. Even checking out, the person didn't even inquire how our stay was. I'll recommend the place but don't expect the friendliest of staff.

"Air conditioner nightmare"

It's 4 AM as we speak, since we walked into this room at 8pm last night the AC hasn't worked... My poor 5 year old and I are drenched in sweat on HIS birthday... I could have taken my money somewhere else like the ramada next door and maybe I wouldn't have to witness my child sweating his brains out because they don't check the ACs in this place, the people who work downstairs don't care. "I'll make note of it", I'd rather you give me my money back so I can go next door and be taken care of. This place is a joke

Great hotel for families visiting Legoland and a short walk to a state park with a nice beach. Free breakfast has both hot and cold items. Also located within easy walk to several restaurants and small shopping center.

"Great location - great experience except"

Internet was very slow - it felt more like dial up speeds than the described "high speed". I found the breakfast to be monotonous and not very fresh. There were some bugs in the bed but housekeeping got that under control quickly.
