So I was here for the Carlsbad Half and it was a great spot. The lovely lady that drove the shuttle was also the one who welcomed me to the hotel. She was very kind. They provided drop off service and pick up at the start and finish line. It was soooo nice to not have to worry about driving...

We stayed here over Christmas weekend for our Legoland vacation and had a wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful hotel and awesome staff. We stayed in a king suite - the beds were so comfy and we also had a small refrigerator and microwave. The housekeeping staff was so attentive. They left a basket of towels/soaps...

My wife and I annually drive to Carlsbad on New Years eve to stay overnight to attend a family gathering on New Year's day.

My husband, 5 year old son and I stayed here over the New Year's weekend. This is one of the nicest (if not the nicest) hotel we have stayed in. The first night we arrived, we enjoyed dinner at the Bistro West. It was a limited menu due to the holiday, however, it was very good. We had an Executive...

Conveniently located, good breakfast, spacious rooms, dining areas and lobby. Great value. Will be back. Great restaurant choices right next door. Several shopping centers and fast food restaurants nearby. Less than 5 minutes to the beach.

The hotel was clean and friendly, shuttle service was excellent as well as the breakfast. My 3 year old look forward to the cookies and milk each night which was a nice treat for him. I would go back to this hotel.

Could not have been happier! Excellent...a step up from a Hampton and more reasonably priced. Even closer to the beach. Has an associated restaurant/bar a few steps away from the front entry and an upscale convenience store with gas just across the lot. I would classify everything as upscale. Coffee is good, too.

This hotel is the nicest I have ever stayed at. Great staff, really comfortable rooms and not far from anything in Carlsbad.

Carlsbad, California is a fun place to visit. Located just north of San Diego, it’s a popular stopover for those visiting Legoland, nearby museums, or the ever- popular and scenic Pacific Ocean beaches. It is also home to some very impressive places of lodging, one of which is the West Inn & Suites. I stayed at this boutique hotel on...
