We were kindly upgraded [I think because we are elderly, wanted a first floor room, and the extra-large room was on the ground floor in a quiet area]. The kitchen didn't have any plates or cookware, but perhaps they would be provided on request. The sofa and bed were comfortable and tasteful. Not super modern by any means, but we...

The best I can say for this place is the sheets were clean and the room appeared to be clean. However, after walking barefoot in the room my feet were black. There was no coffee pot in the room nor a hair dryer. Complimentary toiletries such as shampoo were not worth using. The grounds were tidy so it looked better...

We were shopping around for a place to stay our second try was within our price range. The desk clerk quoted us at $69.00 per night excluding taxes That was a senior rate. When we went to check out early the next morning we were told it was $89.00 per night. This form of bait and switch was a surprise...

I visited carlsbad with 4 adults and 3 children. We had 2 rooms. The continental breakfast meant a lot to us, or I should say would have . The breakfast was the waffle machine alone, no eggs no yogurt no toast no biscuits and gravy no fruit. Only one man there day and night. Hot tub is filthy and is...

We arrived late with two very tired children to a check-in gentlemen who spoke with a thick accent as if he had gauze in his mouth who was extremely abrupt, nearly shouting at me, as we tried to sort out how Priceline had not provided him a confirmation number. I had booked via Priceline and he kept arguing with me...

This little known motel has had a complete facelift. The owner has remodeled the rooms with new beds, bedding, carpet, security lighting, granite counter tops and way too many things to remember. For a privately owned property it was great.

I had driven most of the day concerning my business. I first thought we had booked a Best Western in Carlsbad but my mistake it was the Great Western. When I checked in they said they were working on the cable----would be only a few minutes well, it was around 9:00 pm when they finished. Not a good motel for...

DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL! I wasn't expecting the Ritz Carlton for the price, but I should have read the reviews and reviewed the photos before settling on this property. It wasn't, on the surface, too bad. I've stayed in worse; it was relatively clean, and they were great about our dogs. But, I awakened with bites all over...

“Best tip to get a good room is try and stay somewhere else. But if that's not an option, ask for a room on the side or back edge of the motel where any noise of workers departing in the morning would be at a minimum.”
