“Great job on lobby renovations...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

I stay at this hotel when I am in town for business and I saw the transformation of the facility and it's a nice comfortable hotel for business travelers. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel is in a quiet area. They changed the way they do breakfast now but I like it the old way better, but it still works okay. The hotel is catering to business guests so if you are looking for a place for a family stay pick another hotel...

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing the pool...

This hotel just went through a major renovation of their common area. They have these great "pod-like" areas - some with their own TV's. The staff is very pleasant and the bartender, Aaron, is just the best! I stay here 4-5 times per year and wouldn't choose another hotel in Carlsbad. It is comfortable and cozy.

This hotel is very close to Legoland. Our room is nice and clean and had a very pleasant stay. Hotel staff is also helpful and professional. Free Wi-Fi and parking.

Room Tip: Get a room not facing the swimming pool (court yard) to avoid road noise from close by main road.

Stayed here just one night before a MovementU class at a nearby gym. Good cafe, friendly & helpful staff. Basic but solid stay for the business traveler.

Just spent two nights at this courtyard. Seeking a value stay for our trip to Legoland we thought this was a good choice. Quiet location with quick easy access to many attractions. The short drive to Legoland or the beach was as expected. The rooms are standard for this class of hotel however I was impressed by the bedding and beds. Very comfortable. The pool with surrounding palm trees is inviting. The remodeled lobby is comfortable and tech updated. My only negative was the bathroom, vanity, closet arrangement. Cramped and not very efficient. Overall we thought this was a very good value choice for the Carlsbad area.
