Older hotel. Very quiet but could use a good scrub (carpets throughout the lobby needed vacuumed and it was only morning; my kids went barefoot in our room and had black feet after a few minutes—ew). Pool was nice and breakfast was good. Lots of parking on site, close to everything. They do charge a $100 deposit when you show up and then will return after you leave if you don’t have incidentals, so beware of that.

This is a great option, especially for the price. Easy access to I-5 and close to Carlsbad Village. Free parking is a plus. Our room was clean and quiet. The only minor misstep was upon check in our bathroom was missing shampoo and body wash. But that was quickly remedied. The only thing I did not like about the room is the bathtub was so long (maybe 6') it was not comfortable for a 5'-2" woman. I could not recline and soak in the tub without sliding under the water. And the shower head was mounted so high on the wall I could not reach it to adjust the angle. Guess this place was built for tall people. Most people would like the breakfast. However, I have a dairy and corn allergy and there was nothing I felt safe eating except the apples. No milk alternatives were available. They had scrambled eggs, which usually have milk in them. One day they had link sausage (usually has a corn product), the next day patty sausage (ditto), and the final day they had ham. I can't eat breads without knowing the ingredients, which were not available so that was out. I ended up bringing my own milk and bread for toast. But the breakfast room was nice.

Room and bathroom grounds needed updates but the bed was comfortable, shower had good pressure and the breakfast was okay (I hate powdered eggs and the sausage was too spicy for us) We had our dog with us and they had a good size run in the back.

Very nice Hotel. Everything was great. Close to the ocean. The room was very good, clean, comfortable, and very quiet. The breakfast was excellent, not your average complimentary breakfast. Everything about this hotel was very good.

Came mostly for the pet friendliness. The dog relief area was right against the fwy. There was a great park across the street, but a homeless guy showed up. Dogs aren’t allowed in the swimming pool area which I thought was a bummer. The restaurants next door were closed for renovations.
