    I really liked the location! It was minutes away from everything including the beach.

    Didn't care for the breakfast too much.

    We chose this because we thought it was by the sea. Unfortunately, not.

    It was easy to reach and not that expensive

    it is really close to the freeway and airport so rather noisy

    The price was affordable, it was also comfortable, the beds were soft.

    The screen door to the balcony needs maintenence.

    I stayed at Carlsbad by the Sea resort because I needed to be close to the Encinitas region. The hotel was an easy and pleasurably scenic drive from the town, so the location was great. Parking was not an issue and there are loads of restaurants and the Carlsbad Premium Outlets just across the street which was very convenient. The room was very big, facing the pool, not the street, so not noisy at all.

    The gym is small and not very modern, but it was convenient to have one on site. Breakfast was included, which was nice, but the choices were limited and the layout of the buffet can be improved because there was always a queue.

  • Group of friends

    Convenience to relatives, shopping, good restaurants, beaches. Free Continental Breakfast. Computer availability to print Boarding Passess.

    No elevator for 2nd floor rooms.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Convenient arrangement of hotel. Wide beds. Comfortable number. Удобное расположение отеля. Широкие кровати. Комфортный номер.

    Hotel payment at settling in hotel. If you have used additional services in hotel at departure you again should pay for number in hotel + the received services. To pay in addition for additional services on a reception it was not possible!!!!Оплата отеля при заселении в отель. Если вы воспользовались дополнительными услугами в отеле, то при выезде вам снова придется оплачивать за номер в отеле + полученные услуги. Доплатить за дополнительные услуги на ресепшене было не возможно!!!!

    We liked that the rooms were remodeled recently and it helps make the stay more enjoyable and it was on the second floor. The room was not a small, the noise level was not loud considering the hotel is very close to the freeway, and the neighbors were not noisy. We enjoyed the use of the pool because there were not many using the pool. We liked that is was very close to the restaurants, shopping, and Legoland. We often walked to go to dinner, lunch, and shopping because it was easier that driving.

    The front door was hard to close. You had to pull hard and double check it; otherwise, there is a chance the door is still open. The alarm clock display was broken,and should have been report by us. The handle of the siding window door had sharp edges so someone could injure themselves. In the bathroom, there were no hand rails in case someone slips in the tub or needs support in getting in/out. There was a green gate with a card reader that we had to enter before heading to our room 259. The green gate was broken so it would not have prevented any outsiders from entering.

    There was no one at the front desk when I had to check out, and after waiting for five minutes, I left. I have since been charged $16,67 on my credit card, and I have no idea why. I never used any of the hotel's services.

    The landscaped gardens with their cute gazebos and nicely positioned pool and hot tub. The location is right across the street from easy fast restaurants and outlet shopping.

    The staff should take a course in customer service: 9 out of the 10 people we encountered were quite unpleasant. One woman was nice, however she is the same person who promised that our clogged sink (filled with someone else's hair!) would be fixed shortly...Eight hours later, it still wasn't fixed! At the 9th hour, we couldn't take it anymore (they now had a guy with a grinding roto rooter assuring us that he would not have it fixed anytime soon) we asked to switch rooms. Despite an offer of a discount for the inconvenience, nearly getting killed in the shuttle van to Legoland (do not get in if the driver is named John), we lost all hope of ever staying here again. The driver ignored the fact that I was pregnant and we were travelling with a small child, and drove like a maniac - actually squealing tires out of the parking lot. When I told him I'd like him to slow down because I was pregnant, he said he'd "call 111" and they could deal with it! What ??? 111?? Who is this lunatic?? Then, after 4 mornings of eggs cooked with cheese whiz, and noticing the room we originally were assigned now had the carpets ripped up with de-humidifiers going all day and night... We truly have no desire to ever stay here again. It's too bad that this glorified "motel " has enough charm with its gardens and pool to actually continue fooling people into believing it qualifies as a "resort ". Someone should overhaul the rooms and staff to charm us "suckers" back. Until then, stay anywhere else ! Good luck !

    Very friendly staff and very close to restaurants and stores.

    The rooms were clean and nicely furnished.

    The exercise room was nice and roomy but it had a stale order.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    I love the balcony overlooking the pool, the hot tub, the breakfast and proximity to beach, city, shopping and restaurants.

    Small request. Last year, we had a very similar room overlooking the pool and one of the things I liked a lot was the up lights on the trees at night. It seemed like most of them have been removed or turned off. Please bring them back.

    Location.

    It was ok but for the price I had better. Room outdated

    The bed was comfortable. The bedroom had decent furniture.

    The facility was run down looking. Our room was directly off the large parking lot and busy street. The bathroom was not up dated. Our cost for the room for 1 night was $199 before tax. Paid a total of $220 for the night.
