Positive Reviews

Lots of fun in the sun..

Many families find the La Quinta Inn & Suites San Diego Carlsbad a very convenient home base for their trip to Legoland, which is only a few miles away. Swimmers find the pool and hot tub well maintained, and love that the beach is within walking distance. Drivers note the hotel is easily accessible from I-5, and that SeaWorld and San Diego are within day trip range.

Room for the whole family..

Guests often describe the suites as very clean and comfortable, with modern furniture, a microwave, and a mini refrigerator. Young families particularly appreciate the space and flexibility of the two-bedroom suites, which include bunk beds for the little ones. The family pets also feel right at home, and love that the Del Mar dog beach is only 15 minutes away.

Friendly faces and a hearty breakfast..

Many guests have described the hotel's entire staff as friendly, accommodating, and professional. Hungry travelers also give the complimentary breakfast high marks for variety and presentation, often rating it "above average", with scrambled eggs, sausage, and steel cut oatmeal in addition to the usual waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, and cereals.

Negative Reviews

A noisy night for some..

Guests in rooms closest to the freeway have reported a restless night due to the traffic noise. An unlucky few have also had noisy children or barking dogs as next door neighbors.

Rooms on the small side..

Unlike the suites, the standard rooms seem to be on the small side, as families or groups of four report feeling "cramped" in the rooms with two beds.

Climate control issues..

Several guests have reported issues with faulty air conditioning. A few others have been disappointed in the overall level of housekeeping, as well.
