Positive Reviews

Convenient location not far from the beach

Reviewers welcomed this motel's location in a reportedly pleasant neighborhood just off the Interstate 5 San Diego Highway and close to shopping and dining. Motorists also appreciated the ample free parking. Vacationers wanting to relax on the beach liked being just ten minutes' walk from South Carlsbad State Beach. Those traveling without the car liked being within 15 minutes' walk of the nearest station for Coaster trains. It was also just a short drive from Legoland California.

Decent rooms and facilities offered good value

According to many reviewers, the competitive room rates coupled with basic but comfortable rooms made this motel a good value option for travelers on a budget visiting often pricey Carlsbad. The remodeled rooms attracted praise for their vinyl floors instead of carpets and modern touches like flat-screen TVs. The inviting swimming pool was a bonus and guests often said this motel was more than satisfactory for a shorter stay. However, critics sometimes said the rooms were small and came with limited supplies of soap and towels.

Positive about customer service

Reportedly pleasant staff on reception helped make for a comfortable stay, often attracting praise from reviewers for being helpful, attentive and friendly.

Negative Reviews

Claims of patchy housekeeping standards

There was some criticism of cleanliness standards due to occasional reports that rooms didn't always appear to have been comprehensively cleaned ready for new guests, some of whom spotted hair and dust on arrival.

Unpopular Wi-Fi charges

Charges for Wi-Fi access proved unpopular and some of those who paid up were disappointed by the signal strength and network speeds.

Nuisance noises and smells reported

Traffic noise from the nearby freeway was a nuisance for some light sleepers. Some guests also said they encountered lingering tobacco odors in non-smoking rooms.
