    It wasn't what I was expected and the hotel is under renovation, so it's extremely noisy in the morning

    There is extensive construction going on here at this property. It really takes away from the property and my opinion would be to stay somewhere else until it’s complete. The first room we were given hadn’t been cleaned. I mean, dirty towels draped everywhere and bathroom dirty. So they moved us. To a room overlooking the porta-potty’s the construction workers use during the day. Like, thanks. And not only that, but they were being emptied when we got in the room. After speaking with staff once again (as we were staying for 5 nights) we were moved to a renovated room. My husband overheard a staff member telling someone at checkin they were getting a certain type of room because they used a third party site. Again, not overly professional. We didn’t have any issues with getting our room cleaned daily as other reviews have stated. I did laundry one morning and the machines take credit cards. The one redeeming thing about this property is the kids pool. My kids had a blast. There is a splash pad and a pool for kids to play in. The water is a decent temp. There is also a hot tub in that area (which was closed for part of our stay) and it was luke warm. I guess better than nothing. Lots of lounge chairs in pool area. This hotel is walking distance of LEGOLAND. We took the shuttle once and then walked the rest of the times. Overall, I would say find a different hotel until the renovations are complete.

    This property used to be the best place to stay in Carlsbad. Now, no service, poor house-keeping, unclean, noisy... gone from best to poor in a year. We will not return

    This property was only a 7 minute walk to Legoland. Which was very convenient. When we got there, the hotel was under renovations; hotel rooms advertised were not very impressive; we did not get the same room booked for. This was changed without notification. This is mainly a timeshare resort. Very minimal rooms available as hotel stay. Kids water park was closed. Staff was not accommodating or friendly.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property was ok, but is currently under renovation which would have been nice to know in advance. Lots of loud noises, woke us up early a couple times. The day we arrived the kids splash pad closed down and remained closed. The big pool with the ocean view and cabanas is an adult only pool, something we also did not know in advance. This is the first photo for advertising the hotel and we were disappointed we couldn’t use it with the kids. The kid pool is fine, kid hot tub was more of a lukewarm bath. Room was average, we only had a view of a parking lot. Housekeeping was hit and miss, we had to ask them to clean our room a couple times and it was usually not cleaned until 5pm. Room definitely will be nicer once renovated.

    The property was very close to LEGO land. Restaurant onsite was great. Good good and beer selection. Property felt a bit dated.

    Convenient location. Quick walk to Legoland. Weather was terrible but pool was warm and hot tub nice. Kid friendly for sure! I found our 1 bedroom perfect for our needs. Some units ate being renovated. Ours was older, but clean. Beds firm. My only complaint is the soundproofing is terrible. Woken several times by upstairs neighbours. Sounded like bowling balls being dropped above. I would rec a top floor unit. Would stay again.
