on my must come back list

Located right off the "five" freeway, this Days Inn was priced under a !00.00 for a one night stay. The room was clean,spacious, comfortable, and quiet despite its proximity to the freeway. Front desk staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Enjoyed beach, great shops, and restaurants only minutes away. The breakfast offerings included fresh oranges and apples, make your own belgian waffles, and an assortment of pastries and bagels. Suggest adding peanut butter and a better tea selection beyond the basic regular and decaf.

Close to downtown

The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and large. The Days Inn is a bit far (by foot) from downtown/the beach, but by car it takes just a few minutes to get there.

Decently location.

This was just your ordinary plain jane Days Inn hotel. Very basic but good location as it was a 5 minute drive to the heart of Carlsbad for less than half the price. Staff was very helpful and room was cleaned everyday nicely. the pool is very small and for breakfast only bagels muffins and a waffle maker.

Pleasant Stay

We stayed here to attend an event at Legoland in Carlsbad. It was a great cost-effective alternative to the onsite hotel. The location is quite convenient, 10 minutes to Legoland but it is so close to the highway that the noise level at night was pretty high. Turning on the fan helped. Staff was pleasant.

Weekend GetAway

Hotel was extremely close to the freeway which was across the street. Thank goodness their rooms were soundproof and no freeway noise came in. [...] The beds were very very comfortable and we slept great. Didn't take advantage of the breakfast they offered free but it was more than continental, had waffles I heard.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Strolling at all the shops between Carlsbad Village Drive and Grand was great. Validucci's is the best Italian restaurant I've been to in ages. Delicious lunch, great shopping botiques, very fun and relaxing. Solano Beach is just a few exits south and we enjoyed our day shopping at Cedros Shops.

Bring Your Ear Plugs!

Check-in was fast, plenty of parking and easy to find location. The hotel is across the street from the 5 Freeway and there's no getting around the noise, even with ear plugs. Our room was located on the first floor adjacent to the pool and we could hear every movement from all of our neighbors. The bed was lumpy and hard to sleep on. The bathroom had upgraded marble counter tops and a large tub/shower combo. Breakfast was a BIG let down! There was no meat, sugary cereals, (over cooked) hard-boiled eggs and an awkward eating room. There was a flat screen tv in our room, but we had to ask for two new remotes to change the channel and even then the remote stopped working. The in-room fridge is a good size which was nice. There's a Rite Aid and Vons across the street from the corner gas station, but you won't see it until you're in the parking lot. the hotel provided "crib" is more like a bassinet and our eighteen month child was too big for. We ended up having our child sleeping in the bed with us, which was cramped even for a "king-sized" bed. Luckily we only had a one-night stay, but for the price we just dealt with the issues. We would only recommend staying here if you have a short stay and if you bring ear plugs.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy your own food, drinks, plates/cups and utensils. The front desk isn't very helpful with directions, so bring a local area map to make sure you don't get lost.
