The staff was beyond friendly and great, very helpful. Best staff i have ever came across to go above and beyond to accommodate our needs.

Was surprised at the additional $75 a night for damage deposit. But was fine for Legoland visit with the kids. Hot tub not very hot, but pool was nice.

Clean, friendly staff great coffee and good value for the price.

First of all the hotel charges a $75 security fee per night on top of your regular reservation. The $150 was withdrawn immediately from my bank and will not be credited back for 3 days. The room was old, musty & terrible bed.

The staff is wonderful! Accommodations are absolutely no frills, outlets & usb/outlet lights are scarce/ unavailable respectively. There were no extra pillows available (which flatten if your head weighs more than a feather.) Also I missed that there is no breakfast while booking. If you are looking for an affordable clean,quiet place to lay your head with no frills this is your place and it’s exactly what we needed. Check in and out as well as other workers around the hotel are wonderful. I could not have been more pleased with them

The mini refrigerator wasn't on when I arrived so I couldn't use it for several hours. This was disappointing since I had medications that needed to be refrigerated. Upon check out I noticed the smoke detector was covered in plastic so I'm glad there wasn't a fire.

Very run down property. Disappointed

Old and outdated building.

The location is very good- across from the outlets and adjacent to the Windmill food hall made it convenient, and an easy drive to the beach, the Village and next door to King’s Fish House.. all good things. Good parking in front of our room, a little noisy as far as slamming doors at all hours tho. No housekeeping was kind of a bummer as we stayed 4 nights and clean sheets would have been nice. The shower was horrible with low pressure. Overall- it was nice to get away and we enjoyed perfect weather!

beds were comfy, room was clean. it was overall a relaxing stay with no issues. This place is walking distance to the Flower Fields and to the outlet mall. So much convenience just across the street.

Stairs only to second floor. Room was partially furnished

The air conditioner is weak, their is no microwave, nothing special

Easy access to everything

Palomar Airport Road Carlsbad CA
