Recent guest reviews

Check in was fast and easy. Parking was plentiful and breakfast was great.

Very good hotel with professional staff and comfortable accommodations. Will recommend this place to anyone staying in Carlsbad.

Friendly , courteous staff, clean facility, good location, hospitable, breakfast buffet helps get the day started but I wish the coffee had been stronger.

We had four people in our party and there was only one set of towels. I had to request more. The attendant was quick to solve the problem.

Short stay but perfect for what we needed. Clean and comfortable.

Very close to Legoland which is a plus. The first room smelled like bleach upon entering, 2nd room was better but the shower looked dirty and stained.

No lights in parking lot at night front staff didn't really care beds not comfortable we had a slanted toilet

Comfortable stay , very clean , nice staff Close to shopping centers Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends

Nice size, the amenities are good. I like it has shower tub instead of bath tub. The room is clean and location is very close to Legoland and convenience stores.

Awesome we really enjoyed I will definitely recommend to anyone

The hotel was very clean which is a priority for me. Our room was spacious but they did place us in a wheelchair accessible room, I'm not sure why. The breakfast was what you would expect with a continental breakfast and was always stocked.

We had a great time! The hotel was very close to Legoland so getting around was great. We didn't expect them to clean the room the first night but we came back and it was spotless anything that was left out they put in plain view for when we returned. After a long day at lego land it was great to come back to a clean room. The breakfast was convenient we didn't have to spend extra money or make an extra stop with a toddler excited to get going. Parking was a bit crowded but overall it gets a ten.

The hotel was clean and staff very friendly and helpful. There was a strange smell in the hallways but the room itself was fine. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

I really holiday inn express with free breakfast and nice service. Very clean and comfortable beds

The room was on third floor.door to elevator very heavy to hold open.breakfast was awful.noise in room loud all night.couldn't get my fifty dollars back finally called my card and they manually helped me.hotel staff didn't answer questions well and hard to find.

Fire alarm went off at 1:30am! Other than that it was a great stay. We had a self inflicted problem with our reservation and Kandyce from the front desk was exceptionally helpful. She even called the next day to make sure we were all on the same page. This is a Holiday Inn?! Thank you Kandyce. Oh, BTW, the a/c was not very effective at cooling down the room.

Great hotel, very modern and staff were very friendly. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
