Days Inn Carlsbad

Recent guest reviews

Everything was perfect but too much highway noise!

Near highway...a little noisy, request room away from highway.

Clean rooms, fresh linen, good wi fi. Overall very positive.

We chose this hotel because it is very close to Legoland. We enjoyed the hotel especially the friendly staff. If I had to say something unfavorable it would only be the noise from the nearby I-5 freeway which was very loud but the rooms are well soundproof and comfortable.

I was very pleased with the room, treatment by staff and amenities. The only negative was the location near the freeway.

Nice motel and good location. Try to get a room in the back of the motel away from freeway noice.

The hotel was nice I was just disappointed with someone calling on me for a noise complaint when I was walking into my room from being out and about. Housekeeping staff was outstanding and very polite!!

Great staff and very clean. Perfect price for a Carlsbad stay.

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.

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.

After a long day at Legoland we arrived at the hotel and found it was clean and comfortable for the price I paid. Location was great and the front desk was very attentive.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The facility is surrounded by a security fence, but the gates are left open. We weren't sure how that added any security. The room was large and nice. The pool was small but warm. It was very convenient to the freeway, but no dining options very close.

room is smaller than expect. front desk very friendy and helpful.

I arrived at 1:30 PM, 30 minutes before check in and i was reminded 4 times by the front desk clerk how inconvenient I was and that they needed time to have the room clean even before he checked if the room was ready. it ended up being ready so his comments were unnecessary

Nice and clean, great continental breakfast. Loved it!

Arrived late due to 6 hour delay from San Diego Airport. The staff at hotel held my rooom for me! A great comfort in that. Enjoyed the bed and soft pillows.
