I have stayed at La Quinta before and was not overly impressed. However, I am currently staying at this location and I have to say that I am extremely satisfied!! I have not have ONE concern or problem and I plan to stay here the whole week on a work trip. The exterior of the hotel is not fancy, but it is kept up well. Parking and check in is very convenient, the heated pool and hot tub is simple, but very nicely maintained. Check in was less than 30 seconds and the staff has been amazingly friendly. The room is large, recently updated and very clean! Beds are comfy, and the a/c works very well. The window opens all the way and has a nice screen to allow the ocean breeze in. The housekeeping staff does an amazing job DAILY!!! The room is fully cleaned, daily! Breakfast is a limited continental breakfast, but is clean, fresh, and easy. Honestly, this hotel is as good as any larger hotel chain that costs double the price. I am really enjoying my stay! Thank you!
La Quinta advertises the location as San Diego Carlsbad. Carlsbad-close? Yes,-either by freeway or the more scenic local road in from of the Inn. San Diego-close? Not really. The drive is pleasant but it's quite a distance, and in morning or evening rush hour traffic it can be grueling. So whether the location is excellent or terrible for you depends upon how fare afield from Carlsbad you plan to roam.
We find nothing not to like about the Inn, itself. La Quinta is our "go to" choice of chains whenever there's an option, and this one is "above average" in the chain. We were there for a long weekend a few months ago and plan to go back next month. We don't ordinarily like to stay in the same hotel twice in a row, just to get a change of scenery. There are other options in Carlsbad, so returning to La Quinta is a good recommendation.
We've stayed here a number of times and we're always pleased with the room (King Suite has 2 baths), the cleanliness of the property and the prompt and pleasant service by the staff. Although our room was very close to the highway it was simply "white noise" (never a problem). The breakfast is more than adequate with basically all you need to start the day
(and surprisingly good coffee). All in all this is an excellent value and we'll definitely be back!!
The hotel was well located for my purposes. The service really was lacking. The toilet backed up and when I called down to the desk the best the young man could do was offer a plunger. Really!! I can do that at home but I don't expect to be doing that at a hotel of quality.
I've stayed at La Quinta before so I had expectations as to their morning breakfast but found that what they serve in Burlingame is not what they serve in Carlsbad. The coffee was weak and the bagels were so so. Except for waffles that's all they had in terms of something substantial, and they even ran out of bananas on a Sunday morning.
But for the location, the price and a decent place to sleep there's not much more that can be said for this La Quinta.
Excellent location, clean and good service
The area located it is very nice and close to the beach and good restaurants.
It is close to Legoland, and Also close to premium outlet which is very convenient.
