Too noisy, requested for a KING/SLEEPER room, the location of the roomwas under the stairs, i felt that because of the arrangements i was given that particular location which i declined, i ended up with 2 queens, did not discuss the price range do to the reservations placed thru the point system.

Upon check in, I told the staff my mother just passed away, I just flew into town on "very little sleep" and super exhausted. So what do they do? Put me right next to a screaming toddler, next to the highway which didn't quite drown out the noise of the screaming toddler, nor the annoyance of the motorcycles revving into...

This hotel was friendly, clean, and included a nice breakfast with lots of choices. An excellent place to stay for the price. It is very pet friendly with lots of areas to walk one's dog. It is in an excellent location to visit the many places in and around San Diego.

We live in Los Angeles and every time we go to the San Diego area we stay at the La Quinta in Carlsbad Ca. It is centrally located in the North San Diego area. LEGOLAND is really close. Del Mar is only 17 miles away. If you head towards the west there are some small beach towns with great beaches...

We stay almost only at La Quinta Hotels. Always clean, great friendly staff, and always the best value for your dollar. Breakfast makes our food dollars last longer as well. I would highly recommend La Quinta hotels in general, and the Carlsbad hotel in particular.

They have a very good breakfast with plenty of variety including fresh fruit. The rooms are quiet if you get one on the inside. The hotel faces I-5 freeway so that side is very noisey. It has a fairly nice pool lounge/breakfast room and hot-tub.
