Lovely, very clean and well kept hotel. The staff was very efficient and extremely friendly. The included buffet breakfast was delicious as were the milk and cookies before bed. The location was great as we wanted to be close enough to visit San Diego easily but also not too far from LA. Overall a fantastic experience and I highly recommend...

We were at West Inn in December 2016 and this place could not have been any better. We had the 2 king suite which was a huge room with a separate sitting area. The sitting area had a flat-screen TV, coffee table, couch and a small dining table and it was not crowded at all. There was also a flat...

I read all of the reviews before booking with the West. All of them were true. The West Inn and Suites truly gets service right. They helped me with my golf clubs getting shipped to and from the West, they were fantastic with our 6 year old, and the shuttle service was really helpful. Location is great. Don't be afraid...

I have stayed here twice now, both times for business purposes. Each day has been absolutely fantastic. The team here is welcoming and friendly. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. They go above and beyond to make sure you are as comfortable and as satisfied as possible. Great stay. Will definitely be coming back.

I can understand why the West Inn is the top rated hotel in Carlsbad. It is wonderful! We spent 3 nights here while on vacation. It all started with a very warm welcome at the front desk. Did much more than just check us in -- told us about the 2 restaurants on the property, the Thursday night wine/beer tasting,...

Had a business meeting nearby and decided to stay at West Inn & Suites. It was easy to get to, parking was uncomplicated, the lobby and the staff were excellent, room was wonderfully designed and quiet, pool was heated and hot tub was great. Keep in mind this is right off of the freeway so the pool is quite noisy,...

So I was here for the Carlsbad Half and it was a great spot. The lovely lady that drove the shuttle was also the one who welcomed me to the hotel. She was very kind. They provided drop off service and pick up at the start and finish line. It was soooo nice to not have to worry about driving...

We stayed here over Christmas weekend for our Legoland vacation and had a wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful hotel and awesome staff. We stayed in a king suite - the beds were so comfy and we also had a small refrigerator and microwave. The housekeeping staff was so attentive. They left a basket of towels/soaps...

My wife and I annually drive to Carlsbad on New Years eve to stay overnight to attend a family gathering on New Year's day.
