West Inn & Suites Carlsbad
Travel Blogs from Carlsbad
Today we left the Orchid Suites in Hollywood and set out for Carlsbad. Just as well as I don't think the bank account needed another hit of late night shopping. We were really impressed with the Orchid suites, a lovely small hotel in a fantastic location. First stop this morning was Santa Monica again. This time to chase some Nikes that Gracie …
Am so very tired, too tired to type...spent the day at Legoland, almost no queues all day which was great, but lots and lots of walking.
Sunny day there, but not too hot and not too cold either - I think we picked the perfect day for it.
J&K enjoyed the roller coasters there but they were very tame, nowhere near as scary as …
We had great intentions today of getting packed up early and hitting the road, but with Janine cooking us an excellent breakfast, it just seemed easier to take it nice and slow.
After breakfast it was time to start the mission of loading up the car with our 8 suitcases and carry-on bags. Well we did come with 4 suitcases, so 8 is only 100 …
... in a big stinky machine. We went on lots more rides and walked around a lot and it was very hot.
The park closed at 5pm and everyone either headed home or back to the hotel we went back put our swimmers on and Dad took us down to the pool. There were floating lego bricks in the pool you could put together. They had teenage lifeguards watching all the kids in the pool and they blew their whistles at you if you did something wrong, Dad ...
... and tend to make excellent photographic subject matter (as evidenced by the quantity of photographs I took today). If you're a fan of plants and flowers this is a great place to be, for colour and greenery abound. From huge agave cactus to bougainvillea, birds of paradise, lilies, trees, vines, and everything in between. Brilliant pinks, purples, whites, yellows and oranges are in full view. I love it. Colourful peacocks and peahens roam the property as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews West Inn & Suites Carlsbad
We stayed at the West Inn on 8/16 and 8/17. I can't say enough good about this place. From the super comfy beds, to the Flat screen TV and DVD Player in room, microwave, bar sink and mini fridge, our double king room had everything we needed and more.
Just spent an overnight trip at the hotel with a day trip to Legoland. I can't say enough about the friendly staff and 3 month new facility. The place is immaculate and a very comfortable decor. Nothing but friendly staff including a free shuttle to and from Legoland.
This is a wonderful family oriented hotel with a wonderful full breakfast buffet as well.
P.S. Bring the popcorn because there is a microwave in the room along with an empty ice cold refrigerator to stash some extra food. No need to empty those useless bar frigerators.
Thank you West Inn!
Loved It! Very Clean and Comfortable!
We stayed here over 4th of July and it was awesome. Two king beds and a flat screen TV. The breakfasts were nice and hot with plenty of variety to fit everyone from the meat eater to the morning "lite" eater.
Their complimentary shampoo's and soaps are great too!
We stayed at the West Inn and Suites for 4 nights and would definitely stay there again. Yes, the location is between the freeway and the railroad tracks but 3 out of the 4 of us didn't hear the trains at all and that 1 person just barely heard it. All 4 of us didn't hear any of the freeway noise. We stayed in a deluxe double king room and it was spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 kids. We had a room on the first floor and noticed immediately the high ceilings. The beds, linens, and towels were so comfortable and obviously high quality. The beds were Simmons Beautyrest Exceptionales. Definitely the best sleep we've ever had in a hotel. The room was immaculate.
We stayed there for 3 nights during our visit to the beach with our two young girls. The rooms are very clean and obviously in great shape considering the hotel is only 2 months old. The king beds are a treat considering we stayed the previous nights 4 nights in an Embassy Suites with two double beds.
We stayed at the hotel's Double King Suites for our recent visit to Legoland, and we were VERY impressed by how wonderful our stay was! The room size was very generous for 4 little rascals to roam around, the king-size beds are SOOOOO comfortable, and the pull-out sofa bed was very good too! Amenities include 2 wide-screen TVs & DVD players, refrigerator and microwave, and AVEDA toiletries! AND warm cookies and milk in the lobby in the evenings, and the cookies are freshly baked and sooo yummy! Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Complimentary full breakfast was delicious, with scrambled eggs, bacons, variety of pastries/bread, 3 kinds of cereals, variety of yogurt and fruit juices, and EXCELLENT coffee.
Great Place To Stay
This hotel was very, very nice. We stayed in the smallest of the rooms but it we were very comfortable with five in the room. The staff was wonderful, they provied a shuttle to and from Legoland and other Carlsbad locations. The free morning breakfast was the nicest I have seen at a hotel/motel. The hotel has a business center, conference area, meeting rooms, laundry, arcade and pool/hot tub. I would defintely stay here again when visiting Southern California. And, the staff was superb.
Just returned from 1 night at this wonderful Hotel. Wish I would have stayed longer. I think it is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Brand New!! The beds were so comfy. The staff was absolutley great. Breakfast was very tasty. Everything was top of the line!! Hope to get the chance to return some day! Thanks!
It was great.
My wife, 5 year old and 18 month old stayed 2 nights during a week long Southern California trip. It was the best hotel we stayed at hands down. It is one of the nicest that I have ever stayed at. The rooms were very clean and nice, very large, beds were great, tvs were awesome, had dvd players too. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. I actually felt special here, and not just like another guest. The pool was beautiful, breakfasts were nice, it was all good. The location is not right by the water, but close enough to drive or walk to, it is also very close to I-5 and other attractions. If I ever make it back to Carlsbad I will definately stay here again.
