Location. And we always like a hotel that offers breakfast, it helps get your busy day started. Rooms were clean, the hallway carpets needed some work.
Dirty Towels, dirty bed, and smell like 'near homeless person' Just location, nothing else worth to stay.
They charged my card three time and almost left me with NO MONEY. Honestly I would never stay there again They charged my card three time and almost left me with NO MONEY. Honestly I would never stay there again
Location rooms very spacious The fact the i stayed for two nights first morning went to get breakfast and the manager asked for my name and room number before walking in the breakfast area. She only ask me. Later on i find out the she said i came from a different hotel. To get food
Location was great. Not too far off the freeway and great shopping centers near by. Staff made it very easy to check in but not friendly. Room smelt like weed when we first walked in. Closet door was broken so we couldn't use it. Beds where ok. I guess I got what I paid for. Glad I just stayed for one night.
Homeless people are in the hallway to get soda from the vending machine. This is unsafe practice and the hallway door does not close.
I liked how close it was to many eateries and shopping areas as well as Camp Pendleton. There was a horrid smell of mildew once u walked in the hallways. There was a gross amount of dust on top of the tv stand. We found m and ms next to our bed that never got picked up during our stay.
Loved the spa

close to Legoland enough I called the hotel a month before to arrange a two-bed room. The front desk said it's fine and did not mention any surcharge. However, later when we check in, the front desk asked us to pay a surcharge. It's waived later, but still annoying.
The room was comfy and big enough for our needs. The breakfast was substantial and tasty. The location was excellent. We had a squeaky air conditioner in our room that was annoying and the hallway floors and stairwell were in need of cleaning. The pool was disappointingly small...
Helpful front desk clerk Breakfast never varied.
Loved the location and the friendly staff. Nice clean and newly remodeled rooms. I wish they would include breakfast
Staff was very friendly and accomodating. had several problems with key card not working. Had to have front desk re-set it several times and trade in cards that were not working (inconvenience)
Room location, no suspicious people around. Cars are easily visible from room. We rented a king size bed room, it was clean and did not smell. It was perfect for crashing after a long day at Legoland. The water pressure. What should have been a two minute shower turned into a 15 minute + shower because the pressure was that weak. Had to use my cell phone internet because the hotel internet appeared to not be working. I was still able to get my work done while may family enjoyed the TV so I am happy.
Great location walking distance to Oceanside Pier. Very clean and comfortable. Didn't have Ocean view.
Location was great. close to freeway and Camp Pendleton Main entrance. Noise from freeway was a problem if outside, but not inside the room. The heat/air conditioner was so high on the wall that I needed to stand on a chair to even see the controls.
The location was great. The hotel was near some really good restaurants and close to the amusement park and mission we visited. The view of the ocean was good too. The internet access was poor, not sure if that was just the area of the hotel our room was located or not, and breakfast could have had a bit more to it.
pool toilet broken, never got fix, room dirty, loud people next door
The staff were very, very nice. Especially the maintenance and housekeeping staff! The entire facility looked run-down and the room we paid for seemed sterile. Meaning the room appeared to have had the bare necessities invested in it. The sheets felt like they had been washed and dried in sand. I ran my hand across the top and between the sheets and it felt like sand. Maybe it was just soap that didn't get washed out but it wasn't comfortable to sleep on. The location felt industrialized and they have you sign an agreement at check-in agreeing that the motel isn't responsible for lost or stolen items. It made me wonder how safe the area is and if the staff themselves are honest as they are the only ones who should have access to the rooms. I will pay more to stay more than one night somewhere else.
Beaches Hotel upstaires
Location to the beach while being very affordable. Best view for being off ocean. Breakfast could have been offered for a longer period of time. It was only served until 930.
The hotel was clean & confortable, the front desk person was very pleasant and helpful. n/a
Location and cleanliness. View from the sun deck. We had two double beds which were too narrow to share. The breakfast was a bit simple and could have been alot more comfortable with normail sized plates instead of the litte plastic plates which forced you too juggle everything. Coffee was terrrrible. Staff could have been more friendly.
I can best describe this Lodge as "home like". The amenities and ambiance are so pleasant that my wife and I decided it would be a good place to spend a week at some point in the future. We had a great stay and will definitely return. The continental breakfast is well presented and met our needs nicely. The location of the Lodge is great, across the street from the beach and near quaint shopping and restaurants.
proximity to beach/restaurants
It was great. Walking distance to several nice restaurants; ocean and beach were across the street. n/a
My expectations were well met - a basic hotel across the street from the beach, within walking distance to town shops and restaurants.
location right across the street from the beach and able to walk to shops, resutrants etc.; comfortable beds; rooms very clean; it was nice to have continental breakfast in the mornings and look out over the ocean the shower was awful- poor water pressure and it was either cold or scalding
Close to the beach, nice continental breakfast, close to good restaurants and shopping. parking in carport was very narrow hard to unload luggage and get out of car.
the view, quietness and no smoking facility
Very comfortable, clean, inviting, private, and safe. That there wasn't even a bench for a smoker to sit on when they smoked on the sidewalk.
Good enough for one night A little expensive for during the week
The location suited my needs because I was there for the Carlsbad Half Marathon. It was walking distance (less than a mile) to the start line so it was nice not to have to deal with parking. The front desk staff was very friendly and informative. The hotel accommodates race participants by allowing a later checkout, which was so nice to be able to shower and clean up after the run. The room was pretty clean. My room was on the end on the second floor and there was a bit of noise from the staircase that was right across the hall. I could hear people stomping around what seemed like upstairs but could have been from the staircase. The hotel is also just off Highway 78, so there is some noise from that. I would recommend using earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The towels were a bit scratchy, which I can tolerate. There was one towel that had a not one, but two hairs on it, which I can't tolerate.
Me alojé en el hotel hace dos años. Entonces las sábanas y colchas eran regulares, conexión a Internet irregular, las alfombras sucias y el baño, también. Me pareció que por lo que pagué entonces ( $69) el alojamiento debía ser más o menos de unas tres estrellas. Esta vez he visto una mejora en la capacidad y la comodidad del hotel. La piscina funciona bien y tiene zona de hidromasaje. Es limpia. El baño tiene suelo con calefacción; fue mi favorito. El internet funciona a la primera y la cama es nueva con sábanas bonitas y limpias. En general, una buena estancia y volveré a alojarme allí si el precio sigue siendo el mismo. Las alfombras todavía necesitan un poco de trabajo y la primera noche que pasamos allí la línea de tratamiento de aguas residuales de la planta de arriba se oía pasar detrás de nuestro lavabo del baño. No es el mejor olor a mitad de la noche.
Woke up to 3 large cock roaches by the tv, carpet completely filthy, shower tub gray from filth.
Beds are supper comfy bath room was very pretty and clean
Everything you need as an adult. Casino, easy access on and off freeway, a variety of places to eat out at and to buy odds and ends ( walmart , el super, 99 cent store ect..) plus a 24 hour mexican restraunt, and convenient stores The grounds outside the motel rooms are a bit dirty well a bit worn out. Landscaping what little there is, it could look better, walkways could use a good pressure washing every now and then.
Check in was an hour late and rooms were filthy. The next day the water was turned off for hours so me and my young children had to rinse off the beach sand in the pool and go to dinner smelling like the beach!!!!! Staff is very unprofessional and didn't seem to care. When they did "clean the room" it looked like it took them 5 minutes to clean. This is a horrible hotel and worst experience I had ever had. I will never again stay in a Travelodge hotel!!!!
Good location. rooms are not clean, the continental breakfast is short of supplies.
They tried to put me in a smoking room, which would have set off my allergies. Room I ended up in was in a construction and paint zone. Some fumes were smelt. Under construction, was woken up by loud banging at 08:20 AM.
Large, great kitchen and an nice easy-chair
Although the Extended Stay America brand is not one of favorite hotel chains this one had been completely renovated and would qualify as an exceptional 2-1/2 star hotel for any brand. We would make it a point to stay there again when in the area. We were told that the outdoor pool was heated but it was not.

The staff were attentive to our needs. The location is very close to Legoland. I booked a non-smoking room and was given a smoking room. The hotel did not have a non smoking room until the 2nd night of our stay. Some minor maintenance issues such as the toilet seat of the first room was loose and the towel bar fell down.
I did not expect to have a kitchenette room. I did not know this hotel carried them. But, I was overjoyed that I did get one!!! My son has a very selective pallet for food, so I was able to make him anything that he needed in the room that I was given.
Staff was friendly enough to discount after the mishap we had we booked a non smoking room and received a smoking room, the room reaked of smoke as well as the entire hallway we stayed in.

Our room had a kitchenette which was nice. Room was clean, love the idea of no carpet, it helps the room feel cleaner. However, there were no kitchen goods, i.e. pots, pans, utensils, cups, plates, etc. You could get these items but I think there was a charge associated with it.

Staff was exceptionally nice. Very close to the beach. Great stay!!!!
Location The person at the Front Desk rude and a liar he charged more than the Online Rate as I had agreed.
even though it is not walking distance from the local downtown Carlsbad area I really enjoyed the quiet and tranquility of the location. I can honestly say all my needs were met with the staff actually going above and beyond it is definitely a Stay again location I've currently stayed there twice and I am rather concerned over the fact that both times I was put in a specific room the first time the room was under maintenance so I was put in a different room the second time the room is available and I was put in it I kept hearing rambling in the pipes underneath the sink . some might say that's just a coincidence but I am truly curious to Why
Location is hard to beat. It is within a short, 5-10 min, drive of everything Carlsbad has to offer - from the beach, to Legoland, to the downtown area. All staff were friendly and accommodating and the price was nearly right but could have been better considering the condition of those carpets! The carpets were EXTREMELY dirty and turned our feet black after every shower. Sandals were always needed to avoid this, which can be difficult with children. Please regularly shampoo your carpets if not planning to install new carpet every few years!
Our maid was very attentive and she did a good job of giving us clean bed sheets and having the towels placed perfectly. There were bugs. I kind of expected it and I'm not really a squirmish person anyway,I know California has a lot of bugs but when I first walked into the room I had to kill two spiders. One rather large one on the wall and the other on the carpet. I then proceeded to check the corners because that's usually where you find webs and there was a roach? Type insect that was already dead. Upon inspecting the wall I also noticed the remains of a spider someone else had killed. The shower handle leaked water and we noticed ants crawling around the shower walls. Also we stayed in room 112 and our door just stopped working. Not even the master key opened it, the manager had to break in through the window and then change the batteries which still didn't solve the problem so a technician had to come in the next morning. Over all for the price it wasn't a horrible place to stay. It felt clean but never again.
carpet was a mess, missing light bulbs, limited pillows and towels. Management could use a lesson or two on customer service
This hotel was close to my family, shopping and the beach.
Great price, great location! 10 minute drive from Legoland! Spacious room! Decent breakfast enough to get you through the morning, but then you'll be starving by lunch time. Waffles, cereal, toast, fruits, simple breakfast.
Nice room noisy
Worth the money u paid-affordable.Very spacious for a couple.And even if u have a kid below 16 it's still good. Yes,I don't like the location.It's close to the freeway and it's so noisy with all the vehicles passing by.I requested for a non-smoking room but when I used the napkins it smells smoke.They did not provide us with new box of napkins.But if Yuit looking for affordable place,this is recommendable.
The accommodation was very good, however the location was poor, the pool was unusable as there was work going on in the surrounding area and construction workers were ever present pool area, as this was almost on top of a busy roadway
location because close to lego land
location Had pizza from room service - came quickly but was burnt
I felt I was being nickled and dimed everywhere at this hotel. Charges for parking and no fridge in the room. The pool was overheated. There was nothing special about this hotel.
Location. Cleanliness. Cookies. Hot tub.
How close it was to the beach and the little restaurant/bar downstairs. Access to the beach was not good. Even though it was right across the street from the beach and the cross walk was great, there were no stairs down to the beach. One has to walk a ways down and climb down some rocks or a steep slippery path to access the beach. Stairs would easily remedy this situation.
`the hotel is better than others I have experienced in the chain, staff was very helpful, place is clean and nicely decorated Really nothing to complain about
Location,location,location!! I have stayed many times at this Hilton and we love it from proximity to the beach and Carlsbad Village. Heated pool and outdoors movie night are great too! Super nice and friendly staff. $12 fee for parking
The property overall is quite noisy from the inside guest traffic not outside street traffic. Whenever closeby guests move around, take showers or walk outside the rooms, we heard pretty much everything. It seems the property us quite old and does not have guest noise cancellation of any form. Thank you.
Can't beat the location.
The location across the street from the beach, near Carlsbad Village, and Legoland was great. Nice size rooms. The Rec room, in-room DVD players, and DVD library are great for families. Free parking, wifi, and breakfast. Tub and shower tile a little dated. The beds and bedding were not as comfortable as other hotels.
Location. Large rooms. Nice amenities. Cockroaches in bathrooms by pool area. Should provide easier access to beach towels.
unbeatable location the staff was not particularly friendly, breakfast was poor. They are going to renovate it...
I have stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn several times and have always been happy with the staff and service. The rooms are large and well appointed. The location is great as it is on the beach with most rooms having full, unobstructed views of the beach and Pacific Ocean. It is also only a block away from very nice restaurants and shops. No street noise, just the sound of the surf.
Directly on the ocean, nice balconey, large, modern rooms pricing of accomendations was confusing
location/on the beach room 31 was very noisey, had trouble sleeping due to noise above. I believe the room is directly underneath hotel office and with hardwood floors could hear every footstep.
Loved being right on the icean and watching sunsets and hearing surf right out of our room. Appreciated continental breakfast. Lovely accomodations. Might be a little difficult for handicapped person to get around, however. The Internet service kept booting me off. My husband could not talk on his iphone (sprint) unless he went out in front of the hotel. I guess Carlsbad limits cell towers.
loved being right on the beach, wish my room had a better view. loved the town, carlsbad village, could walk to dinner. Very laid back not the usual oceanfront scene, more of a small town feel. I asked the front desk about switching the last night to a room with a better view, the hotel seems pretty empty because it was a tuesday, all they offered was a large room with 2 king beds at twice the rate of my current room. Just wanted a balcony onto the ocean.
They offered beach side rooms and the breakfast was great!!!
We liked that it was literally right on the beach. It also had a nice pool area and an outdoor shower to get sand off. The room was spacious and had a beautiful fully-tiled shower. The breakfasts were also very good and had a lot of variety (fresh fruit, hot/cold cereal, yogurt, breads, bagels, pastries, boiled eggs, coffee, tea, juices). The breakfast room has a great view and outdoor spaces. The rate seems a bit steep, particularly for a family with children, since they charge extra for each person.
I liked: Friendly, helpful staff Location on the beach Large attractive room with king bed Pool & beach facing room view Large fancy bathroom Room fridge Wine glasses and corkscrew provided Very close parking Continental breakfast buffet and ample seating Beach equipment loan I didn't like: Area traffic Steep, narrow stairways High price (well, it was right on the beach!)
read books. noise from upstair in the morning.
Location and able to walk through town without having to drive all the time. No
Very kid-friendly and the proximity to Legoland was nice. The staff were generally pretty helpful. The gym had a good selection of equipment. For the price, the room that we had was sub-par. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the shower was pretty run-down. Although some of the gym equipment had televisions built in, there was limited volume despite the supplying of headphones. Couldn't really hear anything while running on the treadmill.
Room was spacious and clean, shower was great, location was great. I was woken up by housekeeping in the morning on the day I checked out- I would have liked to sleep in! And I don't like the hidden "resort fee".
