Room was clean, Heating unit very loud, restroom fan loud, the hotel was undergoing some updating so there was construction being done. The breakfast was great. Clean place to eat it. We had our 9 pound pom. The parking lot is huge and a great place to walk and play with the dog. We would stay here again and recommend...

My room was perfectly clean and fresh, nicely appointed with mini-fridge and microwave, everything in order, bed comfy, not too hard and not all saggy and broken down, everything working perfectly. All exactly as advertised. Good location -- very convenient to beaches and tourist attractions, and an easy drive to Carlsbad Village. I didn't use the pool. Breakfast was fine...
