Close to everything families with children can do for fun in the San Diego area. Our room was spacious and relaxing. There's also a wonderful restaurant on the property for all your meals. Definitely a fun place! We had one issue with our room that Gene, the "fixit specialist" took care of right away.

My 8 year old daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights while we visited LEGOLAND and the surrounding area. Legoland was walking distance (approx .25 mile). The hotel was beautiful! The extra activities provided for guests (especially children) were awesome! There are separate pools and spas for adults and families with children. There is a game room for kids...

I live in East County San Diego and this is my stay-cation hotel of choice. I've staid here at a few different times of the year and every time is great but I personally enjoy the fall time here. All the kids are back in school and the pool is quiet and perfect. The location of this hotel is hard...

My husband and I spent a weekend here for our family reunion. Our room was very nice, it was clean, well decorated and in great shape. We had a family barbecue on the grass by the family pool and a family dinner in the ball room. All of the facilities were very nice and the food was good.

We purchased a 3 bedroom and 2 bath fixed week condo with ocean view , which by the way, had a large walk in shower in master bathroom in 2003.

We have been trying to get into this location for years and are finally here! We were concerned that out expectations might be too much and we would be disappointed, however, we are certainly not dissapointed at all. In Carlsbad, during high season and althought the resort is booked full, we are not feeling any of the usual issues with...
