    Very good

    I love the kids areas--pool-playground and arcade. The Brewery was great too!! I would come and stay again if I could be sure that my room would be cleaned daily. I also must say the staff was great always smiling and friendly never did your staff pass me without saying Good Morning or hello.

    I was very dissappointed with house keeping my room was not done for three days. And when I complained my bed was done but again the bathroom was ignored. This happened two times. I stayed for six nights and The first night was the only time my room was truely cleaned.

    Superb

    Everything was brand new, the painting, the carpet and the pillows were very clean and beautifull.

    Some members of the staff, didnt treat me as I expected to be. Its like just because I wasnt one of those fancy rich customers, they didnt gave me enough attention. Probably if I had a Ferrarri and if I was some important rich guy, they would have treated me better.

    Fabulous

    We stayed there January 15-17 and the adult pool was heated and our kids loved it. The children's pool was out of service when we got there.

    There was a strong chemical odor in the hallway, especially by our room. I asked to be moved and we were moved to another area. There still was an odor, but not as strong.

    The location was nice, an easy walk to Lego land. The hotel itself was a disappointment though. Lots of things in disrepair, they put us in a room we had not reserved with an old, broken hide-a-bed. I had to wait forever to see a manager, along with several other unhappy people, to get a room change. The room we ended up staying in had several small problems which added up by the end of our stay. I would not stay there again, I'd go to the Sheridan.

    The location right next to Legoland can't be beat. Less than 5 min walk to the front gates and it saved the $15 per day parking fee at Legoland. The family pool area is very good for younger kids. Ours were 8 and 10 and they really enjoyed the pool.

    Front desk staff were very vague about check-in info. Wrong directions on how to get to our room. We found out after we got to our room that the events coordinator who everyone speaks to during the check-in procedure was supposed to give us our pool towels but didn't.

    Superb

    The pools were great and we enjoyed the game room with free games! Loved that there was a brew pub in the parking lot. Very clean and people were friendly.

    It may sound silly but we needed more electical plug ins! Had to charge our phones in the bathroom. Also, room had great coffee maker but stocked with decafe but not enough regular. The maid did not empty our trash on the second night so trash overflowed. We did not have a book in our room with numbers, menu, or pool info even after we asked for it. We checked in at 7:00pm and the room was not ready. The guy checking us in said he would remove the resort fees off our stay, $60 a night but this did not show on our bill. The room and hotel really was nice, but just a few small problems.

    Staff was very friendly and worked extremely well when there was a problem. Nice pool and water park for kids.

    Loud doors and would not close all the way unless pushed or pulled hard. Room smelled like chemical after being cleaned, had to change rooms. The kids play area was nice, but looked like it could be updated/changed.

    Good location just off Interstate 5 to visit customers in the Carlsbad area. Underground parking available to guests.

    Hotel is orientated towards families and longer stays - only one restaurant on site (which is ok).
