I recently stayed at the West Inn & Suites in Carlsbad during a business trip to North County San Diego and had a great experience! The property is maintained in outstanding condition and the customer service is first-class! I have stayed in Hotels that are listed as Five-Star Hotels and not experienced the level of customer service that I experienced...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017

I read all of the reviews before booking with the West. All of them were true. The West Inn and Suites truly gets service right. They helped me with my golf clubs getting shipped to and from the West, they were fantastic with our 6 year old, and the shuttle service was really helpful. Location is great. Don't be afraid...

I planned a long weekend getaway without the kids, and wanted a place a little different that the standard places. This place hit the mark; clean, the staff was very friendly and seemed genuine in their desire to go above the mark. Good breakfast, and breakfast area, nice pool, shuttle that will take you around, and beach gear should you...

We stayed at this hotel the past 3 nights and I can't say enough about how great it was. This is only the second review I've ever left, if that tells you anything. The hotel was beautiful and very clean. The staff was incredibly friendly. The breakfast was delicious. Our kids loved the heated pool and it was very warm....

Positives, Very friendly staff, clean room, clean hotel, comfortable bed and a quite facility! Close to much of Carlsbad's places to visit and restaurants. We will stay here again. Negatives, The shuttle service could operate later into the evening. Breakfast is so so.

We used Trip Advisor to help us pick a nice hotel to stay while visiting friends in North San Diego County and we hit the jackpot! West Inn and Suites is a jewel in the morass of hotels in the area. We were very lucky to find this family run establishment. The room was spacious and the bed was FABULOUS!...

This hotel deserves 4.5 circles for room and facilities, 5 circles for service, and 3 circles for location - pick what is most important for you. Please be sure you realize you are on the ocean side edge of I-5, which makes for great access but not really the sense of the ocean. You're about a 4 block walk for...

I was really impressed with customer service, not only from the front desk, but every department, maintenance, breakfast staff, cleaning personnel and shuttle driver. The shuttle service was terrific. Chairs and umbrellas were available for use at the beach and the shuttle service takes you to a very convenient access area. You can also go to the flower fields and...
