“Not a bad place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We stayed here, while visiting Legoland. They are about 8 to 10 mins. away from Legoland, not 5 or 6 mins. as some sites claim. At any rate, the place was clean, bed was comfortable. The in-room microwave and refrigerator was nice and very convinient. Warm cookies in the afternoon was a plus (located at the front desk). They have a pool, but because the weather was too cold, we skipped on this.
The breakfast was good. Lots of choices, from waffles, to egg omelets to seasoned potatoes. They also had sausage, but it looked under-cooked so we passed on this. They had ample seating area and it was spacious. Parking lot is shared w/another hotel on site, but at least they had well-lit areas.
Can't comment on customer service, as I didn't have much interaction w/them. But my husband didn't say anything bad, so I'm sure it's just fine.
Overall, a good place to stay and would come back here again & definitely would recommend to others.
TIP: This place is located close to an airport. At first we were concerned w/the possible noise level associated w/being closet to an airport, but surprisingly it wasn't a problem. But if you're still concerned, request for a room in the far end. Also, this place can be easy to miss, so when you're on Palomar Airport Rd. slow down, as you near the address.

This is a quite new Hampton mid-range property. Our bright attractive well-furnished room had all we needed for our one-night stay. The hotel is about 3 mi. east of the interstate, but just a 5-minute drive. Across the street is the local Palomar airport. Nearer to the freeway are very good chain eateries, and a large collection of premium- outlet of stores. Legoland is nearby as well. Reception was very friendly and welcoming. Our included breakfast was standard and adequate. The price we paid was more than fair.

We recently stayed at this hotel and were very happy with our stay. The rooms are very clean and the staff very friendly. Check in was very smooth and the guy behind the counter had a great personality and made us feel welcome. The breakfast had a good variety so everybody could find something to eat which is not easy to do with kids. The hotel is very close to an airport but you didn't notice it at all unless you were outside in the pool and hot tub, we didn't hear anything in our room. We were a little late checking out but the hotel staff didn't rush us and we got a great deal on our room compared to other rooms in the area. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Rarely do I feel the need to even write a review - never mind such a glowing one and never mind before I've even checked out!

Staff here are amazing, so friendly and helpful, they know who you are and remember your room number.

Rooms lovely, and the workout facilities are like brand new. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough if you are staying in the Carlsbad area for business or pleasure. It was perfect from start to finish.

Room Tip: Rooms are basically all the same.

We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and a portacot; which comfortably fit 2 adults, 2 kids and a baby. The hotel is quite new and the room was in immaculate condition. The beds were particularly comfortable. There was a coin-operated laundry down the end of the hall, which was very much appreciated. The breakfast wasn't the best for anyone watching their calorie intake, but for the good price we paid for our room, I wasn't complaining.

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to Legoland and felt that we got excellent value for our money. It wouldn't be a good choice if you didn't have a car, but with a car it was quite an easy commute, although our GPS did get a bit confused a couple of times. We arrived in the evening and I found out the next day that the hotel is right near an airport (only because I saw the airport in the daylight). We did not hear any airport noise whatsoever during the night or early morning.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again when visiting Legoland. There is nothing overly fancy about it (which we didn't need anyway); but it is new, clean, comfortable, well appointed and good value for a family of 5.

P.S. I got a quick look at a disabled room by chance - they are HUGE. Definitely recommended if you are eligible.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors won't get as much carpark noise

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Last time we stayed at the Homewood Suites just next door to this property and if I can choose, I'd go back to the Suites. We are a family of 4 w/ 2 small kids. Having that full kitchen and separate sleeping quarters really does make a big difference, especially if staying more than 1 nt.

Hampton Inn is nicely kept but it was just too simple. My husband liked the beds better here than at Homewood Suites, I can't remember how it was there but for me at the Inn, it was alright. Nothing special, nothing negative. My biggest complaint would definitely have to be the SUPER THIN walls, and floors. I heard the person next door snoring all night!

There is a medium sized fridge, but it gave a rather annoying buzzing sound. There is also a mini microwave in the room, but we never used it. A big plus, and what made this stay not terrible was their hot breakfast. Served from 6am-10am, it was a good selection of coffee/tea, juice and milk, variety of breads, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and hot selections like egg/simple omelet, cubed potatoes, sausages...no bacon during our stay though. The best part of breakfast for me was their waffles, that you make yourself. Really yummy. I ate a whole bunch of waffles during this stay!

Hot breakfast definitely better at Hampton Inn, but for families staying more than 1 nt, I think Homewood Suites would be better.
