The location is irresistible, only less than a mile to the beach! Around the corner is the outlet for an exciting shopping spree. Close by, a shopping Center with a grocery store, a pharmacy and several restaurants. The accommodation is superb and the service is extra-ordinary. It's convenient and comfortable to stay at Carlsbad, La Quinta. It's the best deal... More

We recently stayed two nights in the Carlsbad La Quinta and had a very enjoyable stay. Location was really good for getting to/from the places we visited. The breakfast was varied and plentiful, rooms clean and spacious and staff very friendly and accommodating!

Nice clean room, 2 queen beds, dog friendly (we have 2 small dachshunds). All you need in a room. It is next To the I-5 so slightly noisy but if you keep the windows closed you hardly notice. Nice breakfast, eggs, bacon, fruit yogurt, various breads/bagels, Belgian waffles etc. Close to restaurants and Carlsbad Village. (Short drive)

Love La Quinta. Traveled to Toronto and back with our Yorkie and many other trips. Always welcomed our Yorkie, extra clean accommodations and wonderful fresh breakfast. Beds always comfortable and quality linens. So much value for my money. Our health prevents travel but we stay La Quinta when needed.

We had a good experience. The rooms are somewhat small. And beds a bit tough. But, location is convenient, close to freeway, Oceanside and San Diego. Free breakfast, pool and Jacuzzi. Although the jacuzzi was strong on the chlorine. Recommend if you're only staying for a night or two.

Room was clean, close to the fwy but was still very quiet. I was on the top floor right with the fwy as my view. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We stayed for 2 nights in room 167, a 2 bedroom family unit with bunks and a king size bed. Very reasonably priced, 2 bathrooms with plenty of towels and a self-laundry area.

This place was so clean. The waffle bar and breakfast that was included was awsome and makes starting your day so easy. The beach is less than a mile away and the train station about 3-4 blocks. I don't usually like chains but this one converted me.

Uncomfortable beds, terrible pull out couch and roll away bed springs came through. The room stunk like a dirty rag and the TV did not work, no one came to fix it even thought we complained. I would never stay there again.
