I largely agree with many of the other reviews - the room is clean and big, there is a free hot breakfast, easy to get DVD movies and the hotel is a 4 minute drive from both the legoland and the beach. It is also just off I-5 so it is supereasy to jump on and off the highway.
But the hotel is literally next to a gas station on one side and the coaster train station on the other side. I was woken up a couple of times by the horn of the train as it passed through the area and the train runs through at least every hour until 10 pm.
So if you are going to Carlsbad just to hang out at Legoland, I recommend staying at one of the hotels near legoland. We like the Grand Pacific Palisades - you can get huge 2 bedroom suites for nearly the same price that we paid at the West Inn. The rooms and amenities are not nearly as nice, but you can walk to Legoland and it is quiet!
