We have been to the Carlsbad area many times to go to Legoland and stayed at the Grand Pacific Palisades previously and been disappointed on many levels. This time we did our homework and read the reviews for West Inn & Suites. It was a wonderful change! We stayed in a King Suite, which has one king size bed and a separate area with a sofa bed, tables, desk & chair. It also has a very nice bathroom with Aveda products, a wet bar with a "pod" type coffee and tea maker, excellent large coffee mugs, microwave and fridge. The room had two televisions and plenty of storage. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. Our 12 year-old said the sofa bed was the most comfortable sofa bed he'd slept in, and he's had to sleep in many over the years during our travels, so that says a lot.
We liked having laundry facilities available that had a new, energy efficient washer and dryer, not the older, top loading kind you find in most hotels. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet, but being vegetarians, we would have liked to have had some more choices, like organic whole grain breads, organic yogurt, trans fat free peanut butter, nuts and organic granola to add to the selections. It seems the choices of bacon, sausage, eggs and waffles did not match the luxury and quality of the rest of the hotel and all its details. I suppose they would have to raise the price for the rooms then though as the breakfast was included. The AAA price is an excellent deal as it is for this great property. We will stay there again on our next trip.
