Motel 6 Carlsbad East
Ranked #34 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Reviewed 27 July 2005

Stayed at the Red Roof Inn of Carlsbad on July 21st through 25th. Enjoyed our stay, the rooms were on the small side but were very clean. The bathroom was part of the room, with the exception of the shower and toilet, and was clean as well. The hotel is conveniently located on the North side of the I5 and is very convenient to San Diego as well as the Carlsbad beaches and town center. The only problem that we encountered was the key cards continually did not work, each night of our stay we had to go to the front office so that they could be re-coded. Fortunately our room was only a slight walk from the front office so it was really not that big of a deal. This is definitely a "no frills" motel so if you're expecting something fancy you will be disappointed. If you go in with an open mind and only need a clean room to rest at night then this could be the place for you. I would definitely stay at this RR again.

Stayed here one night after a full day at Legoland. The hotel is real easy access to legoland, and is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is really small, but was clean. They have a small pool, but we checked in too late to enjoy it.

I stayed at this property six months or so ago, when it was a Motel 6 and cost $42.99 a night. They were doing some construction at the time.

Last week I was returning to Carlsbad and found a listing for a "new" Red Roof Inn. It turned out to be the same Motel 6. The entire property has been renovated. The rooms have been completely redone and they are brighter. They are still small and very basic, but now cost $62.99 a night.

As another reviewer mentioned, be sure to bring your shampoo and, I might add, your soda or juice and cooler, since the vending machines seem to be on the way out.

My husband and I stayed at the Red Roof with my 2 year old the last week of July. We paid $67 during peak season for a king-sized bed room. The room had just been renovated and everything seemed really new. When traveling with a toddler, or kids in general, the most important thing is that the room be clean, especially the bathtub. The bathroom was extremely clean and I didn't hesitate giving my baby a bath in it at all. The room was pretty basic, and a little bit small, but it was comfortable. We slept very well there. It's proximity to the beaches and Carlsbad Village is great. We probably wouldn't stay there again just because the room was a little too small, but we were extremely satisified with it otherwise.

I stayed at this Motel 6 twice as an alternative to the local $135.00 a night conference hotel. I paid about $37 on the web site for a room for the night. Check in was easy, it was right off the freeway and near lego land. They had a pool and there was also a very nice upscale shopping mall near by. Of course there are beaches but I did not see them during my stay. The rooms were a bit worn but clean. The phone had a data port and local calls were free so I could use my dial-up internet access easily. The in-room amenities are minimal. I have really never seen less. They give you one bar of soap and some towels.
Period. You better have remembered your shampoo and hair dryer. I was able to borrow an iron and mini ironing board form the hotel on one visit. The TV has cable with the normal channels. There is a small round table and chair in the room too. I also saw a coin laundry facility that was very clean and new looking. My average rating is more because the rooms were just a bit worn but for $37 you can't go wrong.
I will definitely stay there again.
