The room was a great price, proximity to Legoland was good, pool was clean, room was comfortable, staff was wonderful, continental breakfast was tasty. We had only one complaint: you can hear EVERYTHING that is happening on either side of you, above and below you. I understand there isn't anything you can do about this, but I wore earplugs and could still hear people walking around, talking and using the bathroom. Would very much recommend this facility aside from this.

This is a very nice budget hotel. Scrupulously clean, well-run, professional staff. The design is secure and pleasant, with an interior facing courtyard for the rooms, only accessible through the front door, passing by the usually manned check-in desk. The provided breakfast was fine (bagels, toast, cereal, waffles) and well stocked by attentive staff. The room design and furnishings were good and up to date.
The only negative is that the property is immediately across a small road from the I-5. Our room, toward the back, was quiet enough; the freeway noise was not troubling in the room (though you could hear it). But the minute you step outside, it is pretty intense. This essentially makes the exterior courtyard pretty unusable. A sound barrier wall would be an enormous help and the neighborhood should be lobbying for one to be put in.
We didn't intend to lounge around the property anyway, using it as a springboard for visiting family in the area and other activities. So it was perfect for us, despite the freeway, and I would readily stay there again. The comfort of the room, secure operation, and convenient location make it a real winner for the price. Have been in much more expensive hotels that were truly not as nice, clean, and well run. Kudos to the management and staff.

Room Tip: request one toward the back, away from the freeway as much as possible

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Stayed here at the end of October 2013. I'm not saying its the Ritz, but this Days Inn had everything you'd expect plus a little bit more. We booked the room through Expedia and got a great rate for a one day Saturday stay for a group of friends in town for a North County brewery tour. Check in was quick and easy, and the front desk attendant was very accommodating by letting our group check in several hours prior to the posted check in time. The property looks newly renovated. The room was clean, and the furnishings and flat screen tv were all fairly modern. The bed was not amazing, but was comfortable enough to get a decent night's rest. Did not try the continental breakfast, so have no comment on that. Parking was free and there was certainly enough of it. The hotel is located just off the 5 freeway, which could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. In that case, I would suggest booking a room away from the freeway. Downtown Carlsbad Village is about 1 mile away and an easy walk or cab ride. We did not use the pool, though it looked clean and kept up, but a little on the small side.

Overall, for the price, we got what we expected and would probably stay again at this property under similar circumstances. Wouldn't recommend staying here if you are looking for the resort experience however.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the street/freeway.

We all had an awesome stay here. The rooms were very clean & the beds were super comfortable. I have no complains about our stay. We did not have a chance to use the pool but instead decided to go to the beach. My kids also enjoyed the stay.
The refrigerator in our room was a Plus!
