there was a slight issue with the temperature control thermostat next to the bathroom. it would get stuck when trying to adjust up or down. It was not a big issue, I notified the front desk when i checked out so the next guest would not have the same issue.

Spacious rooms with everything you would need to make meals at night. Staff was really helpful and friendly. The gym was also really nice and they had games available which is a cool option. Definitely would recommend.

Friendly Front Desk and nicely appointed rooms


March 03, 2021

Checked-in using a reward night stay and was welcomed and felt valued. Room was upgraded and felt homey. Bed was a little hard, but I was exhausted so hardly noticed. Cupboard needs a refresh. Quiet hotel and good night sleep. Very Friendly staff, they recognized me from the times I had spent at the hotel while working.

We escaped from Texas during the Winter Weather Event of 2021, and were greeted graciously by the staff upon our arrival. Hector was great, and Amanda was very helpful as well. If we ever find our travels take us to Carlsbad again we will certainly stay at this property.
