    It was okay

    Hotel dirty, dirty carpet, or black mold, made our feet black. Bathroom exhaust fan very loud & not working, room key cards much too touchy, had to replace 5 times in 4 days, several electrical outlets not working, coffeemaker had no outlet to plug it into & a baby sock behind console, closet smelled musty. Employees were nice. Every time I had a questions, they referred me to 3rd party booking. No manager available.

    Eh... ok

    It’s a La Quinta, so our expectations weren’t super high. But the top of the pool was covered with dead bugs… carpeted. I asked if they could skim it and they said they would but didn’t. Both ice machines weren’t working. The last night at 10:30 the carbon monoxide detectors went off calling the fire department so it was a rough night as everyone had to be evacuated, and we had a little one who doesn’t stay up that late. The staff said it was a false alarm and there wasn’t any fire. My husband who had inspected both the fire/smoke and carbon monoxide detectors said it was for sure not the smoke detector and asked the staff if the fire department had checked both and they couldn’t guarantee, but said we’d “probably be fine” (probably means we’d live through the night) not their fault but wasn’t reassuring, so we slept with the windows open, after considering sleeping in our car in the parking lot. But the 16 lane freeway was pretty noisy. Breakfast was ok/free. Staff was nice. And they let us leave our dog in his crate for a bit while we went out so that was nice. It’s ok. It’s about what you’d expect I guess.

    La Quinta Carlsbad

    Girls/Dog friendly weekend. Reasonable price, no pet fee. Easy checkin, rooms nice, clean, comply beds and bedding. Maid service attentive. Grab and go breakfast worked for us. The staff member needed more help, but she did a great job. First time traveling with my 14 lb Terrier. Not crazy about elevator but loved the stairs. Grassy areas for walking. Only thing I missed was “ a view”. But this is not a resort. Would definitely stay here again!

    Great Customer Service

    My dog has never had an issue with an elevator before, but he was deathly afraid of the elevator at this hotel. He is 118 pounds, so not easy to get on an elevator when he doesn't want to get on it. After spending one night there, he still wouldn't get on the elevator the next morning and he doesn't do stairs so I asked the front desk if it was possible to switch to a ground floor room and they had no issues helping me out at all. They didn't have any clean when I asked and said they would call me once they had one available for me and they were also willing to move all of my stuff to the new room for me. I declined that offer since I had a lot of stuff and some of it was heavy, but the offer was still amazing!! The hotel is definitely old, but the rooms have been updated and are very clean. The pet relief area was better than at most hotels and they even had doggie poop bags there. They are one of the most dog-friendly hotels I've been too in a long time!!

    Clean, Adequate Room

    We only needed to stay overnight with our dog in order to pick up a rescue bulldog 5-1./2 hrs from our home. Room was small and basic but served the purpose. We felt like it had been adequately sanitized. The A/C had a disinfectant smell which might bother some people. There is a large grassy area near the pool that was a very good pet area, and there are ivy beds right outside all the rooms.

    Dog friendly

    For an over night trip to Carlsbad it wasn’t bad, just needed a dog friendly place when we slept.

    Great Location

    Walking distance to the beach and shopping center (e.g., Starbucks, supermarket, gas station, food, etc.). Rooms were nice and plenty of grass for your dog.
