Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for our spring break. The room and entire hotel were very clean. The complimentary breakfast was a nice addition to the overall experience. Most of all, we can't say enough good things about the staff! They were highly accommodating and very friendly! We would definitely stay here again!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017

I read all of the reviews before booking with the West. All of them were true. The West Inn and Suites truly gets service right. They helped me with my golf clubs getting shipped to and from the West, they were fantastic with our 6 year old, and the shuttle service was really helpful. Location is great. Don't be afraid...

Where do I start. Was a little skeptical with all the positive reviews here, but it lived up to its expectation and beyond. From email & telephone confirmation to a warm check in at the front desk. All staff were personal and attentive. We stayed at second floor and love the location because we didn't have to wait for the...

This place delivered well I have to say. Nice rooms, great breakfast, good pool, friendly staff and a great locations. Very close to the outlets, and has a "built in" steak house and gas station as well. Trifecta of good! Pros: Room size, beds (quite good), location, cleanliness, staff, breakfast (full on), pool, and layout. Room 115 was very good....

The hotel is centrally located and has many choices of eating places right near by. The hotel is very well kept up and very clean. The rooms were nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. The breakfast was on the order of a Hampton Inn and Suites..certainly decent, but not extravagant. The best part of the hotel is the attentive...

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It is very conveniently located close to many tourist attractions, right across the freeway from the Carlsbad outlets, flower fields, and Legoland. The hotel compound has a gas station and a restaurant that I didn't try, but the menu had good selections for both adults and children. The lobby was very welcoming and...
