Pulling up to this hotel was beautiful. Seemed very tropical and classy. The parking arrangement was a little weird, but we figured out that valet wasn't much more, so we opted for that. The main building led me to believe the rooms were going to be just as classy. However, that building smelled like BBQ and unclean people every time...

My son and I chose to stay here while visiting Legoland because of its close proximity to the park, but the resort by itself would be enough of a draw! Every employee we encountered was very kind and helpful, and the grounds are well cared for. Our room was nice, clean and a good size. My only regret is that...

Nice hotel with lots of amenities. Very family friendly however the service is lacking not to mention it seemed we payed extra for every little thing. Proximity to legoland is ideal even having a private entrance for Sheraton guests. Personally would choose a different hotel next time.

We chose to stay at the Sheraton because of its proximity to Legoland. Having stayed before at the Legoland Hotel, we wanted to try the Sheraton to see what it would be like. The "private entrance" to Legoland is really just an unassuming booth, at which there is only one attendant. On the day we went, there wasn't a huge...

We stayed here with the kids for a Legoland vacation. The hotel is nice and a 2 minute walk to Legoland with your own personal entrance. We stayed in January so we didn't get to take advantage of the pool and resort etc which looked nice but it was just too cold. That did make the $18 resort fee hard...

Dear mdr9: Thank you for your review of the resort. Please keep in mind, the $16.00 resort fee is what helps cover the private "man'd" entrance to LEGOLAND which allows you to by-pass the lines and front entrances. It also covers our WIFI across the property, in-room Starbucks coffee, newspapers, free print, fax, and copy services, business center, and a...

The grounds, rooms, lobby and (our) views at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa are beautiful. We went in mid-November for a family getaway and had a great experience. Carlsbad is such a cute town and it was a very central place to stay for southern California - we really got to see a lot of places by staying between...

We checked in yesterday afternoon. The hotel lobby is very nice and well designed. Friendly staffs at the front door and check-in counter. As a Platinum member of SPG, I was given a room on the SPG floor (third floor). The other benefit was $32 credit towards breakfast at a very nice restaurant with friendly staffs. The room was large,...

Incredible grounds just a short drive to the beach and towns north of San Diego. The hotel itself was spectacular, the room was huge and just what we needed! Only downside- the hotel is right by legoland so we were awoken at 7 am to screaming kids. Assuming this is pretty standard considering the proximity to Legoland. Otherwise, great stay...

Dear tamar93: Are you sure the screaming you heard wasn't from the other adult guest displaying their enthusiasm and excitement for the spectacular room they may have been given? One can never be too sure, as excitement seems to be a contagious thing around here... at any age! ;) Hope to see you back soon!

“Garden side (east facing) would be quietest. West facing might have ocean views but it is also the vast open carparking area.”

“Rooms facing the north east don't have much scenery to look at”
