Rated 3 out of 5 by LindsayMM Nice, but felt nickled and dimed
First, let me say the hotel was beautiful and rooms were great. Staff - very nice. But, I did feel like we were nickled ad dimed. On top of the room, there's a resort tax and parking, so the price isn't what you think it will be,

A great facility with private entrance to LegoLand. Only 55 mins from Disneyland. The Exec Suite was worth it. A quick drive to the beach. Great local food. A quick 30 min drive from the San Diego Airport. Wish it had laundry facilities--that was the only problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vel68 This hotel is superb
Not only the facility but the employees were outstanding. Patty at the market went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. At the restaurant Eddie was accommodating, courteous, professional and the food was delicious. These employees should be commended for representing Sheraton in such a great way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mlrgrisar great place to stay for work or play!
Ive now stayed at the Sheraton Carlsbad @ Legoland four times and it's great every time. The staff is very welcoming yet it's a relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are always perfect. When you think they are hosting families going to a theme park next door, the resort is in great condition.
I recommend this Sheraton if you are in the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JimENJ The bartenders are great !!!!!!!!!
Have been staying at this hotel since it opened, about 3 years ago - the wine list, bartenders, and food are wonderful, I eat at the bar all the time, don't even go to Paon in Carlsbad too often - the health club has improved with more cardio equipment, and overall this is a great place to stay as it is 5 minutes to the beach !!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Legoland812 Family Friendly Hotel
Hotel staff is very courteous, room is comfortable and clean. The only issue we had is the type of room we reserved and not getting it. Though we did receive a small reimbursement for the room, I wasn't comfortable being on the ground floor. It is too accessible for anyone to walk into the room if the sliding glass door is open.

Rated 2 out of 5 by UnhappyGuest4 Hotel lacks basics
One of our rooms had a sliding door that you could not safety latch (latching pin didn't line up). Could not take tub bath because the valve on faucet was frozen in the shower position. These basics must be checked before the room is occupied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is too difficult to have workmen in when there are child guests.

Great location only thing I missed was the club lounge which I enjoyed in my last 2 stays.Property was neat and clean except for a few issues which Andrew-Front Office manager personally took care.
Andrew is a great asset to this property as he not only was helpful but did also called me back to check if everything is fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fruity123 Stop the smell
The hotel and staff were great but the "Sheraton Smell" was over powering!! My husband and I have lung problems and the heavy odor when one tries to do business at the desk or eat food in the restaurant is miserable. Have you ever tried to eat when all you can smell is Sheraton? Not meat, etc. How are your employees doing?

Rated 5 out of 5 by SilverBear If you are going to Legoland, Stay Here!
The ability to enter Legoland via a private entrance was totally worth the price of this hotel. Start at 10 and when the kids are pooped head back to the hotel and let the kids jump/play in the pool (which supplies noodles for the kids and adult beverage service for the adults!) Self park or valet... all was convenient.

I was a guest the week of the 20th. On Friday, I experienced chest pains and went to the lobby seeking help. The staff went into action immediately. Security was on the scene within minutes and the EMT's were there shortly thereafer. Thanks to the quick action, I want to thank you from the bottom of my stented Heart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MomofTwins Love this hotel, but.....
Twice or three times your staff started answering my question, "Since you are not a preferred SPG member" - and I interrupted and insisted I was, they looked again and had to apologize. Were there computer problems? Also - I booked several months in advance and requested a particuliar room or rooms in a specific area - when I pre-checked in they stated that I could have a room in that location. When I got back from Legoland, I had another room no where near what I requested. The bathroom had two broken items - the shower knob and hooks to hang towels. When I entered the Guest Lounge for breakfast, the attendent asked me if my co-worker was my daughter - we are the same age. The attendant was EXTRA nice after that...... My room key stopped working after 11 am, when I had a 12 pm check out, and when I called from the phone near the elevator, they said they would bring me a new key and I waited over 20 minutes. Had to change my check out to 1 pm. Great location though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KDOCO Great Family Vacation getaway
Kid-centric location thanks to Legoland private entry in walking distance (though we were underwhelmed with Legoland) and kid friendly pool and hot tub.
Had we planned a romantic weekend away as adults, I would have been bummed to have the place swarming with children, especially on the weekend during summer vacation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TimothyMartin Totally disappointed in Visa transaction!
The Sheraton was great until I got home. I was bragging about this place to all my family and friends about how wonderful it was. Not going to happen anymore! I Viewed my Visa card on line and saw the hotel had approx. $900.00 pending. My bill when I checked out was $184.00. I called and received the snotty answer from the girl that this is all done by the software. What the heck kind of answer is that? I then proceeded to call Visa and explain the situation. They told me that the hotels sometimes do this but this was entirely out of line. Visa told me that 184.00 would be the limit they put out. How dare The Sheraton over charge me for services that I did not warrant or give permission for. The bad taste in my mouth is still there and I hope this does not get swept under the rug by Sheraton. My name is Timothy M. Gill and I stayed at The Sheraton Carlsbad, CA for 5 nights. I travel a lot and I can assure you that the Sheraton will not be in my itinerary!!!!!!!!! P.S. Taste Still There!

It was my first time at sheraton carlsbad hotel. I wouldnt go again. Its expensive. I had to pay the room and parking and no free breakfast atleast. I stayed on the first floor and people on next floor up made so much noise in the night. The only thing i liked was legoland that was just outside the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MagS Bathroom improvement
1. The shower drain is blocked by tons of hairs. I need to clean them before shower. (It was discovered on my 1st day arriving). It seems there's no constantly checking on the facility cleaniness.
Bathroom amenities are not ready for registered guests headcounts.
This is a simple area that must improve!

I know this is a family resort, but it would be nice if you I could separate the biz travelers from the kids -- or put the kids on the ground floor. I stay at hotels mainly for sleep and this can be a problem when kids are bouncing off the floors/beds/walls early in the morning. I know I have two myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RBass great service
What the pool area was lacking in ambiance and service, the rest of the staff made up for.
I was disappointed that there was not a waterside or some other kid friendly structure by the pool since this hotel is advertised as being adjacent to Legoland, which naturally means families would be staying there. The towels were thin and small and there were no pads on the chaises. Our lunch bill came to over $70 and the food was on par with a fast food restaurant. Although the cost of food was akin to a high end hotel, the overall atmosphere was bland.
The only thing that saved this hotel were the nice room and friendly staff. Particularly the shuttle drivers who were knowledgeable and charismatic. Juan and Mike M to be exact.
Definitely keep the shuttle service since the location is up a hill and difficult to walk any where. This came in handy when my family went to Sea World leaving me without a car. I enjoyed the spa as well. Although compact, the space was well planned and the decor was beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HenryB303 Good but "extra" fees
Very nice Sheraton, & great location for Lego Land access etc. BUT I did NOT expect to pay extra for parking or resort/internet use etc. since that has never happened to me in the past as an SPG Gold member. I was surprised at the added expense of $24/day for each of 2 rooms.

This is my second stay and my husband's first stay at you hotel. We had a great room with an ocean view. The room was very large and comfortable. The location is great at the top of the cliffs, and very quiet with a beautiful sunset to view. We will certainly stay here again.

My wife and I were in Carlsbad for a two day business trip. We came back to our room to find that the maid did not replace the shampoo and body gel bottles and for whatever reason, removed the two cups from the bathroom. Otherwise, the room was comfortable and as advertised.

Given the location of the hotel to Legoland, this is hotel by no coincidence is a family hotel. So if you hate kids this hotel is not for you.
The stay was comfortable, the room was very clean and the staff was very attentive. Room service food was great and decently priced.

Not on the beach or walking distance to it, staff that weren't very helpful at the front desk and a barista who asked me a couple of times if I needed room for cream and sugar after I order my coffee black... Not typical of my Starwood experiences, I will not be back.
