Rated 1 out of 5 by Darrelx Not good for business meetings
The place was full of screaming children, but that is because of it being next to Legoland. Don't hold a business meeting here! Housekeeping knocked on my door to roust me from bed late at night with a pile of towels that I did not ask for, then the hotel tried to bill me for a $7 bottle of water that I did not use. I couldn't contact the hotel manager until after 9am... they don't have a night manager? The self-parking is severely limited, or you have to park far away... and there is no covered walk from the self parking to the hotel lobby, or from the hotel rooms to the lobby, making it very uncomfortable in bad weather. Internet service in the meeting rooms was throttled back to dial-up speeds, so when we cancelled our meeting room for the 2nd day so that we could use nearby office space with decent internet speed, they also inadvertantly cancelled our breakfast meeting, making our whole team late that day because the hotel had to scramble to arrange breakfast for us. Our team bailed and went to the restaurant instead.

I never expected such a great place & staff! Sometimes when a person stays at a hotel that is "associated" with a resort, service seems lack luster. NOT this Sheraton! From the room, to the staff, to the restaurant and everything in between - TOP NOTCH!!!!!!

We loved our first experience at Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. We were lucky enough to have one of the few suites which definitely enhanced our stay. The grounds & pool were beautiful. Outdoor games such as ping pong & foosball were fun. The fitness center was clean & above average. We didn't take advantage of the Spa on this trip but plan to in the future.
They only have one restaurant but we made ample use of it for breakfasts, lunch, happy hour, & dinners. The food was good & prices were reasonable for a hotel restaurant. They went above & beyond to make our anniversary extra special. In fact, the service everywhere at the resort was very good. Unfortunately, they no longer have a club lounge.
They are located right next to Legoland with a private entrance for guests. That can certainly be a bonus for families with children - or it can be a drawback. There were a few loud, rambunctious groups. If you know that going in, however, you can plan accordingly. We were looking for a peaceful, relaxing trip & we got it, for the most part, but I wouldn't expect that during spring break or summer. All in all, a great stay.

Had issues with room servcice and was on the second floor. The family up above on the third sounding like they were haveing a dance contest. Security supposedly went up there to tell them to be quiet but after the third ask finally some quiet.

This was my 1st time there. I was greatly impressed with the facilities and the staff. The restaurant was truly great, good selections and great prices. The rooms were spacious and the mattress was so very comfortable. Hope to try it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by roadwarrior52 Attitude Unacceptable
There "apparently" was a mix up in reservations for both me and a business companion - and four other people who showed up while we were waiting and waiting and waiting to be "helped"
Granted it was later (10pm) but the attitude of the desk staff was "not our problem" They handed us a few phone numbers we could call to try to get a room elsewhere - most of which were fleabags.
I got more help from a person at one of the numbers I found on my phone - he suggested trying two or three hotels in the area that he knew usually had a room or two.
The following day when we returned they said we were on the "pending' list.
FInally on checkout, I asked for an extra hour past their 11 am checkout time - Was told in a rather abrupt way - "No you need to be out of your room by 11 am!"
THIS from a supposed flagship resort.
Serious attitude from people who are supposed to be in the hospitality business.
The only staff who were helpful were the parking valets
If the conference I was attending hadn't selected this place as their site, I would never - ever return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sower53 Very clean
I managed hotels for years, when I stay at a hotel I always check the bathroom first, If it is spotless I know the rest of the room is clean. I was very impressed with this facility
customer service was A-1. Staff was very friendly.

During checkin the desk personnel do not mention that breakfast is continental only, they ask if you prefer BREAKFAST or additional SPG points. Oh yes, coffee is NOT included so be prepared to pay by the drink, silly as it may seem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Al60 This hotel is located next to Lego land.
This hotel stuggled with their daily room duties. Cleaning, ample towels and toiletries, Self parking is not adequate unless you want to pay for valet or walk a distance to your room. Evening restaurant service was not good.

I love this hotel. I stay here one week out every month and they treat me like family. Chis and his team at 20/20 are amazing. Julie and Betty in Banquets are the best in the industry and the front staff always welcoming.

Not only is your resort beautiful and its facilities top of the line but every interaction i had with your employees was extremely positive and immediately felt that I was treated like a family member/vip.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice and beautiful this hotel is when we arrived for our family vacation. Having private access to Legoland as a Sheraton guest was a plus too! Will definitely stay here again!

Nice, huge resort. Only issue we encountered was the fridge was not working properly so the food (and milk for a baby) all spoiled. We were compensated at checkout though so I have no complaints.

We spent just one night in prep for going to Legoland the next day. The restaurant was handy, and the food good. The very best part was being able to go into Legoland from the private entrance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JuneYoo Terrible service
Laundry service is never done even if i've put the bill (written by me) with my laundries together and it's same over all my stays(four days).. Just maid got my tips only, left the bill/laundry on my desk everyday..Also, even though i complained to Guest service, no answer over 1~2 hours every evening... why??? So, i tried to complain to the front desk, but she just said "NO service" today and tomorrow you can try again... is it the service for Sheraton? I've got many year-experience for Sheraton on China/Korea/..etc..
That kind of service mind is never ever seen.. Parking fee everyday (self-parking) and no enough room for it.
room cleaneness is the terrible, all stuff was kept on my table everyday.. i've regret to putting my tips (1~3$) everyday...
Especially, laundry service is not achieved over all my stays... this is the worst...
Why? I wrote Sheraton Laundry bill and put my laundry in the bag Sheraton wants..
I cannot understand it, by even now..
Carlsband sheraton service is very bad and very expensive than their serivce..
It's the first time for me to get this kind of bad feeling in Carlsband sheraton resort.
