Carlsbad West Inn & Suites makes the top 25

The independent boutique hotel is the only San Diego property, and one of only two in California to make TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Top 25 Small Hotels & Motels for Families in the United States list for 2013. Since opening in 2006, the 86-room hotel has consistently ranked #1 out of 32 hotels in Carlsbad placing ahead of chain hotels such as the Sheraton, Park Hyatt Aviara and the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa. Located within a five minute drive of LEGOLAND and two blocks from the beach, West Inn & Suites differentiates itself by providing the ultimate in luxurious detail with a classic style. Kids’ facilities include a trained concierge called The Kids’ Ring Leader who is prepped with area activity suggestions from a child’s perspective such as advice on everything from where to find the best hot fudge sundae to insider tips on visiting LEGOLAND.

“Winning this award five years in a row is a true testament to our ongoing commitment and investment in our employee training programs to be able to consistently deliver extraordinary customer service,” said Kim Akers, vice president of West Hospitality.  “To find this level of service at a $159 price point is a rare combination.”

The property provides competitive rates with excellent facilities including everything from complimentary shuttle service anywhere in Carlsbad, hot breakfast, and parking to wine tastings and cookies and milk at night for guests. In addition, all of the rooms offer king size beds with many suites incorporating two king beds and a separate sleeping area with a queen sleeper sofa.  On-property amenities such as two restaurants, a gas station, and its own dog park for pet friendly guests, add to the convenient location for Carlsbad visitors.
